Racial differences are unimportant and tiny but sex differences are so important they mean the survival of the human race and permeate all of society, language and law. There are ancient and biblical arguments for interracial marriage but no such arguments for same sex marriage. Is that because sex segregating marriage is a disastrous idea?
Wait and see.
Liz is out in Wyoming. She crapped out because of gay marriage and couldn't take it any longer. Her entire family has been in the spotlight after Cheney declared her opposition to same-sex marriage. Now, that upset her sister, Mary, who is a lesbian. She said at the time on Facebook that Liz is wrong, and on the wrong side of history.

If the great one wants to marry the dumb one, let them. Who cares if they are vile, angry, old, obese, big teeth wee guys under four feet tall. They should not be denied the opportunity to love each other.

Great attitude! I know you certainly seem much less strident and vulgar now that you have married your companion. Everyone deserves happiness, even you and Petro and the guy in here who talks about farting all the time.

Her sister's spouse opposed her because she believes marriage is one man and one woman. The left is intolerant of anyone who wants to keep marriage male/female.

She withdrew from the Senate race because of serious health issues and I pray for the Cheney's health and happiness.

She's no Wendy Davis, that's for damn sure. I am supporting Wendy for governor because she likes all gays and wants them to be happy. Any society that restricts gays and abortions is not truly free and I love liberty. I'm going to send her a big, fat check as soon as I get my tax refund.

Liz likes her sister and wants her to be happy; she just doesn't want to rewrite marriage law for everybody to show her love.

Just because Duck Dynasty doesn't like gays doesn't mean the rest of us have to hate them. They're clearly not in charge and not in Congress either. I'll take a gay over Phil Robinson any day because his views are wielded out.

Phil Robertson hates sin, not gays. Didn't you read the GQ interview?

No, I didn't read the GD interview but I know enough to call a spade a spade. He may know ducks but he doesn't know gays. I do recall he said something about wanting to drill a wagina more than a butt, which makes no sense to me.

If they let Petro and DC Dave legally marry, maybe they would stop being a couple of promiscuous, worn-out trannies out at the truck stop and we could get some new, fresh, live female löt lďzards out here.

I think I saw them at a Justin Beaver concert, bopping and grooving. I could be mistaken though.

Sexual differences are preserved in the species, not contractual relationships. Gay marriage is not compulsory. There will still be men and women after this stage of bigotry is over and long gone. Wait and see.

Yeah, and the KKK just hated the sin of mixing races, not black people.

There are many excuses for segregation, see Sine's post above for one.

Same sex marriage is sex segregation marriage where our laws protect perfectly diverse and integrated one man and one woman marriage.

This way, we encourage our children to be responsible and raise their own children as mother and father; husband and wife.

Our laws allow divorce, marriage to prisoners, marriage to the terminally ill, and marriage regardless of ability to have children. There is no requirement that anyone be married to have children, that they raise the children they have or that children are a requirement for marriage. This notion that our laws are targeted at having a mother and father raise their own children is a fallacy that only appears as a reason to discriminate against homosexuals.

There is really only one real excuse for segratation, there are many rationalizations -- see Brian G's posts for a few.

So if I read correctly what you are saying, you don't have any problem with one dude boning another up the butt? Doesn't that strike you as indecent and bizarre? I think it's weird and it gives me the willies to even think about. People shouldn't behave in a lewd fashion, no matter how strange their predilections.

Marriage is a foundation for our society; it is the basis of family. Nobody knows what happens to society when gender becomes unimportant and marriage is changed into anything fashion desires. The results might be horrendous.

Let's wait five or ten generations before we change our laws. God bless Texas!
