IF you are even attempting to marry a person of the same sex it is really difficult to call yourself a christian.
It's only by your definition that marriage is only between a man and a woman.

Why is really difficult to call yourself a christian if you choose to marry a person of the same sex? Is it because you choose to sin? Do you choose to sin? Do you consider yourself a christian if you do choose to sin? Why the difference?

Do you think those that have civil unions should have the exact same benefits as those who are allowed to be traditionally married?

Sure give them every benefit there is. I don't want it called marriage.

I consider myself a Christian for many reasons.

IF you are, Christian marriage is a SACRED institution before God.

Leviticus 18:22 (New King James Version)
22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

You cannot be a Christian and try and marry a person of the same sex. When dealing with marriage sins are amplified because of how sacred Marriage is. If you where a true Christian you would not be practicing homosexuality to begin with yes we all slip up but to live in an open affront to God and expect to be saved is crazy.

Believing in God is not enough we have to strive to be Christ like.

It's very clear that you know very little about Christianity. The way it works is that we are all born sinful and corrupt. No one is any better than the next person and no one is able to do anything good enough to earn GOD's love. However, despite the fact that we're not worthy, GOD gives His love freely to everyone, including homosexuals. HOWEVER, if we choose to follow Him, then we must first acknowledge our sin and repent of it. Repent means to stop doing bad deeds, turn around and actively work to do good deeds. How do we determine what GOD considers bad and what He considers good? The Bible. He laid it out in His Teachings (the Torah) and homosexuality is very clearly identified as sin, thus bad and against GOD's will for anyone's life.

Is a gay man going to go to Hell for for having sex with another man? No. He's going to go to Hell for the pride he displays in refusing to admit that his actions are sinful.

Well, even Satan and all of his demons believe in Jesus Christ and they are not saved. Obviously there is more to it than just belief. A willingness to submit would be another critical step.

Salvation is the belief in Christ and the follow of his teachings.. The devil believes in Jesus but that doesn't mean he is saved David.
