Gays are asking for bigger government to extend towards SSM, despite there being no state interest in allowing same sex marriages.
1) There actually IS a state interest in SSM. Just like OSM, it promotes financial stability.

It does not require any more government than currently exists.

SSM does not "attack" the Constitution. Rather, it is seeking to ensure that the Constitution and the laws of the land are applied equally to EVERY American, including the gays.

Is a scientific cause needed in order to determine if a characteristic is a sexual disorder?
Second question: what is the scientific cause of gravity?(not looking for a theory, I want a scientific fact)
Gravity doesn't violate evolutionary mating behavior for one.

Homosexuality violates evolutionary mating behavior. Without knowing why, a supposed professional organization supposedly based on science proclaimed it normal.

An honest person would say BS, which is why you don't.

Marriage promotes the best interests of procreation.

A contract promotes financial stability. That is all a ss couples needs, and that is all the got.

Marriage provides for over a thousand benefits, many of which are not available under standard contract law. The ONLY solution allowable under the Constitution is full recognition of SSM nationwide.

Your comment assumes a conclusion that not everyone agrees upon. In fact no scientist supports your comment at all. You base your conclusion on words you read that were written by a "Yahoo Contributor" who supports same-sex marriage.

The scientists that have studied homosexuality have determined it to be a natural and normal orientation, not only among man, but also throughout nature.

Bottom line, homosexuality is as natural a phenomenon as gravity. The origins of both phenomena are unknown.

The lack of full understanding of a naturally occurring phenomenon does not indicate that it is unnatural or a disorder.

Hardly.

Ss couples do not equate to marriage and are therefore disqualified to access the rights.

Any minority has the right to establish their own rights, just like marriage did.

Homosexuals need to ask themselves why they don't feel adequate to establish their own identity.

Imposing a false identity will only increase the problem.

Stop lying.
Isn't it funny how many of your posts involve blatant lies?
40 years....ya don't say? Out of how many years since the birth of the Republic? How old are the sexual identity labels above?

Except that they are married, as married as you are and recognized by law just like yours is.

Why don't you feel adequate to admit that they are married? Why do you have to hide and pretend they are not, when they are? What are you so frightened of?

There has to be a reason to grant the benefits to begin with. A compelling state interest in privileging marriage, the union of one man and one woman, as husband and wife, does not exist with same sex unions, thus no obligation to grant benefits.

".....as married as you are...."? Really Big D, are you that confused and stubborn? Even the law recognizes the distinction in its pronouncement of the couple, "husband and wife", not "spouses for life".
Why don't you feel adequate to admit that they are married?
Why don't you admit the state changed the rules, declared an apple, an orange?
Why do you have to hide and pretend they are not, when they are?
Why do you pretend the state didn't change the rules, when you know they did?
What are you so frightened of?
What are you so frightened of? The state will change the rules again? Drop monogamy, as it did conjugality?
