As far as going to a church that hates gay people and taking a gay person along, I think that this is wrong. It is just flaunting his sexuality in their faces. If you do not believe that a particular place of worship is teaching the truth, then how can you participate?

As to polygamy, it is one thing to allow people to do it. It is entirely another thing to force a company to put multiple wives on a man's insurance. The benefits would destroy small companies unless we just throw out the whole private insurance thing and do socialized medicine.

As to wanting three husbands, OMG.
3 sets of dirty socks on the floor,
3 men that will not pitch in and do their part,
3 men trying to make my decisions and telling me what to do,
And worse of all
3 mother-in-laws!

No thank you.

Not fair. You gotta both post recent pictures. Who says some of us don't like older vintage anyway?

My father, whom I mentioned was a wise and kindly, well educated ordained minister was called upon to assist a church that had become divided over allowing homosexuals into the ministry. My father delivered a sermon to a now reduced congregation that knocked their socks off. In closing he asked the congregation if we were truly christian by denying these people a place in the church. He sent them home with something to think about. Several weeks later he was again requested to return to the church so the other half could hear his sermon. It was wonderful to learn the church had come together again and welcomed gays in the ministry and would welcome them in church.

The biggest thing about gay marriage is that "Marriage" has more bennefits than a "Cival Union". Gay people just want to be equal and have the same bennefits.

I am okay with people not agreeing with me... But I don't want them TELLING me to do something, or I am doing something wrong in my life.

Just the other day, I was walking around town, just walking down the street, holding my girlfriends hand and someone started calling out "Faggot!"

You can't even imagine how I felt... So embarresed! Ashamed! I wanted to go home and cry :( And yes I have had suicidal thoughts because of other people.. But my girlfriend squezzed my hand and smiled at me and said its okay... I almost cried because of the reliefe I got from 1 person! Just one saying everything is okay :)

I am still sensitive on the topic because a lot of people around me don't approve of me having a girlfriend... My own mother hates it...

Think about when non-horse people say all horse people are cruel and horrible... It makes you mad and not matter how much explaining you do, you can't make them stupid people understand! Some people you can educate... Now I just save my breath and walk away.

So just for people who don't agree with Homosexuality... Please be respectful! And polite.. It is okay to voice your oppinion but please don't say we are not human, that we do not deserve the same rights or to get married so we can be equal and have the same bennefits that Heterosexual people get to have.

And for people that are okay with Homosexuals, Thanks you :) Your support means a lot to me and others :) And I do believe one day all homophobia will be gone.

I also agree with the public displays of affection... I love to see people holding hands and giving small kisses, it just shows there is still love on this earth :) But I don't agree with inappropreit touching or making out in public. Also... religion gets brought up in almost every topic, but please try to leave it out as it does't have anything to do with the OP question.

Faceman I will bow to your challenge.
You look like Alfalfa from the Little Rascals with better hair of course.
I laughed at your earlier post about being a bleeding heart liberal.
The first time I have laughed in a few days. Thanks
I am impressed with the lack of hostility in this discussion.
RM if you want someone to accept you as you are ,and you should, you must also accept them. Even their negative beliefs about you.
Religion can be used to defend and condemn either side of this discussion.
It should never be used in hate though.
RM conduct yourself with pride and respect that will sway the beliefs of others more than anything else.
It is hard to discriminate against someone you know and like.
Be the change that you want to be in the world. Then pass it on. Shalom

Dbarabians, that picture is going to be a hard act to follow. Faceman was a cute little devil.

RM, I am sorry that people suck.
