I believe people should mind their own business. God will judge all of us. I will mind my house and you mind yours.
I've been married 20+ years.

I have the right to get married to the one I love. Why can't I live happy? But it's totally ok to cheat on your heterosexual spouse... Thanks Law and Order.

I oppose it but you can't control what people do. They will be judged when it's all said and done.

Actually you can control what people are allowed to do.

Washingon has the referendum process available to its citizens. Before the law just passed by the legislature even takes effect it will have to survive a public vote. I encourage every voter in the State of Washington to get out and make themselves heard.

Then, after you strike this law off the books, turn your attention to the legislators that enacted it and boot their sorry asses out of office!

Marriage is a civil contract between two parties. Being a contract it is gender neutral.. party of the first part party of the second... end story

Love is all the reason one person needs to marry the person that loves them too.

Marriage is, at is most basic, a union of two people who wish to spend the rest of their lives together and acknoledge that union with a legal contract that, in the USA, provides certain legal benifits.
As a minister I see no reason to descriminate against the love of two partners that happen to share the same gender.
It would be against the very nature of love to keep same gender couples from getting married.
just an observation

If you are a minister... how do you match up your belief in ssm with the Bibles stance on homsexuality

Observer,
The Bible takes no stance against homosexuality. It was common at the time for the man of the house to have a young male slave to take the place of the woman when she was "unclean" (on her period). The commonly quoted site is Lev. 20:13 that states, "If a man also lie with a man as he lieth with a woman both of them have committed an abomination..."

But if you properly translate the Latin text it says, "if a man allows another man to have sex with his woman they make an abomination..."

Meaning that a child born may not be the offspring of the husband. This poorly transliterated passage was done when the Latin text was re-written to become the Old English Text. The word "as" has the same meaning as the word "while" but the latin words cannot be interchanged so easily. You should not drink as you drive... One must think as they type. Lie with a man as you lie with a woman.

It is a shame that so many who propose to follow Jesus Christ forget that he taught love was the most important of all the commandments. Between two people who love each other there is nothing better than marriage.

Other passages are used as well but they are talking about the use of street prostitutes and not someone you love. The term used is similar to "unnatural love" meaning lust or physical gratification without love.

I would hope that the spirit would guide you in love and acceptance when you next read the Bible looking for a way to spread the love of Christ with others.
