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?
