98. No, actually, YOU are wrong
Edited on Thu Jan-25-07 12:34 PM by kgfnally
and, typically, you do not see why.

Let's examine what you said that initially touched me off:

"I believe that sex before marriage is wrong...for women and men".

You have also stated that as a christian you cannot believe otherwise. What you fail you 'get' is that, by definition, you are telling me that me having sex, period, is wrong. As much as you would like to do so- probably because, if you could, you wouldn't look like a hypocrite- you cannot remove from your own original statement that fact.

Given I cannot get married because YOUR religious beliefs are being enforced, I must have sex outside of marriage. The one follows the other. Again, I cannot stress strongly enough that this is directly because your beliefs, whomever may hold them (you or someone else), are being enforced upon me right this moment, where I sit. All of this, added to what you originally said ("I believe that sex before marriage is wrong...for women and men"), makes it a very personal and very direct attack, not upon any belief I may hold, but upon me, personally, and a whole lot of other people here.

You can't say what you're saying and still claim to support us. Campaign in your church to allow gay marriage on the federal level and I might believe you.
