It isn't isn't like a religion, I don't have "faith", I look at actual evidence, and there is none that is credible.

That does not mean there weren't, we don't know, but I don't have to make up a fairy story because we do not know.

I am around kids all the time, unlike someone that would teach a religion I am welcome, invited to our children's public schools.

Go ahead and report me, one of my fellow astronomers happens to be a policeman.

Good. Here is some evolutionary science.

At its most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

SS couples are a defective failure of mating behavior making SS marriage an oxymoron.

Smirk.

on no, they are facts, provably so and irrefutable.

Like the fact that same sex couples are married, irrefutable, provably so, legally married and recognized by the federal government

Yes there are morons that close their eyes and pretend otherwise, but they are nothing but laughing stock

So, you believe that evolution requires legal restraints on mating behaviors? And you believe that the sole purpose of marriage is to create that restriction, even though married people can and do mate in a variety of ways with a variety of people, or not at all?

Too funny. I'd love to see you actually try to back that one up.

I'm not sure you understand that evolution is.

And now back to the topic - gay folks are still legally married and marrying in California, and the federal government recognizes each of those marriages.

Learn to face reality.

I didn't state my beliefs. I stated a constraint that every society in human history has practiced. In fact, social scientists assert it has been present for ten million years.

Nor did I ever state it is the 'sole' purpose of marriage. It is the most basic essence however. Scientists also assert marriage would not exist we're it not for children.

All of this simply and clearly makes your 'back to the topic' a fallacy. Perhaps you want to switch from science to religion to make your point???

Lol.

It doesnít matter if you state your beliefs or not, your disdain for science, your miscomprehending of evolutionary process, and your insistence that marriage ( which only exists in Humans as a legal contract and does not exist in the rest of the animal kingdom at all ) makes it obvious.

Marriage only exists as a legal contract, and I can prove beyond any possible doubt that same sex couples are married.

That is a fact, that you have your eyes tightly closed to.

When Gay couples who love each other exclusively want to be married and accepted in society, they should be respected and receive the same benefits that straight married couples have. It is now happening and I am in support of the laws which are allowing it to happen.
In the past loving commited gay couples had to stay in the closet to avoid being discriminated against. That was wrong!

In more and more states and nations around the country that is becoming true.

Donít lose heart, there are many of us heterosexuals that fight for equal rights for our fellow Americans.

Those left brooding over ancient dogma are losing power, respect and any credibility.

Marriage describes a distinct relationship in society. SS couples are not the same. They have every right and ability to establish their own identity and rights.
