I blame this crap on Obama....he's emboldening these types and they are coming out of the closet in full force because they know they have a gay in the WH who supports them.

I agree with American Infidel's first comment.
It really isn't marriage as defined by God.

The danger, though, is that this truth of forgery is going to get buried, and pretty soon people won't know what is according to God and what isn't.

Already, almost 50% of Christian people in this country don't have a clue that their religious freedoms have been eliminated. They don't know
that when they purchase health insurance, they
are contributing to murder.

If they knew that, they wouldn't stand for it.
They'd be yelling and protesting and you name it,
they'd be against it.

But they've been so-o-o-o tricked and lied to.

The same here with this gay marriage. People---
kind and good people, yet----think that it is cruel to not allow these people to legally think that they are 'married.'

I'll tell you....just the opposite is true. It is
cruel to not tell them! At the end of their lives
they are going to wake to a very very startling fact that people having sexual relations with the same sex is not approved of by God. Period.

Is God going to be mean to them because they behaved as they have behaved? No. They will instead be before supreme goodness and truth and light and they will look at themselves in utter horror!
They will wish to be cast to hell because of what they have done against God. The pain will be
that unbearable.

No it is not cruel to tell the truth and save them from this.

However, because God gives us free will....this country should allow people to engage in alternative sexuality if THEY REALLY WANT TO!
They shouldn't be allowed to call it marriage.
It should be called civil union.
However, they should know that this activity is against God before they willingly choose such.

Can you imagine a person who in the flesh desires his or her own personal satisfaction from the same sex BUT instead chooses GOD'S wish?

The soul will be honored in heaven, even more so
than people who have not the same physical challenges!

Deep down inside, they're not really "happy"...because they know theyre living a lie and no piece of paper will eliminate the fact that their chosen lifestyle is a ruse, its fake, fraudulent and phoney and will always be frowned upon in any civilized society.

Frown all you want, but we'll continue to expand marriage equality across the country.

Sweetie, if that's the lie you need to tell yourself, you go right ahead, but I can't help but to feel sorry for anyone who would want to go through life with that kind of ugliness in their heart. I hope your God will forgive you, but from my reading of Christianity, Jesus don't know you in the slightest and apparently doesn't want to.

According to your free will choice of beliefs dear, whether or not what you have chosen to believe is what God actually believes is pretty much up in the air. Yes, yes, you can say that there all sorts of scriptures that support your choice, but that fails to take into account the many, many Christians who have read the same scripture you have but have chosen an entirely different message for God's lesbian and gay children.

If you don't want to believe that same sex couples can never be married in the eyes of your God, you go right ahead and good luck with that, I have a feeling you might need it, but just because you have chosen to believe in a disapproving God doesn't mean that no one has the right to believe in an approving one.

Um...I don't live a life of lies, I have a life...a REAL life...youre the one with issues.

Nice attempt at trying to turn the tables and make me feel guilty and as if Im the one that's doing something wrong here when everyone knows who the fcked up one REALLY is.

btw, you shouldn't feel sorry about me, you should feel sorry about yourself....youre the one with ugliness in your heart and hatred for who you REALLY are.

Sweetie, what you are failing to grasp is that from my point of view, your choices are seriously flocked up, but whether that matters or not isn't up to me, now is it? You are more than free to test your anti-gay God theory and even though you really should feel guilty as all get out for doing so (in my less than humble opinion), you are free to not to too. THAT is how free will works.

I have absolutely no hatred for either myself nor the gift your good Lord gave me dear. the thought that you imagine that I should, or would even want to is an incredibly sad one for you to be holding onto. I have absolutely no hatred for folk like you either. You're lost, you're happy with that, who am I to judge? I shine you a light, whether you follow it or not, that is entirely up to you.

Dr. James B. Nelson, Professor of Christian Ethics, United Theological Seminary, believes "what the Bible forbids is acts of lust, rape, idolatry, violation of religious purity obligations, or pederasty, but not condemnation of homosexuality in relationships of mutual respect and love."

"The New Testament and Homosexuality" Robin Scroggs, Prof of New Testament at Union Theological Seminary is a serious theologian and is favorable reviewed by many theologians. He is a happily married heterosexual with no personal bias. He includes cites from Boswell and expands further especially on pederasty and concludes there is nothing biblically wrong with homosexuality.

"What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality" by Daniel Helminiask, PH.D., was ordained as a Catholic priest in 1967 and is incardinated in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. From 1981-1985 was Assoc Prof for Systematic Theology at Oblate School of Theology and earlier completed his Ph.D. in systematic theology at Boston College and Andover Newton Theological School. He concludes the Bible says absolutely nothing about homosexuality being sinful when you examine the actual Hebrew/Greek texts."

Baptist Rev Dr. William R. Stayton, Divinity degree from Andover
Newtown Theological School and on faculty of LaSalle University's Grad program in Religious studies:- "There is nothing in the Bible regarding homosexual orientation. In fact, the Bible does not concern itself with sexual orientation. It does speak against gang rape, male prostitution for religious purposes, and pederasty. I lead bible study programs on this subject and am convinced that the Bible does not address the issue of a person's sexual orientation."

There is much disagreement about what the bible says. Our founders were well aware of the atrocities committed by religious groups in the name of "saving" them, and that is why they attempted to separate religion from the law and require all laws treat all persons equally under the law. Our laws rely on the constitution, not any person's interpretation of any ancient religious text.

Actually most same-sex couples never even thought about marriage as a possibility until around the 1990's. We've only been seriously working on it for the past decade, and we've already got 9 states with 3 more likely this year. This will snowball until the SCOTUS finally overturns the remaining bans by the end of the decade.

So in 20 years we will have gone from ZERO states with marriage equality to all 50 states with marriage equality.

Not bad for a "small minority"........

Why should we believe what liberal quacks sympathetic towards the gay agenda say?

Read Romans 1:18-32....it says a lot about sexual orientation...maybe that liberal quack should learn how to read. Dumb quack head.

All of those states are corrupt liberal states that used left wing activists judges and corrupt politicians that were being paid off by gay lesbian groups to force feed their gay agenda. They're all being challenged and when it finally reaches SCOTUS those fake gay marriages will be deemed null and void...heeheehaha

Keep your sexist pet names to yourself....Im SIR American Infidel to you, buddy. In my opinion, and yes, I am entitled to MINE OWN OPINION....if youre gay, you have a great disdain, a deep hatred for who you really are and will never truly be happy with yourself.

Sorry pal, but the people voted in 3 of those states to grant marriage equality to same-sex couples.

The only thing being challenged in court are the bans on same-sex couples marrying. Every court to date have overturned Prop 8 & DOMA, as will the SCOTUS.

Hehehehehehehehe!
