Your bible also prohibits tattoos, eating ham or using a pigskin football, getting remarried after divorce, rounded haircuts, men missing testicals from entering a church, psychics, gossip, women speaking in the house of god, cursing at your parents, eating shellfish, working on the sabbath, and losing your virginity before marriage. If you want to follow your little book maybe you should focus on everything in it not just gays that want to be happy.
Jarboy, your ignorance is showing. You are confusing Christianity and Judaism to start with.

You also are confusing different types of Judaic law (Ceremonial, health and identity), at the expense of ignoring the profound distinction those Laws had on a single culture.

All of this to justify a evolutionary defect that seeks to equate the inherent harm, unhealthiness and demeaning nature of anal sex with natural, normal sex.

Do you see how stupid your denial has made you???

Smirk.

If you want a contract, go get a lawyer, you don't need to dumb down marriage to do that.

So you admit some is fiction? Most is opinion. It takes the views and opinions of many and expects people to follow like sheep. Logically that just sounds stupid. Why do I believe something because someone told me to? Really that's their basis? Think for yourselves people. Women couldn't vote that was wrong blacks couldn't do almost anything that was wrong interracial marriage was illegal that was wrong. We should all be treated as equals including gays.
So racism and gender abuse is a result of Christianity?

Do you see the hateful, ignorant bigotry in that 'logic'???

In 8000 years of human history, every single culture has had marriage.

In 8000 years of human history, not ONE SINGLE culture has embraced calling ss couples married from the start of the culture to end. Nowhere has that perversion established itself and spread.

In the extremely rare places where it did appear, it quickly disappeared.

Things don't look real good for you historically Jarboy...

Snicker.

It's the 1,138 rights that straight couples have that gay couples don't. It's not the word we are fighting for.
Get your own rights Jarboy, stop trying to impose an imposter relationship on marriage.

Even a child can tell the difference. Especially when one couple is mom and dad.

Have you ever noticed that the only ones who talk about incestuous and plural marriages are those who are against same-gender marriages?
And they call us depraved...
By the way, using your own ridiculous "slippery slope" argument, you can trace all of these issues back to the fact that the government got involved in marriage.
If the government had never given any special rights and protections to married couples in the first place then nobody--not gays, not bigamists, not anyone--would be seeking legal marriage.
We'd all just go to the church of our choice and get married.
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

The only prevailing interest a government has in marriage is to protect and support the sole safe birthplace of society's members.

The government has no prevailing interest in selectively supporting friendships.

Ss couples are a direct failure of the primary goal of evolution.

Government interest in the sole safe birthplace of societies members was to protect and provide for the wife and offspring.

Man up Jared, you don't need to deplete resources from women and children!

Smile.
Believe me I have paid my fair share of taxes in my life, most of which goes to education of which I don't have children so as far as that goes I and every other gay person without children are the ones paying into society's costs without reaping the benefits. Maybe you should worry about the unwed mothers that keep popping out kids to get bigger food stamp checks and all of the other fee crap we give people. They are the ones depleting our resources yes the mothers and children.

Anal sex really you went there? Over 70% of heterosexuals have tried anal sex so don't limit your hate toward gays.

Historically things evolve. I know you religious freaks don't like the theory of evolution that is based on science not some fictional story. Really an ark that held 2 of every animal for how long? Mathematically impossible for a boat to have been that large. Women had no rights at one time nor did blacks. So historically evolving as a society looks pretty damn good for me I would say. It's bigots and people that speak hatred like you that need to let others live their lives how they want not how you want them to. I could care less what you do sexually and with who so why are you so concerned with what I do sexually and with who? Curiosity?

So in your theory couples that never bear children aren't really married? If its just for mating and reproduction?

<quoted text>
Well, as I see it, the whole issue of SSM is based upon claims of Constitutional rights granting "Protections", although which specific rights, under the Constitution, weren't made exactly clear in the document. Vague cross-references to the 14th Amendment notwithstanding. But the inference is that gays aren't allowed to make selections, based upon violations of these rights. They claim that they should possess the rights to choose who they wish. But, the Mormons are also granted these same vague rights, except their religious rights are being violated by the same governmental overstepping. And the Mormons have actually shown that they consider this a violation of "Religious Freedom", more specifically granted under the C.
As per incestuous marriage, SSM arguments have clearly claimed that procreation is not enough to validate or invalidate marriage. Birth control being available, and medical procedures that can render sterility. Probably a bit of a ramble, as I am no Constitutional scholar, but there aren't too many of those in here, anyway.
As to the 1862 Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act, and Murphy v. Ramsey, I would counter that we used to have Sodomy Laws on the books and that these, also, were repealed. And that the same arguments that had these laws repealed could also serve the same purpose for the P and I crowd, eventually. Views change over time, and if we are to allow for changing to suit one, why not others? Upon what basis does the government stand, to justify meddling with marriage laws, at all?
Randy, I get a little frustrated when people seem to equate incest with homosexuality.

Our best scientists, medical professionals, psychiatrists, and legal minds have agreed that homosexuality is a normal, functional and legal lifestyle.

Moral arguments aside; our relationships, unlike incestuous ones, do not carry the risk of a medically needy or otherwise deformed offspring.

Comparing our relationships to incestuous relationships would be like comparing heterosexual relationships to bestiality.

It's insulting. In fact, I'd lay odds that if incestuous relationships were to be legalized, the VAST majority of them would be heterosexual in nature.

Bottom line, it's an unfair comparison.

Bigamy is a little different in that there are consenting, unrelated adults involved. And at some point down the road, bigamy may ver well be legalized. I don't know. I don't follow such things.

Having no interest in being involved with more than one person at a time, it's just not on my radar.

Whatever the case may be, anyone who believes that they are entitled to rights under the constitution may bring a case before the courts and have it heard.

Our community has done this. We have science, psychiatry, medicine, and the law backing us up. That's how our case for marriage equality has gotten so far.

It's not like we snuck it in the back door. These cases have been building for years. In 1970 a same-sex couple in Minnesotta attempted to obtain a marriage license. They were denied. Their case went before the Supreme Court, who dismissed the case in 1972.

That was 43 years ago. Our community has been fighting for nearly half a century to obtain rights and protections, so it's not happened over night. It may seem like it has, but it's not.

And you've got to stop engaging with all of these others who are so angry and hateful on here.

I understand their frustration. And goodness knows, I can dish it out pretty heavily myself (you may have seen some of my discussions with Kimare).

You seem like a reasonable person. Try to avoid confrontation with them. Your blood pressure isn't worth it...

Then your government needs to IMMEDIATELY stop issuing marriage licenses to couples who are not willing to sign a BINDING contract that their marriage WILL RESULT in children.

If these couples cannot or will not produce children, then the government should have the ability to annul such marriages--maybe even filing criminal charges against such couples break such laws.

Stop sterile and elderly couples from marrying. Stop couples who have no interest in children from marrying.

Any other marriage, as you say, is simply supporting friendships.

Jared, Kimare, I've decided, is a lost cause.

He has horrible ideas and beliefs about gays. None of them are based on firm and established science.

He bases his belief that marriage should be reserved only for those couples who are going to have children.

Elderly, sterile, and couples who don't want children SHOULD NOT be allowed to marry under his notion of "ideal marriage".

He would severely restrict people's rights.

He believes that gays should be cured and eventually eliminated from the face of the planet.

He is an extremist and frightening.

I believe he's unreachable at this point.

The only reason to engage him is to point out flaws in his arguments so that others can see them as well.

But don't think that you will ever have an impact on his ridiculous and ignorant comments. I've dealt with this twisted person for over two years.

Talking to him is futile.

Yes

there is good news however, now that they have.... come out of the closet... so to speak, the foundation of their belief is plainly visible to all.

They are spreading the word, and we have heard the word.... and the word is HATE

and people are leaving their churches in droves
