    Let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

    2 Timothy 4:2 ESV

    Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.

    What Does the Bible Say About Rebuking?
    Do you do everything the bible tells you to do, or do you conveniently ignore many parts of it like most people who call themselves christian?

    Thank you for admitting that your position is based on no logic but religious bigotry. It makes it much easier to dismiss your opinion for the hateful garbage that it is.

    A secular government [The FedGov] shouldn't be passing laws concerning marriage. That should be left to the states as it has been in the past.

    Then I assume you oppose DOMA?

    States should be secular, as well. Oppression by decentralized government rather than a centralized government is still oppression.

    Yep when there's no argument left, it comes down to my opinions [or billions of others] are irrelevant.

    The truth is, homosexuals are closer to irrelevant than anything else.

    When it comes to basic rights, every individual is relevant and the personal beliefs of a billion are irrelevant.

    It's not a duty of the FedGov. especially when they can change their opinion [and the law] on a whim.

    Not allowing people to change the meaning of marriage is not oppression.

    That makes no sense. States can change laws, as well

    Not allowing people to change the meaning of marriage is not oppression.
    Not allowing consenting adults to form a contract IS oppression.
