<quoted text>On some people's list, religion is the number one reason to keep marriage between one man and one woman. On my list, religion is number 26.
Kant offered a way to decide if an act or policy is moral without using religion; ask 'What if everyone did it?'
That's stupid. What if everyone named their child "Brian"? What if everyone decided to live in NoHo? Or go to In-n-Out burger for lunch everyday?(Sometimes it seems that's the case.)

If making a policy or an act a universal law produces bad results then the policy or act is bad. If same sex marriage was universal it would mean an end to mankind or an end to monogamous marriage.
Reason 13 for keeping marriage male/female; Kant's Categorical Imperative.
And, stupid, allowing gay marriage is not the same as saying everybody has to get married to someone of the same sex. Also, people can, and do, reproduce without getting married.

<quoted text>I've found most same sex marriage supporters don't like to think about this subject. They prefer to feel they are good people who sympathize with gays and want same sex marriage because it feels good to support equal 'rights'. The thing is; homosexuals have equal rights under the same laws as everyone else. Homosexuals have always married, Oscar Wilde and Meredith Baxter are two examples. What would happen to married homosexuals if same sex marriage becomes law? Would that change encourage them to divorce?
Who knows? What caused your divorce?
Anyway, MOST marriages end in divorce.

Men and women don't have equal rights under current laws. Why are you against equal rights?

Would they sue their spouse for custody and tell the court the child's mother is a single parent and they have a same sex marriage so they should have custody?[/QOUTE]

Rose's Law:
Morons with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?"


[QUOTE who="Brian_G"]
Would courts find in sympathy with a mascot victim group because they want to make up for past inequity?
Once you stop making decisions based on your feelings and think about the consequences of a policy, you stop being a liberal and become a conservative.
Who knows, you dumb b!tch? Again, MOST marriages end in divorce. Were you sued for custody?
You are the one making decisions based on feelings, your hatred of gay people.

My argument has nothing to do with feelings.
A man has the right to marry a woman, a woman should have that same right.
A woman has the right to marry a man, a man should have that same right.

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Gay couples are a direct conflict and a absolute defect with the fundamental goal of evolution.
The closest gay unions can get to marriage is 'unmarriage'.

You call yourself a monster mutation. Do you think that makes you an absolute defect with the fundamental goal of evolution? Should you have been aborted? If not, why not?

1. Marriage can hardly be dumbed down to a legal contract.
But, legally, that's what it is.
KiMare wrote:
2. SCOTUS has already addressed it. Many times over the years.
"We are dealing here with legislation which involves one of the basic civil rights of man. Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race."- Skinner v Oklahoma
Skinner v OK wasn't a case about marriage. It was a case about using forced sterilization as a punishment for a crime. And, at the time, it was illegal in many states to have sex with someone you weren't married to. So, a right to procreate implied a right to marry. But, again, the case had nothing to do with marriage.
KiMare wrote:
"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival."- Loving v Virginia
Yeah, marriage is a right.
Why are you against equal rights?
KiMare wrote:
"Our Court has not recognized a fundamental right to marry that departs in any respect from the right defined by the US Supreme Court in cases like Skinner which acknowledged that marriage is "fundamental to the very existence and survival of the [human] race" because it is the primary institution supporting procreation and child-rearing (316 US at 541; see also Zablocki, 434 US 374; Griswold, 381 US 479). The binary nature of marriage—its inclusion of one woman and one man—reflects the biological fact that human procreation cannot be accomplished without the genetic contribution of both a male and a female.Marriage creates a supportive environment for procreation to occur and the resulting offspring to be nurtured. Although plaintiffs suggest that the connection between procreation and marriage has become anachronistic because of scientific advances in assisted reproduction technology, the fact remains that the vast majority of children are conceived naturally through sexual contact between a woman and a man."- Hernandez v Robels
And? Allowing gay marriage won't stop people from getting married and reproducing.
KiMare wrote:
"It is an institution in the maintenance of which in its purity the public is deeply interested, for it is the foundation of the family and of society, without which there would be neither civilization nor progress. "- Maynard v Hill
Purity? LOL. MOST marriages end in divorce.

That would make marriage no different than a friendship.
The government has no prevailing interest in any way protecting or providing for selective friendships.
Yes it would, friendship isn't a legal contract.

OK, I do apologize if I jumped in a bit there, but why did you claim that about blacks ruling the USA? What was that about?

Don’t ever feel sorry for people that spend their time working to try and deny rights to other Americans, and how hope they are forever tortured.

They have to blame someone, and they can only think in terms of race.
