and also marrying man and man or woman and woman. This could be the abomination of desolation the bible has spoken about. the descration of God's
holy places can;t be allowed to continue. And I brelieve as the bible says it's an abomination for mankind to lie with mankind..
Religion is different than government in this country. It's why the constitution and bill of rights were written. You have the right to believe
whatever foul hate-filled nonsense you want, but you don't have the right to use your religion as law.
If some citizens have a certain right and get benefits from having that right that others do not get, that is unconstitutional. That's why black
people and women were given the right to vote. Marriage is technically a religious ceremony. Some religions permit and even celebrate same-sex
marriages. The government conferrs benefits on married couples via tax breaks and legal conveniences. If some citizens are prevented from having those
government-conferred benefits, then all citizens should be. And vice versa. You can't have it both ways. Either you uphold the constitution, or like
Bush & Co, you don't.
And also, "god is love", "love thy neighbor as yourself", and so on. If you want to pick and choose which bible verses you enforce, does that mean
you can't eat pork and you can
rape and sell women into slavery?? That's in the bible too, in the old testament with the 10 commandments.
You'd better sort that crap out before you try to govern this country with your book of hate.
