I am not gay. I love women.

Ah another proof that it is a choice of a lifestyle that a man choose to have sex with another man.

Gay marriage opponents are all twisted in a knot about sex.

Marriage, gay or straight, is not about sex it is about love, economics and equality under the law. Denying loving couples the protections of marriage law is a civil rights issue.

People who are against same sex marriage are being called bigots so I think people who are against traditional marriage are bigots too.

Now that is about the stupidest thing I think you've said yet in this thread. Folks who support the civil right of gays to be legally married are not against your marriage or mine. We're inclusive. You're the one who wants the law to exclude people.

Your whacky statement is equivalent to calling supporters of racial integration bigots because they are not accepting good ol' traditional Jim Crow or apartheid. You really don't think too deeply do you?

Exactly.

We all know there's nothing wrong with being gay but it seems no one will admit to being gay.

Nope, his god is a closeted gay and does not judge marriage equality issues. His god does judge bigotry however. He told me so the last time we spoke.

Admit??? Sounds like you want a confession.

Some "nothing wrong with" statement.

You're right, "admit" was a poor choice of a word.

Re: but you miss the point

Different religious views about marriage is always about a man and a woman but Islam is a cult anyway, not a religion!

Do you allow the women in your life outside with any of their skin showing? If you do, you must be trampling on the religious views of extremists Muslims, and thus they should ban you from allowing that.

Re: Bigotry is never justified.

Look anywhere on my threads that I prohibit civil rights for gays. They can have all the rights and civil unions for all I care. What I am against is gays redefining the meaning of Sacrament of Matrimony!

Doesn't matter either way. If you're violating their rules, it's the same as a gay couple violating your rules. If you can ban the gay couple from violating your rules, the Muslims can ban you from violating their rules.

Right?

Right.

No hypocrisy or bigotry here, of course.

Wow. That explains pretty much everything about your posts. The ridiculously sad thing is that you are far from alone.

stop and open your ears

they dont want to do that - you are the only person talking about that - - they just want to get a judge, get married and have government recognize it - - - they dont care about being recognized by any religion that says they are sinners

seriously - - would you want a marriage that was recognized by a religious group that thought everything you did in your life was wrong?

you keep talikng about the Sacrament of Matrimony as if these people were members of your church asking your pastor to perform the wedding

marriage is not just a religious thing - - fact is I would bet that the majority of marriages in this country had nothing religious about them

why cant you separate religion - and marriage

Sacrament of Matrimony - is a religious service - just being married is not the equivalent

think about it - - - if we think of marriage only under the terms you using then atheists shouldnt be allowed to get married - - seriously if every marriage is a Sacrament of Matrimony - how that be given to someone who dosnt even believe in God?

Look anywhere on my threads that I prohibit civil rights for Christians. They can have all the rights and civil unions for all I care. What I am against is Christians seeking to exclude homosexuals from the legal right of marriage.

Re: but you miss the point

What a retarded logic....

"Doesn't matter either way. If you're violating their rules, it's the same as a gay couple violating your rules." -

If I travel to Saudi or Egypt and the one of the Religious rules are women must wear a cover then I will abide with their rules! I am not going to change their rules just because I am a Christian. Plus I don't want to get beheaded!

That's a Catholic concept, I think. So if they can't get a Catholic to marry them (or, more likely, they don't want a Catholic to marry them), let them get a judge to do it. Then it's just marriage not the "Sacrament of Matrimony" and it doesn't affect you at all.

You aren't good at clear, critical thinking.

If a gay couple comes to your church, they have to follow your rules (as you would abide by the rules in "Saudi or Egypt"). This country isn't your church and they should have every right to marry outside your exclusionary backward-thinking church.

Why not?? You are redefining the meaning of the word bigotry.

I would have thought that half the "artists" on these forums were gay.

So what's your point? Only someone who is Gay would support eliminating bigotry? Half of America is gay? It's a stupid question to ask, and a stupid statement to think it's a legitimate question.

How about, "Of those who think Zimmerman is guilty, how many of you are Black?"

Dave

Didn't mean to upset you Dave.

If you're gay, it's fine to admit it. Nothing wrong with being gay.

According to these religious zealots, being gay (even just THINKING about gay things) means an eternity in hell. One helluva thing for god to give inflict being gay on you and then send you to hell forever because of it.

You should be proud of your individualism and your inner feelings.

Good cyclists are:
Visible, Predictable, Alert, Assertive and Courteous

They also use the five layers of protection available.
Layer 1: Control your bike (Don't fall or collide with others)
Layer 2: Follow the rules (Don't be the cause of traffic crashes)
Layer 3: Use Lane position (Discourage other drivers mistakes)
Layer 4: Hazard Avoidance (Avoid other drivers mistakes and road hazards)
Layer 5: Utilize passive protection (Use protection when all else fails)
