At the most basic legal essence, marriage is a fundamental right of the individual. The constitution requires equal treatment for all persons.

The only eligibility requirement for fundamental rights is being human.

Reasonable restrictions may be made only when a compelling and legitimate governmental interest can withstand judicial scrutiny.

Most can agree with the courts that reasonable restrictions include age, ability to demonstrate informed consent, and not being closely related, or currently married.

Procreation ability is not a requirement, and people who cannot procreate get married every day, including those with birth defects.

Yet even that irrational excuse for discrimination ignores the fact that gay people can and do reproduce, and are raising children either biologically related or adopted.

Denial of equal treatment under the law provides no benefit to opposite sex couple families.

It only harms same sex couple families needlessly.

Has any one out there ever read anything about the yin and yang philosophy and the way of tao ? Somehow in the spin of life male and female elements are installed into each of us,I personaly am not homosexual or phobic but I sence the female aspects of my male being perhaps these homo gays have too much of the female element over weighing the balance of tao and vice versa for lesbian
The balance of nature you're describing is evident in this graphic depiction:

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

Homosexual sex is a redundant half of natural complimentary sex, the design of nature.

Moreover, homosexual procreation desolation is a clear indication of defect.

At the most intimate level, clearly distinct from marriage.

I think priests should be allowed to marry.
That's women, men, girls, boys, rabbits, turtles,
hippos, cats, dogs....etc....
Kind of turns me on thinking about it.

In your mind, but a lot of people like it for some reason. And the majority of them are straight.

The nice thing is that NO ONE is required to engage in any type of sex that they don't personally like.

And it's also nice that the government does not legislate the types of sex one must have in order to obtain a marriage license.
