Marriage is the union of 1 man and 1 woman for the purpose of furthering the human race.
Obviously 2 men or 2 women cannot reproduce!!!!
Call their unions what they want, but they are NOT marriages!!!!!!!

Same-sex couples are denied over 1,100 federal protections and responsibilities and hundreds of state and local protections that come with marriage.
Fine call it what you want, but include ALL the protections and responsibilities

I agree with you 100%. Just don't call it a "Marriage", which is the point no one seems to get through their heads!!!!!

What if a man and woman get married but don't have children? Can they still call it marriage?

They are denied as they should be.
If you want to call their "union" anything just call it an unnatural farce.

Dishonoring Texas

Monday, June 13, 2005

THE DAY TEXAS Gov. Rick Perry (R) ceremonially signed a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as an exclusively heterosexual matter, he may not have been intending to spit in the faces of countless men and women fighting for their country in Iraq. But that is what he did. Mr. Perry was asked by a reporter what he had to say "to gays and lesbians who are serving in the military right now in Iraq who are going to come back to Texas and may not be entitled to the same rights as the rest of us?" Mr. Perry responded that "Texans have made a decision about marriage, and if there is some other state that has a more lenient view than Texas, then maybe that's a better place for them to live."

In some sense, the governor was merely stating a fact: Texas law forbids same-sex marriage, so a returning veteran who wants state recognition for a lifelong relationship does have to go elsewhere. But the governor was doing more than describing a law that treats one class of people differently from all others; he was wallowing in it.

Foes of same-sex marriage often emphasize that they have nothing against gays and lesbians but are merely trying to protect the sanctity of a traditional institution. Some are certainly sincere in this protestation. But in much of the "defense of marriage" world, the rhetoric of tolerance is paper-thin. Mr. Perry, a veteran himself, did not take the trouble to honor the service of gay people now in harm's way or mention that they were welcome in Texas. He didn't mention the need to respect different life choices or note that same-sex couples might have deeply committed relationships. His message was simple: If you don't like it, leave. It's a message unworthy of the governor of any state.

But Hez does a lot of hanky panky with his IP address. Lately it says Location: hidden but he's had a variety of addresses including Pflugerville, Cisco, Comanche and Brownwood. He really can't fool me because I know his real identity and where he lives.

This claustrophobic Chris Crocker guy confirms and justifies my research that sexual-retardation is a valid point that is infesting American culture, and he legitimizes the argument that homosexuality is a chosen sexual abnormal misbehavior addiction that does not only decay the individuals mind, but it also corrupts the environment of its surroundings as witnesses and documented by eroding so many past societies and cultures, which is now visibly trying to drag America over the cliff with its pointless “Gay Marriage” endeavor.

Homosexuality is not only a sexual-retardation problem but it’s also a gender identity disorder. From my clinical experience, people who say,“I was just born that way” are saying, in effect,“I don’t want to acknowledge those childhood influences that contribute to my sexual orientation that is spawned out of child rape, child incest, and child abuse.

Homosexuality is acquired and discovered as a circumventive adaptation for coping with the fear of heterosexuality. Pleasure and excitement to a member of the same sex develops as a pathological alternative.

Homosexuality is an addiction or compulsion embedded from childhood pain that is changed once a person is committed to making that change in his or her life.
