I'm not going to see it your way, I'm going to see it the way God wrote about it in the Bible. I'm glad you mentioned that Gay marriage is spoken agasin't in the Bible. The fact of the matter is that God is going to judge sinners whether they think he is mean or not period. God hates sin and he judges it we find that example time and again in the Bible. I'm not trying to judge people for their sin thats God's job i'm trying to warn you that if you don't accept Christs salvation you will be judged.
You're glad I mentioned something I never said?

Interesting. Care to show me where you say Same Sex marriage is mentioned and that it's condemned?

BTW how do you feel about clergy facing fines and prison for practicing their faith? In Indiana if a minister blesses a same sex couple he or she can be jailed for 180 days and fined $1000.

I suspect that isn't the only State that has such laws. And your silence about this speaks volumes.

Marriage in the USA means that two people will become an entity where certain rights, protections, and benefits will be accorded to them. These things came about largely for one reason. That reason being children.
Religion should have nothing to do with legislation.
what makes you believe that, in this day and age when nobody should be having children, that breeding has anything to do with marriage.

I'm guessing it's not Romans 2:1-16.

No, you are going to believe your own interpretations of the Bible, because they fall into line with your own personal biases and beliefs. That's different than listening to God.

Gay people may be sinners, but being gay and forming families isn't the sin. God never EVER spoke directly about gay people, nor did he speak against them falling in love and forming loving families in the same way that his straight children do.

It would be vicious and disgusting if He did, since no one can choose to be gay, and He alone creates that orientation in some people.

God blesses our lives, our families, and our children in ALL the same ways He blesses everyone else's. To then condemn gay people for accepting the blessings He sends would be some sort of colossal and vicious game.

My God isn't like that. If yours is, then you might want to rethink your cult and start to follow Jesus.

You can blame God and the Bible all you want, but the truth is you have chosen your beliefs, they aren't God's fault. <quoted text>I'm disappointed that you would engage in such false witness, if you have read the Bible, you would know that the subject isn't even mentioned, let alone "spoken against". Such little Christian lies are commandment breakers.<quoted text>You do realize that you too are a sinner, do you not? <quoted text>All that information available to you and you learned so little. <quoted text>Any assessment on your part of anyone's progress or lack thereof in that direction is you judging. God decides who has gotten it right, you have no say.


Man read it for yourself, God pronounced judgement after judgement on cities and even countries for their sins and it happend exactly how he said it would, its no different today Jesus Christ has commanded all men everywhere to repent. I more than realize that i'm a sinner however all my sins are paid for, what about you Christ has offered you a salvation from sin, and hell whats holding you back? I'm not judgeing you or anyone else for the lifestyle their living thats their business however i'm not excepting that their born that way. God has offered everyone, everywhere a salvation from their sins man has just rejected Jesus Christ, Christ has offered everyone new life, hope, and salvation Hear ye him!!! Judgement is coming and no mans sins will be overlooked.

Let me ask you this question, does God bless a people or a society who are immoral?

It doesn't matter if one doesn't believe as you do......that's something you don't get!!!!

The bible may be relevant to you, but it is not relevant to others or the laws of this Country.

Sorry, but that's why our Founding Father's worked hard to separate Church and State.......they didn't want to live under one particular religion!!!

Hey you bone head! This nation is NOT a theocracy as much as you want to believe it! This nation is in fact a "Secular" nation and has been from it's inception! Believe what you will but keep it in your church and stop trying to make others live by your beliefs! That is my right as an American citizen!

God blesses gay people, their families, and their children. Isn't that the more pertinent answer? If God had an issue with gay folks, then why does He keep making them, and blessing them?

A question for you.

Can you show that love, commitment, marriage and family life are immoral, but ONLY if gay folks value them? Why does God - in your opinion - set two separate and opposite standards? You have to admit that this is an odd idea.

So, if loving others and loving God "seemeth right", then the wages of such are death? Not committing murder seemeth right to me, so I shall die because of THAT?

That's the problem with tossing out of context verses at others as weapons. It may sound good to you, but it simple doesn't apply in all circumstances.

Can you show me that God loves homosexuality? In Leviticus 18 the Bible describes it as an abomination to God.

I've said it a million times I'll say it again Leviticus is not the only book in the Bible! I can give you at least four more and they are mentioned as sin. Furthermore it said that it is an abomination to God.
