    I believe same sex marriage and same sex relationships is a sin. However I support the right of homosexuals to enter into marriage contracts with each other. I voted other.

    There is no such thing as "gay marriage", the term 'marriage' describes a union between a man and a woman for the purpose of begetting children. This whole issue is just ridiculous.

    so according to this logic, sterile couples and couples who don't plan on having children should be denied the ability to marry as well. Amirite?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    1.) False and Opinion, It already exist your are misinformed.
    2.) False and Opinion, Since it already exists obviously again you are misinformed and even the dictionary disagrees.
    3.) False and Opinion, marriage has NOTHING to do with children unless the people that are married want it to. Government has no requirements for you to have or not have children.
    4.) Yes I agree your issues are ridiculous because they are false.

    Maybe you misunderstood, the debate is about addressing legal marriage and how gays should or should not have equal rights.

    This is a perfect example of someone who can think logically and separate personal religious beliefs for the greater good of a whole society. You would make an excellent politician, Digs.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: SSM (Same-sex marriage) is wrong because?

    Also on a side note to the people that say all legal marriage is wrong, you understand that is an entirely different debate right?

    Since marriage is here and that's what the debate about your issue is different.
    Also to claim its logical to end ONE government thing and put in place another and CLAIM less government is also irrational and illogical. Not only that but to claim that would be easier also makes no sense. How would it be easier to reclassify all marriages already on the books, end that law, figure out a new one, take the time to write it, pass it and then apply it to all past marriages as opposed to just changing the current laws and stating it can me same sex?

    Can anyone explain how it would be "less" government and easier?
    Lastly as soon as you mention marriage and religion you are also showing your hand.

    Well digs characterizes homosexuality as a sin, and his personal objections are clearly religion-based.

    If not religious-based, where is your opposition coming from?
