So when a couple has the marriage license, their DNA migrates between the two of them creating two chimeras? How does this DNA magically combine to create what we know as marriage?
Shirley, you're not confusing marriage with procreation again, are you?
Two precocious teens can, and frequently do, create a child without the benefit of marriage.
Another horrible argument from Kuntmary.
He also seems to have confused chimera with mutation. Quite odd for someone who claims to be intersex.

Weren’t those the same virgin daughters that he urged the crowd to rape before leaving town? In order to spare the visitors he had?

Should you have been aborted?

Marriage combines the DNA of the husband and wife within the marriage.
Speaking of DNA, if a genetic test shows the fetus has two sets, should it be aborted?

Additionally, a gay couple specifically deprives and child of one gender and more critically, denies the child at least one of the only natural parents we ever are allowed!
You deprive a child of a fully human parent. You are a monster mutation.

Marriage isn't about evolution. Marriage is about marriage.
Any two heterosexual people can (and do) have offspring all of the time.
Kimare's argument that a marriage certificate--a piece of paper--is needed to keep males from spreading their seed is ridiculous.
In the wild, in fact, it's more advantageous for the strongest male to spread his genes to as many different females as possible. This results in a greater number of stronger offspring.
So, his "one-man, one-woman" argument is not based on evolution. It's based on man-made morals and values that have no basis in science.
And ultimately, it has no impact on same-gender marriage; which is about legal equality.
1. Marriage isn't about evolution?

Really.

Marriage has nothing to do with evolutionary mating behavior?

Marriage has no correlation to procreation?

2. Of course heterosexuals have offspring outside of marriage.

To the immediate and devastating consequences for the child.

3. I made no such claim about a 'piece of paper'. Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. It does not need a 'piece of paper'.

4. I did not base my one man/one woman on evolution. I based it on the cross cultural 'constraint' of marriage. That means marriage restricts the drive of evolutionary mating behavior primarily for the sake of the child.

Social scientist surmise that marriage would not exist if it were not for the desire of humans to maintain contact with their child and pursue that child's best interests.

5. Legal equality is not possible, since gay couples are a direct defective contradiction to evolution's primary goal. Literally 'unmarriage'!

However, legal rights for gay couples are available through other means without imposing an imposter relationship on marriage.

What you need to do is prove that gay couples legally marrying has any negative effect on society, on other couples, and on their own children.
I don't need to prove anything, I'm for keeping the law as is. Your the one backing the suit, in America you have to prove your complaint, the defendant isn't required to prove innocence.

Can't do that? Then keep conflating marriage with apartheid and segregation.
Same sex marriage is gender segregation marriage. In other words, same sex marriage is gender apartheid marriage. Words have meanings, same sex means the opposite of gender diversity and integration.

The new Pope Francis (St Francis of Assisi) isn't going to be giving San Francisco (St Francis of Assisi) gays any slack. He's conservative and hardline and will be keeping an eye on what's going on around here......

http://www.businessinsider.com/pope-francis-c...
Bergoglio is seen an unwaveringly orthodox on matters of sexual morality, staunchly opposing abortion, same-sex marriage, and contraception. In 2010 he asserted that gay adoption is a form of discrimination against children.

yeah, Vallejo,
where the Christan help center had a gay prest that lived upstairs from the teen boys shelter, not teen girls, they had a men's section, and a woman and children's section, but why the teen boys in the same building as a gay priest?
