... and is not just a character in a low budget sitcom.
I am treating it as a sitcom.

Faith quoting FRC writes:
At least two justices are disgusted by the Court's activism on marriage -- and they aren't afraid to show it.
So the two most activist judges on the court are disgusted by activism.
Who'd have thunk it?

You don't need chapter and verse, subbie, you know very well that homosexual acts are condemned in the Bible ...
Baking a cake is a homosexual act?

Re: Christian Tyranny
In any case when government starts actively violating the commandments of God, ...
Stop right there. This is anti-American bullshit.
Read the first amendment non-establishment clause. "Actively violating the commandments of God" does not fit with it.

Re: Christian Tyranny
Only according to today's revisionist dogma, not according to the Founders who very actively supported Biblical principles in the governing of the nation.
The revisionism is coming from the religious right. They are continually attempting to change history to read their theocratic values into it.

It seems that there has been another episode in this sitcom.
quote:
AL Supreme Court orders halt to same-sex marriage licenses
MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) -
The Alabama Supreme Court handed down a special ruling Tuesday, ordering a stop to the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses by probate judges.

I happen to care about the condition of society itself, not just my own little life, which has never been a part of my thinking on this.
Society is doing just fine, except for the religious right who are out of touch with reality.

Mind rape is the social consequence that probably bothers me most, as in the substitution of a fantasy about marriage and sex and family, in place of reality.
So "mind rape" is the technical term for what the religious right has been doing.
Interesting.

The fantasy is clearly in the attempt to treat a homosexual couple as the same as a heterosexual couple, which truly I would think anyone would recognize, and in fact it HAD been recognized universally up until quite recently, as I also said.
With same sex unions allowed, marriage will be very different from what it was 2,000 years ago.
Without same sex unions allowed, marriage will still be very different from what it was 2,000 years.
Things have changed greatly over the last two millenia. That you haven't noticed is the real fantasy here.

No, marriage did not change over the last two millennia at all, up until a little over half a century ago, when it started falling apart in the west under the onslaught of Cultural Marxism / Political Correctness.
That gave me a good laugh. But you are completely out of touch with reality.
I see that jar has answered in detail. I'll put your post down to self-deception. You have somehow managed to convince yourself, in spite of all of the evidence to the contrary.
You "blame" the changes on "Cultural Marxism / Political Correctness." I think you would do better to credit the cultural changes to the moral teachings of Jesus. It's a pity that the religious right in America have abandoned those moral teachings.

I just answered jar. He is bringing up irrelevant incidentals and he's including things from BEFORE 2000 years ago, missing the whole point.
Yes, you are right. Nothing has changed about marriage, with the exception of everything.
But those changes are all mere incidentals. So they don't count.
But, looked at that way, same sex marriage is just another mere incidental. It's no different from Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson sharing an apartment. It's no different from Jesus hanging out with a dozen male disciples.
So you should be able just adapt to another mere incidental.

Marrying anybody other than heterosexuals changes the entire concept of marriage.
It doesn't change anything that should matter to government or to the courts.
