This country is in serious trouble. It wasn't rampant homosexuality that caused God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, it was that it was universally accepted by everyone in those cities that caused God to destroy them. When a majority of people accept homosexuality and homosexual marriage as normal and natural, the judgments of God will begin to wreak destruction on this country.

I welcome Hawaii as our 16th state with marriage rights for its homo people , as for the likes of Chis B and Manly me your mythology has no place in a modern nation . You could move to Zimbabwe or Russia but here in the great U.S.A. we go on facts not mumbo jumbo and false stories ( like the bible ) .

You were correct to that point:
Ezekiel 16:49:
“‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy"

You wrote:.

Why would God do that to this country and not to all the other countries that already have SSM?

Why would God destroy a whole nation when less than 10% of its population is homosexual?

Why God would destroy his children who are homosexuals if He made them that way?

Homosexuality has always existed. Yet God didn't destroy the world because of it. Homosexuals were always ostracized as perverts, sexually insatiable individuals, unable to be loyal and faithful to a single person. Now, that LGBT are forming strong monogamous relationships, raising children, serving their community, their churches, their country,... now God will destroy the country?

What god is that? My God preaches love and rejoices in it.

@Baccus --

Great post. I wish I could give it multiple "likes".

One small quibble, though.

"Homosexuals were always ostracized as perverts, sexually insatiable individuals, unable to be loyal and faithful to a single person. "

Modern Christianity has usually tended towards this view -- but that's not the same thing as "always". Many cultures throughout history have accepted homosexuality -- and notably the Polynesian cultures were one of those accepting groups, since this is an article about gay marriage in Hawaii.

Representative Jordan complains that "We don’t need a lot of Mainlanders coming and telling us what we gotta do".

Well, those "mainlanders" should refer especially to the Christian missionaries who forced their religion on the island natives back in the 1800s.

Thank you for the observation. You are right.
