I think you are lying about your name. Every time you post, all I can read is 'Dick'. I think you know that, don't you?

As to angry, not at all. In fact, the level you stoop to only shows your desperation. Everyone sees the troll behavior.

You may be a late Dick, but you have failed to address even the simple post with a reasoned response. Here, give it a shot again;

Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.

A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.

Smile.

you write has EVER been scientific fact. If you think it is, then you are completely clueless about what constitutes a scientific fact. You don't get to invent your own science and you don't get to invent your own facts. You are nothing but an opinionated, uneducated philistine.
Science invents its own facts all the time. Eggs are bad then good. Doctors once thought smoking was good for ya. Science brought you asbestos, crystal meth, heroin, LSD, etc etc etc

AGENDASTATS: When the agendist thinks takes scientific knowledge too seriously. They refuse to admit that science can twist the numbers to support ANY view point.

No.... people with an agenda twist the numbers to support any view point. Manipulating statistics is not science.... it's fraud.

But keep slinging your bullshit, if nothing else it's entertaining.

We know both the good and the bad about all of those things through science.

But the less people know about science, the easier it is for those who would misuse it to line their own pockets to do so. Science also tells us we should not rush products to market before we understand them, but greed often overrule science.

You can't blame the method of investigation for the misuse of the results.

Again, you can't blame the method of investigation for the misuse of the results.

Science is a method of investigation. Information obtained through science requires others to find the same results for it to be valid. That rules out "twisting the numbers" to get your desired result, as your work is available for others to see and verify or refute your results.

Decades of scientific research and clinical observation has led every mainstream medical and mental health scientific organization in the US to agree being gay is a natural expression of human love and bonding for a minority of the population.

There is no scientifically justifiable reason for refusing to treat gay people equally under the laws in effect for straight people.

Science, as well as history, has also shown that prejudice and discrimination cause needless suffering and death.

Funny, a recent study of lesbian family studies just found them to be extremely biased and fraught with unscientific methods. Yet they are knowingly used in court cases right now.

This at the expense of children.

Documentation?

Would that change decades of clinical experience and research showing the relationship between parent and child is more important than any other variable including biology?

Your desire to dehumanize gay people doesn't change the fact all humans qualify for all human rights by virtue of being human, no matter how you choose to dehumanize them in your world.
