I am looking for a Christian who currently believes gay marriage and polygamy should be illegal. I am also a Christian (and no, not a liberal one), and I plan to make the case that it is in the interest of Christians to abandon this position (while still opposing homosexuality morally).

Christians should not legalize gay/plural marriage. even though people cannot help who they love they shouldn't allow that now. that changes beliefs of a RELIGION!!!!! what they BELIEVE in! you cannot just force someone to believe in something like that! I have nothing against gay/plural marriages but I don't think that they should legalize it. it has been the way people believe for 2000 years so why would they change it now.

Ok, a few clarifications:

You said, "that changes beliefs in a religion". Please be more careful in your arguments. I stated in my original description, "while still opposing homosexuality morally", meaning I am not advocating that Christians change their beliefs on homosexuality. The Bible is consistent from the Old Testament to Paul's statements in the New Testament that homosexuality is a sin. Again, I am not asserting that Christians should change this belief. However, the Bible does not address making this sin (or consequences of this sin, e.g. Marriage) illegal. What I am suggesting is that Christians stop using civil government to enforce their religious beliefs.

You said, "I have nothing against gay/plural marriages but I don't think that they should legalize it". That's ironic. I actually have a lot against gay/plural marriage (like I said, I'm a Christian), but I think we should legalize it.
