It has already changed the work force and the military drastically
Gays do not have to worry about the future .They will get all the rights they want because it will get more votes for the democrats.I know a lot of gays, never a problem. One of my best friends took his life before he fully changed over to a woman.I believe there has been a lot of genetic problems that has caused this which have been caused by the polluted earth.I just take it as a alteration of a not so perfect world.
All I want is my union to be legal, i don't want a church wedding. I just want my parner as well as I k, given the same LEGAL rights as anyone else.
I am truly amazed at how this nation is on the virge of becoming Anti-Christ. Few seem to realize that our bodies come with an instruction manual-----The Holy Scriptures. This book was written by the Hand of God and is for the benefit of mankind. You see, without this instruction manual, our bodies will self-destruct, just as a new automobile in the hands of an irresponsible owner. Unfortunately, there are individuals who refuse to be bound by any law, whether scriptural or natural and have decided that no one, man or God, will dictate ever how they live. The results of their ungodly behavior will eventually affect and surely devastate all of us. These laws in the scriptures, were put there for the purpose of protecting us from ourselves, from all wickedness and from the Judgements that are a result of mankind's disobedience. I've noticed that most of the citizens of this country have never read the scriptures in it's entirety even once in their lives. In order for one to understand the mind of God--- his cares, his reasoning, his mercies, his provisions and his judgements, it is imperative that one reads the scriptures from cover to cover at least once in their lives to understand that a true Christian is not a "homophobe", but he fears the righteous Judgements of the Lord upon the land. One should understand that if we open the door for one group of perversion (and indeed we already have), we MUST eventually open the door for EVERY group of perversion. Simply put and as far-fetched as it may seem, at some point, the pedophiles will come calling, demanding their rights. How low will we go? How low are you willing to go? Will you stand for Jesus, despite the rage of the anti-christs? I fully expect many of them to blaspheme this post with their unholy vitriol, even the ones who attempt to put in their "intellegently educated" twists. Far too many people are confused about the righteous way. Even many "churches" have added to the confusion by "watering down" the scriptures. The only way that you will know for sure, is to read the entire Holy Bible from cover to cover for yourselves, then the Holy Spirit help you to discern between the quick and the dead and save yourselves from this untoward generation. It is my prayer, that all who read this post will read and heed the word of God. That way, you will become fully aware of God's opinion and therefore debunk "popular opinion".
I am truly amazed at how this nation is
I am hetrosexual , I could care less who is gay , bi, lesbian , married or not . I dont know if its herditary, in the genes , or just and act of preference . What I do know is they are PEOPLE , If they choose to marry ,then why not . Inter-racial marriages are still frowned upon and will be for years to come , my own father dis owned his daughter for marrying a spanish guy . The bottom line is we all live , we all die , we all bleed read and we are all human . I wonder how many people on here that are so against gays ,what they would do if they found out one of their siblings or children were still IN THE CLOSET . As for Obama , he switched horses in mid stream on his beliefs , i would rather him say no contest than to suddenly change his position . Dont judge lest you want to be judged .
I must say thank you to all the mouth breathing bigots out there that don't realize our benefits (your tax dollars) pay our military retirement. I'm retired army & my husband of 23 yrs is retired navy. It means so much that you care to keep sending us monthly payments for the last 20 or so years & now want to complain about civil marriage? (which happens to be a CIVIL right). We served proudly even to protect your right to bitch & moan about things you don't have a clue about. You can stop shoving your antiquated religion down our throats, & we promise to not make you suddenly have sex with the same gender. Keep the CIVIL in CIVIL MARRIAGE. Even a church wedding has to have the state's permission to wed. But, do us all a favor & be on the right side of history for a change. We are not heterophobic, but admit we hate it when you get away with acting that way in public & denying us the right to do so too. Like old racists you too will die out soon & the world will be a better place with out you. Just ask your children & grand kids. Your heterosexual privilige is showing & it's not pretty. If I were you, I'd get back to worrying why you have over 50% divorce rates? Certainly you can do better.
Just a thought...why should gays pay tax's if they cannot enjoy the benefits of them in some cases? Is that being 'equal?
I would type in the usual references to 99% of all medical professionals say that GAY is a part of normal society and has been around for tens of thousands of years. I would also usually mention that Religion has nothing to do with secular law and society. Religion is a choice. If you choose to be a bigot that is between you and your deity...but I won't bring those things up. The ignorant theocrats won't bother to try and comprehend them and the bigots have already decided to ignore them. To those people all I have to say is this. You are a dying breed of knuckle dragging hypocrites. As you die out the population of thinking, tolerant and loving people will grow. It can't happen soon enough for me.
After that nasty tirade do you consider yourself one of the "tolerant and loving people"/
I consider myself educated on the topic and on societies viewpoints. If you wish to make fact a tirade then so be it. I have never stopped anyone from going to church or having inbred bigotry. If you wish to be in the category of the latter that is your perogative but i won't support it and i won't wash it clean for you. Personally I think discrimination is vile.
Most certainly I am tolerant and loving. I have never stopped anyone from getting married, holding up hate sign at soldier's funerals or from having gainful employment with the same benefits as anyone else. Pointing out bigotry and the hypocrisy of religion simply makes me truthful.
To all the duped dopes who continue to use the old, tired and stupid lines about how marriage is one man, one woman, or biblical law says this or that: we are not defined by your silly, ridiculous religious beliefs. That is YOUR thing. And, if you want biblical marriage, which kind? Multiple marriage? Arranged marriage? Do you also believe, as the bible says it is okay to own slaves? Stop using the book of Jewish fairytales as a guide to thinking people living our lives.
It's not the book of Jewish fairy tales, (as Bill Mahr put it), it's the Christian Bible whose majority of readers adhere to and believe word for word. Most Jews are pro gay. (Any one who is orthodox or fundamentalist in any religion is not...this is a problem) My father was responsible for allowing the first gay synagogue 40 years ago to open. I believe the anti-gay people are those that believe in Christ, which is the "bible" they adhere to.....the one that they made after they killed the jews and had them fleeing and dispersed for 2000 years, by the Romans, who were openly gay. It's one crazy world. Pointing fingers doesn't help.not the "Jewish book of fairy tales". Jews have been the main focus of bigotry from time immemorial, and still are. I hardly think they ae the ones guiding people's decisions.
