Can someone concisely explain the logical reason (if any) for opposition to gay marriage?
JERRY FALWELL: And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen."
PAT ROBERTSON: Well, I totally concur
I hate these hateful morans, but are these numbers really as damagins ar the article suggests? 1.1 million divided between two employees over four years amounts to a $137K salary. That's sadly more money than most of CFC's donors will ever see, but it's certainly comparable to CEOs of other large nonprofits.
Contrary to popular opinion, 'butseks' is not the sine qua non of gay sex. There are other things to do ya know.
Then you have a whole mess of ambiguity in regards to how existing laws and policies should be interpreted. If I have a policy that was written in 1980 that refers to "marriage" or "spouses" does this automatically apply to Civil Unions and Domestic Partners? When I set up my human resources database should I treat the two as equivalent or not? When I interview a household should Civil Unions and Legal Marriage be considered equivalent or two separate categories?
If life is finite, and the afterlife is infinite, then getting into heaven (eternal bliss), and evading hell (eternal torture), is waaaaay more important than anything one might do in life. And if you love someone, you should do everything in your power to help *them* get to heaven as well -- even against their (sinful) will.
Clearly, homosexuality is evil; the Bible told me so. [don't argue...] An unrepentent homosexual will burn in hell. Allowing gay marriage to be codified into law is saying "It's okay to be gay" -- which... it's NOT. If we encourage this sinful lifestyle, we're damning untold souls to hell, denying them the bliss heaven, standing at God's side, etc., etc., etc.
So it's not "bigotry" -- it's *love*. So sorry if we're making your lives inconvenient, you sinful heathens, but we're saving souls here, don't you see??
