You answered about 1/6 of my whole argument. Shows how much you care for your beliefs. I'm sure God loves that. Or maybe you're just a troll, who knows?

God is a complete fuckwad. Look at him in the OT. I don't care if it doesn't apply to today, that shit happened. He just went on a murder spree. Unless you're one of those "metaphorical" jackasses in which case you have no right to claim what your god does because it's MeTaPhOrIcAl. God might as well be a donkey holding a tea pot with a giraffe's tongue speaking the C language since it's MeTaPhOrIcAl.

Eve? Oh, Eve didn't exist. That's a MeTaPhOr for how vaginae can take a pounding.

Jesus? Oh, Jesus didn't exist. That's a MeTaPhOr for how you should crucify Jews.

Those "metaphorical" Christian are so goddamn inconsistent and happy-go-lucky that it pisses me off more than a literal Christian. At least their beliefs are solid, and at least you can look them up and say, "Oh, it says it right there! Go figure!" But not with the "metaphorical" Christians, who believe in different things per person, just ** up the actual meaning of the Bible in the first place. Bunch of inconsistent **, if you ask me.

Eve didn't exist. She was a character in a primeval history story(first five stories in bible)
It's not a metaphor for how a **** can take a pounding...the whole point of that story was to show god created earth and how humans srcrewed up the world...

Jesus did exist. He isn't a metaphor. He was fully human. There are historical records apart from what's in the bible that accounts for the life of Jesus. You're a complete ignorant dipshit if you don't believe he was real. Not necessaril divine, but he was obviously real.

There's no proof for Eve or Jesus, and if Eve doesn't exist then there's no way to prove Jesus did since the Bible isn't wholly trustworthy in your case. And what I said was an example. Of course it isn't about the goddamn **, you stupid **.

Eh, prove it. But you can't, or you'll bring up some ****, 100% CHRISTSHUN~`~!!!11! website with "proof" (AKA not proof at all) that Jesus "existed". Oh and I'm the dipshit...look son, that was a poor insult in the first place. You didn't even insult me personally, that was just some superficial shit that they make the bullies on children's TV shows say. "Ew, you stupid FREAK." "God you're such a weird GEEK." "You're so STUPID." Christ, learn to insult. And no he wasn't obviously real. There ain't no proof, son, as I've prematurely disproved.

Look, it's either take it all literally or take it all metaphorically. Otherwise it doesn't make sense because then you can just choose what to take metaphorically or literally and Christianity will have MORE sub-religions than it already does.

And that wasn't my argument you stupid **** Jesus freak. My argument was that not everything that's natural is good, because that was YOUR argument.

i dont really feel like arguing a lot on this topic and clogging up my notifications from replies, so instead, ill tell you why i oppose it and you can take it however you want to...
First
1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
2. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman, as instructed in the Bible.
3. Marriage is sacred, so it seems as though gay marriage, and the Kardashians, are making a mockery of it.
4. The main idea of marriage is to bond a man and woman spiritually as well as physically, usually resulting in the production of a child. I am not saying couples without children are wastes, as not all people have vocations to have children. Obviously same sex couples are incapable of continuing the creation of life.
5. It seems as though homosexuality is more like a luxury, brought by a culture that views sex too casually
i realize it's probably easier to argue for same sex, more likely for it legal

My responses for why gay marriage should be legal:
1. Ever heard of Separation of Church and State?
2. Ever heard of Separation of Church and State?
3. Gay marriage is just as sacred as a straight marriage. They're still just as committed as straight people are, a gay marriage isn't just a crazy goofy lustful relationship. It's just a regular marriage.
4. Maybe that's the natural way of controlling overpopulation? And what about people who are sterile? Are you saying they shouldn't be allowed to marry?
5. Homosexuality isn't any more casual about sex than heterosexuality! Why can't you understand that the attraction is exactly the same between heterosexual and homosexual couples?

Bottom line: If it doesn't hurt anyone, who are you to say it's not right?

That science research isn't any more credible than the Bible. Those findings aren't hard, solid proof. Likewise, there is no hard, solid proof that there is a God. You can look at nature and think to yourself, "Well science says that millions of years ago, a whole bunch of nothingness randomly exploded and created that tree," or you can think, "I really can't explain what created that tree. There must have been some intelligent, supernatural being behind it."

Why does it need to? Marriage is still seen as an imporant celebration, there are only a certain few who are 'ruining' marriage, but for most people it is something they onky hope to do once, with the person that they love. Whether it be two men, two women or a man and woman.
And those who are religious, do have the 'spiritual side' as an mporant oart of their wedding.
I see no reason to restore it.

You know, I could actually understand if you DID say that we were bad people. I hate most gays. I'd just consider it teenage ignorance, because **, most gays are annoying. ** them.

But no, apparently they're not bad. So you have no argument. You're just blatantly against equality and no there is no way around that. Bible or not, you are saying that a certain group of people don't deserve equality. That is precisely what you're saying.

And it would make MORE sense if you disapproved of gay marriage but supported equal rights, because **, gays suck. Okay. Good for you. But you support equality? Well, I guess you'll just avoid gays but you don't mind what the ** they do, regardless of your beliefs. All right, that's cool. I'd actually respect you for that.

But you don't, J_A_C_K(**). You're just another stupid teenager trying to please his stupid ** friends and parents by agreeing with whatever they say, no questions asked (really, how can you not question being anti-equality in a country that claims to be the entity of equality and freedom?).

Similarly, gays aren't being discriminated against just because they cant marry. In fact, it isn't anyone's right to be able to get married just by simply existing on the earth. It's a privilege that requires a deep understanding of the religious sacrament and the history behind it.

Ohh, so it's cool for gays to date, and have deep, meaningful, long-time relationships, but they can't get married. Thanks for clearing that up, that totally makes sense now.

You have every right to be against something that in no way, shape, or form affects you, but you have no right to fight against it.
America does not get its laws from the Bible. As for marriage being sacred, if it were really sacred, the government would have no say in it because of Thomas Jefferson's great idea of separation of church and state. Bonding people spiritually is also a religious issue. Though same sex couples cannot create more life, they can take in life that has already been created. Marriage would help foster a more stable home for the adopted children. Homosexuality has always been around. When more people were prudes about sex, more people hid their homosexuality, but now there is little need to hide it, making it seem like there are more gay people than there used to be. And it being a luxury? Ha! You trying being gay in Alabama and see how much of a luxury you think it is.

I would just like to say that while, yes, marriage often was religious-affiliated and meant for men and women, it doesn't have the same meaning it used to. Nowadays, you get benefits (certain ones regarding social security, health insurance, and tax and immigration laws) that you can't get without marriage. A civil union will allow for some benefits, but not nearly enough. Also, marriage allows for protection of a relationship from outside interference. This ensures that if your husband or wife is in the hospital for any reason, you can visit them. Without being married, you need to be family or have permission from the family. So if you're gay and your partner is in the hospital dying, you will not be allowed to visit them (and this does happen often enough).

To get away from the religious aspect, gay marriage isn't really a new thing. It HAS been practiced throughout history. Professor William N. Eskridge's research of Native Americans shows that certain tribes exhibited men marrying other men and vice versa. He also notes that homosexual relationships were common between men in ancient Greece, and Nero, the Roman Emperor, had a formal wedding with Sporus, his male companion

I have no problem with christianity or any religion for that matter. Religion helps people all over in many ways, but it also causes many unnecessary deaths. It really just comes down to how a person interprets it. Sometimes it'll make someone a better person, and other times not so much. But I'm just saying this so you know I don't have some sort of bad view on religion or christianity specifically, so I'm not biased.

If you don't agree with gay marriage, that's perfectly alright because that is your belief. I just don't think someone's beliefs should impose of the rights of others. If gay marriage doesn't affect you, and you're not the one having it, there should be no problem letting someone else go through with it.

Regarding your first point:

Leviticus 19:19: "You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together."

Leviticus 11:10: "But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you. (In addition to shellfish, Leveticus 11 also bans eating camel, rock badger, rabbit, eagle, vulture, buzzard, falcon, raven, crow, ostrich, owl, seagull, hawk, pelican, stork, heron, bat, winged insects that walk on four legs unless they have joints to jump with like grasshoppers (?), bear, mole, mouse, lizard, gecko, crocodile, chameleon and snail.)

1. So should pre-marital sex, idols, alcohol, etc. all be banned by law? Also, define "offenders". Couldn't the term "homosexual offenders" mean that a homosexual man is to be treated as a heterosexual man if he is found guilty of a crime? That is, "homosexual offenders" refers to "offenders who are homosexual", rather "guilty of homosexuality".

2. Leviticus 19:19 states that we shouldn't wear clothes from more than one fabric. Should that be illegal, "as instructed in the Bible"?
Leviticus 19:27 states that you shouldn't cut your hair or shave. Should that be illegal, "as instructed in the Bible"?
Leviticus 20:10 states that if a man cheats on his wife, or vice versa, the man and the woman must both be killed. Should that be upheld, "as instructed in the Bible"?

If you are going to use the Bible to support your arguments, use it consistently. Don't be hypocritical. If you use the argument "the Bible states...", use it for every word in the Bible, not the ones that suit your argument.

3. Firstly, what a huge generalisation.
Secondly, "It seems as though...". There's a solid argument. Where's your evidence? Example? And why are the Kardashians allowed to marry, then?

4. The "main idea" of marriage is to celebrate love. Also, marriage has no bearing on the ability to reproduce. If they aren't going to reproduce when they aren't married, how is that going to be even remotely different than if they are, except for the face that they can officially celebrate their love, and will probably be happier?

5. A "luxury!"? Homosexuals are discriminated against based on something that is quite trivial, and has no bearing on anyone else but themselves, and their romantic interests. It's not something they have control over.
How could you consider such discrimination, judgement and abuse over something they cannot control a "luxury"? Last time I checked, a luxury hotel, for example, was not a hotel that caused a person to suffer abuse and discrimination. And casual sex occurs at an alarmingly high rate amongst the straight community. Does that mean all marriage should be banned, as our culture now "views sex too casually"?

And it's easier to to argue for same sex because there are so many reasons why it should be allowed, and so few legitimate arguments.
The only legitimate arguments also affect the straight community as well, rendering them void.

No, the media, television magazines all portray these teenagers getting pregant and everything as if it's okay just to go around having sex with everyone. Sex should be a sacred act, committed by a man and a woman who are married, ready for the responsibility of having children. It doesnt mean marriage should be banned, it means it should be held to a higher regard and telivision shows shouldnt just constatnly make sex seem like a casual occurrence, therefore influencing the you into thinking that it's cool to go and have a kid when your 16 or whatever..

You just changed your argument.
You went from homosexuality comes from society viewing sex too casually, to the media encouraging casual sex, causing young teenagers to become pregnant.
Contradiction, much?
I agree with your point about the media downplaying the significance of sex. I do believe it's a big deal, and should only be done in a loving and committed relationship (married or not, I don't believe is relevant). But again, the average age for becoming sexually active decreasing plays no role in your argument against homosexuality. Thus, your point is irrelevant.

Marriage is not "vital for survival". In your scenario of an "up and coming species", those men who have children for survival probably would not want to get married to these women they feel no sexual connection with. If they were to have children, they would probably still "hook up with guys all night". Or, more likely, participate in a loving and committed relationship with another man.

You also ignored several of my points.

If you disagree with it, good for you. But I don't believe you, or anyone else, including the church, has the right to decide what's "right" and "wrong", in such circumstances

Jack, as a fellow Christian, I'll say that I've been taught the same way as you in school, but the same year I (had to) take a Christian Morality course, I also took AP U.S. Government... The fact is, there's a separation of Church and state... America is not a theocracy. Whether or not I agree with the issue itself (I'm 100% neutral), I think that, while a church may have its own laws for those who CHOOSE to follow said laws for their own well being, no ONE particular church should have a say in what the government laws are.

Society's changing at a rapid pace, and traditions, while important, are also changing rapidly as well, and shouldn't be forced upon people who are going with the times.

ONCE AGAIN, I'm saying this completely neutral of the issue itself. I'm just trying to explain a different point of view.

TV shows usually get around that by hiring actors and actresses to play teenagers that aren't actually teenagers. Most of them are in their early-mid 20's.

That's definitely true, but what about shows like Zoey 101? Jamie-Lynn Spears was only sixteen when that show ended, and there were countless episodes of her in a bikini in that show.

Hmm, I wasn't thinking of that. I guess the difference in that would be that Zoey101 was a show on Nickelodeon, and they didn't really make it into a sexual thing. The same goes for the girls on Disney. I dunno. That's my guess.

I honestly don't get what people have against gays, lesbians, bisexuals etc. etc. What does it matter to us what they do in their bedroom, let them live their life.

I completely agree with you about everything, but gays and lesbians don't just have sex all the time, like straight marriages. They love each other, too.

Whoops, I forgot to mention that too. :/
But yeah, love doesn't have a specific race, gender, ethnicity, language etc etc.
Love is universal. (l)

I'm not sure a bikini top is the same as a bra. And gay marriage and regular marriage are clearly not the same thing; one has a man and a woman, and the other has two of the same sex. So this post's wrong on at least two levels. But leave it to amirite to overwhelmingly endorse a post that in any way promotes gay marriage.

They are basically the same actually, I've used them interchangeably. And no two marriages are alike. Some are between white people, some between black, some racially mixed, some between people that love each other, some are arranged, some are the result of a reality TV show. But they are all technically the same thing, even if there are variables. So your logic was a bit faulty.

"Basically the same" implies they have differences. Second, "variables" are precisely what make things different from each other. An SUV is different from a Smart Car because of variables like size and engine, although they're both automobiles. In theory, gay and traditional marriage are the same in that they are a union of two people, but the two most essential components of their definitions (man-woman and man-man/woman-woman) are starkly opposed. Hence, they're different.

I know, but like I said all marriages are different. Why focus on gender but not race? Disagree with it all you want, but that logic doesn't work. It can be as simple as "I just don't like it" but when people try to rationalize why to other people it just doesn't work. Prejudice isn't rational, but to your credit it doesn't have to be. You can think what you want obviously.

Marriage is focused on gender and not race because it's an institution that historically has had procreation (which is limited to a male and female) as its central purpose. Race doesn't fit in anywhere in the definition or purpose of marriage.

Also, I'm not arguing that gay marriage is bad; I'm simply arguing that there's a fundamental difference between it and traditional marriage, namely, the genders of the parties involved in each marriage.

I was going to make an "in the closet" joke, but I realized that I don't know where women keep their bikinis. Presumably, they also keep their bikinis in their closet, rendering my joke pointless.

I get it now. You can have a gay marriage in public as long as you keep it under your shirt.

Good ****... hundreds posts later, I'm pretty sure that the amirite community supports gay marriage. It's like they're all reposts of "You support gay marriage, amirite?" because that's what they all pretty much ask...

I don't understand. Same sex marriage only affects the people getting married, so why should any one care.??

The reason wearing a bra at the beach is bad is because it doesn't have enough straps. True fact.

Don't know why gays aren't allowed marriage though... Maybe too many straps...(on)?

Simple solution: The sacrement of marriage will only be for opposite sex marriages, whereas non-sacremental marriage can include gay couples. By using religion to deny gay couples marriage, we might as well deny non-religious people marriage as they do not see it the same way and they wouldn't be married in the eyes of the Church anyways. The non-sacremental marriage itself should, in definition, be no more sinful for gay couples than for straight couples. And for those who argue that the sexual acts that gay people perform are sinful, it is important to note that marriage will not keep that from not occuring seeing as a lot of people don't wait for marriage anyways. Another point that I'd like to make is that how is it fair to keep gay people from any potentially defined sins, when straight people are allowed to commit these same sins? Gay marriage can have a lot more positives than negatives, such as the adopting of children (which I am all for them doing) and diminishing bullying towards homosexuals.

Just to add: I'd appreciate no replies debating whether it truly is sinful or not, as my phrasing wasn't to prove either point but rather to explain why, even if it was sinful, that should be no reason to deny it if it does not hurt anybody.
