    Nope! I do not speak passive aggressive! But kudos to you, you must have a lot of experience in not having the balls to mean what you say and say what you mean.

    We're not all sinners as you claimed. Do you get it? No, you don't. Go have a meltdown on your own time.

    Basically, that's my opinion, too. Government would license any couple looking for these specific benefits and protection-of-rights of spousehood under a dry legal term (civil union), and marriage would describe the personal ceremony itself, the emotional event. Speaking about it on other forums, though, some gay people still consider this discrimination. Not sure why, that wasn't my intention.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Hmm...that is odd. I mean I have always felt that regardless of the actual avenue a couple (any couple, any sex) takes, the end result is identical from a legal aspect. Wedding in a church, getting married by a judge at the courthouse, a non-denominational marriage on a cruise ship by the captain..whatever. They all end up being the same thing. I don't see how there is discrimination in that, since it's all equal.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Gays should be allowed to married as long as they marry someone of the opposite sex. ;-)

I should add everyone is a sinner, that is why Jesus Christ died on the cross. I tend to speak in general, not personal. I do not personally go around thinking ill of homosexuals. I'm sorry you got that impression.
    I think it's more the issue of "sin" framing the entire exchange to start with.

    As an example, if I said, "People shouldn't think ill of bigots or Nazis or child rapists or Christians or adulterers or mass murderers, after all we're all sinners and forgiven by God; and really, it's okay, because I don't go around holding ill will against Christians or others like this," you'd probably bristle a bit at finding yourself lumped unnecessarily (in your mind) in the middle of that laundry list of reprobates.

    You can believe what you'd like about what is a "sin" and what is not a "sin," but you should be very cognizant of the impact your words have on those who do not agree with you on what a "sin" is to start with. Fine, call homosexuality a sin; but please be aware of the likely impact of your words by how you have framed things. You would feel the same if someone called you a sinner and put restrictions on you for something about yourself that you do not believe is wrong.
