Quote# 85807

[Pastor Ken Hutcherson testifying against a bill in WA to legalize same-sex marriage]

I think that you are saying, as a committee and as a legislature that you know better than God, since you think that it is a very minded, bigoted, not understanding and loving thing to limit marriage to one man and one woman…If you pass this bill you’re just as narrow minded, you are just as bigoted and you’re just as unloving to everything and everyone who wants to get married outside of one man and one woman, two men and two women. But since you think God is not smart enough to make it fair, you’re saying that you’re smart enough to make it fair.

WAIT!

In the both testaments of the Bible God explicitly or indirectly allows polygamy. So isn't making legislation limiting marriage to to one man and one woman the same, i.e. thinking one knows things better than God?

@checkmate

Your mistake seems to be that you're expecting a fundie to actually have read his holy book. Simple enough mistake to make, as they always seem to have one handy- for thumping and clutching to their breast- but if you look closely, the spines of those books are all pristine, indicating never having been opened.

WORD SALAD

WHY?

No one ever tells me /why/ marriage has to be one man/one woman, and it's really starting to piss me off.

Until they give me a logical answer on that front, well, I'm ignoring the entirety of this fucking word salad.

You're the narrow-minded, bigoted, and non-understanding one here. Stop responding to people who rightfully call you a bigot by saying, "no, you!"

So God came down and gave us His almighty opinion on the matter? No. Let's be precise. Pastor Ken, a human, has given his opinion on what he believes God thinks, based on what he read in a book written by humans that some other human told him was written by God and he believed them.

Well, everything which DOES exist is smarter than those things which DO NOT exist.

Ken-dolls have no genitals.

Ken Hutcherson has no direct calls from god.

Funny how that works.

Someone needs to set up about 20 ghetto blasters to simultaneously bombard this moron's church with "Jesus, He knows me" by Genesis at Eardrum-crumbling volume.

...on loop.

Hutcherson: Opposing my right to be a bigot is bigotry!
Everyone else: Shut your face.

Mihangel apYrs

like the overwhelming majority of these arseholes he omits the words "for life" from his exposition of what "marriage" is.

Could that be because he'd immediately alienate the majority of his audience?

Your arguments are dull.

I'd trust the decisions of contemporary elected officials far more than the writings of some Bronze Age goat fuckers, thank you.

Not only God, we also know better than Darth Vader, the grinch, Freddy Krueger and other fictional villains.

Maybe he's right. Maybe we ought to focus on how God defines marriage, based on what His revelations to us in the Bible:

What? You don't like it? CLEARLY YOU THINK YOU'RE BETTER THAN GOD!

So, if you support gay people having the freedom to get married, you're bigoted, but if you support banning gay marriage, you're not bigoted?

I swear these idiots can really try to put a spin on things. But really all this amounts too is, "I know you are but what am I?"

I think someone misses the main point of consent in legal marriage.

If your church wants to marry dogs and men, that's fine, it just won't be recognized by the state, just like you don't have to marry gays, since the state is the one that must recognize it

Thinking you know better than God vs. Thinking your opinion is of God.

Choices.

In summary of what he's saying: I know you are but what am I? *raspberry*

Whoever presides this committee should be issued a big, heavy "1st Amendment/Treaty of Tripoli, bitch!" stamp to hit morons in the face the minute they start blathering about Gawd's will...

"But since you think God is not smart enough to make it fair, you’re saying that you’re smart enough to make it fair."

Well, it isn't necessarily an issue of ability (though your Bible amply proves that for a supposedly omniscient being, Yahweh isn't the sharpest hunk of cheese), but incompentence is the kindest explanation I can see, since the other one would be unwillingness. How do you prefer your god, nice but dangerously inept or unfair and assholish?

So, if I'm understanding you correctly... you're against fairness.

Well, that certainly explains alot.
