    they're not really married cause, the preacher preforming the cerimony is apperently a fraud. how could you go against the book your preaching from. because the bible plainly says it wrong.

    In the United States same sex marriage doesnt have to do with religious institutions recognizing the marriage rather the state, which is a secular democracy, recognizing it.

    And, of course, marriage is not a concept that is unique to Christianity... Also, if a certain group of Christians wants to recognize same sex marriage its their decision. No demoniation of christianity follows everything as stated in the bible. ALL and I do mean ALL christians pick and choose what they want to believe from the bible.

    American Christians crack me up.

    Ask, "Do you know any gays"? Answer, "And I don't want to either".

    Ask, "Is gay a choice"? Answer, "Yes".

    Ask, "Did you choose"? Answer, "No".

    Ask, "Will a gay marriage destroy yours"? Answer, "No, of course not".

    Ask, "Why not let them get married"? Answer, "Because it will destroy the institution of marriage".

    Ask, "But not yours"? Answer, "Not mine".

    Ask, "Where do gays come from"? Answer, "I don't know".

    Ask, "Did you know that gays are the children of Christians"? Answer, "No way".

    Ask, "What if your son was gay", Answer, "No way, I didn't raise him to be gay".

    Ask, "But what if he were"? Answer, "I would have to disown him and that would be his choice".

    And the ignorance goes round and round.

    OK--I am going to try and read the Christian Tea leaves for a second.

    In practice, homosexuality is a sin. Yet the church mission is to teach people to turn away from sin. But how can the church accomplish this if it turn away gays. The same goes with Christians--they are suppose to embrace homosexuals and teach them that same sex practice is immoral and detasteful in the eyes of their lord. If the homosexual disagrees, then the homosexual is left with the choice of abandoning that belief system.

    Bottomline, there is no such thing as same sex marriage in christianity, and all Homosexuals that seek marriage are therefor not christians. This is true regardless of what they think Christianity is or if they think they are christians.

    So if you are gay, and want to get married, then get ready to "burn forever in the lakes of Fire and brimstone and bathe in the agony of Satan's hatred towards you" Or call christianity a false religion and move on with your life!!

    I dont think it does. I am making a statement based on actual and real life religious practices, preferences, and beliefs of christians.
