1. Why is there then not one similar example of a proportionate presence of gay 'marriage' in even ONE culture from start to finish of the culture's existence like marriage has?
I refer to this as the "why must you change the definition of voting?"
If you are going to say that woman voting is the same as men voting, they why is there then not one similar example of a proportionate presence of women voting in even ONE culture from start to finish of the culture's existence like men voting has?

I do believe you are wrong on this matter. Most of the people I know are God fearing Christians. They're a bit wide of the mark on being perfect, but I'm not aware of any that claim they are. Some are genuine and some are hypocrites. I'd be willing to agree that some do actually hate Christianity, but they do have their own view of God and do worship and love God. They just don't share your view of God. I also know a few atheists and agnostics. None of them hate God or His Word.

<quoted text>Actually, procreation is the state interest that gets the state involved in marriages.
It is "an" interest, not "the only" interest.

Feel free to try again. You can come back with your original argument once the State begins denying marriage to individuals that choose not to procreate, or are incapable of procreating, and when the state voids the marriages of those that don't succeed in procreating.

Thanks for stopping by with such a stupid post.

Bless You! You have captured the very essence of the church of the Sepulchre and the Scriptures. You and We Who Know do not let the shadows overtake you. Bless You. The true believer knows that all others who refrain from complete commitment and who do not bow down to the Lord are indeed the offal in the slaughterhouse of life and they are stench and vile and ghastly and deserving not at all of compassion or mercy for they are cursed because they are not as we are and we are as God has made us, which then means that they who are not as we are as they are made that way by Satan. We cannot tolerate this, He has said unto us; Go Forth and Strike Down All Such Sinners that Ye Shall Know Them. Do unto others before they do unto you, and cleanse the path for the righteous. BLESS YOU.
Hey look here! Suzanne thinks she can fool people into believing she's two different people!!!

Hey Suzanne, you do realize this paints you as even more pathetic than we had thought. It's also deceitful, which goes against the rules of your buybull.

I am very disturbed by your comments. We are not worried at all that 99% of the people on this forum are not interested in what we have to say, we do know that most of the world hate God and His Word, but there are a few out there that may need help and if just one person needs guidance, it will be worth it all. If you are a Christian, why don't you try and help those out there that are lost and not write us back, for we are getting nowhere fast. I am not judging you that you will not be saved in the end, for God is the final Judge, but I have lots of Christian friends and we are one in Christ. Most of your questions that you are asking us, you should know already unless you are trying to argue. I did not think we were having a debate, for Christians really should not be debating (of which my Christians friends do not dabate for we are on the same page), unless one feels that the other is going to a organization that is not Christian and we have been there and debated with other cults. If people on this forum do not ahere to Scriptures, they are not hurting me, for they are hurting our Creator, so they really are turned off with God. Remember the Apostles when they went door to door, they were to dust their feet off and move on if the people did not accept Christ. You do not know us at all and you have no idea how God has worked in our lives to help others and God Gets The Glory. I do not feel as though we can discuss things because they will turn into arguements because for some reason, we are not on the same page. I do not know what it is, but my husband said last evening, he felt as though most of you want to argue and not listen to God's Word. I am in contact with alot of Christians and really do not feel like they are arguing with us, but with you, we still do not know where you stand with Christ. For if you remove any Scripture and deviate from any Scripture, then we know for sure that we are not one in Christ.
I just asked you simple questions on the stuff you post. I don't think telling people they are going to hell is winning recruits. As a Christian I don't do that. I don't send my money to groups that do that and spend money protecting our kids from homosexuals. We can't discuss things because you play God.

Cute, but my personal favorites are the 8 "I really rather you didnt's" from the Church of FSM.

THE EIGHT I'D REALLY RATHER YOU DIDN'TS

1. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Act Like A Sanctimonious Holier-Than-Thou Ass When Describing My Noodly Goodness. If Some People Don't Believe In Me, That's Okay. Really, I'm Not That Vain. Besides, This Isn't About Them So Don't Change The Subject.

2. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Use My Existence As A Means To Oppress, Subjugate, Punish, Eviscerate, And/Or, You Know, Be Mean To Others. I Don't Require Sacrifices, And Purity Is For Drinking Water, Not People.

3. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Judge People For The Way They Look, Or How They Dress, Or The Way They Talk, Or, Well, Just Play Nice, Okay? Oh, And Get This Through You Thick Heads: Woman=Person, Man=Person. Samey-Samey. One is Not Better Than The Other, Unless We're Talking About Fashion And I'm Sorry, But I Gave That To Women And Some Guys Who Know The Difference Between Teal And Fuchsia.

4. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Indulge In Conduct That Offends Yourself, Or Your Willing, Consenting Partner Of Legal Age AND Mental Maturity. As For Anyone Who Might Object, I Think The Expression Is Go F*** Yourself, Unless They Find That Offensive In Which Case They Can Turn Off The TV For Once And Go For A Walk For A Change.

5. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Challenge The Bigoted, Misogynist, Hateful Ideas Of Others On An Empty Stomach. Eat, Then Go After The B*******.

6. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Build multi million-Dollar Churches/Temples/Mosques/ Shrines To My Noodly Goodness When The Money Could Be Better Spent (Take Your Pick): A. Ending Poverty B. Curing Diseases C. Living In Peace, Loving With Passion, And Lowering The Cost Of Cable. I Might Be A Complex Carbohydrate Omniscient Being, But I Enjoy The Simple Things In Life. I Ought To Know. I AM The Creator.

7. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Go around Telling People I Talk To you. You're Not That Interesting. Get Over Yourself. And I Told You To Love Your Fellow Man, Can't You Take A Hint?

8. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You If You Are Into, Um, Stuff That Uses Alot Of Leather/Lubrication/Las Vegas. If The Other Person Is Into It However (Pursuant To #4), Then Have At It, Take Pictures, And For The Love Of Mike, Wear A CONDOM! Honestly It's A Piece Of Rubber, If I Didn't Want It To Feel Good When You Did It I Would Have Added Spikes, Or Something.

Thank you for your response. I do not agree because there is no inbetween, you are either for Christ or against Christ. You either believe in His Word or you do not, for those who do not ahere to His teachings must not like him very much because they have no fear of what God will do to them in the end of the world. They have that chance to receive until their death, but I personally would not wait because they do not know when your end will come.

I agree 100% with Randy and you do not know him at all and you are making a arguement that is not correct at all. He is trying his best to protect children and I am to. I have written to supervisors, county clerks & Jerry Brown who by the way, his father was very good friends of my father, and Jerry Brown is nothing like Pat Brown was when he was Governor way back when. We are here to help children and I really think you had better Study more of the Scripures because Jesus said in Matthew Chapter 18 verse 6 and I quote: "But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drownded in the depth of the sea." My husband and I watched a video on the internet a few weeks back on this subject of being taught that homosexuality is normal and it made us sick. They showed very small children on the classroom floor listening to their teacher read a book on mommies and mommies or daddys or daddys and this was normal. What ever happened to reading, writing or arithmetic? This is going to hurt our children, for I know that children that are vunerable and have tendencies to go to the same sex will now feel that it is normal when if they had counselors, they would know that it is not normal and they could be changed. How shameful for you to want a gay teacher to teach your children. Thank God my children are raised up and have Christ in their lives, for if I had small children, they would be home schooled. I think it is time to say goodby, for you and I are arguing and I will not go there anymore with you. Have a good life and may God continue to work in your life. Please do not respond to us anymore, for we believe in God's Word and we do not agree with you on much of the subjects we are talking about and I have much to do in my life and I feel as though God is telling me that it is a waste of time to discuss with you any longer. Thank you.
Why don't you post smaller and stop making your posts about YOU. All your posts are about YOU. If you want to talk about YOU, do it at the hair Solon. This topic is not about YOU. How are you going to protect children from homosexuals? That would mean no TV, no outside exposure, no family reunions..No books...No church. No shopping...You already gave us that piece about Pat Brown, it makes no difference, it was different times. How is telling the truth to kids about homosexuals offending Jesus? Didn't God make the homosexual? YOU are the one offending God. What? How shameful to want a gay teacher? I wanted a good teacher period. It was a High School AP class, he is one of the best teachers in the school district. Elk Grove. He can dress like a gay clown everyday as far as I'm concerned, as long as he teaches the subject. He wasn't teaching kids about being gay, he was who he was. YOU are disgusting and a disgrace to be calling yourself a child of God. YOU make me sick. WHO gave you the right to judge me and a teacher like this? It's people like you that give Christians a bad name, you make me sick!

You are dead wrong, for we cannot discuss things because you think that you are right just like I think that we are right and believe me someone is wrong and we will have to wait until the end to see. God has told us to Obey his Commandments and your arguments do not make any sense to us, so we both have to move on to our own journey. We have taken the time to quote many Scripures, but you either do not believe them or ignore them or twist them around, we really do not know, but believe us, this really does not happen in our Studies because we DO NOT deviate from the Word. The Holy Spirit teaches them, we don't, and he shows them the way. This is what Apostle Paul was warning about to the Corinth Church, but he did say to follow him and he was given the revelation of Christ's teachings and we obey what he says. Have a happy and safe journey and May God teach you like we have to be taught daily.

This thread is not about YOU. I have quoted scriptures and you ignore them. I asked you if we can hate homosexuals because of Leviticus and you can't answer, I say get in a good Church, you need some outside help, you are way out of touch. Start loving people for who they are, Let God be God.
