    Yes, we live in a society that requires proof. Genesis was written over 2,000 years (by Moses) after the events occured, so it can not be used as historical evidence. The first marriage recorded was around 2300 BC, which is about 700 years before Moses was born.

    Religion didn't even become involved in marriage until the catholics came along and absorbed it. That is the first time a priest was required for a marriage.

    Lastly, assuming you guys did invent it and you somehow hold a patent on it, why do you only want to deny gays the right to it? Shouldn't you believe atheists, muslims, buddhists and all other non-christians shouldn't be allowed to marry either? Why do they get to use your thing?

    They are using the same word we all use for a couple who wants their relationship acknowledged. They are married, whether it be by priest, justice of the piece or a storm trooper. Marriage is a common word for union. It also happens to be one of the Christian sacraments. By using the word, it does not imply that you are specifically talking about Christianity.

    You may be interested to know that global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of Pirates since the 1800s. For your interest, I have included a graph of the approximate number of pirates versus the average global temperature over the last 200 years. As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! We have history books today that were written years after the fact yet accept those as valid. What a stupid argument.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    it is accuarte to say that the bible contains equal amounts of fact, history, and pizza.

    For one that is a stupid argument because your stupid dog (if you can call a chihuahua that) isn't that old.

    Your ignorance is glaring.

    Where did the Sacrament of Marriage come from? Who can give the Sacrament of Marriage? Careful here. This is well documented.
