Also, I believe that only God can judge who has been 'hateful' and who has not been. I feel very reassured that God will approve of my stance on what I stood up for while I was on Earth.
If you are someone who believes in God, are you confident that your behavior/beliefs while here on Earth will be acceptable to Him? In other words, are you pretty sure that He won't be angry with you?
If you're sure that He won't be angry, then I guess you should go on living the life you're living dude.
Do you need someone to drive you to the nearest border crossing?

But where will you go?

Canada? Nope, they gay marry there too.
Mexico? Nope, gay marriage there too.
Europe? Nope, gay marriage in most of those countries too.
Australia? Better hurry because they're about to get gay marriage too.

I guess you'll have to go to one of the muslim countries in the middle east or africa where they still kill homosexuals. But they also tend to kill christians, so you might want to hide your crucifix.

Bon voyage!!!!!

I was thinking about buying my own south pacific island and building a house there. I guess it will be lonely for my family growing up there, but at least they won't be subjected to seeing and experiencing the moral decay of a once great society.

They can leave the island when their eighteen and as they leave I will tell them they are welcome to return if American culture disgusts them too much.

Moral decay such as our society turning a blind eye to any immoral behavior that comes along. People today are less and less confrontational and they don't want to expend the energy to stand up and tell society's evildoers to keep their immoral behavior(s) in the closet.

No kid should have to witness two grown men kissing on their street, or on TV, or in a movie, its just wrong and you'll never convince me that it isn't.

What did I tell you about your twisted paranoid fantasies of what's next? Mental. Health. Professional. Your problem only, not ours.

Yeah sweetie, your Christian presence has been so freaking Christlike that by reading your posts I'd swear that Jesus himself had popped in to freak out about the world changing around him and the gay folk being treated as they are, equal citizens in their own nation.

Good luck with your God, you may just need it.

We'll all be happy to see you go. Unfortunately just like every other bigot you're just full of crap and simply stay here and bitch & moan about how bad things are.

Just knowing how much it all bothers you makes it worth the wait for our equal rights. We'll celebrate every victory all that much more just to rub it in.

Why do you think that Jesus created the Church?

Perhaps Jesus started the Church so it would teach generation after generation how to live a good moral life and to live by good morals and values. He did this so people would know the things to avoid that could send them to Hell. Thus, the creation of the Church is part of God's plan for the salvation of mankind, not just for those living 2000 years ago but until the end of the world.

If Jesus believed in the notion that every man should be able to 'do his own thing' and live their life by their own set of codes/morality, then there wouldn't have been any reason to create the Church.

If the Church views homosexuality and gay marriage as wrong/sinful, and the Church was created by Jesus, then its most likely Jesus would take the same stance with the Church on this issue.

The people who should fear Judgement Day are those who ignore or refute the Church's stance on gay marriage.

Sorry pal, but you've been suckered into believing a fairytale of sky-god creatures. I have to give them credit, it was a great scam which has lasted much longer than I thought it ever would.

Think of it- no proof necessary, just "belief", but only if you follow these rules we made up and only if you give us money. Then after you die you get to go to a magical place where everyone lives forever and there is no disease or suffering.

Not suprising that the ignorant masses bought into it; they still believed the sun revolved around the earth, and that evil spirits were responsible for disease.

What IS suprising is the number of sheeple who still buy into it today in spite of the overwhelming scientific evidence that it's simply not possible. That's why they brainwash children with Santa Claus & the Easter Bunny before they are able use their rational brains to question anything.

But if it makes you happy, go for it. Just don't try to tell the rest of us how to live because we don't suffer from your delusion.

"Decay" implies that the situation was less decayed at some previous time, wouldn't it?

Native Americans think very differently about this. Christians have a long, dignified history of violence and indoctrinating everyone they come in contact with. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/charles-orgbon/...
