Why Does Gay Marriage Lose at the Polls?
A RECENT BLOG EXCHANGE:
answer may have to do with voter turnout. People who support gay
marriage, or at least don't actively oppose it, are less likely to make a
special trip to vote on the issue. Those who genuinely (if absurdly)
believe that gay marriage is a threat to their own straight lifestyle
are motivated to show up. Double that for those who believe their god
Me: To The Texan: You are sort of right. The irresponsible
citizens don't always vote --and they are often the ones too ignorant to
see that marriage matters. You think gay marriage is opposed just
because it is a threat to straight lifestyles? Let's say homosexuality
IS a threat to heterosexuals --say in the case of the Episcopalian
minister who left wife and kids to be with his male lover --and then the
church elevated him to bishop. She might consider homosexuality a
threat to her life and happiness and marriage. I would if I were her.
I'd be furious if my husband wanted to get his jollies with anal or oral

of gender." This is all total bunkum and should never be entertained
in mind or media or society --in any way at all. We shall reap what
We don't just BELIEVE our God opposes gay marriage. It's obvious
from our design that we were NOT designed for homosexual coupling. We
are designed to couple with, and parent with, the opposite sex --only.
And God's Word is clear in Romans 1 --also Leviticus. But nature tells
us --even if there are aberrations in fallen nature --like the dog
humping our legs --- the dog is still designed to hump a dog --not our
Likewise, all men are designed for copulation with women --not each other.
Nevertheless, God forgives the repentant sinner --and all of us have sinned. But that's no excuse for legitimating sin via gay marriage.
