Anyone care to explain? Because I REALLY don't get it. 

Please and thank you. :D

I agree, it really is just a matter of civil rights.  Its pretty simple.

Quoting Momniscient:

Yes I know the scriptures but its interpretation of interpretation and what not.

And I totally agree with you. I feel like love is my job and that's what I'll do.

As the Bible is meaningless in law anyway so it really doesn't matter.


Quoting survivorinohio:

As far as I can tell there are 2 Scriptures that speak out against it.  I also know from history that certain people had reasons to call out homosexuality and that its always been very political which in itself I do not understand. 

I know its not for me to judge the life and soul and sin of another and thats really enough for me *shrug*


Quoting Momniscient:

An mine doesn't indicate tht homosexuality is wrong and that homosexual marriage should be illegal...



Quoting 12hellokitty: 



Quoting survivorinohio:

Once upon a time women could hold no property, it was law based on scripture that women should hold no power over men.  It isnt hard to imagine that property and assets may give a woman power.

I would imagine there were a lot of people who felt that women being given the right to handle their own affairs was an attempt to undermine the church.  Do you Christian anti ssm people feel that  women should also step back to the subserviant status the Bible indicates we should have?

My bible doesn't indicate women as being subservient status...

 



How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

I think my personal gay agenda is to give Imacakebaker all the opportunities I can to write her homophobic vitriol on CM in order to make more people disgusted with the anti-gay movement! She will make them pro-gay for me! Thanks Tranquil for the splendid idea & Imacakebaker for all your hard work! & Kitty, you're welcome to get to work with Ima!

Quoting 12hellokitty:



I am on my Nook and cannot quote, but you asked if marriage being redefined is a new catch phrase. I don't think it is; I think it has been used recently in light of what is happening with trying to obtain civil rights for all. I used it to make a point about marriage not staying the same through the ages and that as the world changes, so do our definitions change.
“Life they say, can turn on a dime. And in a world that constantly shifts beneath our feet, the only thing we can know for certain is how we feel, the love we have, the fear we hide from, the pain we push away. Give it a voice, and the rewards are piece of mind and a peaceful heart.”

 It must really suck to live in such fear...I couldn't function while trying to maintain that level of paranoia...

Quoting kimbermccub:

   Ok, so my comment is this-- When I say that I believe marriage is defined as a union between one woman and one man. Do you see this as me being homophobic? Had a huge debate over this twice today!  Needless to say it wasn't pretty... and that part sucks.

It depends on if you follow your comment with "so I don't plan on having a SSM'.  Your okay as long as you adapt some type of support...for now.

Lolz from the interwebz:

The Homosexual Agenda

    8:00 a.m. Wake up. Wonder where you are.

    8:01 a.m. Realize you are lying on 100 percent cotton sheets of at least a 300 count, so don't panic; you're not slumming.

    8:02 a.m. Realize you are actually in your own bed for a change. Wake stranger next to you and tell them you are late for work so won't be able to cook breakfast for them. Mutter "sorry" as you help him look for his far-flung underwear. You find out that you tore his boxers while ripping them off him last night, so you "loan" him a pair of boxer-briefs, but not the new ones because you never intend to see him again.

    8:05 a.m. Tell the stranger, whose name eludes you, "It was fun. I'll give you a call," as you usher him out the door, avoiding his egregious morning-breath.

    8:06 a.m. Crumple and dispose of the piece of paper with his telephone number on it when you get to the kitchen.

    8:07 a.m. Make a high protein breakfast while watching the Today show. Wonder if the stories you've heard about Matt Lauer are true. Decide they must be.

    8:30 a.m. Italian or domestic? Decide to go with three-button Italian and the only shirt that is clean.

    8:45 a.m. Climb into red Z4 and try not to look too much like Barbie driving one of her accessories as you pull out of your underground parking. Revos or Armanis? Go with Revos.

    9:35 a.m. Stroll into office.

    9:36 a.m. Close door to office and call best friend and laugh about the guy who spent the night at your condo. Point out something annoying about best friend's boyfriend but quickly add "It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks, just as long as you love him."

    10:15 a.m. Leave office, telling your secretary you are "meeting with a client." Pretend not to notice her insubordinate roll of her eyes (or the cloying "poem" she has tacked to her cubicle wall).

    10:30 a.m. Hair appointment for lowlights and cut. Purchase of Aveda anti-humectant pomade.

    11:30 a.m. Run into personal trainer at gym. Pester him about getting you Human Growth Hormone. Spend 30 minutes talking to friends on your cell phone while using Hammer Strength machines, preparing a mental-matrix of which circuit parties everyone is going to and which are now passe.

    12:00pm Tan. Schedule back-waxing in time for Saturday party where you know you will end up shirtless.

    12:30 p.m. Pay trainer for anabolic steroids and schedule a workout. Shower, taking ten minutes to knot your tie while you check-out your best friend's boyfriend undress with the calculation of someone used to wearing a t-back and having dollars stuffed in their crotch.

    1:00 p.m. Meet someone for whom you only know his waist, chest and penis size from AOL M4M chat for lunch at a hot, new restaurant. Because the maître d' recognizes you from a gay bar, you are whisked past the Christian heterosexual couples who have been waiting patiently for a table since 12:30.

    2:30 p.m. "Dessert at your place." Find out, once again, people lie on AOL.

    3:33 p.m. Assume complete control of the U.S., state, and local governments (in addition to other nations' governments); destroy all healthy Christian marriages; recruit all children grades Kindergarten through 12 into your amoral, filthy lifestyle; secure complete control of the media, starting with sitcoms; molest innocent children; give AIDS to as many people as you can; host a pornographic "art" exhibit at your local art museum; and turn people away from Jesus, causing them to burn forever in Hell.

    4:10 p.m. Time permitting, bring about the general decline of Western Civilization and look like you are having way too much fun doing it.

    4:30 p.m. Take a disco-nap to prevent facial wrinkles from the stress of world conquest and being so terribly witty.

    6:00 p.m. Open a fabulous new bottle of Malbec.

    6:47 P.M. Bake Ketamine for weekend. Test recipe.

    7:00 P.M. Go to Abercrombie & Fitch and announce in a loud voice, "Over!"

    7:40 P.M. Stop looking at the photographic displays at Abercrombie & Fitch and go to a cool store to begin shopping.

    8:30 p.m. Light dinner with catty homosexual friends at a restaurant you will be "over" by the time it gets its first review in the local paper.

    10:30 p.m. Cocktails at a debauched gay bar, trying to avoid alcoholic queens who can't navigate a crowd with a lit cigarette in one hand and a Stoli in a cheap plastic cup in the other. Make audible remark about how "trashy" people who still think smoking is acceptable are.

    12:00 a.m. "Nightcap at your place." Find out that people lie in bars, too.

Here's a shorter one:

The Gay Agenda

I know that many of you have heard Pat Robertson, Jerry Fallwell and others speak of the "Homosexual Agenda," but no one has ever seen a copy of it. Well, I have finally obtained a copy directly from the Head Homosexual. It follows below:

6:00 am Gym
8:00 am Breakfast (oatmeal and egg whites)
9:00 am Hair appointment
10:00 am Shopping
12:00 PM Brunch

2:00 PM
1) Assume complete control of the U.S. Federal, State and Local Governments as well as all other national governments,
2) Recruit all straight youngsters to our debauched lifestyle,
3) Destroy all healthy heterosexual marriages,
4) Replace all school counselors in grades K-12 with agents of Colombian and Jamaican drug cartels,
5) Establish planetary chain of homo breeding gulags where over-medicated imprisoned straight women are turned into artificially impregnated baby factories to produce prepubescent love slaves for our devotedly pederastic gay leadership,
6) bulldoze all houses of worship, and
7) Secure total control of the INTERNET and all mass media for the exclusive use of child pornographers.

2:30 PM Get forty winks of beauty rest to prevent facial wrinkles from stress of world conquest
4:00 PM Cocktails
6:00 PM Light Dinner (soup, salad, with Chardonnay)
8:00 PM Theater
11:00 PM Bed (du jour)"

Actually you are wrong. Paul was responding to a letter he received from the church and those were their words NOT his, or Gods. He was repeating the words he was sent in the letter. Women are not pictured or painted as subservient beings in the Bible.
