Gary, As usual, you gave it away like a virgin on prom night

That "cougar" crap was a bit sketchy, but that's what happens when you don't stick to what you know. And you CLEARLY don't know much about women!

I did like the whole 23 years as an airline stewardess thing, was it inspired by some 1960's porn?

Kom, the words 'HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE' don't appear once in all the passages you quoted.
Where in the bible does it say "man shall not marry man; nor shall woman marry woman."
Do not add to the bible; it is a sin.
Proverbs 30:6.
Kom, you keep saying that god is against homosexual marriage, but you have not been able to provide any biblical proof for this claim.
Why not be honest, and just say you hate homosexuality, and that's why you are against same-sex marriage?

My friend, I want to make clear of one thing. I do not hate.

The creation of marriage is recorded in Genesis 2:23-24: "The man said,‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called “woman,” for she was taken out of man.’ For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." God created man and then made woman to complement him. Marriage is God’s “fix” for the fact that “it is not good for the man to be alone”(Genesis 2:18).

And the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet for him." (Genesis 2:18)

… man was not created for the sake of the woman, but woman for the sake of the man; (1 Corinthians 11:9)

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (NIV).

So... if Jesus was the messiah then none of the laws of Leviticus apply and since its an absolute fact that Jesus never said a single word about homosexuality there is no religious bases for opposing same sex marriage.
It's all so OBVIOUS when you explain it like this. THANKS!
actually, jesus did say something about homosexuality. he said that it's called blessed by the heavenly father.

Apparently you can't accept new information that challenges your beliefs either. No matter how ignorant and unfounded those beliefs are.

Being simple minded must make life pretty simple,

your niv copy of the bible is bogus. the word 'homosexual' never appeared in the fraudulent ravings of saul, or in any other teaching in the bible. the word didn't exist.

not only that, but saul of tarsus was as queer as a three legged duck. why don't you actually study a little bit. you won't look quite so stupid.

The story would have been different if the author of the story new the limitations of cloning. If Eve was from Adam then Eve would have been his clone and Eve would be male.

My friend, very good conclusion but it is not truth. Remember that God is the Almighty and the one who created everyone, place, thing and idea. Forget not that God created the world and everything in it, I do belive that he could make a Woman from the rib of a Man.

He was a compulsive old queen. It looks like you are unaware of the fact that Pharisee men were all married and Paul hated women.

2 Samuel 3:7, Now Saul had had a concubine named Rizpah daughter of Aiah. And Ish-Bosheth said to Abner, "Why did you sleep with my father's concubine?"

hmmm... you haven't read the gospels very thoroughly, have you. it's in matthew... the problem is, however, if you want to actually understand the meaning of it you'll have to have the aramaic language explained to you. it was written in that language, you see... and much of it was mistranslated into latin and then again into english. the closest english translation of the latin volgate, however, was done by john wycliffe... are you up for it?(it gives most people a screaming headache)

Marriage is not a civil right. So save your hot air. You from the party of fraudulent voter rolls are the last person to lecture the contents of the Constitution. Odd that a straight person would be so intense on the details of the Prop.8 judgement? The 9th Circuit is the most often overturned. Guess your hate kept you from remembering that.
You a liberal like the mayors of Boston and San Francisco trying to use govt. power to intimidate a legitimate business because they don't like what he thinks? Your side could have been Goebbels tutor! I would expect you to know the stats on anal sex...I'll just bet someone has been up yours with Crisco to the elbow.
Take a hike, leftie....BTW, don't you libs spend Sunday helping out at the abortion clinics killing unborn innocents? Sure the leftie feminists love a girlie-man like you!
Liberals like you are more dangerous than any terrorist, you are the enemy within.
Ken, here's what the SCOTUS said about marriage in it's Loving vs. Virginia decision:

"The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the convictions in a unanimous decision (dated June 12, 1967), dismissing the Commonwealth of Virginia's argument that a law forbidding both white and black persons from marrying persons of another race, and providing identical penalties to white and black violators, could not be construed as racially discriminatory. The court ruled that Virginia's anti-miscegenation statute violated both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. In its decision, the court wrote:

“ Marriage is one of the "BASIC CIVIL RIGHTS (my caps) of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.... To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State."
