I think she'd make a fine first lady of Liberia or Sierra Leone. Or Kenya. Imagine the cost of secret service protection there.

Sorry Emelye, Credence is right. Sound advice.

You see, when I study the Bible, I too find inconsistencies and discrepancies.

But the inconsistency isn't with the Bible. It's with me...as compared to the Bible. It's too bad you don't see yourself that way.

"You obviously own a computer, Credence. Why should I do your research for you?" EMMY you are not too bright. I do not "OBVIOUSLY" own a computer; I may be at the library or a friend's house or other. You see when you "ASSUME" you may be totally wrong. Have you "assumed" there are contradictions in the Bible? AND, that is one CHEAP, LIBERAL, SORRY excuse for an answer ("you look it up") In other words, YOU DO NOT KNOW OF ANY. You should therefore keep your "speaking orifice " (typing) SHUT.

Seadog: Center for Immigration Studies?? The group, "which tries to style itself as the moderate think tank of the anti-immigrant movement, has undermined this image by embracing the theory, first put forward by a white nationalist thinker , that the Republican Party shouldn’t bother trying to win back Latino voters and should instead focus exclusively on turning out white voters. Not only is this strategy doomed to failure, its implicit assumption is that Republicans should turn out white voters by stirring up racial resentment against Latinos?"

PS: You can google the Prop 8 decision in California and the DOMA decision by the Supreme Court if you want to read documentation and substantiation for my opinion.

When will you start documenting and substantiating your opinions?

"Em, you say that the Declaration and the Constitution provide the basis for your poltical [sic] beliefs for the LGBT community."

No, say they provide the basis for my political beliefs regarding ALL deserving US Citizens.

The Declaration talks about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I think if someone wants to marry another person because they love them and it will make them happy, then prohibiting it because the couple are the same sex violates that right.

The Declaration doesn't form our legal system though. The Constitution does and it contains the 5th and 14th amendments that say our government cannot treat its citizens unequally without due process. This has been determined by the Supreme Court to mean that laws which inhibit the right to be treated equally must be examined under strict scrutiny. Strict scrutiny means that marriage inequality, based on the sex/gender of the marriage partners, violates the principles of the 5th and 14th amendments.

"I believe that the Bible is the Word of God and standard of truth by which all else is measured and the starting point for all things pertaining to life. "

Thank you for sharing that, apologeticsnow. I think it is not the only standard and that it is not infallible. There are too many contradictions in the Bible that keep me from considering its inerrancy. That said, there is a great deal of truth in the Bible, if you use the wisdom and discernment that the creator gave us to separate the wheat from the chaff.

That said, please tell us how the Bible, which, by overwhelming evidence, is a book very open to interpretation, pertains to the civil rights of US Citizens as granted by the Constitution? We don't have a state religion. Why should the Bible, and particularly your interpretation of it, be used to make law when not all people believe in it?

Gemini, what is it about what I am asking is so difficult to answer? If the opinions that Em is sharing are true and be accepted, then substantiating them should not be a problem.

Emelye, you have much more stamina than I could muster. I am exhausted by this thread. There is nothing you could say to get any logical response from most people on this forum.

Em, you say that the Declaration and the Constitution provide the basis for your poltical beliefs for the LGBT community. There is no question that the Declaration states that all men are created equal with the right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. No where does it say that definitiions for marriage are equal. If homosexuals do not have grounds for getting married to each other, do they still have the right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness or does it hinge on homosexuals marrying? The Declaration cites the laws of nature and nature's God. Where can it be extracted from that document, natural law and God himself that marriage for homosexuals is included? Please provide documentation and substantiation for your opinion.

Some preachers claim Jesus and God are black men. That's a factual statement no button fondler can change.

Em, you really did not answer my question of why your religious beliefs are believable except that you choose to believe them. That is rather circular.

I believe that the Bible is the Word of God and standard of truth by which all else is measured and the starting point for all things pertaining to life.

There isn't a preacher (worth his salt) anywhere who wants any teacher to "take up any slack" for them. I suspect they are sick & tired of paying 75k-100k for the shabby bit of a work year telling some lies & some truths.
