Mating behavior IS NOT THE SAME THING AS MARRIAGE, you moron.
Didn't say it was.

I said marriage is a constraint on mating behavior.

Idiot.

Yep, you are senile alright. You cannot even tell when you write something SO STUPID it would make children laugh at you. Your Buybull is an anthology of Jewish folklore. NONE OF IT HAPPENED, bozo. The same book you think is so prescient also said the sun and the moon stopped in the sky for about a day. If that were true, none of us would be here.
Anyone can scoff at what they don't understand.

You are ignoring what you do understand, and your anger is a poor cover for fear.

Address my questions with an explanation, or admit you have no answer.

By the way. You don't speak for anybody but yourself.

Smile.

And I said marriage was first about money and property.

None of your feeble-minded attempts at semantics games changes reality. Gay couples are getting LEGALLY married every day, and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Ignoring reality does nothing to change it.

You are confusing the rare political use of marriage with the natural and far more common attraction of love.

SS couples will only ever be a mutually sterile pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

No law can ever change that reality.

You should probably get a divorce, given that your marriage is now a sterile plural marriage. If you can't breed babies, you're not pleasing in God's eyes.

Too bad you'll never be in a real marriage, like mine.

so justice will be enraged against sin when it tries to make itself beautiful, and will accuse it to its face since he who defends will come, hunting up sins on the earth.(2 Esdras 16:51 CEB)
Many verses can be interpreted to condemn a wide range of people. And yet that same bible and all other religious and non religious ethical belief systems, stress the Golden Rule above all others.

That you treat others as you would yourself under the law is also a requirement of our Constitution. Yet, you find interpretations that allow you to contradict it.

Matthew 7:12,: So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Galatians 5:14: The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

First Circuit Court of Appeals:

"Although the House Report is filled with encomia to heterosexual marriage, DOMA does not increase benefits to opposite-sex couples--whose marriages may in any event be childless, unstable or both--or explain how denying benefits to same-sex couples will reinforce heterosexual marriage. Certainly, the denial will not affect the gender choices of those seeking marriage. This is not merely a matter of poor fit of remedy to perceived problem, Lee Optical, 348 U.S. at 487-88; City of Cleburne, 473 U.S. at 446-50, but a lack of any demonstrated connection between DOMA's treatment of same-sex couples and its asserted goal of strengthening the bonds and benefits to society of heterosexual marriage."

At the most basic level, and at every point thereafter, marriage is distinct from ss couples.

From start to finish, and in the end, ss couples will only ever be a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

My marriage produced two sons.

Your relationship?

Hemorrhoids.

See the difference?

No hemorrhoids, though I can't imagine why you like to think so much about my backside. Whatever, fruit-loops.

What about the lifespan of homosexuals? Studies have shown that the average year of death for homosexuals is somewhere between 45 and 52 years! Compare this to 70+ years old for heterosexual deaths. And these deaths are not only from AIDS. Sadly, the murder rate (100 times more likely than heterosexuals) and the suicide rate (25 times more likely) are much higher among homosexuals. Why? Because homosexuals are not happy people. The term they use to describe themselves,“gay”, is a misnomer. Anybody that disagrees with them is immediately pounced upon with extreme anger. This is so evident if you ever go to any of their websites and read their comments after an article is published on their lifestyle. Anger leads to a lot of bad things, including suicide and murder
You promote the false information that fuels the anger you recognize. It is the prejudice you promote which results in the harm your exaggerations and misrepresentations recognize.

Gay people have the same life expectancy of others. The "study" you have seen is simply wrong. It is old, and was based on people who are HIV positive, ignoring HIV is the variable, and it affects straight people as well as gay people equally. Yet today, modern medicines have changed that rate to nearly the same as those not affected. It can still be a deadly disease, but many live a long time and sexual orientation is not the determining variable, but being HIV positive. Most gay people are not HIV positive.

While gay youth have a suicide rate around 4 times, not 25 times that of their straight peers, it is the prejudice you promote that drives too many over the edge.

"Being lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender is not a risk factor for suicide," Powers emphasized. "Actually, it is the social stigma and discrimination that LGBT youth experience that results in feelings and behaviors which are, in turn, associated with suicidal behavior." The American Association of Suicidology.

The Prejudice and discrimination you promote causes needless suffering and death.

A long time ago, the homosexuals had a very good argument –“What we do in the privacy of our own home is no one else’s business, so leave us alone”... or health care, and therefore you hate me, and I will take it out on you accordingly.” That is a sure fire way for society to break down into hooliganism.
A not so long time ago, gay people were still fighting laws that allowed them to be arrested, imprisoned, and tortured for simply being gay. But even then, full equality as required by the constitution was the goal. Marriage is simply the last of the major laws that target gay people for denial of equal protection of the laws.

We are not talking about what health care or transportation laws should apply to everyone equally. We are still discussing laws that protect fundamental rights for some, and deny those same rights to others, in violation of the 5th and 14th amendment requirements of equal protections of the law for all persons.

"To assert that homosexuality is not a mental disorder does not mean that all gay and lesbian people are free of emotional problems or mental illness. In fact, some studies suggest that while most gays and lesbians are well adjusted, some (especially those subjected to harassment and prejudice or living in cultures extremely intolerant of homosexuality) are at risk for higher levels of depression and anxiety (Meyer, 2003, Cochran & Mays, 2006). This is a logical and expected correlation. Depression and anxiety are common, understandable reactions to societal prejudice, religious condemnation, employment discrimination, and familial rejection." (APA)

"When it comes to the question of whether homosexuality is a mental disorder, scientific research is unanimous -- it is not. Despite that research, however, many religious and political groups continue to selectively quote scientific literature to buttress arguments that homosexuality is a pathology. They often take scientific literature out of context or extrapolate information from studies that focus on other populations. Their goal is to use scientific studies to bolster arguments against giving gay and lesbian people political or civil rights." (APA)
