everyone is entitled to love & you cant help who you fall in love with wether it be a man or a woman! & when you love somone, you marry them in a ceremony so you can share with friends & family that love for one another.

Marriage is between a man and a woman. The reason for Marriage is Biblical. Look at the OT. It was an institution the God initiated. And I don't have to explain what God's view is toward homosexuality. Why does anyone sense the need to press this issue so hard? If you are homosexual, obviously I believe that God does not approve. But He does love you. When it comes to marriage, it is a "Christian" institution that our society has adopted and is now trying to twist to fit what they want it to be. If you want to live in sin, that is your choice. But you don't have to feel the need to press the issue to adopt a Christian God ordained institution into your lifestyle, especially when you may not even agree with him.

Check your history! Marraige began being 'sanctioned' by the church because during nomatic times, ministers did not go to war. The history of having attendants was so that both the bride and the groom would have a witness to the union and the preacher would keep the record of the union. This was simply to protect the woman in the event that the man did not return due to death or desertion! It garaunteed the man's family would provide and care for the woman. As far as the Bible (which I do believe in),PLEASE read it! The abomination that soooo many people refer to also indicates that eating pork is an abomination! HA! Finally, "twist to fit" 'live in sin" ????? ALL SINS ARE EQUAL IN THE EYES OF GOD! & I am pretty sure that assuming you know "God's view toward homosexuals and that he doesn't approve" would be considered judging your neighbor. We are all sinners! The joke is that a 'Christian' marriage does not need sanctioned by the state, it is a commitment 2 people make before God and ask for His blessing and guidance - no minister needed. However, what homosexuals are "pushing" for are the LEGAL benefits and rights afforded to heterosexual couples. Do NOT confuse to two!
