    Quote the state law that allows heterosexuals to marry the same sex.
    I think heterosexuals should be allowed to marry people of the same sex, too.

    a heterosexual can marry a consenting adult of the opposite sex. a homosexual cannot marry a consenting adult of the same sex. that is not equal protection under the law.

    That's not what you said. This is what you said:

    Give your evidence for that claim. Quote a state law allowing heterosexuals to marry the same sex.

    Yes it is. No one can otherwise marry the same-sex, and everyone can otherwise marry the opposite sex. Who proffers what sexually is frankly not my business as I'm not in their bedroom. Maybe you proffer same-sex, maybe bisexual, maybe some BSDM or get kinky in any number of ways....that's non of my business and certainly not the State's business.

    If you want the State's blessing then you need to be serving a "compelling State interest", which means raising children and/or fostering a stable and healthy long term relationship. Rather or not you like a penis in your bottom is totally irrelevant.

    This is not true.

    The KJV bible was translated into English in 1611. One of the earliest English dictionaries was Noah Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language, written in 1828. The definition according the Webster is:

    Sodomy -- A crime against nature.


    Then there is the Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary, which was copy-written in 1983, which states:

    Sodomy -- any sexual intercourse regarded as abnormal, as between persons of the same sex, especially males, or between a person an an animal.

    I don't accept sodomite definitions, or Wikipedia definitions.

    Sodomy -- A crime against nature.
    Since all of the things I mentioned occur in nature... as does same sex activity, this definition is incorrect.


    Then there is the Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary, which was copy-written in 1983, which states:

    Sodomy -- any sexual intercourse regarded as abnormal, as between persons of the same sex, especially males, or between a person an an animal.
    This definition is subjective and incomplete. Abnormal needs to be defined and it only lists certain types of sexual activity it qualifies as abnormal.

    Here are some links with the definition of sodomy:

    From Wikipedia:

    Sodomy /ˈsɒdəmi/ is any non-penile/vaginal copulation-like act, such as oral or anal sex, or sex between a person and an animal.
    Sodomy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    From Dictionary.com:

    sod·om·y

    [sod-uh-mee] Show IPA
    noun 1. anal or oral copulation with a member of the opposite sex.

    2. copulation with a member of the same sex.

    3. bestiality

    Sodomy | Define Sodomy at Dictionary.com
    From Merriam-Webster:

    sod·omy

    noun \ˈsä-də-mē\



    Definition of SODOMY

    : anal or oral copulation with a member of the same or opposite sex; also : copulation with an animal

    Sodomy - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    So, no, you are incorrect.

    Your definition is incorrect. Your acceptance or lack thereof does not alter that.

    i admit that i worded the post poorly. my point is that heterosexuals are allowed to marry someone of the opposite sex, while homosexuals cannot marry someone of the same sex in most states. it's only a matter of time until the SCOTUS recognizes this as an equal protection issue. my hope is that this happens sooner rather than later.

    If someone wants to commit the disgusting sin of sodomy, nothing any dictionary or the Word of God says that will change their mind.

    So, captain, enjoy it while you can, because when you face God, you will regret your sinful choice.

    You always word your posts poorly. Think before you post. Review your post and make edits. How the hell are we supposed to have any kind of debate or discussion if it takes a whole ****ing page just to understand what you meant in one post? You really need to clean your posts up. I post from a phone and can't spell to save my life and I'm not that bad.
