    You care to provide a legitimate source for that? And by legit I mean from a non-biased qualified authority.
    Yeah! Except it's "bias".

    Ok you agree with me, but still find some way to argue. My whole point is that it came from monkeys, which you simply restated. Good job on pointing out the obvious.
    This is what I hate about being me. I sit here and try to be as fair as possible, and some people think that I'm just trying to "find some way to argue"

    You stated a false fact, and I corrected you. It had no implication on the argument at all except to show that you fell for a rumor. If you're going to take a correction as an attack, you might as well just go because I'm not going to let false facts stand as truths if I can correct them. I think most people would consider that a noble thing to do.

    "Bias" is a noun. I used it as an adjective, in which case "biased" is correct

But a Church is an establishment built around the principles of the bible. So all Churches condemn gay marriages. Maybe not the people who go to that church, but those churches do.
    The Bible, as you may well know, is open to interpretation. The interpretation of my sister's church, Oxford United Methodist, is that gay marriages are just fine under God. That's not just the people that go to church, that's the church itself. The church's interpretation of the Bible is that God will accept you regardless of whether or not you choose to have a gay marriage

    But either way, it is a moot point because of the First Amendment.



    learn about tone and attitude.
    Why are you getting so bitter just because I corrected you? I wasn't trying to be rude. I was just trying to educate a misled mind. Why are you getting so uptoght about that?

    If this were a formal debate, I would check my attitude at the door, but this is not a formal debate and I'm only human, so excuse me for having a personality.

    Learn about trying to take things in the most positive manner when in an INTERNET FORUM. Tone and attitude are very hard to convey on an internet forum, so everything is up to interpretation.

    How could they say that?!?!?!It clearly states, "A man shall not lay with a man as he lays with a woman."Sounds like he's condemning homosexuality to me.

    Then you my friend are an idiot, because none of us here are authors, so we aren't exactly the most expressive people. Also, you don't exactly elaborate on what you are actually trying to express, everything comes off the same. What do you think the smi9lies are for?

    Tone and attitude are a lot harder to express through the written word, just use a goddamned smilie. :rolleyes: :cool: :D :p :confused: :o :eek: :mad:

    Also, you own mood will translate into how you take something. For example, you don't like TOG, so everything he types, you take as an insult. He says the word ignorant, and you go off and attack him.

    I also think you need to be de-STUPIFIED
