Well although I do not agree, I do respect your point of view.

I find your spiritual views interesting. I do have some of my own spiritual views but I'm reluctant to attempt to link them to marriage.

I'm amazed by the poll results ! Are you people that close minded ? There's no harm in allowing men to marry men and women to marry women.

Closed minded? The voter results are pretty close: 51.72% to 48.28%.

So I guess you could say that half are open minded, and half are closed minded. But now, I feel so persecuted.

I guess he meant to say that people who don't think that gay people are allowed to get married are closed minded.

but that would be a closed minded statement.

I'm surprised so many people still feel gays and lesbians should not be allowed to marry.

I feel these should be allowed to marry. To the opposite sex. Keep it natural, nobody has taken this right away from them. But they have themselves, just as a man would who want to marry his dog. It is not legal in California -there are strict animal cruelty laws in place.

I feel that a rational thinker would not even attempt to equate a man that wants to marry a man to a man that wants to marry a dog. This is purely irrational thinking.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodomy_law

Quote:
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as sex crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but is typically understood by courts to include any sexual act which does not lead to procreation. It also has a range of similar euphemisms.[1] These acts typically include oral sex, anal sex, and bestiality; in practice such laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples.[2]
So do you suggest here that you possess more rational thinking those who've created sodomy laws? Seems that this 'pure thinking' was was explored even before my birth. And there is also a equation defined herein.

Such a rational thinker you pose to be.

Oh, you did not see the link in my last post? Or possibly you forgot it was there? That's natural, and these things happen in older age. You'll be fine.

Yes, I saw it and read it the first time that you posted it a while back, and my statement still stands, I honestly have no idea what you are getting at or how you derived all that from that quote.

Uh excuse me here sir, but I think that it's called reading.

Here, I'll post it again for you to read:

I'm afraid, krahmaan was banned in the forum because of these statements.
I'm thinking it's unfair for some reason.

I am thinking it is wrong for anyone to assume anything and I highly recommend staying out of it.
