    Just out of curiosity, specifically what alternative interpretations can you make that are supported by the data?

    The article is written entirely by a Theodore Olson, a major figure in the Conservative legal movement, and the man who represented your hero, George W., when he was up against Gore for the presidency.

    Of course, admitting that you engage in confirmation bias really explains a lot about you.

    That's a combination of the 'rights' argument and the 'let's change what marriage is' argument, both of which I already reject.

    Huh? Did we read the same article? One of the major arguments he made was family, and as I recall, that is your bread and butter.

    This classical liberalism argument can also be made...

    Not "family" in a vague sense, but couples raising children specifically. If the couple does not reproduce, they are not a sociological organism and should not be elevated as such.

    Did you also notice how the author cited the "Creator" mentioned in the DoI while omitting the fact that that same "Creator" specifically forbids same-sex sex?

    Hypocrisy indeed.

    Do you not see the "strictly legal contract" argument when you see it?

    These are simply the same old tired out liberal arguments repackaged for a new gullible voting block.

    Re: New Jersey Senate Defeats Gay Marriage Bill

    Look, make gay marriage about raising children and I'm all for it.

    That's what hetero 'marriage was always about, so if gay 'marriage can be a force in refocusing society's use of marriage from just whatever feels good, and back to raising children, I would be one of gay 'marriage's strongest supporters.

    Run-on sentences FTW
