[confused why this thread is in the circ section - got all excited and thought there had been a new 'discuss it' section created in the Religion part of the forum]
...nice to read there are some more progressive humanitarian type christians out there supporting marriage equality and rejecting outdated 'rules'.
As a Christian woman I proudly say that I support gay marriage. The only person I keep my lips sealed around is my MIL! The God I believe in and have always felt surrounded by is a loving God and it is not my place to judge but to demonstrate the love as requested, "Love thy neighbour".
I feel that in a world where there is enough hate and discrimination for any possible reason depending on the person or people so fuelled and driven to cause pain, that allowing a little more love and acceptance is alright by me.
As for the topic - I do not believe in a god and strongly support marriage equality. Very strongly. Same love.
Yep, I'm Christian and believe in gay marriage. Love in whatever form should be celebrated!
I'm an atheist, so clearly my opinion doesn't have anything do with a god, but I do think that if I were to suddenly convert, it wouldn't automatically change my views of humanitarian issues... so I'd think that if I converted to ANY religion, I'd still keep my views regarding same sex marriage (that is just as valid and should be equally supported, legally).
I know a few people who say they are religious who are okay with gay marriage. Others who are not.
I also know plenty of agnostics and atheists who are against it... so I don't think it's strictly a religious issue, I think some people just use religion as a scapegoat for their hatred and bigotry.
Same love same love <3
