    Are you counting Old Testament now?

    I mean far be it from me to tell people how to interpret their own holy books, but I was under the impression that some of the fundamental tenets of Christianity were that you should love everyone, and that judging other people isn't your place.

    I think that is between them and God, so if they want to marry and a clergyperson will perform the ceremony, man's law should not be the stumbling block. God can handle it, He dont need the conservobots to here on earth. Why are atheist Republicans against gay marriage?

    Except that the legitimacy of the notion that it "prevents [them] from performing gay weddings" is in question. It's an assumption and a guess by a blog whose entire purpose is to promote gay rights and attack those that don't, so hardly a credible legal source. Considering the law's been on the books since the 90's and there hasn't been some kind of wide spread report of religious figures being rounded up and charged for conducting private ceremonies for gay people in that state, I'm going to guess that the interpritation that suggests it makes performing a private ceremony illegal is in error...

    ...but please, don't let any kind of reasoned thoguht get in the way of your fervor to bash Conservatives. Don't want to ruin your and Rocket's good time.

    Idiotic.

    Murder is one individual infringing upon the rights of another. Your right to religious freedom doesn't trump my right to life.

    Having a private homosexual marriage ceremony infrnges on no ones right. They have a right to religious freedom, you don't have a right not being offended

    He thinks homosexual marriage infringes on his rights. Don't ask me how it does that, I'm not clear on that part.

    You do realize the word homosexuality didn't exist then right? However, it does say that the acts of homosexuals are an abomination.

    According to Deuteronomy, remarriage after a divorce is an abomination Deuteronomy 24:2-24:4 NASB - and she leaves his house and goes and - Bible Gateway, yet the law permits that.

    "Abomination" is a translation of a few different Hebrew words that have slightly different meanings, and none of them carry exactly the same meaning as the English word "abomination."
    You do realize you are using different contexts of the word to mean the same thing right?

    That view is by people who generally either don't believe or follow the Bible, or, take that line out of context to ignore the rest and live lives the way they want to.

    Plug that same argument into Abortion, or free speech and you will see that it doesn't fly.
