Citation needed on that bestiality thing.

Wait, so you're more afraid of gay marriage than a nuclear holocaust? Wow, someone needs to straighten out their priorities.
7/22/2011 6:12:20 AM
Hmmm. Again, a fundie voices its opinion that sticking a cock up someone's arse is much more dangerous than Nuclear fallout.
Who wants to play with my WMD?

If someone desires to indulge in bestiality, anal sex, homosexuality or any other perverted sexual act, why does it have to be made a law?
It isn't. Laws don't allow; they forbid. So he's asking the wrong thing. What he means is "why don't they make a law against it?"
As for same-sex marriage, that has nothing to do with homosexual sex. People, gay and straight, are going to continue having sex whether they're married or not, just as they always have. It's about financial and civil benefits.

You mean like the anti-slavery laws? I mean, they are unbiblical and all.

"why have more than 50 percent of Americans bought into the lie that it has to be legalized?"
Because the majority voted* for those particular legislators.
And don't you dare claim to speak for others, when your own religion isn't exactly as pure as the driven snow in such matters as sexual misdemeanours, bish. Two words: Paedophile Priests.
Ergo, you have no right whatsoever to even have an opinion on what you're complaining about. QED. The Catholic Church's own wrongdoings completely negates your own right of freedom of speech. 'Moral high ground', and all that jazz.
Can you say the word 'Hypocrisy', bishiepoos? I know you can.
*- Religious clergy aren't allowed to vote here in the UK (along with those in the House of Lords, prisoners, and the insane). Is it the same for those in the US?
Re. the differences in voting rights in the US & UK: Ah, I see. Well the House of Lords is somewhat different from Congress (ours is a Parliamentary democracy with a constitutional monarch, and all that jazz), but clergy can vote in the US? So much for 'Separation of Church and State' then. ;)
Appreciate the heads up, though, good peeps. We can learn from each other indeed. And learning can only be a good thing.
Now, if only the likes of the bish here can learn to STFU, until he & his religion can put their own moral house in order. One word: Hypocrisy.

You fundies make it sound like the government is forcing people to be gay at gunpoint when really all the government is doing is letting people use their free will (Remember that? You know, that thing you CLAIM god gave everyone? That thing you always cite as the reason why god put the tree of knowledge in the garden?) to make a legal contract with another consenting adult. That's it. Also, as others have said, you're priorities are beyond fucked up if you prefer nuclear war to gay marriage.

"*- Religious clergy aren't allowed to vote here in the UK (along with those in the House of Lords, prisoners, and the insane). Is it the same for those in the US?"
'Moose, those groups aren't mutually exclusive by any means.
7/22/2011 6:48:59 AM
Yes, because we all know that consenting adults having anal sex is way worse than nuclear holocaust.

I suggest the bishop takes a hike to Uganda or another wartorn hell-hole, if he likes wars better than queers.
7/22/2011 6:59:07 AM
I'm confused as to how anyone could find homosexuals to be scarier than disasters and wars. Especially since normal people don't find gay people scary, but disasters and wars can seriously screw things up.
7/22/2011 7:04:15 AM
So, disasters, wars and nuclear accidents are not against what your God stands for, but a lack of hate directed at persons who love someone of the same gender terrifies you? Grow up.
7/22/2011 7:05:25 AM
"What terrifies me are good men and women saying and doing nothing when politicians we voted into office are making moral laws that contradict everything a Holy God stands for."
First of all, quit bitching and read Romans. Your god put the government in place and you're supposed to shut your mouth, follow the rules and like it.
Second of all, if your omnipotent god has a problem with what they're doing I'm sure he could handle it. Since he's not, I can only conclude that he either does not have a problem with it, isn't actually omnipotent and can't do anything about it or he doesn't exist.
"If someone desires to indulge in bestiality, anal sex, homosexuality or any other perverted sexual act, why does it have to be made a law?"
I wasn't aware any law was enacted that makes such acts compulsory.
"More important, why have more than 50 percent of Americans bought into the lie that it has to be legalized?"
Bestiality is being legalized?
I think you're full of shit, dear Bishop.
7/22/2011 7:06:02 AM
I don't often bash the bishop, what with being married and all, but I have to say, Bish, I'd like to give you a choice between taking it up the arse and being fried by a H-bomb. See if you actually mean what you say, like.
7/22/2011 7:28:18 AM
It's a little different here. Clergy are allowed to vote, and members of Congress are allowed to vote. Prisoners are not, but I'm not sure about the insane.
7/22/2011 7:32:52 AM
You know, there are laws agains Pedophilia, yet there are priests and other highly regarded religious figures who just can't keep their hands (and penis) of the altar boys! which is homosexual pedophilia ...

Disasters: No problem.
Wars: No problem.
Nuclear accidents: No problem.
Government refusing to regulate what consenting adults do in private: Catastrophe.
Your moral compass has been hopelessly scrambled.

"...why have more than 50 percent of Americans bought into the lie that it has to be legalized?"
Because more and more people are putting reality before your superstitions. No wonder you're mad Richey. if this keeps up, you'll have to get a real job soon.
7/22/2011 8:06:46 AM
You simply have to be an American to take stupidity to this level!
7/22/2011 8:30:10 AM
Shut the hell up.
7/22/2011 8:36:47 AM
More important, why have more than 50 percent of Americans bought into the lie that it has to be legalized?
Because those people have a better grasp of Christian love, charity, humanity, and grammar than you do.
7/22/2011 8:37:11 AM
You moron. Bestiality is being slowly but surely outlawed (Honestly, it should be; An animal can't in any circumstances vocalize consent. Except maybe that talking snake in your Bible). Heterosexuals engage in anal sex far more regularly than you would be willing to admit, and *it is not illegal*. The laws declaring it illegal have been recognized as unconstitutional for quite some time now.
Do you know why 50+ percent of Americans have "bought in"? It's because they've cashed out of their church teachings about how they should hate their neighbour despite Jesus telling them to love their neighbour and turn the other cheek.
7/22/2011 8:54:31 AM
You think our society should throw more resources towards stopping sodomy then towards stopping nuclear war? This just shows how badly religion can warp ones sense of right and wrong.
You sir, are a ginormous douchebag.

A huge bomb just went off in Oslo, several dead. But who cares, the bomb didn't kill all the gays, right?

So you don't care about all the starving children in Africa, all the Islamic terrorists and countries which support them, and all the dictatorships in the world that to this day, 63 years after the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, go unchallenged, nor do you care about the sheer prominence of stupidity and worthlessness of the American political system or the disaster of an economy that has been going on for nearly three years, yet people voting for more civil rights for minorities is an utter disaster according to you. Talk about not having one's priorities in order. Had you been alive fifty years ago the Civil Rights Movement would've been considered a travesty, and two hundred years ago you would have been at the forefront of those saying that liberalism and democracy would cause the downfall of civilization. Get. A. Fucking. Grip.
