It's a meaningless difference, in the context of this discussion.Note, I did not say that it is "natural." I said it is not biologically necessary, while heterosexuality is. Major difference.
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.
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.
I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad-redeemer (your Divine Democrat your Hebrew Madman) and write over his thorn-torn brow, The true prince of Evil the king of the Slaves!

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. [ ]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
