    Then why did you bring it up?


    Note, I did not say that it is "natural." I said it is not biologically necessary, while heterosexuality is. Major difference.
    It's a meaningless difference, in the context of this discussion.

    Allowing same-sex marriage will have no impact on marriages between a man and a woman. It does not have any effect on procreation. It does not encourage more people to become homosexual.

    In addition, we do not require citizens to reproduce. Nor do we restrict marriage to couples that want to reproduce. If a 50 year old man and a 50 year old woman choose to marry, we do not stop them on the basis that a childless marriage somehow threatens the institution.

    In other words, there is pretty much no reason to block same-sex marriage.

    Let me be brief, laws are made by governments, arbitrators are not the last best hope, the laws created that govern contracts come from governments and get modified by governments.

    Contract law is not divine law, nor did it come to us on stone tablets. judge and juries do decide contract cases, the government does regulate what can and can't be in a contract.

    No. The Republican Establishment is, at best, Nixonian.
    Yeah, and?..... Nixon grew government, established the EPA, and a host of so called social policy that contributed to the further degradation of America by opening the door for progressives to creep in.

    George Washington and John Adams also "grew the government" and neither one of them were remotely progressive, either for their age or any other.

    "Big government" =/= progressive, any more than "small government" = conservative.

    No surprise, we disagree.

    I find it amusing how the progressive atheists sit there an attempt to imply evangelicals should be perfect.... At least evangelicals at least try to be the best they can be and do everything in their power to avoid what casual people or secular individuals would call "pleasures."

    Sorry, I had to get that out of my system...
    Jesus was crucified because were all sinners? I thought he was crucified because he challenged Roman governmental authority.

    Never understood why we are all considered sinners.

    Progressives were in American government long before Richard Nixon was alive. Nixon was simply being prudent much of the time.
