Then you should have no problem drinking a quart of Draino. God your protector says you can, since you believe, why not prove it to us that you truly are protected by God and that you believe. You can do something like drink a quart of Draino and when it does not hurt you then we'll all know you are not a liar and God is real and the Bible tells the truth.

Go for it. Why not call 60 minutes so they can film you drinking that quart of Draino? The world needs to see how reliable and truthful the Bible is.

"Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you"--John 16:23;

More proof that the Bible can not be trusted because it is just plain stupid.

Occasionally believers actually do do what the Bible teaches:

"If any man come to me, and not hate his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethern, and sister, yet, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple"--Luke 14:26.

It's rare but like with this example, it does happen. Imagine teaching that to children in Sunday school.

Biblicists are not to oppose evil:

"But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil; but whosoever shall smite thee on the right cheek, turn to him the other also"--Matt. 5:39.

If there were any Christians in America there would not be any need for law enforcement.

I think I did a damn good job answering your question the first time, given your piss-poor sentence structure.
I had to try to figure out exactly what you are asking. If I didn't answer you question to your satisfaction, maybe you can repeat the question I a more coherent manner.
Is there supposed to be a comma before the word "only"? And the phrase "to the constitution"; what does that mean?
Any amendment to the Constitution would make the Constitution constitutional.

I don't know what's wrong with you and Pietro... You're both having difficulty making your points.
Are you both drinking?
You constantly talk about "reality". You define marriage as between one man and one woman as being the only "real" marriage.
So, according to your response above, that would make you a "child".
You are the one who claimed that 'equality is in the eye of the beholder'. A position that would make it impossible for any court to render judgment.

You once again are backed into a corner with your idiotic claims, so you resort to gay twirl ad homoan attacks.

That depends how one defines "real". SSM is a virtual modern western invention, with no deep rooted, sustained cross cultural, cross time, structure. Certainly not in Western Civilization. Hence the use of the word "real".
Again, you place so much importance on "history" and "cultural traditions".

How many times have I pointed out the fact that the institution of slavery has been almost universally present for eons on the planet. And today it is almost universally extinct.

The entire world, over the course of a few hundred years, has managed to almost completely eradicate slavery--something that's been around for thousands of years.

The same ENLIGHTENED ideology that did away with slavery--the notion that all people are created equal--is the very basis of treating LGBT citizens in this country as equal to all other citizens.

So, while treating gay people with some degree of respect seems like a foreign concept to some of you Neanderthals, the notions of "freedom" and "equality" have been around for about 300 years.

Asking for, demanding, and getting equal treatment in this country is not a novel, new concept.

Don't get confused again.

Yes, equality certainly is in the eye of the beholder. And for centuries, mankind has been focusing on that issue.

Each time the question is raised, "Are we as a society treating everyone justly?", individuals and groups have differing responses.

Since the beginning of this country, issues of religious freedom/equality, gender equality, racial equality, handicap equality, and others have been raised and addressed. They're still being addressed.

Over the past several decades, the question of LGBT equality has been raised. And based on how previous questions concerning equality and freedom for various groups has been answered, those related to LGBT issues are being answered as well.

Our court system, legislative process, etc. "beholds" issues of LGBT equality through the same lenses that they have looked at gender, racial, religious, and disability issues.

That's how equality is in the eye of the beholder...

Really...for such an advanced intellect such as yourself, such a comparison as that is clearly the province of a lesser mind. We're discussing the basic unit of society.

See above.
The same ENLIGHTENED ideology that did away with slavery--the notion that all people are created equal--is the very basis of treating LGBT citizens in this country as equal to all other citizens.
So the enlightened ideology that ended slavery is, again, comprable to treating "LGBT" citizens equally. I see so LGBT citizens were once slaves?
So, while treating gay people with some degree of respect seems like a foreign concept to some of you Neanderthals, the notions of "freedom" and "equality" have been around for about 300 years.
"Gay" as a virtually exclusive reference to homosexuality is relative new. Perhaps we should revert to the previous definition of a "gay man", a womanizer. Ironic is it? Equality means we treat ALL men as men, and ALL women as women. Not a man as a woman, or vice versa.
Asking for, demanding, and getting equal treatment in this country is not a novel, new concept.
Don't get confused again.
Yet u ask not for equal treat in regards to marriage, but for something else. You seek to redefine the definition of marriage in order to conform with your notion of "equality", not equality as it applies to anyone else of your sex. If we are to treat all men equally, as all women, then each sex has the same right to enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, recognized, and valid nationwide. So which is it? Do u want special treatment, or to be treated like any other man in this regard?

There are more slaves now, then at any time in history.

But the real idiotic distortion is imposing a fake, imposter relationship on marriage, and equating that to the battle against slavery.

You are a shameless reprobate.
