There may be a time and situation to turn the other cheek, but it is not good to do in all situations.
To claim this is how one should act in all situations is reckless.
I know of no Christians who devoutly practice this, yet it is one of Jesus' most famous lines.
Christians often tell us about how homosexuality is an abomination, yet Jesus never said this, nor did he ever say anything about homosexuality as far as we know by the bible.

Maybe you should turn the other cheek more often, as it does seem you are not good at ever doing it. It is as if you completely ignore the advice of your god.
It amazes me how those who claim to believe in this god refuse to comply with his wishes.

I am for moderation.

Your observation is correct Mike, I should turn the other cheek more often, it does seem that I am not good,"at ever doing that", but, be that as it may, I will continue, to attempt that thing, but as they say, we all have our cross to bear, anger is mine.

Well, I did not say all who vote against gay marriage is a hater of homosexuals, but I am sure many of them are.
I do not dispute most of your claims here, but it does seem pretty clear, the religious right is against gay marriage and they put themselves in that catigory.
Sadly, even many on the religious left also vote against gay marriage due to their religious beliefs.

The clear trend is, the religious often vote against gay marriage due to their Christian religious beliefs.

This is a clear cause and effect situtation, so why keep acting as if they are not related?

You are for gay marriage, correct? If so, then why do you think so many of your religion think you are on the wrong side of this issue in a religious sense or otherwise?

So the Pope is resigning. I wonder why? Do I believe it is for the reason he claims? No. I have little trust in the words of this person.

And really, if he is the true prophet of a god, does it make sense the god does not help his health? There has not been a Pope to resign in about a thousand years.

Glad to hear you will make an attempt to follow the words of your god for a change.
I only say this to illustrate the point that it is as if those who believe, really do not believe that much, or so it appears.
Now if you could only address all those points I made?

The fact that many Christian homosexuals hate themselves for being homosexual is a big problem.
Their religion has convinced them that they are evil. This is absolutely insane. Further evidence the bible is not of gods or no god may even exist.

Often these people try to marry with the opposing sex and this usually leads to a seriously dysfunctional family situation.
Often the spouse feels they should not divorce them due to the commands of the bible, so they live in this dysfunctional situation and live their lives unhappy as a result through no fault of their own.

Many homosexual kids who are told they are evil for being so often commit suicide. This is a serious problem I feel I should not turn the other cheek towards. I am not a homosexual, but I have empathy towards their situation and hope to help fix the situation. One way I feel I can do this is to point out the god they look to is a myth, thus not to be taken as absolute truth, thus they are not evil.

Now can you understand why I oppose religion?

The laughable part is shit is already hitting the fan and you're to stupid to realize it and to make matters more laughable, it's your party that's tossing the shit and you're going right along with them.
The Commucrats are an elitist party and I'm sure you don't classify as an elite so when things do collapse, we'll see just how equal your party believes "you" are. Again, don't ask to share my bunker, the answer is no! Maybe the Commucrats will provide you with a community bunker.
