No Christian can ever support homosexual 'marriage,' because the Bible repeatedly condemns and prohibits all homosexual behavior in both Testaments and in the plainest of terms. Even excluding religion, there is no justification for homosexual 'marriage.'Homosexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in how homosexual live!

No significant percent of the homosexual population has 'married' in ANY country that allows it, and studies have shown that few such 'marriages' are even exclusive relationships.

The homosexual 'marriage' movement is a hate based political charade attacking what others hold sacred.

No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No economically or physically unequal genders are involve. No child is ever born as a direct result, and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Having both is one of the most accurate statistical predictions of a child's future success in life.

Homosexual themselves overwhelmingly reject 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

And now you think you get to be in charge of what other people call "sacred".

Hold whatever you want sacred. That doesn't mean that someone else can't hold something DIFFERENT sacred. What, your "sacred" has to trump everyone else's? Are you not able to hold something sacred, without shutting everyone else down? Is your sense of religious privilege so BLOATED that you can't allow anyone ELSE to have their OWN traditions?

Why don't you just finally admit that you want Christianity to be the ruling governmental power, over the willing and unwilling alike? Otherwise, go hold your sacred things QUIETLY. Other people are trying to do the same.

The Bible repeatedly condemns homosexual acts, in both Testaments and in the plainest of terms. You'll never change that fact, and this thread is discussing a Christian Church. As for homosexual 'marriage,' the fraud of it remains exposed. You failed to refute even one point that I posted.

If equal rights for all bothers you so much that youíre compelled to post the same nasty, senseless comments about it 300 times a day, itís time to admit your problem is more than a little serious. Yes, you could get professional help, but youíre so far gone that itís probably hopeless.

There is good news, however. Pick up a copy of Final Exit by Derek Humphrey and follow the instructions with your usual religious fervor. Youíll be united with your sweet Jesus faster than you can say Hail Mary. Do it now. For Christís sake.

Many of the Bible's dictums have none or little relevance today.. Its barbaric tone might have been good enough for its time, but that time passed a very long time ago.. This doesn't mean you cannot get some nourishment from it.. But it would be madness to make it your staple diet..
