I'm sure you think that's clever, but calling a dog's tail its tail doesn't make the tail what it is. And if enough people call it a leg for a long enough period, a leg it will become. Would it be any different? No, but the language would be. Am I drunk? Not enough.

Just add ignorance to your denial.

Words describe reality. When the word 'leg' comes to describe a tail, what describes the leg?

Moreover, would the tail become the same as a leg? Of course not.

Hence the problem with calling an imposter relationship marriage.

You can't answer questions posed you. Imposter of faith comes to mind. Limited minds cannot expand to progress. Ha,ha.

Yes, words describe reality, but they do not make it. As for marriage, that reality is changing, the language (and the word "marriage") will, too.

Just like the bible. If people keep calling it true/real, then that's what it becomes to them

Reality is you believe in fantasy. Imposter relationships are those in denial of having one. As when 2 people claim no interest in each other but are usually together. Otherwise any time 2 or more people,its a relationship. From family members to friends to aquantences all come under relationship. Intimate relationship is usually involving just 2.

Who is "them"? Don't let what you see on TV while you're flipping through channels on a Sunday morning fool you into thinking that THAT is what modern Christianity is in this country or in the world. Christianity is not monolithic (nor is any religion).

I understand, let's just be careful not to paint with too broad a brush. That 58%(and growing) of people you mentioned as supporting gay marriage contains millions of Christians.

I know. I been with christians that are supportive. I was christian to. It's those like Kmare using that faith as a tool to cause as much harm and hatred that boils within them. I have said I respect a persons belief. However if a person uses a belief to belittle me, then I'll use their belief with like insults. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'.

Words describing reality, not making it was exactly MY point.

You are trying to change the meaning of the word 'marriage'. By your own words, that will not change reality.

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Yes, you are drinking too much...

Smile.

Jesus confronted religious people who violated the truth about marriage with these words;

Matthew 19:4-6 (MSG)
4 He answered, "Haven't you read in your Bible that the Creator originally made man and woman for each other, male and female?
5 And because of this, a man leaves father and mother and is firmly bonded to his wife, becoming one flesh┬Śno longer two bodies but one.
6 Because God created this organic union of the two sexes, no one should desecrate his art by cutting them apart."

Human bodies made of the same physical ingredients. This "religious bonding" as the 2 becoming one is just metophor. No matter the ritual and words, the married couple are still one. Where do you see 2 people merging into one being? What about divorce? What? The 2 bodies pull apart from one to two? No. They were separate before,during, after. For man and woman to become one in the flesh, you'd have a shemale. By the way, what are they to do when in love? How do they marry legally? This puts another angle to marriage.

And the reality is that the word marriage now represents same-sex marriage as well as traditional marriage. Once again, marriage has evolved.

There's your slide of reality pie for today, Kuntmary.

<quoted text> Gay marriage impossible? Guess what? It happened. There are married S.S. couples. Marriage isn't just about design. ANY married couple will testify to that. Fullfilled relatiinships S.S. couples have. Seen it for myself. Deprivation of family? Ever hear of single parenting? I also told of how not every 2 parent home is great. Abusive parents, more common than should be unfortunately, proves that is'nt always the best home for children. Look at the cases out there! Absentee parents,no child support from one or both children. Violent imitation of sexual intimacy? NO. The intimacy between I and this otber guy been nothing less than expressing love in and out of bed. You know nothing about it. I do. I live it.
Expressing love in bed?????? WTH does that mean?
Be honest little guy

Sorry Vicky,

Sexual union in marriage is a reunion of our evolutionary roots. It harkens back to the earliest pre-gender life forms. Profound that the Bible takes note of that!

Moreover, it is another evidence against ss 'marriage' that redumbant gendered unions are incapable of any such reunion.

Smile.
