 I disagree with this thought process. No one supports EVERY platform or issue their party or candidate stands for. They choose that party or candidate because they support the Majority of issues they stand for.

 I'd love to find a Rep or Libertarian candidate that openly supports gay marriage, but until that day I will go with the one that aligns closest with the majority of my beliefs.

Quoting sweet-a-kins:

 You rparty is all about that...you support the party, you support their platform

Quoting rachelrothchild:

Not all of us are for banning gay marriage.  It needs to stay out of my church tho.

Christians don't want to ban gay marriage. Douche bags do. :)

No.

As long as Christians can openly worship, we are not persecuted.  Not even close.

As Americans, we should have the right to marry who we please.

Maybe the answer is to call all "marriages", gay or straight, civil unions. They'll be recognized as legal and carry all the pros and cons of what we currently call marriage. Then you can become "married" and bound before whatever god(s) you worship or not. Then we will all have equal civil rights and spiritual recognition appropriate to our beliefs.

 Why change to suit the bigots?

Marriage as recognized by the government now has nothing to do with religion. you can choose to include your religion, or not.

I was married by a JOP..I am the same amount of married as someone that had a huge chruch wedding....we both are recognized as being legally married because of the marrigae license, nothing to do with any religious ceremony

Just for compromise sake, I guess. It doesn't bother me either way. If more things had a secular, civil term separate from any religious terminology, I'd be happy. Peeps can get their spiritually ordained titles, education, and unions from whatever religion they follow.

 He is pro-gay marriage, right? Exactly what did he say that inspires you to say he was "ramming gay marriage down your throat" ? Wow. Isn't there another way to say that?

Quoting erika9009:

I used it because that is how I felt when I heard Gavin Newsom's speech back when the gay marriage debate started up.

It maybe over used now, but I still feel that way.

Quoting lga1965:

 Why do people use that "ramming it down our throats" comment? Its really old and passe and overused and really kind of icky and pornographic. Christians use that all the time.....its disgusting.

SO, if you want gays to stay out of your church, it sounds like you don't approve of people being born gay and lesbian then,right?  I thought God made all of us on earth in his image---think about it.And God wouldn't hate any of his children. We are all God's children,right?
