  • Well if you're saying we're doomed because it goes against your religious beliefs then toooooo bad because america is the country of religious freedom. It would go completely against our freedom if we made gay marriage ilegal just because one religion is against it

    • Doesn't it go against freedom to put down the beliefs of one group of people so others can express theirs.
      Seems like hypocrisy to me.

    • Thats like if one religion said "It is a sin to eat pizza" and they made pizza illegal for everyone in the country. Its not putting a religion down. I don't understand why religious people even have to worry if other people are sinning or not. If they're sinning or they don't believe in God then that's their problem, not yours.

  • I don't know why people are stressing so. much about this. Gay marriage is legal for a really long time in the Netherlands and we're not fucked up either. It was time you guys finally legalized it.

    • But then why should gay marriage be illegal? Let people who want to sin sin.

    • Asker, would you stop eating beef just because Hindus believe it is a sin? No of course not. You're all about people respecting the rules of christianity and don't think about anyone else.

  • Why does it bother you for religious that people of other sexual orientations can get married?

    Getting married on legal grounds will not in any way concern you. All religious institutions like the Christian church will still have the way to turn away requests to conduct marriages on the grounds that they're not between a woman and a man.

    • But it's a sin, you people are making a mockery of my beliefs and then ask why is it bothering me.

    • are you beliefs in marriage, or Christianity as a whole then? It's not like this change in law will take away your right to marry, so I'm not sure why you're making this a concerns of yours.
      Seems pretty backwards that 'because of your beliefs', other people should be forbidden to do as they please within reason, even though it affects you in no way.

    • Very classy. Making fun of my god and beliefs to get back at me.

    • Religion doesn't give you the right to be a dick.

    • And just a casual reminder that Jesus preached love. As soon as he came around, the Old Testament became invalid for Christians. Learn your catechism. You're being shown up by an atheist.

  • I'm a Christian and I know that I shouldn't judge nor condemn any because I don't have a right to.

    As a Christian, I want to help people (good people, though, and innocents. I have an issue that should be dealt with about not wanting to help repulsive irrational people) so I wouldn't EVER want to restrict other people's rights while enjoying something they cannot. That is wrong to me.

    I notice that a lot of people like you don't put themselves in the opposite situation. How would you feel if someone restricted your rights based off of their beliefs? There are people in America who don't want interracial marriages to happen and that is just as disgusting as imposing your beliefs onto someone just because you don't "agree" with what they do.

    Why are you in their bedroom anyway? Would you like someone to invade your sex life and make it headline news?

    • I never said I hated them, they are a committing a sin and instead of guiding them to a righteous path we are doing the exact opposite and encouraging them.

    • Exactly!!
      Why even post a question like this
      Keep your hateful thoughts to yourself
      Some people are more focused on the politics of their religion than being kind and focusing on their own relationship with God.

    • Expressing my beliefs equals to hateful thoughts now? Religion isn't just about your relationship with god; its a way of living. The bible doesn't talk about sins and homosexuality just for fun you know.

  • Pretty sure you're not doomed. If it's the God of the Bible you're worried about, He allegedly judges people only for their own transgressions. Why would he punish you for another couple's marriage? Not sure why people are convinced that one nation's step towards equality is going to damn their individual souls to hell. There is zero logic in that.

    • As a christian it is my duty to guide those who have sinned to a righteous path.

    • People scared of change, both religious and agnostic, exhibited similar concern when our country ended slavery, when women were given the right to vote, and when the Mormons built the city of Nauvoo. Now gays are being allowed to put rings on each other's fingers. Freedom and equality for all? The horror! Surely our country wasn't truly meant to be... free. Was it?

      I do respect your opinion, so I should try to curb my sarcasm, and for that I apologize. You have the freedom to be close-minded just like they have the freedom to marry the person they love. I am a follower of Christ, and I am not gay. I read the Bible. I have no reason to support their push for equality; no real agenda. It just seems to me that the actions of Christ, as far as we know them, always pointed towards love, acceptance, and forgiveness. Nothing else. Not judging, not hating, not excluding, not oppression. The words of the Bible have been translated and edited and revised many times over thousands of years, so...

    • Bottom line, I don't see marriage as a sin. I see it as a bond, a covenant, and promise between two people who love each other and want to build a family. How that would offend God baffles me a little.

  • Nope, this country is moving forward and that a good thing.

    • Same sex marriage is a sin, you can't ask me to love something that goes against my religion.

    • Im not asking you to love it but Im asking you to at least show a little respect. And again, only your God can judge remember, by being so resentful and judgmental you are going against your own religion as well.

  • I feel that it's wrong because God does not agree with it. I'm not judging anyone but I believe in the word of God (The Holy Bible) Being gay is a choice. This world is full of sin and no one is perfect but by God's grace and love we can turn away from sin if we ask Jesus for forgiveness. This world is going down hill very fast. I pray people will see the light and except Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Jesus loves you!

  • NO we are not doomed. Is Canada doomed for having gay marriage legal for like 10 years? Is Massachusetts doomed from having it legal since 2004? NO! Our lives will go on as per usual for the sheer fact that gay marriage doesn't influence any of our lives. You don't like gay marriage? Then don't marry someone of the same gender. Live your life as you did yesterday. It's crazy to me how many people care so much about what people do with their lives with other consenting adults.

  • Gay people have been living together for a long loong time. So Basically we just gave them rights for example: to adopt a kid so that it may have a loving family and I know gay people who are the best parents ever, why? because they will be afraid of prosecution and they have fought for this right for decades.

    Christianity is the worlds stupidest religion along side all other Arabian religions why? they are intolerant as hell and IF same sex marriage upsets you but discrimination against a person just becaus eof something they can't help makes you no better than a racist so suck it up and accept the fact that there is finally EQUAL rights. cause merica!

  • Look man, I know you're being serious with some of your responses so I'm going to be serious with you.

    First off, legal marriage just as any other law we currently live under is man made, not made by God (to whoever believes in the Jewish/Christian God). What that means is that God has no inference to the laws of men, as men live by free will.

    Second, the Bible predicts something called "period of apostasy" which means that societies will turn their backs against Spirituality, God, and their own human morals which will happen anyways, just as corruption of churches which is a ship sailed way long ago (again, to anyone who believes in Jewish/Christian God).

    Now, you can be outspoken about your beliefs and you have total right to not agree with it, but by making a question saying stuff like "we are all going to hell" and bullshit like that you are not only ridiculing yourself, but also others who believe in the same spiritual/moral system. My 2 cents...

I could safely sat that a good people would have chosen the first category because it sounds hilarious :D

  • Have you never heard of the separation of church and state? Marriage is something government shouldn't be meddling with anyway.

    From a civil standpoint, people need to be able to declare their family associations, so you know who can see you in a hospital and who gets your stuff when you die. This should be arbitrary and completely outside the realm of the church.

    Marriage, however, should be a function of the church and have nothing to do with the state.

      Lev. 20:13, "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them."
      1 Cor. 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
