Dave - I think the reason people are citing stuff from the bible is bc you are basing your decision on not agreeing with gay marriage on what the bible says. People are simply showing that there is a whole lot of gross and conflicting stuff in there. That you can't pick and choose. You either take it in it's literal sense and follow it, or you don't.
I dont believe religion and politics should mix. So i wouldnt vote against it.
Even Jesus didnt get involved in the politics of his day and said that his followers should remain seperate from it also.
I dont judge homosexuals nor think anything less of them. Same as anyone else who doesnt hold the same beliefs / views as i do ie - Athiest, hindu, morman, catholic or someone who practices things that are viewed as a "sin' according to the bible.
I don't think there's anything wrong with something being unnatural. I do plenty of things that aren't natural. Some in the bedroom that certainly don't fulfill the 'natural' role of sex of creating new life (round peg square hole analogy can apply to heterosexual couples as well!). I dye my grey hairs which isn't a natural thing. I had a csec which isn't natural. I ride an exercise bike which isn't natural.
I think the term unnatural is accurate but it doesn't need to be offensive. I don't mean any offense by that I am a big supporter of same sex marriage.
Cherry picking of the highest order.
I tell you what is completely unnatural, judging other peoples relationships when it has nothing to do with you (general you) and has zero impact on your life.
Personally, I believe that all religions are as bad as each other. But you know, if you want to be in one, then that is your choice, it has no effect on me or my life. Much like gay marriage has no effect on anyone else's life than those getting married. Pretty simple logic really, you can try and confuse the point with all the bible quotes, but it isn't working. Sorry that you have wasted all that time
What homosexuals 'do' is what they are hardwired to do - to love the same sex.
I think people hide behind Jesus when really its their own issues or homophobia that opposes gay marriage. Jesus most likely wouldn't have a problem with it, he'd more be interested whether they were a good person or not.
