    It is a valid question. Not my problem this discussion is emotional to you, so you have to engage in ad hominem attacks when you are unable to answer basic questions.

    Do you believe marriage is a "civil right"?

    If gays get the special right to change the definition of what marriage is, why can't anyone else have the same right too?

    Libertarianism (or any other political philosophy for that matter) has nothing whatsoever to do with evolutionary biology. It is evident that you did not read my posts from the start.

That's why the components that result in homosexual orientation remain in the gene pool. They have survival value in various combinations.

    Your simplistic view is passee.
    This little tour de force of propaganda would be more persuasive with a link. I think your claims are just agit-prop.

    The majority of Americans understand that two people should be able to get married. And it's none of anyone else's business.

    It impacts no one else. That's the amazing part. That righties are so unbelievably selfish. All because of what you read in a book of fairy tales no less. Mind your own business and leave gay people alone. They should be able to be as miserable as the rest of us.

    my apologies .. you didn't mention bestiality .... however, you did state:


    If gays get to change the definition of marriage to fit what they want to marry, why can't anyone else? If marriage is a "civil right" then who gets denied their civil rights by not being allowed to marry what they want?
    perhaps you could enlighten me as to what you mean by "being allowed to marry what they want?"

    also, I am sorry if your understanding of the word "fantasy" is more limited than mine. Just for the record, in my dictionary, it is not limited to sexual fantasies .....
    Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.

    Mankind has never recognized the "union of 2 people" and called it marriage. Marriage is an institution that has always had a specific social and economic purpose and a specific definition. Even the Spartans recognized this and never had "Gay Marriage" even though homosexuality was rampant within their culture.

    Marriage has always meant man + woman. So since you specifically said "NOT recognizing the union of a CERTAIN GROUP OF CONSENTING ADULTS" we're back at step one

    Why are only gays allowed to change the definition of marriage to fit what they want and not any other sexual interest group? Consenting adults right?

    What do you interpret that to be?

    Marriage has always been man + woman. Why are only gays allowed to change the definition from man + woman to man + ? or woman + ?

    also, I am sorry if your understanding of the word "fantasy" is more limited than mine. Just for the record, in my dictionary, it is not limited to sexual fantasies .....
    Just more ad hominem attacks. Doesn't interest me.
