TOOL...You are so Right! The bible also say`s that anyone who gets a divorce and then remarries is committing adultery. It`s clearly a no no and any sinner who is guilty of this will surely burn in Hell...Keep spreading the good news about the Homo`s and Adulterers! Maybe we should set up camp outside the divorce courts and let these poor folks know whats in store for them. Oh...I forgot...That's what the church is supposed to do!

God doesnt matter if your gay or not i am 17 and happily engaged to a beautiful woman. It is not a sin. the bible has been passed down from over 100 years or more. and of course men say that men should not be in bed with other men. Its not a crime you cant change who you are. Being gay is not a choice its something your born with. And if you dont like it thats fine but other people care and want to be openly married. Why hide it?? if straight people cant be married why cant gays?? theres nothing wrong with us? were just like you and everyone else. its just we like the same sex. plus now and days half of the world is attracted to the same sex. its a proven fact. so dont hate if you against it thats fine but dont sit there and say that its bad and your go to hell cuz your wrong. god is not going to send me a child of his to hell just because i like the same sex. I havent killed anyone or stolen so there is no crime for that. Yes, everyone has there own oppinion and this is fine mine. if your against thats fine i havent nothing against you cuz your old fashion but im tired of people telling me im going to hell because of who i am. this is me i am me. im a friend and daughter and sport player and i look perfectally fine. dont hate us cuz of who we choice to love. thats our oppoinion. and you have yours. I hope they pass it that we can finally get married. cuz im tired of hearing people saying im going to hell cuz your wrong. i just got one thing to say to all people who oppose it. GOD IS THE ONLY!!!!!!!! PERSON WHO CAN JUDGE ME!

Way more than 100 years GP. Like ...Way, WAUY more. And actually the Bible states, rather clearly that homosexuality is an abomination. It is a choice too. You can choose not to engage in the deviant behavior.

R3eality check: Men are supposed to be with women, and women are supposed to be with men. Any other arrangement regarding same sex intimate partnership is deviant behavior.

Born with it, or by choice, doesn't matter. It's wrong, either way. If I had my way, it would be perfectly cool to sleep with any and every woman I was attracted to. But, I'm not supposed to do that, therefore I don't.

If you feel some sort of abnormal sexual attraction to other women, don't act on it. Accept that it's one of the imperfections we all can have, and use your Godgiven sense of right and wrong , instead of letting yourself and other deviants falsely tell you it's perfectly acceptable. It isn't, at least by thinking humans with the ability to recognize that "a moral standard" is actually not a bad thing, even if it occasionally keeps us from falling for the silly "If it feels good, do it" mentality.

Am I judging you? Nope. Am I using my Godgiven sense of discernment to realize that what you do and espouse is wrong? Yep.

you have no right to sit there and tell me whats wrong or not. This is me this is who i am and you dont have to like it. what i do with who i do it with is none of your business. But dont sit there and tell me that its wrong cuz to be honest with you i think its fine. Why do you get to be with women and love them and marry them when we cant even be happy with our same sex. I was raised in a family that they say men should be with women and woman should be with men. but look how i turned out. im still gay. i see what your saying about it being wrong in the bible and all that but this is who i am. I WAS BORN GAY! i didnt choose it. It was my choice to be with a woman just like it anyone else's choice to be with the same sex if they want to. Being with the same sex is not a wrong thing. why is it that you people get to get married and fall in love and have kids with the different sex. and we cant do that. WERE HUMANS! we have feelings too. we would love for that to happen rather than hide our marriage and hide who we are. Jesus has said "deny me infront of your friends and i will deny you infront of my father". why deny who we are?? why hide it when were not happy?? all we want is to be happy like everyone else. then why should we have to hide it and you dont. its not fair!

Actually, I have every right to tell ya what's wrong and what's right, at least on some issues ... like this one. You're simply wrong. You are of course free to be oblivious to this reality, but it does'nt change the reality.

And your sexual preference isn't "who you are", it's what you allowed of yourself. Us Heterosexuals get to love and marry and be happy because ...well ..we aren't deviant. You were not born gay either, any more than I was born heterosexual. We were all born asexual. Is your condition a genetic disorder? Are you a product of your environment? Did you just make bad choices as you developed your predilection for the wrong sex?

I don't know, and don't really give it much thought, because it doesn't really matter. It's still wrong, simple as that. I suspect it might be a matter of "all of the above" actually,though to what degrees, I won't pretend to know. I suspect it's different ratios for different people.

What I do know though is that by pretending it isn't deviant, isn't wrong (and it is) it opens the door for people, young'uns in particular, who are confused growing up to go down the wrong path.

It causes untold heartache for families and friends. You made your choices, for whatever reasons. Do I feel you should be persecuted for them? No, I don't. But I also don't feel you should expect society to simply pretend what you do is perfectly normal. I don't feel you should feel ANY sense of entitlement to have your deviant choices somehow rewarded either.

Now if I saw someone truly persecuting you simply for being gay, I'd be the first one to intercede on your behalf. As far as I'm concerned, as an example, if I saw some thugs beating up a person with Downes Syndrome, just because they had that problem, I'd step in too. But would I hire them to manage my business? Not likely.

As far as I'm concerned, if you want to be openly gay, hey, have at it. but don't hold it against me if I don't want an openly gay guy flitting around like a fairy hopping on toadstools dealing with my customers in my business.

If you choose that lifestyle, be ready to accept the consequences of it, don't whine to me about discrimination. Am I discriminating? Oh yes, I'll cop to that. Proudly. Being gay is NOTHING to be proud of, Any more than being born with three arms is. If you truly were "born gay" as you put it ... I'd suggest just facing the self reality that it it is a type of defect, and simply deal with it. Not that one needs to be ashamed of having three arms, but again, nothing to be proud of either.

Personally, I think most homosexuals just made a few bad choices in life, and they get so militant about it they lock themselves into the deviant lifestyle, instead of just admitting the made the mistakes in the first place.

And some are simply perves, who essentially are ready to have sex with anyone, just to get off.
There is more to life than sex. And it's best shared with the natural and necessary life contrast between men and women. Sticking with the same sex is kind of a "life copout" actually. Ya'll probably understand each other too much, and that takes some of the zest out of life.

You really ought to go to dating guys, gay pride.(I'm assuming you are a Lesbian) much more of a challenge to make it work, but the potential for satisfaction in the long run is what life is actually all about.

One more thing: LIFE isn't fair, GP, no matter what your sexual preference. No sense whining about fairness in life.

marriage was made for man and woman. That is what God created one for another. If we allow this to continue to happen. Why have any laws at all if we allow gay marriages why not let men have more then one wife if it's wrong for a man to have more then one wife it is also wrong for same sex gender to get married. It wrong and that is from the Holy Bible.

One thing that makes the "Gay is okay" crowd a little uncomfortable, is that virtually ALL of their pro-homosexuality argument lines of reason could be applied to incestuous relationships too. And even most gay people will concur that is wrong.

Click your heels together three times and keep telling yourself that lesbianism is okay and it makes you happy. I didn't exactly use the Bible as a primary position to debate this issue, though it is relevant. If I remember correctly, you are the one who brought the Bible into the debate in the first place, so I'm not sure what the point was to that particular statement.

And you clearly don't have much experience with men. Your description of us guys and what you assert makes us tick seems to have been drawn out of watching Sitcoms, it's a quite unrealistic and cartoonish analysis.

As for if I see anything wrong with you ... well .... you're dating the same sex as yourself. I'm not perfect either. My legs are slightly bowed. But a difference between you and I is that I recognize it as a defect. I'm not a member of the "Bowlegged Pride" organization because it's nothing to be proud of. Am I ashamed of it? Nope. Haven't ever lost even a bit of sleep over my "defect" Tell me this GP ... How much sleep have you lost over yours? There is a reason for that .... because what ya do is wrong, and unlike my "defect," yours is your choice.

I'm not "some dick" by the way. Men are necessary in society. After all imagine a world run by a bunch of Dykes ....oh geez. Didn't like my use of the term "Dyke?" Well ...then I'd recommend not using terms like 'dicks' to reference men in general.

HAHAHAHA you cant call me a dyke, lesbo, weirdo i dont care it still wont affect me. Trust me i learned to know that im so much stronger than men calling me names. HA thats so high school.?? btw how old are you looking at your message i say either still in high school or maybe collage or just an old man with no life?

Actually GP ... I wasn't calling you names per se ...I was demonstrating that YOU calling me names wasn't particularly rational. Re-read my post ...Without your hatred clouding your judgment, it'll make more sense.

You aren't coming across as particularly strong, either ...just defensive. I suspect that defensiveness is relative to what I've been talking about. You're trying to convince yourself that the lifestyle you've found yourself in isn't wrong. That 'little feeling' of guilt you're trying to convince yourself doesn't exist? It exists, GP. That's what's left of your conscience trying to tell ya what's right for you.

Frankly, I think you're a heterosexual who got confused at some point, and aren't quite ready to admit ya went down the wrong path. The sooner you come to grips with that, the better for you, really.

Woodcutterron, I'm not confused. i know what i want and im happy with who im with. Plain and simple. nobody can make me change who i am. not you, my family, or even god. This is who i am.. Im sorry you dont appove of it. but im not going to change for anyone. If you dont like it thats fine with me but dont sit there and tell me im confused and im a heterosexual and got confused at one point in my life. Cuz your be wrong.

Lets see ... you date a sex that can not contribute to the continuation of your species, and your family tells you you're wrong ... GOD tells you you're wrong ... mother nature tells you you're wrong ... but your family, God, nature, etc. are the ones who are wrong .... got it.

Nobody can help ya make the right choices if ya stubbornly and naively choose not to, I do concur to that.

You're a teabagging hypocritical right wing bigot racist. How about them apples to go with your book of fairy tales that makes you think, falsely, that you are better than anyone else. Go home to tend your chickens and yell at the sky about why you're so mad that you're a loser.

Hey JJ,
I notice you following me like a whipped puppy around the internet, heheh. It's kind of pathetic, but if you like getting spanked like a monkey in multiple venues, hey ...whatever floats your boat!

I'm not a 'tea bagger', not a bigot, not a racist. I suppose I could just make up a few disparaging things to call you out of thin air too. It's pointless and not very interesting though, so I won't do it. Writing Fairy tales seems to be more ...well ...your game JJ, heheh.

I don't think I'm "better than anyone else", though clearly, I'm better than you specifically. And probably by virtually any measure. I do have to tend to my chickens though, but yelling angrily ... at the sky or anything else ... not really my thing.

Note that I'm not frantically trying to follow you around the internet .... you are frantically following me around the internet. And you feel I'm the loser, heheh. Okey-Dokey!
