Inmates in St Louis have revealed that they were forced to fight each other in order to entertain prison guards.

Five guards were named in the suit and they were said to be the ones who forced inmates to fight in 'gladiator-style combat'.

Gee, and yet with ALL the numerous people supporting your side, not one of them has been able to establish 1 negative social impact, not 1 economic impact, not one health impact, and not one evolutionary consequence. NOT ONE.
Perhaps you can be the celebrity de jour for your kind. Please Fearless Contrarian, please present us with the Top 5 of these impacts and consequences.
Here are some secular arguments against homosexuality, which is a behavior and therefore can be learned and adopted through the process of indoctrination (e.g. in schools), acculturation and socialization. Scientists have yet to prove that deviant/unnatural sexual behavior is congenital.

Normalizing homosexual behavior by legalizing same-sex marriage will have profound social, economic, health, and evolutionary consequences the like of which the world has never seen. Social scientists prognosticate the following implications and trends:

Homosexuality as the new norm: Through the process of socialization, and suppression of dissent, the next generation will come to believe that homosexuality is as an acceptable orientation and lifestyle. With the approval and encouragement of parents, teachers, social scientists, political leaders, and prominent cultural figures in the media, a growing proportion of the young population will adopt a homosexual lifestyle in pace with rising acceptance levels. This positive trend will result in an explosion of infertile couples in the United States.

Economic downturn: A substantial increase in infertile couples will cause the natural population growth in the United Stated states to collapse. That will adversely affect important factors that depend on steady population growth such as national consumption, GDP, Social Security and Medicare. With a diminished labor force (i.e. future population) to demand goods and services, aggregate supply will fall, gross domestic output will decline or grow very slowly, and the prolonged economic contraction will push the unemployment rate to stubbornly high recessionary levels until there is a counteracting economic force. A similar economic story has already unfolded in developed countries with declining populations such as Italy, Russia and Spain.

Public health: The greater preponderance of homosexual couples will lead to a rapid epidemic of HIV infection and AIDS, which is presently at higher prevalence among homosexual men. This nationwide health crisis will place further strain on family and government budgets, crowd out funding for essential public services, and reduce future standard of living for millions of citizens.

Massive social disorientation: Demand for surrogate mothers and adoption services will skyrocket from a rising population of infertile couples. A large number of people will grow up without any knowledge or emotional connection with their biological parents or ancestry, leading to intense feelings of estrangement, abandonment, rejection and lack of identity. Furthermore, the high demand for babies will create perverse incentives for criminous organizations throughout the globe to illegally traffic, trade, and commoditize children for profit.

The LGBT movement would like you to believe that same-sex marriage is only an issue concerning two people who love each other, but that is far from the truth. Redefining and diminishing a centuries-old social structure, such as traditional marriage, is a grand social experiment that will likely have devastating long-term social, economic, and health outcomes.

Constantly bashing and blaming those that do have deeper beliefs then your puddle of crud theory is intolerance.
I've also never mentioned a puddle of crud theory either Ricky. Not once. Please stop accusing me of things I haven' done. But then, if you stuck with what I've actually said, rather than what you wish I had said, you wouldn't be able to play your persecution card.

Oh, and we will discard your "deeper" beliefs nonsense, since my beliefs are every bit as deep as yours. Stop pretending your beliefs make you special. They don't.

And finally, please feel free to support your accusation by demonstrating where I have "blamed" you for something. Oh, and let's see some of this "bashing" you refer to. Let's see some post numbers you big drama queen.

Four men sued the Boy Scouts of America and its largest sponsor, the Mormon Church, accusing both organizations of failing to protect them from sexual abuse by adult volunteers when they were children at scouting activities in Idaho.

Nasty little secrets the Mormon Church carries around.

Yes. It's a very simple concept really. You tell someone to enjoy a place, you must think that place exists.
That's not a simple concept, that's merely demonstrating what an idiot you are. Tell me Tizzy, WHY "must" I think that place exists if I mention it? Specifics.

There, now I've mentioned Peter Pan and Never Land, I'm still not under any obligation that I "must" think they exist.

Sometimes very little effort is needed to unearth the true character of a beast. One must simply shine a bright light on the beast and illuminate its essence. Sometimes under the heat of the hot burning light, the beast will self confess its evil ways, its barbaric nature, its pleasure in harming others.

Sometimes the truth is inconvenient.

LIE. It is the result of procreation, not the marriage. Marriage is a manmade institution which does not produce children. People produce children.
<quoted text>
COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT. It isn't required to be a result for ss couples.
<quoted text>
Which "fact" is that KiMare? The fact that ss couples aren't required to produce a baby together, or your fictional fact that marriages produce babies?
<quoted text>
Um, SCOTUS didn't address procreation since it was irrelevant to the issue being ruled on. Snicker smirk.
Procreation is the result of procreation???

This is only more proof that gays have no idea about the realities of marriage and family.

It is also evidence of another insane rant of Jonah.

Are you by any chance a postman/woman???
