Who Threatens Marriage More: Gays Who Value the Sacrament or Atheists Who Don't?

Mar 7, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

When I read the headline "Gay vicar from Kilburn to defy church leaders by marrying atheist partner," I was fairly certain that it was the atheism of the partner in question that was cause for concern among the church leaders.

The religitards are the serial adulters, multiply married and divorced with the highest divorce rate.

To no surprise, a religitard is trying to blame gays and atheists for it.

ALL gays ARE atheists. You can't be homosexual and follow, believe in and live your life in accordance with God's will.

You can still be religious and not follow the bible line by line or literally. Most religious people I know personally are not bible thumping but they do believe in a higher power.

I never mentioned anything about the Bible. Atheism means that one does not believe in God (a higher power). They believe in their own ego as separate from God. Atheists believe that we are all individuals and should be able to do whatever we want to do if it makes us happy as individuals.

Again, nothing to do with the Bible.

Speak for yourself. You don't represent all gay people by any means.

So you pray, but since you don't happen to be God, you aren't exactly qualified to tell us His answer to it. If you imagine that God's will is for you to go around mocking gay folk in His name, more power to you and good luck, you're going to need it.

And may I add that it is this increasing separation from God, promoted by liberals and homosexuals, that is causing the world to be in the state it is currently in. - quickly spiraling downward to it's demise.

It's not a separation from God dear, just your unfortunate image of Him, BIG difference. It's a rejection of fools like you, not God. In case you hadn't noticed, you aren't God and don't necessarily speak for Him.

This is demonstrably false. Many gay people are religious.

Spiraling downward by what metrics?

The world is better off than it has been through most of its history.

Marriage isn't a "sacrament" except to the religious. Fanatics. To the rest of us , it is a civil legal contract. You can be married without coming within 100 yards of any. Church, but not without coming into a secular government office. Marriage is only religious to those. Who choose to make it so.

Some gays think they are religious because they worship pagan gods like Baal and other demonic influences. Technically, they are correct, just as atheists in their staunch beliefs are religious. Gays and similar influences have destroyed a stable and compassionate America. "Marriage" is desired by very few gays and those wanting it use it for attention and abusing other's rights. Since the terroristic threatening from gays and their support of kidnapping bank robbers just because one was gay... America has turned into a pile of crap with no moral, nor ethical base.

Maybe if you would dedicate more time to your straight relationship(s) of any kind, you would have less time to be the "know it all" about any/everything gay, deluded and wrong as your opinion is. In other words, get a frucking life. Good God, take off that aluminum foil hat and join reality.

How is homosexual marriage affecting heterosexual marriage? It's NOT! Married couples could care less what's going on in marriages of other couples they don't know, unless they are family or close friends. People spend time worrying about their own family, going about their daily life and have better things to do than worry about what strangers are doing doing.

You obviously have too much free time daydreaming and an obssession with what strangers are doing in the bedroom.

Your craziness makes no sense. It's not a matter of what you deviants do in your bedrooms; it's a matter of what you do publicly, which is outrageous, insulting and abusive carried to some form of distortion only a deviant mind can fathom... darkness, depravity and degradation of the settled direction of humanity for thousands of years.

You must know and spend time in those public places for you to feel insulted. You own the problem feelimg insulted by what others do and nobody cares either. People have better things to do than worry about your meaningless emotional problems. Go do charity work, something worthwhile or get professional counseling than dwelling over what homosexuals or heterosexuals are doing.
