What I still find funny is people who say they find gay marriage wrong and against the teachings of God but fornication goes against the religion and people do that. Women speaking in church is frowned upon according to the bible. Eating pork is forbidden but people do that with no second thought. No sin is above another and before you use scripture to justify the foolishness please use the whole chapter not just a verse. Btw what Jesus in most Christian bibles what Jesus said is in red don't remember certain parts in red where homosexuality was even brought up.

(I hope ya'll realize the stuff I wrote is sarcastic...and this isn't even all the 'rules'.)


Now,
according to MOST Christians, the Crucifixion and Resurrection of
Christ made old things new (not irrelevant, just new). Jesus' death is
the REASON we're not driven to hell by doing these things...we were
given salvation and grace as a gift, along with forgiveness.

Speculation is that the book was originally written by Moses, but it was FOR PRIESTS, who were mostly Levites, for whom the book of Leviticus was named. It was not the word sent from God to Moses. However a lot of current research shows it was written LONG after Moses (not making it any less valid though), again, FOR PRIESTS.

If the book of Leviticus holds true, then a whoooollllleeee lot of people in the New Testement were also damned to hell for a variety of things.


Amen and amen girl!

My daughter is 3. But I think people should be able to marry who they want I don't think it's fair to say that somethings in law should be religiously based while others cannot. If we all are equal and are allowed the same rights we should be able to marry whomever, if we are basing it of the fact that the bible says its a sin then we need to go and change the law so that we have a national religious based country.

I try to avoid it with my kids. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. If a gay couple want to get married that is their business and I wouldn't hold it against them. My aunt is gay and she resently "married" or unioned or w/e her s/o (my aunts second marriage). That is fine. I love my aunt very much.

If a church doesn't want to marry a gay couple, i do not feel that they should be made to do so. I don't think I see anything wrong with a gay couple being concidered legally married though.

My daughter is 7 and I don't think she would really understand that women who love women and men who love men were born that way. They didn't choose it. It wasn't just somethign they did or said to be cool in school. I think she would go around saying " When I grow up I want to marry a girl b/c boys are gross." or something like that. I don't feel that is appropriate.

Based on that list I've lost. Might as well take my place in line. Because I know with the way I inhale bacon that one about fat and unclean animals, there is no coming back.
