Test of Fire: Catholics Called to Witness

Test of Fire: Republicans are the Answer

I think the video makes it pretty clear what voting for one’s conscience means for the Catholic Church and that is obviously a vote for Romney.

Of course, all of us queers are supposed to scream Hate, Hate, Hate because the video calls for a reinforcement of marriage and not a redefinition of the institution.  But quite frankly, after starting out as a gay marriage supporter, I have come to the hard-bitten conclusion that standing up for traditional marriage is the commonsense thing to do.

    I agree with most of what is being said here..except I don’t think that Civil Marriage or Civil Unions is right for everyone. Also as for government getting out of the marriage bussiness, i strongly agree. However we should limit our goverment to certain things and people.. for example.. i strong believe that we shouldn’t allow Poloygomy, Man and building, or man and animals get married! Just my view on marriage:)

    WOW! That was fantastic! I almost went out for confession and I’m a Methodist. I remember when I was young and in love, many times that is, in the 70s, all of us wanted to get married; but gosh we would all have multiple divorces, which is coming for these progressive gays. I’m sure the lawyers are elated. Gay marriage just doesn’t make sense. They should use all this energy helping others. Straights don’t even want to get married anymore. I wish it were the way it used to be. Too many Sandra Flukes putting out and making sex easy and not special. People used to dress up for it, now anywhere will do.
    The video above has a broken link. I did find it here. http://www.youtube.com/user/creativelab7
    Thanks, Jeanne, that was a good one.

  3. Interesting perspective, Jeanne. As to the video, Christians (I are one) don’t have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to marriage. I believe the divorce rates are around the same as non-Christians. Not sure why gay persons would want to be a part of that. I believe Civil Unions are the way to go for everyone. If two people wish to marry, which is a religious rite afterall, then let them marry in a church. It wouldn’t be legal under the law of man, but under the law of God only. Christianity is a personal relationship with Christ. If say a Christian lesbian couple wants to get married who am I object. How do I know how Jesus speaks to their hearts?

    As usual I`ve run off the pavement and on to the gravel. Sorry for the detour.

    • Running off the pavement and onto the gravel can often take us to new interesting places, so take as many detours as you like, Terry. These social issues, including the gay marriage theme, give us lots to chew on and the more we stray from the various party lines the better.

      I say keep the damned government out of marriage. Civil Unions *are* the way to go for everyone imho. Let people take care of their marriage needs in a church or synagogue, and their legal issues with the State. Level the playing field for all consenting adult couples who want to cohabit, raise children together, own businesses, buy property, take care of each other if infirmed and leave their estates and retirement unimpeded by gender requirements. What is so freaking difficult about that? Further, stop giving special tax breaks and other benes to married couples. It’s unfair to those of us who are uncoupled – straight or gay.
