The question you need to ask yourself, is "How does a gay married couple effect your life?" People should have the right to marry who ever they wish. If it does not effect your life, then why should you care? If you don't like it, then stay with the opposite sex and you shouldn't have any problems.

now there's quite the little nigget of original wit, isn't it?
wonder just how many people that little quote has transformed from homosexuality to heterosexuality?
sum total would be ZERO.
the laws are secular, not biblical. if you want to live under biblical law, that's YOUR choice, additionally, here in america, we get to choose WHICH faith or denomination to follow. if you want to live under a theocracy, there's daily flights to iran.
Explain to me why we have made SECULAR LAWS against having sex with a CONSENTING 15 year old,or your life long pet? The reason is because society has found it MORALLY wrong.That has nothing to do with the Bible or Gods laws that you brought up! So that PROVES that everyone knows some things are right and some things are WRONG .. we just know beastiality is wrong and underage sex(even consenting within 1 year of it being legal)is wrong.Those boundaries should never be crossed for good reason just like same sex marriage,homsexuality, pedophilla,transgenderism.Cry all you want about how it doesnt affect anyone else and how we are all adults and blah,blah,blah but its morally wrong and regardless of what you think, society as a whole is affected negatively. I explained how that is in my earlier post on here.

children and animals do not have the ability or the conscience to enter into legally binding contracts.
do try to stick to the topic.
our public secular laws are not based on biblical laws - otherwise there'd be laws rstricting our diets, our clothing, our hairstyles, divorce would not be legal, etc etc etc.
you can only dictate morality to yourself, not anyone else. legal adults in america choose for themselves what goes on in their lives. we all get to choose, according to our u.s. constitution, whether or not to prescribe to any particular faith or denomination.
if you want to live in a theocracy, there's planes leaving daily for iran. our laws are secular, not biblical.

Can you please be a little more redundant?? Everyone understands
our current laws are secular, not biblical,that's not even an argument!There ARE however moral laws ingrained in everyones conscience.Stealing someone elses property is wrong,but you dont need the police to tell you that.If you want to steal, just suppress your conscience and take what you want.Similarly,we in society have now made whatever "feels good" the law of the land,regardless of what we know are the consequences.(Ex. multiple partners = STD'S, or same sex marriage = children growing up with gender identity problems and multiple pschyological issues because after all,why doesnt Johnny have two daddys,or mommys)The bottom line is..If you sow to the wind,in due time, you will reap the whirwind.If everyone does what is morally right in there own eyes,who is really right in the end because we all have to live with YOUR fun and games.I have news for you heartandmind..truth and decency in the purest form is NOT relative..they are absolute terms and never changing unlike your relatives who you believe evolved from apes.Now you believe its time for us to evolve back into same sex loving animals? No thanks.

you don't get to dictate anyone else's morality other than your own. laws don't for a good reason.
the bottom line is that america is a relatively free country for a reason and we all should enjoy the same rights and priviliges.

truth is relative - ask and cop who has to investigate crimes, all the different perspectives tell a different story of what was seen by the various eyewitnesses. with ultimately, the science figures out the hardest questions - and coincidentally, the science, the research, the data all flies in the face of your attitude. which is fine - your opinion, your attitude, don't really play out in the laws. a person's feelings don't get to dictate how others should act - i disagree with some of the laws we have, but i don't get to tell someone they can't do whatever it is they're doing just because i don't like it, when the laws are clear that they can. that's part of living here in america. you get to choose how you conduct yourself in your own life & no one else gets to dictate to you what to do.

well, i'd have to disagree with you there. every adult should be able to decide which other non-related adult to marry here in america, without governmental intervention, or some neighbor deciding, for that matter.

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.(Romans 1:18-19).
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.(Romans 1:24-25)
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.(Romans 1:26-27)
Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind; to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, and ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.(Romans 1:28-32)
As a society we’ve acquired such depraved minds that we don’t even see what’s happening to us. We should know that we’re on the brink of destruction, but we keep getting worse and worse, applauding behavior that we would have condemned in disgust only a few years ago.

Yes,and the craziest thing is that people dont understand why we are at the point we are.We have completely lost the abilty to govern ourselves as a nation,in our states, our towns, all the way down to our own family's.We cant even parent our own children if we everyone has a variable set of rules teaching them what is right and wrong. Our loss of values and determining what is truly right and wrong is at the very core of the problem we face everyday.

We already see it openly in our military and the president of the United States has now made it known that he will no longer allow the Attorney General of the United States to fight for the Constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. There are now six states which have passed laws that allow homosexuals to get married and many more are working on the legislation to do the same. And now we see California, the leader in the promotion of homosexuality, passing laws that demand that homosexuality and its history be taught in schools, and setting up homosexuals as role models for impressionable children. I wonder if the lesson God gave us concerning Sodom and Gomorrah is going to be a part of that history taught in public schools. Openly homosexual judges are now running our court systems and homosexuality is permeating our land. Need I go on?

“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Romans 1:29-32. God gave them (these God rejecting pagan people) over to all the above mentioned adjectives because He will not be ignored nor will He be humiliated by foolish people who want to replace Him with some inanimate object as the focus of their worship. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is our Creator God. It’s a slap in His face to believe in anything contrary to that truth. Therefore since so many Americans enjoy slapping the face of God, God has been forced to act by judging America.

the laws of this nation are secular. that's because our constitution guarantees everyone the right to choose or not choose a faith to believe in.

so if you're thinking god is judging america - you must be laughing your heads off with the recent earthquake and the coming hurricane irene. LOL.

if you don't believe in the united states constitution or in fairness and equality for all citizens, then you don't deserve to be an american. it's not always easy to be an american, but it's better than any other nationality on this earth.

the 14th amendment guarantees everyone fair and equatible treatment and due process under the laws of the united states. no mention of race, gender, heritage, political party or class of citizen. it assures ALL citizens the same thing.

As I have told you many times, the promises in God's Word are true but so are the warnings. This nation was founded on the Word of God and the hope of Jesus Christ. God blessed this nation abundantly, but over the past 235 years we have squandered those blessings and now live in complete rebellion to God and His Word. Just the fact we have abandoned God and have turned to the false gods and idols of this world, is enough for God to pronounce His judgment on this nation!

Sadly, in addition to worshipping the false gods of the world, we are living in utter rebellion to the Truth of God's Word. Sexual sin is rampant. Men treat other men in the most inhumane ways imaginable. People worldwide turn to drugs and alcohol for strength. Human life that can only come from God is no longer respected or valued. The greatest example of that is the fact that we legally slaughter over 4,000 innocent babies in this nation every 24 hours. That fact alone demands God's judgment on our nation!

It is not God's wish, he says in the bible to be fruitful and multiply. Same sex obviously can not naturally reproduce, and God doesn't make mistakes.
