because it doesn't. not at all. in fact having equality of marriage will make us a more moral nation and bring us closer to the goals our founding fathers set for us.

I saw a guy on public TV from Pew Research and he
said that their polls showed that pro-gay 'marriage' was now in the majority.

That is one of the reasons Hillary jumped on the
wagon without thinking. She doesn't want to be
labeled a discriminatory bigot for opposing
same sexed couples from lawfully tying their
bedroom activities with a official piece of paper...a paper that says there is 'marriage,'
not just 'civil union.'

Hillary is a lawyer. She should know that
marriage is not a word that was created by
governmental laws. CIVIL UNION was created
and can be created by governmental laws.

When two opposite sexed people join...they
have a sacrament and a civil union at the same
time.

Now, if the Christian faith opposes the sacrament
given to same sexed couple....because GOD opposes this....then the only way is for gays
to have ONLY a civil union.

When Hillary says that 'Marriage' must be given
to gays because it is their right...'marriage'
isn't something that governments can GIVE!
In order to give gays marriage' then, Hillary
needs to stomp on the rights of God-fearing
ordained ministers (etc) into 'giving' it,
forcing God-fearing individuals to go against
THEIR RIGHTS to a God-fearing conscience.

Like I said...Hillary was not thinking.
AND Hillary is coming out (ha, play on words)
as the same kind of communist ruler that Obama is.

In America, people have the right to follow God
and God's laws. That is guaranteed in the constitution. We have the freedom of religion
(just by a thread yet.)

So if the majority of the people think that
America should stomp on rights all over the place
then I really do think that America won't be
America much longer.

after these freaks get gay marriage, They still will seek more, because they are never happy with what they get.
Soon they will intend to many animals

Their main goal is to make the USA a bankrupted welfare state, god less moral less country.

How does marriage do that?

Actually, only people with your mindset seem to be thinking about bestiality. Other folks understand that animals can't legally consent.

And you would also need to prove how marriage increases the incidence of bankrupt governments, and decreases morals.

actually, if you knew what you are talking about, you would know that marriage is , in fact, a legal term. you had it backwards. religious cults glommed onto the idea millenia after the first recorded state sponsored marriages.

your rites of matirmony or whatever your cult chooses to call it are entirely seperate from marriage. keep them that way and keep them in your cult buildings...

You're not a lawyer.

Aren't you the idiot who insisted marriage is a simple contract?

Marriage isn't a simple contract.

Marriage is the foundation for society. In law school, we study it in Family Law, not Contracts.

For example, if a poster named Tapeworm entered a contract for his monthly "wreck-tum" bleaching, would that be the foundation of society?

Let me answer that.

No.
