How is marriage in the absence of family good for the community? Why?
And why privilege such a relationship between two people? Why not two best friends? An employer and his favorite employee? A farmer and his dog?
The social good of marriage, as it has been traditionally understood, has always been rooted, among other things, in its role in the continuance of the human race–i.e., procreation and children. If we excise procreation from the stated civic purposes of marriage–as we are increasingly doing–then what’s the point? It’s just a random, arbitrary relationship that we’ve defined that we somehow think is good for the community. But why?
And what interest does the community have in protecting and subsidizing a sterile relationship between two people “in love”(ostensibly…or not)?
The only one who want a "relationship" with a dog IS YOUR WIFE........ That wh*re you married will f*ck a donkey too if she is given a chance......SMIRK.........

Procreation and religious terrorism are not requirements or qualifications for the purchase of a marriage license from a county courthouses or city hall

Indeed; religious terrorists castigate couples that birth a child before marriage

You tell that to all the presidents in the past who prayed before making major decisions or who called their pastor for advice & prayer before deciding to go to war? How many people do you think pray in any government office everyday before making decisions that effect all of us every day?

1. The legal weight of 'consummation' is an indication that there is an expectation of procreation inherent in marriage.

2. I made no reference to religion. Your ignorant bigotry did however.

Hopefully quicker than the communist left. By the way I am straight too, just not a leach off the socialist entitlement menu.

Didn't say it was. I simply said a marriage can be nullified if it was not consummated. That indicates an expectation of procreation.

In the example we follow; it takes three times to consummate gay marriage:
.
++++++++++
1 Samuel 18 :1> And it came to passe when hee made an ende of speaking vnto Saul, that the soule of Ionathan was knit with the soule of Dauid, and Ionathan loued him as his owne soule.
.
1 Samuel 18:3> Then Ionathan and Dauid made a couenant, because he loued him as his owne soule.
.
1 Samuel 18:4> And Ionathan stript himselfe of the robe that was vpon him, and gaue it to Dauid, and his garments, euen to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.
.
1 Samuel 20:41> And assoone as the ladde was gone, Dauid arose out of a place toward the South, and fell on his face to the ground, and bowed himselfe three times: and they kissed one another, and wept one with another, vntill Dauid exceeded.
.
1 Samuel 20:42> And Ionathan said to Dauid, Goe in peace, forasmuch as wee haue sworne both of vs in the Name of the Lord, saying; The Lord be betweene me and thee, and betweene my seede and thy seede for euer. And hee arose, and departed: and Ionathan went into the citie.
.
2 Samuel 1:25> How are the mightie fallen in the midst of the battell! O Ionathan, thou wast slaine in thine high places.
.
2 Samuel 1:26> I am distressed for thee, my brother Ionathan, very pleasant hast thou beene vnto mee: thy loue to mee was wonderfull, passing the loue of women.

So in your 'theologu, David is judged for adultery with a married woman, but commended for adultery with a married man.

Really.

No dear; Jesus personally exempts from adultery: men who have no natural attraction to women
.
Here's Jesus:
.
++++++++++
Matthew 19:9> "And I say vnto you, Whosoeuer shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away, doth commit adultery."
.
Matthew 19:10> ¶ His disciples say vnto him, "If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marrie."
.
Matthew 19:11> But hee said vnto them, "All men cannot receiue this saying, saue they to whom it is giuen."
.
Matthew 19:12> "For there are some Eunuches, which were so borne from their mothers wombe: and there are some Eunuches, which were made Eunuches of men: and there be Eunuches, which haue made themselues Eunuches for the kingdome of heauens sake. He that is able to receiue it, let him receiue it."
