Of course, all the members of your church have passed background checks and are all approved.
I don't live in Sewanee, con.
Unlike you, Connie, I don't hate.
Not as thankful as I am, I assure you.
You know nothing about me Connie. Let's keep it that way.
Yeah, I feel the Christian love from Connie every day on this forum. A true saint.
Ten commandments? Garbage. There is no law against blasphemy, no law requiring people to observe the sabbath, no law requiring one to honor their parents, no law saying one cannot worship whatever god they choose. No laws against coveting.
Allowing gays equal protection under law does not hurt anyone. The private behavior between two consenting adults regardless of gender is no one else's business. Gay marriage is inevitable because there is no legal or moral reason not to allow it. Don't like gay marriage? Don't marry someone of your own gender. Don't approve for religious reasons? Bully for you. Belong to a church that won't bless these marriages. I won't belong to a church that discriminates against women or denies science.
Gay marriage offends some people. Too bad.
Some gays plan open marriages? I'm shocked. Since I know plenty of straight marriages where one or both partners cheat, seems only fair. I also know many monogamous gay partnerships that have lasted decades. Not a good justification for denying equal protection under law.
Heterosexual sex with birth control, between infertile couples serve no purpose either according to your description. So we should ban these too?
