She feels like we do that if the homosexuals feel that they are normal, then they should prove they are by having children normally.
Do you say the same thing to a straight couple that can't have kids normally and adopt? Stop playing God and deciding who is normal or not? Move to Topeka, Kansas and join your team.

Sounds like you have a family history of mental illness, you really should seek treatment, you don't seem to be cured.

He is sounding like suzzane's atheist extreme. There are extreme's on every side. I really think Johah1 is the most fair when it comes to religion.

I did say that I would not personally write anyone back individually, but what I should have said because I have been saying all along that if anyone that I think that may be serious about what I am talking about, I will write them back, so I thought this was one of them, but now I feel like they may not be on the same path of which they said that in one the comments. You can call me any names that you want for everyone that tries their very best to put me down, so I put you on my prayer list (of which I have alot of names now) and you never know when you will have a crisis, like death of a family member, terroists attack, illness that is not curable, then you may, just may be interested to know if you are on the right path!!

Hey if others can use this forum as an advertisement board for their religion why not everyone?

I thought about Taoism, but thought FSM would be funnier.

The point,( which has been lost on just about everyone so far ) is that we are a secular nation, we protect your religious rights, no matter which religion it is, equal in the eyes of the law, but we make no law for the establishment of any religion, protecting the non-religious, and each religion from each other, again equal in the eyes of the law.

But that doesn't change the fact that it is a silly stupid alternative to natural sex our bodies are designed for. A physical oneness that only a man and woman can model. That my friend is what I am obsessed with. However my wife hits me when I obsess about that...
Straight and homosexual couples have been engaging in it for a long time, before written history. There is a “Truth” for you.

You prefer not to, ok, I would gladly assist in the arrest of anyone that tried to force you to.

You are master of your own person in this country.

You are not the master of anyone else. You can prefer not to, but you are not given the power to force your preferences on anyone else, just as others are not allowed to force you. The law stands against both those that would force you, and you who would force others.

Get some new material, you parrot. Nobody buys your notions.
Gay couples can have a loving, marital relationship; just like the millions of heterosexual married couples who base their relationships on love and have no intention of having children for whatever reason.
And you yammer on about the harmful effects of anal sex. How people want to have sex is their business. If it were as harmful as you say, every straight and gay person who has ever engaged in anal sex would be ill. And they aren't.
Your beliefs about why people should marry and how they should have sex are intrusive.
I will bring you back to your "boundaries exercise", in which you stand up, hold your arms out to your side, spin in a circle, and say to yourself "This is my personal space. I get to control what happens in my space. I should not seek to control anything outside of my space."
Whatever queen.

Irregardless, these truths haven't changed, and you still have NO answer for them.

SS couples are only ever a mutually sterile duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

That's not hate or homophobia, it's unchangeable truth.

The point is FSM is a religion like any other religion, you said it yourself. So you are a hypocrite.

Your sky fairy, a flying bowl of spaghetti no less, is real but everyone else's is ridiculous. You are exactly like the church lady, just with a different sky fairy.

Civil marriage is a contract and has nothing to do with god. Feel free to add a religious context to your own marriage if you wish, but in this country we have separation of church and state. Religion is not part of the civil act of marriage unless you make it part of your personal situation.
If that's your opinion, then in your ss "union" and it is strictly a contract, it includes no love, no religious beliefs, no moral guidances, no emotional ties, no procreation or child rearing just simple (in your case) homo sex. Hmmmmmm, gotta think that one over, Does that definition of marriage damage others with real marriages?? Yes! Don't get squirrely now, yes that is my personal point of view but I'd be willing to bet there are more of me than you.

I will grant you tha.t

At first as a child I was religious, and then as I grew up ( about the time I stopped believing in Santa ) I realized what religion actually was, and as I grew older, instead of being non-religious, I have over time become anti-religious.

I am a student of history, and religion is one of the 3 great plagues of mankind, perhaps the one that has done the most harm.
