No, he did not create a God in his own image, God created US in HIS image. He also gave us rules to live by, and he specifically said that homosexuality is an abomination. Christians did not make this up, it is in both testaments of the Holy Bible. Repeating how much you feel it is good for men to be with men, or women to be with women, does not make it so. It never will, even if man's laws try to make it so. Does man really think he is above God?

Obviously, you created an egotistical god in your own image(EGO). Anyway, I think I’m beginning to hear the sounding brass and tinkling cymbals so I’m outta here. g'nite

You should be able to marry who you love. God is not as judgemental as we are. And yes, the bible was written by men. And yes, the bible is outdated. And no, you will not go to hell for falling in love with someone of your same gender. And yes, religion is just like a sport... its built out of fanatism. And no, being gay is not as bad as the 70% of straight married individuals who cheat on eachother. And yes, I am a straight man living with my girlfriend and I don't believe I'm living in sin. I love her, she loves me. What else can God ask from us? Lastly, no... i don't believe marriage's purpose should be to procreate. It should be for you to choose the person you're going to grow old with and love forever. Children should be optional.

I'm sorry but I don't think anyone, who had access to writing the not so holy bible, spoke directly to God. When was the bible written? Yet our universe was created millions of years ago. Get your story straight and don't depend so much on the information written in a book someone decided to call the bible. Don't get me wrong. I grew up as a catholic and the idea of there being a God that created us and that his word is written in a bible was a nice fantasy. But then I realize that if there is a God, he would love and protect everyone... not just straight people, not just men, etc... Don't be such a fanatic and get out of your little religion box. Trust me, it took me a while.

Oh yea, and the next time YOU speak to God, tell him I need to speak to him because religions have created too many inconsistencies that I cannot trust them.

To whom it may concern:

Many create gods and Christ’s in their own image and even quote from the scriptures merely so they can continue with their personal and political agenda…Nothing whatsoever to do with CHRIST, SERMON ON THE MOUNT ANYONE? but everything to do with EGO. I’m reminded of the time when george (born again Christian?) bush constantly said that he spoke to god when it was obviously the egotistical god he created in his own image.

Buenos dias……

Get your god out of my government. Who are you to jude? Isn't that left for god. Why don't you read the bible doesn't it say "why do you see the speck in your neighbors eye when you can't see the log in your own?" Your opposition is prejudice, civilly unequal. Why aren't those that oppose gay marriage against divorce? Or letting barren couples marry? Your opposition to something you don't understand is just fear. PLAIN AND SIMPLE FEAR. You've bought the message so long you forgot how much of your soul you actually sold. Its just discrimination and give you radical christian lemmings someone to hold power over. God is love. If you deny others love you are satan.

Some people just use religion and their reliance on the bible to create an opinion. They lean on religion to cover the truth about their hate towards gay people. God would not condone hate. All I know is that i don't want to be part of any religion that discriminates in this manner.

Children are protected when all couples are allowed to marry. Love is a family value; all families should have equal rights. Christ said that we are all neighbors and you should love your neighbor.

If two people are willing to commit themselves to a long term serious relationship, it is their business. It does no harm to anyone.

It's sick, and disgusting. gays fight for their rights, they are looking for encouragment, because deep down inside, they know it is wrong. They are only looking for approval, and when someone doesn't they get angry.

I'm tired of people outside of California denigrating us as being a bunch or left wing liberal wackos. Unfortunately, the most vocal ones get the most attention and cause the rest of the US to hate us and look down on Californians. The solid majority of people in this state DO NOT support gay marriage and recent elections have proven this, although the liberals will never admit the facts. The city of San Francisco is a liberal Mecca for immoral gays and the majority of the state does not support this lifestyle or the institutionalization or legal sanctioning/recognition of their immoral and sexual deviant relationships. Unfortunatley, the Muslims tend to have some incompatible views, but at least their Shar'ia law rightfully looks down upon homosexuality. It is simply a lack of control over their sexual desires and they need psychological help. Unfortunately, as with the majority of sexually deviant behaviour (child molestation, homosexuality, bestiality, etc), treatment is rarely effective. Also, after reading many posts on this forum, its obvious that the gays are more active to take the time to post their vote based upon the total. Nevertheless, here's my vote for the silent majority--the straights! Just as in the illegal immigration problem, the vocal minority is who you see on the news and on the streets although the votes on the issue (during elections-Prop 187, etc) clearly show who the majority group is.
