Why people marry, does not explain why marriage is a licensed relationship by the state. If the state licenses marriage because procreation of aspect of the male female sexual union, then why people choose to marry is irrelevant.
<quoted text>
Remove the procreation all aspect, and why does it matter who marries who, or doesn't marry?
Pietro, marriage is a personal decision. The state doesn't issue marriage licenses based on their procreative intentions. The state has no business telling unrelated, consenting adults who they can and cannot marry. That's what the courts seem to be finding throughout the nation. And that's why people seem to be supporting same-gender marriage equality.

I'm simply asking why you defended a gay troll attack when I exposed it.
It's not a difficult question.
Exactly which "gay troll attack" are you talking about? Would it be the one where I destroyed your notion that "marriage and mating" are one and the same? Or the one where you seem to suggest that Christ "overruled" (my word) Paul in his claim that "revilers" would not be allowed into the Kingdom of Heaven?

I'm using your exact quote "marriage is mating behavior".
Marriage is not mating behavior.
Prove that it is.
You are using a partial quote if at all.

That is why you don't even reference it.

But more than that, you are trying desperately to distract from the profound distinction of the marriage reunion uniting humanity with their roots and their future at the same time.

Ss couples? A mutation mistake with no future and a past birthed within heterosexuality.

VV, marriage has always defined a distinct relationship among all cultures.

Laws limited involvement has historically been directly related to procreation within marriage. That potential has never needed a 'demand'. That is why marriage needs protection to prevent procreation where ss couples need protection to HAVE sex.

Courts are denying the essence of marriage in the face of a massive denial and herd mentality.

We simply and honestly point out the distinctions between the relationships and the consequences of that denial.

You are terrified people will wake up.

As you are trying desperately to distract people from the fact that same sex couples are legally married, and recognized at both the state and federal level despite the efforts of your mistake of a religion.

I'm simply pointing out that the reunion of a man and woman in marriage connects humanity with the very roots of their existence and, at the same time, reaches into the future with the next generation.

But you bring up an interesting point. Even the Bible notes the incredibly profound fact that marriage reunites what was originally one genderless being.

A ss couple just cannot equate to that depth of diversity in a heterosexual couple united as one, in anyway, shape or form. The past and future joined by a man and woman into the present embarrassingly exposes the absolute barrenness of a ss couple.

It really makes it shameful to even speak of equating the two relationships.

...and here you go again, repeating yourself.
these facts remain :
1. same sex marriage is legal in several states.
2. prop 8 case findings and decision made by judge walker stands that prop 8 is unconstitutional, per SCOTUS' rulings.
3. DOMA, section 3, is declared unconstitutional by SCOTUS.
4. your opinion disagrees with the previous facts. then again, your opinion does not drive secular law in these united states. so, again, your opinion doesn't really matter.
i'm hoping someday you can get off the broken record so your posts might become interesting and fresh for a change. at least we can all discuss different points.
Aw shuddup Jizzy you silly jackass. You never discuss anything. You're a moron.

"...interesting and fresh"... Too funny!

Why unrelated? What is the state's interest in prohibiting a marriage of two brothers?

You've made your opinion perfectly clear. Millions of people do not agree. Count me among them.

Unfortunately for you, you happen to be living during a period of enlightenment. The tide has turned against people like you. And this is our era.

While we're at it, why do you still assume that marriage is a function of reproduction?

They were facts, not opinions.
Far more agree with me than you.
It is clearly a period of denial.

One that involves the state.
The state doesn't issue marriage licenses based on their procreative intentions.
It issues marriage licenses based on the male female relationship, and the understanding that sex between men and women makes babies.
. The state has no business telling unrelated, consenting adults who they can and cannot marry.
It does, if it issues the license, which it does. If you want to marry whoever, don't seek state approval.
That's what the courts seem to be finding throughout the nation. And that's why people seem to be supporting same-gender marriage equality.
Not all the courts, states, or people.
