Why not? Same reason why gay people aren’t allowed to marry? To me, it seems one is more serious than the other. I don’t see rallies for people against atheists getting married. What’s the big deal? It’s not marriage is sacred or anything. Some believe that atheism contradicts marriage but I don’t see how that’s possible, either. I was married and those close to me knew I was an atheist so, either they didn’t care or they didn’t want to have their asses handed back to them if they mentioned the sanctity of marriage. The bible may this and you can say that – which is cute, by the way:
Y’all can believe anything you want, but marriage is a spiritual union which man has, over time caused to become a legal contract.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed.
That was the first marriage ceremony.
But, the bible also says this:
-Scratches head- Now, I don’t see too many women submitting to their husbands; I mean only if they’re in to that kind of thing but the point is there’s a lot of shit in that damn book that most Christians do not follow. Why? Because they don’t know it’s there. Why? Because they don’t read the damned thing! Funny, that those who’s only rebuttal is citing Adam and Eve as the first wedding.That would mean that the first wedding was about 4,000 years after the Sumerians invented glue. Oh, here’s another one:
Hebrews 13:4-7Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
The excuse? “The government took away the sanctity of marriage!” To me, the moment that happened, marriage was no longer sacred or should have been for one group-set.
There are so many bible verses that aren’t followed and yet when someone steps outside of what they consider normal, THEN they want to thump their bibles. Why bother? When marriage, of any kind, causes physical harm to you or anyone else, then that’s when you should open your mouth and say something. Not a moment before.
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
Guess what? You’re going to Hell!
This looks like a bunch of he-said, she-said and someone just so happened to be there to write it down. Maybe.
