    It means RIvergallery thinks that you and your son are going to burn in the fires of hell for all of eternity. She would have because she was filled with lust but she apparently asked for forgiveness and lusts no more so she is off the hook. I'm going because I wear bikinis. Good thing as I hear its hella hot down there so a one piece would never do!

    OHHHHH that hell place? If I even believed in heaven and hell I would most certainly choose hell. Heaven is much too uppity for me and where else can I heterosexually lust after women in bikinis

    Only Jesus can save, but we are definitely told to try to help people see the error of their ways.

    Romans 5:19 My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, 20 remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.

    Rg---you are right...we have discussed this...my Jesus and God are much nicer, loving and forgiving than yours and Gloria's. I don't believe in hell so not worried about it and no....don't believe that the Bible is the
    Iiteral word of God or Jesus and I refuse to base laws in the US on the book.

    It is not up to us to judge.

    Oh and River gallery....do not tell me what I can and cannot call myself. I choose to be kind, good and loving of others and by that I AM a follower of Christ.

But a bigot? You could change that tomorrow (or even today!). If you don't want to, I don't want to stop calling you one and I don't care about your delicate sensibilities surrounding the word any more than you care about the people you choose to dehumanize and take rights away from. You change, and I promise from the bottom of my heart, never again will I call you a bigot, because you won't be! Its quite simple.
    I have to agree. Bigot is not a "bad word" the way b*stard is. It's a descriptor that is not an insult unto itself unless you don't have those feelings about an entire group of people. If you called me narrow-minded about something I can't get all up in arms and pretend that that's a bad word and name calling just because I don't like to think of myself that way.

    Gloria - If you are so against the government giving people special rights based on marriage....why did you get married (assuming that you are legally married?) It's perfectly legal to hold a marriage ceremony in your church (which should satisfy your religion as far as making sure that you and your husband are man and wife) but never send in a marriage license to make you married in the eyes of the state. So why get legally married if you feel that way?

    Why not? It's not my fault that the government gives people special rights. I would vote against it if I ever had the chance, but I'm not responsible for the laws currently in place. It's not my fight so why do I need to do something in protest of it?

    It shouldn't be "special rights" in the US though. If an adult wants to marry another consenting adult there shouldn't be anything in p,ace to stop them. Remember, not too long ago interracial marriage was illegal and see how wrong and demeaning that was now?

    This is such a confusing viewpoint. You would vote against it if you could....but you are willing to take advantage of those special rights of it since it's not up for a vote? It's not like state sponsored marriage is compulsory or automatic - you had to actually do something extra (apply for, sign, and mail in your marriage certificate) to get it. So that seems to me like a pretty big "vote" that for yourself, you wanted the special rights. If you didn't believe that the state should be handing out special rights, then you didn't have to do that.

    It just seems so convenient to "stand for your principles" when those principles only involve other people and other people's rights. You don't believe that the state should be handing out special rights for them, but hey, if you can get those special rights then suddenly it's all "why not?" You know?
