@SweetRose2011:

 

I agree with the article, and I appreciate you posting it. I find it so sad that people use God’s name to judge and hate people. It also explains why so many good Christians have become so disenchanted with church recently. I find it so hard to sit through a sermon when I see so much hypocrisy in church. 🙁 Jesus would definitely not approve of what his faith has turned into.

I’m Christian. I support gay marriage.

Jesus teaches to love one another, Christians hating on gays are not demonstrating “Christian behavior”.

The Bible, while inspired by God, was written by PEOPLE. People are biased, no matter how hard they try not to be. There were multiple versions of nearly all the books of the Bible, the versions selected, and even the books selected, were picked by humans.

God loves everyone. Let Him make the call, not us humans.

And religious beleifs cannot and should not be legislation. Those are two seperate topics, for us to have religous freedom we must also be tolerant of others.

“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone  at her.” John 8:7

I think the most important thing that needs to be kept in consideration is, as the article said, the United States is governed by the Constitution, not the Bible. Either everyone one be granted “marriage” or everyone be granted “domestic partnership” while allowing the Church to perform “marriages” according to its beliefs as long as in the end, everyone has the same federal rights. Baptism isn’t state regulated, so maybe “marriage” shouldn’t be either. But, that’s my opinion.

@JoesWifey: I completely agree.

I also would like to add, that while this article was insightful one should be very careful in aligning followers of a religion and the doctrine itself. The views of “the church” does not represent what every Christian believes in and while the hearts of men ( and yes this includes some christians) can be desperately wicked and deceitful ( as the bible says) the hyprocrisy is found in humans and not in the bible, which never waivers.

That’s my two cents as a Christian.

Wow…that is so well-written.  If Christian leadership embraced tolerance, the rest of Christians would follow.  Thanks for posting!

For REALS. I’d say this is my #1 issue with Christianity, being a Christian myself…living in a very conservative area with such a bible thumping father.

I’d be completely okay having a “domestic partnership” with my man-life-partner since we didn’t get married in a church.
