The Campaign For DA

Oh, My!



And, it looks like I am once again a legal genius. I call your attention to this Random Thought from April 29th:

Kennedy wrote the opinion released today and check out how he ended it: Dignity.

But we must interrupt this historic moment for comedy:

How long before the IRS comes down on churches for refusing to perform gay weddings, Barry?

That is the ultimate goal of all this, right?

Let us pray for all of the heterosexual couples who have had their marriage ruined today because of the Supreme Court's ruling legalizing gay marriage.

Hey, 9:13 -

Matthew 7:1, as needed

(I couldn't figure out the point of your post. I'm guessing you concluded [judged] that 9:10 is not already loving the sinner while hating the sin. How did you arrive at that judgment?)

So my spouse already burns my supper, starches my underwear, dutch ovens me in bed, nags me about the yard, drinks my beer, and neglects my husbandly physical needs. How exactly are the gays being allowed to marry going to ruin my "happy" union?

Wrong. Justice Kennedy specifically notes in the decision:

"Finally, it must be emphasized that religions, and those
who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advocate
with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine precepts,
same-sex marriage should not be condoned. The
First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and
persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach
the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their
lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to
continue the family structure they have long revered."

If the IRS is going after churches, it should go after the ones headed by opportunists like the esteemed Dr. Jeffress and Franklin Graham who have turned their pulpit into a political platform. When you're telling people which party is the right and godly party to vote for, you're not preaching morals, you're preaching politics.

It's hard to say you "love" someone when you are fighting to ensure their rights are inferior to yours.

"Love the sinner, hate the sin" is the evangelical equivalent of "well bless his heart."

As far as I can tell, the Court says nothing about religious marriage. It just makes civil marriage available to anyone. (However, you still can marry only one other person at a time).

I agree 9:10 Hope God does not hold this against all of us because most of us do not agree that a marriage should be between a male and female.

I assume you're also 9:13. If so, you're continuing to come to conclusions without any supporting evidence. Now you seem to be suggesting that 9:10 is "fighting to ensure their [gays, etc.] rights are inferior."

You're judging people. And if you're going to quote the Bible while doing so, then I would once again refer you to Matthew 7:1.

By the way, "love the sinner, hate the sin" pretty much sums up the Bible, does it not? The fact that the phrase is frequently used to disguise hatred doesn't change the fact that the phrase itself is what the Bible teaches. Does God himself not love the sinner while hating the sin?

Those that don't have a personal stake in the Supreme Court ruling cannot imagine the joy that it brings. They haven't watched their loved ones live under the burden of being legally inferior to heteros.

I am incredibly happy.

Hey, leave me out of the gay marriage kerfuffle! I am still having to explain letting a brother & sister hook up in the Garden of Eden. Remember the whole "taken from the rib" thing with Adam & Eve? That wasn't exactly two unrelated strangers meeting in a bar.

If God is going to punish America now, why didn't he do so when Europeans invaded this country, slaughtered its inhabitants and stole their land, and subsequently built up the country on the backs of slaves? I'm doubtful that any of that is godly activity.

God wants most people in Hell anyway, since most of the people ever born never heard of Jesus Christ. I'm not sure how this Supreme Court Decision has any bearing on people going to Hell. This changes nothing outside what the state recognizes as marriage. Since the state is not a religious entity, this is nothing more than a contract between two people.

By prooftexting Matthew 7:1, you ignore that the focus of the message is on hypocrisy, not "judging." By seemingly placing same-sex relations on some "higher level" of sin, fundamentalists have created a platform from which they rail against homosexuality (which was never directly addressed by Christ). Meanwhile, they're making these loud proclamations to congregations full of divorced people (which was directly addressed by Christ), and many of those opposing same-sex marriage are divorced themselves. So while it's a pithy soundbite to say "you can't judge, because Matt. 7:1," the full context reveals that Christ is rebuking those who would hypocritically condemn others for a speck, when they should be worried about the beam in their own eyes.

Can our love compare to God's? Can any man love the way God does? That's why I pointed to Matt. 22. #1 - love God. #2 - love people. Everything else depends on this. And, in my opinion, "love your neighbor as you love yourself" does not include telling your neighbor that he cannot have equal civil-law rights because you have a religious disagreement over one of his actions. To do so would be hypocrisy (see Matt. 7) - unless of course you are also fighting to restrict the rights of someone to get drunk because the Bible says you shouldn't do that, or to restrict someone's right to smoke because the Bible says your body is a temple, etc.

So yes, "love the sinner, hate the sin" is most often a shield for hatred because man does not have the capacity to love on the level of God.

11:04, I don't know you. I don't know your heart, and how you love people, and what your life is like. But here's the great thing - I'm not your judge. You live your life how you feel God directs you, and I'm going to do the same. But the issue of the day is the attempt by a faction of Christianity to use their beliefs to restrict the civil-law rights of others. And that is what I oppose. We all get to live out our religion thanks to the First Amendment. But our practice of religion doesn't get to infringe on another person's right to do something else.

We can have a theological debate all day as to whether same-sex marriages are or are not okay with God, but ultimately what we think doesn't matter. God will handle all that. Our job is to love people, and, again, it's hard for someone to see that I love them when I'm arguing that their civil liberties are less important or valid than mine.

12:05 - you are clearly a nice and rational person. While I do not personally subscribe to organized religion, I identify with a higher power and greatly appreciate the inclusive nature of your comments. I personally wish there were more people like you.

Alas, there are not enough open minded poeple. As expected, the majority of the comments on here are incredibly narrow minded and judgmental. I halfway suspect that some portion of the hate comments on here are from men who either suspect that they might have homosexual tendencies or are ignorant and think homosexuality is contagious or something. I have personal friends who are gay, and I can guarantee that they would rather be hetero and not have to deal with all this bullshit, but genetics did not allow for that option.

Long story short, the views of the ignorant will continue until they die off and things will continue to progress. Undoubtedly, we will still see discrimination, but it will wane with time.

"Sodom and Gomorrah..." Lol - you guys are akin to ignorant sheep herders. Hopefully, you won't start strapping bombs on your bodies because God told you to do so.

12:05 Defining marriage as only between a man and a woman does not infringe on anyone's civil rights. The reason is because the law is gender based and not sexual orientation based. The law says to the hetero that they can marry someone of the opposite sex but cannot marry someone of the same sex. To the homo it says that they can marry someone of the opposite sex but cannot marry someone of the same sex. That law applies equally to hetero's as well as homo's. Show me where the homo's civil rights are infringed by having it defined that way.

Anonymous said...

12:05 For the comment of the day, or maybe the year. I've seen the hatred doled out by fellow Christians for years and have long prayed for their change or heart. The hypocrisy is at a level I've never seen before in Christian churches, but they are my brothers and sisters so I can only love them and continue to pray to remove the hardness from their hearts. That has done more damage to Christianity than anything...it has always been self-inflicted!

Hallelujah! That's all the religious language I am going to use because that's all I know! Religion has done nothing but to confuse people anyway. Meanwhile, me and my lovely friends will celebrate for weeks! I'm headed to the liquor store right now and stopping off at Nelda & Roy's for a week's worth of ecstasy, poppers, ciggies, and cigars.

For those of you whining about losing, get used to it! We're here, we're queer, and we're in charge now! If you value your phony jobs and phony families and phony lives, better get with the program or find yourself in the unemployment line. Many of you bigots will wind up in prison for your beliefs and I've got to say, that thought makes me extremely happy.

I'd like to give a big fat French kiss to John Roberts and I don't even like men!

I can't keep up, so I'm going back to the starting line.

At 9:13, you essentially advised 9:10 to "love your neighbor as yourself." This appeared to be a response to 9:10's opinion that we live in a wicked nation.

Either you're just randomly throwing advice out there, or you somehow concluded that 9:10 does not already love his/her neighbor as him-/herself. I speculated that it must be the latter and, consequently, opined that you appear to be judging 9:10 based on virtually nothing.

In other words, your response to 9:10, while good advice, had nothing to do with what 9:10 said. Or at least, it doesn't appear that way to me.

Then, at 10:21, you seem to suggest that 9:10 is "fighting to ensure their rights are inferior to yours."

Again... How in the world are you coming to that conclusion? You're connecting dots that aren't there.

You stated, "We can have a theological debate all day long." Well, yes... if I was willing to participate. If you're involved in a "theological debate," it's with someone else. I'm not debating your theology, I'm questioning your reasoning and logic.

Yea Teapot, we all look forward to the day when you achieve the demolition of freedom of expression.

You are a fool and the destruction you bring on your country will bite you in the ass as hard is it does the everybody else. The guys who fervently believe in the 2nd amendment will ultimately have to pull you back from the abyss, and you'll still be too stupid and arrogant to realize that you will have caused your (and my) problems

Will religious liberty be sacrificed for same sex marriage? Same sex marriage goes against natural law; it deprives children of two natural parents. How far will the left push against natural law and the religious community?

Even with today's results, Teapot will remain an angry, frustrated, foul-mouthed person. Very sad. He doesn't want equality under the law. He has that now, but wants more. He wants people like me to recognize and accept his lifestyle. His happiness is still dependent on recognition and acceptance. Sorry Teapot, but folks like Katy had that before today's Supreme Court decision as evidenced by civil conversations with her on this blog. Probably not going to happen for you.

Now, call me deragatory names and show your real ignorant, arrogant self.
