  • You pick a name, they do not care what it is called as long as they are equal in the eyes of the law.

    I always wondered if we removed the word marriage if the unions would be legal by now. I think that people get hung up on the word marriage, mistakenly thinking its a religious thing rather than a legal one.

    As for the "sin"- please read the entire code in which is it mentioned the most-they also advocate killing a woman who married and is not a virgin (sorry all you widows out there or divorced women!) and if your husband dies prior having an heir, you would need to sleep with his brothers until you have a boy (yuck!)

    I get that some feel its a sin, but denying equal rights based on your religious beliefs is not how the US operates-thankfully!

  • tn, your prayers won't be needed, thank you! we only need prayers from people who do not think of themselves as superior and support equality.

  • older look im not superior but neither are you ..certainly neither of us are superior to the Lord himself and His word says it is sin.

  • Older...that is very funny. :) But ya, I will be praying that this is NOT overturned. Marriage is for a man and a woman. PERIOD. If you want to shack up with someone of the same sex, call it something else.

  • anon, you pick a name, they do not care what it is called as long as they are equal in the eyes of the law. And by the way shacking up does not constitute marriage.

    But the world DOES revolve around the God who created the bible.
