I just stated a truth, that Christianity helped to destroy Rome. Not saying what, if anything, should or shouldn't have been done about it.
No, Catholics simply converted Rome when the barbians were already attacking it. Rome lost its empire from the start due to the barbians and were therefore prone to conversion. You know more than you do!

Limiting the number of husbands a woman has seems to me just as much an infringement as limiting the gender of whom that woman can marry.
You are now rebelling against the Scriptures now! What a rebellious boy you are! The bible clearly states that a man only needs one wife, and yet you are going against it! You might as well support homosexuality, you unpatriotic little worm!

I believe the person who said you are divorced, not you.
You are a vile person, and I often find the "save marriage" folks are divorced.
And your "argument" in this post makes no sense. Even if I were the biggest lair on earth, that wouldn't be a good reason to deny US citizens basic, equal, human rights, you dumb b1tch.
It makes too much sense! The people who are divorces are people who don't stick to the word properly, just like rebellious mikey!

You stupid sow, apartheid is imposed. Two people of the same sex deciding to marry is no more "apartheid" than two members of the same race deciding to get married. Should people be forced to marry someone of a different race so we have integrated marriages?
Nobody is talking about getting rid of male/female marriages.
2 people of the same race can be meant for each other(Bit cliche, but God made it this way), while the same sex isn't.

When you are in love, dummy, sex is part of that love.
Sex is one way my bf and I show we love each other. A very important way. Gifts, cooking dinner together, saying "I love you", and sending texts with smiley faces all have their places, but sex stands out. But you can't understand what I'm talking about until you have sex.
What do you mean by "pic"? All I see is some sort of leg. Sex is not a part of love, sex is an expression of love. And why do you need sex? Can't you show it with openness and with words? Do you feel he doesn't really love you?

Stupid, homosexuality is an orientation. Gay men need another man emotionally as well as physically like a straight man needs a woman emotionally as well as physically. Why the smeg do you think the whole gay marriage issue exists?
I don't find another man equal to me soothing, or attractive emotionally. I don't need men! How stupid!

LOL. Silliest argument yet. "Gender integration and segregation"? REALLY? Seriously?
PROVE that same sex marriages are harmful to straight folks. Prove that it harms society. Prove that it would not be beneficial to the gay couples that choose it. Prove that marriages does not provide emotional and financial stability to the elderly - gay or not. Prove that having married parents is harmful to children.
If this is the best you can do, why bother?
No, it is up to you to prove that it beneficial to society. It is up to you to prove that it does provide emotional and financial stability to the elderly, LOL. We have provided links to studies that have clearly shown that children of gay couples suffer more from maladjustment than other children. Your side just ignores all the evidence, as it's inconvenient to your getting what you want. This whole world is a mess, and this is part of the problem, libertines wanting what they want, when they want it, regardless of the results. Go be gay, by all means, just don't expect us, the vast majority, to smile, and nod approvingly, at your pretense that nothing is wrong with it.

<quoted text>What do you find hilarious about gender segregation of marriage?
Until the 21st Century, all cultures had gender diversity marriage. Now we have gender apartheid marriage; that's not funny in the least.
What is hilarious is that the verbosity of your posts. You seem to have a need to sound intelligent. You're also using words with negative connotation just for the sake of throwing in negative spin. And it makes you seem really dumb. Or can you explain how permitting a small portion of the population access to marriage is "gender apartheid?"

In all honesty I don't expect an explanation. You generally aren't capable of giving one.

Gender diversity? If you count only male and female you're limited to two genders. If you include intersex, gays, lesbians, transgenders, and bisexuals you've got 5 more. That is diversity.

It says that god said, "Let there be light". Then in the next couple of verses, there was night and day. Then plants. Night and day and plants before there is a sun (somewhere around Genesis 1:16). Absurd.
God made light first, so light was what first existed. Then plants and animals. Now it said the sun was created after the 7 day cycle was mentioned, it is not related. And do you speak to believers much? You must know a fair amount of people within the church to recall people who say they want to save marriage but yet divorce. How were you raised?
