I don't care if you think I am evil. Nor did I call YOU hateful. Do you feel hateful?



Relax Tristan. And do convince yourself that I am evil for putting my faith in Christ for both the here and now and the eternal and unseen, while unable to see The Word of God and embrace the practice of gay sex as simply another expression of love. You see, in The Word too, it says that even if a man looks at a woman and lusts after her in his heart, he is guilty of adultery. Everyone sins. At least that isn't one you are guilty of!



But by that same standard, I would not want to see our country legalize polygamy either, just to legalize "adultery" so to speak...



I do believe in "live and let live," but you can't expect everyone to trash their own beliefs and moral values to get behind a political and legal push to socially normalize and gain special rights for a certain practice.

But the availability of divorce didn't change the definition of marriage - the one re-iterated by Jesus Christ in Matthew 19 - that marriage is for one man and one woman.

Homosexuals have several, including employment and property rental rights.



These 'special rights' are not accorded to any other category of sexual deviant.

Rights given based on one's behavior?



Hmmm, I don't think that sounds right.

you seem to have attended a very insulated school.

I went to a ghetto school in a major city that happened to have very good teachers who were interested in the students (and we were the minority) and who were there for an education. People with time on their hands have time to protest and picket. Those of us who were getting by day by day were just glad to have some food at school and teachers who were interested in us.

you mean like the right to marry based on sexual behavior? because I'm pretty sure that's what we have right now in the U.S.



By the way - do you think that we should also stop having laws that protect one from discrimination based on their religion? There is certainly no question that choosing which direction to point the car on Sunday morning is behavior.
