If it's not a right then it must be a privilege and privileges have to be earned and they can be take away. I guess liking the opposite gender is privileged. Just goes to show the inequality in this country. So if a man marries and divorces several women he should have his right to marry taken away by a judge because he's abused that privilege and abused the sanctity of marriage? He is therefore unfit for marriage and should have that privilege take away so he can never marry again. Is that constitutional? If marriage isn't protected in the constitution and is not a constitutional right then the scenario I presented should be constitutional to deny a man the right to marry a woman. Why not ban divorce?
I love your logic.

Hey Rogerg it's been a very long time. Are you still living in the States? I have been reading about how bad the Cartels have been.
Unfortunately our Republic turned into a Democracy a long time ago. In fact now we are more of a police state then anything else. At least in my opinion.

I have, that is why I am able to post links to credible sources that all support my position on the matter at hand and why you, and others like yourself, can post only baseless speculation, innuendo and self-enforcing, specious allegations of merit.
If you come to play, you should at least bring a ball....
"Because no one knows why some people are born with an inclination toward heterosexuality and some people are born with an inclination toward homosexuality, the most Christian thing we can do is exercise grace toward those with whom we disagree on this issue.

Instead of judging and condemning their gay brothers and lesbians sisters and transgender family members, Christians should be walking in the Spirit, Galatians 5:16, loving each other and being about our Father's business, witnessing the good news of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone."

A security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. is being hailed as a hero after he stopped a gunman posing as an intern, taking a bullet in the arm before wrestling the suspect to the ground.
The gunman entered the lobby of the organization's Chinatown headquarters around 10:45 and expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions, Fox News has learned. When the guard, who was not identified, asked him where he was going, he opened fire, according to police.
The security guard here is a hero, as far as Im concerned, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said.He did his job. The person never made it past the front.
The guard, who was not identified, was shot in the arm and was conscious after the shooting and was in stable condition. The gunman, who also was not identified, was being questioned by the FBI, sources said. Sources said he is in his twenties...
Sources told Fox New that after guard took away his gun, the suspect said, "Don't shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for."
Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism, although James McJunkin, the head of the FBIs Washington Field Office, said authorities do not yet know the gunman's motive...

(Cough ... Cough) so lets see here. The only thing that may show this incident to have anything to do with Homosexual marriage is the "posibility" that he may have had a chick fil A bag. So now anyone that carries a chick fil A bag is a homosexual.
Good thinking there Brian.

Which word(s) is causing you to see a conflict?
All through old and new testament writings, there are people working and running businesses.
Jesus was a carpenter, by trade.
Paul, a tent maker, said he ensured that he worked so as to not be a burden on others.(America could sure use that message today!)
Jesus threw the money changers out for running a business in the name of the God. When you drive past a sign for a car repair shop or a plumber and see fishes and crucifixes, they are using religion to advertise and draw in customers. We don't even allow that in the flag code:
"The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever."
But of course, there are "patriots" who ignorantly line their Japanese car lots with Made in China stars and stripes. Why be surprised at "Christians" who similarly ignore scripture and disrespect the cross?

<quoted text>
Just because a heterosexual Christian doesn't agree with the homosexual life style and agenda doesn't mean it is automatically hateful motivated disagreement. I am a heterosexual Christian who does not embrace homosexuality-my right to believe this is equal to any right of the gay community. But the gay community wants to demonize everything about my core social, political, and religious beliefs by attacking me and others of the same beliefs with name calling and vicious verbal attacks.
So, gay folks and supporters of gay folks, if you squeeze the frog to hard, it will piss on you. Don't want to be pissed on? Quit pushing your agenda so hard.
Just as you I'm a heterosexual Christian as well. I also don't embrace homosexuality but I also don't hold any prejudice against them. As a Christian you should know that you're sins are as bad as theirs are. You are told not to judge and Constitutionally we have separation of church and state. So in fact they are being denied their Constitutional rights.

No, my statement equates those who practice their hatred in the name of their Christian beliefs and so called "traditional" values with hate crimes and prejudice towards homosexuals and other minorities for that matter.
I'll ask the question again, how many homosexuals have been beaten or even killed by those who "believe" they're "wrong" just for being who they are? And how many of those same hateful people base this hatred on beliefs they've derived from the Bible?
I'm sorry but there is a correlation. If anyone is "intolerant" here it's not homosexuals.
See, you're doing it again...

Does the guy who shot the FRC worker represent all gays? Should society claim that all gays are violent? How many conservatives have been attacked by gays the "believe" Christians are wrong?

When people act contrary to the principles of their beliefs, then they no longer represent them.

Scripture clearly indicates that living a homosexual lifestyle is contrary to God's intent for man. In the OT it is referred to as an "abomination" - that's a strong statement.

Furthermore, God provides a process to allow man to choose to live according to His Word. So the choice is with each person.

If anyone chooses to live contrary to God's Word, then they have, by their own choice, selected THEIR OWN moral standard to live by. And if they then attack others based on their OWN moral code, then YES, they are being intolerant. Intolerant of God's Word and intolerant of those who choose to follow it.

<quoted text>"The reality is that good people do not become bad people simply because they hold a different view than you regarding homosexuality."
The same can be said for you.
What happened to separation of church and state? I'm a Christian that believes that as one we are to love our fellow man/woman. Not hate, beat or deny them equal rights.
What does God's Word say? Does scripture tell followers to hate people? to beat them? to deny them rights? I don't think it does and it seems you do not think so either.

Does scripture teach man what is Godly with concern to sexual behaviors and relationships between men and women? Sure, all throughout.

You are a Christian if you accept and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ (that's basically from definition). You claim you are and so you likely know that Jesus taught from and prophesied in agreement with the scriptures, the Old Testament; the New Testament being the account of Jesus and the New Covenant.

So the point then is this:
There are two different moral standards being followed if one person rejects some or all of what the bible teaches and the other person accepts it. They are following different definitions of right and wrong and state opposite views concerning homosexuality.

Every relationship based on love requires one to say no to that which is wrong or harmful. A parent will say no to their child when he/she does wrong. It doesn't mean they hate them - just the opposite!

Certainly God allows each person their choice on whether to accept or reject his Word. For those who do reject it, obviously they will be in conflict with those who accept it. They will argue that it is bigoted or wrong to follow God's Word concerning homosexuality. But it is not. Rather just the opposite is true.

It is only when one follows a moral standard apart from God's Word that one can claim it is wrong to do what God teaches.

What are you doing here? This shooting is "more true" to this specific person's intolerance. Not the "gays". So you are the one doing "the same thing".

That being said, how many examples of incidents like this are there compared to hate crimes committed towards homosexuals?
grinder wrote:
<quoted text>The gay message: Reject your values and beliefs or something bad will happen to you..


The gay message? Are you claiming all gays are relaying that message? Yeah, you kinda are..

The Bible was written a long time ago and it can be interpreted in many different ways. Our society has progressed and mateured past some of it's teachings. Many scriptures once thought to be literal are now being seen as product of the time period they were written in.

In other words. Those beliefs that Christians base their hatred of homosexuals on are dated and simply amount to prejudice now. It's the year 2012. If God does indeed exist. He created us all, even homosexuals. They have just as much a right to be happy as anyone else.

Are you familiar with what the "money changers" were trading and their practices? They were trying to make money selling animals to sacrifice for a person's sins. These people were hindering and profiting from a person's effort to try and seek forgiveness for their sins.

Jesus states that he did not want robbers in his temple - he said to them, "'My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers.'"

You'll need to make a better argument for businesses identifying themselves as Christian as being a problem somehow. It seems fine to me. What scripture(s) do you think teaches otherwise?

No, actually my point is unscathed. Of course it "seems fine" to you - I've read your posts.
I also know that the money changers and the temple priests ran a scam in which they sold tokens to be used in tithes.
Care to advance your take on why priests aren't allowed to get married? It's hardly in line with "be fruitful and multiply" and "it is not good for man to be alone."

Why would it matter when the bible was written? Right and wrong doesn't change. Mankind continues to rationalize or redefine what wrong is, but the passage of time doesn't make anything less "wrong". The question comes down to - how does any person decide what is right/wrong or even if there is a right/wrong.

If I accept that God defines what is right/wrong, that is my choice. If someone choose beliefs that are contrary, that does not afford them the right to attack me and express hate towards my beliefs and those who share them.

What do you refer to in saying "society has progressed and mateured past some of it's [the bible's] teachings"?

Like you, I agree that God created all of us. If that alone resulted in us all doing what is right, then there would be no sin or evil in the world. He gives all of us the choice to choose him or not; to choose to good or evil.
