Same-Sex Marriage Poll Finds Support For Gay Rights On The Rise

Same-Sex Marriage Poll Finds Support For Gay Rights On The Rise

“Joan, historically marriages where religious across all types of faiths and between man and a woman. Love is the foundation of marriage, however God did outline the base of what a marriage is, and it is not same sexes. Jesus stated if you love me keep my commandments. If and action is base on disobedient behavior, yes he will reject it and has in the passed.”

“The debate if we are or not will not change. Historically this country was settled by different Christian group. The majority of the 80% of believing Christians do follow that "Book" and they have faith that its God's word to live by. It state that marriage is between a man and a woman. This is very clear. so Scotty, it really doesn't matter if you  agree with it not, its still not a marriage in the eyes of God, and its not in the Christian faiths. If you want civil unions that fine, but don't call it a marriage because it not.”

TVs Scotty J on Mar 22, 2013 at 13:34:37

“If marriage is a Christian concept, how come the concept of marriage predates Christianity?
And very funny that you think I'm gay. I'm not. Believe it or not many, many straight people are secure enough in their own sexuality that they don't get hung up on what others are doing in the privacy of their own bedroom.
You also don't seem to grasp the concept that our country is not a Christian nation and that are laws have no obligation to your belief system. The only document that matters in this country is the Constitution, which is crystal clear on the subject of freedoms and civil rights. EVERYONE gets them equally. I pity you because clearly you're going to be left behind as the world continues to change around you...”

“Scotty, This books has stood the test of time. The law was our teacher to teach us that we are all under sin. We could not get to heaven by meeting the requirement in the law. Then can Jesus to remove the chains of sin. "By Grace you are save not by your works". Why keep living in Sin if you know the great price that was paid for your sinfulness. If God's word say love your wife and not to commit adultery  then I should not do things to break our relationship.  ”

“Joan15, I agree with all you said , all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. However, if we should not willfully disregard God's word. Plus, we should bear each others burdens and help those who are living in sin gay and straight. I don't care if gay couples have civil unions, but don't call it a marriage because in God's eyes a same sex marriage is not a marriage.”

Joan15 on Mar 22, 2013 at 04:20:51

“That is a church issue not a legal issue. Marriage evolved not as a religious event but as a contract. Throughout history it has been used to ensure inheritance rights and to merge properties. This can even be seen in the Bible where marriages are not necessarily sacred unions but convenient arrangements. It is fine to add a spiritual, God based context to marriage, but that is a church marriage. The state has no right to define marriage in terms of the Bible. 
Who has asked God if he recognizes same sex marriages? I would guess that God would rather see a stable, loving same sex marriage than an abusive or neglectful open marriage. At the end of the day, He is about love. And where there is genuine love, I can't imagine he would reject it, so neither do I.”

“All the sinful things you point to destroy families. As a Christian you are commanded not to have any part with sin and your are to keep yourself unstained from he world. If you see someone killing them selves with drugs will you not help them? A gay relationship can kill both physically and spiritually. Loving you neighbor should be to telling what can happen because of sin all kinds of sin. Turning a blind eye to sin is not loving your neighbor. Also, the Bible says if you love your neighbor and hate God you lie, not following god's word is hating God.”

Joan15 on Mar 21, 2013 at 18:45:01

“Yes, all those things do destroy a marriage, but no one is trying to pass laws to prevent them. That is key one that this isn't about the sanctity of marriage or even God's will.
I don't hate God? I love Him enough to trust him to pass whatever judgment he needs without my assistance. 
No Christian is unstained. The focus on gays(or any one else's sin) is just  insecure Christianity where people seek to divert God's attention from their own failures by obsessing about the transgressions of someone else. Its like children tattling on a sibling to get themselves out of trouble. 
At the end of the day, I doubt there is a single Christian on earth with a soul so pure as to have time to worry about any sins but their own. So, I will worry about me and let God worry about the rest.”

“You right Dan it is getting bad. People who do not understand, all they can say is we are full of hate. I as a Christian do hate them, I hate the sin. This is satan's way of destroying the family unit. What God called good, one man and one woman. He will take all he can down with him. Keep standing up for what is right.”

Joan15 on Mar 21, 2013 at 05:37:01

“How many families are destroyed by gays vs how many are destroyed from within by adultery, abuse, neglect, additions. Heck, TV probably ruins more family units than gays do.

The way I see it, homosexuals are no more out of alignment with God than divorced people or people having pre-marital sex and co-habitating. How this became the single most important sin we must protect society against is not based Biblical, guidance but personal fears.

As a Christian, I will also stand for what is right--to love my neighbor as myself.

As an American, I will not force my religion on others as I would not want their beliefs forced on me.”

“It is evident that by much of what he wrote that his faith in God was set. Scripture state to teach a child of God and when he is old he will never depart. Lincoln by 1863 was proclaiming the Bible as Holy and divine and calling God, "Almighty". He also is asking for forgiveness of sins of the nation. He also made statements like this, "It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness". Lincoln. This is good advise for many of you.

One other point If he believed in the divine Scriptures he believed in the Jesus of the scriptures. "And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord." Lincoln”

“csgrela, why can you not see the Bible for what it is? It is simply a collection of writings that people have used to gain status, power, and control over others. Of course the people who have used religion and the concepts of God and "God's word" to gain status and power did not appreciate atheists, whose beliefs could only undermine their authority. You need to read the entire Old Testament to see the Bible for what it is - not just Psalms.”

Fear is a great motivator to tell the truth and being a curse would make people afraid. One more item, it seem that this fungus produces hallucinations.
