You really need to go back through the thread and see who I replied to. Anyway, you are making a point about religion and homosexual marriage, I have been making points about religion, marriage and homosexuality. I don't care if there has or ever WILL BE a religiously sanctioned homosexual relationship. I really don't care.

I do know that people who would condemn another person for the love they have deserves nothing but pity.

Christian Emperors who enforced a law that when two men are married they have to as equals with neither playing the roll of the submissive women or be burned alive.


This is distortion of what was this law about, it is not about "marriage" it is about prohibiting homosexuality. A first step from a permissive customs ( again not marriages) of pagan Rome towards intolerant Christian ethics.

You may find quotes like this




Martial, the first-century A.D. Roman poet, reports incidences of male-male marriage as kinds of perversions, but not uncommon perversions, speaking in one epigram (I.24) of a man who “played the bride yesterday.” In another (12.42) he says mockingly, “Bearded Callistratus gave himself in marriage to…Afer, in the manner in which a virgin usually gives herself in marriage to a male. The torches shone in front, the bridal veils covered his face, and wedding toasts were not absent, either. A dowry was also named. Does that not seem enough yet for you, Rome? Are you waiting for him to give birth?”

etc etc

But, please find me some legalese language of Roman marriage laws concerning "same sex marriage" There is nothing.

You know that just a month or so ago, "Pride parades" existed and homosexuals were not exactly hiding and beaten to death, yet something changed after Supreme Court legislation. And this something or similar to this never occurred before.

Congratulations!

You've just proved bigotry is also as old as time itself.

Big win for you!

It is not a bigotry, but inherent moral imperative. I can't change myself, "I have no choice"

Who cares? We don't live in Babylon. If the Babylonians wanted their rules followed in perpetuity, they shouldn't have been conquered by the Persians.

Duh.

That is the lamest and most selfish cop out I have ever heard


What you need to say is I WON'T change myself.

News flash for you princess;

Some of us i.e. ME and others too were born into very conservative and very religious households. We had NO CHOICE but to change our views on being gay, because it happened to US.

To you and all of those who espouse your views I say the below;

I don't agree with the laws but the gender articles are very clear.



I guess you can take any sentences from any texts then, out of their context and.... it's now BS.

Sorry but you did shoot in your own boat you know.

Now look there’s been many strange things in history:

I believe there’s a record of a man marrying a lamb or goat, sheep, and a dog here or there.

So a man marrying a man or a woman marrying a woman looks tame in comparison


I wonder what the code of Hammurabi would have to say about that.

Seriously?
It took 4000 years to fix this issue?
Perhaps even more parades are in order. That is a long long wrong.

Not sure you actually read my post? No..I am not advocating for a law that determines someones guilt or innocence by whether or not they sink or swim after they have leapt into a river.

This is virtually the same as the "She's a witch!" skit from Monty Python.

I'm sure in those days they had their fair share of shepherd love affairs. LOL After, all those dancing satyrs came from somewhere!

I never thought I would turn into a Swiftie but every time this song comes on in a store I'm the one grooving the aisles not caring if anyone is watching.

the most blatant admission possible that you are cherry picking

here the hint - the gender articles that you wish you use ARE part of the law you wish to ignore

ergo - cherry picking


its that simple

you cannot simply chose to demand that the gender articles of hammurabi`s code be accepted - and ignore the requirement for adulterers to be strangled
