You need to try and grasp the ideas in a post before replying with your stock LGBT cliches, fella.
First, how you compare homosexuality to skin color, etc., is a mystery. Some people choose to live the homosexual lifestyle, others don't. No one is born with a instinct to have anal sex. Anal sex is just the thing people with no desire for to vaginal/penis intercourse substitute.
Wrong. Most men who have anal sex have a vagina an inch away, and also engage in vaginal/penis intercourse. Sometimes in the same session..

Prof Marvel wrote:
In other words, stop confusing the gay gene with homosexual behavior -- they're not the same thing.
The Bible's prohibition was against the behavior, not the state of being homosexual which it says nothing about.
Indeed, it is was only when homosexual sex became legal that the HIV-AIDS epidemic and the contamination of our blood supply happened. Thus, it's perfectly reasonable to assume the admonitions in the Bible against homosexual sex prevented a similar epidemic and perhaps the utter extinction of humankind.
You are such a drama queen!
Prof Marvel wrote:
Today, even 30 years after universal safe sex education gay males remain more than 65% of all new HIV-AIDS cases. Obviously, there is something very lethal about your sex practices, something the Bible help put a stop to.
And here I'd like to ask a question:
If you could go back in history an re-write the Bible so that male-to-male sex is endorsed instead of prohibited, would you do it?
Yes.

I'm sorry RnL has a problem recognizing the importance of gender differences. It seems many same sex marriage supporters are likely to make hyperbolic statements (OFTEN ALL CAPS)
Actually, it's you fundies who tend to use the all caps...

Judges apply law, they aren't supposed to write law. The problem is, your judge didn't apply law as applied by precedent, he found for a mascot victim group instead of applying the law impartially for all.

It is so cute when a homosexual projects a heterosexual to be like them, abnormal. Opposites or inverses are never the same no matter how hard you try to humiliate, degrade, or defame the better half.
The effort is indeed noted.

2. I didn't even know these male member suits and hats existed until Prof Marvel started going on and on about them.

The discussion continues to evolve, which you of course don't like because defending same-sex marriage and all its ramifications is like the little Dutch Boy at the dikes (no pun) trying to plug all the leaks.
Also, homosexuality is absolutely prohibited in the Bible as I've shown and as anyone with a brain knows.
In other words, a child who elects to become an homosexual must by extension become an atheist. This explains the penis suits and phallic symbols we see during your gay "pride" parades. These symbols have nothing to do with pride and everything to do with sex cultism.
Which is what you are -- a garden variety sex cult.
Fortunately, this is America, and your Buybull is trumped by our Constitution EVERY TIME.

You create an argument over something YOU made up (sex cult)!

Look at section two where it explicitly recognizes male and female as unequal, just as it recognizes adult and child or citizen and non-citizen as unequal. There is no gender equality right; the ERA failed. We've already won this, back in the '70s. Where just waiting for the left to catch up.

Because marriage is defined as one man and one woman; gender differences are real. Only a woman can be a wife and only a man can be a husband. Only a woman can be a mother and only a man can be a father. Law recognizes the facts of life.

Wanna know what is REALLY telling about Prof Dipshit's views? There are WAY more women dressed as vaginas in the pride parades than men in penis suits. I think seeing a man in a penis suit sends him into fits of homosexual panic... very typical of closet queens.

If you don't think that a "thought" process that involves people believing that things like tigers, cows, and crocs all coexisted and got along, eating veggies as they sang campfire songs, until a snake sweet-talked a naked, white woman in the jungle into eating an apple isn't a joke...I question your intelligence as well as your sense of humor.

No. Those are facts. You know, those things you steer clear fromů. Like vaginas?

I stated a percentage of cases being overturned. beibg that I am only considering percentages, the quantity of cases is totally immaterial. Whether it is is 7 of 9 cases or 76 out of 100 cases, over 75% is a very high overturn rate on appealed cases. The Supreme Court has also not yet stated that it would not hear the California case.
You do realize that's a good thing right? If the Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality it's not just legal in California but the entire USA. Just like Loving v Virginia all over again.

The ERA would have been redundant, the 14th Amendment already gives citizens equal protection.
And the fact you feel denying people equal rights is a "win" says a lot about you.

That is circular BS. Give us an actual difference between men and women, and tell us why that difference is important enough to deny men and women equal rights.

Dude, if you don't know why are you pretending to know?

You're promoting a lifestyle a Christian would have to become a Hindu to follow yet you don't know why anyone would do this.

What kind of sense does that make, fella?

You either obey law and act morally or you don't. We are nuanced enough to want homosexuals treated like everyone else, not pandered to as a mascot victim group.
