What's decency got to do with it? That's so subjective it could mean anything. If people want to live with other people of the same sex, good for them but to try to get a religous ceremony thrown in to boot. It ain't gonna happen. How could it? I mean the very words Gay-Marriage are oxymoronic. I no Bible beater but if the book says it's against this type of lifestyle, how can you argue the book's for it? The next thing you know they,(the majority not homosexuals per se), will be trying to get everyone to quit smoking cigarettes. It's unbelieveable!
The issue is civil marriage. That is a right. Churches can do what they like. Some marry gay couples already.

How, exactly, does homosexuality tear at the fabric of society!?

There is no good argument for it. It's disgusting and should be considered a crime against nature itself. If a couple cannot reproduce for any reason other than a medical reason, this alone should tell you that it's wrong. Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
Marriage is a right. We should have equal rights.
What is and isn't "disgusting" is just a matter of taste. There is gay sex in nature, how can nature commit a crime against herself?
Eve was made from Adam's rib. So, Eve had the same DNA Adam had. So, Eve was a clone of Adam, and thus a man. Looks like god did make Adam and Steve!

Oh my!!!!
I'm glad you didn't mention orientation because what you stated applies to anyone not practicing safe sex.
But your genocide statement is...well...what can I say....a bit much and way over the line of decency. According to you that must mean you are practicing genocide.....LOL
ok then

Straight people have been having anal sex for years and that seems to have been accepted as normal as long as it was between a man and woman. So, why is it not for two people of the same sex that are in love? How many straight couples experiment with the finger up the bum and yet straight men get all offended and afraid of gay men. I say if you are confident in your own sexuality, what someone else does not affect and should not frighten you. Perhaps all those "straight" people are really closted and just don't want anyone to know!! Besides, the only thing between a "straight" mand and a gay man is a 6 pack of beer and his buddies not being around!

There is NOTHING "decent" about anal sex, the spread of STD's, undermining our family values, destabilizing our societal structures, not to mention creating band spreading the incurable, fatal disease known as HIV/AIDS which, it just so happens, is killing one child every minute of every day all around the World.
Again, I see NOTHING "decent" about the spreading of several diseases which ultimately result in the genocide (the complete extinction of a people) of humankind.
Then you should completely eradicate prostitution because more diseases are spread by straight people using prostitues then going home to their wifes than gay couples in a committed relationship!

We all know the whole "spreading of disease thing is a red herring.

Promiscuity exists in hetro and homosexual beings no matter what. The only gays I know are in committed relationships so the spread of disease isn't an issue.

YOu've now proved a lack of knowledge in another area.
Not all that surprising from someone that is indecent.
As I've said, since you appear to be so certain of your position on these matters, provide evidence to support your position to the contrary.

It would be a waste of my time. Some just love ignorance and make a career of it.

Not playing your game. You can come back now and say "that is what I thought....no proof".

Hmm...So far I've PROVED you WRONG here twice, if not three times, about your so-called beliefs/what you understood to be the truth...Again, I'm not playing "games", only trying to educate the, apparently, uneducated.

Probably because your concept of decency isn't very good. Try some Bible Study classes. They may help.
