I donít care if same sex marriage was embraced by other cultures in history or not

I donít care if slavery was embraced by other cultures in history

I donít care of women were regarded as second class citizens in history

I donít care if protestants were burned at the stake for their religion in history

That was then, this is now.. welcome to... today

Just because something was true before, does not mean it should be today.

Truth doesn't change. It will always resurrect when denied. History tells us that happens quickly regarding marriage.

To whom it may concern,

The one who said that this is not a Bible Study forum, for your information, God is with us everyday in everything that we do and say. I am addressing the topic of homosexuality and referring Scripture because most of the forum so far, may not know where certain Scriptures are that I am quoting and this verse has to do with why we should look at Scripture as a Christian because it says "All Scripture is given by the inspiration of God" and then I continue with the rest of the verse. Just because you have no interest in God or anything about what he has says or created does not give you a right to tell me or others what they can say or do, so you move on. I have dusted my feet off on those who are not interested. As I have said before, we will continue on because my husband and I know that there is someone out there that is crying, guilty and needs someone to talk to, despressed and might be thinking of committing suicide and for whoever they are, my husband and I will have a listening ear, for this has happened to us many times in our walk with God and we have been there to help them on the path to show them about Salvation and then God teaches them through His Word and He only gets the Glory for what He has done. And by the way, this forum is about prop. 8 and I have not heard to much about prop. 8 on this forum for it is mostly about homosexuals.

1. I made no such assertion. I simply and accurately pointed out the duplicity of the APA.
2. As noted many times before, simple common sense says who engages in a harmful behavior does not change it's consequences.
3. I made no such assertion. That is why you lied about quoting me.
The one showing their cards is you.
Isn't it funny how everyone seems to misunderstand what you say? Maybe you actually say the things we say, but then you like to backpedal. Yeah... That's it...

To whom it may concern whoever you are,

Someone has made the comment about Christians or Fundamentalists and making a joke about it. For your information, there is no such thing of being a Christian or a Fundamentalist or a Conservative as far as being a Christian. Either you are a Christian or you are not a Christian, for there is no in-between either. The word Christian means that you are a follower of Christ and you Obey His Commandments and follow him daily. You just cannot live the way you may want to live. The laws are written in your hearts to do what God would have you do and it also says "Shall we sin that Grace may abound? God Forbid!! We as Christians cannot sin as sin is defined in Scripture or if your heart is telling you that you must not do something that will go against our Creator. There are more things that people do today that were not availabe at the time that the Scripture was written, such as watching movies that have very bad content in them, so that is when we rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us. For God through His Son Jesus (Yeshua) wants Christians to live a Holy Life, for the Temple of God lives within us.

The topic here is NOT HOMOSEXUALITY, it's same-sex marriage. If you are this confused as to the topic, imagine how confused you are interpreting the bible. Also, if you noticed, there has been thousands of posts here, have you caught up on them? Do you think that you're the first person to bring up scriptures?

To whom is saying that we are writing fake posts, then would you please prove what you are saying. We personally do not call people names, we not not sware or use profanity,we do not try to belittle someone either, and we are not the Holier than Thou either (for we are saved by Grace only), for we are only introducing Scripture to those out there that have not taken the time to Study God's Word and the subject on this forum is Prop. 8 being overturned and also people discussing their feelings about homosexuality and so we are addressing that subject. Whoever you are that wrote that post and you know who you are and so do we, please be more considerate of others when you are writing your notes. Is this the way you talk and treat your family?

I really doubt your time is best served saving a poster here from killing themselves. There seems to be no one here interested in your Westboro type of preaching. As a Christian, I get depressed and sad reading your hatred for others and your judgements and bragging about supporting a hate group.

That's simple. Can you name one culture that has SS couples equated with marriage from start to finish? Just one. In ALL of human history.

Marriage is present in everyone from start to finish..

So you support slavery
You support the repression of women as second class citizens
You are a racist bigot?
You support burning protestants at the stake
All of those where truths
Truth doesnít change... are you volunteering to be burned first?

Yes, we know. Truth is, gays marry now. Same institution as straight people. Not a damn thing you say alters that truth.

Flowery, but pointless. This statement has no meaning whatsoever. You go peddle your imaginary "resurrections" to the sheeple. No one here is interested.

Yes, it sure does. Look how quickly, given human history we've added 16 countries and 13 U.S. states to marriage equality.

Oh, and history also shows that the make up and relationship of the participants of marriage is always changing and adapting to meet the demands of the times. Sorry this truth is so difficult for you to accept.

I have another question, if Truth doesnít change, then why did your all powerful all-knowing god have to change his covenant with man?

If the old testament was truth, and truth doesnít change, why did he change it?

It appears your little god disagrees with you

Wow. Talk about run on sentences.

No one is out there crying that is going to reach out to you. And no one out there that is homosexual is feeling guilty, because they have nothing to be guilty about. And the suicides that you talk about are the result of people like you and your fake help. That's why the work you are trying to do has been outlawed in California and New Jersey with more states following quickly.

No one will be contacting you for your help, or your husband of 55 year's help. Ever.

When you name one culture where women were treated equally from start to finish. Just one.

Historical context. The argument of fools!!!!

Why don't you just cut and post this from now on: "But it's not been done before so therefore that magically translates to, it shouldn't be done now....despite the fact that I and no other bigot like me can establish a reason to deny it."
