I believe 100% in marrying and forming strong families.....it is only through how God intended man and woman.
God did not give anyone the desire to be attracted to the same gender. If His Word is against it so is He.
He is not cruel He is Sovereign and most Holy. No one says you have to follow Him....you will wish you did though.
Seems kinda hypocritical of you atheist who dispute His being and then when something is posted about sin, you are the first to blame Him.........
So how is it with you? Do you believe in Him and just angry that He will not allow sin into heaven?
Do you know the difference between opinion and fact? Exactly how can you prove that the Buybull is "the word of God?" YOU CAN'T, honey. So grow up and face reality. Until you can prove there is a heaven or hell, you should keep your opinions to yourself and with other people in your church. Trying to force adults to believe your mythology , just because you 'think' it's true, makes you appear incredibly simple-minded.

God is merciful
God is Sovereign
God has always been
God always will be God

You not believing in Him, proves you lack of intelligence.

Laci, people married for various reasons, such as legal, social, emotional, economical, spiritual and religious, love and affection were not necessary in that primitive culture and there was no formal ceremony.
You, as the person you are today, would never wish to be a part of that culture where you were promised to another by your parents when you were thirteen.

Laci, just because another person does not believe as you doesn't mean they are using drugs.
Geez.
If your wish your right to believe as you wish to always BE a right, then, recognize that same right of other people.
In helping to protect the freedom of religion, protecting another person's right ensures your own.

Even if I believe all those same things, they are not facts.

They are beliefs.

one man + one woman = marrisage
I've been asking this question for over four years now. If marriage was always one man one woman why did you folks need to change laws and pass State Constitutional Amendments to make it one man one woman? Could it be that you actually believe that "States Rights" trumps what is in the U.S. Constitution?

Or could it be that you all got your 15 minutes of fame and glory and now that it's fading you decide to act like a child who's snow cone fell on the ground?

People like YOU people created DOMA. And now you're mad because you realize that your law is one giant clusterfuck.

As a Christian I know that Jesus paid the ultimate price as payment for the sins of mankind, past present and future.

Unfortunately Saul of Tarsus came along (as Jesus predicted before he died) and folks like you decided to worship him instead of God and His forgiveness.

In my life, whenever someone has knocked at my door and asked permission to spread "the good news" I've always thanked them for their concern but reminded them that my faith relationship to God doesn't depend on them or their preaching.

"Christian" churches and religions have been fighting each other since Jesus died over what a "real Christian is", the "proper way" to be baptized and a whole host of other issues.

But I'm glad you know what the word of God really is. Just like Jim Jones, Fred Phelps, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Ted Haggard, Jim Baker and David Koresh did.

Frankly I'm surprised the College of Cardinals didn't elect you Pope!

I'm 55 now. From the age of 4 I have had to deal with people like you deciding what the Bible says and what God's law is.

Funny thing is, what often happens when I ask questions about certain Bible verses, I get a bunch of convoluted rationalizations that ignore large portions of the Bible.

For example, when I asked my Sunday school teacher why Protestants don't keep the Sabbath day holy as God said to in the 10 Commandments, I get some long crazy story about how we worship the Resurrection and how Jesus tore the veil.

So maybe you can explain to me how your belief in the writings of Saul of Tarsus aren't putting someone else in front of your worship and devotion to God.(Thou shalt have no other gods before me).

Me elected as Pope? No that would never work....I don't believe in praying to Mary or purgatory. Thanks for the vote of confidence though........ ;)

Until you prove any one of the above facts, they remain assertions. Nothing more.

My guess is you couldn't be elected Beauty Queen of the local Day care center......and you truly are ignorant of who you think Catholics pray to.......by the way, without Mary......your precious Jesus wouldn't have been born!!!

Oh and according to some, Purgatory is what you live right now!!!
