while the bible dose adddress homosexuality ,it does not explictly mention gay marriage /same sex marriage.it clear however ,that the bible condemns homesexuality as a immoral and unnatural sim .LEVITICUS 18:22 identifies homosexual sex as a Abomination Romans 1;26-27 declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful,unnatural,lustful and indecentfirst corinthains 6;9 state that homsesexual are unrighteous and wil not inhetit in to the kingdon ofGod . Since both desires and actions are condemnes in the bible ,it is clear that homosexuals 'marrying' is not Gods will and and would be in a fact a sinfull .whnwew the bible mentions marriage it is between a woman and man ..to give sanction to gay and same sex marriage would be to give appoval to tha homosexulal life style ,which the bible clearly and consistenly condemns as a sinful . which iam a christian and a woman of God and will stand firmly againt the idea of same sex and gay marriage is a offense to Good who created marriage for a man and woman Genesis 2;21-24.

Why are we putting the bible to this not everybody is a christian and this nation was built upon many different religions and people who had no religion at all. It's called separation of church and state maybe you should read the constitution instead of thinking that this nation was built solely on christianity.
my point God is the one he made and ordained marriage so if you dont belive in God why would u want to be married to anyone !

And just to add, the Christians that are hateful towards gays are not really Christians, because if they were real Christians they would be loving to that person no matter how wrong. Though I do believe that gays will go down there, but you see me ppinting fingers and telling them that. My point is that the Christians that say they're Christian but hate, are actually hypocrites. So don't judge all of them and say,"Christians hate on sinnful people, they always judge us blah blah blah.." No those are the hypocrites that judge people, not REAL CHRISTIANS.
Plus the says that if you judge other people, then you'll be judged by the Father.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matthew 5:7

Ummm because marriage is a legal contract between two consenting adults. That marraige has nothing to do with religion. It has to do with two people entering into a binding agreement. To be married all one needs is a marriage license, a witness annd some one to affirm it.

You do realize we are not a theocracy... that we as a nation never have, do not now and God willing never will base our laws and rights on any one persons theological belief system. So what you holy book says has no bareing on ssm, or marriage laws in general.

No, the Bible's view of homosexuality is not politically correct. The politically correct will say there is nothing wrong with two people just loving each other. Who are we Christians to judge them? But, who are they to say what is morally right and wrong? Do they have an objective standard of morals that all people should follow? No, they don't. They appeal to things like "society" and "common sense" and "basic rights", etc., to promote their opinion of homosexual normality. Well, societies have been wrong before (Nazi Germany, anyone?). What is common sense to one person isn't necessarily common sense to another. And, basic rights? Well, we all have basic rights. But, the homosexuals want special rights. They want laws passed to protect their sexual behavior. They also want to redefine marriage and require everyone else to accept it!(Will the redefinition stop with homosexuality? Don't bet on it. Pedophiles are now asking for rights, too.) Think about it. The pro-homosexuals want laws passed to protect a behavior, a behavior! It is, after all, homoSEXuality. I want to know what right do the politically correct, pro-homosexuals have to impose their values on everyone else? What right do they have to condemn Christians, call us names, and be so very intolerant? They don't have sound arguments, but they do have liberal dogmatism pushed along by the momentum of the liberal media. They are successfully getting homosexuality promoted in schools, TV, and movies as "normal" and healthy. As a result, their confidence and successes have pumped up their bravado so much that they even oppress those who oppose homosexuality - a fact blatently ignored by the double-standard-liberal-media. But what are we to expect when liberal dogmatism is king and all opposing views are to be condemned? The pro-homosexuals want everyone to think like them and approve of their "inborn sexual orientation" -- and if you don't? Well, then you're labeled a bigot! Yep, they are so tolerant. That is why they want laws passed to ensure that their behavior of pairing a penis to a penis and a vagina to a vagina is protected as a special legal right even if the majority of people think otherwise! But hey, its okay if the minority pushes the majority around, redfines marriage, enforces loosening sexual morays, hides the harmful health statistics of homosexual behavior, and not-so-gently forces a change in society as a whole while they arrogantly yell, "This is normal!"

....really? It is?

Right.. I must be gay to be a supporter of ssm... Now if I support equal rights for women and minorities does that mean I am a minority women..

Now tell me how you have the right to deny equal treatement under the law to an american citizen... just because it goes against your theological viewpoint?... This has NOTHING to do with ANYONES religion. It has to do with equal rights. With the government granting certain considerations both legal and monitary to a group of citizens which it does not to another simply do to their sexual orientation.

If you see someones' sex as pertinent thats your problem. You also can trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not upon your own understanding. But as long as you lean on your own understanding you are not trusting the Lord. Knowledge puffeth up but love edifies. Love hopes all things, bears all things, believes all things and endures all things. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. There is no law against love. God is love. Praise the Name of Jesus.
smh you are really out your mind if u belive that God is okay with any type on gay marriiage ,!!!!!!!!!

" homosexuality relates to what a person does"

Really....
So going by what you say one is neither homo. or hetero until they do something about it....
However if you go by the Bible you can not do anything about it till marraige...
But why would a male, who since he has not done anything.. so has no attraction to a women, get married?..... If he/she doesnt get married then they are neither homo. nor hetero..... really?

Homosexuality is being attracted to your own sex... hetero is being attracted to the opposite sex... IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GETTING BUSY.

Now you can "believe in your holy book" all that you want. However, since we are not a theocracy, your beliefs play no part in the distribution of rights and privileges given to a u.s. citizen.

I'll never understand what the problem is with hating gay marriage or gay people in general. It's so stupid. It stupid bimbos who get divorced over and over again are allowed to keep getting married, why can't two gay men who actually love each other and know how to have a relationship, unlike most heterosexual couples. Maybe that's the problem, it's jealousy. How sad.
well i have no reason at all to be jealousy off a homosexuality relationship iam very happy married woman off 12 yeras and 4 kids , i justed know what the bible states about homosexuality and it worng , i dont hate any one now i may hate the lifestyl they are liveing !!!!

Wow all in caps.. you really must be angry... anyone else scared of "the truth" now?

You keep saying that homosexuality is a choice. Tell me when did you choose to be hetero?... not when did you start noticing the opposite sex and get all excited... but when did you sit down, look at the options, and make a clear conciouse decision that you from then on would be a hetero?... Did your parents sit you down and say "truth now that you have pubic hair, you MUST choose at this moment to be hetero or homosexual?.....

The Bible also talkes about divorce, for reasons other than infidelity, and remarriage for people who are divorced for reasons other than infidelity and it is all the way wrong. It is SO wrong, that Jesus himself commented on it (something he NEVER EVER did on homosexuality).
Yet most christians tend to ignore this. The invite the adulterous couple (one person divorced, for reasons other than infidelity, remarried to the other) into their church families. Heck their ministers even help in the adultery by marrying the couple.... but that is ok.... hypocites.
