<quoted text>So discuss then. Why does society need men to marry other men/women to marry other women? What is this compelling urge?
So we too can be recognized as family's in society and share the same rights and benefits.

<quoted text>Why does "marriage" exist in the first place? Why did it develop throughout time and place as virtually an exclusive relationship of either one man/husband one wife, or one man many wives?

Just ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, please. Thank you.
You didn't answer mine. Stop answering questions with questions. Is marriage about sex or religion???????

Still waiting???

Standing by ready to point out the millions of current marriages where procreation is not possible and many cases where even sex is not possible in the normal sense, and that religion is also not required as any part of a marriage, I have been to many where no religion is referred to in any way at all, including more than one of my children’s marriages.

Sad to say I have not yet been to a same sex marriage ceremony, but would certainly go if invited.

I think he means ready to stand by once the other idiot decides which platform he is standing on about marriage so we can knock him down.

Much like the attempt we make to shed light on Christianity as the unhealthy, immoral and anti-American establishment it is.
We have been quite successful at removing their bad influence from our schools and away from our innocent children that these brainwashers prey upon.
Our job has become easier lately as their hatred and immorality have been brought to the forefront as they try and deny other Americans equal rights under US law. The fight continues and people are leaving their churches in droves.
Hating Christians like you do is anti-American.

Don't try justifying what you do! You blame your problems on your parents, and where you are today! I had issues when I was young too, well younger, and I don't let anything define me! You're in your 40s now you should be able to let go, and do something with your life that's more honorable than degrating your body!

We know for a fact that ability or intent to procreate is not a requirement for a marriage license

We know for a fact that the ability or intent to have sex of any specific kind or any at all for that matter is not a requirement for a marriage license

We know for a fact that religion is not any kind of requirement for a marriage license.

I am standing by to educate.

I also happen to know I am dealing with people that believe in the “golden rule” that you treat others the way you want to be treated. So I will happily oblige them and treat them exactly how they treat others.

A NONUBUSSIVE HOME?! Are you kidding me? I WAS ABUSED! From the age of 9 until I was 13 until I was able to beat the shit out of my step dad. That m0ther sucker broke my nose 3 times, broke my arm, almost ripped my ear off throwing me through a solid hard wood door, oh yeah but let me tell you it toughened me up. From looking at me you wouldn't know I can throw down like a man because I'm only 5'7'' and 130 lbs, but let me tell you I have yet to find someone who can beat my a$$! I brutely beat the hell out of guys and girls who were twice my size, and that earns you respect!

So, what you're saying is that you sometimes do manly things and that you engage in premarital sex? I'm pretty sure those things are denounced in the scripture that you like to hurl at gays.
Did I ever say that I was a saint? No, I don't live my life directly by the bible, I just know for a fact that it says in there a man shall not lie with another man, so that is why I throw it out there!

California:

The goal should be to prevent CEQA from being abused by local governments, agricultural land owners, business rivals and labor unions to block or delay projects they don't like for reasons that may have nothing to do with concerns about the effects on air, water, wildlife and residents' quality of life.

Perhaps you'd do better to try and convince him same sex marriage is a good thing, rather than to "knock him down".

Wow! That's the way your marriage works Jizzy, but not most others.

P.S. How much does your old lady charge you?

I don't think so. He says marriage is closely related to procreation he doesn't say it's a requirement. That's Big D's straw man.

Big D attempts a straw man so he can argue against religion instead of the other poster's position on marriage equality.

<quoted text>Hey Frank, when you where married, what would you have done if your wife withheld sex for a year? You may not like it Frank, but the simple fact is this, we are all prostitutes. We all sell our services for money. Some jobs are legal some are not. The simple fact is we are all prostitutes, we have a service that we charge for. Legality of prostitution is all about location, location, location. In parts of Nevada, its legal. In parts of Europe, its legal.
When I was married my wife liked sex with me as much as I liked it with her. As it should be. Sorry for you it's not.
