It's the same thing the JW's do with blood transfusions, they pick and choose which old testament verse to follow. Most of the Old testament is supposed to be lessons and why we needed a Savior, it's not to be followed literally.

Well they are not going to succeed starting to refuse marriage licenses for that reason now.
As far as I remember, no one said procreation is a requirement for marriage. That's your schtick. Your straw man.

Wow, you just judged almost all humans. I guess that is all you can do when you have no argument.

However your inability to answer disqualified you from trying to avoid the question.

It still stands.

<quoted text>This is the truth and gays do not want to deal with the fact that there is no state interest in being involved in same sex marriages.
The state interest in normal marriages is principally a divorce-child equity thing. That is so there is a legal standard for divorce. The argument that gays use has to do with adoption, but in gay adoption there is only one parent. The whole idea of two mommies and two daddies is a lie, it has always been one parent adoption and an adult house guest.
I can't believe I'm reading such bigoted BS! What the fk you know 'what gays want' and the interests of the state? Fking self-righteous troll, you're dehumanizing people and you have the audacity to call yourself a christian! More like Christardo! POS

<quoted text>I don't think an old debate in the 1820's about believing in God vs, not believing has ANYTHING to do with my post. If you can't answer and debate here, why do you respond?
What is it that you want from us? One of your questions previously was that debates for the most part don't work. I have to tell you that you do not know what you are talking about. Your questions that I did try and answer all of them 2 nights ago, I was on there to long and they did not go through and it took me time to look up the Scriptures and there are lots of Scriptures to quote on those subjects, but my husband who is my covering in Christ told me that after reading comments from the forum that have responded to us, he thinks that we are being joked at and not taking seriously and really to be honest with you, I feel that your approach sounds to us like you may just want to argue and we will NOT argue about Scripture. If you do read the Bible, I would suggest to look at a Scripture that I have been using most of my journey in Christ and that is in Second Timothy chapter 2 verse 15 and I quote: "Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth." You have the Truth in Scripture and it is up to you to find it. You did not answer my question anyway. Why do you need us anyway? The Holy Spirit is the one that teaches you. We only want to respond to people that we believe really are serious about wanting to know about our experiences in the Body of Christ and how we came to our conclusions on how we believe. We really want to help people that are hurting, crying, feeling like there life is not worth anything. My husband and I have a Ministry to help people to get on track and have a full Life in Christ. We do feel that in your comments that there something there that makes us think that you are not serious. I do not mean to sound cruel, for you may be a very serious for we do not know you, but we do not know why you are choosing our post, for there are many that have talked about their Faith in Christ. Your type of comments in so many words "Do you feel that you are free from sin" not sure exactly what you said because you have said alot already, but it sounds like you have really not read what we are saying because we actually have addressed many of the questions that you are asking in alot of the posts that we have written on. We do not really know what you believe or not believe in your comments. We as Christians are in different places in our journey with Christ and we are still learning.

It's the reason marriage exists in the first place. Nice try though.
You say procreation is the reason marriage exists, Big D will deceitfully reply "Procreation is not a requirement for marriage." As if you said it was. It's his schtick. He's dishonest.

Here is the post you were responding to typing about Christian vs atheist debate: "How is joining an anti-gay hate group supposed to show the Christian love and tolerance for gay people? Do you want to draw the gay community closer or further away from God?"

Were you confused as to what post you were responding to?

when they stop bringing it up as a reason to not allow same sex marriage, I will stop reminding them. I donít give a crap what you want.
