What's your idea of a protection scheme?
Jesus never said anything like that. As for torment for all eternity. I'm a Seventh Day Adventist and we don't believe in eternal damnation. Neither by the way did the Jews from whence Christianity sprung.

I already told you. Legalizing gay marriage further opens the door for you and your friends to teach your perverted ideas about sexuality to other people's kids.

My belief is in Jesus Christ as my savior. I cannot say I believe literally all that is written in the historical notes of the Old Testament, but I do believe Jesus is God. You can decide what is absurd to suit yourself. I have no problem with that. It doesn't change my feelings toward the salvation Jesus offers to all who seek it.
Its strange to read this from you based on your previous posts. Salvation from what?

Marriage is a religious covenant between a man and a woman blessed by a religious faith. There is no form of religious faith that sanctions marriage by definition in any other form. Its that simple Gay Marriage is therefore impossible.
A civil union on the other hand is a form on contractual agreement between two people. That's the best you can do there. To call it marriage is to pervert the term. Why not then let me marry my sister or a father his daughter, or multiple wives?
Sorry marriage exists in only one form...the joining of a man and a woman.
For you to compare same sex marriage to incest and poligmy absolutely discust me you sick bastard

Like what?

Like treating others the way you would like to be treated? Like respecting other folks' families? Like not bullying any kid who is different?

You can't teach a kid to BE gay. You CAN teach them that some folks ARE gay, and that they need to be treated the same way that everyone else is.

And what's wrong with that? Why is that perverted?

Who is harmed by treating other people well?

A great many gay people have already accepted Jesus, despite the hatred, distrust, and vilification heaped on them by people who claim to be His followers. But it hasn't changed a one of them form gay to straight.

That's because being gay IS god's plan for them.

If you don't like that God creates so many gay folks, then you really need to complain to Him.

There is not now, nor has there ever been, any proof that any god has ever existed.

Gays and lesbians are fine just the way they are and don't need to change.

That won't un-gay you no matter how much you study. Besides, the New Testament is very limited in scope. If you fail to understand how the people who wrote the Hebrew Scripture practiced their religion, the New Testament is meaningless.

Again, no where did Jesus say anything like that. He came to tell all to divorce themselves from the tortures of the world and to be happy with whatever they were given in life, waiting for the reward they would receive in the new Jerusalem. Men made the hell of eternal damnation to scare people into doing whatever they were directed by their ruling class. I didn't fear death before I was a Christian and have no reason to fear it now. I look forward to that day, because I know I will never die in the new Jerusalem. I don't see the problem here.

Your thinking is the perverted variety. You don't teach children to be gay. You're either gay or you're not and gays don't engage in any sex that straights don't frequently engage in.

What is being taught to kids is not dependent on the legal status of gay marriage.

And why are you against children knowing that some people are attracted to members of the same sex? After all, some of those children are gay. Don't you think it's better they know there are other people like them?
