`Jesus wept' or tears of joy? Faithful react to gay marriage rulings

By Daniel Burke, CNN

(CNN) As news broke of the big Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage, religious leaders took to Twitter to express joyous praise or strong condemnation.

  1. Loves God...

    All of these posts containing blasphemous remarks about God whom I love very much break my heart. Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins so we can be free in HIM. However, when we spit in HIS face and disregard HIS laws which our country was founded on He doesn't take it lightly nor is HE the man upstairs who doesn't discipline HIS children when they blatantly disobey HIM. You can't serve two masters: God and your flesh. Christians are taught to love sinners because everyone of us is one but we have a choice. The truth is not hate but what I see on here towards God is definitely hate. I pray that those of you who don't recognize that this world was made by a Creator the one true God will be in a horrible place when judgment day comes. Did you make the world? Did you send your son to die for sinners on a cross? If you read the Bible and ask for guidance you will see the truth. By the way, the old testament was based on laws which required sacrifice. The new testament shows God's love for us and that he sent His son to die (sacrifice) so we could be saved by grace and his free gift of salvation. Please don't quote what you don't understand. It is historically accurate and contains prophecy that has been proven. You can't save yourself and there will be no pleading when it is too late and your gone.

      You need to read the Treaty with Tripoli. The founders explicitly state the country was NOT founded on the Christian religion. You people just make up that crap. Jebus never once said he "died" for anyone's sins. Saul of Tarsus made up the salvation nonsense to sell the cult. So which is it ? Jebus said he came not to destroy the law, and Paul said you were free from the old law. Yet,n whenever it's convenient you and he quoted it to keep people (especially women) in their place. Your old books are crap. If your dumb god was omnipotent, she would actually do something. As it is, it seems all she is good for is killing people with tornadoes this year.

      Respect is earned. Silly beliefs in creatures that are no more likely to exist than the Tooth Fairy, warrant nothing of the sort.

      You said, "Someone that wrote that post obviously will be quite offended by what you wrote."

      First, I am saddened and amazed by your lack of caring for the OP. I presume you don't really, truly mean that.

      Nevertheless, her belief in God and your belief that there is no God are both matters of a belief.

      You will say yours is based on evidence. And hers is based on ignorance.

      But you cannot be sure. Deep down, you know this.

      I'm sure you'll get over it.

      You said, "I presume you don't really, truly mean that."
      I sure do. Ignorance is detrimental to society. Willful ignorance should be ridiculed.

      You said, "Nevertheless, her belief in God and your belief that there is no God are both matters of a belief."
      Nope. There is no evidence to support the existence of any god. That means that there is no reason to believe there are any. The fact that there is equal evidence for the christian god as there is for the Tooth Fairy, means that they are roughly equally likely to exist.

      Even if I proclaimed there to be no gods, my position would be far more reasonable than one that proclaims there to be one (or more). The non-believer has all the evidence, or the lack thereof, on his/her side.

      You said, "You will say yours is based on evidence. And hers is based on ignorance."
      Main is based on the complete and utter lack of evidence. His/hers is based on irrational beliefs.

      You said, "But you cannot be sure. Deep down, you know this."
      There is a non-zero chance that there are gods, somewhere. I don't rule that out. There is no indication, whatsoever, that any of them, if they exist, are in any way interested in us. The christian god, having pretty specific attributes, is almost certainly impossible to exist.

      The far more reasonable explanation for the existence of god-lore is that ancient man couldn't explain things around him. He didn't know where thunder came from, so it must have been a spirit in the sky. He didn't know how the sun rose, so it must ave been a fairy in the sky. Just because the fairy tales got retold and more outrageous doesn't mean they're real.

      Parts of the Old Testament are correct because it a history of the military conflicts of the Jews as they took over what is now Israel. Other than that, there is nothing accurate about it.

      So God died to rescue his creations from the sin he cursed them with. That makes so much sense.

      Provide evidence and I will convert on the spot. I doubt though, that you comprehend the concept of evidence.

      What would those reasons be?

      You said, "Atheism is no more reasonable than theism."
      Bullshit. Theism is as reasonable as a belief in the Easter Bunny, as there is equal evidence for it and gods. Atheism simply rejects the obviously outrageous claims. Not believing in imaginary friends like your god, or Jesus, is just as reasonable, or even more so, than not believing in the monsters under your bed.

      You said, "You don't know what his/hers is based on."
      (S)he proclaims a belief in creatures for which there is no reason to believe they exist. They are irrational.

      You said, "The christian god, having pretty specific attributes, is almost certainly impossible to exist.
      why?
      "
      Contradictory traits attributed to a creature make it impossible to exist. It is impossible to be both omnipotent and omniscient. It's impossible to both know the future, and be able to do something about it.

      You said, "Thats what I used to think, too."

    • Rational Thinker

      This country was not founded on the dictates of a Christian God.

      In fact, one of the founding principles of this country is the free practice of religion. Since several recognized religions (including several christian churches) actively marry and support gay marriage, making a law that bans the legal acknowledgement of gay marriage inhibits that free practice.

      BTW, several countries have legalized gay marriage and have not been blasted off the face of the earth. Just saying...

    If God is powerful enough to create the universe, don't you think he'd have a more foolproof way of getting his exact message across to future generations than this endlessly translated, edited, confused, modified, twisted, corrupted book of stories that is changed by religious power brokers to suit each generation?

    Wouldn't god's word be carved on the moon, unchangeable and for all to see? Wouldn't it be spoken unchanged by a species of animal? Wouldn't it be written microscopically on every stone or every tree? Wouldn't there be some space age material that had god's voice recorded, uncorrupted over the centuries and there for everyone to hear.

    Wouldn't there be parts of God's word that reflect computers or artificial intelligence or DNA or modern medicine or future medicine or electricity or space travel to other parts of this amazing universe he created? Wouldn't there be talk of gender and race equality? Wouldn't there be talk of Asia and Australia and the Americas and Europe and Africa?

    Instead the bible is limited to horses and carts and herbs and grain and swords and shields and misogyny and racism and slavery all set in the deserts of the middle east. The Bible is so obviously a product of bronze age man, you must be in denial to even argue that it is the word of god. There may or may not be a god or gods, but this book of bronze age voodoo and oppression has nothing to do with him, her or them.

    And stop it with this "not the word of god but words inspired by god" cop out. That just means it was written by greedy, evil men who got their way by claiming that god told them to do something. That's a self serving scam that should be laughed, especially by anyone claiming to love an omnipotent god. That scam is an abomination and an insult to your god ... as is the bible!

    Truth is, no one can be sure that hom.ose.xua1ity meant anything to anyone more than just a priest writing those parts of the Christian book. All this fuss is just Christians need to judge others!

      You obviously haven't read it. All of your statements are theorectical not factual. Straw man scenarios. I am sure that if you declared a reference that you are inspired by and live by I sure others like yourself would find serious issue with it being that it woul surely be written by man who for the most part doesn't understand himself much less give guidance to all of us. What code do you live by? Who is the author? Is he or she alive or dead. have researched their lives. Were they perfect. Why would you want to follow, emulate them. Do you worship them or yourself. You worship something! There is no other reference that comes close to the Bible in instructing mankind on who God is and how to live in a manner pleasing in his sight. No matter what you say, except for you own opinion which amounts to jibberish, the Bible calls it foolishness, the Bible has been a source of improving millions of lives for those who have invited our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ into their lives. Jesus loves you and has a plan for your life. Until you have done this and are indwelt with the Holy Spirit, God's word will be foolishness to you because you have not the discernment and understanding that the Holy Spirit provides. He will always be there for you come. You have the invitation as long as you have life. Don't waste your chance. Just the fact that you are here means that he is giving you a chance for eternal life. Don't squander the opportunity.

      Jesus is my Saviour,

    True, Jesus wept. Jesus has wept for a long time.

    He wept when people who purported to believe in him, raised crusades of children who ransacked and murdered but never reached their intended destination.
    He wept when people who believed in him, raised a era of inquisition forcing both Christans and Jews to convert to their brand of believing in him.

    Most recently he wept much more because people who believe in him whose mission purports to save unborn lives, arrogantly deny that the economic activities they lust after exacernates climate change conditions the kill more unborn lives. They arrogantly declare that the risk to human life is too low to be compared to the worldly excessive consumer activities they lust after, and yet every Sunday they confess "Love not the world and neither the things of the world".

    Jesus wept because many of his devout believers would rather follow the example of Esau thirst for an immediate bowl of consumerism soup than to lower the risk to unborn loves.

    I wish you were either hot or cold, but you are lukewarm ....
    Oh you all who exhibit your humility and godliness in public but yet not practice them when threatened w ith economic deprivation ....
    Do you think Jesus will greet you with "Well done thou good and faithful killers of unborn lives"?

      perhaps because marriage is and has always been a legal device...

      marriage is a legal device, not a religious one.
      get married in a church with church approval but without a gov't issued marriage license = not legally married
      get married in a courthouse without church approval but with a gov't issued marriage license = legally married

      you can add ritual and ceremony to a marriage, but it's not necessary. marriage is a legally binding contract between two people.

      why should christians define marriage by their religion? christians didn't invent marriage, fyi.

      It didnt change. It was affirmed.

      You said, "marriage is what it is. we all know what it is"
      Yup, a contract between two people.

      You said, "Civil union, ok. A wedding with full rights ok, but call it something else. Its not marriage."
      It sure is. If you want to have something just for yourself, you can use the term "religious union". You are free to use the term "marriage", but you don't get to claim it for yourself.

      You said, "A circle is a circle. And marriage is marriage."
      Exactly, it's a contract.

      You said, "Its legal maneuvering to enforce provision of benefits. Which is fine."
      No, it isn't. It's removing discrimination from the law and providing equal protection under it.

      You said, "If you say marriage is a contract between 2 people, then you are simply using the 'new' definition."
      It has always been a contract. Even your religious union (if you have one) is a contract. We just don't trade our daughters for two cows and a goose anymore.

      You said, "But why change the definition of marriage in the first place?"
      It hasn't.

      also, what's wrong with change? when something is wrong, change it, like we did with slavery. your desire to stick to a rule that's thousands of years old is just an appeal to tradition (logical fallacy) that says because something is a certain way, it must stay that way. slavery was the way of the world for thousands of years - do you promote changing it?

      but you miss the point, marriage is just a legally binding contract between two people - why should it be necessary for them to be of opposite s.exes?

      Why not? It's just a word. You seem to be a little slow, jboom.

      Provide all the benefits that come with a marriage, including a wedding to gay couples.
      This ought to be sufficient. No discrimination.

      Changing the language is not necessary. Marriage is marriage. Its what we have all know it to be.
      A car is a car. Maybe Ford could start calling their cars trucks. Its still a car though.

      Provide all the benefits that come with a marriage, including a wedding to believers.
      This ought to be sufficient. No discrimination.

      You don't own the term "marriage". You don't get to determine how it's used. You are free to coin your own term.

      jboom, if gay marriage is that offensive to you I suggest you come up with something else to call your marriage you could always get a civil union or something.

      jboom – "Separate but equal" sound familiar? Because that's basically what you're asking for...

      would he? he was just a cult leader himself, telling everyone he was the son of god, that he could do magic, that people should worship him, that the only way to heaven is through him...

      seems like he'd be happy as a clam that the cult has grown.

    If Jesus ever did come back, Christians would crucify him all over again.
