    Noting that queers fit in some of the definitions for normals is preposterous.....as are most, if not all of your assertions.

    No, this is not accurate. Procreation can happen whether marriage occurs or not. And marriage can happen whether procreation occurs or not. There is no need to procreate for marriage to exist. This is in general. Understand?

    If you mean statistically... like those who are left-handed or a genius, I agree. If you don't, then you are incorrect.

    Would you agree that it’s ok to tax gays with a “sin” tax? If not, how are they different from smokers or drinkers? If you claim it’s genetic, can you disprove a genetic tendency to smoke or drink?
    I feel like my rights are being trampled by those who want me to respect their rights to make private choices. If there’s a difference, what is it?

    Point out where I claimed it's genetic.

    I didn’t say you said it’s genetic. If you don’t think it’s genetic, how can you support discrimination and taxation against smokers and drinkers? I want to know how Gays are different from smokers in particular.

    I’m not accusing you of having any positions; just asking what you think the difference is.

    The difference between what and in what context? Please be clear with what you are asking.

    I thought I was clear. Let me try to clarify further. I think I have a right to smoke cigarettes or drink beer without being discriminated against via a sin tax. I want to know if you think a “sin tax” would be acceptable on gay married couples and if not, why?

    BTW, I'm not religious but I am logical.

    What is the "sin" of which you are referring with gay married couples.
