This is the sixth entry in the Christian round of the 2013 Ideological Turing Test.  This year, atheists and Christians responded to questions about sex, death, and literature.    Polyamory Marriage, in its essence, is meant to be an image of God’s love for humanity. It is a foretaste of heaven, a way to help us better understand God’s immense love for us, His self-gift to us, and the life-giving nature of that love. The love between God and humanity is total and personal – God does no … [Read more...]

This is the fifth entry in the Christian round of the 2013 Ideological Turing Test.  This year, atheists and Christians responded to questions about sex, death, and literature.    Polyamory "Is there any reason that marriage (civil and or sacramental) should be limited to the union of two persons?"Yes for both Civil & Sacramental Marriage (opposing both), though for different reasons.

This is the second entry in the Christian round of the 2013 Ideological Turing Test.  This year, atheists and Christians responded to questions about sex, death, and literature.    Polyamory Church marriage (a term I prefer because marriage is not generally held to be a Sacrament in the Anglican Communion) is a marriage between a man and a woman. The identity of the spouses is still disputed within our society, and I am personally torn over whether faithful same-sex couples should be a … [Read more...]

[Turing 2013] Christian Entry #1

This is the first entry in the Christian round of the 2013 Ideological Turing Test.  This year, atheists and Christians responded to questions about sex, death, and literature.    Polyamory Legalizing multiple marriage would deeply destabilize society. Anti-polygamy laws are a tool to fight fundamentalist Mormons and other cults which violate the dignity of the human person. In any patriarchal society, rich men would build harems, while poor men would be left without a spouse, which le … [Read more...]
