I don't think it is funny at all. I think it is obscene to explain the mechanics of a gay relationship to a 6 year old. If you check, you might find that marriage existed before the creation of any states or the federal government. It is exactly about the money and privileges granted. Tolerance is not a taught concept, it is a matter of acceptance, and we normal people refuse to take gays seriously, as the whole image of gays is instinctively frowned upon. Leave our kids alone and they will single out f*gs for denial and contempt all on their own, without any hesitation. I am surprised that you are married to a woman and defending the f*gs, unless you are also a woman.
LOL. Yeah, Einstein, Rose TH is a woman.

Yes. The difference is great. Whereas the Christian recognizes himself to be a fallen creature, he aspires to the higher. The Godless "Liberal", on the other hand, is perfectly content to wallow in the mud of ignorance and shame. As the Bible puts it:

"The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful." (Isaiah 32:5)

"For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail." (Isaiah 32:6)

"The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right." (Isaiah 32:7)

"But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand." (Isaiah 32:8)

"Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." (2 Timothy 3:5)

A religious ceremony is exactly what marriage is. FACT. It was created to join a man and a woman in the eyes of God. Fact. Science shows that a single gender relationship is doomed to sterility and extinction. Fact. Bupkes ? Is that a technical term .....
Hey, I just looked it up....

Marriage has historically occurred to join two people and two families. In many cultures, it's more of a business transaction than being about love and commitment.

Regardless of why a marriage occurs, it is ultimately the legal union of two people.

The wedding ceremony is often based on religious belief and practice, but marriage itself is a civil institution.

Same-sex couples simply want the right to have the legal protections that opposite sex couples take for granted.

There are 1,138 rights that same-sex couples don't currently have - including filing joint taxes, the right to visit and make medical decisions for a partner, receiving Social Security when a partner dies, and not being penalized by taxes when we inherit something from our partner.

So, I think homos should have the right to be married because they are citizens, pay taxes and should have the same rights as other American citizens, and should not be judged by religious values as opposed to Constitutional rights.

I just figured I'd add my 25 cents to this controversy. When you say it's a "fact" that's only your "religious belief" talking, not a fact of rights as a citizen. You can't use the Bible as any back up to your argument because the Bible allowed for slavery and wife beating, and lots of things that are against American law. You can only use the Bible for your PERSONAL beliefs, not to "make laws" for other people.

Just sayin....

I was taught in Government school that the earth is spherical. My high paid taxpayer supported Government teacher agents were never able to satisfactorily answer why - if that is true - why the Chinamen and the Australians do not fall off. Are you a card carrying member of the cult of the round earth?

I am a woman who is legally married to my wife and even if I were straight, which I'm not......I'd still defend the right to marry for Gays and Lesbians because they are American Citizens and deserve the same right to marry the person they choose......just like I was able to and you were able to, if you are married!!!!
How many times do I have to point out to you that redumdant genders cannot be married. Doesn't matter who says you are, it's just plain impossible! They don't fit physically and they simply duplicate everything.

Marriage through history, in every culture has been diverse genders reunited as one with the ponderous propensity to produce human fruit. The sole birthplace of every single other human relationship in existence.

That union hails back to our evolutionary birthplace of simple genderless life. Between there and here, millions of years refined the survival of the fittest to be male and female. Rn & El are clearly genetic defects in deep denial.

Why would you want to explain "the mechanics of a gay" OR a straight relationship to a six yr old?

And...BEFORE marriage existed...what do you think happened? Cave man love maybe? Harems?

Or are you going to mention a talking snake?(which would be part of YOUR belief system)

What would you do if one of your kids turns out to be gay?

A circle is flat. And the heavens are in no way like a curtain, they virtually 100% empty space. But I am willing to let that one go, poetic license...

However, at one point Satan takes Jesus to the top of a mountain and shows him *all* the kingdoms of earth. That would only be possible if the earth is flat.
