Why should people have to leave their friends, family, home, and job behind to move to a different state in order to have certain rights? That's not fair at all, especially in a nation that claims to put the individual's rights before the needs of the "greater good."

Sorry for the late reply, I have finals going on this week.

I have been thinking about the issue of gay marriage and how to treat it as a Christian. It is a sin to live the gay life style, just as much so to be promiscuous and be straight. All sex outside of marriage is wrong, and sexual purity within marriage is to be kept. Because I believe in the Bible as the Word of God I believe the morals and sins in it are just, so I can't support these acts. At the same time though I am not called to judge others or impose my beliefs on them. The Bible doesn't say to force others to conform, but to live a life mirroring that of Christ. God gives us freedom to make choices, and as an American living in a democratic society it is my civil duty to vote on issues. If someone is gay or has premarital sex that's not for me to judge them. What I am to do is stand up for my beliefs but not imposing them on others. I will vote against gay marriage because I think it's wrong, however I will not judge gays or anyone else and put myself in a position to force my beliefs on them. I will stand up for what I believe is right and voice my opinion through my vote. But if it passes or if someone is gay I am not going to force my beliefs on them. I am supporting my belief that what they are doing is wrong, and I will not respect sinful behavior. Hate the sin love the sinner of sorts. I am still thinking and praying on this issue though, I don't know all the answers. Thanks for making me think.


the bible teaches me to marry a woman, and get a female slave, rape her, and have my wife "act" out a birthing with the slave, and force the female slave to give up the child....thats a perfect sexual purity and right moral for everyone to follow.


Uhhh. EXCUSE ME?

I'm not going to try to insult you because I'd be wasting my breath on a sexist pig.

But anyways...I swear...there's seriously no point in marriage -_-' Except for the benefits and all. It doesn't seem like anyone abides by the whole until death do us part...blah blah blah. People divorcing left to right

No its true, that really is what the bible tells you... But then that was from another time, after all the bible was created by man, and that is what they wanted in it. So if you wanna call anyone a Sexist Pig call the people had a hand in writing the bible one.

I do think the idiot who wrote the Bible are sexist pigs. But those who follow it also are sexist pigs. Geez, who follows what a book tells him/her what to do?

That is rude.. I know for a fact digs fallows the bible word for word, for he does believe it is 100% the word of God, and he has his right to believe so.. as long as he not taking away anyone else right to believe in there own things.. "Sorry digs..." I might not agree with Digs in his Ideals, but I would not call him a sexist pig! Not to I get to know him better. (and trust me I do not agree with him in a lot of things, and I still not call him that.)

Well it's my opinion that he's a sexist pig. So please, don't lecture me. The first of what he said, how the Bible tells you what to do, okay I agree with that. The Bible does dictate what you should or should not do. But his latter part, how it's a "perfect sexual purity and right moral for everyone to follow," I don't agree. How he worded it, it seems as if he believes that men control women. Well guess what? It's a new age and things are changing. Again, it's my opinion. Criticize me all you want. But don't lecture me. I know you're an intelligent guy but I'm pretty sure you've said some rude things in life too.

I am considered rude just for being an atheist. You know me not believing in a god seems make me rude for just questioning there beliefs or level of insanity mattering what they believe in without evidence.
But then I like to call that being blunt not rude... (but hay lot of people out there think I am rude..)

I don't mean to be sexist and I don't really see how I am... Thanks for backing me up Dark. I respect homosexuals, but my belief is that it is wrong. Therefore I can't support something I believe to be wrong. Not that I hate gays or judge them, but I can't put my support behind something I think is wrong and destructive. Let's refrain from personal attacks. P.S. Did you know that some women wrote the Bible? Moses' sister Miriam wrote some of the Pentateuch and God even appointed a woman (Deborah) to be a Judge and lead the nation of ancient Israel.

Now that's an interesting paradox in an individualistic society. Because those religious individuals that claimed homosexual individuals don't have equal rights as they do, for they believed that homosexuality is a sin. To me they are exhibiting behaviorism which indicates that they're actually under a collectivist cultural influence. While homosexual individuals who acknowledged their homosexual orientation are behaving like they're influenced by an individualistic culture.
