Even more idiotic is accusing me of hatred because I cited a scientific fact.
Only you could too off that stupidity by accusing me of avoiding debate when you just got done brushing off several issues because you have no argument.
Jarboy, go back to your video games and gay porn. You clearly are not ready for adult discussion.

The hatred is obvious

we have watched you twist into a pretzel trying to make your procreation argument apply to same sex couples, but not to vets with injuries that keep them from procreating, or older couples without the ability to procreate, or even younger couples that choose not to have children.

You have twisted and squirmed and done backflips to try and make it only apply to same sex couples, anything you can do to deny one class equal rights while not denying other classes equal rights on the same ground.

The procreation argument was already dismissed by 2 courts and about to be dismissed by the highest court in the land.

You cannot pretend now that the basis is not hatred, it is obviously so.

Your religion of hate has come out of the closet for all to see, it is one reason your religion is bleeding followers.

Enough with the vets with injuries schtick! Geez. It's pretty rare but very terrible and very offensive to disabled vets. Please don't toss it around so casually. How would you feel tough guy?

P.S. I can't walk much but I still get it up just fine, I'm sure you're wondering.

So you can't debate something because you are too close minded to acknowledge people don't share your thoughts or beliefs about things. That's what a debate is 2 points of view being discussed. You don't want to answer my question because you would clearly loose a debate on this topic.

I live in the land of the free, not bound by any religion, where there is freedom of religion. All religions viewed equally in the eyes of the law.
But our laws not bound by an particular religion or cult.
If you have a private argument with these thousands of churches that wish to preform same sex marriages you can go have your argument with them.
Where in your bible does it place you personally as the judge of everyone else.
Where in your bible does it tell you to cast the first stone?
I'm not writing about a particular religion or cult, I'm writing about all holy texts ever collected since the dawn of literacy. Marriage is ALWAYS defined as male/female in ancient religious texts and myths.

What's up with that?

There may be no scripture that describes same-sex marriage. But you'll also not find scripture that describes electricy, Dr. Pepper, lawn mowers, non-stick cooking pans, antiacids, suspension bridges,(I could go on for pages...)

Do we need to live our lives so narrowly that we eliminate all things from society that aren't mentioned in the Books of the Bible?

I think modern incest laws are also based on biology; specifically, the possible problematic outcomes of babies born to incestuous couples.

As an FYI:

In the United States the District of Columbia and every state, except Rhode Island, have some form of codified incest prohibition. However, individual statutes vary widely. Rhode Island repealed its criminal incest statute in 1989. Ohio only targets parental figures. New Jersey does not apply any penalties when both parties are 18 years of age or older.

Borrowed with permission from "Uves Ghost"-

There are a number of colorful re-definitions of terms the left has accomplished. They've been so successful, I needed to compile a list of terms the left uses and their new definitions, so here's the start. Please add yours.

Progress - To move backwards toward proven failure.

Progressive - one who succeeds at proven failure.

Hate - To disagree with a progressive.

Conservatives - Those who hate.

Racist - One who points out the failures of Progressives.

Fair - to benefit the government at the cost of the citizenry.

Privileged - to have earned one's wealth.

The 1%- The richest 1% excluding the Kennedy's, Spielbergs, Gates, Feinsteins, Pelosis, Buffets, and other Progressives.

Middle class - people too busy working and raising families to keep a close eye on progressives.

Millionaire and Billionaires - Employers.

Welfare - Low income.

Families - Unwed mothers with bastard children.

Minimum wage - Government-mandated payment to someone of more than they are worth.

Hateful - Normal human reaction to mental illness-induced deviant behavior.

Diverse - Doctrinally pure and completely unwavering from Marxist/progressive dogma.

Art - Anything which degrades normal human behavior or cultural norms.

Religion - a type of insanity which needs to be wiped out.

Islam - the only religion which should be tolerated.

Christians - Jerry Falwell's fictional retarded Nazi stormtroopers who hate women and want to outlaw condoms.

Can you cite a problematic outcome of a baby born from an incestuous relationship? Do you have any biology or medical references that describes the problems of incestuous births?

More likely, modern incest laws are based on biblical laws that prohibit incest in order to desexualize the home. That's why biblical law condemns inccest even in the case of adoption, where there is no close genetic relationship.

It seems like you guys who are against same-gender marriage would want us to pair up with one another instead of risking a closeted gay guy (or gal) marrying you or someone in your family.

Imagine you or one of your children being in a marriage for 10 or 15 years and one day the spouse comes in, sits you down, and says to you, "Honey, I've been fighting these feelings for years, but I can't fight any more. I am gay. I guess I've always known, but my preacher told me to just 'eat' my feelings and try to cure myself. I want a divorce."

Continued inbreeding may increase some medical problems slightly but occasional inbreeding hardly ever.

So there is no reason I can't marry my sister. Besides, procreation is irrelevant to marriage we have been recently taught, correcting centuries of improper thought.

And sis is SMOKIN' HOT!
