My point was, just because homosexuality happens in the animal kingdom, it doesn't make it right. So stop using it as a reason to accept it.
Animals kill their own kind for food (cannibalism). That doesn't mean it's ok for us to do it too.
Animals kill for fun. That doesn't mean we should follow their lead and call it natural.
My dog used to hump a basketball, that doesn't mean humans should.
I do not use it as the reason it should be acceptable, I use it to show how it is not unnatural.
You guys keep claiming it is unnatural, then I respond with evidence.
The act harms no one anymore so than heterosexual relationships.
I really do not expect you to "accept" it, but I would hope you just used a logical reason to prohibit gay marriage. You have yet to do so.

I don't like religion, but I would never try to outlaw it. Outlawing such things causes more harm than good.

M
Why should I know this when their is no good evidence to the claim? If you wish for me to believe your claim, then show me it is true with something like evidence. Hell, I would be happy if you could just produce some logic and reason, but you do not even try.
Unlike yourself, I do not believe claims with no evidence. Did some ancient book tell you about animals killing for fun?

Believing in things that are not there is also natural, but I certainly do not try to outlaw it.

Humans have a large brain. We can use that brain to help determine what is detrimental and what is not. We can observe nature to inform us of what is detrimental or not. You have yet to demonstrate how homosexual marriage is detrimental.

I see America's number one founding principle is freedom.
I have demonstrated how your comparisons to gay marriage are detrimental (incest, bestiality, pedophilia).
Now either demonstrate how gay marriage is detrimental or else you just look like a superstitious person who condemns homosexuality with no logical reason to back up his bigotry.

You can't learn about your culture if you don't know the bible.

Study the bible or remain ignorant; the choice is yours.

There is a case right now of a father and a daughter who were separated when she was young. They met, formed a sexual relationship, then found out they were related.
They are trying to prove that there is a biological attraction there because they are blood related, when in most cases, if they had been able to stay together, forms a mental block that tells the brain that person is off limits. Kinda like if your sister was hot, you'd still think she was gross. But if you were separated, you wouldn't see it that way. In other words, they are trying to prove that this is natural, and biologically sound.
Well they can try, but the evidence is stacked against them. It is well documented that human incest produces birth defects. This in effect, is directly causing harm to a third party.
Evidence shows pheromones repel us from our relatives.

All humans fear death, but your beliefs might quite some of those fears. Not sure why you make fear of death sound like a bad thing?
The military trains people to not fear death so much. Likely for the same reasons religion did so. Whatever makes for a good soldier, marching off to war, with the cross of Jesus........

Know who did not fear death for the same reasons as yourself? The 9/11 hijackers. Marching off to war......

Kind of hard to understand your writing, as it is clear you dropped out of school at a young age.

Tax and health issues are important. Why would you deny people these privileges due to your superstition? Do you just hate equality and are that darned selfish?

Can you prove god made marriage?

So you equate killing for dominance, fun?

Your first mistake was using such a subjective word as "fun".

I demonstrated why a cat will toy with a mouse or a bug. It is practice for hunting.

It is hard to have a discussion with someone who writes like a five year old.
Do you know what the word "hypocrite" means?

How can I know something when my brain stops functioning?

There's already tons of places that allow same sex civil unions. If ayone actually really wanted to, the opportunities to do so already exist.
And after a few years later-from I have gathered, very reliably I might add (from a walking the walk of source-it's the same as any other, bless they're hearts too.
Vegas oughta just put up an instant wedding web page-and SPARE the nation a WHOLE lot of time, tax payer dollars and MORE WHINING, about stuff MANY (not all however) people will never agree with, because
THAT is just REALITY.
Worst admin ever-- nothing but THIRTY years BACKWARDS regression and whine whine whine ignorance.
So what am I wrong about? You sure did not point out any.

This question proves nothing. There is no answer to this question that will satisfy either party. It's as pointless as asking: can a true writer write a poem that he cannot read? Well, then he must not be a good writer.
Their is a point and that point is, some things are just impossible. So when a religious person claims god can do anything, it is a demonstrably false claim.

Another point was shown here. When a religious person is confronted with a hard question, he avoids it like the plague. He runs and claims he is not running. The self denial is overwhelmingly evident.

Here's too easy examples of this. Cats kill mice just to play with the carcass, then get bored and move on.
Dogs kill rabbits, or other small animals while wagging their tails about it, spit it out and then walk away. It certainly isn't for food. It isn't because they are practicing for the big game on Saturday. It isn't because they need to show how macho they are.
You don't need a study for that one. Just own a pet.
And just how can you know they are not practicing for the big game? The big game in the animal world is killing other animals to survive. It is a game that must be played and perfected. Now you seem to claim they need no practice and can know their emotions as they practice?

This wasn't even my point. My point was that just because the animal kingdom has certain behaviors, doesn't mean we should copy them.
So even if you believe dogs and cats kill for practice or to hone their skills, doesn't mean humans should do this.
So now humans hunting is immoral?
You seem not to be able to understand the value of practice.
