You're demonstrating the utter depth of your ignorance again. There are many Christian LGBT people, and plenty of Christians who support LGBT equality.
Here are a few well-known Christians who support LGBT rights just as an example:
US Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong (author of numerous books about Christianity)
Rev. Martin Luther King's widow, Coretta Scott King, was a vocal supporter of LGBT rights.
In Canada, the largest Protestant denomination (the United Church of Canada) not only supports LGBT rights but offers same-sex marriage ceremonies performed in churches just like heterosexual weddings.
<quoted text>
In Ohio (where I am right now) the Cleveland Clinic chain is really popular for healthcare services -- lots of hospitals, etc.-- and is considered to be one of the top 4 medical providers in the USA. It was founded as a secular medical provider. I'm sure there are plenty of others.
<quoted text>
I guess you've not heard about Oxford or Cambridge. They're the two oldest universities in the English world. They were both founded and running before any religious groups got around to acknowledging them or starting to set up a presence on their campuses.
<quoted text>
How is Obama being bigoted towards Christians? That's a claim that needs pretty clear proof if you want anyone to believe it.
Obama is Christian. He was just sworn in for his second term of office with his hand on a Christian Bible. After the swearing-in ceremony today he went with his family to a Christian church where they were celebrating in honour of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Did you post previously as "ASU grad"? My post was in response to someone posting under that name. And my post included quotes from ASU grad's post before each response.

Here's a link to my post complete with the quoted material I was responding to. http://www.topix.com/forum/news/gay/TNCDBBR1H...

Just because you have a homosexual daughter doesn't mean you have to start a crusade for homosexuality. It is your lack of spititual faith that opened the door for evil during your wife's gestation period.

I love it. Religions are fighting gays and not each other.
The claim that the government isn't supposed to be secular is the standard refrain of groups like the Taliban.

You're no different than they are.

If that's what you want please move to a country that is run by a theocracy. There are plenty of middle eastern countries that fit that criterion.

Let me be sure I understand this correctly. You're saying that those of us who are fighting for legal recognition of same-sex couples' relationships, for the same legal protections that are currently in place for children raised in heterosexual families to be extended to cover children raised by LGBT parents, are anti-family.

How is that?

Why should couples who are committed to each other in loving relationships, who have financially combined their lives, not families just because they happen to be of the same gender? Why are same-sex couples who are raising kids not families, and why do their children not deserve the same legal protections?

I'm asking as a gay person who is in a long term monogamous relationship with my same-sex partner. We've been together for 25 years now. We have two kids who we are raising. Why do we not count as a family?

Same-sex couples, and LGBT families with kids, are not a new thing. We've always been around regardless whether the mainstream society knew we were here or not.

And please provide any shred of proof that any heterosexual couple or family has lost anything as a result of legal same-sex marriage. If legal same-sex marriage somehow damages heterosexual marriage there is surely some proof of that.

It should be easy for you to get your proof since there are places like Canada where same-sex marriage has been legal for years.(Good luck with that!)

Your arguments are empty and without any merit.
