one nation under God that is America. Many folks put God first a and for those that do not that is their choice. However there are consequences to choices we make.
We Christians do tolerate all other choices however we are standing against being forced to approve, promote and otherwise advocate the choices they choose.----We are hated for our stand but that is okay. Stand with God's word we will till Jesus comes.
Why would you be opposed to gay and lesbian couples entering into legal, committed relationships?

What does any parade have to do with the millions of gay people who did not attend it?

Do we also prevent straight people form legally marrying because of "girls gone wild" videos, spring break footage, and Mardi gras celebrations?

You can say what you wish, as always.

But when you support the creation of laws that are designed only to discriminate against people you don't like, where there is no rational state interest interest in that discrimination, expect a fight.

And history has shown it is a fight you will lose.

Nothing to smirk about, there.

I don't think your really thought about that assertion...
Most importantly, it makes the word marriage meaningless.
....
How can a word be rendered meaningless?

Isn't the purpose of all words to label something?

Now, if you are trying to say that something will render your own marriage meaningless, or your own concept of marriage meaningless, that sounds more like a personal problem.

You can't blame others for that sort of thing.

We've asked you before where your fruit and nut theory is codified into current marriage law.

You have not yet supplied any valid references.

It was professionally exonerated by peers of every single charge.
Lesbian couples rank last, behind single parents. Simply the fact jack.
Smile.
There is no valid peer-reviewed study that shows any such thing, as you well know.

You need to explain, in detail, how allowing those lesbian couples to legally marry would make it worse for their children. How does having legally married parents make any child's life worse?

When talking about marriage and children here, we aren't talking about who is allowed to raise a child - that's already encoded in law and isn't going to change.

We are only discussing whether or not having legally married parents is beneficial or harmful to a child.

Make your case.

Valid stats only, please.

You are correct.
Those parades ARE quite indefensible.

issue. Sorry, I don't mean to make you late for the next parade.

Address the issue? Okay:

Illinois approved same-sex civil unions in 2010. Last week, the Illinois Senate approved gay marriage. In the coming weeks, the Illinois House will approve gay marriage, then the Governor will sign the law makng Illinois the 10th state to allow gay marriage.

And there is nothing you can do to stop it.

Feel better?
