Re: and another thing
Remember that you had made the ridiculous statement that a "stable marriage" was good for children as if a gay couple pretending to be a normal married couple could by getting "married" provide that kind of stability. That is an outrageous absurdity of a pretense, compared to which being aunts or uncles is far preferable IMO. I think it far better to be "aunts" and "uncles," or whatever title you prefer, rather than a gay couple pretending to be man and wife raising children as if they really were a family. It wouldn't help to be "honestly" gay either IMO. Just be two men or two women friends or uncles or aunts.

The whole gay marriage thing is a complete farce, all for the purpose of playing to false pretenses. The whole LGBT thing is the same farce as a matter of fact. People wanting and pretending to be what they aren't to satisfy some weird need that came from who knows where.

Re: SCOTUS refuses to hear about "gay wedding cakes"
I would have expected you to know this but I guess you don't. The behavior of great men of the Bible in having many wives was forbidden but they did it anyway. They were sinners, at odds with God who decreed one man, one woman for marriage. THAT's the tradition I have in mind. The man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife....

Re: SCOTUS refuses to hear about "gay wedding cakes"
Are you a total atheist or do you have at least some vague expectation that you are going to have to answer to God for all the false stuff you say here?

Re: SCOTUS refuses to hear about "gay wedding cakes"
I have an "idealized" view of the biblical context? Knowing about all the polygamy and David's adultery and murder and so on? How about the incident in the book of Judges where a man's concubine was murdered and he dismembered her body and sent it in pieces around to all the tribes of Israel. You can't read the Bible without being struck by the enormity of the sins committed by God's own people and the horrors of everyday llfe with wars and more wars and murders and so on.

"Make America Great Again" is about restoring the nation to sanity after decades of M a r x ist attempts to destroy it, lyes about how evll it is when it's in fact the best nation that ever existed on this earth and so on.

A Rumanian pastor who was persecuted for years under a M a r x ist regime for his faith said in a darkly humorous vein: "As for the question when the Tribulation is going to happen, the rest of the world has been wondering when America is going to go through it since everybody else has been going through it for decades." The M a r x ists have been making progress in that direction for years now but under Trump we are getting a bit of a reprieve by God's mercy.

I don't consider those people "religious," they have a murderous ideology akin to The Third Reich or various murderous Communist regimes.

OK, but the fact is that Christianity is under attack these days from lots of angles and since it opposes gay marriage and treats homosexuality as a sin that includes the LGBT people. Certainly the law that requires us to accept gay marriage against our biblical viewpoint is hostile to Christianity. And certainly there are plenty of opinions expressed here at EvC that echo that same hostility.

ABE: And come to think of it, any expression of hostility to Islam is hardly ever expressed here or in any public discussion for that matter, so your comment is unusual.

I wish it were so but the fact seems to be that Islam has been growing in popularity since 9/11 instead of being challenged at all. They wouldn't accept gay marriage either, but it's only Christian businesses that have been challenged by that law, and it's pretty clear that gay activists have sought out those businesses in at least some of the cases. I'm sure they could find a way to challenge Muslims if they wanted to but so far that isn't happening.
