SENATOR EDDIE CALVO DANCES CIRCLES AROUND THE SAME SEX MARRIAGE ON THIS MORNING'S TALK SHOW

Sometimes, questions are asked that are either yes, or no. There's no circling around a question when you ask a woman who's obviously pregnant if she's going to have a baby.

Today, Ray Gibson asked Senator Eddie Calvo about the issue of same sex marriage as introduced by Senator B.J. Cruz. He said he respected the people who wanted to be married to a person of the same sex...the question wasn't if he respected those who want to marry a person with the same gender. He said he hasn't read the bill and on and on then said that he was a man who obviously was married to a woman and had children(not verbatim). This is an omen, I think, he'll be in the session hall and will probably be like a banana tree. If the wind blows to the right, he might swing that way or vice versa.

The following is cut and pasted from a cyber source:"It is clear, however, that the Bible condemns homosexuality as an immoral and unnatural sin. Leviticus 18:22 identifies homosexual sex as an abomination, a detestable sin. Romans 1:26-27 declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent. First Corinthians 6:9 states that homosexuals are unrighteous and will not inherit the kingdom of God. Since both homosexual desires and actions are condemned in the Bible, it is clear that homosexuals “marrying” is not God’s will, and would be, in fact, sinful.

Whenever the Bible mentions marriage, it is between a male and a female. The first mention of marriage, Genesis 2:24, describes it as a man leaving his parents and being united to his wife. In passages that contain instructions regarding marriage, such as 1 Corinthians 7:2-16 and Ephesians 5:23-33, the Bible clearly identifies marriage as being between a man and a woman. Biblically speaking, marriage is the lifetime union of a man and a woman, primarily for the purpose of building a family and providing a stable environment for that family.

The Bible alone, however, does not have to be used to demonstrate this understanding of marriage. The biblical viewpoint of marriage has been the universal understanding of marriage in every human civilization in world history. History argues against gay marriage. Modern secular psychology recognizes that men and women are psychologically and emotionally designed to complement one another. In regard to the family, psychologists contend that a union between a man and woman in which both spouses serve as good gender role models is the best environment in which to raise well-adjusted children. Psychology argues against gay marriage. In nature/physicality, clearly, men and women were designed to “fit” together sexually. With the “natural” purpose of sexual intercourse being procreation, clearly only a sexual relationship between a man and a woman can fulfill this purpose. Nature argues against gay marriage."

Times have changed as have values. Few use the bible to guide them through life's journeys. But I say, the answer should be a strong 'yes' or, 'no'. I felt his willy nilly answer came from a person who doesn't want to lose votes. He wants votes from the gays as well as the straights. He wants to have his cake and eat it as well. While George Bush was president, he was against abortion, early or late term. He was unpopular with his stand on stem cell because the stem cells came from an aborted fetus and, he was against same gender marriages because it was unnatural. His no gray area answers didn't endear him to many....but, he was true to himself, to what he believed in.

It doesn't make a fat rat's butt how many states have allowed same gender marriages, we don't have to do what others do just to appease a few. I wonder if this bishop has the spine Bishop Felixberto Flores had when he threatened excommunications to those that voted to legalize abortion. Unfortunately, loopholes have allowed for many lives to be snuffed out while in utero for those who performed the murders, I say, 'karmic pay back's a bitch!'

After same sex marriages do we move on to beastiality?

WAS GAMBLING ISSUE, NOW SAME SEX MARRIAGE, WHAT NEXT?

Youth Congress president, Derek Hill introduces bill for same sex marriage and senator B, J. Cruz picks up and introduces same bill for current Guam Legislature.......

So.......the community was asked to vote for a gambling bill.......no, no, hellno! The company tried twice to get their initiave passed.....the Bishop and friends made their speeches against the issue, and it didn't pass. Even the old Grayhound Races stopped and the dogs set free.

Yesterday, senator B.J. Cruz picked up on the Youth Congress' bill to introduce same sex marriage law. The archbishop quickly joined in and reminded his flock that marriage is between a man and a woman....I recall reading this in the bible, and growing up knowing this, there was nothing that would ever lead me to think otherwise. There was marriage(between a man and a woman)....and....divorce. I can't imagine what gender God would have picked if he created the first two human beings to complete each other....didn't He say go forth and multiply? Again, I can't imagine how two of the same gender can go and multiply. But I'm thinking this is really old fashioned thinking, almost like an old wives' tale.
I also never imagined that what is reported in national news would ever reach the shores of Guam.....it has.

On the Patti Arroyo show this morning, most of the calls were 'for' the marriage of the same gender....no one from the anti-abortion league called to protect the sanctity of marriage, between a man and woman. I suppose that these people are thinking that they'll oppose the bill when the legislature discusses the issue. It may cause a senator or two that votes in favor of same sex marriage. The bishop still has a strong hold on his side and he'll probably gather them to protest the issue when it's discussed at the hallowed halls of the legislature.

The bish doesn't like protests.......when protest threats were made in order for mass to continue at the St. Fidelis Friary before an evening mass at the Cathedral......he changed his edict to allow for mass but no services for death anniversaries, marriages or even funerals...the edict was slightly amended...making sure that all the money for such services continued to be made in 'parish' churches.

There are a group of people who think nothing of aborting a fetus just before its born(stem cells used, of course and that's a good reason for late term abortions/murder). The same group will stand for same sex marriage. Times and values have changed........'O mores, O tempores!
