    So Christlike of the National Organization of Marriage. Lets whip up racial tensions towards gays! Thats what Jesus would do to keep equal familiar rights ways from gays and their children! /sarcasm

    Wow. I knew they were evil but this goes way beyond evil. "Let's get two groups of people to hate each other." Holy ****!

    Here's my free marketing advice for the gays on this.

    Take old pictures of racist signs like no blacks allowed or colored drinking fountain. Change blacks or colored to gay. Win!

    It's already been done, some time ago actually. ;)

    Blacks and Latinos are already inclined to be against gay marriage due to religious participation. All they are doing is motivating them to actually vote. The black vote is likely what screwed gays over in California as 70% (the highest of any demographic) voted to ban gay marriage while voting for Obama.

    And the formerly oppressed have become the oppressor.

    Did you look at when this was implemented? 2008 elections mean anything? And look at the language used I mean, "drive a wedge between..."? Really? That's a lot more than getting someone to vote. That's encouraging animosity and hatred. And these people claim to be Christian? This is disgusting, zombie. And it is not defensible.

    Stating that the Religious are Christians is a bald-faced lie, I think you will agree Lee.

    This has been shown to be false - its a false poll NOM very much wants you to repeat.

    Blacks, maybe. Latinos though, no. Not at the same rate. Although we have the infection of "religion" to thank for that. Religion is fine, but leave it in the church and leave it to the individuals. It should not be used to enshrine laws into being in the US for the simple reason we are not a theocracy and there is more then just one religion practiced in this country.

    Might I remind you too, that Mexico City legalized same sex marriage quite a while ago. I have many latino friends, and they are all for same sex marriage.

    I believe that NOM is so blinded by their hatred of gays, that they would make a pact with devil. :(
    I have heard that there is a link to anti gay feelings and laws in Africa, and rise in fundamental christian groups out of the USA?

    Yes, that's what I meant by the infection of religion. The American "christian" anti-gay views are not only being spread in the USA, but also abroad in Africa through missionary outreach programs. Like a virus. It's easier for them to shape things the way they want without those pesky American laws and politics getting in the way.

    Oh yes, they have. Some have backed laws requiring the death penalty for gay people. Trust me, that is their ultimate goal for this country as well. They just know they can't get away with it here.

    I'm going to kidnap and hog tie these people and explain to them what the Bible REALLY says.

    Maybe then these idiots will wake up and realize they're not to be hating or judging anyone and being gay is really OK! (If it wasn't God wouldn't make gay people!). Do they really think God would be proud of their hatred, bigotry, and malice towards others???

    Not to mention no where does it say "marriage is between a man and a woman" so I still don't understand why marriage isn't an equal right for all. (Not to mention separation of Church and state!)

    By that logic if god didnt want people brutally murdered he wouldnt create murderers and thus god willingly allows and enjoys people being brutally murdered.

    If god existed he would be the biggest piece of **** ever.

    None of this is surprising in any way. People are crazy.

    I'm not going to turn this religious, my original post was aimed at the religious nuts who twist what the Bible says and make the rest of us look bad. (I'm a Christian who is 100% for gay marriage and if I were a preacher I'd do ceremonies for gay people).

    Also I was talking about uncontrollable things, murders can choose not to murder someone, gay people cannot chose to be straight.

    Odd way to put it, but not exactly correct. One is not a murderer until one has committed a murder. That is the only distinction between a murderer and and one who is not – this also holds for the theology that places sin in the heart instead of the act: if you earnestly desire to commit a murder and are held up against the sin-in-the-heart doctrine, you must be considered a murderer as opposed to a person who has never had such a desire.

    Once "murderer" applies to you, it cannot ever not apply to you, even with absolution. The act (or desire) defines an aspect of who you are. Thus, given the occasion, a murderer (as defined by a prior sin) does indeed have the ability to choose whether or not to murder again.

    The real question is not whether gays can choose (some people, like bi's, really can choose) but whether homosexuality is in fact sinful. It would be interesting to find out how many people truly consider it a sin and whether circumstance or logic might convince them to adopt a different position.

    You could say, being Devil's Advocate, that murderers can choose whether to act on their murderous instincts or to remain "non-practising murderers"...
