It’s amazing how ignorant the average person is about the ramifications of gay marriage on their own families. They float through life with the “why shouldn’t they be married”, pie in the sky mentality. Relativism, as Pope Benedict XVI has often said, is the greatest threat to our christian faith.

I think folks in Maine have awakened from their stupor - and not just the Catholics. One of the gays said that they wanted to know the name of every person who voted for it, implying that some retribution was going to be taken. But I’d bet that when a bunch of university gay folk show up at a dairy farm out there - they’re going to be outgunned, literally.

These political gays live in their own stupid little world.

The Catholic Church is still fairly powerful in Maine. Protesters likely don’t want to poke that particular sleeping lion.

just imagine how “comfortable” the margin would have been if every gay couple’s dogs and dead parents didn’t vote!

Too bad these folks don’t channel their energy to solving the world’s problems, such as hunger and war, to name two.

The Church (all faiths) must keep on keeping on. Maybe some day these “activists” will get the message that most people don’t want gay marriage.

After Maine, where the Catholic church actually organized a second collection to raise money to prevent gay people from having civil rights, the situation shifts again. Using a tax-exempt church to raise money to defeat the civil rights of fellow citizens is not too shocking in the age of Benedict. It is shocking if one believes in a separation of politics and religion, and if one believes that the church of Jesus should stand in solidarity with the marginalized, rather than seeking to marginalize and demonize them still further.

Say what? Separation of politics and religion? Haaaa, Haaaaa,Haaaaaa Jesus supporting gays? Haaaaa,Haaaa,Haaaa

Who else would they attack but the church. Even though the general population voted them down, they know what GOD said about their life style. By attacking the church they are attacking God. Not a fruitful venture in the long run.

Last I checked, 31 states have voted down gay marriage. Why aren’t they complaining and attacking the churches in those states as well.

The GLBT fifth column thinks it can shame or harass the margin of loss into voting their way.

In aftermath of Maine, gays step up their attacks on the Church

Does this mean the opposition of gays toward the Catholic Church's tenet now stands at 110%?

The anger displayed by gays seeking affirmation and approval of their relationships as normal and natural used to surprise me. I have wondered why?

It is of interest to me that the rise of the demand for “gay marriage” correlates to the rise of lesbianism, female homosexuality. It is natural for women to want children and to have a partner in the care of raising those children.

Yet, due to the nature of the homosexual union, reproduction is impossible. Artificial means must then be used. Likewise, marriage, as it has been defined and understood for centuries, is between a man and a woman.
Therefore, “gay marriage” must also be achieved by artificial means. As is evident, the voting public is not ready to grant gays that sanction, so they have turned to the courts to impose it. It would therefore follow, that acceptance must also then be artificially imposed.

I submit that the anger stems not from the fact that society has not gleefully adopted the homosexual agenda, but rather a kind of self aversion in the subliminal knowledge that the natural things they desire cannot be attained by their unnatural sexual desires.

It is projection and transferal of blame. Like a spoiled child angry when its parents won’t consent to what is bad for the child and the family.

I believe that even should gays gain the “marriage” they seek, they will still find themselves angry and bitter. Remember it was once enough to be able to practice the “alternative lifestyle” free of discrimination. No matter the concessions, they will never be happy as it will never be enough to quell the knowledge that their sexual desires are disordered under the laws of nature and not just the laws of God.
