"God created man and woman to produce offspring. How can two women have a child the way God intended? They can't pro create can they."

Going by that logic, as has been repeatedly pointed out to you and your fellow kat-licks, God apparently doesn't want older people, or people who cannot have kids. to get married, either.

It's highly offensive to say that marriage is only for procreation, and it's ridiculous that you push adoption as a cure for abortion, but would deny untold numbers of kids families, because you would deny same-sex couples the right to adopt.

You kat-licks are pretty screwed up.

Sigh...

Good evening "Knit."

As always, your inability to fully comprehend another person's post is painted in vivid "technicolor" on the Topix screen for all of us to view and groan at.
I did not refer to anyone as "kat-licks."
I was responding to another poster who did so in a rather sarcastic fashion.
I know sarcasm isn't as apparent online as it is in person but even you ought to have gotten that one "Knit."

I also know that this is my fault for having the foolish momentary thought that you'd be able to reply in something that resembled a "thoughtful" manner.
:(

Now, sorry to say, I do not view you as either a Christian, or a Catholic--your behavior on here proves that you're nothing other than a religious fundamentalist, with the barest of understandings of your own "religion."

All you're capable of doing is "braying" what you've been taught as though you actually believe it.

My apologies for disturbing your "slumber."

Correction: I called YOU a 'kat-lick'. You're a breed unto yourself.
Not being a Christian, I don't have to worry that "god" will punish me for calling you a Katlick. But I am free to wonder if he's not punishing YOU, for being a disgrace to your faith... by keeping you here, day after day, under a pile of abuse from "neighbors" you spend days on end not 'loving'.
You're a joke, knut. Your God laughs at you, and your presence here is Him giving you endless noogies.

They
Don't
Care.

The so-called 'pro-life'(who are in reality 'pro-control' and 'pro-fetus') aren't remotely interested in QUALITY of life...they're in it for quantity, and they don't care what the actual outcome of any given life is, as long as it's born.

Exactly. Anti-choice fanatics like Knutter, Sassy and company are all the same. They all want women FORCED to gestate those pregnancies and for more babies to be born. After that, they couldn't care less what happens to them.

Some same-sex marriages have church weddings, some don't--just like hetero marriages. All we are discussing is CIVIL marriage--what happens in churches is up to the sect and the couple.

There are christian sects that DO marry gay couples. Maybe they know something you don't.

Because it's written in the Bible that homosexuality is wrong?
Those passages were taken from the Old Testament, and it wasn't until the so-called "Letters of Paul" that they made their way into the New Testament. Jesus himself--according to the Gospels--never spoke of the "rightness," or "wrongness" of homosexuality.
His basic message was;
"Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you.
Love your neighbor as you'd love yourself.
Those are grumpy's messages!
Do unto others etc. is for your favorite masochist.
Love your neighbor etc. is for your neighbor who enjoys masturbating.

I read the article, but I'm not sure I fully got its meaning--he was excommunicated because of his position regarding the ordination of women rather than his position on gay marriage?
I think we're at something of a crossroads here my friend.
Gay people don't want to change the definition of marriage, they simply want the same rights and privileges as every other couple who wants to get married with regards to our current legal system.
I'm afraid I have to disagree with your assertion that;
"He represents the Church and obviously can't do that adequetely."
The "Church" has been notorious for "dragging its heels" when it comes to "getting with the times."
How long, exactly, did it take for them to accept Galileo's "Helio-centric theory?"
I completely "get" that the Church will never condone abortion, but to offhandedly state that "contraception" is a "mortal sin" is utterly nonsensical IMHO.
Whenever I hear/read something of that sort, I feel a need to watch the skit from Monty Python's "The Meaning Of Life," "Every Sperm Is Sacred..."
Color me "Jaded..."
He was excommunicated for many reasons mostly publically advocting a stance abjectly different from the Church. It's like the CEO of Verizon placing ads for people to sign up with Comcast. That CEO might as well get a job with Comcast.

I believe that civil unions afford those rights. I believe they will not be satisfied until marriage means between any consenting adults.

We well just have to see where 'getting with the times' takes us. I don't think the Church wants to go there.
BTW the Church has acknowledged that their condemnation of Galileo was wrong but I ask you how many people believed his theory in the 1600's?
The Jesuits are famous for their studies of astronomy and have some of the most sophisticaed equipment.

And finally, were is it written that using contrception is a mortal sin? I am not aware of that. In fact I have always understood that policies of the Church are just that policies but we all have a conscience and are expected to use it in our lives.

We aren't changing the definition of marriage; we are changing access. Legally speaking, there is no difference at all between a same-sex marriage and an opposite-sex one.
All the rights we WANT? I'm an american citizen I demand all the rights other citizens have--like the constitution demands.
Civil unions? Not recognized by other states or the federal government. Rarely hold up in court. And totally unnecessary since we already HAVE a legal contract to protect a committed couples' rights and enforce their responsibilities. We didn't create a "separate but equal" form of marriage for interracial couples; there's no reason to have one for gays.

1.

the formal union of a man and a woman, typically recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife.

You do want to change the definition of marriage and I believe you should have all your rights.

I think there may be something missing here.

Jesus preached that the Jews should follow the teachings of the prophets. He wasn't there to change the religion. He said He had come to fullfill the prophecies. That was His message. When asked what the greatest commandment was he answered''Love God with your whole heart, mind and soul and love your neighbor as yourself.'

The Golden Rule that you are talking about is in the very beginnings of many religions.

You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against your kinsfolk. Love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.

Marriage has never had just one meaning, and the fact that you didn't bother to give a link, or copy more than the first of several definitions from your source merely shows a basic dishonesty on your part.

The use of same gender is relatively new to suit the American thought process.

But not to the word at large, or the concept, which was my point.

"THE" definition cannot be changed, as there has never BEEN just one definition for the word, and words change meanings all the time anyway. That's how language evolves.

No one is trying to change the meaning, just allow access equally to all consenting adults. And there is nothing wrong with that. It will not affect anyone else's marriage one whit.

You didn't copy and paste the entire definition of Marriage, Ink. I especially like this, "The marriage of science and art." It can all be found at this link, including this little ditty:

"Origin of MARRIAGE

Middle English mariage, from Anglo-French, from marier to marry
First Known Use: 14th century"
