See how illiterate you are? Of course you don't. You don't see at all.

Smoke and mirrors smoke and mirrors. Fear is the greatest emotion you can use against people. That's why those authors of that fiction book you follow used it so often. Scare people into doing what we want. If your book truly taught love acceptance and forgiveness all of you bible thumpers wouldn't always be spewing hatred.

You use the bible as a crutch because you can't think for yourself. If you did everything "because the bible says so".

You would own a slave
You would gang rape virgins
You would rule your wife and her body

"For the wife does not rule over her own body, but the husband does..."
1 Corinthians 7:4

There are hundreds of stupid things in the bible and things nobody follows. Why are you allowed to preach from a scripture that you pick and choose which of it it follow?

Yes, but God did not make you stupid and foolish, that is your freewill and choice. God did not make youd void or reason and blind to His Holy Word, satan did that, and that is your choice.

These 10,000 years, which are known as "time", have but one purpose, to show that a creation, humans, who have freewill and choice, will choose hell and damnation, which 1/3 of the angels will receive, but that Christians have chosen salvation and heaven, which 2/3 of the angels have.

God is a just God, the 1/3 angels are damned, because they were created without freewill and choice, you are damned because you have freewill and choice, and you choose to reject God's word, reject Jesus and to follow satan.

IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

Still no legally valid justification for changing and altering the meaning of marriage, to include same sex couples. Ain't that something?

By the way, when did this prohibition begin? The only case that can be made is in California, where the justices allowed it for a mimute and then it was prohibited.

Now, please explain your legally valid justification to change marriage to include same sex, but not adult incest, child incest, bestiality, polygamy and pedophilia.

If you justification is consent, then that is just an opinion. If your justification is the moral concept of family and parenting, then that is a moral opinion like same sex couples.

You got nothing. Sorry!

Also please look up the definition of the word. It does not say man and woman. This is straight from Wikipedia.

Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) is a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that establishes rights and obligations between the spouses, between the spouses and their children, and between the spouses and their in-laws.[1] The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. When defined broadly, marriage is considered a cultural universal. In many cultures, marriage is formalized via a wedding ceremony. In terms of legal recognition, most sovereign states and other jurisdictions limit marriage to opposite-sex couples or two persons of opposite gender in the gender binary, and a diminishing number of these permit polygyny, child marriages, and forced marriages. In modern times, a growing number of countries and other jurisdictions have lifted bans on and have established legal recognition for same-sex marriage, interracial marriage, and interfaith marriage. In some cultures, marriage is recommended or compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity.

People marry for many reasons, including: legal, social, libidinal, emotional, financial, spiritual, and religious. Marriages can be performed in a secular civil ceremony or in a religious setting. The act of marriage usually creates normative or legal obligations between the individuals involved. Some cultures allow the dissolution of marriage through divorce or annulment. Polygamous marriages may also occur in spite of national laws.

Marriage can be recognized by a state, an organization, a religious authority, a tribal group, a local community or peers. It is often viewed as a contract. Civil marriage is the legal concept of marriage as a governmental institution irrespective of religious affiliation, in accordance with marriage laws of the jurisdiction. Forced marriages are illegal in some jurisdictions.[2]

Actually, it would be 9 states and 10 countries. So, not in 41 states and not in 190 countries.

Fact is, marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman.

Just like a tree is not a house, although many houses are made from trees. So, the fact that some idiots think that the definition can be changed, only makes them dumb. Remember, you atheists also defined the earth as flat and now many of you think that man's oldest mammal ancester is a rat.

What does the word "homosexual" even mean? You do not even know, since it is a bastardized word from to languages.

Consider, what the word "homo sapien" means and then what does "sexual" mean?

The fact is you do not want to know, just like the words deviant and perversion aptly describe same sex acts, but you do not like the tone.

When is a suicidal same sex person or one with AIDS ever happy? So, the word "gay" is not apropos.

Please get an education, The word homosexual has only been around since 1853.

Wikipedia has simply redefined the definition of marriage.

If we take the Middle East position on same sex coupling, then by definition we are to kill you all.

Yes, spouses and so let us define a spouse. So, by definition a spouse is a husband who has a wife.

Word Origin & History

spouse

Before your gay anger sets in, please tell us what arguments you have heard against incest, polygamy, pedophilia and bestiality?

Would it also be:

The Bible is opposed...
They're Icky
I don't like it
The Bible is opposed...
well, let me see, some incest couples can produce, polygamist can, and many pedophilia couples can. I guess that leaves only same sex couples and bestiality couples as not being able to ever produce.
The Bible is opposed..
Etc.. yes your position is like discussing something with, well an infant!!!!
