    Too bad for you, really.
    I hear a lot of advice and suggestions, but that
    is among the worst ever.

    It is pretty insane to say that god is all good, but
    everything he made is bad.

    I'm sorry, I was unclear.
    That was my opinion of most Christian doctrine.

    Paganism of today does as well. Pop by the heathenism or paganism sub-forums, we promise we won't bite!

    The how and why of europeans taking up christianity is not really unclear, however. We Danes were forced to by our king when he converted. It doesn't mean we liked it, just that that was how things were done at that point in time. Fortunately, the old ways have been ressurected since then.

    Obviously Mother Nature is a pseudo term for natural processes but I do like the personification .

    Why would pagans, a natural worship, believe in something so unnatural as same sex marriage?

    Considering getting back into the fold: coming home to Jesus in an Affirmed Church this time.
    Marriage is a man-made construct and unnatural anyway. The animals don't say "I do" before screwing. I don't know if pagans of antiquity practiced even opposite-sex marriage. But I do believe same-sex sexual contact is a part of nature as is opposite-sex sexual contact.

    The closest thing to "marriage" in nature is the wolves. A given pair mates together until death do they part. Whether Canis lupus ever engages in same-sex fooling around, I don't know, but male lions (of a coalition) do sometimes.

    Doves, on the other hand, which bird is a personification of the Christian Holy Ghost, habitually change partners at least once annually for mating and breeding new families each season for life.

    Marriage is a man made construct, yes. You're comparing human marriage to loveless animals. The point of marriage is to have a kid(s). To not have a kid you give less to your society.

    I do respect your viewpoint But it raise a question.
    For those couple who live together (Male/female) Who choose not to have kids, they do not give anything to the society? or did i misunderstand you?

    Of course they can give to a society but it limits their giving by not having a child. Children are the future of any nation, it is important to give to help strengthen your nation.

    So if someone live together but do not interact in sexual act because of the spiritual life they live, how do you see it then? Is life about getting children?

    Everyone should have a child but some can't and shouldn't. There are a lot of other thing than children. Life is about fowarding something bigger than you, to work and serve your nation and people. In a ideal nation everyone would be pagan.

    When you say serve your nation, what does that mean?
    Why do we put borders, we are all human beings,

    We are all human beings but with our own people. Whites should have theyre own nations. Just like blacks, asians and hispanics.

    The belief of a borderless world is a straight principle of cultural marxism.
