I think we are inviting Gods judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage, and I pray Gods mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about. --Dan Cathy
If an atheist doesn't believe in God, what is there to fear from that perceived non existent God? Why should one care what one prays for? There's no one listening.
The problem here ISN'T about gays and their "rights". Its ALL about silencing Christians.
You see, this gay "rights" issue ISN'T about gays vs straights. There are MANY straights who are not Christians, who still oppose gay marriage. In fact, I would say that just looking at numbers of "practicing" Christians in this country vs overall population, and then looking at the split of those accepting or opposing gay marriage. I'd say that Christians who hold to "traditional" marriage, are a smaller group than those non-Christians who also hold to traditional marriage.
What does one say to the group of non-Christians who also support traditional marriage???
From all indications, those opposing same sex marriage outnumber those for by over a 2:1 margin.
IF half of those opposing same sex marriage are non Christians, then the argument is SIMPLY one half of society believes in it, the other half doesn't. Its one half of societal opinion vs the other. Both halves would have equal footing.
The problem is Christians view marriage is from God. They view a redefinement of marriage as an afront to God who created man and woman, and the relationship they are to have.
That is why this isn't about gay "rights". This IS an ATTACH specifically against Christians and their beliefs and the practicing of their faith.
