You also think telling people on the Internet they are going to hell (even in response to being trolled) is terrorism and likened it to 9-11

Is the melodrama really necessary?

Did you think it was terrorism when you were a Mormon for years yet someone the moral outrage didn't kick in until you left the faith?

I really don't look to target you. But you actually know better and are smart enough not to engage in such nonsense. I really would like to see how different some people posted if there wasn't an audience to play to or a group they want to constantly reaffirm their commitment to by demonizing the other side

It was a pretty crazy test I will agree to that. It actually seems a bit cruel but I don't presume to be in a position to judge God let alone understand all His ways and Abraham went on to be one of the greatest men in the faith so God obviously knew what He was doing. If people disagree that is their right. But it is an insult to people who have been victims of actual terrorism CBS more than that is simply is disingenuous. It's the sand kind if rhetoric like closing people to Hitler IMO

That is shy people have problems with 'critics'. It is not someone shining questioning or challenging something about the faith. It is rather people intent on using propaganda, rhetoric, bigotry, stereotypes, and hate in pursuit of their only goal which is to attack the faith.

<quoted text> Supported by GLAD
http://www.thegavoice.com/news/national-news/...
A federal appeals court Friday affirmed a district judge’s order that a state prison violated the constitutional rights of a prisoner with severe gender disorder when it refused to provide sex reassignment surgery.
The lawsuit, Kosilek v. Spencer, was supported by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD), the ACLU, the Human Rights Campaign, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Center for Transgender Equality, and other LGBT organizations.
----------
They argue it as a human right.
Do you agree or disagree? Why?
I disagree that it's a disorder. I'm not transgendered so I don't know how he or she feels and I don't try to. I'm not a spokesperson for GLAD. Courts are there to render judgement on laws. I'm not a lawyer and I don't pretend to be. It is what it is.

By altering society you mean fixing the injustice, right?
What injustice. Do you believe because i have the right to marry a female and you as a female do not have the right to marry a female there is injustice? States regulate who can and who cannot marry.
Age renders reproductive systems obsolete. Would you advocate killing people when they can no longer reproduce? What purpose do they serve?
Not every hetero marriage produces children but every child has male female parents. SSM is state created. Male female pattern is still there in marriage which do not produce children and is legal. Doubtful anybody is going to want to regulate marriage to only those who can have children.

Altering society so as to force SSM on people who do not want it. You Insist on forcing your views. There is no civil right to SSM anymore than there is a civil right for an adult man to marry a 14 year old. Even if adult men marry 14 year old females in other countries.

Skin color and ethnicity is morally neutral while homosexual conduct is both morally and legally questionable. It does not serve the state any benefit to recognize SSM Since those unions never produce children 100% of the time. Are you getting frustrated?

Nobody is forcing anything on you or anybody else.

Other people are being given the rights you already have.

well in fairness, how is gay marriage any different in that regard that straight couples who don't have kids

Although to me this is the difference between a right and a privilege. Perhaps on a privilege the state can expect sons reciprocity. But nobody has to 'earn' a right

If people don't want to adopt or get insemonated or procreate that is up to them. They shouldn't have to do so in order to get married

People do however have to do things like pay taxes and obey the law obviously if they want to be part of society. But if people had to justify their marriage by proving its societal benefit, a lot of people wouldn't be able to marry. Including bad parents

The real target of gay marriage is children. It’s always been the goal to get the children. Once gay marriage is recognized by the States as being legal. It opens up the opportunity to adopt children. This is a social experiment being forced on society without reputable research beforehand.

Kids are already a fragile commodity as it is. Now we are going to experiment with them by throwing them into home where their own adopted parents are confused themselves. For hundreds of thousands of years children were raised in heterosexual homes.

Teen suicides is already a concern as being the 11th leading cause of death for 10 year olds and older. Watch this suicide rate go up even higher as the gays experiment with raising children on a massive scale.

Once we go down this road there will be no turning back. Children have been the target of the gays from the very beginning. Experimenting with children is a very bad idea. I’m sure it’s going to happen because some are hell bent on getting their hand on our kids.

Then are the courts going to come along and say we need to integrate heterosexual children into homosexual marriages? Forced integration as kids are dragged from their homes and placed into gay homes? You can pretty much bet the liberal judges will try it.
