    And they use religion as an excuse. When Jesus said to get to heaven, one must love the least of these, not hate them.

    I’m an agnostic and even I know he called it an abomination. I don’t understand how anyone can be a Christian and change their belief in the Bible, because their son, daughter, niece or nephew comes out as gay. Again, I couldn’t care less either way just don’t let the pols reverse discriminate for gays as they have for every other minority group. Actually they do already do reverse discriminate for gays in some places in this country.

    And in this country, you are entitled to your NARROW religious beliefs. I among many would fight to make sure that although I disagree with you, that you keep the right to follow your beleifs. HOWEVER, I would also fight to prevent YOU from forcing your beleifs on others. Live long, and allow other to live as they choose.

    " God created marriage between 1 man & 1 woman. "
    except when the man has more than one wife, and maybe a concubine or two. How about just having a child by his wife’s handmaiden without any type of religious union.
    Frank, so you think you know your religious texts?

    Or even better, Leviticus 19:28

    “Do not engrave images on your body.”

    So until the religious right starts picketing any sport where the players sport body ink, they can shove their nonsense up their patooties.

    The real bigots are the lefties who complain of prejudice.
    Got it. So all it takes to be a bigot is to notice bigotry?

    Why doesn’t being rich work like that?

    Thanks, Drew. You’re a great guy to bring attention to the sad presence of rampant homophobia in sports.

    So, I presume, based on your ignorant arrogance, that you’re in the privileged heterosexual majority. So, you should choose to be gay today, and just give it a try. You might change your mind and want to know every gay person that crosses your path. :-D

    Okay, I understand the concept of the biblical view of marriage.

    Even though the Bible references polygamy and concubines, as has been pointed out above, I am willing to accept the fact that people are willing to ignore major contradictions in order to “keep the faith”. So, I will accept the premise (however poorly supported) that the bible says it’s one man, one woman.

    Can biblical believers accept a “civil union”, where legalities afforded to married spouses can be conferred onto life partners, without using the religious term/category “marriage”?

    In other words, do you have an objection to gay marriage (a concept revolving around religious belief) or do you have an objection to gays becoming life partners (a concept where religion is kept out of the discussion, but only legalities stay the same)?

    Oh, please. God didn’t invent marriage; man did. Adam and Eve weren’t married. God invented concubines…. and mistresses….. and polygamy….. and many other forms of relationship, but the first ceremonial marriage didn’t occur until the Egyptian pharaohs started formalizing succession. And I’m sure you won’t try to make a case that Yahweh, the Hebrew god of the time who evolved into the upper-case Judeo-Christian God, helped the Egyptians do that while masquerading as Ra?

    “It’s not that we hate the person, we hate the sin. God created marriage between 1 man & 1 woman.”

    And because you and your church believe that, the rest of us must also adhere to it? If those who don’t live as you prescribe, it’s us that are forcing our views on you?

    You can believe whatever it is you want to. It’s your right to practice your religion, disapprove of gays and/or any other group, and refuse to personally disapprove of anyone’s marriage or divorce to your heart’s content. It’s none of my business and I won’t even pretend to care. However it becomes my business when you try to force your beliefs on me. I don’t have to practice your religion, believe your beliefs, or live by your standards. I don’t have to define my marriage to a consenting adult based on your beliefs.

    Take another look. While the bible labels a great many things as “sin” and anti-God (which I guess sin IS anti-God), if I remember correctly it states that God hates one thing: divorce.

    " The part of the bible that denigrates homosexuality (Leviticus) also says you must not eat shellfish or wear blended fabrics. Are you committing those “sins”?"
    Now THAT i will have to look up. Thanks for the heads up.

    Mary Douglas, the sociologist, has an interesting analysis of Leviticus. She argues, as I recall, that the fundamental principle is that what were considered to be natural categories should be kept separate.
