Good. Here is some evolutionary science.
At its most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
.........
So, you believe that evolution requires legal restraints on mating behaviors? And you believe that the sole purpose of marriage is to create that restriction, even though married people can and do mate in a variety of ways with a variety of people, or not at all?

Too funny. I'd love to see you actually try to back that one up.

I'm not sure you understand that evolution is.

And now back to the topic - gay folks are still legally married and marrying in California, and the federal government recognizes each of those marriages.

Learn to face reality.

I didn't state my beliefs. I stated a constraint that every society in human history has practiced. In fact, social scientists assert it has been present for ten million years.

Nor did I ever state it is the 'sole' purpose of marriage. It is the most basic essence however. Scientists also assert marriage would not exist we're it not for children.

All of this simply and clearly makes your 'back to the topic' a fallacy. Perhaps you want to switch from science to religion to make your point???

Lol.

It doesnít matter if you state your beliefs or not, your disdain for science, your miscomprehending of evolutionary process, and your insistence that marriage ( which only exists in Humans as a legal contract and does not exist in the rest of the animal kingdom at all ) makes it obvious.

Marriage only exists as a legal contract, and I can prove beyond any possible doubt that same sex couples are married.

That is a fact, that you have your eyes tightly closed to.

When Gay couples who love each other exclusively want to be married and accepted in society, they should be respected and receive the same benefits that straight married couples have. It is now happening and I am in support of the laws which are allowing it to happen.
In the past loving commited gay couples had to stay in the closet to avoid being discriminated against. That was wrong!

In more and more states and nations around the country that is becoming true.

Donít lose heart, there are many of us heterosexuals that fight for equal rights for our fellow Americans.

Those left brooding over ancient dogma are losing power, respect and any credibility.

Marriage describes a distinct relationship in society. SS couples are not the same. They have every right and ability to establish their own identity and rights.

Society is not as receptive as you may want or think. Gays are still finding ways to challenge society for example the two queers that were making out in the back seat of a private taxi cab for example, now the are suing the cab company becaus the driver kicked them out of the cab. The homos knew what they were planning and that was a law suit for recognition. lol that is just the begining

You're lying to yourself. we need faith as a navigational aid. Everyone has faith in someone or something; it just might not necessarily be God. You believe in history, what a history book says a person said. You didn't hear that person hundreds of years ago say that and in what context, but you have faith that the authors of that history wrote it correctly for your explanation of that. You have faith.

But it's not the most on going important issue going on today. Why is it such a passion of yours? Thousands of Californians are losing their health care because of your vote.

Your Atheist Leader, Mikey Weinstein has struck again,

This man is a public enemy and a deviant of the lowest order.

He's gone after every religious symbol in the U.S. military.

Weinstein is now being used by Obama to advise all branches of the military on "religious tolerance."

One of his policies includes court-martialing military chaplains who share the Christian gospel during spiritual counseling sessions.

The Air Force Academy has just announced that it will now be optional for cadets to recite the words "So help me God" at the end of its honor oath.

I don't care if you're an atheist or an agnostic. That's your right.

But I really resent these people stepping on the hearts and souls of people who believe in God, especially those who believe in Jesus Christ.

It's so offensive, because George Washington took the oath as our first president and said the words, "So help me God."

Why does the American military now turn to a twisted sister like Mikey Weinstein and ask this piece of garbage whether or not they can say "God" in a military chapel?

This would stop if we had a truly God-fearing president.

This one doesn't even fake it.

For you it isnít the most important, it is for them, and I support them. And you donít have enough unbiased information to talk about your other concern.

I know of thousands that are getting health care for the first time because of my vote.

Turn off Faux News and find out what is really happening.
