B. Celeste: God says homosexuality is a sin

Christians must vote “no” on Question 1 — to allow the state of Maine to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Christians should not be interested in my opinion but should, as followers of Christ, be extremely interested in what he has to say regarding homosexual behavior. For whether it be in the Old or New Testament, since God the father, God the son, and God the holy ghost are all one and the same God, what is said anywhere in his book is God’s word.

Starting in Genesis 13:13, God commented that the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the lord exceedingly. In Genesis 18:20, the lord said, “Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous.” In Genesis, Chapter 19, the wickedness God referred to was the wickedness of male on male homosexuality, male with male sodomy. It is for that behavior that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

In Leviticus, Chapters 18 and 19, God makes it absolutely clear that sex is only to be between man and woman and once again condemns, in the strongest terms, male-on-male sex of any kind.

So, why must Christians vote “no” on Question 1? They must vote "no" because God almighty has condemned the act of male-on-male sodomy, the very act of same-sex sex.

cherry picking God

If you read the Protestant Old Testament there is a very long list of laws put down by God. I will bet that they are all not being followed in churches today . So if you are not going to follow all the laws set down by God in the Old Testamnet then you can not "cherry pick" just some of them to follow and ignore the rest .

Bob: I'm not sure if you've

Bob: I'm not sure if you've actually read question one so I'll do you a solid and post the text here.

"Do you want to allow the State of Maine to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples?"

I suspect that one of us may have a reading comprehension problem here because I don't see anywhere in that question that references sex acts or sodomy. The question appears to ask the voter if they favor allowing the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, not whether or not they approve of what may be happening in the bedrooms of same-sex couples(which is none of their or your business anyway).

What Planet are you living on? As if anyone ine the World that most of us sensible Creatures inhabit have very little time to devote to Endless Crusades like your Current Crusade.

Come on Bob just how do you know what Exactly God Thought? As if you have the Inside Track. Bob here is the Update Question one will go down to Defeat by at leaset 6% or More. That is not because God opposed it but because Maine Voters are sufferring from the Fatigue of such Ballot access Measures.

I will vote Yes for personal reasons but it will be defeated.
