"Marriage" is a union between a man and a woman. Gay unions are a union, not a marriage.

I believe this should be of larger concern, marriage and not always, is for the propagation of children and no matter how you mix the body parts of the homosexual you can't make a child, also they do desereve human rights, no question on that, not enough to change the definition of marriage ater all they do represent a very small percentage of the overall population, and since we are a christian nation 86% than the bible needs to omit it as a mortal sin

Marriage Equality and Inclusion is EXACTLY what America is founded upon.

Just because you might happen to dislike gays and lesbians doesn't give you the RIGHT to discriminate against them!

"Marriage" is a union between two consenting adults. Gay unions are a union, not a marriage - and that is exactly why marriage inclusion for gays and lesbians is the next step, because unions are not marriage!

Thanks for making the argument for me!

I believe this should be of larger concern, marriage and not always, is for the love between two consenting adults, and the propagation of children, is a loving by product of SOME and NOT ALL marriages. And no matter how you mix the body parts of the homosexual you can't make a child, which has absolutely nothing to do with the "love" two people share. Yes, they do deserve human rights, no question on that, so marriage equality is good, it's right and it's just.

No one is changing the definition of marriage, after all, inclusion never changes anything, it merely expands it. And it doesn't matter what percentage of the overall population gays and lesbians are, the truth is we are a christian nation, and Christianity also supports equality and inclusion.

BTW: Robert - did you ever take an English class in school?
Did you even go to school?
Have you ever heard of a run on sentence?
It's a single sentence that has 85 words in it, and it doesn't even end with a period.

marriage is and almost always has been about religion, and or procreation. Its either done by 2 adults who wish to marry before god or it was done so that a child could be proven legitimate. Obviously, gays and lesbians can't have children, and therefore have no need to become married.(well there are other benefits now that the government regulates marriages, but that shouldn't be the case. its a religious function, not a state function.) But gays and lesbians wanting to be equal is a fairly new thing... in the past even the people who participated in gay or lesbian activities new what they were doing was wrong. That is, until someone decided to say "Hey, why don't we try to tell EVERYONE else that they are wrong for not excepting us." And then the media and other gays decided to start poisoning the minds of children who grow up having tv shows tell them that it is ok for them to sin against nature. Christianity does support equality, but it doesn't support homosexuality, and therefore I doubt that homosexuality is included in the christian "equality"

Actually, with a 3rd party, we can have kids. Speaking of which, if you use this argument against homosexual marriage, then you must also discount all marriages that are unable or unwilling to produce children.

If you knew anything about history, you would know that marriage actually predates religion and reliable historical record.
(well there are other benefits now that the government regulates marriages, but that shouldn't be the case. its a religious function, not a state function.)
Actually, you cannot be recognized as married in the US without a civil license. It is a civil institution.
But gays and lesbians wanting to be equal is a fairly new thing... in the past even the people who participated in gay or lesbian activities new what they were doing was wrong.
Its funny how history repeats itself. Black people wanting to be equal is a fairly new phenominon. Even though we finally realized it and through desegregation affirmed it 50 years ago, Black people have been equal the whole time.

I am a homosexual, and I hate to be the one to inform you of this, but you are not superior to me. You are no more human, and no more of a US citizen.

It is okay to be homosexual, because being gay is not an environmental product. I was born gay. This is a widely accepted fact by everyone who looks at the factual evidence.

People have been born gay since the dawn of humanity. Homosexuality is not a recent phenominon, nor is it a choice.
Christianity does support equality, but it doesn't support homosexuality, and therefore I doubt that homosexuality is included in the christian "equality"
Actually, christianity does not support equality. Women are not allowed to speak in church, and are not allowed to pray witout their head covered.

Again, you are no better than me, and you are using your god to justify your bigoted position because there is no other basis for such nonsense.

God intended marriage to be between one man and one woman. The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is an abomination.

The Bible does NOT state that you CAN do it, it simply shows that it HAS been done. The slavery also wasn't what modern slavery was like as far as the African slaves in America. The slavery in the Bible is more like a form of being an indentured servant. Such an arrangement would allow a poor man to survive. While not ideal, in an era before government welfare programs, slavery would be preferable to death, especially when some forms were more equivalent to modern-day employment than what we think of as slavery.

Again, read the Bible. Adam and Eve-first created beings, first married couple. You can't go any further back in history:)

If I didn't specify, marriage pre-dates RELIABLE recorded history and religion. The world is not 6,000 years old.

Debating the lunacy of the creation theory is for another forum, though.
