    There is nothing romantic about two men being together in this way. No matter who says what about it . No matter who accepts it .it is perversion in the eyes of God and any normal thinking person. It is not legal no matter what so called law was written to make it so. It is not supported by the constitution. The constitution still recognizes marriage between one man and one woman. The constitution makes no law concerning marriage. The supreme court doesnt make laws ,they only rule whether or not something is constitutional if a law is made. Regardless of what he or anyone else thinks, he is not married. God created marriage for one man and one woman and it comes from God. God said that homosexuality is an abomination.

    Ya’ll must not read the Bible, because GOD looks on this sin as “detestable in the eyes of GOD”.
    I do like watching the show and James character.

    Stephen says... a sense of eternity, God is eternal. Jim says, a sense of divinity, God is Divine. Jim says light, God is the Light. Jim says the close he can get is God, God created marriage, and His followers will one day be married to Him when He returns again. Then Stephen says it is love. God is Love. Agape Love.

    Love. It's so nice to find someone who goes deep regarding love. I feel that with my husband and we're together a long time. I'm agnostic so no god involved. It's like a connection. I imagine it like a neuron connecting to another neuron. And warm... ❤️❤️❤️ I love you my Eamon!!!

    Way to go Jim and Todd, congratulations! I can understand what Jim was getting at when he talked about difference when you actually marry. My partner and I married last December. We were both pretty relaxed about it all, joined on the day by friends and family. All going well right up to the point when the celebrant said repeat after me.. I lost it. The fact that after 29 years I was actually allowed to say those words. It was a brilliant day 😉

    For the highest paid star he seems a bit uncomfortable in the spotlight. Not putting him down, but he looked tense rather than relaxed. He can't really be Sheldon. That'd be painful.

    JIm , there is NOTHING DIVINE about your lifestyle.It's a perversion of God's intended use for a man and woman. You will NOT see Heaven nor God unless you repent and give your life to Jesus. Being gay will NOT send you to an Eternity without God. Not recieving Christ whom died for your sins, that is the ONLY reason you will not eneter heaven. John 3:16.

    Jim Parsons is such a polite and kind person, very real, down to earth. He gives me a good feeling, a sense of happiness and genuine warmth. I feel like anyone who is blessed enough to be in his life is certainly all the better for it. Congratulations to Jim and Todd! May you live and love long and may happiness reign supreme throughout your lives. 🤗
