I know you're pretty slow, but did you ever figure out the difference between natural and unnatural?

As in things like styrofoam, polyethylene, religion and marriage contracts are man made inventions and hence not "natural"?

Things like homosexual behavior, which has been observed in over 400 species of animals are found throughout nature and hence are "natural"?

Homosexuality is a trait more prevalent in human populations than red hair. Is red hair unnatural?

Exactly. You people will not stop until it is in the American constitution that Gay is OK. And then what? You will find some other thing to get your panties in a bunch and will start your movement all over again until it has consumed the very fiber of this nation. What will it be next? A movement that requires every heterosexual to mimic giving Jesus a blowjob at the alter to satisfy your belief God says Peter puffin stuff is the way he/she meant it to be?
No, Henny Penny, I just want the rights that I'm entitled to. Marriage equality is all I'm after. What you do to Jesus is between you and the Lord.

It's already in the constitution, Buford. All men are created equal.

I don't mean to correct you my friend but that would be over 1,500 species of animals that occurs in nature! The more the merrier I always say! And that would be the very definition of natural wouldn't it,if it occurs in nature? LoL

Homosexuality in the animal kingdom! 1,500 examples!

Uh...perhaps because I am heterosexual and my wife and I can "settle" for calling it marriage. But you can go ahead and call it whatever YOU want. But if you want my best reason, it's because my wife and I can and have consummated our love (marriage) by procreation. I in fact have three children born by way of natural insemination and gestation. It is a little something heterosexuals can do to magnify and enhance their marriage (love) that homosexuals cannot do with their "partner". If you want a reason why yours isn't the same- that is why. End of discussion.
Procreation has never been a pre-requisite for, or a requirement of marriage.

I also have three children, all biologically mine, all 3 straight adults.

My "partner" IS my husband.

BB's (Bible bigots) refuse to answer that question. Once they admit that gay marriage has no bearing on their life, their entire argument deflates faster than Kimare's micro-schwantz.

Southern "Lady" knows, in fact, that my gay marriage has NO effect on her life at all. When her generation is dead (won't be soon enough for me) this thread will no longer exist.

Of course you can call sexual defects 'natural' because they occur in all species. However, most people don't bother to use 'natural', because they aren't normal, they are rare defects.

Thank goodness!

Red hair is not a defect. In fact, it is a expression of mating behavior. Homosexuality is a sterile, barren mating behavior, hence a 'defect'.

That's where you're wrong. My generation is raising the next generation to have the same morals & to follow the Bible's teachings. It's a never ending cycle. Just the way God intended it to be.

Every generation is also more accepting of gays and lesbians and same sex marriage. Every poll and other indicator shows this. As homophobes such as yourself die off, equality makes ever greater strides...

But you and your husband CANNOT reproduce together sir. THAT is the difference I was suggesting that separates what is consummation of marriage that gays will NEVER have the ability to do. That can consummate their love in many ways I am sure but procreation isn't one of them. I bet your straight adult children are just thrilled to know their dad is pumping their "other" dad. He'll, they might make a tv sitcom about your dysfunctional family. Maybe you can pitch it to LOGO.

Oh. So what you are sayin is the constitution says gay is ok right from the get-go. And of course, women were not made equal in this document you now sight. They had to fight for that right and eventually they got their protection and admission of equality, yet they still fight the battle today, the battle of the sexes. And that's the key to me. There are but two sexes- male and female. In the human genome, it is highly irregular and unusual for a human to be born both ways, though it happens from time to time. Should there be a provision in the constitution for those few individuals? No. Waste of time and effort.

grasping at straws and trying to frame the argument in your own ridiculous terms eh?

You lost a long way back, you're just not quite bright enough to realize it.

Protecting the minority is a waste of time and effort? The framers of the Constitution did not see it that way. I'll go with their opinion over yours.
