My definition is narrow? This from someone who wants to dumb down marriage to a contract between two people? Really.<quoted text>
Your definition of marriage is childish and as narrow as your mind. You don't see marriage as a committment between two people who are romantically and emotionally attracted to one another; you define marriage based upon little more than having "genital compatability", as though the only requirement for a "proper" marriage is interoperable parts.
Unsophisticated people like yourself cannot expand their minds beyond the "mommy and daddy and baby makes three" mentality of 1950's America. I understand that, and if that's where your head is at, fine; just don't prevent other people from enjoying the benefits of marriage.
Stop acting like you're normal and "those people" are freaks. I mean, lets ace it, some guys get off owning and carrying guns as an extension of their manhood, but I don't call them freaks for it.
believe denying marriage to a relationship
will prevent love
demand any committed relationship
has to be called marriage
claim rights and benefits can only be acquired
by a imposition on marriage
equate the diversity of two genders
with the redundancy of same genders
desecrate the sacred tradition of all major religions
and violate the historic practice of every single culture in history
believe a fundamental change to the building block of society
will have absolutely no affect
think a law can change
the reality of crucial distinctions in relationships
pretend duplicating sexuality
is the same as blending masculinity and femininity
condemn some children to parents of only one gender
and deliberately deny some children one natural parent
ignore the design of sexual union
to manipulate a harmful act
violate evolution's law of reproduction
to equate a genetic dead end
risk the healthiest human relationship
to include one of the unhealthiest
parallel the sole birthplace of every other relationship
with one that can reproduce none
dilute all these things
down to just 'a committed relationship of two people'
Then, and only then, can you equate same-sex unions with marriage.
