It is an abomination

Abomination:
(Latin abominatus, past participle of abominari, "to deprecate as an ill omen"); English term used to translate the Biblical Hebrew terms shiqquwts,("shiqqts ") and sheqets which are derived from shqats, or the terms תֹ&#14 68;וע& #1461;בָ ה tōʻ&#275 ;ḇā or to'ba (noun) or ta'ab (verb). Abomination in English signifies that which is exceptionally loathsome, hateful, sinful, wicked, or vile.

I just want to know if you are a gay man married to a man how do you have a child ?

If you are a gay woman married to a gay woman how do you have a child ?

You say adopt, well how is that child born ?

In order for the world to grow it must have a woman and man to make it happen.

It is already being started in this world to cut out the true marrage, so that we can reduce the world numbers, by allowing gay marrage, allowing abortions.

It should only be allowed when a woman has been raped,or when the birth of the baby will cause the death of the mother.

I know i'll hear from the gay people on this but as one has said" Build you a bridge and get over it!

So a man and a woman who love each other, but for one reason or another, can't have children should not be allowed to marry?

If a man and a woman who is too old to have children fall in love, they shouldn't be allowed to marry?

If a man and a woman love each other but choose not to have children, they shouldn't be allowed to marry?

There are lots of marriages which don't produce children. Should they have been forbidden?

Yes they should as there is a possible way that a baby can be made, and that child would be a miracle for those families, and a gift. but with the other marriages there is no way other then out side help from a man or woman that this kind of miracle of life can be made.

why cant gays marry gays, heterosexuals can marry heterosexuals. there is no institution of marriage, if there is there needs to be an institution on divorce. nobody is asking a heterosexual to marry a gay person, they are asking for civil rights, for the freedoms only some of us have in this country, when you are the minority and only want what everyone else already has, i am sure you will see it differently. hopefully! very weak argument on procreation, especially in a world faced with overcrowding and lack of resources looming in a few generations.

Freedoms that are given to us through our constitution, which is based on Judeo-Christian principles. People kill me that base things on our constitution but do not know or understand in the text of how it was written. Our constitution does not give freedom for everything. Bembh I don't think you understood WTFup. He is just saying 1+1=2 not 1-1=2. Troy don't throw our constitution in this. It's clear what it says. NO! That is a Judeo-Christian belief that marriage is between a woman and a man. And if you base your our arguement on freedoms through the constitution then thank you my point is made. Now please try to understand it wiht your finite mind.gggadget dudes kissing dudes disgusting

Gadget, with respect to Bembh, she is stating the obvious arguments anyone should understand.

ON our constitution, The first amendment establishes that "congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof". The treaty of Tripoli asserts that " the government of the United States of America,is not in any sense, founded on the Christian religion". This was one of our nations first treaties.

These example should help you to understand that this nations founding has nothing to do with Christian principles.

Another example is the word "God" never appears in the Constitution or The Declaration of Independence. It implies a "natural creator or god, rather than a Christian god"

From one inspector to another, I expected a more logical response.

Seems to me that you're attempting to intermingle the religious aspects of marriage with the legal aspects of marriage. And it can't be done. As far as the "state" (I mean the United States) is concerned, marriage is strictly a legal status, with no religious meaning whatsoever. That's why marriages can be performed by judges and/or justices of the peace. It's a legal arrangement which allows, among other things, the acquisition of community property; the right to file joint tax returns; the right to make decisions for your spouse when he/she is incapable of making them on their own; and the right to visit the spouse or partner while in hospital. That's what homosexuals want. They want the same legal rights, as outlined above, that everyone else has. Period. If two men who live in your neighborhood go to the judge and get married so they can file a joint tax return or buy property together, how does that, in any way, hurt you? How does that, in any way, diminish any of your freedoms? How does that, in any way, affect you? Answer: it doesn't.

Good point you made there, I would like to say more but I would make people mad, and it would not be taken in context so I will just say I don't agree with gay marriage, and end it there as far as this blog.

God Bless all
