Am I intolerant of homosexuals as people? No. They are human beings created by God. They are exercising their free will, albeit in an immoral fashion and in a manner that is clearly contrary to God's will for mankind.... I have some friends who are homosexual. I love them as people. I do not condone their behavior and orientation, nor do I have to. It is unconscionable and illogical to demand that someone tolerate behavior that they find morally reprehensible!
For a society to base it's laws on the beliefs of only one faction is ridiculous. The separation of church and state requires that biblical references not be taken into account when considering civil liberties.
I always love the God-fearing hypocrites who go off on a tangent about how God does not condone certain behavior. God also says that He will be the final judge. It is not up to us to do so. God loves all people. God is love so therefore I have a hard time believing that God will be against two people who love each other joining in marriage. It is not my place, nor yours, to judge their behavior or call them sinners. To do so would be a sin on our part.
Vermont has not made one single law pertaining to marriages in a church. The marriages authorized by Vermont are civil ceremonies only and therefore, not the tiniest little threat to your marriage, your morals or your beliefs in God.
