    Which is one of the stupidest reasons to ever be against anything. We have a 50% divorce rate (something Jesus himself talked against), rapes, murders, lies (almost every single person in this country lies about something every single day, and it may be all), fornicators (only about 3% of people in the US wait until marriage to have sex, that is less than the population of those who would fit into the LGBT... community), and so many other "sinners" in this country, yet some want to believe that God is going to punish us for allowing same sex couples to marry everywhere. This beliefs continues despite the fact that other countries have been persecuting Christians, Jews, and those of many other religions for decades, if not centuries or longer, and yet haven't faced anything that could be reasonably described as "God's wrath".

    You think it's religion that is evil, I believe homosexuality and gay matrimony are.

    One of us is dead wrong.
    You cannot prove that "sin" or really what you believe is sin, since that is subjective, affects us all negatively, particularly when these sins do not deal with one person doing something negative (stealing, killing, lying about, etc.) to another person.

    Personally, I don't believe that religion is evil, just a tool some use for various reasons, to explain some things they/we don't understand.

    No it isn't how it works. That is how you would like it to work, which is not likely to happen in this country any time soon, since most people would not be able to completely agree on how it should work, exactly what constitutes "living a sinful life". And no, the Bible isn't good enough since there are about 41000 difference denominations of Christians, and many within those denominations have their own varying conflicting beliefs with their churches. Heck, many Catholics believe that same sex marriage should be legal despite the Catholic church putting out that it does not support same sex marriage (54% of US Catholics support same sex couples being legally allowed to marry).

    It's wrong more often than it's right.
    Never claimed govt was the end all and be all.
    It is however the ONLY way that rights are granted. In a democracy they are also protected.
    Your seem to be under the impression that rights should be granted or removed based on your personal beliefs. That is not only silly it is just plain wrong.

    And fortunately for the rest of us you're wrong. Why do you need the U.S. to be a country that follows your interpretation of Christian law anyway? You're free to practice your faith.

    Yes you can say anything to me. You could say the moon is made of cheese or that the sun revolves around the earth.
    It's nice to live in a democracy where you have freedom of speech isn't it?
    However I am not trying to deny you rights so you would be in error if you tried to say the same things to me. You could say them, but you would be wrong.
