  •  Do you understand (4+ / 0-)

    ...that allowing people to marry in a manner that is not in accord with the terms of your personal religious beliefs does not prevent you in any way from marrying in accord with the terms of your personal religious beliefs?

    Or, failing that argument, that lots of people can already marry who don't care at all about what the Christian faith says about their relationship.  Do those marriages weaken yours?  Do they weaken your faith in the institution?

    I posted a more pointed question for you a bit up the thread.  You should consider trying to respond to it.

      Thanks for asking...

      now how can I allow or disallow anyone anything...  people are free to do what ever they please.  I may object in some manner and on religious terms or some other but it is your right.  So don't try and tell me I am impeding you from any right.  Nah tru!!!

      Nothing you do weakens my being except maybe a physical beatdown.  but hardly anything you will do will take butter off my slice of bread...  Your stance on christainty does not, as you say weaken the institution of it...I have said several times today that even God does not impede you choice...

      •  But then why take the stance you do (0+ / 0-)

        If you are not harmed, why inflict harm on others?  The Bible itself says that, of the virtues, love is the greatest of these.

        Why would you, then, say that because a union born of love would not be sacred to your faith, that it should not be permitted to happen -- even (or especially) for those who do not share in your beliefs?

        •  you don't want to go into the bible on this do you (0+ / 0-)

          love is the covering fact that takes in the whole of the law...  even enemies are to be loved, those who use you and transgresser of the law...  I have not said anything about hate...  why do you question my love walk because I don't agree wtih the practice of homosexuality...?
