That's an old, tired excuse. And I dare you to take that to the ghetto. You'd have an interesting visit.

You make a big mistake here.

Marie Curie, she not French. She married a French man. She was Pollack, her real name Sklodowska. Only left Poland because of dat ugly uprising to get her education.

Here's another one for you:

The editor of The Guide, Ed Hougen, stated in an interview with
Lambda Report, "I believe they [NAMBLA] are generally interested in
the right of young people to be sexual .... I am glad there is a group like NAMBLA that is willing to be courageous."

The San Francisco Sentinel was more blunt: "NAMBLA’s position on sex is not unreasonable, just unpopular.[W]hen a 14 year old gay boy approaches a man for sex, it’s because he wants sex with a man."

If your filth is so concerned about equality why not multiple wives? Oh and when too of the same sex marry which one is the wife? Do you flip for it?

This is not a polygamy forum. Start one and discuss it there, IF you can find any news stories to base threads upon.

Most samesex couples prefer the far older Latin-based term "spouse" (meaning "committed").

Try growing an original thought.

Equating homosexuals' fight for special rights is deeply disrespectful to the historical struggles of those who have been denied their true civil rights...like the right to vote or to exercise RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

Your statement, and the coiner of that phrase, are basing your terminology upon 12th century proto-scholastic "thinkers" who imagined an ideal, then imagined an order based upon that imagining. They also pretty assiduously persecuted any who did not match their imaginings.

If it occurs in nature, it's "natural".

How dare you discriminate against others due to their sexual orientations.
How ironic.

I think the big man, Francis, he might be askin me to hold extra hours for Confession. It gonna be hard to do, seems to me many many long confessions and flammable curtains in the confessionals. I may havta negotiate with da Pope, get smoke breaks so I can contemplate appropriate penance for big big sins!

Dude, not only do you not have the authority to redefine timeless social constructs like marriage...but you have absolutely no authority to redefine God's Holy Word.
Better luck next time.
Irenaeus did. So did Eusebius, Augustin, etc.

My sect never accepted the Saulian, Alexandrian, Cappadocian and Nicene heresies.

Now THOSE were redefining. lol

Better review your Apostolics and Patristics.
