    What the Bible says should have nothing to do with civil laws; the ruling document of this country is the Constitution, not the Bible.

    I am a Christian, married for almost 22 years to a man who I love very much (well, most of the time). Not everyone in this country is a Christian, and they are still entitled to marriage under the laws of this country. There is no requirement to be married in a church to receive the civil rights and responsibilities of marriage -- you can have the fanciest church wedding in history but without that piece of paper from the State good luck with being able to take on those rights and responsibilities if something should happen to your partner.

    But of course you don't seem to care about civil law, but rather about making sure everyone lives by the Bible even those who don't believe in it. And that's not kosher according to the First Amendment.

      there has not been an instant where i have either asked or demanded anyone be a christian...  what possesses you to either lie or mistate what I said (giving you the benefit of the doubt).  I have said that everyone has the right to do as they please.  Have you ever heard of God pulling a gun on anyone or mugging anyone to obey Him.  He does not take prisoners.  

      I support people being treated fairly homosexual or whom ever.  

      I think God knows what He is talking about.  I mention the bible to let you know where I am coming from.  you don't have to believe the sun will rise tomorrow if you choose to your right...  just be honest and if you say something be able to back it up...

      •  Presumably, GOD does not need a gun, right? (0+ / 0-)

        He also doesn't need a belligerent hateful ass like you telling HIM what HE believes. I may be going to hell, but you definitely will be for presuming to be Moses. Just my kindly folksy sacred belief. I'm sure you may disagree, and I would never offend, but you are going to hell for blasphemy. If you'll be coolly accepting of my prejudice, this will be easier. If you wish to get all "offended" then, well, I guess you'll find out the Truth too late. I'm here as a friend and you are free to agree with me.
