They are not marriages, and why? Because they are not recognized on the state or federal level, thank you for making my point.
But your point was that marriage is not dependent on what other people think. Thank you for making my point that it really is.

A marriage IS a legal contract, whether you comprehend that fact or not makes no difference to the fact.
No one has given you the authority to define other peoples marriages, just who do you think you are?
Same sex couples are as married as you or I are, nothing you say will change that fact.
For someone who has declared this thread moot, you sure are moot.

Not a member of the KKK. Before you go too far out on the limb, did you know he didn't like your kind, he was a homophobe

Well in an adjacent neighborhood that is, but not the gated one he decided to pass through. It just so happened that a resident of the gated community saw Trayvon and decided to go investigate what he was up to, because George knew he didn't belong, anyone who wants to protect his HOOD would do this, I do the same. So go pound sand you loser. RIP Trayvon no more worries
Here is a map that might help you. It was not an adjacent neighborhood: http://globalgrind.com/news/trayvon-martin-sh...

Georgie made a mistake, he decided he didn't belong because of his skin tone. they both are stupid. And it seems you are too. let it rest. take your Zimmerman poster down, he's no hero.

Social science defines the essence of marriage as a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Really, social science defines the essence of marriage this way? Exactly when did social science create this definition? Where is it recorded in the history of social science definitions? Does social science's definition supersede the states?

The bible defines marriage between a man and a woman. Theres no bible that sways from that definition. Gay marriages may be legal now, but in most peoples eyes, youre all just perverted people living together. You may be able to legally be married, a privile given to you by humans... but in gods eyes youre detestable and unworthy of his approval. Youre all spitting on the one special arrangement he set for humanity to be enjoyed by a man and a woman. Lets see how well your marriage does on judgment day.

I'm sure that is what you are guessing. You seem to guess a lot of ugly things. Because you're an ugly person. Like most fundamentalist Christians.

You are free to have believe in whichever book you want to in this country

but there are people legally married that donít believe in your little religion too.

and people of different religions that believe in many different gods and many different religious laws.

and people of no religion at all

Your little book has nothing whatsoever to do with marriage and how it is defined under US Law

Wrong. I have given the social science essence of marriage. That is why you have no defense for it.

All of the things I listed are unchangeable realities that distinguish between SS couples and marriage.

SS couples are clearly NOT the same as marriage.

It is an ugly reality isn't it?

It is one thing for a child to be deprived of their mother by accident. It is wholly another issue to deliberately do so.

That is the ugly reality of what you and your partner did in a vain effort to manufacture a fake family and imposter marriage.

Wrong you have given nothing but your personal opinion of the definition of marriage for everyone else. But you are not going to define mine, you donít have enough sense to define anything for anyone.

Here is a reality for you that you have not comprehended yet

A marriage is a legal contract, and same sex marriages are legally recognized by both the state and federal governments.

They clearly are a marriage whether you like it or not, as the contract is legally valid, and there is nothing whatsoever you can say to change that.

You lost, they won, get over it.

There is no requirement with regard to mating behavior for a marriage license.

Look it up, and then go find another argument that we will rip to shreds.

I'm sure they'll provide a lovely home for a child.

You should be wishing them good will instead of being a turd.

But then again why should we expect anything else from you?

If only you could quote a legitimate social scientist who defines marriage as you do...

You can't. They do not exist. Your definition is contrived; a lie.

Please stop blatantly lying if you wish to be taken seriously.

They deliberately deprived children of a mother.

But what does that matter to you, you damned the children.
