If you are against Gay marriage, would you reconsider if it were called something else?
Culturally for me marriage has been defined as being between a man and a woman. But if it had as strong a name (ie: Commitment) I think less people would oppose it. Legally I do not agree with any type of discrimination. People who live together for say 10 years or more, build a life, buy a home, cars, build a family and more should not have it taken away because we don't recognize their relationships. I feel that way about straight and gay partnerships. Health & life insurance are another discrimination.
No, for me it is a biblical issue, so the name isn't important to me.
Lucky the US is not a religious dictatorship
Far worse than a religious dictatorship is a godless dictatorship.
C J do you wanna come round to mine with your baseball bat and do some fag bashing on me. I'll sit and clutch the cross and pray for gods mercy as you leather me. !! HA Ha.
The union of two souls in ceremony in which god our father blesses a relationship that is of pure love.
Do you mean the union of two souls (male and female)?
No I am not talking about male and female. I have known gay couples who are committed to one another. If the relationship is one of pure love then why shouldn't it be solemnised in church. ?
Since when does God our Father bless homosexual unions? How can they be of pure love, when they are full of sin? God is LOVE and there is no darkness found in Him, so why would He endorse such a relationship, especially after He has condemned it?
C J Sledghammer I'm not going to comment on your comments. I personally find your comments offensive. True love between two women or two men is never a sin. God loves all and condemns nobody. The rest is you inability to accept gay lovers as blessed
Personally...I don't give a damn if you find my opinion offensive. My personal position on this subject is bolstered by God's Holy word, not your delicate sensitivities. As it is, I find your lack of moral character and moral judgement appauling.
Sledge hammer its not for you alone to decide. Also aren't you now verging on breaching laws and rules here. The rest of planet go over gays and gay marriage 30 years ago or more. .
Brother and sister, father and daughter, son and mother are other examples of forbidden sexual unions...regardless of how long they have been living together or how much they "love" each other. Homosexual relationships are no different. They all are forbidden by God's Holy Word, they all are discriminated against by nature, and they all are unhealthy sexual unions worthy of contempt.
As I was telling a homosexual advocate the other day...just because you love someone doesn't mean that you ought to be having sex with them. I believe humans are meant to "love thy neighbor", but they must also use good sense and moral judgment.
So, if someone told you you could love someone but not have sex you would be okay with that?
Yes...I would be fine with that. I have strong feelings for many people, and as it is I am also a very passionate man, but I don't go around dropping my pants as a result of my passion, nor do I feel that I need to express my love for people sexually
In our state it was first called Civil Union . That wasn't enough though . For less that two percent of the US population we ruined the institution of marriage , for what P.C. ? Just one more nail in the coffin of normalcy !
When are we going to set some priorities and work on things that are of real importance like survival of humanity instead of spending energy to make life harder for a couple who have chosen to live together and would just like the same civil liberties we all take for granted.
Definition of MARRIAGE
a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage
b : the mutual relation of married persons : WEDLOCK
c : the institution whereby individuals are joined in a marriage
: an act of marrying or the rite by which the married status is effected; especially : the wedding ceremony and attendant festivities or formalities
: an intimate or close union
Nothing is taken from Heterosexual Marriage by allowing same sex marriage. Heterosexuals do not own the word!
Marriage was given to man and woman by God...not Webster's dictionary. You go around changing words and meanings and you end up changing the culture. You know that. Moving homosexual relationships into the norm will deliver a death blow to us all.
Hating and judgemental thinking will kill us way before homosexuality will. If there is a God and it is against his will, I would think it was his job to pass judgement, not mine or yours.
I'm not opposed to marriage between same-sex couples, but I am opposed to the name Gay Marriage. It should just be called Marriage--a commitment of love between two people.
Those who believe their marriage is something different from the marriage of same-sex couples are the ones who should change the name (they are the ones who want something apart from others). They could call it My Marriage is Better Than Your Marriage Marriage, or Imaginary Sky-God Approved Marriage, or One Dingleling, One Woohoo Marriage.
Treating people unequally is immoral and no justification will ever defeat that. People used the Bible to excuse the unequal treatment of women and lost. They tried to use it to excuse the unequal treatment of blacks and lost. They will lose this one as well. They are wrong and it is as simple as that.
I think based on one dingleing and one woo hoo you win best answer. Sorry. I too believe than "religion" is being used to justify discrimination once again. Thank you.
Perhaps, sexyladydee, you should learn to discriminate between good and evil. As it is, you have no moral compass because you have been brainwashed into thinking ALL forms of discrimination is bad, therefore you make decisions without moral judgment.
Funny how the people who claim to have a superior moral compass are usually the only ones in the room who are attacking people around them.
Indeed. I did not appreciate her discriminatory and demeaning remarks about me being a "dingaling" and another dissenter as being a "whoo hoo". If she admits it or not, she practices discrimination based upon a person's sexual preferance and beliefs.
Who's calling who a what? I'm so confused. Dingalings and woohoos was in reference to genitalia. I'd have used proper medical terms, but oddly those seem to get flagged. I was saying you (CJ) are the only one attacking people. Just to be clear.
Sexyladyee I pray and I believe in a loving father god. Jesus comes to many daily with open arms and says I love all and condemn no-one. That's as I understand him. Perhaps the rest god himself will explain. Thy will be done on this too Oh God...

Why are you against gay marriage?This is more for the people against it, although those of you who are for it feel free to express your opinions. I am just interested in knowing why people so vehemently oppose it.

Gay-marriage subjects children to having never known who their mother or father is.For those people who are pro-gay marriage, which parent would you have rather never known – your mom or your dad?
