    Re: North Carolina voters approve same-sex marriage ban

    My religious beliefs say that all marriage is unnatural. Which rights of mine are currently being violated?

    That is highly debatable at best.

    That is one interpretation of the bible, but far from the only one.

    They decided they were gay
    I don't know about you but I didn't decide I was a heterosexual. When I was going through puberty I didn't make a conscience decision to get a boner over my female teachers instead of my male teachers.

    If they want to get married, find a woman or man or whatever they need. Everyone is discriminated against, you don't hear people crying about it do you? I get discriminated against every time I go to Wal Mart because I'm the wrong color. Now, WHERE ARE MY RIGHTS?
    State discrimination is drastically different than you going to Wal-Mart and getting treated differently. If I walk into a bar in a rural area around where I live wearing an Obama t-shirt I would probably get treated differently (from those that didn't know me). That's not the same as the state restricting my rights to wear that t-shirt.

    You don't understand! His interpretation of his religious book is the only valid religion. Therefor it is a violation of his rights to do anything different than what his religion says should be allowed. His religion has sole ownership of the word marriage and gets to define it for everyone.

    On the other hand, putting into law things his religion disapproves of? Totally a violation of his rights.

    All of those should be changed to say "designated benefactor".

    Which is not likely to happen and in some cases would be a flat out bad idea.

    It's pretty hard to interpret this any other way:

    If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (NKJ, Leviticus 20:13)

    Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)

    They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-- who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. (NIV, Romans 1:25-27)

    I believe in the Bible, I am a Christian. I try to live by the word of God and cannot support people who do not. This is not right or wrong and nothing you can say or do will change this.

    We are done now,

    Goodbye.

    Off the top of my head I can think of the Greeks and Romans. I've also read stuff about Japanese culture. All were pretty accepting of homosexuality.
