Saruman_W: The other obvious (at least should be) reason is that it's simply unnatural and wrong. People get married to reproduce and build families: *real* families. Therefore only men and women should be allowed to wed since homosexuals cannot properly reproduce as they have a defect in their brain that prevents them from engaging the opposite sex. And it is clearly a defect because there's no evolutionary function for such a counterproductive behavior. It doesn't help pass along genes nor provides any useful purpose.


You know when you're out in public and you see a downs kid coming your way and he raises his hand because he wants to give you a high five because that's the only way he's been taught to interact with strangers so he doesn't loose his shiat and give bear hugs and grab crotches, so you go ahead and give him the high five, even though you hate germs and don't like touching people you don't know, because not giving him the high five would make you look like an ass and he's just trying to do the best he can with what he's been dealt so why not?

High Five, retard. High Five

Jim_Callahan: If you're a Christian lecturing about people not really knowing what their religion says, then I guess you're case-in-point, because homosexuality (male/male) is explicitly condemned several times in the new testament.

The primary ones being 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 and Romans 1, if you're curious.


Yeah, but that was Paul. Paul is like the Dr. Pulaski of Christianity. Showed up in season 2 with no explanation, and everyone's just supposed to ACCEPT that she's in charge of sickbay now? Who the fark are you?

St_Francis_P: The My Little Pony Killer: If you can't point to anything other than the book you pretend to read once a week, you have no point and should immediately go home and feel bad.

You're giving them way too much credit for reading anything. They get told what to think at church, and by their religious friends.

St_Francis_P: mrshowrules: New Testament says nothing about it but preach's love and the Old Testament says kill them because they are abominations in the crazy chapter.

So, the compromise is don't recognize their marriage? Why not life imprisonment or castration if it so wrong?

Leviticus also says eating lobster is also an abomination and those people should be killed. New Testament once again quiet on the subject. Perhaps Government should not issue restaurant licenses to a place that sellslobsters. Or maybe cut off the hands off fish mongers who sell lobster? Unclear. Very complicated matter. We need to study it out and pray.

It is confusing, but I think we can all agree on the subject of gay lobsters.


I would certainly agree that eating at Red Lobster is an abomination unto The Lord.

urbangirl: I have a problem with is forcing churches to act against their religious beliefs. (Which is kind of surprising, even to me, coz I'm as atheist as they come.) I mean, lots of straight people get married through civil ceremonies by choice and don't seem to feel they're second-class citizens as a result. So why is that not a solution for gay couples?


Serious question: are you stupid?

They have to say "religion." They can't give the actual reason, which is "I'm a bully," because it hurts their feelings when anyone calls them out on being a bully.

My experience with Christians is that Paul is the ONLY thing in the entire Bible that thety seem to actually believe. Paul let them have shrimp on their plate, hate in their hearts and a few shekels in their pockets without all of that mushy Jesus stuff getting in the way.

I guess they have to pick obvious poll subjects to rebuild their credibility after their spectacular failures during the election season.

Next up: "Majority of Americans believe water is wet."
