The activities inherent in so-called gay marriage are Mortal Sin. The push for gay "marriage" is the demand to accept and even celebrate mortal sin. When governments command acceptance of mortal sin, that is no different than the ancient Romans commanding Christians to deny Christ..."Bow down to this idol, or die."

You're the one who asked if all Americans should be required to go to church on Easter since doing otherwise might be a mortal sin.

Since liberals always need to have the obvious explained, the answer is, of course, 'no'.

But you think that all Americans should be required to approve the designation of matrimony to couples which consist of two men or two women.

You make a false equivalency.

Not every church recognizes the concept of Mortal Sin., so it appears you aren't talking about the same thing as abennett

No church in America requires that ALL Americans join it.

Should we require that ALL Americans be required to approve SSM or be labeled bigots?

In teh CAtholic CHurch, not making your Easter Duty used to be a Mortal Sin. Should we require that of all Americans?

“It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is,” said the smooth-talking, skirt-chasing, totally busted philanderer.

“Well, no, Bill,” replied Congress. “Actually, things just ‘is’ what they is.”

Here’s what marriage is: The God-ordained, lifelong, covenantal union between man and wife, designed to provide men, women and children optimal stability and overall well-being. Marriage is that biologically, spiritually and morally centered institution calculated to ensure responsible procreation and perpetuate the human race. Marriage – real marriage – represents the fundamental cornerstone of any healthy society (any society that hopes to survive, at least).

Here’s what marriage is not: Anything...
