There is only one way to have sex and not sin. The marriage bed is the only place that is not unclean or dirty and defiled in the sight of God.
So you're saying that it's wrong for a married couple to have sex in the back seat of a car? Or in their living room?

Marriage - not a right, not even mentioned in the Constitution.
Something doesn't have to be mentioned in the U.S. Constitution in order to be a right. And the U.S. Supreme Court has already declared marriage to be a right.

Homosexuality - at best, described as a medical condition
Only if heterosexuality is also described as a medical condition.

There would be great debate as to whether or not homosexuals are capable of assuming proper parental roles, but in the current state of debate, liberals would generate bogus statistics anyway.
In other words, because of your homophobia, you automatically reject any scientific study that shows that children raised by same-sex parents turn out just as well as those raised by opposite-sex parents.

In both cases, these are litmus test issues where those disloyal to a party are forced into a financially punitive lifestyle, either by raising children they can't afford, or by heaping further financial burdens on the unmarried through unfairly taxing the minority to the benefit of the majority.
And the unmarried are "unfairly taxed" in what way?

And while we're at it, what do you think about the *topic* of this thread? Or are you just here to spout off your homophobia?

I wrote something on my journal that is similar to what you're describing. I'm describing it as an artist's point of view:
The Art of Being
It was the beginning and the point of an isolated beam. It became a mark that spawned an imagination for life. It traveled and grew to become a vast area capable of sustaining the most fragile of nature yet palpable by design. An extension of illuminated beings. The bud of life began to unravel its core - the mind that is created in synchronized rhythm that which is life, and made known. An existence once more.
The Art of Structure
Seedlings began to sprout extended like strings that attached to one another, making all possible combinations. It became the blueprint for a system as the attachments were made firm and intact. Multiple systems replicated and adjoined in harmony creating each of its vibrations.
The Art Form
The vibrations of life filled the space in free and orderly movements. And each system was given a form, and the form had function. Tapping once, twice, and many more until the form created a pattern. The patterns became a cycle in a system. Thus, the cycle of life.
The Systems and Cycles and Patterns of nature are a motif to beauty.

Why don't you leave it at that. We know where you stand. You don't have to start making up lies and preaching those lies on here.

With that kind of mentality you will not find the truth. You just want to be an antagonist. That can be self-destructing. So if that's the route you want to take, by all means, be it. No one is stopping you. You still fill the void of life.

In other words, to "find the truth", one must open the skull, discard the brain, and automatically accept any new age woo that comes along, despite a complete lack of objective, unambiguous evidence to support its claims.

Good luck with your belief in a "god" that you can't even figure out how to describe to someone.

Hmmm!
But come to think of it, how can people of the same sex be marriage partners?
That is ridiculous, how can they procreate or reproduce?

As long as they have functioning genitalia, they can reproduce. I can't imagine why you would think they cannot.
Let me just jump ahead a bit...Yes, almost all primate species have demonstrated same sex sexual behavior, along with many, many other species.
So, you are saying that a man can impregnate a man and a woman can impregnate a woman?

Why not?
Do you think that procreation only happens within the boundaries of marriage?]
May I ask you a side question?
Do you know what a gene is?
I do know what a gene is. Lets face the fact, it is improper for a man to go after a man, it is sexual perversion.

I know you want to paint a picture that depicts heterosexual reproduction as something sacred. However, there are many people who can't take the responsibility of being a parent. So why can't gay couples take that responsibility instead by adopting a child they could nurture?
