Ss couples do not equate to marriage.
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
ss couples can't be 'married'. It is impossible.
It is visibly obvious they are only ever a senselessly duplicated half of marriage. A desecration of sacred design. A barren imposter relationship that is always a devastating deprivation of family imposed on a child for the sake of an illusion. A violent imitation of sexual intimacy.
There is nothing, at any level that equates a ss couple to marriage.
Smile.
I agree. Just like infertile people marrying. It's preposterous, and should not be allowed. I mean, am I right?

And, as soon as religious beliefs are a legally valid justification for prohibiting same-sex marriage in America, you'll have a point.

For this govt to force this upon our youth should be a crime. I don't care what anyone thinks, the gd jews that puppet our govt are behind this with the sick minded liberals that call themselves 'Christains/Catholics.
There could be proven no God at all and all religions could vanish in an instant but as human beings we are still left with the choices of what is right and what is wrong and sodomy between two men is simply disturbing, and that is being modest. With the preposterous concept of ss parenting I call it child traficking.
These no good sob's have been destroying our society extensively since the 60's. Don't get me wrong, it's certainly not only gays, it's the people in high places profiting from this crap that should be put away. They have been corrupting our society in many many was, but this is outragious.
There will come a day
And that day is near.

Childless marriage has never been a problem before, why should it now?

However, equating a duplicated HALF of marriage perpetually desolate and barren is simply idiotic denial of the most basic essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Smile.

I wasn't using religion to justify the distinction between marriage and ss couples.

I simply noted that like marriage, in 8000 years of human history, religion has been present in every single culture from start to finish.

Calling ss couples married has NEVER in a SINGLE culture been accepted from start to finish.

An astounding distinction.

You think you have it all figured out but you don't.
When married couples who are sterile (due to physiological anomalies or age), engage in sex, their conjugal act is still ordered towards procreation. Homosexual sex, on the other hand, is sterile by virtue of the anatomical, biological and physiological incompatibilities of those who engage in it.
It's that simple.

A lack of verifiable evidence is a factoid that does not lead to proof.
I never said nor implied such thing. Those are your words. Own them.
However, just by looking at the world around us, we can see that the world is not unintelligible as it would be expected if the world was just the result of some cosmic accident. It is also possible to personally know God, but this never occurs in the way you probably think God should manifest himself, if he existed.

What diaper head snyper doesn't understand is by his pathetic rationalizing for no God at all in order to make his homosexual argument whole, is that there is no such thing of anything in life as we know it as being "wrong" at all.
ANYTHING goes, by his argument.

So what about fertile couples that use condoms and or birth control pulls. Should they be condemned because they clearly are not trying to procreate they are trying to prevent it?

Biblicism is a heretical tradition that is itself a self-refuting tautology.
You are "perishing" and "blinded".

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NKJV)
3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

<quoted text>On other words, you are saying that only 1.4% of males admitted to being gay and only .8% of females admitted to being lesbian. So, if we double the figures and make it 2.8% and 1.6% than equates to about 2.2% gays in population. That would mean that 50% of gays are homophobic about being gay and suicidal. However, we know that most gay suicides are by openly gay folks.
Maybe YOU do, but nobody else would say anything that stupid.
