I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
Gloria~I'm absolutely supportive of you having your views. We all have different viewpoints. My stance is that if it isn't hurting me and my family than I really don't have a say in it based on my morals. 2 men or 2 women marrying do not hurt your family. You get to get married and get all the government benefits. You get to see your husband in the hospital. You get to raise your family and instilling in them what you find is important. Why can't they? How are they hurting you?
Why can't we, as a society, just say hey...you live your way and I'll live mine. We would be a much better place if we just started to mind our own business about what goes on in other people's houses.
And so what about gay couples who don't want kids? Still not okay because of your parenting ideal?
How about real life people we actually know who are adopted and/or have gay parents and are part of happy families? No good?
Laurie - we all vote according to our MORALS.. just because Glorias are different "more strict" in certain areas than yours doesn't necessarily make them wrong... It all depends on what you base your right and wrong on.. If we are all basing them off our OWN set of values then it is perfectly fine for us to believe whatever we want is right or wrong .. correct... but Stars above forbid if we base it on a Book.. written years and years ago..... then we are wrong in our beliefs, and shouldn't try and share or promote or vote according to them.
Fine.. then Murder is fine.... oh it isn't.... who says.. society? why.. what if society changes.. in some societies it is fine... what makes it immoral.?
Don't throw eating pork at the situation.. it is something our society believes is ok.. Throw in something our society believes is wrong... why do we? what is it based on.. why do most societies view it that way.. and why?... we are all amoebas after all.. who the hell cares. Survival of the Fittest.
Yes I am being sarcastic.. it has gone on long enough.. get over it.

Eating pork matters. Tons of Jewish people in this country do NOT think it is okay. They also don't think the law should be changed for everybody else because of their beliefs.
I am not lying. I am supportive that she has her own belief system whether or not we agree. I do NOT support voting on human rights and I certainly to not support using ANY religious text to make laws for the US.
Again, murder is wrong because it ends someone else's life and not at their choosing. It hurts them. People being gay doesn't hurt you. Gay marriage doesn't hurt you. You may not like it but it doesn't hurt you. I'm not a big fan of homeschooling. Just not. I think it is beneficial in very limited situations. I absolutely support your right and Bonita's right to homeschool as well as all the other people I know that homeschool....it doesn't hurt me that you do. I wouldn't homebirth but I'm not going to tell Melis or my other home birthing friends they can't. None of that is my business nor is it your business to tell someone they do not have full and equal rights as you.
Yes. Abortion ends a life. On that I will side with the woman and let her make her own decision. Until that baby can survive without being connected to her...what she does is up to her. But my belief doesn't necessarily think abortion is wrong even though I wouldn't have one.
I would say as much as I love to debate abortion rights....that I think it's going to take off in a completely different direction than we need this debate to go. It's just a large can of worms to open on an already gigantic thread.
