TonyC, hope this didn't post twice but hope you still took the time to read it.

From my own observation, more men are averse to homosexuality than women. Even so, most people, both sexes, have become accustomed to this lifestyle in the mainstream whether we all condone it or not. To use a broad brush and paint everyone who is against gay marraige as being against gays is an unfair and inaccurate statement.

Redefining something as stablizing and consistent as marriage in any society sanctioning a man marrying a man and a woman marrying a woman stretches the definition to the point of negating its original intent - the psychological and stablizing factor of children having both a mother and a father.

That certainly doesn't mean all mothers and fathers are good parents any more than gays are not good parents. But adoptive children in a heterosexual relationship is uniquely different in itself. Adoptive children in a homosexual relationship is a rather recent development and it has yet to be determined the long-term social and psychological adjustments.

Children can be as cruel to adoptive children of gay couples as gay children themselves. No matter how many walls have been broken down, it is still considered an alternative and different lifestyle and the number of gay parents are in a small minority.

It would be hard to imagine a child growing up without having any stigma attached to having homosexual parents in contrast to most, if not all, their friends having heterosexual ones.

We have become a society where children are more of an afterthought than the primary consideration. We already see that with the widespread apathy concerning abortion.

We must be very careful or risk unraveling the very fabric of remaining a civilized and structured society. Since we've already become apathetic in preserving human life, once the definition of marriage has no meaning other than a self-serving one as well, the structure and foundation of this last remaining stronghold could easily become a free-for-all mentality and further blur the lines of a civilized society for children. Whitney was right. The children are our future. What we teach them is how they will lead the way.

Any society without boundaries or structure becomes more barbaric than civilized. Rome is the perfect example.

This is where I believe most of us who are against gay marriage stand. I feel fairly safe in speaking for most of them as well.

1. Who cares whether or not they found the gene yet?(answer: stupid people.)
2. It's not a "problem" to be solved. It's a natural variation of birth.(It's only a problem for stupid people.)
3. If abortion is legal, then parents can do whatever they want for any reason or no reason, as far as I know. Is that moral? That's something they'll have to wrestle with.
When the homosexual gene is identified (if it indeed exists), then homosexuality will disappear within a few generations.

That is, if homosexuality is exclusively genetic and not a lifestyle choice.

You folks on the left need to face the fact that many of your fellow travelers from the black and Hispanic communities are far less accepting of your homosexuality than is the general public.
In fact, Proposition 8 passed in California because of strong support from those communities.
You need to face the fact that it didn't pass because of the black community, but in spite of the 2 communities. San Francisco and Atlanta all well known gay communities. So you pointing out that it passed in a gay community makes no sense. Of course it did. What else did you expect?

I gave up asking why a long time ago. I trust God has His reasons.
Do you actually think that "God" chooses some people to be homosexual?

<quoted text>I often wonder if Laura was partying when she killed her fellow student -
On a November night in 1963, Mrs. Bush and a girlfriend were hurrying to a drive-in theater when Mrs. Bush, at the wheel of her father’s Chevy Impala, ran a stop sign on a small road and smashed into a car being driven by Mike Douglas, a star athlete and popular student at her school.
“In those awful seconds, the car door must have been flung open by the impact and my body rose in the air until gravity took over and I was pulled, hard and fast, back to earth,” she says.“The whole time,” she adds later,“I was praying that the person in the other car was alive. In my mind, I was calling ‘Please, God. Please, God. Please, God,’ over and over and over again.”
Mrs. Bush concedes that she and her friend were chatting when she ran the stop sign. But she also suggests a host of factors beyond her control played a role — the pitch-black road, an unusually dangerous intersection, the small size of the stop sign, and the car the victim was driving.

Typical of the entitled elite blame everything but themselves.
If you want to go down the road of presidential wives, then we can dredge up Michelle Obama's racist senior thesis at Princeton.

I read the article just fine. The article went through all the research.
It is only common sense that the risks to one's family outweigh any benefit for most people.
If I have a chainsaw,it has a purpose - to cut down trees or cut firewood. It has benefits.
The point is that you want to believe that owning that gun is for your family's protection went it is more likely to be the tool of death or injury to you & your family.
A man, a population, a country that is disarmed is no longer free.

One more thought. Teaching children tolerance and civility is absolutely the right thing to do but without boundaries or structure, we are doing them a disservice and, thus, ourselves.

The recent mass murders were done by young adults under the age of 20. We are creating a lawless society when children know no boundaries and lack any moral guidelines.

Later.

Most men find lesbian sex to be extremely hot and male homosexual sex to be disgusting.

Sorry, but that's the truth.

Can you understand why she would change her name now?
Would you report someone HERE to the moderators if they were giving out YOUR personal information?

This has absolutely nothing to do ideology. I don't have any problem with free speech. I don't have any problem with people of any political bent expressing their opinions. I DO have a problem with people violating the most basic terms of decency.
Oh, and I would report someone if I saw them breaking into YOUR house. Or abusing a member of YOUR family. I guess you and I are different in that respect. And I'm very sorry for that. Not for me but for you.

Proposition 8 was a California ballot proposition and a state constitutional amendment passed in the November 2008 state elections. The measure added a new provision, Section 7.5 of the Declaration of Rights, to the California Constitution, which provides that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Proposition won majority support in the black and Hispanic communities, allowing its passage. Of course, the homosexual community was opposed.

Definitely, but doesn't make 1 anymore wrong than the other. One can point out that women outnumber men 8/1, so either men were meant to have more than 1 women, or women are meant not only for meant women too! You can rest assure that there's logic behind the disparity!

woman is singular, women is plural, your post borders on jibberish

In China, because of restricted childbirth, there are more men than women, therefore, using your logic, will those men "choose" to be gay out of necessity?
