That was funny. Good one!

I would like to point out - we all could post pics of the extreme edges of our viewpoints - sort of an appeal to emotion tactic.

No, but it is for many... So when we discuss slippery slopes, here's the other side.

Agreed, and I think you will find that the Catholic Church (the main church in this discussion) makes divorce much more difficult.

but do you see, AEON, when you describe my relationship with Memphis as "homosexual behavior" you're reducing me in a manner similar to those science fair kids.

i am a person, not an act. i don't see what possible harm we would bring to the institution of marriage.

no it doesn't. the state grants divorces, two catholics can get a divorce as easily as two atheists. they might not be divorced in the eyes of the church, but what's the church going to do?

I also wonder to what extent this young lady went on the "Procedure" and "Observations" part of the project...

No one here has fully explained it yet.

I'm sure her church gave her all the information she'd ever need.

gotta give props to narrow-minded parents teaching their children lies. maybe when they're older and less impressionable they'll come to realize the truth (again, i'm not getting into what i think vs. others, just facts about aids transmission).

Seriously, I do apologize. I do not mean to offend you by saying "homosexual behavior" instead of "homosexual". I happen to agree with the Catholic Church's view that being a homosexual is not a sin, but acting it out is. I don't fully understand why God creates the desire - then forbids it. But I can say that about a great many desires. It goes all the way to the beginning of mankind's relationship with God - desiring what is forbidden.

It has been my observation - that over time - God's wisdom prevails both personally, and socially. I concede that Melon's interpretations regarding the Bible's stance on homosexuality may be correct, and I always pray that the Holy Spirit will open my eyes and heart to the actual meaning of any passage, not just the ones concerning homosexuality.

As it stands now, it just seems that if the Bible genuinely wanted to make an exception for homosexuality (and as many have pointed out, there were certainly homosexuals in Biblical times) then there would be more written about it. Every instance of homosexuality written in the Bible is portrayed in a negative light. It would seem - that if God did intend to permit loving gay marriages - there would be at least one example and just a tad bit of wisdom thrown their way on how to be a good loving gay married couple.

AEON, i'm not going to tell you how to believe, but doesn't this seem like extremely shaky grounds upon which to deny people -- believers, non-believers, different religions alike -- fairly basic civil rights?
