I Don't Get It

I just don't get this. Those in my denomination who oppose same sex couples from getting married claim that "radicals" and "revisionists" and otherwise nasty, god-hating, depraved bozos like me (who think the church ought to embrace gay couples who want to be married) are busting up the body of Christ by our advocacy. Whatever.

They come up with all kinds of theological jargon, texts from the Bible, and goofball theories of doom if clergy officiate at a wedding they don't think is proper. Why are some people so intent on depriving others of happiness?

It appears that some people base their religion on how much misery they can cause for others. The god they believe in and grovel toward must be a real sourpuss. If someone wants to get gay-married it is really nobody else's business. They aren't hurting anyone. It makes them happy. You would think the church would want to bring a little joy into people's lives.
