I'm attacking no one, merely your ugly, morally offensive choice of beliefs that you blame on God and the Bible. I realize you are willfully blind to the difference, but it is not one and the same. You are not God nor do you speak for him cupcake, you speak for NOTHING more than you.

Your remarks are aimed at God of the Bible cupcake. I quote Him.

No dear, they are expressly for you. You can blame God and the Bible for your choices all you want, but it is you and your choices I am addressing.

So you pray sweetie and you keep giving us tortured verses to convince us that you're right, but the ONLY one who can affirm that is God and you still aren't God. Sorry, sweetie, but I don't believe in you either.

I'm not trying to convince you. Where did you get that idea. Who said God wants you? Not me.

Maybe it's your hundreds of posts to various threads where you endlessly insist that the good Lord feels the same way about us as you insist he does.

God does, you haven't actually read the Bible have you? In the grand scheme of things dear, you simply do not matter.

For somebody not trying to convince me of anything, you're still trying awfully hard to convince me that your tortured interpretation is right.

You conflate the two (and hope that no one would notice?).
Are you still confused about it?

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Ss couples are a defective, pointlessly duplicate gendered failure of mating behavior.

Do you have a scientific analysis or evaluation that discounts that?

That is wither a postulate or an assertion.

It isn't a conclusion to be used as an arguing point until it's supported and PROVEN.

I can wait.

Until then, it remains an Argumentum ad Repetitio Fallacy.

It is part and parcel of evolutionary theory. Is evolution invalid too?

So you claim. Demonstrate it with valid, authoritative supporting materials.

C'MON! This is high school-level essay criteria.

I didn't comment on that before because it doesn't make, or even support, your pet assertion.

At the very least, the author of the work under discussion notes a similarity between mating imperatives among non-human animals and human behaviors, then goes on to ASSUME an identity correlation and build his thesis upon it.

It's just a fancy construct predicated upon a cluster of unproven hypotheses. He attempts, as is frequently the case among tyros or the poorly trained in the discipline, to prove his premises by his conclusions. Precisely backwards.

Regardless, it neither directly provides, nor indirectly supports, your pet assertion in ANY particular. If you can't see that, you were ill-served by whomever it was that introduced you to the Social Science disciplines.

Honestly, progression in one of the Social Sciences is very dependent up achieving competence in all of them. If you are weak in one, the others will suffer immensely, and not a little nonsense makes it's way into print as a result.

Interesting.

It is written by a woman who supports gay marriage.

Oops...

All assertions are referenced.

Oops...

It is a slightly more descriptive explanation of mine;

At the most basic essence,

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.

Oops...

You didn't comment because you are denying reality.

Oops...

The only argument you present is false claims of debate violations, because you have no honest, direct rebuttal.

Oops...

Sweetie, I've read the book, that is far from the only qualification. I realize that it would be the first thing to come to YOUR mind, you must have to do it, a lot, but repentance alone gets you nowhere.

Not your call to make dumpling. Why do you keep confusing yourself with God?
