Only gay men will make it to heaven

They will only be redeemed from among men, and they have to be the first fruits

Men who have sex with women won't get in

Revelation 14:1> And I looked, and loe, a Lambe stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundreth fourty and foure thousand, hauing his Fathers Name written in their foreheads.
.
Revelation 14:2> And I heard a voice from heauen, as the voice of many waters, and as the voyce of a great thunder: and I heard the voyce of harpers, harping with their harpes.
.
Revelation 14:3> And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the foure beasts, and the Elders, and no man could learne that song, but the hundreth and fourtie and foure thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
.
Revelation 14:4> These are they which were not defiled with women: for they are virgines: These are they which follow the Lambe whithersoeuer hee goeth: These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits vnto God, and to the Lambe.
.
Revelation 14:5> And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

So it behooves all you self-appointed orgasm police to stop trying to get us gay guys to defile ourselves with women
.
YOU will cause us to lose our ticket for the trolley ride to glory
.
So butt out

Keep marriage one man and one woman for posterity.
You just made an argument for NOT banning gay couples from legal marriage, followed up with a irrational demand that makes no sense.

Why?

So, living a good life, working hard, caring for others, falling in love, marrying, cherishing your spouse, and raising wonderful kids are all a fast ticket to hell if you happen to be only attracted to the same gender?

What an odd notion. Aren't these considered GOOD things? Godly things?

Oswald was innocent. Liberace took a 16-year-old boy and destroyed his life.
You want to pretend that isn't so.
You're a school teacher who tells his students homosexuality is special, beautiful, and normal -- but if it's that, why Catholic priests? Why Larry Brinkin? Why that Senate aide busted with all that kiddie porn on his hard drive? Why couldn't Liberace stay away from underage boys?
Answer these questions -- and telling us about Oswald is a dodge, not an answer.
Thorson was a gold-digging twink. He knew what he was up against when he met the 48 Y.O. liberace. The man developed a serious addiction problem (allegedly after surgery) and the rest is history. He's hardly the poster boy for homosexuality any more than Janice Joplin, Lydsey Lohan, Robert Downey Jr., River Phoenix, or Jimi Hendrix are the poster peeps for heterosexuality.

My students may, or may not, know that I'm gay. It has never been a topic of discussion because my professional demeanor in the classroom does not involve talking about my personal life. As much as you like to fantasize about gay and lesbian teachers proselytizing in the classroom, it just isn't happening. Between common core, state standards, standardized testing and district benchmarks, there's no time to cover anything not related to the subject matter.

For every gay man with kiddie porn on his CPU, we can list you dozens of straight men in the same boat. You're just trying to blow smoke up everyone's skirt with this claim.

As to your last question, how many underage boys did Liberace "have"?

No sh!t. That's what we are arguing about dummy. Please pay attention!

Let me remind you. I say polygamy shouldn't be illegal because the reason it is illegal is moral disapproval, which SSM has proven is not a valid reason.

And you say "Ah, duh, drool, polygamy is illegal in 50 states! drool"

Oh dear, I see you're still too drunk to comprehend what I actually wrote.
I said if polygamists were qualified for equal protection of marriage laws, then they would be able to marry.
They can't.
So obviously they're not.
Now sober up and get back to me...
I'm drunk and you're stupid. Tomorrow I will be sober but you'll still be stupid.

"not qualified for equal protection" Too funny! Boy is that dumb! Everyone is qualified for equal protection you imbecile! That's what it means. Duh!

That's just NUTZY THINKING! God did not make you gay. You came into contact with this learned behavior right here on planet earth and decided DEBAUCHERY was for you. This is something the ancient Israelites pulled. What? They copied the customs from the heathen nations around them & even adopted their gods until ALMIGHTY GOD GAVE THEM A GOOD SPANKING by removing them from the land & into captivity.Understand? Homosexuality is a learned behavior that has nothing to do with Almighty God. CHRISTIANS LOVE & CARE ABOUT OUR GAY BROTHERS & SISTERS, but it is our duty to caution you when you are heading down the wrong path ... Or GOD CALLS US ON THE CARPET FOR NOT TELLING YOU. WE ARE THE WATCHERS ON THE WALL.
If being gay is a choice, then you should be able to tell us when you chose to be straight.

Brian, you are an idiot.
Procreation is possible outside of marriage, and has no bearing upon legal marriage.
Even Justice Scalia has pointed out the lack of correlation between procreation and marriage.
Scalia dissenting in Lawrence v Texas
"If moral disapprobation of homosexual conduct is “no legitimate state interest” for purposes of proscribing that conduct, ante, at 18; and if, as the Court coos (casting aside all pretense of neutrality),“[w]hen sexuality finds overt expression in intimate conduct with another person, the conduct can be but one element in a personal bond that is more enduring,” ante, at 6; what justification could there possibly be for denying the benefits of marriage to homosexual couples exercising “[t]he liberty protected by the Constitution,” ibid.? Surely not the encouragement of procreation, since the sterile and the elderly are allowed to marry." Scalia's dissent in Lawrence v Texas http://www.law.co r nell.edu/supct/htm l/02-102.ZD.html
Grow a brain.
Dum Dum Dum. Some married up mens and womens don't have babies but they can if they wants to. Two lisbins and two gays can't have kids. If we is going to keep havin people it is going to be married mens and womens to do it. I says again that putting a pecker in a mouth or a pecker is nasty. I reckon that that is all two gays can do. Ok let them do it but don't tell me that nature sit up that way. How about you gays doing your thag and just shut up about it.

Well over 50% percent of Americans approve of marriage equality.

What do recent polls show in terms of support for polygamy?

Its not illegal, its simply not legally recognized as of yet. Only one wife is legally recognized, the remainder, are basically, "common law", or religiously recognized, spiritualized, wives. Significant difference between it being illegal, and not legally recognized.
No different than SSM, which is legal in every state, simply not legally recognized in most.
How do you stay so calm and patient with this idiot "sheeples" and his stupid schtick that consenting adult polygamists shouldn't be allowed to marry because they are children and forced into marriage?

Sure it is. There is nothing better than a loving committed relationship.
But still you won't allow it to be formalized in marriage if it involves more than two people.

Here is what I wants to aak you. If a grown up man gits real close to a 13 or 14 year old boy and gits him to let him play with is pecker and then gits him to let him put it in his mouth will the boy feel sick at his stomick or will he like it. You knows that the pecker is made to really feel good if it is fooled with. If he feels sick to his stomick will he grow up to have a troubled mine? If he likes it wiil he turn into a gay?

First Larry Brinkin, then the fellow above. And it's kind of hard for the LBGT community to deny they're homosexual when they're both such promonant homosexuals. Brinkin was San Francisco's most "distinguished" gay. They busted him with more kiddie porn on his hard drive than you could shake a bottle of water-based lub at.
It's not rocket science, folks. A glance at their gay pride parades is more evidence than anyone with a brain can see -- homosexuality breeds degeneracy,
Nothing "gay" about it.....he was into little girls.

Correction- they can live openly as husband, wife, pretend wife, pretend wife, pretend wife, without fear of state prosecution.

They can still only be legally married to one person at a time.

Probably the same way we stay calm when confronted with idiots who can't count, and make utterly irrelevant arguments.
