    Right, that's a theocracy. Replacing the priesthood with a legislative body to disguise the process is mere deception.

    Defining sex as a marriage between a male and a female, the joining of opposite sexes, is a matter of common sense more than "divine law".
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Sure, they do, Human beings wrote the stories in the bible and other religious texts. You cannot prove YOUR religious text is divine and someone else's is not.

    Same to you!

    Ah yes, the common sense argument. Those against interracial marriage used the "common sense" argument when saying that blacks should marry blacks and whites should marry whites.
