    By the way, you're in the minority now. The minority who thinks same-sex marriage should be illegal. You also still haven't explained how two dudes getting married even affects you at all, let alone harms you somehow.
    Social Norm is not a vague concept.

    Of course it's your MO. You spew absurdity, misrepresentation, and stupid comments, and then, when confronted, you scamper away in a cowardly fashion. It's why I enjoy confronting you. I KNOW all I have to do is turn up the heat and you will scatter like leaves in the wind.

First of all, you can kill whoever you choose to if you actually are capable of doing it, but that doesn't mean that you can guarantee that you will not face some form of punishment, either from society or from the family/friends of the deceased. On top of that, I highly doubt that God would be very happy with you killing a person just because they were a man who wanted to marry another man or a woman who wanted to marry another woman. Last time I looked, that was definitely not what Jesus would do.

    Secondly, I believe that most people have certain agreements on certain right and wrong things. This generally leads to what becomes laws for a society.

    The thing about these arguments is that some of us base laws off of the morality that is set down in the US Constitution, which states that every person should have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. By this phrase is how I base my interpretation of what laws should impose upon the population. It requires a very simple test. Do the actions of a person or group affect someone else's right to life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness in a tangible way? Essentially, does the action cause harm to another person or their property without due cause? Does the action keep someone captive in some way without due process? These things should be what causes laws to be made. Now sometimes one person's liberties have to be weighed against another person's liberties to determine which one is most important. That is what we have courts for.
    Why should anyone BE PUNISHED if there are no ABSOLUTE RIGHTS OR WRONGS, everyone....just like the animal they evolved from determines what is right or wrong. Make up your mind...which side of the road do you wish to traverse, I'll move over, and ALLOW you...to get back to WEIGHING the morality that DOES NOT EXIST.

    Normal, Societal Acts defined by the MAJORITY position held within any population. Deviant: Any act that deviates from the NORMS established by society. IF queer eye for the straight were indeed NORMAL, the majority of society would be practicing Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and heterosexuality would be the deviant position. Its not rocket science....just like Round pegs do not go into Square holes..unless some unnatural alterations takes place. But, if you continue to the request ABSOLUTION from the majority of society, its best to get your PRIEST involved.

    I could care less what deviant acts of sex you wish to engage upon your neighbor as long as its done in the privacy of your little world. But please....do not go public with your bed room antics and then attempt to SCREAM that someone is invading your privacy. Funny as Hell. Just like ALL THE THREADS that are started....you bring up the subject...but only those that will grant you absolution are allowed to retort...if someone points out the absurdity of the situation, of course they are BIGOTS. Again...funny as hell.
