    I agree. Anyone wanting to that is troubling.

Well, I don't believe you have the right to do that.
    I am considering moving over to Digsbe's pov in regards to SSM. However, that will not change what the scriptures clearly say about homosexuality. I also realize that America isn't a theocracy, and if I were in a Muslim nation that pushed their more traditional Muslim beliefs upon us, I'd undoubtedly take issue, as well.

    I hate to tell you but some don't think the Bible really says anything about homosexuality let alone SSM. However, that doesn't really matter as Americans are not required to be Chrisitians, as you pointed out. As a Christian, I bleive the Bible is the beginning of the discussion and not the end. I know any uncertainty makes people nervous, but we can't change that we simply have changed how we view the Bible. To do otherwise would be to be more like the extremists we all like to hate.

    so when the Bible talks about "when a man lies down with another man, as he would a woman"...that's not referring to gay-sex?

    Ciontext. If you read the entire thing, that section is discussing all kinds of things not to be done during a certain period of time, and includes heterosexual sex.

    Romans has mostly been altered by King James, and most more modern interpretatiosn build off of King James. There are good books on this, but the only site I know of is Relious tolerance.com. And they are too superficial and don't give the complete explinations.

    The only point I have is that what the Bible actually does or doesn't say is less clear than many may like it to be.

    Leviticus condemns those who engage in gay-sex, to death. This is a fact.

    if you tolerate everything, you become undefended against all dangers and difficulties in the life..anybody may abuse your emotions , humanitarianism,your goodwill etc..

    The intolerance and hypocrisy in the name of tolerance displayed in this thread would be hilarious if it weren't so sad.
