    Reform Judaism the largest sect in the US supports gay marriage

    No but all it takes is a complying judge to lower the age that is legally binding.

    Most businesses, religious or not, serve people with whom they knowingly object to morally. And in these cases of religious beliefs, it appears they may be 'selective' in when they choose to "play the religious beliefs' card.
    That is a ridiculous argument.

    Jesus was supposedly Jewish so why wouldn't a Catholic make a cake for their savior?

    Is there any religious text that says thou shalt not make cakes for other religions?

    Actually no it would take a Constitutional amendment seeing that people can not vote till they are 18.

DUH
    That would be obvious to most people.

    You couldnt answer it.

    It isibased on their Constitutional rights. If sexual orientation is determined to be a protected class, as it is in Colo and other states, then they are deserving of the exact same protections as minorities, women, religions, etc.

    *YOU* are the one claiming it is a moral decision, so "Do you make moral judgements against blacks for being black? Against Jews for being Jews? How can gays be who they are and NOT offend people like you?" Whats your answer?

    Why are religions, which ARE a choice acceptable but sexual orientation is not?

I'm sorry, but I don't live in that deluded and poorly informed world. I live in a world where I recognize that pedophiles can't ride the coattails of the gay rights movement because what they do is not consensual and where there is more justification to keeping family members from marrying than just "the gays can't do it so you can't either."

This whole thing stinks because those gays who are demanding rights are willing to trample the rights of others just to make an f-ing statement to force their relationships down the throats of those who morally find them wrong. Can you feel the f-ing love?????
    I keep hearing in my head

    I am here, I am queer, get used to it.

    I spent several years of my life studying Judiasm and 7 years studying the philosophies of the one I believe to be the Messiah. No I don't think you know Him any better than I do. Thank you very much.
