Have any of you Bible thumpers who keep saying its wrong because the Bible says so actually read the REST of the rules of the Old Testament??? I seriously doubt there is any among you who abides by all of the laws. Which, in case you don't already know, makes you hypocrites.
By the way, I'm straight, but I'm for FREEDOM.

I assume you don`t know what the Bible really says about the topic so I`ll post it here for you.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Romans 1:22-32 New Testement

I`m for free-will but their is coming a day when ALL will give account on the day of Judgement.

Whay should I be tolerant of behavior that I find morally repugnant just because it is politically correct to do so? I will not compromise my morals and values simply because others say its the right thing to do and that it is PC and the forward way of thinking.
No one is asking you to marry someone the same sex as you are.

I find it morally repugnant for people to use religion as a reason they do wrong yet say it is ok because we all sin.

Do you not find it is morally repugnant to judge others, like you are doing with the gay people? Some may say that is morally repugnant wouldnt they.

But according to them it is ok because Jesus died for all their sins.

I find it amusing it is just the sins they choose it is ok to break and be forgiven for, over and over again.

Gay marriage isn't an extra right for gay people, it also means that straight people would be free to marry people of the same sex as well. Why does everyone hate more freedoms?

LOL

You would think everyone would get on that bandwagon seeings how people are continuously complaining about rights being taken away.

Hey, how about banning anyone from marrying again after getting a divorce. I kinda like that idea, that way once you squandered your right to marry why should you get a second chance, after all the bible says bad things about divorce too. OH wait its forgiven.

For people that believe in the Bible, judge not lest ye be judged. Personally, I think there is a whole lot more that deserves my time and attention in this world that what goes on in someone else's bedroom. As long as people treat me fair, right back at them. As far as it compromising someone else's morals, how is that? They are not asking YOU to marry gay. It isnt about you; it is about them. And therefore, no one else's business.
But wait--Let them have fun all they want to---that is between them and God. The problem is where will it stop. What the far left want (aka Gay Rights and others) is to get rid of religion. How can they do that. Well lets suppose the a Gay marriage act was upheld by the supreme court. WHo's going to marry them. The Churches, not the one I go to. The we have the ACLU come in and file a lawsuite. A Judge decides that the churches have to marry the gays. What happens then. If they refuse, they get fines until the church goes under and probably the congregation is held responsible as well. Then what? All church goers go under ground because if they were to establish a church then there would be a Gay couple wanting to get married in it immediately if for no other reason than to keep religion down.

With the exception of the gov. rules that married people get a slight benefit over singles, I would not have married my wife Legally. We did make our bond between us and God and that should be enough. The legal paper only shows the world we are married. A civil union tells the same thing but it does not get rid of religion.

We had better be careful, they will make criminals out of all of us.

I am a follower of Christ and I do not agree with homosexuality.. However, in America, this country was not founded on Christianity and we are not a Christian nation anymore than we are a Buddhist, Muslim, Jewish, Wiccan, Pagan, etc nation.. America was founded on the fact that all people have the right to be free from persecution of all types. We also have the right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.." America was not founded on religion but on freedom in general because, historically, the Patriots left England to escape religious persecution and other persecutions as well. Americans have the right to free press, free speech, privacy, the right to bear arms, and so on.. We can't dictate to someone else how to live because we don't agree with their way of living. We can voice our opinions but in the end that's all they are.. Opinions. We, as Americans, have no right to force our beliefs on another American and infringe on their right to the pursuit of happiness.
everybody be carefull, this one is a frickin' dem/lib for sure.

Considering the hetero divorce rate is over 50%, it isn't that "sacred" anymore. I don't care what they do as long as both are consenting adults and I don't have to hear about it.
Only if you add in the divorces of the people who have remarried and then divorced again. Also depends on the what race they are as to the divorce rate. dem/lib

This pretty much sums it up:
"One of my daughters was in the workplace one day, and her particular workplace at that moment in time, there were a whole bunch of conservative, older men. And those guys were talking about gay marriage. They were talking about discussions going on across the country. And my daughter Kate, after listening for about 20 minutes, said to them:ĎYou guys donít understand. Youíve already lost. My generation doesnít care.í I think I learned something from my daughter that day, when she said that. And I've talked with other people about it and thatís what I see, Senator McKinley. I see a bunch of people that merely want to profess their love for each other, and want state law to recognize that. Is that so wrong? I donít think thatís so wrong. As a matter of fact, last Friday night, I hugged my wife. You know Iíve been married for 37 years. I hugged my wife. I felt like our love was just a little more meaningful last Friday night because thousands of other Iowa citizens could hug each other and have the state recognize their love for each other. No, Senator McKinley, I will not co-sponsor a leadership bill with you."
-Iowa Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal, in blocking a Republican attempt to reverse the Iowa Supreme Courtís ruling legalizing gay marriage.
Your daughter is probably Godless too?
