please do not call me 'honey' because for one i do not know you and secondly it is a form of belittlement.<quoted text>
Honey, you have listened to gay twirl talking points without engaging your brain.
No one is saying marriage "requires" children.
The FACT is that 96% of marriages DO involve children, so they distinguish marriage and must be considered. Marriage is the ONLY relationship that births all other relationships. That is true throughout nature where there are two genders.
The value you hold your OWN mother and father SCREAMS against gay unions being the same as marriage!
The FACT also is that marriage in every single culture in all of human history has involved both genders. Not a single culture has EVER accepted gay 'marriage' from start to to finish.
The union of opposite genders is infinitely more complex and difficult than any redundant relationship. A CHILD can look at marriage and gay unions and distinguish the difference. Especially when one couple (and only one) is mom and dad, right?
Gays unions have every right and potential establishing their OWN rights and privileges JUST LIKE MARRIAGE DID. But imposing a imposter relationship over the most significant one is dangerous and dumb!
secondly you are incorrect. poster 'thisguy' in post #144966 did infer marriage which produced no children were 'dead ends'.
i cannot believe your figure of 96% of heterosexual marriages due to the reasoning i see no facts supporting this claim.
your claim of homosexual marriages as being 'imposters' is merely a reflection of your opinion and not one universally seen.
i appreciate your input but it is hard to believe your statements above given you have no references to back your claims with the remainder being statements regarding your opinions on the matter. sorry.
