<quoted text>Very true about the Bible, but radical homosexual have no 'right' to disenfranchise others on the legal definition of marriage.
Who exactly is being "disenfranchised"

I'm more concerned with the "Biblical" definition of marriage than I am the legal one.

Sorry I have no desire to find out about you by reading your posts, so maybe you can give me a synopsis?
Are you a born again Christian or gay?

Prov. 6:16 says, "there are 6 things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him" and the 19th verse says one of these is, "...a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers."
So that includes a person professing to be a Christian who adds to the Bible where it's says nothing concerning their opinion, that the person demands of others to believe that's God's position on the matter even though, God made no actual statement about it?
We know the Bible makes some weak negative statements about same sex behavior without real clarity.
But the Bible says not a thing of being in favour of same sex sexual relationship behaviour. So all those Christians that claim God loves same sex sexual behavior and all those Christians claiming God loves same sex marriages, since the Bible states no such thing, as you said they'll be condemned by the following, was that your point? "...a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers."

You are a Bible bully. The men of Sodom were bullies also. That makes you just the same.

It actually does. Keep studying, eventually you may find the passages.

If we could just see same-sex orientation as a severe identity crisis and homosexual sin as one consequence of yielding to the sinful nature we all are acquainted with! The wages of any sin is death-spiritually and physically. The failure of fathers to affirm their children as valued young men and women is by some accounts a cause of much same-sex orientation. A father's affirmation is by those accounts the foundation for a stable personality-the absence of such affirmation results in severe attempts at compensation and affirmation from others that results in abnormal behavior. Same sex orientation, in my studied opinion, should not be assumed genetic, irreversible or harmless.

Christianity does not criticize orientation. It's the actions we choose to engage in or not.

It is all homosexual behavior that the Bible repeatedly condemns, not orientation.

Are you suggesting that those who choose to engage in the unspeakable acts that alone define and identify homosexuals were unable to choose?

No it isn't. It is a matter of our will, just like rape, murder, theft and pedophilia. No matter how people try to justify their choices, they make them and God holds THEM responsible.
His laws are VERY clear.

Great. Clearly, something convinced you. What was that? More to the point, why should anybody else accept it as true?

SIN is an ACT committed by the individual.

We should be doing HIS WILL (God's will).

Everything we do for beauty, admiring it, duplicating it, speaking of it, all set us apart from the rest of natural creation, and testify to the fact that we are made in God’s image, which means there is a God, for how do we explain the explosion of beauty in creation without God?
