True, the bible does take a strong stance on homosexualtiy.

It also gives us clear directives on divorce. How many church-goers are on their second spouse?

How much of the bible do we posters follow?

You can't pick the easy parts of the bible to quote and enforce. It seems like it is an "All or Nothing" situation, doesn't it?

Surely if God meant that gay thing, he also meant the divorce thing, too. Not to mention His other directions... share your wealth, don't bear false witness, cast the first stone if you are free of sin..........

Christanity teaches us not to be judgemental of other people. Yet most of us judge people for everything they do. If their gay, we judge. If they are fat, we judge. If their a pedifile, we judge. Its NOT our place to judge. That is left to a higher power. So lets let God do the judging. We have enough problems.

Over 1/2 the animals on the planet have sex with either gender. Why should we be any different??

I grew up with a mother who liked men, a cousin who liked men, my grandmother who was married to a man, friends that were heterosexual, and guess what? I still prefer women. It isn't hereditary, quite obviously, and I don't know if it's a genetic thing or a choice -- quite frankly, I don't care. I feel more at ease around girls, and call me a sinner or a psycho or.. whatever, do as you will. For all of those who are saying gays/lesbians are psychopaths and just like pedophiles.. really?/really/? That's.. the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. There is a vast difference between pedophiles and homosexuals. The last time I checked, being a homosexual didn't make you a predator out to convert all of the straight people into gays and corrupt children.

I know we're in the south, smack dab in the middle of the bible belt, but this is a little communist and too restrictive. The bible does speak against gay marriage, yes, but you know what it also says?

"A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin. If she is not a virgin, she will be executed." taken from Deuteronomy 22:13-21. I don't think you should enforce one section of the bible without enforcing the other. So.. non-virgin women, line up for the guillotine.

The bible says gay marriage is a sin? Wonderful. Tell me where it says so in the Constitution of the United States of America.

Where do I have the power to say if it is right or wrong for someone ...I say if two people love each other and they are not hurting anyone else...then go for it....saying it agaist God's word...not everyone is of the same faith so religion needs to need to even come into to play...example not everyone is a Christian....no one relgion is going to convert everyone to believe like them by making law that are actually Christian based...by the way i am married to the opposite sex...it is not up to me or anyone else to say same sex marriage or several other things is wrong...they goes against a Christian belief...thou shall not judge...ok....experience life out side west tn....places that are with the times you might get it...

Gay marriage is wrong. Simple as that. The Bible states it as immoral, therefore it is.

Let them do what they want because that means less competition for straight men.

You are correct.
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will accumulate teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new. 4 They will turn away from hearing the truth and will turn aside to myths.
But we will not die off.
Except that your "doctrine" isn't sound at all, there is no evidence and, realistically speaking, is nothing more than an elaborate work of fiction that was blown way out of proportion simply because when it was written, people were uneducated and needed the answers that science wasn't around to provide. I am not saying religious people now are uneducated, they simply follow an uneducated teaching.

Regardless of whether or not the Bible says gay marriage is wrong, it shouldn't matter. Religion has no foothold in the law of the States -- our founding fathers made it perfectly clear that religious views weren't to influence laws, or any governing of the country.

Denying people their rights through your own personal judgment of them and their actions (especially when the act of judging others goes against the Bible most people use as the backbone of their arguments against homosexuality, ironic) is a despicable and purely hate-filled act. Shameful, indeed.

Awwwww lordy, let's pull out the bible scriptures as if they apply to everyone else. Let's judge other people and assert our opinions and distorted morals on others. Because ya'll haven't fucked up your own kids enough and continue to want to set back the next generation. Let's clean up molestation in catholic churches. A millionaire evangelist is an oxymoron. Gays have existed throughout ALL of humanity, so it's not going away. Can't wait until all these modern religions are mythologized like the Greeks and Romans.

Surprise surprise, the Bible says a whole lot of shit, doesn't make it justified or true. The bible also contradicts itself. If the Bible was truth, then why are there so many denomination?

I guess most of you forget this is America. You may not agree with it, but all should be free.
