Lowell could learn some things from you. Correction: there is no evidence that "that sexual orientation is determined before birth".
And there is no evidence that's its not

Allowing same marriage creates all kinds of problems from churches being forced against their beliefs to perform and recognize these "marriages" to teaching children that there is no difference in what marriages are. Already children are being forced to learn about homosexuality and that it is a viable option for them. If same same sex marriages are recognized then those who speak against it will be considered bigots and promoting hate speech. Just look what has happened in Canada.
First off name one case where a church has been sued to force them to marry... That's as mythical as your jesass!!! Secondly name one private religous school forced to recognize and teach homosexual equallity... Oh ya there aren't any!!!

There are already cases where churches have been sued by gay couples for not marrying them. There was a baker who was threathened with a lawsuit if he did make a gay wedding cake. He closed shop instead. Don't think that if this passes more and more people who don't agree with homosexuality will be sued or forced to close doors. Children in grade schools are being forced to listen to the homosexual propaganda against the wishes of the parents. Time to get your head out the sand.
Send your dumbazz children to private school you dumbazz Talibangelical... Don't forget your turbin looooser

Then why are there no recordings other than the Buybull about Jesus coming back from the dead? The first recordings were made at least 30 years after the fact. There are no other recordings. The people that wrote the gospels were NOT eye witnesses.
Look. The story says Jesus died and came back. Everyone agrees that is the story. Not everyone agrees that it really happened.
Your use of the spelling "Buybull" indicates you are not interested in a serious discussion or a respectful one. Conversation over.

Of course. Take your righteous indignation and wear it as a badge of courage. You couldn't argue with the substance of my post so you find some other reason to escape from being forced to look at your lies. It's the fundie way.

There are no ex-homosexuals. There are gay people who go back into the closet. They're still gay.
If I had sex with a woman every day for the rest of my life, I'd still be gay. I'd just be faking. That's what "ex-gays" are doing.
If being gay was a choice, I would not have chosen it. It's that simple.
Also, every straight person knows this, because they know they did not choose their own sexuality. Everyone is born how they are born. That's that. Educate yourself.
Just what you are stating is gay. You are one, not all, so don't speak for them.

You know, i understand your anger towards many people of faith because of the way they act. I understand the anger. But I'm not one of them. I'm here to try to reach them as much as anyone else, to help the see the truth, even though they don't want too. That being said, do you think it is wise to mock the beliefs of the people who are supporting you? Do gay people need to alienate more people then already do so? If you want to discuss religion with me, please use the proper spelling of "Bible". If you just don't care, I can go someplace else to debate.
All I'm asking for is the respect you want from me.
so do you believe in full equallity in marriage, employment education and all societal aspects of life

You are free to have whatever religious beliefs you choose. You are not free to say they are indisputable "truth" recorded by eye witnesses, because it simply isn't true. Truth can be verified. There is no legitimate verification outside of the "bible" for jesus, or moses, or abraham for that matter. NONE. Using the bible as proof that the stories in the bible are true is a logical fallacy.
I'm not discussing religion. I'm discussing VERIFIABLE evidence. Believing something on faith is fine, but DO NOT even try to claim it is the "truth" just because you chose to believe it.
1st, I have never claimed "indisputable 'truth'". In fact, in just another post I freely admit it requires faith.

And here is a good research paper showing extra Biblical references to Jesus Christ http://sguthrie.net/resurrection.htm#Evidence...

You've mistaken me for someone who feels necessary to justify my faith. I don't. If you don't want to believe, fine. But I've ran across evangelical atheist before, and have learned they are usually only more interested in mocking than serious discussion. I've shown them evidence after evidence, and then they will bait and switch. It is a pointless effort. One I'll chose not to engage in. If you are wanting to claim that as me being unable to response, fine. You're wrong, but It's OK. I don't have to justify my faith to you. I hope you find happiness, and have a wonderful life. Truly.

I would never deny it. And I think the anger Jane towards me is just a representation of her run ins with people who would use the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a means to repress other people. She doesn't know me, there is no real way she could hate "me".

Perhaps you need to read your own links, sweetie.
1. The church wasn't forced to do anything and no suits were filed.
2. Not about a church
3. Not about lawsuits.
Better luck next time, bucko. Maybe you can get your fellow church members to believe the lies, but us folk in the real world know you have nothing.... and the record backs us up. There is no lawsuit forcing any church to marry anyone.
Here is some more things to think about:
