You trying to prove that being gay is genetic, and that this is a good reason to deny gay folks equality under the law?
No it is the best reason to allow them to marry so they do not marry atraights and pass on the genetic trait.

Now, I'm no genetic expert--not at all--but even I know that it's VERY difficult to wipe out a certain genetic trait.

Genes can be passed along for several generations before they reappear again.

In my family, there is only one left-handed person. There are a couple of red headed people. The generation prior to them had no left-handed or red headed people in it. Somehow these genetic traits lay dormant for one generation before popping back up.

If homosexuality is a genetic trait, a straight couple can pass it along to their offspring, who may not have gay children or grand children. But then a great grandchild may turn out gay.

Here's the thing... Gay people do not pose a threat to society. We have not impacted the world's population. Heterosexual marriages, in those countries or states that allow same-gender marriage, have not been impacted. Heterosexuals and homosexuals work, play, worship, etc. alongside one another without any problems.

I don't understand why it is that you guys are so afraid of us--why you want us to disappear.

As long as the gay couple is of the opposite sex, there is a valid state interest in that relationship, as there would be in other adult opposite sex relationships in regard to marriage. Remove one sex, replace it with a duplicate of the remaining sex, and the state interest is also removed.
No it isn't. Do you really think the ONLY reason the State has an interest in marriage is procreation??? Really? No other reasons?

I heard steve herfert has been hiding out from the several residents of West Covina and several newspaper reporters from the Los Angeles Times newspaper.

Since the LOS ANGELES TIMES REPORTERS are the only HONEST newspaper left in the local area that can be trusted no the be a pile of lying dogs in bed with racists members of local city councils like Glendora, California.

Keep running you lying racists dog, Steve Herfert from West Covina, California city council. Do yourself a favor Steve Herfert step down from the city council since your a worthless pieces of dung.

Ken Herman from tghe Glendora, California city council finally had to sell his home in Glendora and leave the state of California.

The difference from you and I is I never was in the closet. I'm a male and have a female wife, but with no interest in constantly talking or doing the nasty things you keep thinking about, being in love is more then sex sex and sex. Same applies to gay couples, you really should seek some help for your sex addiction. It's not healthy.

Hopefully you'll be able to deal with your homosexuality when you feel comfortable coming out. In the mean time, thanks for help in endorsing it.

The average male homosexual consumes 22.68lbs of fecal matter on an annual basis, rather sickenging if you ask me.

You're kidding, right? Have you listened to just about every rap song ever to come out? It's about sex and drugs and killing. And the rock songs of the 70's and 80's was about having sex with everybody.

Remember movies like "Porky's"? There are many more movies that show explicit heterosexual sex scenes than ones that show gay sex scenes.

And if you haven't gone to a Mardi Gras celebration or a Carnival celebration, you probably haven't seen all of the heterosexual debauchery that goes on.

Maybe you haven't seen all of the sex on TV--heterosexual women especially wearing revealing dresses, pushing up their boobs, sticking out their butts, etc...

The gay community HARDLY has the market cornered on sexual acting out.

And finally, as a gay man, I have never done anything "nasty". I am much more interested in love--finding the right guy and having a relationship. And most of the guys I know are pretty laid back--not acting out like you say.

Should the state require a genetic test, or statement of orientation prior to issuance of a marriage license? Should it prohibit people from marrying outside their orientation?

Its been said that marriage developed as a means of dealing with the products, children, of the make female union. If human reproduction wasn't sexual, why would it matter who married who? Why prohibit siblings from marrying? Why does it matter to the state that men marry men/women marry women?

Yup, you're obviously gay also. If someone keeps calling you out on it, there's usually a good reason. I don't change my name, unlike you. How many different names do you use? A bunch, I'm sure. All you closet cases love to hide your true self. It's ok for you to endorse homosexuality but not good enough for you to admit you're also gay. You're sad and pathetic.

The pursuit of understanding the cause of homosexuality has not ended. Moreover, if scientists and medical professionals don't know the cause, how can they determine it is not a disorder?
As a 'professional' social worker, you spout this stupidity? Scary sad.
The fact is, scientists are very close to validating that homosexuality is a epi-marker mistake. A defect.
Try your gay twirl somewhere else liar.

I can see you are skilled in the art of the Non-sequitur. We dog lovers never butcher and eat our four footed canine Honeys', but millions of our innocent animal friends are butchered and eaten by Homosexual Africans and non-Homosexual Africans and Homosexual and non-Homosexual non-Africans without their ever having given their "informed consent" for them to do so. Let's get back on track. The subject is marriage equality for we dog lovers in accordance with the Republican's infamous 14th Amendment to the Constitution.

Typical fundie.
Sorry Ronald, dogs have standards.
