I don't hate gays. I feel bad for them. I fully understand it is a genetic defect of the hypothalamus.

By the same token, bisexuality is learned behaviour that I don't want my children getting involved in because you feel it is normal.

The Bible has been translated so many times who really knows what it might have said at one time, eh?

Hopefully, in The Bronx where he belongs and I hope he stays there. He still owes Steven Pagones about a quarter of a million dollars which he refuses to pay.

Sexual orientation is NOT a choice. It is as an immutable characteristic as one's eye color or chirality.

You and many like yo seem to think that one's "choices" in life somehow automatically excludes one from the protections of the law and the protections of the U.S. Constitution. This shows a profound ignorance and\or misunderstanding of these protections.

For instance, if one CHOOSES the deplorable "Roman Catholic lifestyle", or ANY "(fill in the name of a religion) lifestyle", one is STILL protected by the laws and U.S. Constitution, even though one made that conscious choice. Similarly, if one CHOOSES to be a reporter, phtographer, blogger, etc for a particular media, not only are you protected by the laws and U.S. Constitution, but you even get "SPECIAL RIGHTS". In fact many states CARE OUT "SPECIAL RIGHTS" in the form of "shield laws" BECAUSE one CHOOSES that profession (or "lifestyle" if you like that term better.:)).

So even IF sexual orienatation WERE a "chosen lifestyle",(and once again, it's NOT), there is absolutely no basis to claim that "choosing that lifestyle" somehow magically excludes you from the protections of the laws and the U.S. Constitution.

Claiming that it somehow does shows a complete ignorance of the law and the U.S. Constitution and the RIGHTS ad LIBERTIES it protects.

You aren't making sense.

And, haven't a large number of the judges who have ruled in support of equality been Republican appointed conservatives?

ALL conservatives who are "small government" certainly don't want the government involving itself in everyone's personal life, right into their marriage and bedrooms. No true conservative could ever support DOMA.

But, you get to fall in love, choose ONE spouse, marry, and form a legally recognized family.

Gay folks don't. Not even ONE spouse. At least not on a federally recognized level.

Do you see the difference?

No, they won't. You retain all your rights. Actually, you can have as many wives as you want in the U.S. IF you do not ask the government to legally recognize more tahn one of theose marriages.

And if you DO get arrested for bigamy, for any reason, you STILL retain ALL your constitutioal rights such as the right to an attorney, the right to remain silent, the right to a jury trial, etc. Ask Warren Jeffs.

Pretending to play house with someone of the same sex for tax benefits isn't 'forming a family'. It is fraud.
