By accepting the State's definition of marriage, no matter what it is, you ARE redefining marriage. Before the 1910s, marriages were not up for permission of government. By using force to enforce YOUR definition, you're redefining marriage on a whole other level.<quoted text>I'm sorry to hear of your parents divorce. I still don't think that's a good reason to redefine marriage for everybody.
<quoted text>Any friends who were raised by single parents and are now single parents? Any having children younger than before? Is this trend,'alright'?
<quoted text>Having a mother and father does affect the upbringing of a child. Having a married mother and father reduces the chances the child receives welfare benefits.
<quoted text>What if it could be the end to 0.00003% of the human race? Don't consequences matter?
<quoted text>The fact that every homosexual was born of heterosexual union proves marriage should stay male/female, gender diverse. In fairness to men and women, marriage is 1:1
Gender integration marriage is affirmative action but same sex marriage is gender segregation. See the difference?
<quoted text>Ad hom argument just proves logic doesn't work with you. Thanks for the insight.
It's about how you feel about yourself and your opponents. You're OK, just some of those leftist ideas are broken. Gender equality doesn't work; diversity does. We live with differences; and don't insult people who don't agree with the way we live. That's life.
Kentucky stopped same sex marriage with a Constitutional amendment; they are a model for the Federal government.
Single parents don't beget single parents if that's what you're trying to imply. lol!
And no, I'm glad my parents got a divorce. It would be toxic to live with them if they were going to fight all the time. The idea that children have to have a two-parent household is an insult to family values.
Consequences do matter, but not by force. The human race will NOT go extinct via homosexuality. If you think so, then you need to do your homework.
Your last point makes no sense. People are born with a sexual orientation, it's not nurture. You can nurture your gays kids to stifle their feelings and pretend to be something they're not. Hatred is not a good value to teach kids.
