    It keeps going the same way in state after state…The people vote and say NO! and then the courts and the libs come in and do their best to overturn the clear voice of the voters. Our legislators are so willing to disregard the will of the people on a whole range of issues. This is just one more example. For me that’s a bigger issue than the whole debate about gay marriage.

    I remember when they said if Bush weren’t elected we’d get a liberal court. And yet who appointed Roberts The Liberal?

    Bigotry and discrimination are not subject to a vote of the people. Rights trump votes every time.

    Rights? By who’s definition? When elected officials ignore the citizens and force what they perceive to be proper behavior on people you’ve thrown rights out the window. Convincing the public to change their attitude is the way to get it done. It takes longer, but it does happen eventually if the cause is just.

    They don’t have to. The Progressive Left already did that (legalize discrimination).

    I suggest you read it as well. Particularly the parts about casting that first stone or not judging others or the epic definition of “charity or love” (depending on the translation – hmmm see how humans change things even in a divine tome?) by Paul at 1 Cor 13. Charity being the aspect of love most useful in this regard.

    And the “court” as you say has no place – legally – imposing any religious value on the rest of the population. Read the constitution.

    And, finally, since you indicate that you are a bible reader and may then be a christian, perhaps you should remember that your leader said that your task was to love your neighbor as yourself and leave the retribution (vengeance) to God.

    Like Paul noted for himself, if you do not love your fellowman, then all the other things you do that seem “godly” are for nothing. All men. Forgiving “every time”.

    May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.

    Well, it’s long been said that the only things in Texas are steers and (well… starts with Q and rhymes with steers). I guess that’s going to be forced into reality…

    Bruce
    Before you jump over Frank with partial and incorrect scripture interpertation, Paul said we were to judge, and if we can rescue someone from sin, how much greater is our reward.
    This movmement for Gay rights is the begining, next will be pedophile rights, then rapist rights. Because if sexual orientation is by birth, how can anyone be held accountable for their actions?
    And loving your neighbor does not mean allowing, helping or supporting someones choice of a bad lifestyle.
    Like a parent with a chld, you love a child, but hope to install discipline and moral courage, and faith the Jesus the Redeemer lives.

    So Paul, a follower and disciple of Christ’s teachings (since he only converted to “the way” after his “eyes were opened on the road to Damascus” with Jesus long gone is to be the “last word” on who or what we judge? Shouldn’t we take the words of Jesus first and think about context of Paul’s words in the light of that?

    Just asking. Not sitting in Judgement of your opinion.

    Yes, my brother, one must make “judgement” on a personal level of what is right or wrong, good or evil, and so on so we can adjust OUR thinking (not impose our thinking on others) to be in alignment with what our faith dictates to US. Yes, we should – if possible – warn those that are not following the path of the Christ in our opinion of what we have observed. But in such a way as to not condemn them for being sinners (since we all are sinners and have no legal standing to judge as that belongs to Jesus the King not a sin impaired human) but as a brother (sisiter) who loves them.

    However, since – again according to Paul – love forgives all things shouldn’t we as brothers and sisters be able to allow those that think differently do as they desire as long as they do not violate basic principles such as but not limited to murder and theft?

    Gee, I’m not inclined toward sexual relations with a guy. I have LOVED men in my life, some not related to me. I understand that love and have no fear of it.

    Who are you to decide what is “bad” for your neighbor? You can talk about YOUR feelings and how YOU would not do a thing, but it is not YOUR decision to make.

    We all enter this world with no memory, no set path. We are all products of our genetics, our environment and our personal decisions. Each of us MUST decide who and what we will become.

    So tell me brother Tim, how is MY interpretation incorrect and who told you it was?

    Good thing business owners don’t get to vote on installing wheel chair ramps or the country didn’t get to vote on the legality of interracial marriages back in the 60’s when the Supreme Court struck down anti miscegenation laws. Ignorant hateful majorities don’t get to vote on the fundamental liberties and rights of minorities. That’s why we have courts.

    Just poking fun at Texas cow pokes leads to a religious text on how the bible demands good Christians discriminate against anyone different than them. Rebutted of course, by folks that may be more devout in the real world, not hypocrits.
