    It's important to those gay people who want to get married.

Anything goes only in chaos... the smarter of us fight those who desire for this chaos...
    Society once said that inter-racial marriages were unacceptable,and that allowing them them will breed chaos,and good people must fight against it.Just saying.

    And the relative size of that particular population? Let's not be overly dramatic about the importance of this species wide. Cooking food actually allowed us to develop larger brains and the use of the wheel gave use transportation. Gay marriage would give a very small percentage of us the chance to play house together. Hardly a vital species landmark.

    Would the pastor then have gone over the line,gone maybe a bit too far, might be considered to have achieved hateful? Might, maybe, would it then be considered hateful? BTW, not loving them cannot be considered to equate with hating them, not to a reasonable mind anyhow.
    As you probably are aware, that above couple of statements is pretty much a paraphrase of what you said about the pastor and his congregation in your first post that I responded to.

    Too true about the individual boy scout troop. However, I will hold for up scrutiny this apparent positive in your description of inclusiveness... as if by simply being more inclusive that this is just automatically a positive. It isn't. Depends on who you are including. Exclusion also can be positive, and in this case, is for the better well-being of the entire organization.

    The Christian thing to do would be to embrace the sinner but condemn the sin.

    Being a homosexual is not a sin. Engaging in anal sex and oral sex is the sin, sins which are often committed by straight people.

    True Christians do not condemn and cast out sinners. These churches and Christians that want to ban gays from the Boy Scouts and other organizations are not true Christians. No more than Neo-Nazis or Klansmen who call themselves Christian, are Christian.

    No reason not to allow it either.

    I think you are just hearing what you want to hear because you dont want to change your whole life around. You might be addicted to hate.
