Blame Obama you idiot! No its not! You fool! Explain your connection then!
You obviously hate heterosexuals, simply becaue you know poor thou don't have something we do,
My connection is based on love and shared mutual interests.

What more is needed?

Maybe that explains why my husband & I have been together for over 26 years, while all my hetero siblings are on their 2nd or 3rd marriages. They choose poorly.....

LOL! Shared mutual interest? What does that mean? Sharing things you are interested in? Those are friendships of association, or you do it unwillingly anyway.

And being both interested in something doesn't mean love.

Marriages based on love & shared interests last much longer than those based solely on tab A & slot B.

My husband is the love of my life AND my best friend; how many heteros can say that about their spouse?

It's no wonder you heteros have a 50%+ divorce rate and 75%+ infidelity rate.

Many who actually love their spouses can say that they are closest.

In what way is he your best friend?
You don't love him, you just have an affinity to like him, as a friend, that's all.
Having the same interests is not love. Love is on the level of emotional interest, you fool!

So now YOU get to decide whether I love someone or not?

I never said having the same interest is love. I know that's what you WANTED me to say, but that's not what I ACTUALLY said. I said loving someone who also shares the same interests as you makes it much more likely your marriage will be successful.

He's the love of my life because he completes me emotionally.

Being from ohio, i didnt vote of him, and this isnt going to help me vote for him in the future. Sure i am happy he has "evolved" his position; but too little too late.

How would you know sharing the same interests makes marriage more successful?

From personal experience, observation of other marriages, and statistical evidence.

But you're too stupid to understand any of that.

It isn't that mutual interests hold together a marriage, it is just that marriages that contain mutual interests are normally belonging to the type of marriage that holds together.

It means marriage. Even The Bible agrees with you:
.
++++++++++
1 Samuel 18 :1> And it came to passe when hee made an ende of speaking vnto Saul, that the soule of Ionathan was knit with the soule of Dauid, and Ionathan loued him as his owne soule.
.
1 Samuel 18:3> Then Ionathan and Dauid made a couenant, because he loued him as his owne soule.
.
1 Samuel 18:4> And Ionathan stript himselfe of the robe that was vpon him, and gaue it to Dauid, and his garments, euen to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.
.
1 Samuel 20:41> And assoone as the ladde was gone, Dauid arose out of a place toward the South, and fell on his face to the ground, and bowed himselfe three times: and they kissed one another, and wept one with another, vntill Dauid exceeded.
.
1 Samuel 20:42> And Ionathan said to Dauid, Goe in peace, forasmuch as wee haue sworne both of vs in the Name of the Lord, saying; The Lord be betweene me and thee, and betweene my seede and thy seede for euer. And hee arose, and departed: and Ionathan went into the citie.
.
2 Samuel 1:25> How are the mightie fallen in the midst of the battell! O Ionathan, thou wast slaine in thine high places.
.
2 Samuel 1:26> I am distressed for thee, my brother Ionathan, very pleasant hast thou beene vnto mee: thy loue to mee was wonderfull, passing the loue of women.

Nonsense.

Biblical theology was never taught that way until gay activists twisted it to justify their lifestyle. I don't know why the gay community is so concerened with having God and the Bible justify their immorality to the point where they have deeply intently misinterpeted scripture.

Someone must be feeling awfully guilty that they must take scripture and Christian theology which has been taught a way for centuries and twist it another way for themselves.

As for Portman....a "conservative" he is not. Damn fool.

Seeing as the bible is full of proven lies and falsehoods, and is apoor moral guide at its best...why would it matter about theology from it?

How long have you been married? You know so much about it, so you MUST have been married for a long time right?
