Country going off cliff on same-sex marriage

DEAR EDITOR:

This letter is in response to the recent commentary by Steve Dix in the MDJ. He stated it’s time for Georgia to “get on the right side of history” concerning same-sex marriage.

No thanks. I’ll stay on the right side of morality and God’s word. The Bible teaches that homosexuality is a sin.

Homosexuality is a psychiatric condition that they choose to engage in. Legalizing same-sex marriage would be the acceptance of sexual perversion. Then do we accept incest, pedophilia and sex with animals, which are all sexual perversion?

With the legalization of same-sex marriage any type of bizarre marriage could become legal if you claim you love someone or something. There would be no valid defense against any type of marriage.

Dix states he has come to embrace and celebrate marriage equality. How can any moral person embrace and celebrate a shameful and disgusting relationship? Dix should be concerned about his son contracting the deadly AIDS virus.

The homosexuals, Democrats, corporate America and academia preach tolerance but only if you agree with them. If you support traditional marriage those anti-Christian bigots will destroy you.

The despicable people masquerading as clergy and their congregations that support same-sex marriage are wolves in sheep’s clothing doing the Devil’s work in God’s house.

This country is on the edge of a cliff about to go over. Georgia should stay on the sane side of history and not get on the right side of bad history.

I am not a gambler, but if I were, I would bet if folks had the guts to use their real name when espousing bigoted and ill-informed opinions, there would be a lot less entries posted online as comments. They would still be ignorant and uninformed, but at least it would easier to identify them so you could either avoid them or we would not have to deal with such ignorant things as this letter in printed form.

@Ho Ho Me: I don't need an excuse to use terms such as "whack-a-loon", when I am met with sheer ignorance. I will include you in the group of whack-a-loons who DON'T GET IT. Read my original post again. The whack-a-loons think in only sexual terms when discussing or posting anything related to the LGBT community. Do you think in only sexual terms when discussing the hetero community?

I agree partially with you. What a nice smelly load of Christophobia we have here.

Actually, young people are flocking to religion, and from all the remarks here, many are flocking to the religion of same sex marriage, unfortunately.

Oh, that's right, you still have not figured out that Christianity is NOT religion. No wonder you are so confused.

To Bro Jack: Thanks for making my day and giving me and my entire family a good laugh. Its hilarious that you couldn't be more wrong about me. I'm far from being a leftist and voted Republican in the last 2 elections. I just fail to see how what two other consenting adults do effects my life. Also, your post doesn't make any sense, what does abortion have to do with this subject? Or, is that just your way of working it into the discussion. Incidentally, I'm pro capital punishment...that much really mess with your head since you can't pigeonhole me into those neat little categories you have for people.

Born that way? If you ask the FBI behavioral sciences unit how people become serial killers and rapists, they cant answer that. No one can. So maybe they were born that way. And, if they were born that way, I suppose it isnt their decision whether they act on their impulses - you know, since they were born that way. So I suppose its just your bad luck if they kill or rape you...because, after all, they were born that way. What if I was born to steal or rob? Man, we better get this born that way stuff figured out. Since we have no choice but to act how we were born.

@Hawkins: OK, let's look at the "sexual perversion" practiced by the LGBT community. Oral sex, anal sex for example. You must not be aware that most hetero couples participate in one or both of these acts. You have reduced the LGBT lifestyle to perverted sex only, typical for a narrow minded whack-a-loon. The LGBT community have fears, pain, joy, careers, hobbies, homes, friends who are hetero, children, they are Christian or other, hobbies, families who love them. Of course they have "perverted sex". I guess you are not getting either of those previously mentioned acts in your house.

Lib in Cobb resorts to name calling, "narrow minded whack-a-loon."

Lib in Cobb has just lost the argument and any chance of persuading others to his point of view.

Does Lib in Cobb have anything of substance to offer?

Very Doubtful.

@Twilight: The only thing you gained from my post is "whack-a-loon". What my point is, for your edification. The narrow minded think only in sexual terms of the LGBT community. I thought I made that very clear. Read my post again, then again. I can't help but use the term "whack-a-loon", when I am met with such ignorance. Not name calling, the truth.

Mr. Hawkins,

Since you to profess that Homosexuality is a "choice", then I would love for you to be able to tell me and the rest of the world exactly when it was that you "chose" to be "straight".
Bro Jack

August 01, 2014
Marietta resident, sorry to inform you, but the "choice" title has already been claimed by some friends of yours on the political left. The abortion crowd considers all babies a "choice." Don't you leftists ever talk to each other?

Seems as soon as an article on this subject is written and out comes the Christophobes, along with the faulted logic that the gay cause is somehow similar to the civil rights struggle of the 60s.

Even a third grader can explain the difference between discrimination and someone who voluntarily chooses to live a particular lifestyle.

Johnny Hawkins, amateur mental health expert:

"Homosexuality is a psychiatric condition that they choose to engage in."

Johnny, I doubt you have a medical degree from Johns Hopkins, so I suggest you need to do your homework. The medical field ceased to classify homosexuality as a "psychiatric condition" decades ago.

Another pesky fact that drives the Johnny Hawkinses of the world crazy.

Kamrad K-Fo,

As expected, because of your left wing extremist zealotry, you can be counted on to support any cause which falls under radical extreme leftist ideology, such as this one.

Where is YOUR medical degree Kamrad K-Fo?

Mr. Hawkins,

Christians have no right in the U.S. to impose their convictions on other citizens. They can talk to them and send them printed literature, but they cannot by law impose their beliefs on others.

Same sex marriages do not hurt a Christian marriage anymore than someone who is a Hindu and gets married in the U.S.

The U.S. government and many corporations recognize same sex marriage for insurance and inheritance purposes now. It is time for every state to do the same, because of conflicts in the laws pertaining to tax returns, insurance, inheritance and the children that same sex couples have.

Segregation was favored by the so called majority for decades and it was wrong. Discrimination against same sex marriage is in the minority now according to polls and that is just another reason to uniformly grant marriage rights to same sex couples.

Err Ways Rights, in case you were not aware, it is biologically impossible for same sex couples to have children. Do you think there is a reason for that, or are you blinded by your own agenda driven ideology?

So, by your faulted logic, you say Christians have no rights? Then you claim to have all sorts of rights for yourself. Is this your idea of tolerance? Hilarious!

Instead of bellowing about all your "rights," and getting into people's faces, did you ever think of trying to win hearts and minds for your cause through gentle persuasion?

You will never change the way people think, as long as you continue to go around crushing people who do not support your views.

Your are clueless and a Christophobic.

As a Cobb County native and graduate of Pebblebrook High, I am shocked and offended by your comments towards the LGBT community. Thankfully, younger generations are helping to make the world a less hateful, mean spirited place that supports everyone's ability to find love and happiness.

I remember all too well the same arguments being made on why black and white kids could not be friends while I was growing up in Powder Springs: "God did not intend for the races to mix" I was told. How sad and pathetic.

Thankfully I grew up to be more accepting and found the ability to look for the good in people who are not like me. I hope one day you can do the same.

@anonymous: If you don't like change then leave. Move to Iraq or Afghanistan where the policies involving the LGBT community would be more to your liking. Don't let the door hit you in the tush on your way out. Not sorry to se you go. GA will one day have marriage equality for all. I suppose you were opposed to inter-racial marriages also.

Sad you would limit the rights of others because of your so called religion. Why don't you mind your own business and others live there life as they want without your hate and interference. Johnny Hawkins please crawl back in your hole.

Note to those who choose to practice the gay lifestyle. Your chances of successfully persuading others to your point of view will greatly increase, when you refrain from resorting to name calling.

Name calling accomplishes nothing, except to confirm that you have lost the argument and lost your chance to win people over to support your position. Gentle persuasion, versus in-your-face tactics, will win others over to your side.

"If you support traditional marriage those anti-christian bigots will destroy you". Lets see, no one is opposed to traditional marriage or Christianity but people are bigots for pointing out that you are bigots! Your victimhood defies logic.

@Cobb278 I thought Christianity was about love and compassion for your fellow human beings. No one is condemning Christianity, just the way some people use it for racism, hatred and bigotry.

@anonymous

Love and compassion for fellow human beings are considered good works, and good works is not what Christianity's primary purpose is. You can get good works at any religious organization. In fact, the religion of same sex marriage probably does a few good works, maybe more than a few.

@ anonymous "Christianity's primary purpose" can best be defined in Mark: 34-46 "As you do unto the least of these you do unto me".
