Re: “With same-sex marriage all but inevitable, what's next for the gay rights movement?

Secured: " I believe that same sex unions should be recognized and provided with the same benefits as married couples." Oh really? Then why didn't you and your kind work to make sure that was the case, years or decades ago?

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

freefirezone, the Old Testament Hebrew does not actually have a word for "marry". The phrase was simply "he took a woman" and the way you "took" a woman was by being the first to have sex with her. There was no word for "wife", just the phrase "his" woman", and no word for husband except the same word ba'al used for "owner" of any piece of property or attribute. If another man has sex with "your" woman, that is adultery, a serious crime, but if you have sex with another woman, that just means you "took" another woman. There is a verb "betroth" which refers to a payment to the father for the right to take the daughter later: the law makes it clear that this already creates the property right, so that another man would be an adulterer to have sex with her. If one of your women "no longer is pleasing", you may get rid of her (this is where Jesus criticizes the Old Testament) as long as you make a public record so another man can take her without fear of adultery charge. The only exception is if you took the woman by force: then she's still yours, of course, but you cannot get rid of her, and you still owe the father money.
