artificial insemination is another poorly used practice. look at the octomom and john and kate plus 8. when these families cant afford to provide for their children the government has to pick up the slack but i guess thats ok for liberals since they wish everyone was on welfare, thats beside the point.

the truth is the american standard of morality has fallen very far.

gay marriage is wrong because being gay is a SEXUAL DEVIANCE. like being a pedophile being gay is an abnormal behavior. say what you will but its true, immorality is what has allowed society to accept it. all you see in the media is sex. everything is sex. and everything makes it seem that all sexual deviance is ok.

it's not. being gay serves NO practical or biological purpose. a gay family cannot procreate because its not physically possible so whats the point of having a family? isnt it to raise a child? i know some hetero couples cant procreate do to some medical reason but i think we can assume that is a different issue and irrelevant.

gay men have colons that fall out, they get enemas so they dont see poop while doing what they do. thats not natural.

in a marriage between gays it is much more difficult for a child to learn their gender roles. it is easy to confuse a child through improper models, they mimic what they see.

Furthermore, for those who argue that homosexuality will cause our species to become extinct, I don't think everyone will become gay just because it is legal. Even if everyone was gay, we can artificially inseminate eggs pretty easily.

"Weeee. We have a winner.

Christians cant even agree what is the most basic of docterine and you have the nerve to call me close minded?

Jebus died on the cross for us is the most basic belief? Really? So what about God (being the one true god as you belive)? That must be part of the equasions because you cant have one without the other?

There isnt just 1 rule and you know it! You have a preset bunch of beliefs that allow you to fall into the christian catagory. "

christ clearly stated that our christian beliefs/moral duties consist of 2 simple directions:
1. love God above all else
2.love thy neighbor as you love yourself

it sounds vague but if you think about it, if you love God above all things you would not do something to anger/hurt him. and if you loved your neighbor (neighbor = everyone around you, everyone in general) you wouldnt do anything to hurt them aswell.

It seems as if the only problems people have with gay marriage stems from religious belief.

I think this says a lot about religion.

Marriage is part of the legal system, not just a religious right anymore. Saying two men or two women cannot get married is like saying they are not equal to a heterosexual couple under the law, essentially removing rights from gay people.

I think gay marriage is okay as long as it is a legal agreement and not a religious one. Churches are not required to wed anyone they do not want to anyways.

Changing your mind isn't comparable adapting to modern times. It will be legal someday even in your redneck state. Nobodies asking you to like it they're telling you to deal with it. And you will.

Because of hetrosexual's, the world is now over populated, we are literally killing of world wuth the weight to numbers.

Hetrosexual's are EVIL. Being gay will save the planet.

Plus, how does being gay and getting married hurt anyone.

I created this account just so I could comment on this real quick; gay marriage is an issue i feel really strongly about.
Not allowing same-sex marriage is just a modern day form of discrimination that is absolutely repulsive; it harkens back to the eras of racism and sexism, and is something I hope we're ashamed of when we look back 50 years from now.
This debate should have nothing to do with religion. As soon as you start to base laws on what you believe your religion teaches (although I'm pretty sure same sex marriage isn't actually mentioned in the bible) you start to violate our "freedom of religion" right (1st amendment).
If you're are the kind of person who enjoys discrimination, hate, injustice, and infringing on peoples constitutional rights, then go ahead and oppose gay marriage. But that is incredibly closed-minded though, and I feel sorry for your ignorance.
If you must get religious then I respond to you "love thy neighbor"
That is all,

vv "It's just that when I saw all the hatred certain people were spewing towards Christians, I felt I needed to take a stand. I would have done the same for any religion."

Supersmash, I hear you. We're kindred spirits in that regard. And not all of us are spewing bile against Christians in general (glares at Madest).

At a poor attempt to get back on topic, my statement is very similar to yours and goes like this:

"It's just that when I saw all the hatred certain people were spewing towards homosexuality, I felt I needed to take a stand. I would have done the same for any minority group."

I never took a side, I was only stating that both sides are being hypocritical in at least some fashion.

Here's the truth guys: I was raised Christian, but for a long time I have had strong doubts about the whole God and Jesus thing. It's just that when I saw all the hatred certain people were spewing towards Christians, I felt I needed to take a stand. I would have done the same for any religion. I would have defended Athiests if they were the ones getting kicked around. But, you guys have defeated me. Your bigotry and cynicism has crushed my spirit and makes me sad for anyone who wishes to follow a religion.

Luckily though, most religious people have strong convictions that cannot be swayed by playground style bullying aimed at them by those who wish to break them down.

"As for you ShadowSeraph! I'm 34, you are 22. You'd be suprised what I have read. Dont even go there!"

I apologize, I didn't mean to be insulting. However, you're assuming that I don't know what I'm talking about, when I'm practically quoting Christian theology.

--

And as far as Ghandi goes, I don't know where he is. If he achieved the impossible and lived up to God's standard of absolute perfection then he very well may be in Heaven. I don't think that's very likely though, and it would be unfair to the masses to lower the standard just because he was a good person. The punishment for sin is death. It's not a scale system. Saying that you should get into Heaven for your good deeds is like saying that God has to abide by your rules because you think that's the way it should be, thereby making yourself equal to God. It doesn't work that way.

I'm not reading this thing, but I find it ironic that gays aren't allowed to be married because people want to keep it 'sacred'. Yet we have shows like the Bachelor(ette), 'Married by America' (where those participating have never met, the viewers vote and the couple has to get married), Britney Spears and her oops-lol-55-hour marriage and divorce rate well beyond 60%.

So... tell me how gays will make it worse?

Most of you people claiming to be "Christian" probably gave up drinking/promiscuous sex/drug use for Lent and have no idea what your religion stands for or where it came from.

Word to the wise: Think for yourself on this matter. I'll bet that there are lots of things that you do on a regular basis that are against your "religion", but as soon as someone's lifestyle comes up, God forbid (no pun intended) they go against the Bible. If every sin is created equal, that cigarette you just smoked or that cross tattoo tramp stamp you just got is just as bad as the same sex marriage that you're SOOO against.

Goooo Atheism!

Maddog, get over yourself. That is wrong, wrong, wrong. You do not have to prescribe to any set of beliefs to be Christian.
----------------------------------------------------

W T F? Yes you do! How the hell do you differentiate from every other religion then?

"I don't think there's a hell, you just die"

Not a very christian thing to say!

As for you ShadowSeraph! I'm 34, you are 22. You'd be suprised what I have read. Dont even go there!

vv Supersmash, you're a very atypical Christian. Surely the central tenet of Christianity is summed up in John 14:6-

"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

You already said that you "believe that there is only one God that all religions share and that I've simply chosen Jesus as my personal path". The idea that all the Muslims, Hindus, Jews, traditional Chinese animists, pagans, Shintoists, Zoroastrians etc are all getting into heaven is not a representative Christian view.

Madest, thanks for bringing up one of the oldest arguments out there. Did you get that one of Family Guy? Because I thought it was pretty funny when I saw it on there.

You must remember that when you say things like that you are putting down all people who believe in an afterlife, not just Christians.

If Jesus never existed and the Bible is a bunch of bull, exactly what happened 2000 years ago? A lunatic who fooled the masses? Mass propaganda? This is not to debate, I'd just like to hear some ideas. I'm curious.

Don't ask me. No one can answer that question. But, I seriously doubt it becasue he didn't actively reject God. I don't really believe in hell anyway. And please don't tell me that I must in order to be Christian.

But, that question brings up a good point and it's one that simply cannot be answered. If you want to go to heaven and you do the right things, I would hope you would make it. If you don't believe in heaven and expect just to die and that's it, then not making it wouldn't be too bad. So, I don't think there's a hell, you just die.
