I'm glad that you've been married to your wife for 20 years now Vor. Marriage between a man and woman and raising kids the right way are the fabric of a strong society.



Rev, I truly am a believer in and advocate of marriage and raising kids the right way. You and I disagree on gay marriage. I was raised a Christian but, to be honest, I don't presume to be the most competent when it comes to arguing scripture. But my faith and belief assures me that I'm on the right path. I've never posted anything like this before, but it seemed appropriate.

I'm ready for the gays to start marrying so that the real fun can begin once they start getting divorces.

Who will the family courts choose to screw over when both people in court have dicks?

In hetero divorce, both people in court have attorneys too.

This is probably the best argument I've heard in support of gays being allowed to marry from a Christian:

quote:

The bible makes it abundantly clear in the old and new testament that homosexuality is wrong, but if they outlawed gay marriage because it's biblically wrong, they would have to outlaw any marriage that isn't godly (which is pretty nearly every marriage in this clearly non- christian nation).


The real threat to marriage is not gays but self individuals who get married and remain selfish.

I'll add something else Toddy. The way I follow God's word, or trip up on it does nothing to diminish its truthfulness. No more than If a beginning violin student would destroy a beautifully written classical piece by Mozart.



Well, I'm truly sorry your wife dumped you after all those years. I truly am. But I still stand by my comment that you don't have any right picking parts of the Bible to condemn me when you obviously aren't following what it says either. And, sorry I don't care about your excuses.

It's not excuses, it's what is. Perhaps you don't know this, but there is one justified reason to allow divorce given in the bible, and that is for adultery. Adultery nullifies the marriage contract, and since my ex committed it, I am clean in God's eyes concerning this matter.
And as far as picking parts of the bible to use and ignoring others, that would be irrelevant even if true. Homosexuality isn't wrong because I say it is, God's word makes it abundantly clear that its wrong and that wouldn't change whether I believed it or not. Perhaps your problem isn't with me, but God?
And believe me, I'll have to answer before him one day for the things I've done, and so will you. And on that day, God won't be concerned about what guys like me told you, but about what you, Toddy, did.

It places anti-Catholicism blatantly into American law.

If we operated by this premiss, there could be no laws at all about anything. Because every law on the books has been broken by someone and will be broken in the future. Operating by this logic would allow for total anarchy only.
Plus, same sex marriage is not being outlawed. Something has to be ratified before it can be outlawed. This is like the people that say I'm trying to push my morals on gays. That's not possible because since our countries inception there has only been one form of marriage recognized by the gov., one man with one woman. So it is gays trying to force their morality on everyone else.

Why are we discussing the laws of this nation and the bible?

re: What is the "conservative" obsession with gay marriage?


In America it is not better; even in our own Massachusetts, which I believe, upon the whole, is as temperate and moderate in religious zeal as most of the States, a law was made in the latter end of the last century, repealing the cruel punishments of the former laws, but substituting fine and imprisonment upon all those blasphemers upon any book of the Old Testament or New. Now, what free inquiry, when a writer must surely encounter the risk of fine or imprisonment for adducing any argument for investigating into the divine authority of those books? Who would run the risk of translating Dupuis? But I cannot enlarge upon this subject, though I have it much at heart. I think such laws a great embarrassment, great obstructions to the improvement of the human mind. Books that cannot bear examination, certainly ought not to be established as divine inspiration by penal laws. -John Adams

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the freedom of press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.- The Constitution of the United States of America.

Man thanks for posting this, I've never read this before the establishment clause thingy!
I guess that's why Washington D.C.'s monuments are replete with Christian symbols because the founding fathers interpreted the establishment clause like modern day liberals?

There are also pagan symbols in the Capitol, I don't see what that has to do with the laws governing the country.

Correct, we shouldn't be using religious views to make law or policy in the United States of America.

You don't like gay marriage, don't participate.

Don't murder
Don't steal
Don't bear false witness
Don't covet your Neighbors wife or stuff.


So we should abolish these things because they have a religious origin?
