Homosexuality is but an invention of western culture. Like dogs throughout history men would hump just about anything they could get their hands on. Most folks are to some extent bisexual.
When white guys watch a porn movie about a blond giving a bj to a black guy with a huge... they can pretend their fantasies are about her but... why else would they be into that kind of...?
Wow! you really don't know what the hell you're talking about, do you? Who told you this bullshit, or did you just make it up and think stupid people might buy into it? have you tried a career in religion? that is the foundation of that whole business...

A special exemption for bisexuals so they can fully explore their sexuality? It would be discriminatory to give homosexuals that right but not the far larger bisexual...
Once the camel's nose is inside the tent... all perversions must be given equal treatment.
you are talking about something far different from the two person legal marriage. if you want to explore the possibilites of plural marriages, you would need to invent a whole new law code for such. if it is found equal and non-discriminatory and acceptable to the US public, it would be adopted.

Here is my religion. There was this creation event called the big bang and things just evolved from there. Who knows what set it off.

Most biologicals are naturally bisexual. There is no such thing as homosexuality outside a western cultural context.

It will be. Once gays have forced themselves down our throats via the courts we are down the slippery slope where anything goes. No matter the perversion...

calm down.....now that the UK's passed the vote the only thing that will happen is gay ppl will get married....eventually when the law is enacted & if it doesn't get blocked along the way
marriage still requires consent of adults.....beastialiy, necrophilia, pedophilia... will still be against the law

the argument you were told to parrot, or that you stole from someone you thought smarter than you...(not a real stretch on that, huh?)was proven wrong before you heard it. look at all the places that have had SSM for wuiote a while now. none of the doom and gloom scenarios (bad things happening..) have come true..

get a brain or shut up...

And yet the anti spiritual freaks have been forcing their subversion and decadence upon our youth for decades only to send a ba$$hole like you to continue and blame religion for how screwed up this nation really is. Coward!

You believe that legally recognizing the marriages of one group of productive taxpayers will cause straight people to run wild in the streets, harming children and pets?

You don't have much faith in straight folks, do you?

But why should any gay couple and their kids suffer for a few heterosexual's lack of common sense and morals?

`

Where do you get this stuff from? Gay people marrying is not "anti-religious. Why, a large number of us marry right in our own religious denominations, but the very same church leaders that marry the rest of the congregation.

What people dislike is whe n some religious view they don't share is pushed on them, or their kids. Then they push pback.

As would you, if a school started daily readings from the Koran and issued each child a prayer rug, required children take classes taught by Rabbis, demanded that all students study the writings of a catholic Pope, or held pagan ceremonies to welcome spring.

That's only happening in your mind. Actually, we're much less of a joke to the rest of the world NOW.

Gay people marrying will cause straight people to run amok?

but religion IS to blame for many of our ills and many of our past ills. the further we, as anation, have gotten away from religion, the more moral of a nation we have become.

look at hte nations that have the lowest percentage of believers and are almost completely secular...they hafe the highest standards of living, the best educated kids, the healthiest, happiest citizenry...

i cannot think aof a better step we could take as a nation than leting those stone-age myths drop by the wayside where they belong...
