Re: LGBT MITM Fans
I think one of the main problems is the interchangeable nature of the terms marriage and wedding/ wed. Marriage refers to the civil liberties and rights and the recognition of a couple in the eyes of the law having evolved from the religious term. The term wedding or to 'wed' someone or alternatively a marriage of 'holy matromony' refers to the religous arena. Therefore Tony (I don't want it to seem like anyones ganging up on you, I happen to disagree but it's the same way that I disagree with those who say Lost is a clever program ) I think you're possibly true in saying that gay people cannot have a wedding, however, I personally feel they should be able to marry- as this is political rather than religious.
I've separated my next point as it's possibly more controversial than previous comment (so please feel free to mod. it). If everything in the bible is interperated in its literal sense then surely you would in fact be somewhat xenephobic and against those of different religions and cultures? I personally am agnostic (I suppose Malcolm in fact says it best in 'malcolm dates a family'- 'I'm a hopeful agnostic' but I guess this is a kind of selfish religious belief. Finally, on a more frivillous note, if you're an atheist, how are you sworn in when testifying in a court of law?
