    The ironic thing is that there will never truly be such a thing as homosexual marriage. The institution was established by God with the creation of man and woman, and therefore only God can change it. Since he has made his stance on homosexuality abundantly clear, this will never happen. No matter what human call it, no matter what laws are passed, no matter what the courts state, there can never be such a thing as true homosexual marriage, it is impossible. It all comes back to the question of how you decide right from wrong. What is the source for objective morality? There is only one, much to the dismay of the atheists who wish otherwise.

    Will the churches be “forced” to perform the weddings against their core beliefs?
    Separation works both ways or at least it’s supposed to? Keep the government out of religion and keep religion out of government.

    No need to worry about men and women getting together, “gods plan” has already overpopulated the planet.

    “Marriage” is only both a religious sacrament and a civil contract because the church was once the source of literate record-keeping, but there have been civil governments for about the last 500 years, and the United States was specifically set up such that religious leaders were not civil authorities.

    Thus you can obtain a legal marriage at the town hall without ever having to go into a church, much less get the permission of a religious leader.

    Anything else you missed in history class, Chip?

    I hear that Adam and Eve weren’t married — they were living in sin.

    Anyone care to guess how syphilis was introduced to the human population? Ah, yes, when men were men, and the sheep were nervous.

    I heard some idiot woman on TV say that “now you can marry anyone you want”. So I guess I can marry my brother or my sister or my dog? The morals in this country are officially in the toilet!

    The court did not order churches to perform gay weddings. Lame.

    I’m a liberal who believes in God, but I think anyone who pretends to be a christian and brings it to regulate people’s private lives or promote a political agenda is breaking the fourth commandment.

    The idea it is "overpopulated is false. It is mismanaged and that is all our fault. The fact of the bad situation we are in in the first place is also our fault, much as there are those loathe to admit it.

    You’ve tried this failure of an approach before. How do you decide whose “reason” we use? In the end it still comes down to mere human opinion. And logic and reason fall short when it comes to dealing with “oughts.” They can tell you whether you CAN do something, but are impotent to explain the oughts associated with morality. Also, since in your own atheistic worldview any “choices” we make are simply the result of chemical reactions in the brain, there is no free will, we are all simply slaves to the laws of chemistry. No free will, no morality, for you cannot hold someone responsible for a supposed wrong if they had no choice in the matter. And since this same brain chemistry that makes you adhere to atheism would also make a Christian adhere to his worldview, what makes your random brain chemistry more valid than anyone else’s? I think it likely you will live out your life clinging to this silly idea that you have somehow come up with a valid basis for atheistic morality, something no other atheist in history has ever successfully done, which makes it all the sadder. Finally, the Christian approach to morality is not based on “fear,” which is a common atheistic caricature. It is based on the recognition of the fact that to have true morality one must have a source outside of and above humans, and that God, as Creator of reality, is the only one that fits the bill. As a just and holy God, of course there must be consequences to sin, yet God in his grace and mercy has offered us a way out. Whether to accept it or continue to live their own selfish lives apart from him is up to the individual.

    The very point is that God established marriage from the beginning. It was he who married Adam and Eve, made them bonded pair one man to one women. Jesus reiterated this in the New Testament.

    And once more you fail to address the main point. What makes that person’s, the parent of the 2-year-old, idea of moral behavior more valid than the next random collection of atom’s opinion? Hitler thought it was reasonable to slaughter all the Jews as they were less evolved than his master race, which is perfectly consistent with evolutionary/atheistic thinking. So once again you have failed to produce a way to distinguish between one person’s opinion and another’s. And God tells us how we should live because he knows what will bring the greatest good, whereas we do not. But there are consequences to doing what is wrong and we must pay the price for the sins we commit as God is a just and holy God. Do good because it is good, not simply out of fear of consequences as you paint your caricature. But you still dodge the main question. What DETERMINES what is good? You still offer nothing but opinion with no way to decide one random collection of atom’s from another’s.
