“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

There are lots of ways to be married. There are married people in polyamorous or open relationships. That isn't "traditional" by your definition. But they're still married, aren't they?
What's so important about the word "marriage?" The thing is, "traditional" marriage has meant many different things over the years.
It used to be basically a business contract of selling a woman from the father to the husband. It could involve multiple wives. At one point, that was "traditional." And today, married people have all kinds of different lifestyles.
So really, your idea of "traditional" marriage is not traditional at all. It's quite modern, in fact.

Depends on age really.
Some people are just old fashioned and not aware that current science believe sexual orientation is not a choice. I forgive those folks.
the rest of bigots and homophobes. IMO, ignorant people embracing a twisted version of Christianity.
stating you are in favor of the made up term "traditional marriage" alone doesnt make you a bigot IMO.
because you are only saying you simply "favor" it and also because traditional marriage is hogwash
also for example what if a person favors traditional marriage but doesnt want to stop others from having it?
now if you are actively trying to stop equal gay rights or donating money to stop it, then yes IMO you are a bigot.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

When you see the word 'wife' in the bible, that's what you should know it means.
So save the 'traditional marriage' nonsense for people who don't know their History of Western Civ.
50 years ago, blacks couldn't marry whites. That was the 'tradition'.
BTW - Appeal to Tradition is logical fallacy.
