Amber on Marriage

"In this day of age and in the presence of violence and war, I think that it is plainly ignorant to think that you should forbid their love and question the sincerity between 2 people that happen to have the same sex. It is a proven fact, that being homosexual is NOT by choice but a genetic pre determination. If you are giving gay people the same duties in this society - you MUST give them the same rights and choices in return. Many of them are willing to adopt children, left behind by straight couples, and raise them in loving homes - I don't ask you what is going on in your bedroom and I am simply not interested either- for me- the main key is love and respect- and as long as you are a person that has that in his heart - I cannot see anything wrong with it. We need to grow up already and start worrying about the REAL issues in this world!"

I AM A VERY OPEN MINDED PERSON AND I HAVE A HEART FOR EVERYONE. BUT BEING HOMOSEXUAL IS NOT RIGHT. THAT DOESN'T MEAN I DON'T HAVE FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHOM I LOVE W/ ALL MY HEART THAT ARE GAY, IT SIMPLY MEANS THAT GOD DID NOT CREATE THIS WONDERFUL WORLD TO BE LIKE IT IS BECOMING. IF YOU WILL DIVE INTO THE WORD (BIBLE) YOU WILL UNDERSTAND IT MORE.

Quick remark to Amber Matthews remark,.......
If you are SOOOO openminded, how can you make such stupid remarks?
Too much peroxide? Or just too much ignorance.
About god,..........
The bible has been written by men and for 2000 years interpreted by humans who twisted it to fit their own needs,........ If you believe what they have written, than you dont believe in God but in their ignorance and demands and interpretation.
Amber Matthews,...... if you dont have anything senisble to say, then just SHUT UP!

It is a proven fact that there are no proven facts indicate any genetic causal link to homosexuality.

Cmon...

Whether homosexuality is genetic or a personal choice is irrelevant. When two people love each other, they deserve to be together, legally. Gays have just as much right to marry as straights.

And the Bible...
Well, I hate to burst your bubble, Amber (the OTHER Amber Mathews, the one who is anti-gay rights, above) but Jesus' philosophy was to 'love thy neighbor,' NOT 'love thy heterosexual neighbor.'

Posted by: Amber Matthews at Jun 23, 2004 2:35:28 PM

Well, for one thing I never said I was anti-gay rights...I love everybody, I have gay friends, but that does not mean the lifestyle is meant to be. Maybe I shouldn't have opened "pandora's box", but I felt it needed to be said. I do 'love thy neighbor' and God said 'do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman;..
Leviticus 18:22. And Jesus followed God's way w/ a little extra heart, since he did die on the CROSS for OUR sins. I hate to step on any toes, but I think we should try our best to live the way we know is right.

Regarding the Bible and homosexuality being a sin, and thus opposing gay marriage, the "Christian" right has it wrong.

I invite you to read: "Connecting the Biblical Dots: Why Jesus Is For Same-sex Marriage." It's a biblically grounded paper that gives a convincing argument why homosexuality is not a sin to God and why marriage, including same-sex marriage, is the acceptable standard.

I would have to stand with God the one and only on this matter, that love the sinner but it doesn't mean overlook sin, we all sin but need to come to God as a society, we can no longer look past this sin and just accept it because they're such good people, sin is sin and death is the punishment for that we must go to Jesus for forgivement and develop a personal relationship with him in order to save ourselves and release us from our sinful nature, if we don't this nation will fail inevitably! hate to break the truth to everybody but it is the only true truth we have and that is the Bible, and instead of ridiculing it, READ IT and follow Jesus ways, it will not only make your life happier and fuller and make the world a better place but it will save your soul from an eternity with torment and damnation.
hate sin and love everyone and do good in light of him to show glory to our most wonderful maker and creator God

here is a good website I have for anyone asking questions, www.centurybaptist.org and listen to the pastors sermons they will help you understand the Bible

Smoking cigarettes, getting drunk, having pre-marital sex, looking at pornography, stealing, jealousy.... Unless your the son of God, I'm pretty sure all of us have sinned multiple times in out lives. God doesn't "rate" sins on a scale of 1 to 10. They are all the same in his eyes. Just because homosexuality isn't as accepted by society as some of the things I listed earlier, doesn't mean that GOD looks at it any differently than getting a tatoo (marking the temple of god)People are the one who have made such a huge deal out of homosexuality. Not the bible. I don't see how two people who are in love should be looked upon with negative eyes just because they share the same gender. People watch television every day and LUST after actors or actress'. People pass homeless people and pass up the chance to HELP SOME ONE IN NEED. I caould go on and on. But I think I've made my point.
