Proving the truth of the bible also entails proving it is superior to every other holy book since it claims an exclusive handle on the truth. This must be extremely difficult for Christians since most have never read any other holy book. They must take somebody else’s word for it all other books are inferior.

I find it astounding that Christians are so willing to publicly expose themselves for the hateful, petty bigots they are. For example:
- They claim allowing gays to marry would tantamount to allowing dogs to marry. It would sully the institution. They are asserting gays are not human, and as such do not deserve human rights. This is the old Nazi argument.
- They claim it is wrong to protect gay children, or children who are suspected may grow up to be gay, from being bullied. They assert children should be taught in school to bully gay children. They claim that all attempts to block such bullying show disrespect for Christian religious rights and should not be tolerated.
- Christian parents claim they should have the right to block a same-sex partner from visiting their terminally ill child in hospital. Christian parents should also have the right to exclude the same-sex partner from the funeral. If gays were permitted to marry, that would interfere with parental Christian duties to make gays miserable.
- Some go so far as to claim that tolerating the presence of a gay person is a guaranteed ticket to eternal torment. They just made that up.
There is no practical reason to block gay marriage. It is simply an expression of hate and spite, a way to put gays in a one-down position, much the way Christians used to put down blacks.~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 65)
