So you are saying it is normal for the same gender to engage in sex? So how then does your species reproduce? No matter how many tines one rump ranger ejaculates into another rump rangers lower intestine no offspring will be produced, thus your kind has to recruit instead of reproducing.

Like the old saying goes, silly pha-got , dicks are for chicks.

Immunity to what law?

Contract law is in effect here. No one's "immune" from contract law-not even homosexuals. Hale wanted to be immune from it, but she has found that she is not.

That your sexual behaviors result in an evolutionary dead-end.
Not only does the Church condemn them, but Darwin gives you a big, fat "F."

A contract cannot legally bind someone in violation of existing laws.

It is known as an unenforceable clause.

An example from landlord-tenant law for example might be a rental agreement that gives the landlord the right to seize and hold the tenant's property, or to lock the tenant out of a property based on non-payment of rent. This violates existing tenant protections in Ohio law that require a legal eviction through the courts and a supervised "set-out" of tenant possessions.

Now, a landlord can write up a rental agreement that violates protections, but it is not legally binding because it violates protections in the law.

Get it?

Now--I am not about to predict how this one is going to play out. Too much new territory. But, it appears to be far from settled law and there have been recent decisions that could trend in either direction.

But your claim that the contract supercedes the law is flat-out wrong.

Whenever how mentality defective those impulses are gets pointed out you and your fellow homosexuals through a fit. I have never had an issue with lesbians and queers that kept themselves. When you try to force others to accept your behaviors as normal that is when I draw the line.
Tell me would you suppprt polygamy and polygamist marriage(s)?
We know that Spook is a supporter of polygamy.

Irrelevant.
All heterosexual unions carry the potential for procreation and reflect biological complementarianism.

It's not..polygamy creates inequality of the sexes and too many bachelors. Better change your bigoted tune because all those bachelors might turn gay..

Your stupidity is epic, hissy twink:

Almost 11 years ago, Pope John Paul II, in an address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, caused quite a stir by declaring that "new knowledge has led to the recognition of the theory of evolution as more than a hypothesis." Some Catholics, particularly traditionalists, believed that the Holy Father was stepping outside of his competence in making judgments on scientific matters. Others, including Catholic scientists, welcomed Pope John Paul's reaffirmation of the traditional Catholic principle that "Truth cannot contradict truth." In other words, to the extent that the theory of evolution has a solid scientific basis, it must be compatible with Catholic doctrine.

Oh so it is possible for the antiquated RCC to change it's moralistic views, going against the bible? How odd? Seems hypocritical..
