Thanks!
It's absolutely true. Look at the history of ANY Religion, not just Christianity - it started out fine, offering answers to questions the people had, but then it would grow and the clergy would start to gain more and more power. Then it would be less about helping people understand their world and more about keeping that power.
When did you get in my head? That's exactly the way I feel. It's become all about power.

It's not me in your head - it's fact. We're all slowly starting to wake up to the facts about Organized Religion and the inherent evil in the system.
Now go forth and educate!!!!

You know, I just re-read this and while I realize trying to show you where your definition of Marriage is incorrect is not something I want to get into right now, I would like to cover something that I missed before:
You state one of the purposes of Marriage is to reproduce the family name. THIS is not a religious process (at least not so much anymore) but a LEGAL one. There are Heterosexual couples who cannot have children that have "reproduced the family name" through adoption. They did not "bear a child of their own union", but legally adopted a child and legally granted that child their name.
So this idea that SSM would not allow a couple to carry on (or reproduce, as you put it. Trust me, I'm very aware of your choice of words here, you're not as clever as you think you are) the "Family Name" is ludicrous. The practice of adoption has seen to that.

also in leviticus it clearly states that a man shall not lay with another man the way he lays with woman. now , either you believe in god and the bible or you just make up what is comfortable and convenient for you.
Your an ass hole the bible is a peice of shit that was created by a phyco bastard, I haven't been to chucrch in 3 years because the preist called my mom a slut and told us to never come back because she has 4 kids. Im GAY to a degree because I just feel that way because I WOULD like the oposite sex but where i live everyone is too concerned about fucking ( im 13) that i want to stay single for years. You people have no idea of the past nor that it exists, im agnostic and my best friend was murdered by her dad when we were seven. Suck on that for awhile because her dad raped her twice.

i dont believe it could ever be recognized in the same manner as a man and a woman . and especially in a church , that would be blasphemy.

I won't argue with you about being recognized by the Church, because it's really up to the Church what they want to recognize. But I don't see why it wouldn't be recognized in a legal way. At one time, people of different races couldn't legally marry either.

Don't like gay marriage? Don't get one. Stop adhering to archaic standards that do nothing but infringe on the rights of your fellow citizens.

Just being a Homosexual doesn't make you at higher risk for STDs, there has to be another element that puts someone at a higher risk: high number of sexual partners, engaging in sexual activities without the use of a condom, engaging in unprotected sex with intravaneous drug users, etc. And these behaviors apply to both Heterosexuals as well as Homosexuals.

I am 16 and proud of being Gay, and I believe I am pretty educated for my age. I want to correct the people that say "Marriage is between a Man and a Woman," because it says that in the bible(it's a lie). But, I do recall that the bible states that a Man should have many Wives, and I don't see that tradition at all. So just let us be and love who we want. We are not bothering anyone. Everyone else if someone tries to bring you down, just remember they only want to bring you down because they think you are better than them and want you to feel bad to make them feel etter than you. The people that disagree with Gay Marriage, just know I respect what you have to say and I am glad you state your opinion.

24 Wherefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves:

25 for that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile passions: for their women changed 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 unseemliness, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was due.

28 And even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up unto a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 backbiters, hateful to God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, unmerciful:

32 who, knowing the ordinance of God, that they that practise such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also consent with them that practise them.

I thought this country was founded because we were ESCAPING religious persecution? I though we had freedom of religion? Why should someone religion DICTATE who someone spends the rest of their life with. Furthermore, if you want to deny gay couples the state Marriage (not holy matrimony- because that is a church marriage) then you should not charge gay couples the same taxes. Since gay people DO IN FACT have less rights, then they should not pay as much as their heterosexual counterparts. And lets be honest here. Gay couples DO INFACT make more money, and have more money to spend.. So you would be shooting yourself in the foot. Don't force your religious beliefs on others. Just like you wouldn't want ANOTHER persons religious beliefs shoved down your throat. And a persons path in life is between them and THEIR God. NOT Yours. its pretty arrogant and self-centered to think everyone should share the same belief system as you. Makes you no better than the Westboro Baptist Church! Radical Christianity is just as dangerous as Radical Muslims!
