The entire country of Canada accepts same sex marriage mainly because there are a whole lot fewer fundamentalist Christians such as you...I am happy to see that your ranks are shrinking rapidly.

Thank you for a rational answer. I don't know that that's accurate, but it is well thought out and expressed.

Canada would be a good place for you. Consider it seriously.

It's pretty much the same reason old people get free health care benefits and young people don't.

Sir,

I preach the gospel of Jesus Christ Superstar our Lord and Savior! The Lord does not rebuke because the Lord rebukes you!

There in lies the real problem, the bible is just a collection of fables, phobias, lite porn and a great deal of bronze age ignorance.

The bible is totally baseless as an authority to say anything. After all would we all not already be dead for committing other sins it lists as punishable by death. Did you ever become defiant to your parents growing up? Then your dad failed in that he did not gather the town folk and take you to the edge of town and have you stoned to death.

Stupid stupid stupid stupid

Now all you have to figure out is "am I talking about what the bible says, or that some believe it, or both"

If that gay person feels he is committing sin then he/she is. Sin is a man made concept and the person committing the act determines if that act is sin or not. There is no divine being that cares what you do with your winky or where you put it.

JFK moon speech
We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
Is this the same America?

Kudos for those straight folk standing up for equal rights.

Hint to US bigots, when SA allowed gay marriage, contrary to all the Chicken Little doomsayers, the sky did not fall. Churches did not have to marry gays, nothing changed other than the gay protests/picketing stopped.

I think your jesus would be ashamed of you lot (if he were real)
