When Were We Wrong?

When Were We Wrong?

There are 8 comments on the www.freerepublic.com story from Mar 27, 2013, titled When Were We Wrong?. In it, www.freerepublic.com reports that:

This morning in Washington, the Supreme Court will begin its deliberation of gay marriage.

In some three months time, this august body will tell us what the Constitution does or does not say about a supposed right of homosexual people to marry one another.

In one regard, it will be a momentous decision.

In another, it will be completely meaningless.

It all depends on your definition of truth. And about what America’s current fascination with gay marriage says about its ancestors and roots ...

from freerepublic:

"Christianity, Islam and Judaism are a sham, the native cultures of Africa, Asia and America were all oppressive and homophobic, and the great men and great minds of yesterday were socially retarded and inferior to us.

"We are the most enlightened and advanced people of all time.

"If gay marriage is right.

"But if it is wrong, if cultures and millennia past had wisdom and insight, then it is we who are benighted, we who have arrogantly abandoned the ways of truth and right.

"If Moses and Mohammed were prophets, if Jesus was divine, if Martin Luther and John Wesley and John Paul II were inspired, if Albert Schweitzer, Marcus Whitman, Mother Theresa and Billy Graham were servants of God, then we are full of crap.

"And gay marriage is not liberation, it is licentiousness. Not the new morality, but the old immorality."

Men and women are entitled to be perverts if they so desire.
But they should not be allowed to corrupt children.
If God had wanted homosexuals to have children He would have made them capable of doing so.
Children must be kept away from perverts and must be taught to repudiate un-natural sex.

Politicians who fail to see this simple truth are vile traitors of humanity.

You do realize we are talking about MARRIAGE here?

Not the fall of civilization. We are talking about a relitively small group of law-abiding productive citizens who choose to fall in love, make commitments, marry, and form families.

And somehow this tramslated to "bad"?

Makes no sense.

This also sums up the stance of Islam against homosexuality.
I am finding more folks are approaching me concerned about "Dyke
forces" within their community and workplace producing a toxic enviroment within which to live and work.
I naturally educate these folks about the advantages of Islam.

MARRIAGE as expounded by Christ is the cornerstone of civilization, which is why this country is currently in decline.

Marriage, as expounded by the Christian Church for 1500 years, was as an optional blessing of a required to be blessed sexual relationship that had been successfully consummated. The cornerstone of civilization was left largely up to the government, which offered an option that came with the possibility of divorce.

If your choice of place of worship and version of deity does not approve of same sex marriages, they have the right to not perform them, this however does not give them veto power over places of worship and versions of deities that don't share in your choice's problems and are more than happy to give their blessing.

As long as they leave children out of the equation I have no problem with it.

For 1500 years, governments have come and gone, yet the church remains.
