I just don't support gay marriages, people can do what they like but doesn't mean I have to agree with it. My nine year old son saw this topic on the news last night and asked me why are two men kissing and I had to explain to him what gay meant. That's not something I ever thought I would have to explain to my nine year old.

I think it's a bunch of people just wanting to get in the news. I don't support gay marriage and neither do the vast majority of my friends. I do support gays having rights as to healthcare decisions, insurance, pension and retirement benefits and inheritance...they deserve the same rights as everyone else in these matters.

You rednecks said all the same BS back in the late 60's when they made mixed race marriages legal. All people deserve equal civil rights in this country...stop using your Bibles to excuse your bigotry.

Oh Glenda, Babe, If it was so bad, then why, why dear Glenda, did Jesus not bother mentioning homosexuality himself?

Like it or not, it is a natural biological occurrence. People don't choose to be gay any more than they choose to be black, white or mexican. If they want to be married, by all means let them. Live and let live.

Oh Joe, Dear, It is so bad, dear Joe. Our country is corrupt and has been making excuses for themselves for generations and generations and now it has finally gotten to where people believe that they can do no wrong. The Bible is a standard that should be followed as a law book. It has been around for longer than any book ever made, and why do you think that is?? It's true and accurate. The Bible does say homosexuality is wrong, as Brenda mentioned. Change it if you want, but you know what it says. How could you get anything out of that passage OTHER THAN it is wrong?! You are just like all the other millions of people who just try to interpret it "differently" and never take anything for what it actually means. This world is in for a rude awakening. No morals, whatsoever. There is no fear of God any more and in the end... they will pay. I'm not a saint, I'm not claiming to be by any means, but to make this a strong nation, which was once a Christian nation, we need to go back to the roots that got us started. We need to be a nation founded on God AND Godly morals. It would be a tough change and there is a lot of things about my lifestyle that I would have to give up personally, but it would be well worth it if the nation would be changed from it. I can only pray that will happen, but it can start with just one person. Hopefully, I pray, that I can begin that change.

Rednecks? Is that what conservative, Christian families have amounted to be these days? I'm sorry if we believe in something. Obviously anyone else (gay people, blacks, etc.) can have an opinion and it is politically correct, but if you have morals, then you are just "redneck"?? Good call.

this nation wasn't started by god fearing people with high moral. It was started by a bunch of thieves who came here to steal natural resources...herbs, spices, gold, silver, copper and land itself, from the poor indians who owned it. They raped and pillaged and stole the whole country enslaving the poor indians and later the blacks to do the dirty work of building a nation. Our founding fathers talked a good talk but they all owned slaves and their God didn't see either the slaves or the indians as equals.

As for Leviticus, it also condems clothing made of more than one fabric and it absolutely condems eating pigs. Read it sometime, it is a particularly fierce piece of work. According to what I read that bbq sandwitch or bacon and ham are just as big a sin as the mo's doing the dirty.

Oh really? What history books have you been reading? If it weren't for the people who brought over the slaves, when would the blacks have decided to come over here? They were intended to work the farms and help with labor. They had a better life than half of the ones that are in Africa now days. As I have heard/read, the slave owners were quite often friends with the slaves. They gave them home and shelter. And we learned things from the Indians like how to hunt and plant. If we took land from the Indians and it was "theirs", then why don't you take a stand for gays not intruding on our country?!? We started it. Gay lifestyles have not become a part of our country's lifestyle until recently and all Hollywood tries to do is push it on us. Over 70% of America disagrees with it, but it just keeps getting pushed on us. Why don't we just tell them to stay away or find another country to live in? Is that what the poor pitiful Indians should have told us??? And would you have agreed with that?

If you would read a little further, you would see that God changed the law and allowed people to start eating meat. Why do you think he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, by the way?

I see people, as always, interpret the Bible as they want it to read.....so I suppose God said no interracial marriages? God hates gays too....damn, God is a bigot.

Silverado, you wrote: my bible has the way of life wrote in it. who am i to believe, the bible or some gay person ?? i will take the bible over the gay person any time. it was correct in the 60's and it is correct now. do you know Jesus. give him a try, he's the real thing.

.......and guess what...thousands of gays make up our military too...they are fighting for your life while you deny them basic civil rights...how is that right?
It's not.

and MLaw...yes, that makes you a redneck.

MLaw, you posted a topic on Operation Restoring Honor and stated, "We were all created equally and everyone can be great..." Do you have special conditions to being created equal? Seems like it.

So are you actually condoning slavery? Yeah, owners fed, clothed and sheltered their slaves. But not because they loved them or were friends with them. They needed to take care of them because slave labor is what made their plantations profitable. It was the equivalent of taking care of your horses, mules and oxen. What good is a lame work animal? None. This can also be applied to today's illegal immigrants who do work for ridiculously low wages. What are your views on illegal immigrants?
