Why ‘Gay Marriage’ is Evil

"Just because we have always done it that way, doesnt mean we should continue" Great: -abortion is reprehensible and immoral; it should stop -the homosexual lifestyle is clearly detrimental to its practitioners; it should be discouraged -tobacco is harmful and has been smoked for centuries; let's ban it. -marriage, as defined by God, makes gays and others living aberrant lifestyles FEEEEL bad; let's redefine marriage. (rather flawed "logic," don't you think?)

Amy, marriage has always been the union of opposites. Jesus Himself defined marriage as one-man-one-woman. Are these some of the "demonstrably false things" to which you refer? And do you really think I'm "seeking to control the actions or attitudes of others"? I'm simply responding to the attempts at totalitarian redefinition of marriage imposed by un-elected judges. The norm in the world before the Torah was child sacrifice and women viewed as property. The Judeo-Christian model for marriage was simply offered as a superior way to provide for the treatment of women and children as the precious treasures God created them to be.

Rather than "ignore the historical inaccuracy" why don't you specify where I am inaccurate? HINT: Look at the history of the federal government's response to Utah's petition for statehood prior to the Mormon church moving away from polygamy and adopting the Christ-approved model for marriage. Once Mormon doctrine on marriage conformed to Christian doctrine, the federal government granted statehood for Utah. This episode in American history is proof that the definition of Christian marriage has always been recognized by the secular government of this Christian nation.

Gay "marriage" isn't marriage. To call it evil is to simply reiterate what the Bible - the arbiter of what defines good and evil - says it is evil. "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;"

"What is the purpose of calling it something else beside marriage ?" Well, since marriage (at least in this country) has always been defined as one-man-one-woman-committed-for-a-lifetime, all relationships that do not fit that definition should be called something else beside marriage. (that was easy)
It's obvious that Taft did not read the column. No one wants to restrict Moore's freedom of speech; we just want the freedom to ridicule his stupidity --- THEN we want to tell him, "Shut up, stupid!" We don't want a law restricting his freedom; we just want the freedom to try to shame him/her (I really can't tell) into silence.

Obama's State of Disunion

"until the two kissing-cousin parties are finally united and we are allowed to have another party that provides the American people with an actual alternative" Woz, the only way that will happen is for a strong conservative leader, like Reagan, to take over the GOP, bring in mainstream Americans who are conservative-but-don't-realize-it, and transform the GOP into a traditional-America conservative Party. At that point, the only home for RINO's and GOP moderates will be in the Democratic Party. The GOP would then become the dominant political party and the Democrats would be relegated to permanent minority status. That leader does not appear to be on any near horizon. Of course, I believe none of this can happen unless there is another Great Awakening of national proportions. Hope you're a praying man, Woz.

Mark-Johnne, are you a supporter of Ron Paul? The tone in your comments is eerily similar to that of Dr. Dement -- er, I mean Dr. Paul.
Jesus said: “Haven’t you read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall join to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh?' So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, don’t let man tear apart.” Jesus gave us the definition of marriage and OUR country, since before its founding, has adhered to this definition. Since Jesus defined marriage, He's the only One who is authorized to redefine marriage. So, no matter what any judge says, marriage that is anything other than male-female is not marriage.

Nothing in this column over which to argue with Prager. He continues to state the obvious and his facts are irrefutable. It's sad that the obvious needs to be stated, but the far-reaching influence of clouded leftist thinking makes it necessary for men like Dennis Prager to continue to voice the clear, unvarnished truth. Press on, Mr. Prager, press on.
