Here is the Hypocracy of Christianity Today

Exodus 20
The Ten Commandments

1. You shall have no other gods before me.

2. You shall not make for yourself an idol and worship it instead of me.

3. You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

4. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

5. Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

6. You shall not murder.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

Why is it that we can break any of these commandments... ALL of these commandments and still be afforded the equality and dignity of marriage by the United States Government, yet simply being gay is so terrible that we should deny ANYONE marriage based soley on that unchangable atribute, rather than judging their individual merits. Why must the gay community be held to a standard the heterosexual community does not hold itself to? How do the opponents of gay marriage justify their crusade without admitting they are imposing Christian values on citizens that do not wish to follow or believe them?

God will get you for mocking His commandments. All of you fags are going to burn in Hell.

I am not mocking them, I am using them to try to make a point. There are worse sins in the bible than being gay, so why is this the sin that gets to decide whether someone gets married? It is a greater sin to kill is it not? So why then can people on death row get married and have children and gay couples cannot?

There are a lot of things that are not in the ten commandments, and if we are to use the Bible to govern we should probably put everything in perspective. Homosexuality is an much an abomonation as eating shellfish, and that is how seriously our society should take it. This is a diverse society and there is room for behavior that we might not agree with, but is victimless.

As for your comment that homosexuality is not a crime, you are right. They did strike that law down in my lifetime however. It's nice to see progress, no matter how slow it comes.
