This person should be locked up or what exactly? Freedom of speech?
Freedom of religion?
Wanting to protect his or her kids?
Being offended at being a called names and abused for months on end?
Getting fed up?

You need to get out of your little circle of church friends and realize there is a whole world out there that doesn't think exactly like you do. Your thoughts, opinions and beliefs are not the only ones out there.

Just as some people are tired of hearing about gay people are wanting rights, there are people that are tired of being denied those rights and having religion crammed down their throats.

This isn't a bad person, this is a person responding to being abused by Christians and christian ideology

Not a single person that calls themselves Christian, has acted in a Christian way towards this person. What do you expect?

So because your beliefs say it's an abomination, I should be locked up?

Then you better read EVERYTHING the bible calls an abomination, cause I bet you'd be on the gallows or stoning block right there with me. Everybody that is alive today has done something that your bible calls an abomination! In fact, isn't NOT JUDGING in there somewhere?

There is no law against homosexuals marrying. Our beliefs say marriage is between husband and wife. We know same sex marriage is taboo. Tough love, truth.

You can judge by the arguments taken from scripture. You can make your own decisions, without fear or allowing sympathy to overcome common sense.

There are millions of arguments against same sex marriage, religion is just one.

Call it something else. If you want recognition within the legal system then make up your own word for same sex union. Quit trying to redefine marriage. This will never be Normal to me and I wish the gays would stop trying to convince me otherwise. This is a free country and I do not have to agree with you.

Not agreeing with you is not being judgmental. The difference between sin, which everyone has and will do and rebellion against GOD are two very different things. When you choose to live a life that you know contradicts GODS will, without asking for forgiveness and repentance you are living in rebellion against GOD. Imagine turning your TV on and every other show you see has some reference or depiction of beastiality or pedophillia. Hopefully these things are not appropriate for you. I would bet you would be outraged. Welcome to the way Christians view homosexuality.

and how exactly is it noble and prideful for man to want to reduce a woman to something he can stick it in. its just as much based on selfish urge and physical desire.

that book gives every two bit nobody more power and authority than they were ever meant to have based on their qualifications alone, they misuse that book to try and justify gossip and busybody behavior.

That book was written after marriage was created between husband and wife. It was written to uphold social norms.

Same sex marriage is still taboo.

a far more important concern is the number of child offenders in the community, those are agressive criminals who force their taboo interests onto others.

its not my place to suggest church people visit the Texas Dept of Public Safety website to look at all the names, pictures, addresses and crime details of child molesters in the community.

it would probably be beneficial for the general public to have an active working knowledge of what is really important to the safety and well being of their children.

attention by severity of concern should be applied

What do you gain by denying two people who love each other the chance of being married? What do you lose by supporting it? Honestly the fact that everybody is bringing the bible and religion into this is ridiculous. If you wanna say gays can't marry, then anyone who works on Sunday should clearly be put to death according to the book of Exodus. Also, anyone who plants different crops side by side should be stoned by the entire town. And if my friends or family happen to wear clothes made from two different threads. I should burn them? Leave your flawed religion out of it and give these people a chance at happiness.

We gain social stability by not radically changing social rules to satisfy sexual predilection. We reinforce democracy by not letting activist judges write marriage law. We protect civil discourse by not letting them set the bounds, calling names and saying, this is right so it's settled.

We provide for children by having an ideal social institution so kids can live in a stable home with their mom and dad.

You people are pathetic. Referring to homosexuals as "the gays" like it's contagious or something. We might at well start classifying people by their hair color. BLONDES ARE DECENDANTS OF GOD AND GINGERS ARE THE SPAWNS OF SATAN. that might make more sense to some people. It's truly sad to see how much hate is coming from the so called hardcore Christians. I'm a strong believer in my faith and a lesbian. SO SUCK ON THAT!
