The bible is utterly irrelevant to a discussion of civil law. Read the first amendment.The Bible does not use modern sexual political identity labels, such as "gay". Nor is "The Bible" a singular book. You seem to demonstrate a stupidity that you accuse others of exhibiting.
I agree, one wonders why there is such resistance to letting it do so?True, however, as it relates to the issue at hand, our Government, should treat all men, and all women the same.
No, Pietro, their rights are, in many jurisdictions, expressly denied. You have yet to indicate any compelling state interest served by denying same sex couples the right to marry that would render such a restriction constitutional.Their rights ARE protected, the same as any other man or woman, in this regard
One must believe in creationism for this to be applicable. The reality remains that all men are not created equal, they are not born equal, and the only means to ensure any measure of equality is to enforce it by law. When we fail to live up to this civic promise of legal equality, our Republic is injured.All men are created equal., and thus are treated equally, as it relates to this issue.
