Wow…did your wife have any idea that your marriage was so fragile?

Imagine, to be undone by the actions of strangers…she must feel very special.

They aren't required to. Your "distinctions" are completely irrelevant to everyone but you. Not a damn thing you can do to alter that fact.
Then this won't bother you;

Real marriage has always been and will always be a committed relationship between one man and one woman. Demanding it ain't so doesn't make it so.

It is the only relationship that reproduces naturally, a father and mother raising their children.

It is the only relationship that is the birthing place of every single other type of relationship.

It is the only relationship that reunites two completely unique parts. A complimentary union, instead of a duplicated half.

It is the only relationship that sexually fit together by design. There is no abusive violation of design.

It is the only relationship that restores a male and female to the very original roots of our creation, pre-gender.

It is the only union that blends two different genders bringing perfect balance. A same gender union lacks diversity and is off balance.

All this says nothing about the cultural, historic and religious distinctions that marriage wholly embraces.

It clearly has, needs and deserves a special and unique definition. It is absurd and sacrilegious to equate ss couples.

SMile.

Scott, the Bible has no relevance to SSM in Illinois.
Further, many of us HAVE studied the Bible for years and years and our perspective happens to differ greatly from yours.
You use your Bible as a weapon. It was never intended to be a book for beating others over the head.
The Bible has been a protection and guide for good people for thousands of years.

You don't have a different 'perspective', you reject and discount what it says because it condemns your behavior.

No one is using the Bible to beat you over the head. They are remaining faithful to it's wisdom. Something every culture and religion in history agrees with.

Just as you have the right to reject science, medicine, morals and faiths, we have the right to support them.

Says who? Anyone can quote from the ridiculous bible anytime they damn well feel like it.
Oh, and I do love that you actually think there is something to be "learned" from your book of myths. That's so cute.
I don't generally make posits without exhaustive research from all sides of the subject in question.

That said, it's not unreasonable to assert that animal sexuality (including the human animal) can be influenced both by genetics and circumstance.

In genetically healthy cases, our psychology predisposes us to be attracted to the sexual cues and ornamentation of members of the opposite sex.

This is VERY important as it's the (only) behavior that promotes procreation. In a biological sense heterosexuality is very 'good' because it helps keep 'the torch lit.'

Consequently, in that same sense evolutionary biology would deem homosexuality terrible (literally that strong of a word is needed) because in every case it guarantees the legacy of one's genes (and all it's potential) to be permanently blocked from entering into the next generation. We hear anecdotal examples of this when we hear one say something like "He's the perfect man. He's so intelligent and handsome. Too bad he's gay. To think such a great catch like that will never have kids...)

That said, it is easy to see that nature is not without flaw. We see cases of lifelong homosexuality in the animal kingdom and thus the belief that homosexuality can be genetic, is fairly sound.

HOWEVER we ALSO see cases of circumstantial homosexuality. This form of homosexuality can occur, and is easily seen (although certainly not limited to) forms of extreme heterosexual repression.

Otherwise 'straight' individuals can override natural heterosexual urges and engage in homosexuality in cases where they endure exaggerated deprivation from members of the opposite sex. In this case, the urge for virtually any type of sex becomes so overwhelming it outweighs any genetically predisposed attractions. Examples include the sex psychology of prison inmates, priests who take lifelong vows of celibacy, etc..,

If sexuality can be influenced by both nature and nurture, what helps predict how readily a person may engage in homosexuality? All indications seem to point at a "sexual continuum."

Those who are genetically healthy with respect to heterosexual instinct, are on one extreme of the continuum. It is very hard to sway such people into homosexuality, as their receptivity to opposite genders cues is very acute. Such people would arguably never engage in homosexuality even in cases of extreme heterosexual deprivation.

As we move along the continuum we start seeing people who are partially oblivious to gender cues and ornamentation, and thus attracted to more androgynous qualities.

At the opposite end of the continuum are the genetic defects with respect to sexuality, and whose natural attractions are polar opposite to what's needed to continue the species; the homosexuals. These persons may be as difficult to reform into heterosexuality as staunch are to homosexuality.

All-in-all, this is a fair summary of the conditions and influences of sexuality.

Since most humans have sexuality functioning within the heterosexual range (survival minded behavior), it seems pretty easy to understand the subconscious resistance to liberal acceptance of homosexuality (anti-survival/destructive behavior). It's perhaps for this reason that there's an innate almost ineffable moral objection to homosexuality.

Smile.

Disagreeing with immorality and desecrating marriage is not the same as hating a person.

You might want to take a look in the mirror?
