Unnatural is what gay marriage IS!
It IS a sin AGAINST nature & God!
Sodomy IS what homosexuality IS!
An UNNATURAL sex act!
Go to another Country where it IS welcome!
It is NOT welcome in the United States of America - a Christian Nation!
Cause it DAMN sure is NOT an atheist one!
Ah, but "clear biblical teaching" also demands that you must kill disobedient children: Deuteronomy 21:18-21, repeated in Leviticus. People with animus against homosexuals cherry pick the Bible to justify their dislike, while ignoring many of its other such bloodthirsty admonitions, more of which I'll happily quote to you if you don't know them.

In your heart you know they're ridiculous, so I ask you to look into your own heart and see another way to look at this ancient, heterogeneous anthology called by many, "The Word Of God", but not by God himself. If the Bible were really the literal word of God, then it would be in just one translation in every language, distributed free to every single human being on the planet.

In the New Testament, there is "clear biblical teaching" that women are inferior to men, as shown by Paul's admonition "should be silent in the churches", and "should not teach men".

When it comes to the founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ, it is essential to look at what he says about Homosexuality. Actually, nothing at all, not in his Two Commandments, nor in his Eight Beatitudes, nor his Seven Last Words. Quite an oversight by the Son of God, if Homosexuality is really so awful as to merit exclusion from the Promised Land, especially when he got stuck into those who judge others, without seeing their own faults.

Finally, what do you expect homosexuals to do, marry opposite sex partners in whom we have neither romantic nor sexual interest? Why would a sane woman marry a gay man who has no feelings for her, when she could have a heterosexual man head over heels for her?

And when it does finally happen, you better hope one of those evil Dems is in the White House, otherwise it will be decades before we get marriage equality in all 50 states.
Care to back up your "statistically unlikely" statement ?

1. A SCOTUS justice today will live longer on average than anytime in teh past simply because the average age humans live is constantly increasing.

2. A SCOTUS justice today will live longer than the average American alive today because higher-income people can afford much better and more frequent medical care.

Whatever you call it, gay marriage will be legal in all states.
If we need to amend the Constitution to shut you up, so be it.
Homosexual pervert marriage will be no more legal than NAMBLA marriage, lady-german shephard marriage, etc.

A man putting his prick into the flatulence wrinkle hole of another is flatout sick and perverted just on the level of common sense. Certain body parts fit together...like a man and a woman.

What is your, and other opponents of same-sex marriage, obsession with homosexual intercourse? That seems to be the only thing you guys can seem to come up with. Now, it seems as though you guys are the REAL perverts. What a shame.

All I read was "yes". Calling him bigot was an innocuous joke (or so I thought).

I am the last person to disagree with you. Not only do I agree that gay marriage is a constitutional right, but I believe the very fact that the issue is being debated is unconstitutional.

Don't act out your guilt on the rest of us. You should have thought of that before you went straight.

The average age of retirement and/or death for a SCOTUS justice is 79 y/o (since 1970). Average length of their term is 25 years.

Kennedy & Scalia are right on track for both those statistics.

Either way, when one or both of them go, you better hope one of those "evil" Democrats are in the White House if you want marriage equality nationwide in your lifetime.

There is nothing wrong with two men or two women having intercourse together. Why are you so worried about what people do in the confines of their bedroom? So, tell me now, who is the real pervert?

Free speech right? That means anyone can publicly make a complete ass of them-self saying stupid things.

And YES, it applies to same-sex couples as well.
Absolutely and I believe SCOTUS will eventually state that Marriage is as much a fundamental right for Gays and Lesbians as they have stated for interracial couples.
