I have been reading a few posts on gay marriage (again). One thing I noticed is people trying to look at Christians (or anyone else who is against gay marriage) and call them hypocrites and ask why they are not fighting other sins going on in the world. Well, couldn't this go both ways? I know Christians who have talked against gay marriage for years. The gays however did not protest them, or anything of the such then. So why is it that now the gays are stopping and trying to fight against what various religions believe?
Personally I believe we all have the right to stand up for what we believe in. If someone is passionate about marriage being between a woman and a man, then so be it they have every right to stand up for that belief. Just as if someone feels passionately that everyone can be married, then so be it. But for one side to bash the other is ridiculous and makes everyone look bad.

They are against children praying in school,~~~WRONG! We are against non-Christian children being forced to pray Christian prayers to a Christian God...your child may pray anytime,anyplace, anywhere...what they may not do is have a teacher stand there and force the class to recite The Lord's Prayer. having bible groups,~~WRONG AGAIN! Many public schools have bible study groups...the difference? They are voluntary and student led...not forced and mandatory. god in the pledge of allegiance~~Partially right on this one...God wasn't included in the original pledge and it presents us as a nation of Christians...which we are not...we are a nation of many (non)beliefs.

What you are wanting is for the school to lead christian prayer. Be honest with us. You want christians to rule everything including who does and does not marry.
Hammer, meet head of nail....I do believe you may be absolutely right, Anon...which would make our country not a Republic or a Democracy...but a THEOCRACY which is the opposite of a free country.
