The Ignorance on Display in this thread is breath taking.
Seriously, could you be any more HATE filled and INTOLLERANT towards a group of people??
Many of you Guys are blind Hypocrites. You really want to wage War Via the Government on Religion?
How naive can you get? Do you have any idea how much blood has been shed specifically to protect people in this country from this sort of
The Government should not be the tool of Choice by any group of americans (religious or not) to force other people toward any action or belief. It
should exist solely to prevent people from being Trampled on. And if you think that Homosexuals are being trampled on in American Society, your
insane. Sure they can face some social prejudices.. But then what would you call the nature of this thread towards Christians??
Homesexuals are Free to do WHATEVER they want. Nobody is stopping them from having a ceremony and calling their relationship a marriage.
They do not however have a right to Highjack marraige as Defined within the Christian Church and in fact even if they use the word, it is impossible
for them to mimic it. The Church recognizes a Union of the Flesh between a Man and a Woman as the Seal of a Covenant before our Creator God. It is
Physically Impossible for two men or two women to mimic this Seal as it was designed by our Creator. Sure they can engage in a perversion of the
Seal.. but it is not the same and cannot be used as a substitute.
Thus without the combination of a Vow spoken before God and any number of Witness', used to establish the terms of the Covenant being entered into,
and then a Physical Union in the Flesh(between a man and a woman) as a Seal of that Covenant. You in fact cannot have a Marriage before God.
As far as the Human Law is concerned. I Personally don't think either state nor ferderal governments should have anything to do with it. Homosexuals
should be allowed to run around and call their relationships whatever they want. They aren't fooling christians and they certainly arn't fooling God.
The ROOT problem here is that the Government has any Role in this issue at all. They shouldn't be involved in recognizing any Personal relationships
through the tax code or otherwise. People should be able to Claim their Partners as Dependants on Tax returns disregardless of the nature of the
union and Everyone should have exactly the same rights before the States or legally for that matter.
There have actually been lawsuits filed, trying to sue Churchs to force them to preform a Marriage cermony for a homosexual Couple. This is Madness
and cannot be allowed.
Christians who are trying to use Government and the Laws of the land to push an agenda on this issue are just as misguided. HOWEVER, I can see where
they are coming from. They feel like if they don't push back that the Homosexual Agenda will just keep pushing and pushing for more absurd "rights"
just like the example above of a church being Sued and forced to render services. So they are trying to gain protection through the same avenue that
the Homosexuals are trying to push their agenda. Both avenues are a mistake... but hey, since when does our Government serve its original purpose for
So in the end both groups are left trying to navigate a Social issue with the Power of the Government and the Courts looming large over the discussion
I say Change the Government and the tax system and let everyone live their lives however they want.
Then again what do I know... I'm just another one of those Insane, Radical, sub human, no Good Christians who is keeping all you perfect people from
having your Paradise on Earth.
