    For the same reason that "gay parking" and "gay breathing" don't exist.

    Great article for those who believe in Christ and want some biblical ammunition against certain religious groups hating/shunning gays & gay marriage.

    Agreed, but we just have to have our Right recognized so we can fall back into folds of society like every other minority... I'm going to finish my gay web surfing early today. icon_wink.gif

    I've asked this same question before, and the standard response is that Jesus loves the sinner but hates the sin.icon_mad.gif

    In the article the author, Mastin Kip, states: It's that simple.

    When it comes to religious debate on any subject it is never that easy. While I don't agree with his faulty reasoning I won't go into any of that here because it's besides the point.

    I see the gay marriage (or rather the right for gays to marry) issue as two distinct issues - one being secular (legal) and the other religious(beyond the law).

    We as homosexuals should first concentrate on getting the legal right to marry in all 50 states and territories. We don't need to invoke Jesus because He has no legal standing in our court system. Jesus wouldn't approve of abortion but it's legal. We have to make a case that it is unconstitutional for the states and federal government to deny marriage rights to gay couples. The legal right to marry, with all its attendant rights and privileges, should not be denied any adult of legal age who is sound of mind to consent to be married.

    Now, if you want your particular religious denomination to marry you then make a case to your religious authorities why they should allow you to be married in their church. Its their church and they have every right to extend membership rights and privileges to whom they see fit. In petitioning your church to extend religious ceremonies to same sex couples it would be appropriate and to your advantage to make the case why Jesus, Moses, Mohammed, Krishna, etc would not object.

    I really don't give to shits that the church of my youth wouldn't marry me and have no desire to be married in it. I do however want my government to extend to me all the rights and privileges granted heterosexual married couple should I ever desire to be married again (been there done that and not ready to do it anytime soon).

    I am so thankful I live in a country where individuals have a choice between the two options.
