    As a Conservative, a Republican and a Christian, I would like to say..

    thank GOD more states are finally coming to their senses..
    IMO, it is UNChristian in the worst way to deny gays the right to marry..

    Women couldnt vote..what was used to support that position? the bible..
    Black people are slaves..what was used to support the position that they SHOULD be slaves??
    the bible..
    Black Kids and White kids are finally allowed in the same schools (amazingly..this is the 1960's)..what is used to support the position that white kids and black kids should NOT be in the same classes together?? the bible..
    "mixed race" (black & white) heterosexual marriage was illegal...yep, the bible again.

    using the bible to support anti-gay marriage is our society's last great fling with bigotry..
    women got equal rights finally..
    blacks got equal rights finally..
    a black man can marry a white woman finally..
    black kids can be in the same classroom as white kids finally..

    only one outpost of bigotry and ignorance remains..
    keep up the fight.

    Scot

    p.s.
    yes, there are lots of Christians who feel as I do..
    im working to increase their ranks..

    (dont bother to reply to me specifically..especially if you want to tell me why, as a Christian, im wrong..I wont believe you, and I already heard it all..I still wont believe you..so save your breath..thanks...)

    I think he was saying basing social issues on the Bible hasn't had the best results in the past :P He didn't blame the Bible, he blamed people taking it literally and not in a modern context.

    ok..im not done yet..one more point.

    in order for the Christian anti-gay position to make any sense and to be remotely valid, homosexuality has to be a CHOICE..you have to CHOOSE to be gay, and CHOOSE to therefore commit the sin of homosexuality..

    because anti-gay christians certainty can never admit that gays are BORN gay..
    that wont work..because if they were born Gay that would mean God MADE them gay..
    and if God made them gay, then how can it possibly be a sin right?

    so these Christians, amazingly, have to believe that gays CHOOSE to be gay..
    that position is so amazingly laughable its pathetic..
    and there is a very easy way to prove its wrong..
    simply ASK any gay person who has ever lived!
    ask them if they have a choice!

    and if was a simple choice, like choosing to smoke or do drugs or commit adultry,
    why have so many gay teenagers commited suicide?
    why was it such a big deal that they had to kill themselves because their so-called "Christian" society told them they were evil?
    why couldnt they just say "well..this gay expirement of mine isnt working out so well for me..I guess I should just "switch back" and be straight now.."

    why cant they "switch back" to being straight?
    because they were NEVER straight to begin with..

    God creates babies with ambiguous sexual organs, neither totally male or female..I doubt anyone can sucessfully argue that the babies CHOSE to be that way while developing in the womb..
    so God Himself creates ambiguous physical sexual traits all the time..
    but yet we are to believe that its impossible to have male sexual organs yet not have male hetrosexual brain chemistry?? God cant do that? wow..I didnt know you had the authority to tell God what He can and cant do..arent you special.

    and..if some people can choose to be gay..why cant ALL people choose to be gay?
    I honestly cant CHOOSE to be gay..its impossible..
    why?? because im NOT...its simply not an option for me.
    in the same way, gays cant choose to be gay..or choose to not be gay,
    they have no choice..they were CREATED gay..
    if you believe in God, you have no choice but to believe that God created them gay..
    therefore, homosexuality can not be a sin..its impossible.

    ok..now im done!

    If its consensual, in what way would it be mentally damaging other than the social stigma attached?

    It doesn't intoxicate you, you intoxicate you. You have to purposefully consume an amount to make yourself intoxicated.
    James 1:17

    "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."

    It raises the question of any psychological conditioning that may have taken place. Sort of a pseudo-Stockholm syndrome.
