"Last"? What means "last"? What's there to "last"? Nothing.

A relationship......or do you think that doesn't exist unless someone pronounces some magic words over a couple? Smiley

The 99 cent store near my house is amazing!  You can find the greatest stuff there, not to mention really good food, and everything only costs 99 cents!  And no one speaks English, not even the clerks.  You have to speak either Armenian or Spanish to buy anything.  I've always jokingly told people that if I were to ever marry, I'd register there.  I didn't think they actually had a registry, though.  Wow.  Beats Macy's.

I'm not sure if it's a traditional bridal registry - since you can't actually be sure from one day to the next what's in their inventory!  I suspect it's half-joke, half-gift card.  laugh

This is very true. What alot of people fail to understand is that there are a few gay men who genuinely care for one another and have established a life together. A few of my friends are in this state. These men really do love eachother, and although I think love is misplaced (because I believe homosexual relationships outside of God's will), I do not deny the genuiness of their bond with one another.

Yes, that is what makes it such a difficult situation.  I have a cousin who is gay and in a long-term relationship with his partner.  They're both wonderful people and I believe their love for each other is genuine (though misplaced as you said).

Perhaps the best answer is to remember that we're all sinners and just pray for them.

The tangent on judgment, faith, mathematics, and various other topics, has been split and moved to Free-for-All Religious Topics:
