How can we know it isnt a lie?
...because I posted my opinion and you kept responding. If you didn't respond to me, and if you didn't say sharply worded things that made me cringe and have to fight the urge to get pissed off...I wouldn't respond back.
I def don't think we're on the same page. I would appreciate it if you took your arrogance and misunderstandings of my posts elsewhere and don't respond to my posts further.
With that it'll be my goal not to respond in this thread anymore. Have a nice day.
@L u c y, why hasn't this thread been deleted or at least sent to hos
The fact is a lot of bigoted Christians pick and choose their talking points. You have to wonder why @TheBigPayback chose to single out homosexuals here when he could have done like you and point out that all sex outside of marriage is a sin. Of course, the fact that same sex marriage is illegal is an injustice, so just counting it as a sin because it's illegal in most states in the U.S. is rather strange especially considering the upheaval that happening. Plus it's not illegal in other countries like mine.
Glad to see you posting here, Shadow.
Therus so kennada.
Agreed and thanks M-theory
Being gay is none of mine or yours business. In the real world it's pretty common, if you wanna pick up a book which says it's wrong and take it's word for it thats your personal choice. If you do, then don't be gay, good for you. Just let other people do their own thinking.
Omg. Everyone is going to hell:
13 Things The Bible Forbids Other Than Homosexuality (That You're Probably Guilty Of Doing)
You could have read thru the entirety of the post and saw that i did exactly that.
i chose to relate the thread title as the biggest misconceptions
on all ends(believers and unbelievers alike) lie with homosexuality and its accompanying factors.
But u brought up an interesting topic.
same sex marriage being illegal is an injustice??
I beg to differ.
Marriage is a religous institution. Not a right.
and certainly not a right for states to be involved w
Why dont they fight for same sex unions?
Marriage is about being recognized by God.
if u just wanna be recognized by the state or court there are avenues specificly for that.
but to force a preist or minister to recognize something that
He nor the religion gave no business recognizing is what this really boils down to.
I still see homosexuality being singled out in your post.
Marriage is an institution but it is outside the bounds of religion. You're full of shit. Do you give a fuck if non-religious heterosexual couples get married? No one does.
Non religious couples don't have "a Christian marriage" or "Muslim marriage."
@TheBigPayback says, in his religion, homosexual sex is a sin because it is outside marriage. But, he says, homosexuality is not a sin. Then he says, gays can't get married because it's a religious institution. Well then in your religion homosexuality must be a sin. Fuck.
If being gay is not a sin, then why can't gays get married? Why is marriage between a man and a woman only?
Is marriage a religious concept. yes or no.
should ministers and preists be forced into doing something that
is contrary to their religion. yes or no.
should the state dictate this?
Shouldnt they be arguing for state civil unions rather than God ordained
marriages to be performed in a church, by a minister, in a religious ceremony.
No technically homosexuality is not a sin..because its simply an attracive stance
its not wrong to love someone of the same sex.
but the act of sodomy is.
Problem is its hard to seperate the act from the title.
Which wether u admit or not causes a host of issues
for the minister or whatever.
So the issue should be completely seperate from the church altogether.
if its state recognition theyre after fight for the right to have a civil union.
i promise this would solve the problem all around.
Shouldn't you remove the mote from your own eye, first?
These are not all yes or no questions, they require thought. I wish that you would give it some thought as well.
1. No, marriage is not a religious concept. That one's easy.
2. It would not be optimal to have ministers forced into performing marriage ceremonies "for the gays" if it went against their personally held religious convictions. That said, it's outright discrimination to not allow gays to get married. It takes more than to simply weigh both sides an pick one, as you seem to be doing.
3. Yes, the state shoul dictate this.
4. They're asking for the same rights of heterosexual couples, which is marriage sanctioned by the state.
The U.S. could do well by looking at its neighbours.
technically being a hawk is not a sin
but flying is.
