I wonder how many problems we could solve if people focused less on imaginary gods and more on real world issues and solutions...

I wonder how long it'll take the Neo-Nazi Far Right Christians to mobilize against this? It's just letting gays be married, what's the big freaking deal? I'm straight, and see no harm to society.
EXACTLY. These bible thumpers should mind their own business. What others do in their personal lives have NO affect on yours.

there is more domestic violence against "gays", then there are straight people!= FACT!
Source your "fact"

And why do you think marriage would increase these incidences? Plenty of heterosexual domestic abuse and they're allowed to marry. How is this relevant to marriage?

I already explained the reasoning for the question. You need to look up mating behavior and the strength of its influence on behavior.

No assumption needed. You haven't disproved the point.
Here is why it matters. Words describe reality. Accuracy makes us safe and happy. Inaccuracy is called denial. It is dangerous not only for the person in denial, but all those around him. An example would be labeling arsenic 'sugar'.
In your example, you are equating genetic defects, but denying the gender distinctions. This is exactly why I encouraged you to read up on mating behavior.
Once again, if you look at the most basic essence of marriage, it is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Not only is it impossible to equate gay couples to marriage, they are diametrically opposed to each other.
I appreciate an honest question.
I don't need to read up on mating behaviors, it's entirely irrelevant. There is no identifiable harm in SSM. This make believe harm to society you're imagining is all in your head. I will be requiring hard proof that allowing gays to marry will somehow harm society, not conjecture. I'm sure interracial marriages also made people not feel safe and happy too, I'm sure there were people who thought mixing races was against evolutionary mating behavior. So sorry the freedoms of others makes you feel uncomfortable.

And I'm sorry but whatever you believe marriages greater purpose in society or basic essence is is also irrelevant. Denying individuals freedoms because it doesn't fit with your grand vision of what marriage or society should be is sick.

Why is that the only reason to resist calling gay unions marriage? Who says so? There may be millions of valid reasons to resist the attempt.
Moreover, it is at the best speculation. Unprovable either way.
If there sre millions of valid reasons I would love to hear them. If the reason isn't that it causes harm of some sort I have difficulty finding any other reasons.

When it comes down to it burden of proof is on those who claim it does cause harm or whatever other reasons they have, if it's unprovable either way then you have no basis for denying it to people. Mere speculation is not a good enough reason.

You are an idiot.

-You censor your own intelligence.

-You require 'hard proof' for something that doesn't exist.

-You clearly act out a 'god' power to dictate conditions.

How's that working out for you blonde baby?
