ironic

Excerpt from Orange Juice (a blog):

Rove, whose stepfather Louis Rove came out of the closet late in life, has a long history of bashing gay marriage.  Check out this Rove quote:

“Well, marriage is a very important part of our culture and our society. If we want to have a hopeful and decent society, we ought to aim for the ideal. And the ideal is that marriage ought to be and should be a union of a man and a woman. And we cannot allow activist judges to overturn that. We cannot allow activist local elected officials to thumb their nose at 5,000 years of human history and determine that marriage is something else.” ~ Karl Rove, on Fox News

So gay marriage is bad, but dumping your wife after 24 years is OK?

    I’d say both are wrong.

    Divorce & its acceptance in our culture is heartbreaking. And it is most definitely outside of God’a ideal for us. But so is gay marriage. I’d argue our hypocrisy and sin doesn’t negate the Truth (thank God, because I wouldn’t be able to share or speak any Truth with the world.)

      regardless of what some may believe or not believe (around the world the percieved “god’s ideals of marriage” are vastly different) but considering that “freedom” is the point of the US constitution (yes, that’s debatable) and the separation of church and state is clearly an important differentiation it shouldn’t *matter* what god’s ideals are as far as the government is concerned.

        Calais,

        You are right it doesn’t matter what the worlds god’s ideals are.

        However, it matters significantly what God,s ideals are.

        There is freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

        I don’t see where “freedom is the point of the constitution.

        However in the 1st Amendment, the first freedom is:

        Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

        That is before speech, press, assembly, or redress.

        Seems like a lot is a lot out of wack.

        Love

        Bill

          bill, i agree – a lot is out of whack. but concerning the first amendment, “congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”…i see that as a direct reason why gay marriage should be legal. most support for the current definition of marriage comes straight out of the Christian bible, so therefore it seems to me that the law is “respecting” an establishment of religion. and by making gay marriage unlawful they are prohibiting a religion (loosely defined as something one believes in and follows devotedly – a point or matter of ethics or conscience). The thing I still can’t understand is why some Christians are *so* threatened by gay marriage but seem to have no problem with so many of the issues in their own life – one of which includes a divorce rate AS high or by some statistics HIGHER than that of the general population.
