Incidentally, this is precisely where Jesus and religion belong.

    What if the statue on the trash heap was one of two gay lovers trying to be married?

    You’d cry bigotry and homophobia at the top of your lungs.

    Why is it okay to be an anti-Christian bigot?

    Why is it desecrating the sacred icons of a religion seen as justice instead of the purely insane hatred that it really is?

      Are you actually comparing the bashing of gays and lesbians in this country and the violation of their human and civil rights as well as their dehumanization thanks to religious/christian people everyday, to trashing the lifeless, metal statue of a fictional character from a fairy tale book and the hurt feelings of its followers and come here crying persecution, “war on Christianity” and intolerance and bigotry towards religious people? Really? Truly shameful.

      Trashing the statue of Jesus is no more desecration than trashing a statue of Frodo is – not that I know whether this particular one was put there on purpose or just found like that because someone just genuinely threw away an old statue.
      This is a typical example of persecutor crying persecution and playing the victim. And then comparing the hate gay people receive for nothing other than who they are to the hurt feelings of religious people who, at the sight of their favorite fictitious religious icon being in a junk-yard may have their delicate sensibilities ruffled.

        Christians rightfully object to gay marriage which is an obvious absurdity.

        However, Christians are called by Christ to love their neighbor.

        So if any Christians are rude to anyone, for any reason they need to change their behavior to conform to the teachings of Christ.

        The Catholic Catechism for example teaches that homosexuals are to be treated with the same respect that all people deserve.

        Being rude to someone because they are homosexual is unacceptable.

          Well as long as you are polite while subjugating and pissing on people you value as second lass human beings, then you definitely are more Christ-like than not…

            Why is it okay for people to trash Christians and their sacred symbols but it is considered hateful to do the same thing to gays, minorities, women, etc.?

            Isn’t any act of hatred despicable no matter who it is aimed at?

          Marriage is a man-made institution and has always been nothing but a financial transaction. There is nothing holy about it. Not that there s a god for holiness to make sense…as to the rest of what you say: thank you for proving my point.

            Marriage is an age old institution that conforms to human nature.

            Male and female are human nature.

            All gay people are male or female therefore share human nature.

            That is one reason why gay marriage is an absurdity.

            Marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

            If human nature is rejected so that gays can marry then anyone can marry anything for any reason.

            And that is another absurdity.

            Marriage is a social construct and nothing else. It is a contract between two or more people driven by necessity. There is nothing natural about it.

            How, why and whether two or more people choose to enter into a contract with one another is their business and choice, and not yours. Gay people/marriage do not hurt you and they do not hurt society. In fact, gay people marrying has no bearing on your right to marry or not to marry. What you are doing is denying millions of people that which you believe you have the right to by virtue of your sexual orientation which you perceive to be the norm. You view gay and lesbians as second class human beings and citizens not entitled to the same rights and protections as you simply because you do not approve of the way they conduct their lives. That is harmful and there is no basis for your position other than ignorance and bigotry.

            There is a lot of things that are nature but which we have co-opted and changed. You seem to be conflating marriage with reproduction and reproduction the basis for marriage, which is non-sense. A family can be whatever people want it to be.

            How gay people marrying would lead to people wanting to marry “anything” is unclear to me. And please don’t say “marry my dog.” Strawman. A dog is not a consenting human being and to even compare demands for marriage equality to bestiality is not only insulting and callous but right out ignorant – which seems to be theme here tonight.

            I do not know what rock you live under, but i do not have the time, or inclination, to educate you on the myriad ways in which you are deeply wrong. Seems like you are quite comfortable in your bigotry and ignorance and the ensuing hatred.

          Do I really need to explain to you the difference between a statue and a life person?
