LOL. Silliest argument yet. "Gender integration and segregation"? REALLY? Seriously?
PROVE that same sex marriages are harmful to straight folks. Prove that it harms society. Prove that it would not be beneficial to the gay couples that choose it. Prove that marriages does not provide emotional and financial stability to the elderly - gay or not. Prove that having married parents is harmful to children.
If this is the best you can do, why bother?
No, it is up to you to prove that it beneficial to society. It is up to you to prove that it does provide emotional and financial stability to the elderly, LOL. We have provided links to studies that have clearly shown that children of gay couples suffer more from maladjustment than other children. Your side just ignores all the evidence, as it's inconvenient to your getting what you want. This whole world is a mess, and this is part of the problem, libertines wanting what they want, when they want it, regardless of the results. Go be gay, by all means, just don't expect us, the vast majority, to smile, and nod approvingly, at your pretense that nothing is wrong with it.

<quoted text>What do you find hilarious about gender segregation of marriage?
Until the 21st Century, all cultures had gender diversity marriage. Now we have gender apartheid marriage; that's not funny in the least.
What is hilarious is that the verbosity of your posts. You seem to have a need to sound intelligent. You're also using words with negative connotation just for the sake of throwing in negative spin. And it makes you seem really dumb. Or can you explain how permitting a small portion of the population access to marriage is "gender apartheid?"

In all honesty I don't expect an explanation. You generally aren't capable of giving one.

Gender diversity? If you count only male and female you're limited to two genders. If you include intersex, gays, lesbians, transgenders, and bisexuals you've got 5 more. That is diversity.

It says that god said, "Let there be light". Then in the next couple of verses, there was night and day. Then plants. Night and day and plants before there is a sun (somewhere around Genesis 1:16). Absurd.
God made light first, so light was what first existed. Then plants and animals. Now it said the sun was created after the 7 day cycle was mentioned, it is not related. And do you speak to believers much? You must know a fair amount of people within the church to recall people who say they want to save marriage but yet divorce. How were you raised?

So, it's not all literally true? Fine.
I just don't get why so many Christians insist everything in the buy-bull is literally true when so much of it is clearly absurd.
Making up sights out of your imagination? Everything the bible says is true, but you have no reason to believe that the bible means he saw the world from mountains, as it doesn't mean that, you are very assuming.

Did you learn THAT from Jane Dough, too?
So if Prop 8 is overturned, does that mean polygamy will be legal in California? Of course not. It's a completely seperate issue. Prop 8 has NOTHING to do with polygamy.
You support having sex with all! Of course you do! Thats what gay marriage is really about! And mikey is also very rebellious to the sciptures by not supporting monogamy.

Mike was being sarcastic. Of course he knew the definition of "red herring", just like the rest of us.
Did he really? Its difficult to expect someone who is not honest with God and allows polygamy against the bible to be honest with us. Maybe he pretended to know, and was pretending to be sarcastic, to cover his ignorance.

Er, I'm the wicked pagan, and I agree with Mikey, polygamy is another facet of the issue. We are not allowed to use God, or Christianity, in this forum, it has been targeted by the resident self-appointed arbiters of moral correctness. The poofs. They have decided to act as our moral compasses, and deny any reasons to deprive them of their pet project, namely the undermining of moral fiber.
Why do you bother supporting anti homosexuality but yet reject monogamy? Is it because you don't support your God lorally like a good believer and just to gain a little pride in yourself? You reject the branches you came from! What a rebellious child of God! I accept and loyally fight for Gods name on all fronts, and yet you are too lazy for that! What does proverbs say about lazy men? Were you lazy as a child as well?

They are also the self appointed thread judge, jury and police. Anything that threatens their dogma is "off topic". Continued controversy causes banning.
Notice the extreme hypocrisy when alternate forms of marriage other than same sex are even mentioned.
Unfortunately these clowns give same sex marriage a bad rap. I don't see the pressing need for it but I also don't see much harm. The only harm I see in it is the stupid dishonest zealotry demonstrated by these assholes like Rose_NoHo.
And yet you behave like a wicked hevean! You don't go against all their hypocracy and show them as a believer should how one ought ot behave by actually going against it! You are a traitor to the church, and can't accept it to fight on all sides! You are your own censor, appointing yourself saying what you should and shouldn't support! Do you believe the silly doctrines of your little pulpit claiming you are God, cherrypicking the verse that says we are one with God?

So you want to be loved, but yet you don't want to love? Is that what you are saying? How self absorbed!

Actually rose, Hudson did it by accident when "he" claimed that the penguin book promoted homosexuality. That claim actually came from the source he was using. But you already knew that, so one can assume you tried to just jump in there and accuse!
