Gays can marry, they just can't marry each other and should never be able to marry each other becuase it wouldn't really be marriage, it would be an abomination just like family members being able to marry each other would be.

According to our Constitution there is no law against abomination.

No point. They already have a legally established relationship.

But a gay man can marry a gay woman. What's up with that?

Family members are already kin. Civil marriage creates kinship where none existed before. Big difference. And as another poster suggested, feel free to link to the "abomination" section of any state law dealing with civil marriage. Your thinking is pretty lazy.

So, you are perfectly fine with a gay man or a gay woman marrying your straight child and forming a loveless marriage of convenience?

Good to know.

I mean, we certainly don't want gay people marrying each other, right? It's FAR better to find nice unsuspecting straight folks to marry. I truly hope that such a thing happens to someone you love.

That made no sense at all. But you know that, don't you?

So why bother?

"Abomination" isn't a legal term. It's a word used in simple-minded pursuits like religion.

I have heard it explained as those things which violated the tribal law and punishable by death. The people who wrote and enforced the Book of Leviticus were just the same as Islamic clerics who enforce Islamic Sharia Law. You are correct, it has nothing to do with our Constitution. It is the law of religious fanatics.

There's really nothing to fear. Allowing same sex marriage does not have an impact upon tradition marriage, whether existing or yet to be performed. In fact, it has no impact upon anyone except those who would marry someone of the same sex. The existing marriage bans do not serve any legitimate state interest, and as such are unconstitutional. The prohibition of same sex marriage will end. Perhaps not this year, but soon. Simply because there is no legitimate purpose served by its prohibition.

Many biblical "abominations" could be forgiven by simple cleansing rituals; they weren't all death sentences.

Constitutionally guaranteed equal protection is not a waste of time. You, on the other hand, are.

Tell that to the people who have worked so hard to deny basic civil and human rights to other Americans, FORCING them to fight back in the courts.

No sane American would put up with having their family marginalized.

YOU wouldn't. Don't expect gay folks to care any less than you would.

So, I'm guessing you have no problem with married gay folks, right?

And, Dear, since we are ALL sinners, wouldn't that mean that we all should be put to death, according to you?

Geesh.
