What is Serena's position on same sex-marriages?

She has never been very clear on that issue.
As was stated in another thread her unwillingness to kiss her opponent at the net leaves many question marks.

I think she's a 'top'.

But honestly, I'm not at all sure she IS married.

Yeah, lets find another thing to add on our list of Reasons to hate Serena:

She's intolerant!

What tennis player has come out with an official position on gay marriage?! Please let me know.

Why does it MATTER how Serena feels about gay marriage?! :rolleyes:

She is a Jehovah's Witness, so I'm sure that her religion teaches her that homosexuality is a sin. But thats beside the point: Who gives a shit on Serena's position on ay marriage! Jesus Christ!

By turning herself into a big-than life role-model Serena needs to make her moral view-points known.

Every single one that she has!!! Honestly! Every moral position she has, she must make them public in order to be a role model. yeah, we all really care how Michael Jordan feels about US Policy in Iraq!!!:rolleyes::rolleyes:

I know right! If she wants to be in Hollywood or in fashion, she must be tolerant of homosexuals!!! Serena is a nice girl, I'm sure shes not prejudiced against any group of people. Being black, you tend to be more respectful and understanding of disadvantaged peoples more often than not.;)

...but she's also very religious, and you know what they're like... :)

Being religious does not neccesarily mean you are intolerant.

From what I have gathered, Serena supports same sex marriage as does Venus.

Is it really that important to you to have Serena's approval for your marriage? Marry whoever you want. As long as your partner's an adult, that's between you, your partner and God.

Unless, of course, you're female and your point is YOU want to marry Serena. In which case, I must point out that some guy has been sitting inthe 'friends' box who the announcers are calling Serena's boyfriend.

Really, I don't know what Serena's position is on swimming in sea water versus city water. I just dunno. :shrug:
I dunno her positions about so many things, it's not even funny. :o
I don't even know her preferred sex position. :devil:

What the WatchTower Says on Same Sex Marriages and Homosexuality

"Then again, a young boy may get started in homosexuality by being seduced by homosexual men. There was a glaring example of this in Vancouver, Canada, where some homosexuals seduced thirty-five young boys between the ages of ten and fourteen and then made traffic out of them."
- "The Watchtower" 5/15/70 p314

"Shocking as it is, even some who have been prominent in Jehovah's organization have succumbed to immoral practices, including homosexuality, wife swapping, and child molesting."
- "The Watchtower" 1/1/86 p12

"History does not make clear how prevalent homosexuality was among the Romans. No doubt, though, they were influenced by their Greek predecessors, among whom it was widely practiced. It was customary for older men to corrupt young boys, taking them under their wing in a student-teacher relationship that often steered the youngsters into deviant sexual behavior. Undoubtedly, Satan and his demons were behind such vice and mistreatment of children."
- "The Watchtower" 7/15/97 pg.10

Long before pedophilia in the priesthood came under the scrutiny of the news media as intensely as it has in recent times, Jehovah's Witnesses recognized this activity within the Catholic Church and used it to scandalize the church in an attempt to prove that the Catholic Church is the "Whore of Babylon" mentioned in the book of Revelation, as the Watchtower has preached for decades. Unfortunately, Jehovah's Witnesses also utilized this as an opportunity to equate pedophilia with homosexuality, as the following three passages from "Awake" magazine reveal

The Watchtower I don't think has published anything on the marriages of same sex couples, but their strong tolerant views on Homosexuality, also must find Same Sex Marriages immoral, by going on the other inclinations of the Church.

Venus and Serena are J-Witnesse's, are they practicing ? Practice a Conservatism or orthodoxy??

Anyway, apart from their opinion which you can't find out by playing God, you have the Watch Towers Scource as your best insight.

Or you can form your own opinion based on what your opinion of the Williams sisters is.

No it is, pretty much. We are all pretty much speculating here what Serena Thinks of Same Sex Marriages, Until she may actually comment about it, All our opinions are void, making them valid de void as each others.

If anyone knows that there practicing Jehovah's Witnesses, then maybe the Verses and what the Watchtower tells us may provide some insight into what they may think of the Topic, until then happy playing God :)

The key word in that sentence is maybe. Until Venus or Serena come out and claim that they stand by those Watchtower verses wholeheartedly then by providing those quotes to suggest what they follow, you're speculating - or 'playing God' as you put it - about their opinions as much as anyone else :).

I never said my opinion would be any more accurate on what they contemplate anyway. I'm sure a lot of people would like to believe that they hold views in favour of same sex marriages based on what they think of them. I see nothing wrong in that.

Well I believe it's a more valid option (It actually contains some form of relationship, you know? Some insight into why, then as to saying "I think this..." It's not Maybe Kart, it's called a Basis. ;)

I never said my opinion would be any more accurate on what they contemplate anyway.
Of course you didn't, I did it for you.

Anyway some form of relationship which I might add, may provide valid truth, or a basis, (which Same Sex is a well known topic within Religion, and Both Sisters happen to be known of a JW Faith, which also have known views about the subject) rather than just a aimless opinion.

We may all be speculating Kart, but with a sensible basis, it does bring a new perspective into it.

They are not practicing Jehova Witnesses in the sense that they do not take everything the religion says to the extreme.

For example - as a Jehova's witness, you are not an American, you are a Jehova's Witness. Also, you are not to spend lavishly on things you don't need - someting we know Venus and Serena are unable to do ;)

Furthermore, from people that actually know the girls, they are extremely tolerant, like most people under the age of 25, in regards to homosexuality.

They are not by the book Jehovah's Witnesses or they wouldn't be wearing the clothes they wear. ;) :o

They also wouldn't be involved in political issues and they seem to be VERY involved.

There are several "rules" they break just by being athletes so I seriously doubt if they believe in all of what the Watchtower states. If that was the case, do you really think Serena would have played doubles with someone who has a "sickness" (very, very tongue in cheek) such as homosexuality? c'mon...
