Between 2000 and 2005, the number of same-sex couples in the United States increased by more than 20 percent, according to the Williams Institute, a think tank concerned with laws and public policy related to sexual orientation.

You don't know what that means, so you let me explain it to you.
You are assuming a lot of lesbians try to look (sic) and imitate a man. And like many idiots, you figure using multiple punctuation marks will make up for your lack of a rational argument.
Thats it tell him how u feel.

Korn, you have only one thing in all of this. Interpretation. From the authors of the books of the bible to those who this day turn their back on absolute reality to follow their own interpretation of the bible. It is all flawed. None of it is truth for none of it can be proven as absolute fact. None of it can even be proven as magic.
In all of reality there is one absolute, the one truth that can not be denied. The very fabric of the universe itself. The universe works harmoniously within its own way. We are part of that way. Many label it, or name it as God's works. In doing so we become seperate from the universe. We create a dual nature with it. People are led to reduce the perceived "chaos" in the universe by making a supernatural religious appeal because that seems more effective than one's own attempts to understand their connection to the universe.
You sit here and promote your faith which is based on nothing more than your opinion. There is nothing of truth in your opinion when you can't say "look, here is the hand of god". You as an individual nor can the interpretations of those 2000 years passed can produce anything that comes close to even suggesting that what you are so willing to sell is fact
Korn I tell you this. The universe is fact. It manifests itself in so many levels of reality. Go in your back yard and pick a blade of grass and know that what you hold is the recycled matter from our ancestors, animal life and the very essence of dying stars.
Now I don't want to bring down your belief in some devastation crash of a house of cards. Go on live life. Live a good life. Put faith in that you need faith to be a good person. Just have some respect and leave people who don't believe in fairy tales alone.
Angel Nicole, very nice name and very good post.

My friend, The world around us is the best evidence and proof that God created the universe. The very existence of the universe cannot be understood or explained using our five senses. The actual creation of this world was a miracle and cannot be explained by natural phenomenon. These Bible verses show proof that God created the universe; John 1:3, Hebrews 11:3, Genesis 2:7, and Romans 1:20.

Matter did not create matter and Dust did not create dust. We were not just a big accident, we were created with Love and with perpose. Many people deny God so that they can put their interests above Him.

The whole Universe has its perpose in helping us, like Jupiter which mops up many of the stray meteors, comets and asteroids which might otherwise impact the Earth and cause mass extinctions of life.

We have the Moon that is so large and so close to us that it is able to moderate any excessively large shifts in the tilt of the Earth's axis. Without this, the planet's climate would fluctuate dramatically, making it very difficult for most living creatures to survive.

Water has a higher heat of vaporization than any known substance. This makes water the best possible coolant by evaporation, and living creatures use this to control their temperatures.

If you belive all this to be just one big accident, then which is the fairy tale? The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." Psalm 14:1.

There is also alot of proof ouside of the Bible that confirms Biblical events. If you like I would post them.

No one chooses to burn for all eternity in a lake of fire - seriously, you sound psychotic. If your god is real and hell is real then it is, in fact, your god that consigns people to eternal suffering.
Your god = evil.
My friend, God has done everything He possibly can to keep you out of Hell and still leave you as a person with free will and not just a robot, for across the road to Hell he has placed the cross of Christ.

But forget not that anyone can be saved, all you have to do is except Him into your Heart. Hell was not created for us, Hell was created for Satan and his Demons. But the Devil tricks us into ignoring God and by doing this causes us to go down with him. I say to you my friend DO NOT BE FOOLED. You are no fool so do not be fooled by him. The Devil messed up what he had and now he wants to take down as many people with him as he can. DO NOT BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. For this is why we Pray and this is why we Love.

And you wonder why I call you an unrepentant thief and a pathological liar? You have no faith, just a really bad collage of thoughts you have ripped off because you thought they sounded good. Calling us your friend is just as vacuous as 'your' supposed thoughts on the nature of God.

You enjoy scriptural lessons, well ripping them off anyways. If you actually do own a Bible, try Matthew 7:15-23 on for size. Your Jesus, wise fellow, He warned us about people like you.

You are incorrect - there is one more thing your god could do to keep people out of hell AND keep free will intact:

God could eliminate hell.

There are no sections of the Bible that say anything of the sort.
The ONLY scripture that your type likes to use is not a definition of marriage, but Jesus' proclamation of when Divorce is allowed.
And Christians today completely ignore that when they divorce in such large numbers, so how can any of them have the nerve to twist it into something against gay folks?
And while Jesus was discussing divorce he defined marriage. Its right there in black and white. The reason the Bible never comes out and says "men can't marry men" is because the whole idea is preposterous. It doesn't say "men can't marry cows" either.

Its just not what marriage is.

It's right next to the passage that says men can't marry animals. Oh wait...it doesn't say that directly. You and your dog are safe but it does say you can't have sex (Lev 18:23). Kind of spoils the honeymoon...eh?

You don't think much of marriage comparing it to bestiality.

What a pity your mind is so small.

Please fill free to add into the bible all those things god 'forgot' to say.

God consigns no one to eternal suffering. He provides an opportunity to spend eternity in the paradise of the New Jerusalem. If you do not seek your salvation you won't be burned forever in a sea of fire. You simply won't exist in the paradise the saved will share with Jesus.

It Buy-bull says both the man and the dog would have to be put to death.

absolutely nothing. People are just using religion as an excuse to escape reality.
gay marriage, marriage, its the same thing. As long as you love one another, you should have the right to publicly be known as a "married couple"
These homophobic retards are just scared of the fact of gays being happy.
To gay marriage, youve got my support.

Hmmm...I guess that makes it pretty clear how God feels about the matter.

That's how god used to feel about the matter. Or don't you believe that Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament?
And we're still waiting for you to explain why your religious beliefs should control the lives of other Americans who don't share your religious beliefs.
