I am not sure on this but I've been needing this answered...
Doesn't the concept of marraige/union have its origin in the Bible?
If so why do the homosexuals fight against the Bible with one hand and with the other seek to apply its concepts to their life style?
Am I missing something here?

So much hate in one thread...and most of it coming from a religion of love...
Sad state of affairs.
Kudos and a star to dizzydame for having an open mind and not judging others based on her religion.
For the record, I'm not gay but have no issues with it.

You forgot to mention John 8:7, Let he that is without sin cast the first stone.

Oh, and about the "god thing", I tend to know more about the bible and god than most christians I talk with. Because for one I have read it several times. Secondly I was a believer at one time. Then I grew up and discovered that critical thinking is healthier than blind belief, bigotry, auto-flagellation and hatred. I don't think faith is pre-requiste for analysing a book, whomever the author is supposed to be.

With four helicopters flying overhead, we had no idea what to expect early this evening at Market and Seventh Street, at least in terms of turnout, regarding tonight's Prop. 8 protest.
It was huge. Massive.
Although SFGate (via AP) reports a scant 1,000 protesters, we can safely say that that number is false. People who showed up to protest the passing of prop. 8 -- gay, straight, tranny, black, Latino, Mormon, rich, poor, Christian, white, atheist, even a couple of furries -- were there in numbers that reached the thousands.
As of 8:15 p.m., we're hearing a number of around 25,000 people, at least according to KPIX. PinkNews reports 15,000+.
There is little doubt that the passage of prop 8 has brought out the abominations of mankind into the streets demanding to "know the strangers" and they did in Lots time just before fire rained down from God.....
Homosexuals demanding to be "accepted" as normal humans..........
Much of the damage to homes and a small Christian college occurred overnight Thursday, but several more homes burned Friday in Montecito, a quaint area that has attracted celebrities such as Rob Lowe, Jeff Bridges, Michael Douglas and Oprah Winfrey. More than 1,000 firefighters worked to contain the blaze.
"It's not a time to relax," Santa Barbara County Deputy Fire Chief Tom Franklin said late Friday. "Everybody's got to be diligent through tonight."
Franklin said up to 200 homes may have burned in the area and asked for patience as crews tried to catalog the devastation in hilly areas accessible only by winding roads.
These fires are a warning from God to the righteous people of california to flee before the destruction of BOTH cities of sin.
Is it only a coincidence than these fire, the worst ever seen,have "popped" up just days after the abominations of God took to the streets?
The wrath of the Lord God will soon rain destruction of those who basphem his name demanding to corrupt "holy" marriage of a man and woman.
Repent or DIE...........

The question that is debated is this: Is God condemning the people because they were homosexual or because they were cruel, selfish and showed no mercy or compassion to others? Ezekiel 16:49-50 answers many of these questions when he states: "Behold, this was the inequity of your sister Sodom: pride, overabundance of food (in Hebrew this phrase literally means eating to the point of retching...), prosperous ease, and idleness were hers and her daughters; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abominable offenses before Me."
In other words they were evil and self-centered people who totally ignored God and thought nothing of attacking, raping and killing people. Here is where the interpretations begin to differ. One side believes the sin of the Sodomites was the method of rape they intended to inflict upon the angels (i.e. the act of sodomy), while the other side believes the fact that the Sodomites wanted to attack and harm the strangers at all demonstrated the evil nature of these people and their complete abandonment of the law of Love. In other words it wasn’t the method of rape that was important - but the fact that the Sodomites wanted to rape and kill them at all that is truly the issue!
