Sorry, but you'd be wrong again.......and regardless of what the real reason behind marriage was......it matters not in today's society because things have changed......and not every couple who can procreate, WILL procreate and marriage ISN'T always involved.....and parenting DOESN'T rely on the couple being biologically related to the child in every circumstances!!!!

Get use to......Same-Sex Couples ARE getting married and raising children:-)

So you are saying people that marry that cannot or do not have children are not actually married?

I donít think you will get a large following with that.

What about a widow who has children, but the re-marries and does not have children in that marriage... you want to dissolve those marriages too?

I am not about to hand you or your religion that kind of power.

Besides there is nothing to protect, I am married ( heterosexual marriage ) and the 18,000 legal same sex marriages did not harm my marriage in anyway whatsoever. I understand your marriage may be more fragile, but mine doesnít need protection.

There you go again with that "you don't comprehend me" whining.

You're right, we don't. Because you are an idiot!

Federal gay marriage nationwide can now be a reality.

This is what we needed. I don't even know what to say. My state of Pennsylvania, where gay marriage isn't legal, I could get married next year. Oh my god this is very emotional for me.

Working on Saturday is condemned in the Bible. Below are some Buy-bull verses that condemn working on Saturday.

"Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death." Exodus 35:2

"And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation. And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him. And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp." Numbers 15:32-35

I always find it amusing when this topic comes up. People get upset about something that will not affect their lives at all. In most cases it's fundietards trying to legislate their beliefs. How gay marriage is going to impact someone's life is a mystery to me. It all comes down to a "my way or the highway" mentality!

That judge is violating the U.S Constitution by taking the power of the peoples votes... Same sex marriage isn't protected under the U.S Constitution! Obviously it wouldn't be controversial if it was! The founders wouldn't have supported same sex anything because it fell under the "Sodomy Law" that was in effect until the Liberal party was formed in the late 1800's.. The dictionary clearly defines Marriage as 1 man & 1 woman in holy matrimony... So in reality Government really has no say in marriage because it comes from the church! Churches are against homosexuality (unless they're 501C3).....

It's alright enjoy it while it lasts lol The American Resistance will return America back to the Good Moral Country we used to be with the soon to come 2nd American Revolution!! GOD BLESS AMERICA & THE AMERICAN PATRIOTS

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's antipathy toward the Obama's administration is evident: She can take that wagging finger and sit on it and spin.

She is a has been, dried up OLD HAG.

Most of the Tea Party haggs are like Janet Brewer anyway.

There a few haggs in Glendora, California too!

Let me show you how you are wrong

I could create a bill ( easy to do in California ) that denies the rights of blue eyed people to vote, passed by the majority of brown eyed people.

it would be deemed unconstitutional, even if it passed

the same thing here, the problem is we allow such unconstitutional bills to be voted upon in the first place, that proposition should have been struck down before going to the vote.

Gay people being married ( 18,000 legal marriages in the state so far that I am aware of ) has certainly not hurt my marriage in any way, if yours is so fragile that it hurt yours, perhaps you should be looking elsewhere as to what the issue with your marriage is.
