It's not "heterosexual marriage", but rather conjugal, as in husband and wife, marriage. Sexual identity labels are irrelevant. Besides what would you call a marriage of a self professed "straight" man, and a self professed "lesbian" woman, or a "bisexual" woman?
still lying openly about that, huh? why? conjugal marriage also includes same sex marriages.

Some men have married bi-sexual women and seem to be comfortable with it. It's their business.
As far as a strict lesbian marrying a straight man it's happened. Usually does not work out given she loses sexual interest in him and from what I've seen it's a matter of her "coming out" while in the marriage.
So how would that marriage be describe in terms of sexual identity labels?
Marriage between those of the same sex involves sex between the parties involved as well, don't forget that little tidbit of factual knowledge.
Sexual yes, sex no. Bill Clinton did not have sex with that woman.

In this country now, Scripture is being thrown out of schools, some churches ( I use to attend one & had to leave because they did not believe in the Old Testament)
When was Scripture ever part of schools? What Church was that? Why would you attend a church like that?

Why do we have to call it something at all ?

It's all an opinion. You believe heterosexual couples are "better" for lack of another word than gay couples for such poetic and fanciful thoughts such as "a union so profound".
LOL!!!
Jesus H Christ - you have an opinion heterosexual marriages trump gay unions. We got it already but there's not a shred of factual evidence in that tangled mess you keep regurgitating so if you've got nothing else just sit down and shut up because your turn is over sister.
Here's a fact - more and more states are recognizing gay marriage represents a right to it's citizens and have since been legalizing it.
Your response is an opinion. It is also a dumb opinion, full of denial.

Here let me help you;

"Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,"

In all of human history, in every single culture, marriage has been between a male and female. You call that an 'opinion'.

"a union so profound, it is described as the union of Mars and Venus."

You ignorantly scoffed at this, as if being a male or female isn't distinct. FIVE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE DISAGREED WITH YOU! At every level of existence, men and women are distinct. Uniting them is a life-long challenge. You claim that is an 'opinion'.

"It reunites humanity to the roots of life,"

ALL life began as genderless. Marriage reunites a male and female back to the earliest roots of life. You call that an 'opinion'.

"while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life."

Every scientific study of family types rates natural families as head and shoulders above any other default family. You throw your own mother and father under the bus and call that an 'opinion'.

"It is the blend of masculinity and femininity."

If it's not, what is it? That is an 'opinion'???

"The wisdom of logic and intuition united."

Science once again is dissed by your 'opinion'. Moreover, now you throw your gender under the bus!

"Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced."

How many women do you see flexing their muscles? Why is domestic violence most often against women? Or is that part of an 'opinion' too?

"Protection and nurture combined as one."

Men buy guns and boys say 'Hi mom' on TV. Or think about how many shows you see with women chasing the bad guys, while the guys are watching the kids. Your opinion is that's an 'opinion'...

"A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders."

Uniting the strengths of each gender doesn't create a unique being? If not, what does it do, nothing??? At the least, it does more than your claim that these facts are an 'opinion'.

A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.

Your turn; How does a ss couple equate to any one of these distinctions. In your opinion?

Smile.

Oh, and here's a fact for you;

A ss couple will only ever be a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage. SCOTUS can't change that, can they?

Whatever you are you're mixed up enough to have your questions answered in full but unable to respond in kind. I'll bet you haven't had a job in quite some time as well - just a suspicion.
There is not one true statement in your response.

You follow a lie with an ad homoan troll attack.

No suspicion about that.

When white supremacists attack black people, they call them the "N" word.

When rednecks attack homosexuals, they call them the “F” word.

They’re kinda like battle cries.

I just call it as I see it. FREAKY FRUITY AND ATROCIOUS! GOT AN ARGUMENT WITH THAT, PAL? I SUGGEST YOU TAKE IT UP WITH THE MAN UPSTAIRS. I don't care about the opinions of you blowhards.

I agree! He refused to have intercourse with Monica. She was the agressor in that affair, and perhaps a plant in an attempt to put him in trouble.

Maybe lesbians dress to please themselves. When I get up in the morning I don't rush to the closet to see what outfit I can put on that will attract other gay men. Do you get up in the morning with the intention of attracting other women?

Most people put on the clothes and fix themselves up based on what makes them feel comfortable.

And lesbians don't "act like a man". They act like "lesbians".

I know you won't acknowledge this because all you're interested in is tearing people down.

I just feel it's necessary to expose your stupidity.

So, if you're "literally a lesbian", and you are married to a woman, AND you have a vagina, then you and your wife are THE poster children for same-sex marriage.

"In the End" you are a hypocrite.
