Are not the "body parts" sufficient?
No.
Our rights should not depend on what's in our underwear.

Is it not the joining of certain "body parts" and the natural result, that provides the biological foundation to marriage?
<quoted text>
Appealing to biology is logical though.

"Sense" that you wish to acknowledge, and doesn't undermine your position....no.
Perhaps you can answer the questions I posed.
If its the consensus of society that marriage is simply a union of two consenting adults, there's no need to prohibit any two person, consenting adult, union, including blood relatives. Why should it matter who marries who, or who can't marry who?
I'll take that to mean you can't come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.
Pietro Armando wrote:
Your argument seems to be no restriction, except possible number of participants, among consenting adults.
If that is so, why bother licensing marriage at all?
Non sequitur.

Many relationships are 'equal' in love. That does not make them marriage.
I agree that gays have every right and opportunity to purse legitimate rights and an identity for their relationship. That is their responsibility. It is not legitimate to impose an imposter relationship on marriage.
As to children, two distinctions.
1. Children in the natural home of their biological parents are at a significant advantage over ANY default setting. That setting, or as close as possible should always be the primary pursuit of society.
2. A ss couple ALWAYS deprives a child of one parental role. To do so deliberately should be criminal. It is narcissistically diabolical.
What if one of the parents is a monster?
BTW Jesus had two dads.

That lack of ability within orientation is a clear indication of a defect.
Speaking of defects, what about chimerism? LOL!
Chimerism is an rare DISORDER.

Don't you hate god for being so sloppy when making you?

That's funny and you forget that this is a action of man not God. I have read where you are minister but you blame God for everything you can.

From your source...
"We are left with an undeniable evolutionary puzzle: What maintains the underlying genetic propensity for homosexuality, whatever its specific manifestations? Unlike most mystery stories, in which the case is typically solved at the finish, this one has no ending: We simply do not know."
--------
The author goes on to describe various POSSIBLE reasons for homosexuality. I am satisfied with one of his conclusions...
"Another question (also yet unanswered) is why should we bother to find out."
-------
We exist. We have always existed. There is no reason to believe that we will someday not exist. And since our presence has no negative impact on society--other than to frighten certain religious zealots--the question of "how" or "why" we exist is ridiculous.
As I've said multiple times, asking "why are there gays" is about as important as asking "why are there blondes".
You keep trying to find an answer to a question that doesn't need to be asked.
So your source has no answers and says nothing about homosexuality being maladaptive.
Better luck next time...
Again, with the 'scared" or "frightened" schtick. Geez, do you really think that we are frightened? That's so silly, it's laughable, in a sad sort of way. About as scared of you as any of us are, when telling children not to play with matches...
Sorry, Boo-Boo, but you're not scary little spookies.

It takes more than you, to dismiss valid differentiations. Sorry, Chongo. Rational has, again, been delivered.
You are the non sequitur. You do not follow. Not your fault that you cannot digest logic.

I'm sure that when he reads your posts, he is at ease with all things. After all, you certainly make any faults that he may posses seem small.

Native on the gay cult Christian forum stated NoHo is a minister. It is funny and if you get a chance you need to read some of the ludicrous posts Native has made concern NoHo husband's who fathered her children. I have laughed about it.

I agree all the special rights and privileges the homosexuals are demanding will cause so many problems but most heterosexuals have no idea. The homosexuals are filling 1000's of cases against churches, privately owned businesses and any organization to insure they cult gains the fear factor in society.

You know, if your race could conduct itself with all due propriety, we wouldn't have to have this conversation. Why don't you guys behave like civilized people? Why must the negroes commit more crimes than others, and have their race omitted from the news? It leaves us at the mercy of the undesirables. Why must we pretend to not know?
