What an idiotic claim. All belief systems are equal???
As soon as you can demonstrate whose belief systems are valid and whose are not, and why, in an objective and methodical way that can be replicated by anybody anywhere of any creed or faith (or lack of faith), you will have a point. Until then...

Because they're mammals.

Why does a butch lesbian dress and act like a man to attract another lesbian?
Brain chemistry.

I still don't see any connection between any of this and the legal definition of marriage.
KiMare wrote:
We were not discussing legal definitions that gays are trying to change. We were discussing the inherent, unchangeable differences between SS couples and marriage.
No...that's what YOU'RE trying to discuss to avoid the problematic reality that the legal definition presents you and your religious beliefs.

I'm just trying to drag you, kicking and screaming, back to reality.
KiMare wrote:
'Many' is an extreme exaggeration that also ignores the deprivation of a parent and gender that SS couples delete.
Yes, which is why single parenthood should be illegal, their children taken away and given to married couples. Whoops, those pesky logical ramifications got in the way again. You and logic sure do have a hate-hate relationship.
KiMare wrote:
Birth parents are by far the best and safest for children. SS couples are the worst default situation, ranking behind single parents.
So, to be clear: you'd rather have children with their abusive biological parents than with loving same-sex parents. Thanks again.

So, you're saying God can somehow intercede, which means God somehow affects the natural world, which means the effects of God can be observed and measured. Now, all you have to do is find one such instance of God interceding in some way, and we can go about measuring the effect of God.
By the way, as soon as God affects the natural world, God ceases to be supernatural. So...I'm thinking you might want to rethink your whole "theology," if that's what you call it.
Logic has a nasty habit of ruining religious claims.
you are joking right? OH MY.
if you don't see how God interceeds in the lives of people every day then you are missing so much.

But, you fail to demonstrate it. Just demonstrate a single instance of God's intercession, how you determined it was God interceding, and how you know it wasn't anything else that caused it.

Just one.

Looks like "whatawanker" can't spell "intercede".

Who are you, the spell check Pope for all atheists?

Don't forget:

1 Corinthians 6:9
New King James Version (NKJV)
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor HOMOSEXUALS,[a] nor SODOMITES

Very bad and biased translation. Ever try Young's Literal Translation? Still not very good, but better.

Far better to go to the Koine:

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...

Try to find the word "sodomite" in there.

Paul is not Jesus, nor is Paul God. But, of course, someone claims to have had a crazy-ass hallucination and suddenly he's the ultimate prophet and he's the one you should listen to about everything. Also, that's a sloppy translation of the original text. But, most Christians don't really care about what the Bible ACTUALLY says...as long as it justifies their own personal beliefs, which is why the Bible is the big book of multiple choice.

You do realize what this means, do you?
DOMA Ruling came on June 26th, 2013.
June 26th, 2013 equals 06-26-2013.

06 has 6
26 has 6
2013 = 6

The number 666 equals the AntiChrist.
The Illuminati strikes again. AntiChrist.
