Religion and Politics by OurHandOfSorrow Religion and Politics by OurHandOfSorrow
Keep Religion and Politics seperate?

Why? Because the last time they mixed, innocent people were burned to death.
Why? Because not everyone follows the same faith at you.

And I'm not an athiest.

Where and when does it say in the holy scripture say He ever said that?
And of course I believe Christ wanted people to follow His teachings?

Where does it say he did want it to be like that? And you don't need the Church to control the state to let people believe in it.

My question is, if your religious beliefs-the fundamental moral virtues that you believe to be truth-are supposed to be separated from politics, how then can your political decisions be formulated without a moral sounding board? I am not saying that you must be religious to be a good politician or even a conscientious voter, however, I doubt one's ability to accurately and effectively direct the course of a community or a nation while ignoring the very principles that you supposedly believe in.

I see your point.  Morals from religion aren't a bad thing.  But using those morals to justify taking away other people's rights is.  Saying "this should happen because the Bible says it's wrong" is unfair, especially because most people aren't going to share the same beliefs.

My country does not force churches to perform same sex marriages, they can easily opt out or refuse. Nice try though.

Get real.  You have the SAME rights as everybody else.  I don't see anyone preventing you to vote, own property, pay taxes, etc., just because you are a homo.  A church has every right to reject a marriage.  They are their own institution. 

If you want to get married like everyone else, why not find the opposite sex like the rest of us? 

BTW Marriage is defined between a man & a woman!  Look it up!

Marriage in the bible is defined as one man many women, so your argument is invalid.

Churches can reject marriages yes, that's why city halls exist, churches are given the right to refuse a marriage.

Plus your idea that marriage is one man one woman is pretty stupid, love is love.

Also I'm not gay, if you think that, then you're an idiot, straight people support gay marriage, I support all types of marriage, not just gay marriage.

Contragulations!  You supporting buggery, which is exactly what caused the AIDS 80s epidemic

20 yrs of queer propaganda can't change 3000+ yrs of human evolution.  It isn't rocket science.  It takes man & woman to create society.  Man + Woman = Child.  This process is repeated recursively.  The instution is define as such to provide a mother & a father for the child.  Children do better with their biological parents.

Plus I don't care what the government says what is & what isn't marriage.  hell, they can call dogs "cats" for all I care.  The point is CHURCHES should be the ones who decides who gets married & who doesn't.  (Plus I'm not going to call it "marriage" either because man/man & woman/woman isn't a real marriage anyways)

BTW I got my definition of marriage from a dictionary.  Not the Bible

So what about women who (like me) don't produce eggs and cannot have children?...

Who's to say me and my girlfriend can't be married by the state?
Just because I don't believe in god doesn't mean I don't have the right to be wed to my significant other...

Besides have you even looked at the statistics on marriage? I mean really looked at them?
Half the straight folk aren't even married to their significant other, are always bitching and bickering about each other, to the point where even the family dog, or cat as you say, has to deal with the everyday burden of a dysfunctional family... 
I'm not saying there aren't straight people out there who have a good well put together life... 
But when you look at the statistics on "queers"...
Most of them have been ridiculed, beaten, and spat upon... and still they fight to marry their significant other
that's how important it is to them... 
Churches shouldn't be the only ones to decided whether or not a couple, be it gay or straight, can get married.

How exactly did homosexuallity cause AIDS? It's a sexually transmitted virus... meaning any gender can spread it to any other gender...

Love isn't about having babies, you ignorant scumbag. And neither is it about finding the opposite sex. Grow a pair or get off the Internet.

Uh, being gay didn't cause the AIDS virus, and to say that being gay is the cause of AIDS is incredibly asinine, it's not a virus exclusive to gays.

Your logic of man + woman= child is irrelevant, what if I don't want a kid, what if I want to be with the love of my life (gay or straight) for the rest of my life, and I love the fact you refer to gays as homo-fascists and say that kids do better with biological parents, it makes no difference.

And your definition depends on the dictionary, just because the dictionary says it doesn't mean it's 100% true, marriage is a union between 2 people.

Each country has its own affairs. Each country has the choice whether to separate religion from politics or keep them together. My country keeps them together, so no one from another country can say to my government "Separate religion from politics cuz religion is evil!". My country has been like this for forty one years without any problems (FYI: Our National Day is on December 2nd)

Why would it do that? Islam has been the dominant religion here even before the union between the emirates was made. It had been like this for over 1400 years.

For my country, no. For another country, it's not my business to decide. Of course, shifting of the dominant religion in my country is highly unlikely. We'd get put out of the Islamic nations organization if that happened. 

I never meant any offense to other religions, by the way. It's just that I'm more comfortable with the current ruling system.

And btw, I love the movie Atlantis as well.:) My favorite character is that digger guy (can't remember his name.XD)
