    Who are you showing to be a hypocrite? Unless you know that those who oppose same-sex marriage do not follow that law, which you do not, then you've not offered a very convincing argument. Why not stick to the merits? Christianity need not be brought up.

    I have never meet a Christian person whose female family or wife where sent away each month while she was on her period, maybe you could point me in the direction of one?

    You don't understand the passage if that's what you think.

And if any man lies with her at all, so that her impurity is on him, he shall be unclean seven days; and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean. (Leviticus 15:19-24)


    I will say one thing... the bible is good for some laughs, that's for sure. Even more amusing is how so many people take that **** seriously.

    What do you take seriously? Atheism? A belief in nothing?

    Hey, believe in whatever nonsense you want. Fairies, unicorns, big men in the sky... whatever.

    Just don't shove your irrational beliefs down my throat by making laws that prohibit me from doing something that your silly book tells YOU not to do.

    Can you prove it is nonsense? No? Oh, okay.

    Can you prove they are irrational? No? Oh, you're just spouting off? Oh, okay. And my "silly book" tells me not to murder or steal. I guess we ought repeal laws against murder and stealing. Wouldn't wanna offend anyone...

    You do know that laws against murdering and stealing were around before your book was even thought about, right? Even a broken clock is right twice a day, anyway.

    You made the claim, genius. The burden of proof is on you.

    So were laws condemning homosexuality. Or, did Wikipedia not teach you that?

    Anyway, I am for same-sex marriage because I believe in "Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and give unto God what is God's." I don't think we should shove religion into government affairs. But religion should not be bashed by those who can think of no better argument to support their position.

    Oh, and you should aspire to be like the clock - right twice a day.

    The fact that it can't even remotely be proven is sufficient for me to call it nonsense. That's kinda the whole reason people DONT believe in things like fairies and leprechauns. And gods and goddesses. Their existance cannot be proven, so believing in them is pretty.... senseless, really.

    So were laws condemning homosexuality. Or, did Wikipedia not teach you that?
    You shouldn't use wikipedia, it's really not a very reliable source.

    And yeah, I know idiots have made people's natural sexuality a crime in the past. Prior to the nonsense spouted in the bible.

    But that really wasn't my point. My point was that things being "right" or "wrong" are not so because they were penned in some mystical book of fairy tales.

    Anyway, I am for same-sex marriage because I believe in "Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and give unto God what is God's." I don't think we should shove religion into government affairs.

    I make fun of adults who believe in Santa too.
