@lawndartsftw: My dad is Roman Catholic. And divorced. And remarried. To someone else who divorced her husband.

So... yeah.

@HiEv. The Catholics are fairly strict regarding divorce, if I`m not mistaken....

Ah! Thanks @HiEv and @Angilion!
You know, I`ve quarreled with both of you before, but I consider you to be nice guys! I`m glad the interwebs have made it possible for distant peoples to come together.
Mushy = me!

Back to the topic at hand:
YES! I for one believe Jesus was married, probably to Mary but possibly to Martha, and John 11 is one of the reasons why.
IF MARY (and Martha) were sitting shiva (performing the death rituals) for Lazarus, they`d be forbidden to leave the house, yet Martha goes out to greet Jesus?
The ONLY person a woman sitting shiva can go out to greet is her father OR her husband.
#2: There was a Nazarine Ritual (Jesus of Nazareth, remember?) whereby a person was "dead and buried" and a "holy man" would "ressurect him" after 3 days (apx).
Really, I don`t make this stuff up!
Many of Jesus`s "miracles" have common sense explainations.

The funny thing is, that Jesus had very definite things to say about divorce. According to Mark 10:11-12 Jesus said, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." (Also Matthew 5:31-32.)

Funny how Christians are willing to overlook the words of Jesus in that case though, eh?

@LillianDulci: Regarding the shellfish and Jesus thing, in Mark 7:18-19 and Matthew 15:10-11 Jesus declares that food will not make you unclean.

@5Cats: The one Jesus loved appears to be Lazarus. See John 11:3 and 11:36. (This gets even more homoerotic if you read the version of Lazarus` resurrection in the Secret Gospel of Mark, which may be the basis for John`s account.)

Forgive me for paraphrasing from the Gospel, I too have had a long day, but, as I recall, Jesus spoke to the issue of marriage in the manner of "A man shall leave his parents, and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh". Man joins woman = marriage, and this union takes precedence over previous family allegiances. In regards to same-sex marriage, well, its like the cartoon, right ?? Nothing in the New Testament ascribed to Jesus...

@LillianDulci: I seem to recall that Jesus said all foods were OK now, but am too tired to look it up. It`s iirc.

For Jews of that era, there were Laws (Don`t murder people!) and `rules` (don`t eat pork!). The arguement goes:

"Jesus changed the rules, but you still have to follow God`s laws".
SO: Animal sacrifice? A rule that Jesus amended.
No gay sex? A Law we still have to obey.

(not saying I believe this, it`s what some people believe! Not me!)

"but it also should be kept in mind that neither did he say anything for it either, so as not to give weight to one side or another. "

In the OT, eating shellfish was called an abomination. As far as I know, Jesus did not say anything about shellfish being an abomination or not, and yet Christian`s will say that shellfish rule was wiped out by Jesus. But when the same thing happens to being gay (condemned in OT, then not mentioned by Jesus at all) people still act like it`s wrong.

@SapphireHeart: Actually Paul came after the Ressurection, eh? He `met Jesus on the road` and turned from persicuting Christians to being one... except a lot of people at the time thought he was full of poo...

John 13:21-28
Read this! And tell me Jesus doesn`t SEEM a little bit gay in the Bible?

This is true, but it also should be kept in mind that neither did he say anything for it either, so as not to give weight to one side or another.

Jesus said "Love one another, as i have loved you", and a good example of him is in John 7:53-8:11

Just to clarify I think the general consensus is that Paul (good friend and follower of Jesus wrote it as part of a letter).

This is funny. To clarify to Christians and non Christians alike I don`t know of Jesus ever condemning being gay. However one passage that, for lack of a better word "condemns" the acts of homosexuality (note that it doesn`t condemc being gay itself, just acting on it) is: Romans 1 v26-27 (or for the whole section 20-30). No it wasn`t Jesus who said it, but it`s in the bible. Now can we stop arguing about it?

Soooo much to say on this topic. But it is a complete waist of time to convice anyone of faith that they may be wrong. They don`t need proof to believe what they believe. Keep fightin the good fight Gerry10f1...but like I said, the religous fools (organized religon, that is)have their mind made up, and for some reason they feel the need to make everyone follow and believe the same.

Red herring. The point of contention is that Jesus HIMSELF didn`t say anything about it. That there are passages in the Bible condemning it are irrelevant unless they are the explicit words of Jesus.

evanbartlett - technically you are correct about religion and law. But the reality is the religious conservatives relable their faith as a some other platform. Example, they can`t teach the Bible`s creationism in public schools so they invented "Intelligent Design" which is the same damn thing.

The only arguement they have agains gay marriage is faith-based so they have to label it `morality` and `tradition` but it`s still their religioius ideologies with a differant wrapper.

Why should it matter what a religion has to say on a subjuct UNLESS you are a member of that religion.

Churches should not be forced to recognize any marriage, heck the Catholic church does not recognize divorce unless they annul it themselves and that is their right, but it is every citizens right to keep religious belief out of gov`t.

@5cats: I`m not sure political parties would want to open that can of worms. Churches can be quite political and their supporters are vehement. I don`t think a church should be forced to marry a gay couple, that`s just meddlesome. But I also think that a government employee has to follow the rules, even if their views contradict the law or rules of the institution. I`m not too happy about what`s going on with the institution I work for, but I still have to do what they tell me to.

I`m still trying to wrap my mind around why people care whether or not homosexuality is forbidden or ignored or encouraged by the bible in the context of public discourse. Religious argumentation has no bearing in the American court system. All such arguments have long been found to be unmeritorious. It is for this reason that arguments favoring Prop 8 in the courtroom have not included `because it says so in the bible.` The furthest the issue can go is impacting personal choices on behavior and how to guide moral lessons in the home.

Arguments such as `but we`re a Christian nation!` hold sway on soapboxes and internet forums, but not in courtrooms.

I couldn`t find these cases you`re referring to, but remember that any idiot can sue someone, but the law is quite clear on the matter and if a gay couple is suing a church it likely will and should be thrown out.

No, it`s not. Those were men - falible. The point is that the topic is of such little importance that Jesus never mentioned it. He spoke about the importance of kindness and charity. And he spoke on hypocracy and fait. But the fact he ignored it implies the importance of it.

It`s time christians realised the rules of your religion only apply to you, not to everyone. I am sure you would not want some muslim cleric telling your women what they can and cannot do. Well no one wants you up in their business either.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. I`ve never heard of that. Up here in Canada where gay marriage is legal it`s a church`s discretion whether they want to marry someone or not.

if you consider that Jesus and God are the same entity, then technically anything written in the old testament is also Jesus` words.

and if you take that God wrote the bible, then Jesus said, "you shant lay with another man" (paraphrase)

That is propaganda. No one is forcing churches to marry same sex couples. Many churches don`t do interfaith marriages even though a jewish/christian marriage is legal. And no one is requiring those churches to do so.

When hiperbole is used, it usually means the group using it doesn`t have a case to argue so they go for an emotional response, rather than a thinking one.

Gerry1of1, it`s our business when homosexual couples are trying to force the government into making churches marry them when it is clearly against our religious teachings.

Jesus never said anything about homosexuality, true. He also never said a lot about things in the Old Testament because he was a Jew, and already followed the Jewish laws and customs. It was understood at that point. He only came to establish a new covenant between God and his church.

@Gerry1of1 : read John 3:34; Jesus may not have spoken this himself, but prophets did, and it is the same; Jesus did not say anything against this teaching, therefore it is in effect regardless who taught it.
