QUESTION about GAY MARRIAGE?????????????????
Can anyone here tell me if there has EVER been a time in our history..........the history of man..........when GAY marriage was accepted in their culture? Besides NOW of course. Because I know it is accepted here in the US and other countries at this time.

I don't mean homosexual acts or relationships............I mean MARRIAGE?


I have a bet going on and I say that there has NEVER been a time in mankind's history when MARRIAGE between gays was acceptable. My friend thinks that there was but cannot give dates! They just think that it is unimaginable to think that our culture at this time would be the only one to accept it as "normal".

Anyone have any idea??????

Re: QUESTION about GAY MARRIAGE?????????????????
well why don't you look into it?

if you have a bet it seems you should know something about it.

what you're gonna get here is conservative gold stars who say it never happened and liberal ACs who said it has always happened. very little objective research is done here.

You lose:

"Professor Boswell discovered that in addition to heterosexual marriage ceremonies in ancient church liturgical documents (and clearly separate from other types of non-marital blessings of adopted children or land) were ceremonies called, among other titles, the "Office of Same Sex Union" (10th and 11th century Greek) or the "Order for Uniting Two Men" (11th and 12th century). That certainly sounds like gay marriage."

In North America, among the Native Americans societies, same-sex unions have taken the form of Two-Spirit-type relationships, in which some male members of the tribe, from an early age, heed a calling to take on female gender with all its responsibilities. "In many tribes, individuals who entered into same-sex relationships were considered holy and treated with utmost respect and acceptance," according to anthropologist Brian Gilley.

A same-sex union was known in Ancient Greece and Rome,and in some regions of China, such as Fujian province, and at certain times in ancient European history. These gay unions continued until Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. A law in the Theodosian Code (C. Th. 9.7.3) was issued in 342 AD by the Christian emperors Constantius II and Constans, which prohibited same-sex marriage in ancient Rome and ordered that those who were so married were to be executed.


Prior to 342 AD gay same-sex unions/marriage were common.

Re: QUESTION about GAY MARRIAGE?????????????????
Evidence exists that same-sex marriages were tolerated in parts of Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt. Artifacts from Egypt, for example, show that same-sex relationships not only existed, but the discovery of a pharaonic tomb for such a couple shows their union was recognized by the kingdom. Meanwhile, accounts of the Israelites' departure for Canaan include their condemnation of Egyptian acceptance of same-sex practice. In actuality, same-sex marital practices and rituals are less known in Egypt compared to Mesopotamia, where documents exist for a variety of marital practices, including male lovers of kings and polyandry. None of the recorded laws of Mesopotamia, including the Code of Hammurabi, contain restrictions against same-sex unions despite the fact that marriages are otherwise well regulated (Eskridge).

Thanks so much for your input. So it appears it was acceptable PRIOR to Christianity OR in non-christian societies.

All gays and supporters of gay marriage are faggots. All faggots burn in hell, so I hope it's warm enough for you all. Have a nice day, and may The Lord God our Savior forgive you all.angel4

"...at the beginning, the Creator 'made them male and female' and said 'For this reason man will leave his father and mother, and be united with his wife; and the two will become one flesh.'"
