Only a Fool Would Take Such A Strong Stand Without Research
Only a fool would take such a strong stand against Same Sex Marriage without researching the subject completely. Why? Because so much is at stake for an entire group of people. Thousands of people, of Americans are being discriminated against without good reason...but some think they are doing what is right without having done the research or the work. This is irresponsible.
Quick facts about what the Bible says about it:
1. There are only six verses in the Bible that mention a "man lying with a man".
2. In the verses where it is called an "abomination", it is clear that the Bible is speaking of the rites/practices of idol worship.
3. The Church used to marry same sex couples
Further research I have done regarding said subject can be found on The Bible Says Homosexuality.
So the United States Congress would discriminate against an entire group of people based on hearsay. I urge all of Congress to do research and read from both sides of the arguement.
Just because the church says something doesn't make it right.
*The Church said the Earth is Flat
*The Church said that the Earth was the center of the Universe
*The Church tortured and killed those who didn't agree with them
*The Church started wars in the name of God
The Founding Fathers believed that no one should push/impress their beliefs upon anyone else. That is why they believed in the separation of Church and State and religious freedoms.
Repeal the discriminatory so called "Defense of Marriage Act". Pass the Respect for Marriage Act. Pass the Uniting American Families Act. It is the right thing to do.

This is the right thing to do. Give all Americans EQUAL rights.
