Read a fictional book written 2000 years ago that has been rewritten many times throughout the years. No thank you. You may want to live your life following an outdated belief system but more and more people are waking up and realizing they don't need your "god" to live their lives anymore

If the Bible is outdated, then all of the Ten Commandments no longer apply. Therefore, stealing is OK, because I said so. Free everyone from prison who has committed armed robbery. After all, most armed robbers are poor, and they might have been born with a predisposition to steal, so theft and armed robbery are OK. If you disagree, then you are a judgmental bigot trying to impose your religion and your god on us.

Actually, homosexuality and its supporters are just as much a religion as any other, and you are trying to impose your religion on society by forcing it to accept something that is a lie.

People are smart enough to come up with laws without the need of the ten commandments. You are a child

I didn't say it but God did. Marriage is between a man and woman. It is an abomination in the sight of the Lord. Call me a bible thumper if you wish but that beats shaking hands with the old ugly devil. Again I didn't make the rules, almighty GOD did. Take it up with him if you have a problem with it.
Your Bible also says that a woman that's not a virgin that tries to marry should be dragged to her father's doorstep and stoned to death in front of him so that he can share in her public shame.

It's also VERY clear about rape victims being forced to marry their rapists or they will be cast out.

How about Jesus' VERY CLEAR admonitions against divorce?? Are you as all over hating on divorcees as you are on the gays??

It also says that you should put your children to death if they talk back to you. Sound good??

Are you all about those, too?? Or is it just the gays that you choose to hate? Jesus would be so proud.

Yep! He always says that people that judge others and spread hate and intolerance among his children are damned to hell, too.

I guess you're well on your way, too, huh??

If you continue to preach your Bible to me, I'll have to start preaching "The Joy of Cooking" to you. And I'll have the upper-hand because MY book is based in reality. Yours is not.

What a kind and loving "christian" you are! Jesus would be SO proud!!

You're also amazingly stupid and childish. Do you believe the 10 Commandments are the ONLY basis for people knowing right from wrong?? Do you believe that without them people wouldn't be able to figure out that stealing and murder are wrong??

Wow. That's really stupid. You must believe that everyone is as foolish as you.

My husband and I were married in California in 2008. We lived in New York when the legislature enacted same sex marriages there, and we look forward to the day Michigan and the Federal Government recognize our marriage. Not having recognition has never reduced our marriage or commitment to one another. But it does jeopardize our rights (medical decisions, insurance, housing, adoption joint custody) and cost us thousands of more dollars on taxes each year.
