    Right? It was the southern Democrats that were for segregation. Check the record.

    More and more studies are coming out that homosexuality is a defect of the brain like autism. Really, Homosexuals should be protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act. They could also get funding to cure the problem.

    @LibertarianSocialist
    One does not need to wonder. Christians follow natural law, how God made things to work. One of the tenants of the faith is to be fruitful and multiply, the only natural way to do that is with a man and a woman. Anything else is just sex. Marriage comes into play to stabilize that natural relationship between a man and a woman so better raise children and give them a stable footing wile on the road to become adults.
    Now there is also a spiritual aspect of marriage. You ever notice that really old married couples look a lot alike? There is a spiritual joining of their souls through God, and through the marriage act their souls intertwine and become one. This is why there is so much emphasis put on marriage in religion. Leave God out of it and you are just 2 people F’ing, married or not.

    It also can go the other way that a good tradition can be changed if people have become morally corrupted. The “people as property” issue could have just as easily went the other way. Brush up on the Weimar republic if you want to see examples.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Hmm, so by changing the definition of marriage to “between 2 people” The 14 amendment simultaneously protects their privilege of marriage, unless it changes for everyone, and the free exercise of religion, which defines marriage between a man,woman, and God. Still though, marriage is a privilege under the eyes of the law, and can still be changed as long as it effects all people. Its time to start the push to get rid of the marriage laws in all 50 states.

    And what part of the Constitution would that be again?

  • [2] July 1, 2015 at 11:13am

    We dismissed the idea that people can be property with a constitutional amendment. The simple fact that the country was divided from the get go, and they compromised with the 3/5th clause, as to try and keep the slave holder states influence minimized. You can plainly see that a right to own a person was not part of the “traditional moral laws”.

    @ LS then what does that have to do with issuing licenses? The Court ruled that if a couple is issued a marriage license in one state all the other ones must recognize it. There still is no “right” to get married, never has been. A “right” does not need a license. In fact one of the ways that progressives are trying to take away our “Right to bare arms” is by forcing people to have a license.

    Well lets put this into context then. Lets say that you are married and you and wife/ husband own a housing construction company. Being a Christian you believe that to have relations with anyone other then your spouse is a mortal sin. Now the government comes in and makes this crazy rule that before the finial handover you must christen the house by having relations with one or more of the future occupants. By doing this you damn your soul to hell for all eternity. This is how they feel about gay marriage. Having gay relations is a sin. If they indorse something that their faith tells them is a damnable offense, they are just as guilty of that sin.

    The Bible is a guide on how to best live life. So it is creditable in any subject that pertains to actions taken through out life. It then has value in every subject as a base guide on how to perceive said subject. References to the bible put into the presentation was then helpful context on her view of the subject. Failing someone for their view is not permissible, teacher failed. Simple.

    #1 the stats you reference do not include where in the US those homicides come from. They are primarily in gun restricted large cities.
    #2 The reason that we haven’t had another country use a nuke is because we have them also…. same as with a gun they are going to be more hesitant to use one if they know they could be shot themselves. Then you have the crazy ppl who just don’t care AKA, Iran. You are not going to give a gun to someone who is proven to be mentally unstable.
    #3 The element of surprise will have the advantage only for the first shot.The solution there is: multiple ppl with guns. He will get the first shot off and maybe a second. Having a trained CCL holder with a gun is going to shoot better then most. Now if they were open carrying, then he would probably just walked away. Spent an hour in there checking it out.
    #4 READ THE WHOLE THING!!!!!! It makes sense if you don’t split it up. The people, to protect against a tyrannical government or out side invading force, must have the access to buy the same arms as the military, with no restrictions. There is no crazy clause.

    If they want to make a religion that their “higher power” condones gay marriage, more power to them. Get married all ya want. The issue at hand is: will the government force me to believe something that is against my faith? We need to get the government out of the marriage business. ONLY issue civil unions, this way all are equal under the law, no one is forced to violate their faith, and marriage is defined by you and what you believe.

    Atheists don’t believe in a higher power, why would they care about a religious concept like marriage? They above all groups should be pushing to separate this church concept form state.

    @Pat68
    The solution is to get Government out of the marriage then. What ever happened to the “separation of church and state”? As far as the Government should be concerned there should just be a contract issued between 2 or more people that forms a union between them giving them all the same privileges. If adoption was a Right then they would not be able to prevent someone form adopting a random child from any house hold. That would be grate on my taxes, adopt all the kids on my block, put them down as dependents. lol

    @LibertarianSocialist
    Perhaps you forget my position, I don’t want the Government telling me what marriage is. I don’t care if you or your church say that you are married. More power to ya. I don’t have to recognize it same as I don’t have to recognize reincarnation. I have a problem when the Government says that I have to believe in reincarnation.
