Yes, "Satin" will have a lot of fun things in store for all the bigots that think they can treat people like second class citizens because of who they love. I just bet he will.

If it's immoral it right and if it Moral it's wrong. See what happens when kids are not taught the bible they grow up to pass bills like this.

Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.

I was raised biblically, but the older and wiser I get, I feel so bad for my family..knowing that they fight their primitive instincts in the name of some crazy black and white idea of right and wrong. The older I get, the more I realize that this is the only life we get and we were born human, and humans desire mind altering, they desire to be carnal, they desire adventure and mostly we have the innate desire to be free. We are our own god, not our own creator, but our own rulers, the only decider of our fates. I've started to ramble, but my point is..we get this once chance to be humans..don't deny yourself the things that make you happy whatever they are..just be happy and enjoy a full free life. Be one with this world and with your human instinct

I was going to write something to try to persuade you but I figured why bother the point is to get beyond this world.

If you were as smart and as "worldly" sophisticated as you think you are, you'd know exactly what carthoswalker said. There was no "trying" to it; it is extremely plain. And he's right, as well.

I don't know how we got here, I certainly don't think something came from nothing or that we crawled our way out of the ocean to become what we are now. I just can't imagine a god who would expect us to deviate from our human nature to try to be "perfect". Emphasis on the word "try". I think we were born with free will, another part of our nature, just a fact of our make up and not a gift. It broke my heart when I finally realized there probably was no "beyond this world".. I don't know what's after this world, I WANT there to be something, but I don't much believe it.
