    Thank you. It only took several pages to get the raw truth out of you.

    So Jerry, suppose you're a widower at age 50. You fall in love with a wonderful woman about your age. You propose. Do you intend to have kids?

    Then she says she's gone through menopause already. What do you say?

    27Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

    ~James 1:27
    If that's what gay 'marriage is about, then I am for gay marriage. If not, then I'm not.

    Yes I just hinted at a religious argument for gay marriage which doesn't misrepresent scripture in the least

    Jerry seems to be ignoring my posts. Wise move. So much for getting the truth out of him.

    I'm talking about civil marriage and you're talking about religious marriage and quoting scripture. We're on completely different topics.

    I'm on the Justice of the Peace or city hall and you're on a church wedding.

    I'm talking about changing the law Jerry.

    Ask your question in the next gay 'marriage thread, as a mod should be along shortly to close this one

    Right, and to get my vote/money/signature to change that law, you have to meet my religious requirement because there is no separation of Church from People.

    Funny how politics works.

    I don't want your vote Jerry. Just try and stay on the topic. I'm talking about civil marriage law and you're talking about religion.

    I'm talking about marriage as a complete sociological organism. The law is but one part of the greater institution.

    By definition in order to be an organism it must reproduce; ie. create offspring.

    A relationship which does not reproduce is not a social organism. It's something else. While that something else may be perfectly fine and valid in it's oun right, it's not a marriage as it doesn't do the things a marriage is supposed to do. It is as different as my left handedness is different.

    Re: DC City Council votes to legalize gay marriage

    "Marriage is a social union or legal contract between individuals that creates kinship. It is an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged by a variety of ways, depending on the culture or demographic. Such a union may also be called matrimony, while the ceremony that marks its beginning is usually called a wedding and the marital structure created is known as wedlock.

    People marry for many reasons, most often including one or more of the following: legal, social, emotional, economical, spiritual, and religious. These might include arranged marriages, family obligations, the legal establishment of a nuclear family unit, the legal protection of children and public declaration of love."
