    The federal government must not have the power to discriminate against Christians who uphold the Word of God as infallible Truth and, in obedience to its teachings, refuse to accept the concept of "gay marriage" as binding upon their actions and speech. Christians have strong convictions that God instituted marriage between one man and one woman ONLY. I am in complete agreement with Countable member Barb K., who said: "...It's not natural for a man to marry a man or woman a woman. It's not that it's just how God made us, but the very fact that it is impossible to survive as a race of homosexuals. They cannot procreate. There never has been a culture that existed on homosexuality. Marriage's ultimate design is to give birth, grow and protect the next generation. Giving homosexuals rights, freedoms, and equal status in our culture is good and right, but to grant them the right to legally marry is against human nature. It is not hateful to set these limits on marriage. [Give] them a right to a legal partnership but not legal status as married...." Our religious convictions reflect our desire to live in a right relationship with our Lord and Savior, “who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” (Philippians‬ ‭2:6-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) As loyal and patriotic citizens of this great nation, we Christians are also taught: “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.” (Romans‬ ‭13:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) But when governments enact laws that conflict with God's Word, we have this example of Christ's own apostles: “But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: 'We ought to obey God rather than men.'” ‭‭(Acts‬ ‭5:29‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) Therefore, we entreat our lawmakers to not force us to have to choose between God and the law of the land!

    @Loraki said it perfectly. Please read her post. God had it figured out before that tree put on blooms. And why did Adam donate that rib? It's all in the plan of Man

    I'm an atheist but I believe people should be able to have the freedom to believe or worship how they like, government shouldn't punish that.

    Marriage is a religious term. Without religion there would be no marriage. The government needs to get out of the marriage business and put it back where it belongs, between the individuals and their creator.

    In a free market they will simply go out of business.

    We don't discriminate when we ask religions to abide by our laws.
