My mind has been running all day. I feel all issue-y...

I thought of an argument for gay marriage. There’s a Mormon belief that people who have sinned in the past are born into this world with dark skin. (No, that’s not the exact wording, but something along those lines. Keep in mind the time period in which the book of Mormon was written. Slavery was a common thing, and most people believed blacks to be inferior. Also, keep in mind the time period in which the Bible was written. Alot of things would seem ridiculous today.) *gasp* That means that black people are sinners.. just like gays. We should pass a constitutional ammendment to ban them from getting married, because they’ve gone against God’s will. Imagine the controversy that would bring up...

I don’t see what’s wrong with gay marriage. What are people trying to “protect”? It’s not as if they are hurting anyone, they are merely wishing to be seen as equals. If you fall in love with someone, who is to tell you that you can’t get married? Who is to tell you it’s wrong?

If gay marriage is legalized then they'd have to legalize paligomy(sp?) the act of marrying more than one person, considering that's a religious belief.. Married gays would also get the minority benefits, and therefore people could marry without even be gay just to get the benefits..

Polygamy is illegal not because of religious beliefs, but because of economic issues. Marriage is one of the best tax write-offs in existance. To have more than one wife would literally indept the government to you. Among other things.

In the Book of Mormon there was a family, and in the family there were the good sons, Nephi and Sam, and then there were the bad sons, Lamon and Lemuel. After their father died, they split into two different people, Nephites who fallowed Nephi and Lamonites who fallowed Lamon. And Lamon and Lemuel and their followers were cursed with dark skin. So not really they sinned in another life (Mormons dont believe in recreation) but their ancestors sinned. Though that was the Native Americans. Mormons also think that Black people are decedents of Cain who slew his brother Able. But yes, your point is very true. Discriminating against someone for who they are is quite stupid.

Mormons also rape their children and succumb to the alcohol quite a bit.

Such brave words coming from someone who doesn't want to be known. I don't know about the raping children, but I sure as hell drank a lot when I was still an active Mormon. I don't really think it's one religion that has people who rape children, I think its more spread out among freaks. Though if you like the raping children part, I hear the Catholics are into it.

Well.
Ok, I read this and I just had to reply (Keep in mind of course that I have nothing to say).

I believe that gay marriage and that gays in general are wrong, sick perversion of our society. I believe that all people who like the same sex should be made to go through extensive mental junk to get their minds working properly. You can love the same sex, have strong emotional bonds and all that, but when that love goes to the point of sexual feelings is when its wrong. Its not the way the worlds suppose to work, you could say it goes against nature if you want. I could go on but doesn't seem necessary, if I disapprove of the whole gay lifestyle of course I'd disapprove of them marrying each other.
