True, murder is something else. I'm only talking about being punished for standing on God's word as we always have, as Christians always have for two thousand years. Poor poor America to criminalize us for that, because God won't put up with it for long.
What does it do while still "putting up"? It is just so bittersweet to observe the horrible state of affairs that devout christians have been put to. From all-powerful to equal, from judgmental to neutral and from vicious to tame. Boo-effing-hoo.
I was pleasantly surprized altogether - hoping that this decision would in a way cement the USA's stance of "...and liberty for all" but then I made a mistake of visiting...let's say apparently not very progressive websites on my google-led journey through the internets.
The vitriol is totally and utterly incomprehensible. I knew that there might be people who are a bit peeved that their bigotry cannot continue but boy was I in for a shock. People of "The Good Book" came across as anything but - while I do know that there are compassionate Christians - even so that they are good human beings - the utter and relentless hate and evil portrayed by the commenters of theblaze.com are beyond my capability to understand.
I dare say that if they in any way form or fashion represent the Evangelical American, they are pretty close to those of ISIS. Full of hate and venom and NOTHING even remotely good or decent. Huh huh!!
Anyway, I'm happy that a person as "conservative" as Judge Kennedy can write such striking and compassionate statement.
I think it's mostly the LOUD Christians who are protesting. If it wasn't gay marriage, they'd find something else for their doom-and-gloom-saying. It has nothing to do with religion, morality, etc. It's just a pathological need to be LOUD.
Could be - OTOH their religion nor the presumed morality doesn't seem to set any boundaries to how vile a human being can be towards another. Au contraire - the fact that they have for so long been the bullies and told others how to live their lives just goes to show, if nothing else, that faith nor religion do not make a better man.
I don't see how. How does a gay person getting married effect your marriage?
Apparently my marriage that has lasted for 21 yrs now is somewhat void and worthless (we are just oblivious to that fact)
In all honesty, I just cannot comprehend how the expansion of legal marriages would threaten heterosexual marriages. Are peeps telling that Jill and Jack, though they love each other and want to create a family together, would decide against it because somewhere else Jack and John can decide alike?
