The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

You can't tell by your words.
The reason you can't tell is that you are Biblically illiterate.

For that to be true, you would need to explain why, point by point.
The reason you don't know is because the answer is in the Bible.

Theologically it's known as blasphemy of the Holy Spirit; in the same essense of attributing works of God to the devil, conversely attributing works of the devil and the falsity and self-serving human agency to the working of God is also BLASPHEMY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. These people, in coming here and their ensuing conduct of driving people away from God by their filth and hostility are commiting the one sin that will not be forgiven. That's why I've been telling them that if I'm to burn in hell there is no doubt that there will be a pile of these people there buring to roast me over. I've warned them, they can tempt God all they want-they are accountable for their actions. They better grab their burn spray because their alibis aren't going to cut it with the Almighty.

<quoted text>Because "GrandPASmurf" doesn't follow YOUR version of "chriSTAINanity"?
Because in life, words and actions, "Grandpasmurf" behaves more like Jesus did than you do?
As a Christian, I pity you. The message of Jesus is one of compassion, not judgement and punishment. You pervert His message and dishonor His Sacrifice. No wonder I smell goats every time you post and sheep when ever I read what PapaSmurf writes on the subject.
You may believe that "Papa" likes my form of Christianity over yours simply because I'm a gay man. But you'd be mistaken.
PapaSmurk has always respected my religion because he sees I practice it's core values instead of simply "preaching a list of don'ts".
Come back when you know anything about the Bible.

I can. "Grandpasmurf952" You are a Biblically illiterate hypocrite. That's why you avoid discussing the Bible. Jesus warned you of the eternal fire.

I never meant to say 'religions' were being forced to marry same sex couples. My bad if it came off that way.
I did say religious ministers with the legal authority to marry people were being forced to marry same sex couples. In court houses to avoid problems, they usually had two clerks to marry individuals because in many instances the court person was a minister. So one person would marry opposite sex and one would marry same sex.
But in Saskatchewan I believe the court ordered ministers of the court to marry both where since 2005 a religious minister of a court had the option to refuse same sex marriage on grounds of religious belief.
Sorry for the confusion.
Here's what happened. When Canada passed gay marriage, special laws were also enacted to prevent Church's from being forced to perform gay marriages.
In Saskatchewan, "Marriage Commissioners" were refusing to perform the marriage rights to gay couples because of "personal religious beliefs". The Govt of Sask tried to pass a law that would permit these marriage commissioners to continue to refuse service to gay people. The Court of Appeal in Sask rejected the law, and rightly so. Marriage commissioners are govt employess providing govt services. ALL Canadians regardless of ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation are entitled to full and equal access to those services.
What the Court basically did, was remind everyone that Freedom of Religion also means Freedom FROM Religion.
In 2012, Prime Minister Harper publicly stated "that Canadians had already decided on the issue of gay marraige and as far as he was concerned, the matter is closed".

Liars and deceivers have no part in the kingdom of God-which means your phony christianity doesn't win you a slam-dunk victory in the salvation game.

Mocking, lying about, and twisting the Word of God doesn't make you a "shepherd". It makes you a foolish follower of a condemned fallen angel, Satan. But the Word of God warns about your kind:

Proverbs 23:9- Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
