    Religious people are not any more moral than athiests.
    No one group of christians is any more moral than any other. Some are demonstratably less moral, but none more moral.
    Children see this, and they are rejecting religion.
    It is a christian lie that America is experiencing moral decay.
    We are advancing as a society, and getting rid of the more bigoted religions is part of that advancement.

      That wasn't mama, that was grandma, and when she wore combat boots that was all she wore.

      But she relected hypocritical churches and lived by the golden rule, so we loved her.

    And again the nitty-gritty:

    o "Abrahamics" believe that their god created all of us and of course that includes the g-ay members of the human race. Also, those who have studied ho-mo-se-xuality have determined that there is no choice involved therefore ga-ys are ga-y because god made them that way.

    To wit:

    1. The Royal College of Psy-chiatrists stated in 2007:

    “ Despite almost a century of psy-choanalytic and psy-chological speculation, there is no substantive evidence to support the suggestion that the nature of parenting or early childhood experiences play any role in the formation of a person’s fundamental heteros-exual or hom-ose-xual orientation. It would appear that s-exual orientation is biological in nature, determined by a complex interplay of ge-netic factors and the early ut-erine environment. Se-xual orientation is therefore not a choice.[60] "

    2. "Garcia-Falgueras and Swaab state in the abstract of their 2010 study, "The fe-tal brain develops during the intraut-erine period in the male direction through a direct action of tes-tosterone on the developing nerve cells, or in the female direction through the absence of this hor-mone surge. In this way, our gender identi-ty (the conviction of belonging to the male or female gender) and s-exual orientation are programmed or organized into our brain structures when we are still in the womb. There is no indication that social environment after birth has an effect on gender ident–ity or s-exual orientation."[8

    3. See also the From the Philadelphia Inquirer review “Gay Gene, Deconstructed”, 12/12/2011. Said review addresses the following “How do genes associated with ho-mose-xuality avoid being weeded out by Darwinian evolution?”
    "Most scientists who study human se-xuality agree that gay people are born that way. But that consensus raises an evolutionary puzzle: How do genes associated with h-omose-xuality avoid being weeded out by Darwinian evolution?"
    http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/evolution/Gay-gene-deconstructed.html

    Of course, those gays who belong to Abrahamic religions supposedly abide by the rules of no adu-ltery or for-nication allowed.

    And because of basic biology differences said monogamous ventures should always be called same-se-x unions not same-se-x marriages.

    To wit:

    From below, on top, backwards, forwards, from this side of the Moon and from the other side too, ga-y s-exual activity is still mutual mas-turbation caused by one or more complex s-exual differences

    Yes, heteros-exuals practice many of the same "moves" but there is never a doubt who is the female and who is the male and who is the husband and who is the wife.

    As noted, there are basic biological differences in gay unions vs. heterose-xual marriage. Government benefits are the same in both but making the distinction is important for census data and for social responses with respect to potential issues with disease, divorce and family interactions.

    • Reality

      And why should we care what two cons-ens-ual adults do in privacy??

      For both heterose-xuals and ho-mo-se-xuals:

      The reality of se-x, abortion, contraception and STD/HIV control: – from an agnostic guy who enjoys intelligent se-x-

      Note: Some words hyphenated to defeat an obvious word filter. ...

      The Brutal Effects of Stupidity:

      : The failures of the widely used birth "control" methods i.e. the Pill (8.7% actual failure rate) and male con-dom (17.4% actual failure rate) have led to the large rate of abortions and S-TDs in the USA. Men and women must either recognize their responsibilities by using the Pill or co-ndoms properly and/or use safer methods in order to reduce the epidemics of abortion and S-TDs.- Failure rate statistics provided by the Gut-tmacher Inst-itute. Unfortunately they do not give the statistics for doubling up i.e. using a combination of the Pill and a condom.

      Added information before making your next move:

      "Se-xually transmitted diseases (STDs) remain a major public health challenge in the United States. While substantial progress has been made in preventing, diagnosing, and treating certain S-TDs in recent years, CDC estimates that approximately 19 million new infections occur each year, almost half of them among young people ages 15 to 24.1 In addition to the physical and psy-ch-ological consequences of S-TDs, these diseases also exact a tremendous economic toll. Direct medical costs as-sociated with STDs in the United States are estimated at up to $14.7 billion annually in 2006 dollars."
      See also: http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/26/opinion/bolan-se-xual-health/index.html?hpt=hp_t4

      And from:
      "Adolescents don’t think or-al se-x is something to worry about (even though is becoming a major cause of throat cancer)," said Bonnie Halpern-Felsher professor of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco. "They view it as a way to have intimacy without having 's-ex.'" (Maybe it should be called the Bill Clinton Syndrome !!)

      Obviously, political leaders in both parties, Planned Parenthood, parents, the "stupid part of the USA" and the educational system have failed miserably on many fronts.

      Dyxlexic, I think most Christians believe god is the blessed controller of all things when they need to feel better about something bad happening–like a young person's death or that sort of thing. On issues of politics and social climate, they think we overrule god's desires with the free will that they think he gave us even though many scriptures (Romans 9 and others) do not allow for such an excuse.

      so Christians worship a god who, even though he has said in his book that certain things are forbidden, is powerless to stop them from happening. He is a very impotent god isn't he?!

      The SCOTUS didn't "say" out loud that they are bigger than god. What Huckabee meant is that they feel they are bigger than god by their actions. It's hyperbole on Huckabee's part, not an exact quote. Do you really don't understand that or are you just trolling?

      But he will come, without delay:

      8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

      9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us- ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

      What was meant by that comment is that regardless of what is 'ruled' by the courts, just like with abortion, people will not 'give up' or 'stop fighting' it. Its 40 years later and those that are against abortion are still campaigning to overthrow it. When you interfer with someone's basic beliefs, they go down fighting and don't stop until they are put down permenantly. The 'fight' may be over as far as the courts are concerned.

      @ Tom, patience. It takes time to overcome the word filter and compose a proper response. Sadly, my url got flagged and won't post. Go check out foxnews and the opinion articles.

      Here's my previous attempt to post:

      Why on earth would you want a source on an opinion piece? All that will happen is you disagree with the opinion, cite your own opinion and then start flinging insults and accuse of bias towards the author and the website hosting them. The opinion pieces are biased, which is the point of an opinion piece. I read them to get an understanding of both sides of the story, try and get behind why they think like they do and how their beliefs tint the world they see around them.

      Or perhaps, you just think I'm making this up. Doesn't matter, I'll post the link, just hope the word filter doesnt flag it:

      That isn't what you did, you dishonest ass. You claimed that you had authority. If you have information that your statement is based on fact, cite it.

      I doubt you do, or you'd have done so without prevaricating. Thanks for playing. Again, dear, for your information, it's POLYGAMY.

      June 26, 2013 at 7:24 pm |
    • Jonathan

      **Forgive the overt use of punctuation. The fi-lter is working overtime to censor me**

      @ Tom. Whats with the sudden host-ility? Did I pre-empt your rant before it got started so that you have to resort to name calling? I never claimed authority nor did I claim my statement was based on fact. I claimed to know what a spec-ific comment (someone's opinion) meant and went into a bit more detail.

      And I ignored the poly-gamy thing prev-iously because I thought you were mistaken but you keep pressing the is-sue. Where did I mention polyg-amy in this short, but brief, 4-5 post reply to John Stem-berger? I certainly do not recall doing so and found no evidence of that.

      I certainly am not attempting to give va-gue answers or redirect someone away from the truth. I stated that the word fil-ter prevented my posting of the url, which is true since the link contains the word 's.e.x' (in same s.e.x marriage). If you don't want to sacrifice a small amount of time to find the piece I referenced, that is a personal issue you have to deal with. Stop projecting.

      @Tom: What does anyone caring about my schedule have to do with my previous comment? Are you going to ignore my rebuttal just so you can take a cheap shot at my self esteem? Juvenile tactics only work on the weak willed and uninformed. I post that comment to give you ample warning that I would not be to respond for a good bit of time, so that you don't resort to another attack on my speed of reply and claim I walked away from the debate. I was being considerate and you failed to return the civility.

      As for my views on gay marriage; I don't believe I posted anywhere in this brief dicussion what those are. Regardless of my beliefs or opinins, I have as much right as anybody to vocalize them, just as you have a right to disagree.

      As for the use of a familiar term of my name 'Johnny', please do away with that. We should keep all this formal so that there is no excuse down the line that when one of us starts feeling personally targetted (which seems to happen a great deal of the time when name calling and put-downs get thrown around), we can bypass the situation entirely.

      You won't be able to put me on the defensive. I do not have that much emotion invested in the debate as you might think.

    Mock me...go ahead...it's your right to do so. Take note though, it is biblical. It is happening. Don't take my word for it, take THE WORD for it. Read it, seriously. Spend some time and take a look around at what is going on. When you're done, go back to your lives and continue to celebrate days like today.

    ...but remember my words from today...they could save your life in the not so distant future.

    Oh you'll have hell on earth to deal with, but remember, it won't be too late. God will allow you to choose Him until the very end...and then He will honor your choice to NOT choose Him.

      That's right, and the United States overruled God on slavery a long time ago. The Christians will go kicking and screaming until the last of their control on society has been removed.

      OK, yesterday, I was looking for a white politician to claim 5 White Guys In Robes were committing "Judicial Activism" (regarding the Voter's Rights Act). What a #hypocrite

    Those giving religious responses completely miss the point. The SCOTUS rules on the legality of laws using the US Consti.tution as the primary basis; not 'mob rule', as Christians would prefer....so long as they hold the majority view. DOMA was not only unconsti.tutional, but it violates the oh so sacred notion of ultimate freedom in this country....something conservatives claim to be all for when it comes to guns and religion, but not when it's freedom for those of different perspectives.

      Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

      1 Timothy 1:9

      Revelation 2:14  

      But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

      Amen.

      We live in a secular United States, HeavenSent. You may certainly live according to God's laws; you may certainly NOT try and codify them into our secular law. This is one reason DOMA is unconstitutional.
      Thoth is absolutely correct.

      What word is it that you are giving the meaning of, HS? And what dictionary are you using? And how does anyone else's s.ex life affect you at all?
      I'll tell you one thing: it doesn't affect the SECULAR LAWS of our US. Sorry, sweetie.
      And do stop using the old beasiality angle. It shows a lack of understanding on your part of the meaning of "informed consent".

      The only action HS gets is what she talks about on here. So no wonder she's always at it.

      ...gay folks are heaven sent, since they, too, were born of women...ooooops.

      Gay folks live this life because they reject Jesus' truth. God didn't make them gay. They made themselves gay.

      oOo, are you trying to say gay folks are brain dead? If not, then their minds did this because they care less to focus on Jesus' truth.

      I think we know who's brain dead here, HS. Your posts at the top of the page reveal your carelessness. It goes hand-in-hand with foolish gullibility.
