Everyone, regardless of race, orientation, religion, etc, should at least be appointed the right of marriage.

if you're speaking about the bible, it's only in the old testament, which the new testament says to disregard! Plus, we don't condone selling our daughters so why pick which outdated laws to support? This is ridiculous.

All couples should be permitted to suffer as their peers while being locked in a committed relationship. Plus, the money generated by the ensuing divorces will stmulate the economy. That benefits everyone.

Oh yes. Its not like a woman sucking a mans penis is or having anal sex is sick and disgusting right? Its also not sick and disgusting that pornography is legal and can be found on the internet exposing many young children and teens to sex at a far to early age. There's nothing sick, disgusting, or 'just wrong' about any of that, huh? Idiot. I live purely to bring fools like yourself down a peg.

Sorry but not everyone believes in God there for the bible doesn't matter to everyone. Get over it. There shouldn't be "laws" from a book that is directed towards people who follow a particular religion.

marriage is a legal agreement with license issued by the state therefore it should not be denied any individual.

Oh good God. Get off your high-horse and walk a bit in someone else's shoes. Your comment adds no validity to this thread, only ignorance on your part. Get a life and leave this guy alone. I agree with him 100%. Scum? Who appears to be the narrow-minded, blind-sided scum here? It looks like you F'tard. Have a great day! NOT!!! Ha-Ha!!

First of all, your not Gay. You're a Sodomite and an abomination, you should be ashamed of yourself.
God created marriage to be between a Man and a Woman. You Sodomites are trying to desecrate the beautiful gift which God ordained for Men and Women.
You only have one hope of salvation from a eternity in Hell, repent of your wickedness and be celebrant.

First... we are not a theocracy... never have been never will be. So your interpretation of your holy book is moot and irrelevant.

Second ... Marriage is a legal concept. If you want it blessed by the theological belief of your choice that is great... not needed, not required. Marriage is a legal civil contract between two of age consenting adults.

Third... the homosexual are not trying to destroy anything what they are trying to do is get equal rights as american citizens.

You know you really should change your name from "christian" to american taliban.... A.T. is much more accurate description than "christian". You want the laws of the United States to match your myopic interpretation of your holy book. That is no different than the taliban

Luke 6:37 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Luke 6:41 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
John 8:7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."
Romans 2:1 You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.
Romans 14:10 You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat.
Romans 14:13 Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way.
1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men's hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.
James 4:11 Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.
This might be something you find most interesting "Christian." Don't forget to do your other studies that I have assigned you.
Thank you for your input but Christians don't just pluck verses out of the Bible and use them to justify any sin.
We take the whole Bible in the right context, to do that you need to study the Bible (Gods word) then you get the whole picture.
We Christians don't judge anyone, I'm not here to judge anyone. I am merely warning Sodomites that they are an abomination in God's sight and they will be cast into Hell.
Unless they repent and accept Jesus as their saviour, they have no hope of avoiding Hell.
This applies to the whole world, not just Sodomites. Every person is tempted by Satan and we have all sinned so badly that Jesus had to come ad pay for our sins.

Excuse me, but marriage isn't a concept of any kind.
Marriage is a God created and ordained institution of Love between a man and woman.
Marriage wasn't invented by people, God created it and He is it's author. Anyone who tries to bastardise to most beautiful institution will be condemned by God.
God is ready to save Sodomites from their filthy sinful practices and the eternal damnation which awaits them if they repent.
God is able to give them a new spirit and they would become a new person.
Jesus didn't come into the world to condemn, but to save that which was lost. We are all sinners and every person needs Jesus as their saviour.
I know x Sodomites who God saved, they now have a family and they are new people.

Let me tell you something, "Hollie r than thou." Who made you God? Last time I checked, I don't think He had an account on here. Also, you may think you are teaching the word of God here, but you're not. You are judging me, and that in itself is a sin. Don't you read the Bible? You proclaimed Christians go to church just to make yourselves feel good and when you leave you talk about everyone at the service that YOU don't feel should be there, or how bad their lives are and how they should be in your eyes. You walk around with a little smile on your face and you think that you are the righteous one. Please, give me a break. There is not telling what goes on behind your closed doors, and all the skeletons in your life, let's hear about them...Tell us won't you please. Tell how perfect your life has been. Oh, and one more thing little christian, did you read the finding about the missing chromosome in gay people years ago? Well, it's already been scientifically proven that we are born this way sweetheart!! So, go do your research before you judge others, and then go take a long hard look in the mirror, okay? When you get done with all of that, then I will be glad to further this conversation with you, but until then. Check yourself at the door, okay?
Please don't get me wrong. I'm not condemning you, only God has the right to condemn and exact vengeance.
I have no issue with Sodomites, that's your choice. You don't sin against me, but you sin against the God who created you.
I'm only trying to warn people of what awaits them if they don't repent and ask Jesus to be their saviour.
Satan's biggest weapon is lies, He would have you believe there is no hell or judgement so you can do as you will.
We are all sinners and we all need Jesus to save us from damnation.
I don't want to name the sins I have committed before I asked Jesus to be my lord and saviour. I will say that I was no better that any other sinner, I was a fornicator, drunkard, heroin addict, violent, thief, liar. That's just to name a few of the less serious sins, I won't go into the heavy sins.
I tried all kinds of things before I finally asked Jesus if He could help and He was the only one who didn't let me down.
He made me a new person but it takes time to starve out the old habits and cravings. He will give you just enough strength to get you through.
Now I don't practice any of the old ways and sin has become an ugly thing. I hope and pray that you would come to know Jesus as you Lord and Saviour.

I am a sinner as well Back2, I struggle everyday, you would not be alone, I literally through prayer keep from sin'ing, I slip, I BEG forgiveness and go and sin no more. But because Im human I will fall when I slip, However with Christ he will catch me and push me back up. This does not mean shamelessly embrace a sin, this means completely stop and struggle to maintain control over your thoughts...as god has said, "Love him heart soul and mind." "Your thoughts should dwell upon GOOD."

Wrong... Unless of course you are saying that anyone not believing in the "judeo Christian" god is not married. How can something "created" by God... be applied to a muslim... or athiest, or hindu.. or ... you get my point... Marriage has NOTHING to do with religion... it can if youwish be blessed by your theological belief.. but not needed nor required.

"Marriage wasn't invented by people, God created it and He is it's author. Anyone who tries to bastardise to most beautiful institution will be condemned by God."

Really... and you get this how... by YOUR holy book... which is better than someone elses holy book how?.... again your view... which is moot since we are not a theocracy. Marriage is a legal contract, a civil contract between two consenting adults... a religious institution neverhas and never will be required.

so face it... you call your self a Christian... you are no better than the taliban... Really should change yhour name to American Taliban.. because like them... you want to push your interpretation of your holy book as law. That can only work in a theocracy...

Yes, the bible does say that it is an abomination, but the word abomination meant back then something completely different then how we use to today. It meant "not natural, not normal." Also, in the Bible it says that,
Seven Deadly Sins Lust
Gluttony
Greed
Sloth
Wrath
Envy
Pride
so it looks like everyone is a sinner? Also, the Bible speaks of Eunuchs and in fact quotes Jesus Christ your savior saying, "Do not hate the Eunuchs for they are born this way." I believe its in the book of Matthew. The Bible also says there is but "one judge."
Romans 2:1 says, "Therefore thou are inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest does the same things."
There is one judge. It is not up to us to decide wrong or right. If you do not agree with same sex marriage that is your right. But at the same time it is not our place to decide who another person can "love."
I do not understand it myself, but it is not my place to understand. However I feel that they are entitled to the same fundamental rights and pursuit of happiness as everyone else. Marriage should not be regulated if you are of legal age. Why dont we let God be God and judge.
You are so wrong and you have a fools tongue. The seven deadly sins arent even in the bible, its a catholic man made doctrine. Repent blasphemer! Know that I like you had to hate myself, and die daily, to this day I continue to die....Until you shed arrogance and remain unwilling to accept tne truth, you are of your father the devil. Not my word...Gods, im merely here to remind you. Godbless.
