"A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt
Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.” A Doctor called to a radio show & said: "That's the definition of a stool sample"
"Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Barack Obama January 2008
Just more evidence that government should remove itself from the wedding business altogether.
Gays getting married doesn't really mean they're married. I certainly don't recognize it as marriage (like I don't recognize many heterosexual marriages either). It's nowhere near the equivalent of my marriage.
It takes more than a piece of paper. Marriage is about faith and raising children. It's not a "state" matter. That's why this issue hasn't really mattered to me because it changes nothing.
But if the state wants to get involved with the "freedom" nonsense of it all, then anybody should be allowed to marry anyone, or anything, and as many as they please. I mean, marriage is about equality and freedom, right?
This is what happens when you mess with the fabric of our culture.
Out for a while for lunch....

And as pointed out, one or two theology courses relieves one of the notion that anything is cut and dried. As several years, my theological core is that it is a matter of your one on one relationship with the Father through the Son, the living God who speaks to us daily. And in the end, He is the ultimate authority.
If you know Him and how he led his ministry, from the social sins He deliberately committed, the woman at the well, consorting with drunks, lepers and tax collectors and NOT the authorities of the time, I have to ask myself with whom would associate with today? The more I study the more I question whether a clergy was ever intended, and that we all were supposed to be apostles.
