"A Day Without A Gay"

Some same-sex marriage supporters are urging people to "call in gay" Wednesday to show how much the country relies on gays and lesbians.

Organizers of "Day Without a Gay" are also encouraging people to perform volunteer work and refrain from spending money.

One organizer says he's been getting 100 e-mails an hour from people looking for volunteer opportunities.

But some gay-rights activists are concerned that skipping work
and not spending is a bad idea given the sad state of the economy.

The protest would coincide with International Human Rights Day
and is modeled after similar work stoppages by Latino immigrants

    Most of you people are so bigoted and full of hate. I'm sure you've sinned before, have you not? And after each time you've sinned, have you repented? I believe not. How is one sin worse than any other? They are all mistakes in the eyes of God. And, forgive me if I'm wrong, but I do believe that the only unforgivable sin is suicide. Therfore, you are not the Lord himself, and cannot damn me to Hell. Homosexuality is not wrong, and its not unnatural. Look up on YouTube, the Top Ten Reasons Gay Marriage Should Be Illegal. And listen. By the way, its satire, for those who can't understand.

    Mike, we may not appreciate the homosexual lifestyle but neither should we wish them dead. I pray they come to understand just how truly deceived they are and the damage that is being done to the institution of marriage.

    Coach, my apology had nothing to do with you being my judge or jury (I do thank you for offering that up). However, the apology was a matter of obedience. Whether in my real time life or web life (such as this forum) obedience to the Father is my objective.

    Coach, in the previous comment I said, "I will continue to believe as I do until the Lord reveals otherwise." The funny thing about the Father is He never takes His time when showing me my shortcomings...LOL. Man, I love Him for that. I am sorry for busting your chops & giving you such a hard time. I confess to you and ask forgiveness for such a sinful display of pride and false humility. That was not very well done of me...I'm sorry.

    Coach, again I believe God is the Creator of ALL living things. I guess we differ in the titles & their meanings. ALL living things is inclusive of every animal, tree, bird everything under the sun. It's not the same as Eve being declared the "mother of all living" what was Adam's role to the living? I believe one can be a creator without being a Father. I read the Word to see where & when God first called Himself the "Father". And that happened to be when He was talking about His Son (Jesus). I know you may see it as semantics but I am not so sure that's true. Everything was recorded and inspired by God for a purpose. Saying everyone is His CHILD helps to distort the message of the cross. People then believe they do not need a Saviour. Why should they as they are already His child? I will continue to believe as I do until the Lord reveals otherwise. Maybe I just haven't grown enough in my Christian walk to see things as you do. If that's the case pray 4 me, brother, as I will 4 you.

    ANON I'm just saying that God is the Father of ALL as he is the creator of ALL living things. To say that Satan has influence over us, some more than others, is different than saying that God isn't the Father of everyone.
