Noone is judging the homosexual/lesbian but the sin of it stands judged already. It is clear in God’s Word that it is sin and He is not pleased with it. We are all born with a sin nature and some are given to some sins more than others. Everyone could be said to have been born a homosexual or lesbianism due to this sin nature. But it was ultimately YOUR CHOICE to give into that particular sin. You need to look again into all the Scriptures that speak clearly against homosexuality/lesbianism and I could site some verses if you wish. I do not, nor does any so called “Bible thumper” need to judge this lifestyle, God has done this already in His Word. It doesn’t matter those who oppose the Bible, argue and fight about it, or don’t believe it, because God’s Word is TRUTH and it STANDS for all eternity. We are all eternal and when we leave this earth by death we will live on somewhere (either heaven or hell), whether you accept it or not. (And I am not saying ALL homo/lesbians are going to hell). As the Bible says: in the end, EVERY knee will bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!

For those of you who live in the same free country I live in, I believe we have the freedom of religion. This would entail that I a citizen of this country, do not have to adhere to what is written in a book that people interpret to achieve their own selfish agendas.

I say Judge not less ye be judged, that would mean for you Bible Lovers out there, that if you judge me because I am a homosexual, you will have the same coming from your God. I personally am a Gay Christian and if you ever took the time to read the bible in its context and not pull out a single verse you might understand what the bible is trying to say.

God created us all and that includes homosexuals, some of us dont have a choice in the matter, as someone who has personally tried to be “straight” it just didnt work, i have no natural attraction to women and have even prayed that it be changed about me but it hasnt.

Either way though it is not a religious matter. I couldnt give 2 craps if you didnt let me have a religious wedding, i want a federally recognized wedding that allows me to go see my partner in the hospital.

Because we didnt move in when we met I have to wait 6 months to have my partner insured because i dont have the same rights a heterosexual male has to insure his wife when they wed.

You can belt bible verses at me all day long, this is a free country, i dont have to abide by a religious ritual which is just what you are making marriage seem like.

Grow up, go back to highschool and learn about America. Even some third world countries have surpassed us in this particular topic.

EQUALITY FOR ALL – DONT JUDGE ME BASED ON YOUR RELIGIOUS VIEWS – LET ME LIVE MY LIFE THE WAY I CHOOSE

You dont even have to call it marriage, it just has to give me and my soul mate equal rights as you.

GO OBAMA GO!!! PREVAIL AGAINST THOSE WHO WISH TO MAKE AMERICA AN UNFREE COUNTRY!

PLEASE TAKE OFF THE WHOLE ARMOUR AND SHIELD YOU ARE WEARING FOR AN INVISIBLE BATTLE THAT YOU ARE FIGHTING. DO NOT USE THE BIBLE (in all of its interpretations) TO CASTIGATE, DENIGRATE, AND TO PROMULGATE RELIGIOUS PLURALISM AND THEOCRATIC TERRORISM ON THOSE THAT ENACT THEIR FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THOUGHT TO DISAGREE WITH AN IMMORAL CHARACTERIZATION OF A LOVING, GENTLE, LONG-SUFFERING MAN, JESUS THE CHRIST! READ, STUDY TO SHOW THYSELF APPROVED. ATTEMPT TO UNDERSTAND THE TRUE METAPHYSICAL, NON-JUDGMENTAL, BIBLICAL ICON. AS A YOUNGSTER IN A FUNDAMENTAL CHRISTIAN RELIGION, I SAW THROUGH THIS HERESY, I QUERIED THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS OF MY FAITH, I READ, I STUDIED, I SAW THE in adequacies. I LEARNED OF GREAT CHRISTIAN PREACHERS WHO RECOGNIZED WE ARE ALL ONE, THERE IS NO SEPARATION AND NO DIVISION AMONG PEOPLE. STUDY WHAT TRUE LOVE IS, AND DO SOMETHING DRASTIC….GET TO KNOW A REAL GAY PERSON(S) YOU WILL FIND THAT HE OR SHE IS NO DIFFERENT THAN YOU, BLEEDS THE SAME, PAYS TAXES THE SAME, LOVES HIS OR HER SPIRITUAL COMMUNITY THE SAME, SERVES THE CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT LAND IN AMAZING WAYS! WHERE IS THE LOVE? DO YOU ALL REALIZE THAT IT WAS ALWAYS SPIRITUAL LEADERS THAT LED THE FIGHT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE, RIGHTS FOR ALL PEOPLE! GET A HISTORY BOOK, A CONCORDANCE, TAKE SOME CLASSES AT YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE. LEARN ABOUT RELIGION, DOGMA AND ITS PLACE IN THE PROPAGANDIZING OF THIS OUR GREAT LAND! EMBRACE EVERYONE IN LOVE, WITHOUT JUDGEMENT AND TRULY REPRESENT CHRIST ON EARTH!!!

I see that you define yourself as intellectually honest, are you saying that your thinking is governed by integrity of thought? BUT you question how any of my rights have been lost? Obviously your reading and comprehension skills are lacking. If you had noticed my previous post, you would see what it is that I have lost. I am an African-American lesbian, in that title alone much can be referenced that I have lost. The Patriot Act makes the previous version of racial profiling look like a pillow fight at a slumber party! Now, I can be profiled, or anyone that looks like me and snatched up into a VAN, taken away and never heard of again! As a citizen of this great land at this troubling time, I have lost the ability to travel without ease from one location in my country to the other. I have lost my personal privacy and autonomy. If such private activities as the messages I send through my email, the books I check out from my local library, even a confidential conversation I have with an attorney can be accessed and scrutinized, THIS DOESN’T sound like any of my rights have been lost? Are you really familar with the Patriot Act, do you understand the personal freedoms created in the Bill of Rights. I suggest you read both the Patriot Act and the Bill of Rights. If you are truly intellectually honest you will be able to understand the losses to every woman, man and child! Read the sections and compare to the Bill of Rights….you do the pedantic research…If you aren’t able to read between the lines and mourn the personal freedoms of every citizen of this great land, including yourself, you are NOT intellectually honest, BUT intellectually inferior!

She has no knowledge of God’s intention for the perpetuation of human life based on the marriage of a man and a woman who are anotomically created is a way which provides for children to be born. To willfully ignore the clear and abundant evidence of this reality is pure political expediency at its most agregious. She and her husband have no moral clarity in any realm and CAN NEVER BE CONSIDERED FOR ANY LEADERSHIP ROLE IN AMERICA
