They are - if they want to marry a member of the opposite sex they are give just as much right to do that as you and I. I don't see how that's unfair. There is no need for a second option. Also meant, what's wrong if I want to oppose it in a legal sense, you know, such as voting.
But you do the same thing to gays. You criticize them for their live and basically force others to do certain things, just to make you happy. You can't tell others to stop when you are doing exactly the same thing.
So you acknowledge that the same is being done to me? Making it a two way street with a double standard? Okay then. I can agree that I'm doing also, if you can agree that same is being done to me. Call this one a draw.
Actually since you brought this up, there is a US "rule" called the "Gay Panic Defense" (or something like that) where a straight person can get away with murdering a gay person if they claim the gay person "made a pass" at them. This is a legal hate crime and is completely wrong and should have never existed.
I've never heard of "Gay Panic Defense" but it sounds extremely wrong. Where does this exist?
Good point, still it really harms a lot value and purity that marriage is suppose to be about. Just because our country has no sense about it when it comes marriage, doesn't mean it in of itself is not a good thing.
You are exactly right, but for the wrong reasons. The government is here to help protect people and ensure equality for all as is stated in the US Constitution. The gay community is the in need of protection as we are killed, bullied, abused, and oppressed for simply being gay. You don't see interracial couples getting the same treatment. Heck at one point black people were in a similar but far worse situation than the gay community and they got equal rights and the Bible is totally for slavery, so why should we now defer to the Bible on gays when we ignored it to forever stop slavery and give equal rights to those once enslaved. You don't get to pick and choose what you want to follow if you wish to follow the Bible, it's an all or none deal.
As for as honest and sincere labor goes, slavery is okay. what Americans think of slavery has been and will forever be tainted. Understandably. The HORRIBLE and inhumane treatment of the many slaves is where the line was crossed. They were still people who should have been allowed to work without fear, receive their fair pay, go home and have a nice meal. Sadly, they were dogged and beaten. Most of the fair and honest work, however, was perfectly fine. The parts that was actually fair mind you.

From: S_Fox | #056
I'd love so badly to say thank you sir or take credit, it always warms my heart to hear this. At last, since this is a sincere and honest topic, I can't take credit.
From: Evray | #057
Bring some light on me? Alright buddy let me explain this to you.
I don't acknowledge the Pope. Scripture NEVER mentions a pope, so really, I don't believe in one. I'll bite on the other stuff though.
All that stuff about the translation - you do realize we have a great deal of the original letters or at least copies of them, we don't just need Isaiah. Proper translation from the Koine greek is a VERY possible thing today. I can go look at my Greek New Testament from desk even. So as far as the word homosexuality goes in the bible - It is NOT there, but we cannot be so ignorant to say that it doesn't not clearly outline homosexuality, particularly in Romans. And for the love of all, just because the Bible does not have a huge list and goes - THIS IS SIN, THIS IS SIN, THIS IS NOT SIN -Exactly like that, doesn't mean it does not clearly make it understandable about what is and is not. When it says they committed what is shameful, that doesn't it's okay.
So you blindly believe that it is a sin despite the fact that we don't have proof of it in the Bible itself and we know historically passages have been changed to favor the Church's views? Just like we celebrate Jesus' birthday in December despite him not having been born in the Winter? We did it to convert pagans because they celebrate yule. Christmas trees are a pagan tradition yet your Bible will also tell you that you should not act as "the heathens do".
It's actually not Jesus' birthday. I don't celebrate it for such either. These days, who celebrates Christmas? Every day Joe. And so do I.

|Who am I to tell them they can't get married? I'm God's temple " 1 Cor 3:17" his royal priest "1 peter 2:9" his saint "EPH 4:12" and God's prophet "Forth teller, not a fore-teller, it can mean both" He has specifically chosen his church, including me, to tell such people they cannot do such.|
Why does it affect me? Because it's my responsibility to help people such as those desiring homosexual marriage see that it's wrong, that's why. That's what Christian were made to do. That and a few other things.
How dare I? Well if true love is the love you think it is, then I'll continue to do so.
Night all, pick it up in the morning.... probably.

We may not be getting "bent over", but in many ways it's getting thrown in our faces, and Homosexuality should not be encouraged by our government in the way of allowing same sex marriage. It's totally fair to use such arguments anways because same sex marriage is such a radical thing to allow, it easily fall in line with the others. Just because you accept it and think it's okay and others do, does not make it such and should be held in light regard.
From: ManSaurus | #045
Oh spare me. You don't know anything about me. You read a post and get so angry about it you can't help but think, NO YOU HATE HOMOSEXUALS DON'T TWIST IT INTO SOMETHING STUPID YOU CHRISTIAN. Buddy, I've dealt with you and your type more times than I'd like.
I'm going to go ahead and explain the different degrees of what's wrong with it and then I'm going to bed, with my wife, whom I love.
Hatred - Wrong. I love them. I may not accept or want to allow them to get married, nor there choice in lifestyle, doesn't mean I hate them. PLEASE explain why I should support something I believe to be very wrong. NOT convince me it's right, tell me why I need to support something if I believe it to be wrong. What kind of twisted stuff is that?
Perverting Christian love and faith? Remind me on what occasions did Jesus ever encourage somebody to continue to sin? Don't hand.
Judgment. You clearly don't understand this FOR SURE. Matthew 7:1-2 Says Judge not least you be Judged, for with the same judgment you judge, that measure will also be used against you. " A. That's mostly referring to Hypocritical people who love to point out others sin, while doing the very same thing. Though if you want to, go ahead and hold a strong Judgment against me. Just tell me what' I've done wrong in love, and I'll repent. Also John 7:24 says "Do not judge by appearance, but with righteous Judgment". Righteous judgment following the lines of making it known that is a sinful practice and God is unhappy with that.
Went around calling people... - Okay, I never said that here, nor implied Jesus said that, mostly because he didn't either, so sorry not with you on that one.
I can't tell somebody they are going to heaven or hell, I can only tell them that the Bible makes it clear consequences for their actions. And if my standing up and saying that homosexuality is wrong and marriage of such should not be allowed, helps save a soul from hell, do you really think God will be unhappy with that? If so, what scripture do you use?

From: cheezitman2001 | #037
Oh gosh, spare me. Now let me put into perspective for you
I, personally, believe that homosexual marriage is wrong and unacceptable. NC, overall, agrees. I'm happy about this. You tell me that I have to allow what I don't believe to be okay and accept it and do nothing about it. Yet I'm the villain here, trying to oppress others? Why shouldn't I be allowed to think and make effort to show that it's wrong in a legal way. All the people who've come in here and criticize me, are they not any better than what you think I am? If I do what you say so it will make you happy and others, aren't I now being forced to do certain things?
And where would the line be? Should we suddenly say murder is acceptable so long as it's in a moment of passion. Should we say marriage between humans and animals is acceptable, because they are truly and deeply in love.
The government is here to help protect the people from certain things. And sometimes, those certain things need to be people themselves.
No I didn't vote, because I don't live in NC anymore, glad that my vote still wasn't needed.
Oh, and if you don't like it, don't live in NC. That simple.

I'm sticking up for what I believe to be right. Why should I do otherwise? You say who am I to to tell somebody how to live, yet isn't that what your doing to me?

|This movie blew chunks. Iron man was a whiney baby who yet again hung on the coat tails of others, the whole time and drank himself like a loser.|
Thor had hardly any Donald Blake moments and JMS representation was nowhere to be found. I thought I was watching Kathy Lee acting as Thor. Trash.
Black widow didn't even take her clothes off, though I guess we've already seen Scarlett partially nude so it's alright.... wait no it's not.
Hawkeye tries to act like green arrow the whole time and fails the whole time.
Captain America was hardly any leader for the team, though I suppose it's fitting. Superman alone would have whipped these lamers into shape and Loki wouldn't have lasted 3 seconds. Superman is the true american hero, not some sissy who needs a shield.
Sam Ja... I mean Nick fury didn't cuss enough, nor did he do anything to help the team in organization .
The WORST part of it all was the Hulk was calm the whole time through and didn't even destroy so much as a piece of paper. In fact he and Loki ended up talking things through and that's how the conflict ends up getting resolved, total gib job. At this point I almost left the theater.
The after credits spoil is Cyclops shows up and declares war on the avengers and disney on behalf of the mutants and FOX. He then proceeds to kill Jean Gray and the movie is officially over.
TL:DRToo much Marvel not enough DC.
Needed more Flash, pun intended.

2. He never said Thanos was in this movie, you assumed he was.
3. It in no way discusses or ruins any of the plot for this movie.
4. Mentioning thanos being in the movie is like mentioning Maria Hill being in the movie. Just because they are not in the trailer doesn't mean they weren't expected to be there.
5. Stop crying.

Odin never actually wiped any "Universe" away, that was not even canon.
Not to mention the fact that Odin would be helpless against an army of Manhattans, which he could create. They would all predict Odins moves and create an adequate counter.
