Comments on: Gay Vietnam vet tackles Romney Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: GetpIaning Tue, 13 Dec 2011 22:24:15 +0000 American political discourse has become so ridiculous I am done commenting on it.

By: wilsedw Tue, 13 Dec 2011 21:05:57 +0000 Mary Waterton, you are a disgrace to humanity. Your views on homosexuality are totally irrelevant. This man was willing to put his life on the line for you and you’ve essentially just spat in his face. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Mr. Garon, if you read this, I’m very glad that you and your longtime partner were finally able to marry. I hope that someday homosexual couples everywhere will be able to enjoy the same rights as heterosexual ones. Thank you, sir, for your selfless service to this country.

Leviticus 19:27

Fun times ahead if the Bible ever becomes the basis of constitutional law.
I agree…it makes about as much sense as two men (or women) marrying each other.

Oh wait…

Anyway, these oddities concerning appearance written in the old testament where to physically distinguish the Israelites from neighboring nations…especially after coming out of Egypt where many Egyptian customs where adopted. It was basically a dress code.
Another distinguishing factor for example:circumcision. Remember the Bible is largely a historical account…not just a list of “dos and donts” as many people believe.

Stand-up if you believe that a homosexual/lesbian shouldn’t have the right to save you life. Stand up if you believe that you would commit suicide rather than have a homosexual/lesbian save your life. Stand up if you believe that you shouldn’t be given blood from a homosexual/lesbian. And while you’re standing up, stand up if you believe a pregnant woman should die from illness, or disease, or fatal physical condition rather receive an abortion that would save her life. Stand up if believe that America should not be the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

By: HAL.9000 Tue, 13 Dec 2011 18:41:11 +0000 “Neither is homosexuality explicitly mentioned in the Bible, though it should be noted that fornication and adultery are mentioned…”
Question: “What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Is homosexuality a sin?”

Answer: The Bible consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27 teaches specifically that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God. When people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. 1 Corinthians 6:9 proclaims that homosexual “offenders” will not inherit the kingdom of God.

God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality.

However, the Bible does not describe homosexuality as a “greater” sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God. Homosexuality is just one of the many things listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that will keep a person from the kingdom of God. According to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is just as available to a homosexual as it is to an adulterer, idol worshipper, murderer, thief, etc. God also promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 4:13).

By: Mspms100 Tue, 13 Dec 2011 18:36:14 +0000 Obviously, Ms. Mary Waterton is ignorant not only to the bible and what religion really is but also to everyone’s constitutional rights. Ms. Mary Waterton is a disgrace to humanity and religion. YOU GO BOB!

By: YoYoFishing Tue, 13 Dec 2011 17:44:27 +0000 While Romney and his Mormon “collective” have issues with gays, they sure don’t seem to mind corrupt polygamists. Funny how Mormons spent millions fighting gay marriage (Prop 9) yet they turn a blind-eye on tens of thousands of innocent polygamous women and children who are systemically abused behind their secret Zion Curtain. There are over 300 polygamous cults thriving in Mormon communities throughout the southwest, and the Mormon “collective” simply pretend like it isn’t happening. Game over if Obama tells Americans to watch the documentary film, “Banking On Heaven”. You can’t trust people who ignore pain and misery in their own backyard? The film shows how women suffer at the hands of brutal polygamists, how they’re forced to live on welfare so their children don’t starve, and how powerful Mormon legislatures, law enforcement, and millions of church members do NOTHING. I would NEVER vote for a Mormon.

By: Laini529 Tue, 13 Dec 2011 16:59:05 +0000 Massachusetts legalized gay marriage back in 2004 – and we don’t want Romney back!

By: NobleKin Tue, 13 Dec 2011 16:56:25 +0000 @Mary Waterton is an outright bigot

And she probably considers herself a right and proper Christian.

Because Jesus clearly demonstrated that hate and fear are what God intended for us to feel against anyone we consider different from ourselves…especially those lepers.

God Bless America.

By: CaptnCrunch Tue, 13 Dec 2011 12:05:08 +0000 Legalizing gay marriage opens no new new doors nor gives any special protections other than extending basic marital rights to same sex couples.

If my wife for example became ill and was hospitalized, I have the right as her husband to stand by her side and act as proxy in her care and treatment if necessary.

In most states if Bob 1 gets sick, Bob 2 would have no such rights, and quite possibly as a non-family member wouldn’t even be allowed in to see his loved one.

My wife gave me that logic and it has turned me around on this issue.
