I think God wanted for us to be male and female. Not male and male or female and female.

I don't know how someone can take a vow before God that God specifically speaks against, why would you even want to do that? They have civil unions, why is that not good enough?

Gays should have equal rights, including the right to a hostile, bankrupting divorce like everyone else.

I've been happily married for 10 years and never took any vows before a Christian God. Marriage is not a religious union. If it where, why are atheists allowed to marry? Why was I? A WEDDING is a religious ceremony binding two people in the eyes of God. And a wedding is not a requirement of marriage. A marriage is a legal contract. It's produced and recognized by the government.

Marriage is between one man and one woman! It's against God and nature! They are not able to recreate, so how is being gay natural?

Alright, if it's against nature, why is it that so many animals in the wild take same sex partners, some for short term and some for life. Let's look at the Swan. Male swans have been known to take male partners regularly in the wild. Swans mate for life. A pair of male swans will roll an egg from a neighboring next and hatch it together, then raise it as their own. The interesting part, these hatching swans, having been raised by homosexual swans, are no more likely to be homosexual themselves as their genetic siblings. This whole process is natural and happens regularly in the wild. Gods creatures have homosexual relationships without the interference of Man on a regular bases. Mammals, fish, birds and insects.

And if all swans felt like those two particular egg stealing swans, the whole species would go extinct.
And as far as those two's hatch-ling not being influenced to be "homosexual" themselves, you cannot possible compare that to a human child, since swans have no "gender role" in their society as we do.

Yes it is, but why is it necessary if a marriage covers the same laws and is equally recognized? Why do Christians deserve to hold the monopoly on marriage? And if they're so "hell bent" on making it a purely religious contract, why don't they throw fits when none Christian straight couples marry?

Because God recognizes a woman and a man in union, but not same sex unions, so non-Christians can be married without anyone "throwing fits".

Why do we care so much to keep marriage for straight couples only? I can't speak for everyone, only myself, but as for me, its a matter of morals. How can my own morals tell me that it is wrong, and support it at the same time. Do I not then damn myself? I feel like this country was founded on high moral character, that stood for Gods laws. I don't want to see it go down hill, as it is doing, supporting gay marriage and abortions among other things. America today is no better than Sodom, so therein lies our fate.

Isn't it funny that the same opinions that used to make you 'of high moral character' now make you a bigot and ignorant?

So being gay is natural because animals do it?
Animals also engage in cannibalism and incest. So I guess that makes it natural?
Or are you just saying that gays are a bunch of animals?

Under the right circumstances, I think both would be acceptable. Incest is outlawed for several different reasons. Firstly, incestuous relationships are often non-consensual; rape. Also, an incestuous relationship has the possibility of producing a child of a limited genetic pool.. inbreeding. Well we've learned it takes generations upon generations to produce defects based solely on a shallow gene-pool, so the real reason these days is to keep family members from harming each other.

Cannibalism.. This one is a lot easier to understand. We, as humans, and possessing a conscious and the ability (not the freedom) to choose, are under a moral obligation not to harm others of our own species, even if we do, on a regular bases, harm other species. Human nature is to harm people, we can't avoid that. We avoid Cannibalism because it harms other humans. Good reason, too. Other forms of harm amongst humans are outlawed, right? Even if they are natural. Simply because they DO cause harm.

Why would we avoid homosexuality? It doesn't harm anyone, does it? It offends people, but so does drinking, smoking, driving with your brights on, plumbers crack and loud elderly women. None of them are illegal, because harm and offence are not the same beast.

It's immoral. It's unnatural. Males in the animal kingdom don't mate with other males. If gays want rights, give them 10% off KY jelly and put them back in the closet.

Sorry, males in the animal kingdom DO mate with other males. Want a list of all the mammals, fish, birds and insects that have been documented as doing so? Some of them even mate for life.. with the same sex.

So am I to understand that incest would be perfectly fine if there were no physical side effects for the children and it was consensual? Lady, you are twisted.
And you've been married 10 years? To a man? I noticed that with the exception of one, all your recent post have been in random cities across east tn, all on gay marriage. Where does this passion come from?
