That freedom, equality and justice is bad?
I disagree, most Americans disagree.
Freedom and equality within reason. Being gay today is just a fad that has gone wild, when you have to force and sue to get your way and be recognized is unamerican. I didn't put my life on the line for homosexuals to run this county. Your freedom and equality is not the same as most moral citizens.

You got it by forcing it down our throats, you had to beg, sue and force. You shouldn't feel that America agrees with it.

Oh look, Donny boy has a twin gay troll!
Honey, in no measure are SS couples equal to marriage.
At its most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
SS couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.
Wrong jerk, the essence of marriage is love. Look gay people won't tell you how to screw, stop telling them how to!

The majority of "lefties" in DC and the US are Christians.

However, what about Grover Norquist he is a Muslim Right Winger.

His wife is Muslim and has consulted for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Puts that no tax pledge in a different light as a way of the government being able to help American citizens and make them poorer.

Less taxes.

More money for the 1%(lots of oil-rich 1% Muslims).

Grover Norquist is Anti American, certainly.

Keep the government from helping American Citizens.

Turn them into poor slaves.

Your confusion is the result of your zealotry. You have two pigeonholes and I don't fit so you are baffled and angry.

Make a new pigeonhole and label it Frankie and you'll be fine. Relax. And stop worrying about my loyalty. It's not to you believe me. And it doesn't matter.

Because chances are they will have children. Never been a problem before.
Not a reason to excuse two guys who will NEVER procreate.
Should have could have might have. The fact remains as this procreation is not a requirement of marriage. IF a married couple does not have children they do not qualify for extra deductions or benefits reguardless of thier sexual make up. Keep your Jesus off their balls!

Ever been to Ohio?
LOL!!!
I lived there for over a year once on a transfer. Gray skies all year. From October 1st to May 29th you don't see the sun. The wet snow which comes down about every f-ing day in winter stays on the ground and accumulates until spring when the mounds which are pushed to the side by snowplows and shoves which have longed turned black due to the accumulation of soot finally melt. You freeze your ass off during this time not only due to the freaking absolutely bone chilling temperatures but also to the added benefit of the humidity which brings that cold clear through you no matter how many clothes, jackets and longjohns you manage to get on in the morning. Hit the road to icy streets covered in more salt than the Dead Sea which leaves your new car a rustbucket within 2 years.
Summer isn't much better. Humidity so thick and combined with the heat there's no use in taking a shower given you'll be covered in sweat the minute you put your first foot out of bed. Might as well lather yourself with Ivory soap then only to have the perspiration that follows rinse it off then repeat given you won't stop sweating until midnight that night. More bugs than a Malaysian rain forest as well and rain that leaves the place a muggy mess making sure your electricity bill tops $427 each month given you hopefully have an air conditioner.
Gotta love the inhabitants as well. Pasty fat white people whom all could easily pass as examples of the worst patrons WalMart could offer the world. Exotic to these people is taking a day to go to the annual fair only to down even more fried food which got them to be thunder clapping creations in the first place.
Trust me sunshine...been there...seen that. No jealousy here for someone throwing insults to me from 'Wooster, Ohio'...LOL!!!!!
Yes and it's better than Sacramento. And it's dopey ad hominem to say someone is wrong because Ohio sucks. But that's why I like you silly jackasses!

It doesn't need to b a requirement for it to be the basis upon which the state recognizes marriage. Hence the following:

From U.S. law.

“[T]he first purpose of matrimony, by the laws of nature and society, is procreation.” Baker v. Baker, 13 Cal. 87, 103 (1859).“he procreation of children under the shield and sanction of the law” is one of the “two principal ends of marriage.” Sharon v. Sharon, 75 Cal. 1 (1888)(quoting Stewart on Marriage and Divorce, sec. 103.“Procreation, if not the sole, is at least an important, reason for the existence of the marriage relation.” Davis v. Davis, 106 A. 644, 645 (N.J. Ch. Div. 1919).“The great end of matrimony is ... the procreation of a progeny having a legal title to maintenance by the father.” Laudo v. Laudo, 197 N.Y.S. 396, 397 (App. Div. 1919); Poe v. Gerstein, 517 F.2d 787, 796 (5th Cir. 1975)(“[P]rocreation of offspring could be considered one of the major purposes of marriage....”); Singer v. Hara, 522 P.2d 1187, 1195 (Wash. App. 1974)(“[M]arriage exists as a protected legal institution primarily because of societal values associated with the propagation of the human race.”); Baker v. Nelson, 191 N.W.2d 185, 186 (Minn. 1971), appeal dismissed for want of a substantial federal question, 409 U.S. 810 (1972)(“The institution of marriage as a union of man and woman, uniquely involving the procreation and rearing of children within a family, is as old as the book of Genesis.”); Heup v. Heup, 172 N.W.2d 334, 336 (Wis. 1969)(“Having children is a primary purpose of marriage.”); Zoglio v. Zoglio, 157 A.2d 627, 628 (D.C. App. 1960)(“One of the primary purposes of matrimony is procreation.”); Frost v. Frost, 181 N.Y.S.2d 562, 563 (Supr. Ct. New York Co. 1958)(discussing “one of the primary purposes of marriage, to wit, the procreation of the human species.”); Ramon v. Ramon, 34 N.Y.S. 2d 100, 108 (Fam. Ct. Div. Richmond Co. 1942)(“The procreation of off-spring under the natural law being the object of marriage, its permanency is the foundation of the social order.”); Stegienko v. Stegienko, 295 N.W. 252, 254 (Mich. 1940)(stating that “procreation of children is one of the important ends of matrimony”); Gard v. Gard, 169 N.W. 908, 912 (Mich. 1918)(“It has been said in many of the cases cited that one of the great purposes of marriage is procreation.”); Lyon v. Barney, 132 Ill. App. 45, 50 (1907)(“[T]he procreating of the human species is regarded, at least theoretically, as the primary purpose of marriage ...”); Grover v. Zook, 87 P.638, 639 (Wash. 1906)(“One of the most important functions of wedlock is the procreation of children.”); Adams v. Howerton, 486 F. Supp. 1119, 1124 (C.D. Cal. 1980), aff’d 673 F.2d 1036 (9th Cir. 1982)(observing that a “state has a compelling interest in encouraging and fostering procreation of the race”);
