Marriage has always included two men, or two women, long before you were born, and just because you choose to ignore it, doesn't negate the indisputable facts!

PS: The world has since discovered the Earth really isn't flat, and it's not the center of the universe, either.

I'm calling people who changes the rules to win, cheats. I'm saying a predator doesn't follow rules. Do you think it's fair to deny these are types of rule change?
Yes, we've seen you change your own rules, and we've seen you cheat. What else is new?

Care to share the joy about New York's ruling to share marriage with gay and lesbian couples?

It's it absolutely GREAT!!!!!!!!!!1

This is so true. Why do gays want to teach it is ok to be gay when they are supposedly born that way? If they were born that way why do they spend so much time trying to convince school age children to convert and accept their lifestyle?
They have an agenda and it is not about marriage. If they can destroy the definition of marriage they will destroy the foundation of civilization.

I'm not a religious fanatic, so basically, I don't see the point in denying people rights based on a dying creed.

Marriage is both a secular and religious institution. It is not solely a religious institution, although many religions do have marriage rites/rituals.

Civil unions are solely secular institutions, if you so elect. Our rights come from God.

God gave us free will. Rights come from our treatment of each other. The benefits of marriage should be given equally. To me this is nothing more than discrimination due to sexal orientation.

The benefits of marriage can't be given to polygamists without changing the nature of marriage. Keeping marriage male/female isn't discrimination due to sexual orientation, it's due to gender. There are no gender equality rights in the Constitution.

There is no gay gene. It is a choice. Period. If there was a gay gene, it would be classified as a defect. Period.

Keeping marriage male-female discriminates against male-male and female-female, so yes, it is discrimination by sexual orientation.

Keeping drivers licenses out of the hands of the blind discriminates against the sight challenged. Keeping marriage male/female is like husband/wife and father/mother. Neat natural law.

allowing brian to marry and procreate was like allowing a blind person to drive - ill advised and dangerous for everyone else around.

So keeping marriage from homosexual couples is the same as keeping the blind from driving? No. The blind are not currently able to operate a vehicle because they lack the necessary ability of sight which is required to drive. The homosexual does not lack anything to be married, and therefore should be able to be married. Denying them marriage is to discriminate based on sexual orientation.
