Marriage is between a man and a woman, it says so in the Bible. Its that plain and simple.

Marriage was designed by God to be between a woman and a man, mainly in order to have children and replenish the earth

The bible says that jesus was without a wife..Right?
The bible says that John often sat beside Jesus with his head on Jesus' breast... Right?
John was the only deciple that followed Jesus to the cross... Right?

Jesus was a Jewish Rabbai and there was no such thing as Celibecy in the jewish religion... Right!

Jesus was gay!

It's in the bible to read for yourself, you don't have to believe me.

jesus never spoke of homosexuality as a sin.. right?

I rest me case, JESUS WAS GAY!!!

Just because you call yourself professor2020 doesn't mean you know what your saying...
Leviticus 20-13 if a man lies with mankind as he lieth with a woman, both of them have commited an abomination.....

what does the bible have anything to do with our government?!?!?! i am pretty sure in america we have freedom of religion, and not every religion persecutes homosexuality like christianity does. so to make gay marriage illegal because the bible says so would be forcing the rules of another religion on people who might not follow that religion. that would be unconstitutional and UNAMERICAN. so think about that you neonazi morons.

Ok, Really, listen...I am not forcing anything on anyone....I am just stating in what I believe, it is my freedom of religion and speech as well, correct? You may do as you please, like you said free country. But the fact that marriage is between a man and a woman is just that, a fact. Although it is only an opinion, I guess, when I say that your name calling really shows your maturity, darling.

Listen darling. Marriage that you're talking about in the bible wasn't done in the courthouses and didn't cost 30 bucks for the piece of paper to prove it. Marriage is pretty much a business decision these days. Me and my wife didn't have a Christian wedding, does that mean were not married? no. Were not having weddings in Jerusalem. You're ignorance to not let gays have rights is equal to that of the people who thought blacks shouldn't have rights. Shows your maturity. Respond when you have a more compelling argument than Jesus

I never said gay people shouldn't have rights. Why is it that some people get angry because everyone doesn't believe the same? I'm simply stating the way I believe. Nothing more, I'm not name calling like some. If your marriage was a business decision, does your wife know? Or did she do it for love? And to let you know, Jesus is not my argument, He is my reason.

"Nobama," marriage is man-made. Where in the bible does it state that any man ever gave any woman a ring and they exchanged vows? Moreover, having the freedom and the "right" to state what you believe, in this country, on a public forum, is also man-made; however, keep in mind that other people have the same freedom and "rights" as you, and therefore can state what they believe also.

So you started this whole topic just to quote something from the bible? I hardly believe that. This is a forum about gay marriage and you spout out about the bible. No I married my wife because I love her. But I didn't do it under Christianity so by the logic you are displaying our marriage doesn't count. This is a political forum, not a religious one. If this was forum was about the bible and what it says then you would have no argument here

Wtf...I never said, argued, or acted as if anyone else had no right to state their beliefs. By all means, you are, and I have no problem with that....really is the one who name called as
if my belief is less than another.
And yeah, this is about gay marriage, but I try to live MY life the way I believe, so in my case, I did indeed state something from the bible about it...and that's ok...I have not one time tried to push my belief on anyone else. So I don't actually understand why anyone is angry at me... oh well, that's ok too, good day all...

The bible has nothing to do with our government and laws. Separation of church and state, get it? Or do you need a lesson on that as well? Your bible also states that women shouldn't speak in church and that men shouldn't have long hair. Where's the picket signs for that?

God's instructions for buying slaves. 25:45-46

"Ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it." 26:16

God will "send wild beasts among you, which shall rob your of your children." 26:22

Leviticus was written by a bunch of old, horny, power hungry Levite priests.
