Just wondering if being against gay marriage makes one a homophobe.

You know, something I've never understood is why gay people don't make their own Church. I mean, surely it can't be such a big deal if Henry the Somethingeth or whatever number he was managed to create a ******* church for the sole purpose of divorcing his wife.

Surely you could create a Church with every ideal of Christianity, belief in the same God, except for the "thou shalt not lay with man as one lays with woman" part. Instead they have to try and butt into marrying in churches which prohibit gay marriage using the government to allow it to them; it's kinda like having the teacher force the bully to hang out with you instead of just finding your own friends who aren't ******* bullies. Surely that'd be the ideal solution? I mean, forcing the Church to abandon bigotry and hate will only make them hate you more; why don't they just make their own religion or whatever and get married as they like? I mean, I don't mind them or gay marriage, I'm an atheist so it's really none of my business, I mean, it's not like they're intruding on my religion, but I was really wondering why don't they just make their own subchurch or branch of religion or whatever it's called.

Wait wait wait. Has anyone tried to sit down and just think for a moment?
gay's arent really accepted by christians, which many people are trying to change now.
Thats okay, But then accept them to get married also? why?
and no, i'm not asking "Why should they get married?" i say : Why would a gay couple get married in the christian religion? why do they want to get married in the first place?
"they love eachother" , well *********** do! you can be a couple and share house,kids and money without being married. its just a christian title.
It's like having a boys night where you talk about girls are stupid. then someone says: "No. girls should be allowed to attend boys night aswell, even though they hate us" why would girls want to join that club? just because reasons?

TLR : don't understand why gays want to be married in a religion who does not accept them.

That's the thing that most rustle my jimmies or whatever... Why in hell it's YOUR title? People get married long before christianity, people celebrated the winter solstice long before Christmas was shoved down our throats. 2000 years of christianity don't gave you the right to call everything you like "yours"

If you can give me scientifically valid, logical and benign reasons behind being against gay marriage, then sure.
But I'd bet all of my money that you couldn't.

I respect your ability to ask and I say,

just get the **** over it.

Marriage was only ever intended to share resources between families. That is "traditional" marriage.
Marriage today gives many rights and benefits to married couples. Which means that gay couples have no access to these rights. That is discrimination.
gay marriage does not affect you in any way whatsoever. You're not going to suddenly walk out of your door and see gay people ******* everywhere. It doesn't affect you so you should just get the **** over it.

If you are still against it, you are a homophobe, a bigot, and are supporting the discrimination of others.

there is more than enough scientific proof that gay people are in fact born gay.

So far you are the only person right in this thread. Do you others not understand that it isn't the fact that Christians don't want them to get married in their churches, but that they are not legally allowed to get married by the U.S. government that gay rights activists are protesting about. You can be against the idea of gay people getting married in a church without being a bigot, but when you are against gay marriages getting the same rights as straight marriages that makes you a bigot.

There's really no consistency with FJ's belief system. There is absolutely no reason to be against the legalization of gay marriage.

I mean if you're talking about church sanctioned marriage then **** , be a bigoted prick. It's your religion, but legally it's just ****** up.

"Marriage was only ever intended to share resources." Yes, and black people were only ever intended to be slaves. How about you update your definition of "traditional?"

I was speaking in the terms of "traditional" marriage.
The earliest form of marriage was a form of sharing resources between families.
