You say that a penis doesn't belong in a rectum. Does that mean heterosexual anal sex is as perverted as homosexuality? It used to be against the law for a heterosexual couple to have anal sex, and not that long ago. Should we return to that legal prohibition because you think it's wrong?

The argument that people and animals will be allowed to get married is just willful stupidity. This won't happen until animals are legally defined as people, in which case more important problems like eating animals will have to be addressed before the marriage issue.

It's much more reasonable to worry about someone marrying a corporation, since they're both legally considered to be persons. If you're wondering, I have no problem with that.
sodomy still on the books in Texas.
Your right. Maybe animals and humans can have a civil union.
You're right I'm just being over the top. I don't really care about this issue. I have no vested interest in it. If the American people decide they want this so be it. I don't believe gays should have the right to get married. I'm not going to march against it. Just a view point. That's all. The beastiality the pedophilia is all a smoke screen to rile up all the uber gay activist who can't see beyond their genitalia and are ruled by their sexual orientation. Wether you accept the fact that our anatomy for procreation and every other higher evolved living thing is based on male and female reproductive organs. Dude on dude and female on female goes against the natural world. To validate that union with the sanctity of a marriage goes against nature, religion and our societal mores. Sorry. If you discount religion and the American values you can't deny that it is unnatural.

Sodomy laws were overturned by the Supreme Court about ten years ago. Interestingly, the case involved Texas.

However, before it was overturned, the definition of sodomy merely referred to "unnatural" sex acts. And oral sex was considered to be unnatural.

So the idea of what's natural or unnatural is not so clear-cut.

Also, to date, homosexual behavior has been observed in more than 1500 animal species. The percentage of human homosexuals remains basically constant ever since they started studying such things in the 1940s. This strongly implies that homosexuality is a natural biological function.

Your assertion that homosexuals are ruled by their sexual orientation is hilariously ironic considering the other thread about the sheriff's department. Cops are notorious for not being able to keep their dick in their pants.

Law enforcement officers having sex with each other? Tell me that's not unnatural and perverted. There should be a law against it.

Acceptance Of Gay Rights Becoming New Norm

5/15/2012 12:05 PM ET
(RTTNews)- Acceptance of the gay lifestyle is the new norm across much of the U.S., with a majority Americans in favor of legal rights for same-sex couples, according to two polls released this week.

A new Gallup poll shows a majority of Americans polled consider gay or lesbian relations morally acceptable. A Pew Research Center poll also detailed over half of those polled said their opinion of President Barack Obama did not change after his support of gay marriage legalization last week.

"Americans' acceptance of gays and lesbians as equal members of society has increased steadily in the past decade to the point that half or more now agree that being gay is morally acceptable, that gay relations ought to be legal, and that gay or lesbian couples should have the right to legally marry," the Gallup poll's 'Bottom Line' declared.

"While public support has been trending upward, support on all three measures was slightly higher in 2011 than in the new 2012 poll, suggesting attitudes may be leveling off - at least for the time being."

Among those polled by Gallup, 54 percent believed gay marriage should be legal, with the same number considering homosexual relations as morally acceptable. This number is slightly down from 2011 numbers - where they stood at 56 percent - but still suggests a general acceptance of gay lifestyle and legal rights.

The poll also shows 63 percent of Americans believe gay relations writ large should be legal, a significant increase from mid-2000 numbers around 56 percent. The approval numbers also varied by group and location, with non-religious Americans, women, youth and Democrats more supportive of gay rights. Among Christians, 51 percent of Catholics polled said they believe gay marriage should be legal, much higher than the 39 percent of Protestants.

Geographically, those living in the south were far less supportive than those living elsewhere.

Forty percent of southerners supported gay marriage with 43 percent saying gay relations are moral. This compared with over 50 percent in the east, west and Midwest pro-gay marriage and at or near 60 percent believing in the morality of gay lifestyles.

why does every issue revolve in someway with your sexual preference. The corporal was gay. So what. I'm sure there has been and currently are polygamist in the armed services. Let's legalize polygamy. I'm sure there has been pedophiles in the armed services as well. Let's drop the consent age to 10 years old. The states that have voted on this issue overwhelmingly have believed that a marriage is between a man and a women. It doesn't matter how many examples of great citizens you roll out as being gay it's no going to change the attitude of the country. And it's not going to change my attitude. It doesn't make me a bad person or a bigot. I respect your opinion and view but don't agree.

MN Pro Gay Marriage Republican: War Experience Taught Me the Importance of Love
Over the weekend the Minnesota Legislature passed a constitutional amendment that, if approved by voters in a 2012 ballot, would codify the existing statutory ban on same-sex marriage by placing discrimination in the Minnesota Constitution. Not all Republicans supported this action however, with Rep. John Kriesel (R-Cottage Grove) telling the state House that a near fatal experience during his military service changed his mind on gay marriage.
During his testimony, Kriesel said that being injured "woke" him up and changed him, adding: "Because of that, it's made me think about this issue. And say,'You know what, what would I do without my wife?' She makes me happy. Life is hard. We're in a really tough time in our history. Happiness is so, so hard to find for people. So they find it, they find someone that makes them happy, and we want to take that person away. We want to say,'Oh no, you can be together, you can love that person, but you can't marry them.' You can't marry them. That's wrong."
He goes on to say how he believes that the marriage amendment does not comport with the American values that he fought to protect. He also talks about a now deceased fellow servicemember who was gay and gave
his life during military service.
