10. Women and marriage domesticate men.
Men who are married earn more, work harder, drink less, live longer, spend more time attending religious services, and are more sexually faithful. They also see their testosterone levels drop, especially when they have children in the home.
If the distinctive sexual patterns of "committed" gay couples are any indication (see above), it is unlikely that homosexual marriage would domesticate men in the way that heterosexual marriage does. It is also extremely unlikely that the biological effects of heterosexual marriage on men would also be found in homosexual marriage. Thus, gay activists who argue that same-sex civil marriage will domesticate gay men are, in all likelihood, clinging to a foolish hope. This foolish hope does not justify yet another effort to meddle with marriage.

I believe that everyone should be treated equally and deserve to be happy. Most people never had to hide the fact that they were straight imagine how exhausting it may be to hide the fact that their gay?

So true. Yet everyday straight couples turn their back on the marriage vows they took before God. All a farce. Thankfully gay couples are willing to step up and clean up the mess by giving discarded kids of loving and healthy home. They don't have to do it but they're willing to sacrifice their own lives to benefit the children.

Get a life and stop worrying about other peoples. And further more dale there are millions of children that don't have a home or a mother and a father; that would be grateful to have a couple in their life that would love and take care of them no matter whether its a same sex couple or a heterosexual one.

i like to see that everyone gets the respect they deserve, they are no different than anyone else, they are citizens tax payers, why not give them rights, it is not for us to judge their orientation, only God can judge them

I think that people of all genders and races should accept others the way they are. Everybody is just fine the way they are. Stop being afraid of different. It`s ok!

Your comment is very uneducated! My children are very happy. They have no problems with any of the things you listed. They are both taken care of better than most children. They LOVE my partner with all their heart. If you ever talk to a child who was raised by same sex parents you will find that you are totally wrong!!!!! To have a parent in their life that doesn't care to be there would cause more damage than having two moms or two dads!!!!!!

The definition of gay is to be happy. Homosexuality is an abomination and is cosidered sin like many other things, but the good news is Jesus loves homosexuals. They only have to repent of their sin and except Christ as their Lord and Savoir. This goes for all sinners, because we all fall short.

It is true that kids need parents. Parents that love them for the small things that make them special, happy and succesful later on in life. Unconditional Love. Ever herd of it.It works the same way gay or straight. Children don`t want biological parents. They want loving,supportive,open and understanding parents. And by the way gays are not abominations. GOD gave everybody a heart and head. If you think with both is not wrong period.

Let me reiterate. Homosexuality is an abomination not the person. Like I said it is a sin just like fornication. I did not say it the Lord said it. You can believe what you want and twist someones words, but that doesn't make it the truth. There can only be one truth. Truth is not relative.

Dear Bamaboy, I am sorry that you feel like i twisted your words. That`s not what i was doing. I feel that by judging homosexuality as an abomination it`s ultimatly the same,because it`s a part of that person, heart and soul. I believe in God, and read the Bible. And i know for a fact that it says, homosexuality is an abomination, but it also says, not to judge. I appologize once again if you or anyone else have been offended in any way. Everybody has i right to believe what they want, but everybody also has a right to be who they are.
