While I do disagree with homosexuality on a biological basis, restricting the union between folk is wrong. Also, assuming that marriage is automatically sexual is pretty vain. Seriously, what if they just want to start a family, and they need the benefits that come with marriage? Think, knuckleheads!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with disagreeing and arguing against, but there is something wrong with forcing someone to make the choice they do not want to. That's also a sure-fired way to get them to stray from you, via Newton's Second Law (it applies to RL as much as it does physics).

That is all.

It's only human. Our constitution states that all mankind have equal rights on this soil.

Well, which is it?
Do you believe in the Bible, or are both man and woman equal? Because it cannot be both.
Even in the new testament, it says that women should stay quiet and not speak in church and to ask to their husbands if they have any questions.
Chris, It says in the bible when a man and a woman gets married they become one .That means equal .Why should a women have to ask a man if they can speak if they are equal ? Remember it said they become one .Do you think women should be treated like the women in other countries ? The bible also says worship only one God .The men on earth are not Gods . Don"t forget man wrote the bible more than one time .Each time they changed things . If a man thinks a woman is not equal to them when they go to church then they should leave them at home or let them go to a church where they are treated like a human . Where they can hold their heads up and be proud of who they are .So many woman are mistreated because a man thinks they own them .

If they are "equal" according to the Bible... then
A) how come a women is not allowed to speak in church?
"Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law" (I Corinthians 14:34-35)
B) how come a women must be subserviant to her husband?
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything." (Ephesians 5:22-24)
So if your follow the Bible... would you still say women are equal....

If you will look up the King James that wrote the Bible you will find he did not like women and he enjoyed being with men .That is right ,male lovers .I beleive, This is why he throught men should treat their wifes the way the Bible tells them to do .Its called brain washed .I beleive God loved women just as much as men .He did not make women for a man to mistreat . The men in other countries beleive they have the rights to beat ,rape, pour acid on them ,stone them to death, cut their heads off and if their wife gives birth to a baby girl its the womans fault .Thousands of baby girls have been killed to please man .They beieive these men has a right because their good book tells them so .There good books was written by men also .What kind of God would we have if God wrote the Bible and told the men they have the right to mistreat women and baby girls ? I beleive God lives in our hearts and we know what is the right things to do or not to do.The God I beleive in is a loving God and we are all his children , not just the men .

I beleive marrige should be between a man and woman . God made Adam & Eve .Women have babies because God made them that away .Two men or two women can not have babies together .But I do not beleive it is my place to judge anyone .I have seen men that act and sound like a woman and the same thing for some females acting like men .It is plain to see something is different about them .I don"t beleive in same sex marriges myself but this is my way of thinking .I am judged by what people think about me but it does not matter . It only matters when God judges me .This goes for everyone .

First the two men two female baby deal... We allow infertile couples to marry, couples where one has been "fixed" to marry, couples where the women is post menopausal to marry... so the difference between them and a ssc would be?...

If I am understandin you correctly, on a personal level you do not agree with ssm. However you feel it is not your place to deny ssm based on your belief.... is that in a nutshell correct?

Ok, I can honestly respect that. I do not think anyone in favor of ssm believe that once it is law of the land that everyone will be in favor of it. Which is ok. There are MANY things which are legal that I have a issue with. I guess that is what is great about our country.

Fine.. when we become a theocracy.. what "your" God says (or more to the point what you believe your interpretation of what your god says is) will matter... till then not so much

I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. Simple as that, but of course that is just my opinion.
