This has not one thing to do with "marriage". This has to do with MONEY. This has to do with a system that was set up to support non working stay home moms. This will speed the end of Medicare and Social security and grant citizenship and federal pensions to spouses who are not non working stay home mom's.
Don't even tell me about how they "just want to be recognized". Please. Get more attention for gay marriage now than hetero. Not a concern of mine except I feel for the elderly when the system crashes as millions of people inappropriately access it.
Yea right..You weren't all that outraged when it was MY money that was helping support your dead beat wife, just as long as I wasn't allowed to marry and give it to my spouse..Your bigoted privileged days are over POS.

It's always amazed me how this country is willing to turn itself upside down for what amounts to an incredibly small fraction of the population. Where is the video and evidence of Christians attacking Gays and Homosexuals? RIGHT! It DOESN'T exist. Those who always say and make accusations that Christians are intolerant are themselves exactly what they accuse others of being and yet they expect and demand a pass from it. Then you have others who approve of what they do or condone it and never criticize it or attempt to stop it.

"The study solves the evolutionary riddle of homosexuality, finding that "sexually antagonistic" epi-marks, which normally protect parents from natural variation in sex hormone levels during fetal development, sometimes carryover across generations and cause homosexuality in opposite-sex offspring. The mathematical modeling demonstrates that genes coding for these epi-marks can easily spread in the population because they always increase the fitness of the parent but only rarely escape erasure and reduce fitness in offspring."

Note;
"The study solves the evolutionary riddle of homosexuality",

"sexually antagonistic",

and "they always increase the fitness of the parent but only rarely escape erasure and reduce fitness in offspring."

Clearly an epi-marker mistake.

We agree then. Most of those supporting same sex marriage are hypocrites when it comes to any form of marriage they don't like.
We agree on marriage equality. But your weird fundie crap has got to go! This isn't the place for it.
Clearly you do not read what I write. I do not quote the Bible because I assert it is some kind of authority we should all believe in and trust, I quote the stupid and silly book to prove that it can not be trusted because it is unreliable, to tell us about homosexuality.

ALL homophobia comes from the Bible. We all grow up around stupid people and we all end up with Christian baggage; even the most arch Anti-theist carries some Christian baggage around with him.

This has always been a problem for gay people; gay people are raised to hate gay people just like everyone else is. No some much now as in days past. All of the most vocal anti-gay people I have even met have turned out to be closet cases.

The issue is Christianity against individual freedom. It is Christianity that is behind the ban on same sex marriage. When I fight Christianity by quoting the Bible I am supporting gay marriage and freedom. So I will not stop quoting the Bible to disqualify it as an authority on homosexuality.

The fundies believe and trust the Bible to tell them about homosexuality and I quote Scripture to PROVE with chapter and verse evidence that the Bible can not be trusted to tell us about how gay people should live their lives. I am sorry you are too stupid to understand that; it is called fighting fire with fire.

Genesis 22:1 ("And it came to pass after these things that God did tempt Abraham....")

versus

James 1:13 ("For God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man")

No, it is the end of Christianity and trusting the Bible to tell us about homosexuality. Western civilization and our American Republic will continue to evolve and as dinosaurs like yourself die off freedom will be extended to as many people as possible. No longer in American do white heterosexual pew warming males get to make the rules for the rest of us.

The Bible attacks gay people and really stupid Christians [is there another kind?] love to quote 6 verses from that stupid, silly and contradictory book while totally ignoring the other 33,000 verses that apply to them.

In our American Republic it is the job of our Government to protect the rights of ALL Americans not just the majorities. That means if there are only two homosexuals in America the Government still must protect their rights from being violated by ignorant pew warming bigots.

"The bible", is not a singular book, but rather a collection of writings, nor is it a book of science.
Western civilization
Would not be what it is without, for good, or bad, without Christianity in general, and Catholicism in particular.

How does one "extend...freedom to as many people as possible" as it relates to his issue? Are you advocating for polygamy? Please explain how demanding the state involve itself in one's personal intimate relationship is an example of freedom? It seems contradictory.
. No longer in American do white heterosexual pew warming males get to make the rules for the rest of us.
True, black heterosexual males, and females help, as Asian ones, and Mediterranean (Greeks, Italians, Spaniards, etc.), and Hispanics, and Middle Easterners , and all sorts of "heterosexuals", even some homosexuals too....you know the ones that are described by their fellow homosexuals as "self loathing". So much for "freedom" of speech and thought.

The version of "freedom" advocated by some SSMers is not freedom at all but an attempt to shut down dissent, and condemn those who disagree with the Orwellian orthodoxy which promotes SSM as a secular sacred cow. Those who oppose such a fundamental redefinition of a social institution, marriage, the monogamous union of husband and wife, which has been understood, and widely accepted since the beginning of the Republic, are labeled as "homophobes", and "anti gay".

No sir, it is you who seek to restrict freedom, not extend it.

The Bible does not use modern sexual political identity labels, such as "gay". Nor is "The Bible" a singular book. You seem to demonstrate a stupidity that you accuse others of exhibiting.

True, however, as it relates to the issue at hand, our Government, should treat all men, and all women the same.
That means if there are only two homosexuals in America the Government still must protect their rights from being violated by ignorant pew warming bigots.
Their rights ARE protected, the same as any other man or woman, in this regard
Matt. 18:19-20,[GW] "I can guarantee again that if two of you agree on anything here on earth, my Father in heaven will accept it."
All men are created equal., and thus are treated equally, as it relates to this issue.

The bible is utterly irrelevant to a discussion of civil law. Read the first amendment.

I agree, one wonders why there is such resistance to letting it do so?
Pietro Armando wrote:

No, Pietro, their rights are, in many jurisdictions, expressly denied. You have yet to indicate any compelling state interest served by denying same sex couples the right to marry that would render such a restriction constitutional.
Pietro Armando wrote:

One must believe in creationism for this to be applicable. The reality remains that all men are not created equal, they are not born equal, and the only means to ensure any measure of equality is to enforce it by law. When we fail to live up to this civic promise of legal equality, our Republic is injured.
