Why do you think gay marriage will cause "great calamities?" Are you saying gays are up there in evil with murderers, thieves, drug dealers, and terrorists, to name a few groups of very evil people? And are you really letting off the hook the greedy Wall Streeters, politicians, big-business polluters, and [gasp] leaders who rule mercifullessly to force religious convictions into law? They might have something to do with "great calamities" happening present day. Looking at everything in perspective, is gay marriage really what your God has said is the line in the sand before said "great calamities" are wreaked on us? If you are looking to convince people who are non-mormons, you'll have to go beyond citing mormon scripture to convince us to do things that hurt our neighbors just to fall in line with your beliefs. If it really is a threat to humanity, we'll listen.

Free agency, people. You can't force people to live by your standards just because you are the big fish in the world's smallest pond. Also, who are you to judge perfect strangers?

Amen! Only God (the Great "I AM")knows what is best for man and women, whom He created. Just read His instructions in the Holy Bible where He describes the details of His creation in Genesis 1:27 & Genesis 2:22. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
