Right on.
I had some ugly things I partook in my past. Purposely searched out gay bars to beat up gays in my early 20's back in 1982 -'84. Howled at Sam Kineson's gay jokes. Etc. Looking back all I see is a waste of time and I did get a chance to hear that same joke track 2 years ago only to think the jokes on homosexuals fell flat.
I don't interact with gays albeit I know a few. Nowadays I really don't discern the difference or care to. I give a shit less is John is holding Ted's hand at Sunday morning's farmers market and the like.
I wish you could convey to these gay bashers and those seriously opposed to gays marrying what a complete waste of time and effort it is. Crap....saving the endangered Mongolian earthworm holds more value than getting all twisted about someone elses personal life because they happen to be gay.
That's funny. My best friend all through elementary school and high school is gay. I've lived around them all my life. Just had a lesbian co-worker tell my wife she'd marry me.

Go figure...

Honestly, if siblings want to marry, so be it. It happens anyways. It is illegal, however, because of the clear health problems that can be passed down to the child through incestuous intercourse. There are no such threats in gay marriage.
I feel you are arguing from this conservative, "the sacred definition of marriage" bullshit that is getting old. Times change--get over it.
I 'feel'?

He brings up the logical sequence of dumbing down the definition of marriage to 'two committed people'.

That opens up,'any two?' And 'why just two'?

Where did religion show up in his comment???

I agree. What they do in the bedroom is their business. Wouldn't it make the active haters gay for being so interested in gay peoples affairs? Gayception?
I was born in 88, so by the time I was in high school, gays were somewhat accepted. At least in southern california where I grew up. I mean, we used to make fun of them a lot, but quickly died out by college.
You cannot equate ss couple to marriage without equating the most intimate physical act.

Homosexuals are not 'in their bedrooms' with their demands.

I did answer your question indirectly: I don't care. Polygamy is illegal, yet Mormons do it. Legal or not, lines drawn or not, it will get crossed by those who seriously believe in it. As I fear your comprehension may be low, I will reiterate- I DON'T CARE. Answering the same question semantically altered is getting tiring. Let me phrase it bluntly, screw your ancient definition of marriage.
I care about more than just gays.

Why do you discriminate?

And why the disdain for historical cross cultural practices? Is that all encompassing???

I call you on a lie, and you ignore it and spew another lie.
I didn't misuse scripture as you asserted, I quoted a passage about the end times. And I postulated about how such a unnatural event could occur in the context of our culture.
When we barbarically mangle marriage and motherhood at the expense of children, and now seek to diminish and downgrade the bonds between mother and father and child so ss couples can 'equate', is it not logical that children will respond at the diminished level society sets? And that an assault on that most basic relationship will affect every single other relationship???
As I have stated from the beginning. You cannot make a fundamental change in a natural relationship without monumental impacts. Your claim that there are no negative is simply a diabolical lie.
Yeah, right... Except that if there were such problems with children of gay parents, you would expect that thee would be clear examples on a large scale indicating such. As I posted, there are between 6,000,000 and 14,000,000 children being raised by same-sex or gay couples or parents. And to my knowledge none of these children have risen up and murdered their parents--"a logical response", as you called it.

Your posts on this issue is nothing more than printed flatulence.

I didn't limit it to ss couples with children.

Your numbers are a ridiculous lie.

Greed caused it...Use to be a man could work 40 hours and support a family real well. Today both man and women have to work 40-50-60 hours and barely get by..THAT RIPS FAMILIES APART.

Blame the greedy rich...

You are quite wrong, families today are families that actively want to be together, that work on their marriages with the knowledge that breaking a family up is not a difficult thing to do.

People actively work on their relationships, they don’t depend on law or some fairy tale belief system to keep them together.

You are looking at the wrong statistics.

I understand that as someone that wants to censor marriages this is difficult for you to understand, but it is true all the same.

As there has been no military conscription for some time now, I seriously doubt what you are saying is true. If there were a draft today, I doubt they would be exempt.

Right now we are all exempt, as there is no conscription

That was then, this is now, welcome to..... today

Under current law, all male U.S. citizens are required to register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. In addition, non-U.S.-citizen males between the ages of 18 and 25 (inclusive) living in the United States must register. This includes permanent residents (holders of Green Cards), refugees, asylees, and illegal immigrants.

Of course it began a long time ago.

The last two times the Courts intervened in marriage and family: no fault divorce and abortion.
