Nothing wrong with it. People are going to be gay weather they can get married or not. Leave people be and let them find love.

Every gay was born of male/female union; that's the vital public interest served by male/female marriage.

I am a nurse ad highly educated daughter of a lesbian mother. Have moved past the typical ideas of my conservative state claiming gay and/or lesbian couples can not raise mentally healthy children as well as educated for that matter. I would like for my mother to share the same legal rights with her partner as other married couples do in this little state.

Ya such a VITAL public interest that
A) there is no law requiring you to procreate as a condition to get maried
B) We allow osc who can not have children, thus not be able to fullfill this "vital public interest" to get married.
Can't have it both ways

Why should we commit that kind of harm out of sympathy for your mother?

There's no law requiring you to carry a weapon even if you have a concealed carry license and no law requiring you to drive if you have a drivers license so why would you need to intend to procreate to have a marriage license?

Wow another attempt at a swerve....
Here is the deal.. you are correct with your statement... how ever.. you are the one making having babies a "vital" interest... thus making marriage a baby producing propsition. Far different from the irrelevant post of yours... NICE Try.

Again I ask why should infertile couples be allowed to marry IF as you propose making babies is the states interest in marriage....

Homosexuality is nothing new. Sin has been around since the beginning of time.

I never claimed 'infertile people should not be allowed to marry'.

I claimed we shouldn't change marriage's perfect gender integration to satisfy sexual predilection and introduce a new standard of gender apartheid marriage.

No you claim that the states intereest in marriage is the production of children...
Which brings me to the question you keep refusing to answer... If ssm can not meet that states interest so should not be allowed to marry (your argument) then why should infertile people, who also can not meet the states interest be allowed to marry.

would you two idiots stop talking about having kids. We all know gays can reproduce but they choose an insane, risky lifestyle and expect society to give our stamp of approval to it.

Because fertility isn't a prerequisite for marriage; even an infertile husband and wife could give an adopted child something no same sex couple can: a mother and father.

Sorry swing and a miss...
See your argument is children... having them... that is the states interest. Well now you change it to adopting...which ssc can and do do. Now your "belief" of it being better if the child had a mom and dad... may or may not be valid. However until that is a requirement it is as much as a moot arguement as ssc can not have children.... next

I feel sorry for any kid that has two women or two men as parents. Sad, sad situation
