Apparently you haven't read the Bible. Why don't you go do that, then we can discuss the many things the Bible got wrong.

Actually, the last paragraph makes perfect sense. Most Christians that use the Bible to defend their prejudices against ssm and homosexuals are "cafeteria christians" . They use the Bible on homosexuality because it meets their needs, they dislike homosexuality and the Bible gives them cover. However when faced with other Biblical truths they tend to ignore what the Bible says or try to explain it away. Divorce and remarriage is the perfect example. The Bible states in several places, that the only acceptable reason for divorce is infidelity. Also if you are divorced for ANY other reason, you may not remarry as you will be committing adultery. Now if you look at any homo. hating bible church congregation, you will see loads of divorced (non infidelity) people. However they are ok to have in the congregation, but not that homosexual. Likewise most remarried people in the congregation come from non infidelity divorces. Heck the minister is complicit in the adultery by marrying them. You do not see outrage on this. At the very least the minister should be fired for going agaist Gods word... but it is ok.... we can ignore that particular part of the Bible.... because we do not like it...
you are exactly right. that is the way alot of churches operate now a days. ignore a smaller sin for what seems to be a bigger one. but that preacher will stand before God one day and give account why he did such an act.

You don't get to put rights up to a majority vote.
The majority of voters in Alabama probably think that Hindus shouldn't be allowed to live in their state.
Should Alabama be allow to pass a law banning Hindus from having their religion?
And you are right, my belief is going to have no effect on your make believe Jewish sky wizard who murders children.
I started to go into depth into both this and the next post. I have read my bible and I know exactly what it says. In english, latin, hebrew, greek after all is said and the important question is do you beleive what you have just read. I have read your posts on here and other sites and you will argue that the sky is blue. If you want to get a gay lover and get married. Go ahead. One thing is for sure you can not stop me from praying for you. and that I am going to do while refraining myself to respond to senseless posts.

Well, first of all, I'm not gay. However, I'm also not black and not a woman, and that doesn't mean I want to deny those groups rights either.

You are free to pray for whatever you like, so long as you leave it at that. Stop trying to pass laws which deny American citizens rights and there will be no problem whatsoever.

You'll be left playing Jewish make-believe, clucking your tongue, and pretending you know something about history.

Meanwhile, those of us with an education will be doing EVERYTHING ELSE in this society while you free loaders try and drag us down. And we'll LET YOU, because WE recognize that you have the right to be wrong if that's what makes you happy.

However, no amount of praying. No amount make believe. No amount of threatening everyone else with damnation is going to turn rabbits into cows.

The Bible was written by men with an imperfect understanding of the world around them. Pretending that it was written by anyone else is simply fooling yourself.

Bottom line is you cannot call yourself a Christian and be for gay marriage.
Typical response. I could return the favor but I unlike you know where I stand on this Earth. I am not God. Too bad you can't see that distinction because it would clear up a lot in your life.

So, your argument against gay marriage is that some famous people have had sex.

Brilliantly put.

Now, go back to your jewish superstitions

Biblically a man owed the women and he could marry "own" many many wives
