I agree with your comments-- the government should-- according to the Constitution NOT be making judgements if a couple should marry or not based on RELIGION.<quoted text>When it comes to the question of marriage for gays and lesbians why does it even matter what causes it?
Do we outlaw males who carry the gene for early onset Alzheimer's disease from marriage?
The women who carry Duchenne muscular dystrophy; a form of muscular dystrophy that worsens quickly.... Because of the way the disease is inherited, boys are affected, not girls...
Or do we ban SSM because being gay is a Choice?
Like banning Presbyterian or Unitarian Universalist marriages because RELIGION is a CHOICE?
Atheism's main focus is rational thought. I have no problem with those who question my "irrational" belief in God. And I see no reason to challenge their belief because it is rational.
This thread is about a rational way to view being gay or lesbian.
Whether theological or factual logic, we exist, therefore there IS A PURPOSE FOR GAYS AND LESBIANS.
perhaps none of us know that that true purpose is. B u6t hen how many of us know our own true purpose?
That is **literally** a main premise of the Constitution.
And prohibiting gays/lesbians from marrying is a **religious** argument-- and nothing but religion.
It's the same as with anti-abortion, and anti-contraception laws-- they are strictly **religious**, and are unconstitutional.
