That may well be your opinion but not mine and, I am sure, all the Christians, Jews and Muslims in Greece. It may be that Greece follows the "anything goes" route but see what it has done to the UK and USA, two countries founded on Christian principles but now in moral decline.
the Christians, Jews and Muslims" How do you know that?
I too wondered how the Greek population would view this change in the human rights of about 5% of the population. I thought to myself that maybe Greece isn't yet ready for such a change. But I have faith - not taken from the bible - but faith that generally people will think it's about time that everyone's rights were respected and observed and not just those who take a literal view of what the Bible, Koran or Tanakh says.
Your words imply that two people of the same sex committing to a relationship legally, contributes to a supposed decline in morality. I think the opposite is true in that I would infinitely prefer a changing, progressive world to what came before, making way for a more enlightened and morally balanced society. Homosexual people living in fear they be put in prison, stoned, hanged or thrown to their deaths from a high roof (as reported recently) because they happened to be homosexual, in my view, is not only immoral
but barbaric and untenable in today's world.
So called Christians who take a selective view of what the bible says and try and force their views on everyone else are immoral
in my view. For example, do you (Johnincrete) believe that the bible is right in stating that " all wives should be submissive to their husbands in all things" or that "it is shameful for women to speak in church" ? Or, do you treat the bible's do's and don'ts as some kind of smorgasbord and only choose to believe in the things that suit your particular palate? johnincrete went on to say....
We do have Christians who do claim to be non-practicing homosexuals but we also have those who are blatent in their abhorent lifestyle
I don't think I live an abhorrent lifestyle and it is insulting to label me as such. I consider myself to be a good person who respects others and want only to do good things while I am here on this earth but I can not understand anyone who applies such blind faith in the literal word of the scriptures. If I did, I think that would be immoral
