I'm not catholic and I don't believe in gay marriage either. They want to be "gay", be gay. But gay marriage should not be allowed. I think their are way to many homosexual men and women these days...
yes

The handicapped are allowed to marry, hell even mentally handicapped people can marry. So "defect" and "unnatural" don't really cut it.

The only reason to prevent SSM is if it causes identifiable harm. All this nonsense about mating behaviors is irrelevant.
there is more domestic violence against "gays", then there are straight people!= FACT!

I already explained the reasoning for the question. You need to look up mating behavior and the strength of its influence on behavior.

No assumption needed. You haven't disproved the point.

Here is why it matters. Words describe reality. Accuracy makes us safe and happy. Inaccuracy is called denial. It is dangerous not only for the person in denial, but all those around him. An example would be labeling arsenic 'sugar'.

In your example, you are equating genetic defects, but denying the gender distinctions. This is exactly why I encouraged you to read up on mating behavior.

Once again, if you look at the most basic essence of marriage, it is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Not only is it impossible to equate gay couples to marriage, they are diametrically opposed to each other.

I appreciate an honest question.

Why is that the only reason to resist calling gay unions marriage? Who says so? There may be millions of valid reasons to resist the attempt.

Moreover, it is at the best speculation. Unprovable either way.

Like your opinions, eh? That's all they are; just opinions.

Like my opinion that you are a total douche-bag and a Kuntmare.

Just opinions.

All Christians should be against this and maybe you all should read the Bible. Btw I have never been apart of the Neo-Nazi party.

I think you mean "a part". As written, it conveys an entirely different meaning.

I will never deny you your beliefs, but your beliefs have nothing to do with civil marriage in the USA.

I wonder how many problems we could solve if people focused less on imaginary gods and more on real world issues and solutions...

EXACTLY. These bible thumpers should mind their own business. What others do in their personal lives have NO affect on yours.
