The 'queering agenda' at least is finally put on the shelf away from the winds of influence.
This at least should put the whole thing in the closet where it belongs.
I don't like nor hate the whole gay thing.
And you can't tell me the sodomite acts they indulge in in any way normal, that's why they get the whole stigma and controversy.
You really are a total nut case thinking what you do about Homosexuals. Your opinions I find are both beyond ignorant and therefore hateful (based on your ignorance).
I hope one day if you ever have children that they are gay, I pray In the name of Jesus this happens to you - and I mean it! You are a disgrace in the sight and presence of God.
You can't pray it away! I did that myself for years, and I was once VERY devout, and it has done untold damage to myself and my relationships. One of the men that was involved in this I have to say was (and still is) is an excellent Bible Scholar, but is now a transsexual.
Welcome to reality...

Learn to ignore them, for God's sake; or just tell them to shut up, and then go back to what you were doing. Gays are not the only people who Christians accuse of being Satanic, or claim are going to Hell.

Marriage is not a human right. The pursuit of happiness certainly is.
Some other goals for marriage have been: for political gain, monetary gain, and property gain. And those were all heterosexual marriages. Something to be proud of, no?
There are many marriages that do not create families. Do you want to ban all marriages, including heterosexual ones, that do not involve procreation? Can you not have harmony and cooperation between families and communities with gay marriages as well?
Well, how sanctimonious of you. If a church is willing to marry two gays in a ceremony and pronounce them married in the eyes of God (and there ARE churches who are happy to do this), who are you to tell them they can't call it a marriage?
Why aren't the religious right up in arms about atheists (or pagans or wiccans or satanists) being able to get a marriage license and call their union a marriage, as they have been able to do since marriage licenses have been around? These guys are about as anti-sacred as you can get, right? But I hear no uproar about this.
Why are you so fanatical about having their union be called something else? How does it affect you or your marriage in any way? How does it hurt you? Is your marriage not strong enough to handle gays calling their union a marriage? Why should gays call their union something other than marriage, when there are churches who will pronounce them married in the eyes of God?

You are misunderstanding me. I did not make my post to claim some sort of sanctimonious superiority as you seem to think. I created it to illustrate the point that the majority of gay marriage advocates simply refuse to compromise on the term marriage.

As a young adult, attention seeking behaviour is actually quite normal, especially when going through puberty, and is not just the reserve of the Homosexual community.
That is why homosexuals are more vocal about their sexuality whenever they come out.
sexuality doesn't just suddenly develop at puberty.
As for wishing gay children on a Christian is not hateful (yes I was angry), but also a very real desire for this to happen, so that you might open your eyes and heart to the fact that most homosexuals have parents, and its sometimes difficult for all involved, and should this ever happen to you, believe me all the CBT in the world can't change sexuality - I've been there and done it - living proof, as have many others.
How many times have you prayed against homosexuals or perhaps gone to demonstrations? Isn't that hate?
that is both being a and a condescending human being and a double standard.
As for "Thus, it is still my belief that most homosexual relationships are a disservice to both parties involved, as they could be in a much better relationship with an appropriate member of the opposite sex", again is massively condescending. I can but imagine how you would feel if the opposite of that was said to you!
which is exactly what you have done.
How can you expect to be taken seriously, when in essence you are simply being condescending in your tone, with veiled attacks, without any real factual experience?
If you were gay, you would certainly NOT find being gay a disservice!
If I said the same about heterosexual relationships, we both know what your answer would be.
