Oh I don't see the secular world attempting to suppress fundie religions. More like refusing to allow fundie religions from dominating the national discussion on our society.
No marriage is a PERSONAL thing, to you religious to me secular. Marriage comes in a wide variety of forms, anyone attempting to push it into the domain of religion ignores millions of citizens who have marriage certificates but never set foot in a Church.
Quite a "coincidence" that this thread was started on Christmas Day.
Reading through the rules, one may be warned for "Being a jerk" or posting inflammatory, offensive material meant to inflame, being a troll.
Christianity and the Bible, which forbids homosexuality, has been under attack from the same sex marriage advocates for thirty years. Given the nature of this forum, a thread such as this would be guaranteed to have many posters immediately leap to pick one of the five positive responses as opposed to the single negative response.
I don't have a dog in this fight, but the fact of the timing and the nature of the thread seems to be a gloating, in your face intent to offend the Christians on this forum. At the very least, insensitive and intolerant of the beliefs of Christians.

"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh".
He's quite clear on what man shall do. Now, you can play stupid and say "But the word commandment is never used in that scripture, so we don't have to do it". And then my answer will be "When God says "you shall do this", it doesn't mean you can just blow off what he says and expect to have his support.

My opponent is a liar, and he can not be trusted
This election began like a car wreck; a bad thing, but I couldn't help but look away. It's now more like a beheading video; a sickening display where I can't hit the red X fast enough.
