<quoted text>I see same sex marriage as adding a standard of segregation, a new form of gender apartheid marriage. I see same sex marriage as anti-gay because every gay was born of male/female union.
Exclusion is a positive action because we don't want unqualified people licensed to marry, fly passenger planes or performing surgical operations. Exclusion maintains standards.
Gender apartheid is segregation of the sexes. Complete segregation. Homosexuals make up somewhere between 2 & 10% of the population depending upon what figures you cite. Just because two gay men get married doesn't mean they'll exclude women from their lives.

Of course everyone was born from male/female union (even if it is just through AI). So that is a non-starter. That still isn't a rational argument against same sex marriage. It is just your opinion. And I really don't see what you mean by it being anti-gay. That seems like quite a stretch IMHO. Perhaps you would like to explain how it is anti-gay.

I can take flying lessons and become a pilot. I do happen to have the qualifications to perform surgery. That was through a lengthy education and licensing process. The analogy still doesn't apply to homosexuals in general. Loads of heterosexuals don't really qualify as suitable marriage partners. At least not in my opinion, which should have no bearing on their ability to get married.

That decision was based on sexual privacy. It made no assertion of " a normal, legal, expression of human sexuality."
Nor has science. In fact, the opposite is true. Obviously.
The basis of your assertions crumbles without #1.

<quoted text>
So you are admitting you lied about science and the law validating
'a normal, legal, expression of human sexuality'?
You made the claim 'honey'.

Sounds like he was saying that homosexual behavior cannot be considered a crime. And if it's not a crime and heterosexual behavior is not a crime, then they must be equally legal under the law.

Morality? Who's talking morality? I'm talking science.
Look, the world is round, the sky is blue, and homosexuals are normal. It's not up for discussion.
Why is this so hard for people to get?
Normal is a subjective word. However, homosexuality is not normal. This is explained through science, because man and woman were put on this earth with complementary sex organs meant to procreate the species. This is beyond discussion. By claiming normality in their relationships homosexuals, and attempting to use the government to legally bless their unions, they hope to indoctrinate society to accept it as so. In this process they are affecting one of the freedoms most parents desire to have for their children. That is to have them educated with the understanding of homosexuality that they consider to be self evident. Granted that people have abused this basic tenet of nature in many ways, including homosexuality, this does not alter what should be seen by any rational mind as the fact that homosexuality is not normal. This is not to say that you cannot be gay, you can. But do not ask us, or expect us, to recognize it as valid, and equal to heterosexuality, because it is not. Using the government to force this view upon us is actually setting your movement back.

"homosexuals are not normal, this has been proven by science...'

from there you inject your own beliefs, instead of citing some hard research.

"man and women were put on this earth with complimentary sex organs"..........is that your proof?

kinda specualting there arnt we??

that looked more like a short cut to thinking.

who really knows what is "normal"??

"normal" might just be a safe place for bigots to hide.

and that is about it.

Neither is alcoholism a crime, but we can all agree that it is wrong.

Cherry picking, are we?

"who really knows what is "normal"?? "Normal" is a subjective word. Most of the time, it is used in place of "usually".
""homosexuals are not normal, this has been proven by science...'
from there you inject your own beliefs, instead of citing some hard research." Science has shown us that if it were not for man and woman being designed for one another, we would not be here, at all. Does this, also, sound like mere speculation?
"that looked more like a short cut to thinking." No, it has been exhaustively studied through the centuries and stood up to every test, until now. Merely throw in some legalese and enough wanna-be lawyer types, and add a few libertines and we arrive at our current point.

You get the clue. Your rationale is not valid, else it would be up to this comparison. Alcoholism or homosexuality, it doesn't matter, both are wrong. Both exist in the world. My rationale holds up to either premise. If it is wrong, it is wrong. Period.

Alcoholism is a disease. It impairs one's ability to function in society, hold a job, contribute to a marriage/family, and survive. It kills by destroying livers and contributing to automobile accidents.

Homosexuality is not a disease. In and of itself it destroys nothing. The negative reactions to homosexuality cause most of the harm that comes from homosexuality.

you bigots havn't ever succeeded in presenting a rational arguement as to WHY you think homosexuality is wrong...

the rest of us DO NOT think of it as WRONG....but simply as a preference, and a civil rights issue.

you claimimg some sort of moral high ground, with your bigotry is laughable!!!
