Now, if I said that gay unions were were like comparing burros to pure bred horses-you'd have a right to be angry.

I actually elevated gay unions by saying that they deserved the same respect as marriages-and not to change their meaning which is :a matrimonial union between a same sex cpl.

Incorrect. Educated people agree they are different, not that they are superior.

But this has nothing to do with gay marriage in any way.

No, even your dolphin/fish comparison is still offensive, because you are using 2 entirely different species. Homosexuals and heterosexuals are the same species. Granting them the same rights as you in no way diminishes your rights or negatively affects your life in any tangible way. Trying to exaggerate the differences in order to justify your separate but equal status is offensive, regardless of the species you choose to use.

I highly suggest you find another way to discuss this and leave the comparisons to different species out of this.

I don't think Jesus had in mind whether or not a given restriction was Constitutional when he said that, otherwise Christians wouldn't be able to practice law.

This does not frighten me. I will proudly stand before Him, knowing that I didn't deny any of His loved ones access to the rights of my country.

So, it's not possible to say you're a bigot and make it to heaven? Good to know.

You're just one more reason why I find myself leaving religious ideas.

Because then that would prove that homosexuality is innate.
