    Or, do you wish to return to the days of 5K years ago ?

    All throughout the Bible God says homosexuality is an abomination. Homosexuals will not go to Heaven. LOTS of references.

    If you think gay marriage is immoral, you should absolutely be out in the streets trying to put a stop to it. But I have yet to see a single coherent argument as to why it's immoral.
    I, like God, believe that homosexuality is wrong. I have no interest in going out in the streets to protest. I have bigger fish to fry. It's immoral because God says marriage is between a man and a woman.

    I, like Jesus, believe in love, compassion and forgiveness. Where does the bible say "forgiveness of sins excludes homosexuality"?

    Yes, it is right that this is a legal issue. There is more at stake than the private lives of citizens, as marriage is a vital social institution that forms the basis of families. Marriage is, and must be, encouraged at every level in society.

    Like I said, no coherent arguments. Every other moral argument can be justified by more than "God says so", even concerning such matters as premarital sex and others that are typically considered to be strictly religious affairs. I will notice that you do not hold the same disdain for people who violate Jewish dietary laws, though they are mentioned in the same passages.

    Exactly! What scares me is that now in America, our first step to getting equality in this was to go to the government, get on our knees, and beg. Nobody even considered why they were asking the government for a freedom that years ago did used to be equal in that it had nothing to do with government and everything to do with two people having a ceremony.

    Since you brought up Adam and Eve, how does God feel about incest?

    Homosexuality (like any sin) can be forgiven. All that is necessary is for those people to confess that it is a sin and forsake it. Of course it is necessary to be "BORN AGAIN".

    Don't you fancy yourself the smarty pants, eh? There is a legal argument to deny homosexual marriage has any challenge to the US Constituion, just like there is a legal argument that any identity based expression has the right to marry, as long as it does not infinge on anyone else's rights, and as long as there is no compelling state interest to limit it.

    I would like to hear it. Why doesn't the anti same sex marriage side ever share this mysterious argument?

    Aw come on, CT, we had a thread on it not too long ago. Something like 1880 posts. I have the abridged version in the basement if you want to go look.
