As if

You'll probably win rookie of the year. Last year i had that place robbed from me so I hope you win and then you can tell me what it feels like.

In the meantime you could vote for me as I will vote for you.

I bet your grandparents are constantly asking why you don't have a girlfriend yet. Right?

Last Christmas, my aunt kept hounding me about where I would meet boys if I went to Smith college. So I told her I was gay. She said nothing, and hasn't talked about it since. Problem solved.

I'm sorry, I know how it feels. My parents keep pushing a relationship with my friend Erica, who also has been pushing a relationship on me, and she had been pushing her friends to push a relationship on me. I hate having to disappoint someone like that.

I am the black sheep in my family. Nothing I do will impress them unless I do as they did and get a girlfriend, get married, and have kids in my 20's. Since my sister went down this road, she is blessed by them. Then again she is the golden child of my family no matter what.

It's not so bad because I don't see her that often. What bothers me is that I can't tell whether she is only uncomfortable talking about it or whether she actually has a problem with me because of it that she just isn't showing outwardly. I've seen her a couple times since then, and she wasn't acting any differently but it's hard to tell. She's one of those people who avoid conflict so much that they can appear perfectly normal even if they have a problem with you.

Yeah, my mom is a bit like that, but it's more obvious to tell when she's lying about being upset. If she had a serious problem, though she'd let me know, so I suppose it doesn't bother her too much.

Fortunately, I'm fairly confident my parents have no problems with it, which is notable considering that they were both raised in very homophobic environments. It also helps that my sister is also gay so they have nothing to compare me with.

Well that's great that they're so open minded about it.

Yeah, they hosted my sister's (now ex) girlfriend a couple times. My dad still gets somewhat grossed out by the idea of two men having sex; he turned off an episode of Game of Thrones when the gay sex scene came up. But I'm fairly certain he doesn't have an actual problem with it. Both of my parents are very into religion but not in the orthodox way. They're just really into spirituality, and as far as they've said, they believe that homosexuality is part of God's plan for humanity.

I've never really heard of religious people thinking that way before. Then again, I'm not too religious, so I'm probably a little out of the loop lol.

The two Christians I know are both fine with the idea of homosexuality. Then again, it's the UK, so the Church of England is probably slightly different to Catholicism. Most of the really horrible quotes I've read from the bible are from the NAB translation.

Then again, in England, you can't get married; it's civil partnership. So I guess there's pros and cons on both sides.

I find it genuinely terrifying that, on a global level, LGBT people are vastly outnumbered by those who utterly despise them. Gives me an inferiority complex just thinking about it.

I hate Missionaries. They destroy cultures. And now they facilitate horrible things like this. Omg they are the scum of the Earth!
I got an email about that too. It's so horrible, I hope it doesn't pass, it's disgusting. Committing a crime is one thing, but getting killed for something like that...didn't Hitler try that once? Oh dear bog.

Holy shit, you quoting that 2008 post compelled me to take a glance at the front page, and seeing all of the old users I used to know slammed me into a wall of nostalgia. 2008 was my peak time on here. But anyway, don't worry, that's not an actual rule. It was just a debate that spawned out of me (OP is my alt) not thinking about how I was writing the opening post. My fourteen year old self at the time spent all of a few minutes on that post. Funfact: I didn't think the thread would make it passed page 5, which is why I made it on an alt because at the time I cared about whether I would feel silly if the club failed under the name of my main account. Okay, this post is rambling and rambling. It's almost 4am, and I've been doing calculus for five hours, so excuse the ramble.

Looks like England's set to have gay marriage legalised by 2015. But the Church Of England has explicitly opted out of the law, so it will be illegal for them to perform ceremonies, considered an impingement on religious freedoms.

Sounds like good news. I didn't know that so many British Conservatives are opposed to gay marriage, though. The majority of my family are Tories and they're all strongly in favour of it.

Why should churches be forced to perform ceremonies that they do not believe in?

It is fair enough that ceremonies be allowed to be performed everywhere else.

That's really why they put that law in place; so they aren't pressured into marrying gay people when they don't want to.

I don't really have a problem with that. I mean, it sucks that they still refuse to accept gay marriage / gayness in general (I think there are a lot of followers who are actively rejecting the entire legislation, and don't want gay marriage, period), but I guess they have that right.

One problem is that this makes it illegal for any Church of England churches marrying gay people, including those who aren't opposed to gay marriage. There are a some Church of England members who are fine with homosexuality, and didn't get a say in this law. The division wasn't factored in because the church doesn't vote for stuff like this; interaction with the government is mainly done by high-ranking members of the church, who typically have more conservative views on gay marriage.

Good to hear it.

But the Church Of England has explicitly opted out of the law, so it will be illegal for them to perform ceremonies, considered an impingement on religious freedoms.

Unless I'm not understanding this it right, it seems like there should be a better way of resolving that legislation. All religious groups have variations in what their follows believe. They all have factions. The fact that the leaders of the religion are opposed to gay marriage shouldn't get in the way of the desire of the more progressive faction to participate in the law. It's not a problem over here in Massachusetts. Individual churches decide whether or not they want to preform homosexual weddings, and it works fine. I suppose this may have been some sort of political compromise to get the law passed. It just seems like having all churches in the Church of England unable to opt in will only hold back progress.
