    Liberal's main argument: gay marriage doesn't effect you.

    go tell it to this pizza guy who has been physically threatened and had to shut his business down. THAT'S how gay marriage effected him.
    and what if next week a jewish kosher deli refuses to cater a gay wedding and THEY are run out of town. Aren't THEY effected by gay marriage.

    just proves my point about liberal arguments: they are all disposable after they get what they want

Of course, in his day he was referring to men marrying women not man marrying man or woman marrying woman. Still from a moral standpoint we can ask all gays and lesbians to abstain (repent) from this immoral (sinful) behavior, but it's highly doubtful those who live such a lifestyle will "keep it in the closet" throughout their lives. And you really can't expect them to.

    Man is a social creature. We need to be around others. We need intimacy. It's just how we're built. The hope is that "man will leave his father and his mother's house, cleave to his wife and the two shall become one flesh," but sometimes that just doesn't happen...well, at least not in the way it was intended.
    I appreciate the response. I think that's a good basis for understanding if not acceptance, which is really all we should expect of each other on matters involving religion.

    In that spirit, what is relevant to a discussion on DP (as opposed to a Christianity forum) is the public policy response, and on that basis it seems to be unreasonable to ask that gays abstain from intimacy. First of all, any policy that expects that or demands it will fail because as you say, we are social creatures and loving and being loved would rank right behind water, food and shelter as the basics of a decent existence. So public policy should recognize that as a starting point, and when we do I don't see a downside to encouraging committed, monogamous, relationships. It costs my marriage nothing - it's a freebie, win-win, more happiness for those allowed to marry, no loss of happiness for anyone else. Bob and Frank marrying has the same effect on me as Newt's third marriage, and second to a mistress - nothing at all.

    It's a concept authoritarians cannot understand.
    It's a concept they are pretty able to understand, but unwilling to accept.

    That is the dumbest premise ever.
