History is on our side. We defeated polygamy by making it a federal crime. We'd rather not go that route with same sex marriage; we'll need a Constitutional Amendment to protect marriage in America.

Your an idiot.. and those few individuals are millions and counting. This isn't about people trying to redifine marriage, it's about people fighting for what they deserve which is to be equally as happy as any other ordinary straight couple.
Name calling is the best you can do??

pretty sad that you need a piece of paper saying marriage to make you happy.

I cannot believe that an entity who loves us ALL unconditionally would be willing to condemn one of It's precious children to an eternity of suffering because they love someone who belongs to the same sex. It would be an irrational reaction and I do not believe that our Creator is an irrational being!!
Can't apply your thinking to God, His Word is Clear, no Judgment at all the Covenant of Marriage is between a man and his Wife only, and homosexual behavior is a sin. ROM 1:18-26

More states define marriage as one man and one woman with each passing year. History is on our side.

Just as it was once proclaimed by perverted bigots that god ordained marriage only between one man and one woman *of the same race*-- which was then struck down by the US Supreme Court as a violation of the Constitution, so will your perverted and antiquated beliefs on marriage equality, dearies!

If you don't like our laws, Brian and Chief, why don't you move to Iran or Saudi Arabia and become a citizen there?

No, not just as *of the same race*, there have always been arguments and calls for interracial marriage but same sex marriage doesn't exist in written law before the 21st Century.

The differences of race are unimportant and slight while the differences of gender are essential to human survival as a species and influence everything in life. It's evil to have separate restrooms for blacks and whites but perfectly appropriate to have separate restrooms for male and female.

Our laws say marriage is between one man and one woman. The courts have precedent for marriage between man and woman. Loving v Virginia is US Supreme Court precedence for marriage between man and woman.

Brian -- What you and the rest of the religious fanatics *fail* to realize is the fact your gender binary is a falsehood and a lie!

There are tens of thousands of intersex people who are neither male NOR female, and add to the mix the thousands of transgender folks like myself who also put a lie to your illogical and immoral gender binary.

Just as the south had those perverted "one drop" laws which were eventually relegated to the sewers, so will your precious and perverted belief about this so-called gender binary.

You can stick your fingers in your ears and go "LALALALALA I can't hear you!" or bury your head in your bible until you suffer from hypoxia, but reality has a nasty way of slapping religious bigots like you in the face.

Grow up boy, and join the 21st century instead of trying to relive the Bronze Age!

I guess that was why the religious right was pushing to legally define marriage as one man and one woman. But that is not really what I said was it? You need to redefine a legal contract as sacred to maintain your authority by religion. Sorry, its only sacred if you want it to be.

Male and female are lies? Tell it to your mother and father; I'm not buying.

Yes, out of billions, there are tens of thousands, less than .009% of the population are intersex; exceptions that prove the rule. Human biology didn't evolve around intersex people, male and female is the human condition.

So, M.B. knows that gender identity isn't a lie, it's very important, worth blood, sweat and tears. If anyone can appreciate the importance of gender, it's those born to the wrong gender.

Self awareness isn't an important value to the left, self esteem is.

Race has nothing to do with gender. M.L. makes the comparison only because it requires calling her opponents 'perverted'.

More states are amending their Constitutions to protect marriage each year. I support a national Constitutional Amendment to define marriage as male/female to protect state's rights.

If we need to reform enlistments because it isn't fair homosexuals pay into programs where they can't benefit like heterosexuals, we can compromise.

I'm a marriage moderate, I don't use insult, I like marriage the way the Texas Constitution defines marriage.

Long live Texas!
