Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.

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

This is a legal, not romantic issue.

Your mom would have aborted you if she had know about your defect.
I'm sure she told you that often!

From the article titled:
Federal judge: Arguments against gay marriage 'are not those of serious people'

A federal judge on Tuesday struck down Kentucky's ban on gay marriage, and in doing so he issued a scathing rebuke to opponents of same-sex marriage.

In his ruling, District Judge John G. Heyburn II shredded the state's argument that a gay marriage ban was necessary from a biological standpoint because "traditional marriages contribute to a stable birth rate which, in turn, ensures the state's long-term economic stability." Heyburn pulled no punches in labeling that claim "disingenuous."

“….These arguments are not those of serious people. Though it seems almost unnecessary to explain, here are the reasons why. Even assuming the state has a legitimate interest in promoting procreation, the Court fails to see, and Defendant never explains, how the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage has any effect whatsoever on procreation among heterosexual spouses. Excluding same-sex couples from marriage does not change the number of heterosexual couples who choose to get married, the number who choose to have children, or the number of children they have.[...] The state's attempts to connect the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage to its interest in economic stability and in "ensuring humanity's continued existence" are at best illogical and even bewildering….”.

-District Judge John G. Heyburn II

Baptist church in Ky. plans first gay wedding
Jul. 5, 2014
http://archive.coloradoan.com/usatoday/articl...

David Bannister Jr., 29, and Steven Carr, 25, are to be married next May at Highland Baptist Church, which will break with most churches in its denomination by performing its first gay marriage ceremony.

"It takes courage to step out into the unknown," said Pastor Joe Phelps, who was approached by Bannister and Carr about the ceremony 2 1/2 years ago. "It's taking us courage to be one of the first churches to do this."

As state law stands, the marriage will not be recognized by the state of Kentucky, which is appealing court rulings overturning its ban on gay marriage and requiring it to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

Major New Study Finds Kids Raised By Same-Sex Couples Are ‘Healthier And Happier’
BY JUDD LEGUM JULY 5, 2014 AT 8:19 PM UPDATED: JULY 5, 2014 AT 9:00 PM

I saw in the article where Family Voice Australia research officer Roslyn Phillips said the study should be taken with caution as the parents who volunteered for the study likely self-selected as happy families.

"You've got to look beyond studies like these to what happens when the child reaches adulthood, and that’s the only time with independent assessment you can really say what’s gone on with the parenting and then ask them how they’re going in all sorts of ways, I think that would be a more relevant study," said Phillips. "You've got to look beyond studies like these to what happens when the child reaches adulthood and that’s the only time, with independent assessment you can really say, what’s gone on with the parenting."

So I did.

Yes, it can be a spiritual or religious one, but that's not the government's business.

I think you are the one that is simple, or at least has no understanding of the law.

It was not addressed because, like all the arguments you make here, it simply is not relevant. Much like yourself.

1. There was a 50% rise in sexual assault in the military last year. 14,000 men and 12,000 women. They believe the reports of sexual assault on males is vastly under estimated. No it was not a mistake to bar gays and women.
2. Ss marrage is vastly inferior to marriage. It is literally an oxymoron.
3. Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning. It should be illegal.
1. Even if this is a fact, their "belief" about assault on males is not. So this is a non-point.

2. Yes, you've said this 1000 times. Even if it is true and not your subjective opinion, it is still irrelevant.

3. That question has already been decided. Lawrence v. Texas, 2003. Look it up. Never mind that most people practicing this sexual act are heterosexual.

Repeating the same refuted arguments over and over again only makes you look even more stupid and crazy.

Irrelevant.

Please see the Establishment clause of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and the cases interpreting it.

b : the mutual relation of married persons : wedlock

Yep. And He made a few who are both. Fortunately the vast majority of humans are either male or female, including gay folks. I would argue that those He made with both genders are also human, and created by His design.

Are you really arguing here that those whose bodies have attributes of both genders were created by Satan?

Yes, it does.

Definitions change. We change them all the time. You are free to resist, disbelieve, grumble and bitch, but it changes nothing.

Also, I have been married for 14 years, and I expect, since you like to quantify these things, that my marriage is "better" than yours.

By a longshot. You are obviously repressed and unfulfilled in your life.

Sorry, kiddo, this is a specious argument. No two married couples are physically equal. This has no bearing upon their right to equal protection of the law.

Please quit offering stupid and irrelevant arguments, KiMare.
