ATTENTION:

There is NO SUCH THING as "Gay Marriage".

There is ONLY "Marriage". And some states, and D.C., and other foreign jurisdictions have decided to grant MARRIAGE EQUALITY to LGBT people.

Well said Europa!

There is NO SUCH THING as "Gay Marriage"!

There is ONLY "marriage" which means the sacred bond between a man and woman.

Thanks for posting!

Not necessarily so. Only religious institutions can sanctify a marriage.

The type of marriages that civil authorities conduct are ONLY civil marriages. A civil authority CANNOT "sanctify" a marriage, nor sanctify anything else.(That pesky old First Amendment thingy again !)

According to the Authorized King James Bible; marriage is the sacred bond between two men:
.
++++++++++
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.

10 states and the District of Columbia disagree with your "Sacred bond" notion. There are same-sex marriages.

But there is no gay marriage just as there is no straight marriage. The state doesn't force anyone to prove they're having sex, so you can't know for sure if anyone is gay or straight in ANY marriage.

But I do know for sure that you spend way too much time worrying about being in the closet while there's all this attention to "the gays" swirling around right outside your door. Maybe someone will think you're one of them. And they'd be right.

There is NO such thing as "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" marriage.......it is just marriage and it is between TWO consenting adults regardless of gender make-up......THAT'S what constitutes a marriage!!!

It's not possible to know (unless you can get that date from the next U.S. Census, provided they ask that question).

It's like asking "How many married couples are first cousins ?"

Who knows ?! Who cares ?!
