Well to me it starts right in the first part if the bible.
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said:“This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.(Genesis 2:21-24 NKJV)
So... Each religion has their own belief on how the world was started. Doesn't make the Bible correct. And since we are not a theocracy it REALLY does not matter what any persons holy book says.

Now let me ask you this.. you "believing" in the Bible...do women at your church cover their heads while in church or while praying?

Your desire to make it a privilege is not supported by the law. There is no requirement for procreation or even sexual activity or ability, therefore the gender restriction provides no legitimate governmental interest.
I simply point out that many people and the number are discriminated against.

However, at its most basic essence and anything there after, marriage is distinct from SS couples.

Yep. Distinct indeed. Marriage is the joining of two people in a legally binding contract whereby they become each other's legal next of kin. A same-sex couple is simply two people of the same gender. Make sense, KiMare. It's not that hard. "At their most basic essence", apples are distinct from brake drums, cats from turnips.

LOL,

Yeah, that's why we get married, to become 'next of kin'.

This is where you go from 'marriage is a contract'???

Damn, homosexuals know so much about marriage!

Three gay men died, and were going to be cremated. Their lovers happened to be at the funeral home at the same time, and were discussing what they planned to do with the ashes.

The first man said, "My Ryan loved to fly, so I'm going up in a plane and scatter his ashes in the sky."

The second man said, "My Ross was a good fisherman, so I'm going to scatter his ashes in our favorite lake."

The third man said, "My Jack was such a good lover, I think I'm going to dump his ashes in a pot of chili, so he can tear my ass up just one more time."

All individuals have the right to marry under the same restrictions, and restrictions on being currently married, age, informed consent, and incest, have been shown to be legitimate restrictions. Gender is not a legitimate restriction. Your personal "essence" is not the essence of the law. Ability to have sex is not a requirement. That is your personal prejudice.

I'm gone for a few weeks and come back to see KiMare is still regurgitating the same nonsensical statements. Shocking. Not.
Does anyone here (other than KiMare) have any idea what exactly a "cross cultural constraint" is and how it applies to evolutionary mating behavior? Does anyone (other than KiMare) know what "evolutionary mating behavior" is?
Does anyone here (other than KiMare) know what a "defective failure" of mating behavior is? Can a failure be defective?
Does anyone here (other than KiMare) understand why the marriage of two people of the same gender constitutes an "oxymoron"?
He has said many times - ad nauseum - that to claim rights one must establish equality (as if being a human being isn't enough). In our society, only those who are guilty of crimes can be denied rights. Why have any people ever had to fight for their rights in this country? Did African-Americans have to "establish" their equality to finally be granted the same rights caucasians had been enjoying? How about women? How about people with physical limitations? Who decided that handicapped people should have equal access to anything? When did they "establish" their equality?
Just more elaborate rationalizations to excuse denial of equal rights to an unpopular group. They rely on procreation, as if it was required for marriage, ignoring even the ability to have sex is not a requirement for marriage to remain a fundamental right.

Interestingly, because marriage is a fundamental right, the state cannot take it away even when one party beats the other to a pulp and lands in jail. Even child abusers and rapists are not divorced by the state, even though the state may lock them up for life for the abuse of their spouse and children. And if divorced by the spouse, they still have the right to get married again.

And yet, ironically, you have claimed in your past posts that SS couples will NEVER be next of kin like heterosexual couples.

You flip-flopped, KiMerde, and you hoped nobody would notice.

But we did, Hunty, we did notice your flip-flop.

I made no reference to age. I did specifically note that the number under your dumbing down of marriage is discriminatory.

You also know that the issue of children involved in incest has been removed by the homosexual redefinition of marriage. Moreover, procreation is not a requirement of marriage, right? Or did you want to make an exception for one class of people???

I made the point that couples get married to HAVE next of kin. I've never heard of someone getting married to be LEGAL next of kin.

I didn't flip-flop, you gay twirled.
