    So, if the only pre-qualifier is a willingness to raise children, then you have no problem with gay marriage?

    As long as gay and straight couples sign a legal document that they will raise children -- they're in like flynn.

    Correct?

    Really? Where is the case law that makes that determination? I'd like to see it.

    Right.

    That's why I keep asking for data on how many gays are actually raising children.

    Those that aren't: screw off. I don't give a **** about your "rights" or your "equality" because if your not raising children (adoption counts, imo) then you have no business even asking for the legal buffs.

    "Marriage is a strictly legal contract between consenting adults"..bull ****ing ****. Marriage is not a mere "contract", marriage is about forming and maintaining the family. If you're not down with that, fine, go live your life, but you don't deserve a "marriage" in the eyes of the law when your not doing what the law is there to support.

    Same with heteros. If the state decides to come in and say "ok,, we'll marry you, but your marriage is void if you don't have children in, say, 5 years"...I'm not going to stand in the state's way.

    Show me a demographic where a significant number of brothers and sisters are adopting children out of the system and I'll support incest.

    That data is irrelevant. It is an arbitrary requirement that YOU attach to the issue which the law doesn't. There is no requirement nor even interest that child rearing comes along with marriage certificates.
