    Second, you can run a simple experiment. Take random pairs of living creatures, give them a hotel room to go screw, and observe how many pregnancies result after a large number of trials. You have probably already inferred from observations that two opposite sex humans, regardless of race, are capable. Similarly, a beagle can procreate with a poodle of the opposite sex. However, a same sex pair or the girl crazy enough to test riding a horse the wrong way will result in absolutely zero kids. From this experiment, you can conclude that a penis was meant to be paired with a vagina and, moreover, within a species.

    Lastly, I like to commonly say people are getting so open-minded that their brains are starting to fall out. The words freedom and right are exaggerated. Many have started to notice the sense of entitlement growing in the minds of the younger generation, and it's not a side effect of the steroids put in the animals we eat. The more the rubber band gets stretched, the easier it will be to stretch until it breaks. Many have already made they point, if homosexuals want marriage then why can't the others have their desired polygamy? We've become a society like little kids crying when we see somebody else with something we don't have. The next time you're about to start complaining about the way something is, think about the reasoning behind why it is how it is. Occam's razor comes in handy. This is how you determine what is or is not meant to be changed.
    Religion: There are parts in Old Testament (which is where religious people get their arguments from) that allow people to sell one another into slavery. Are you gonna start obeying that as well? Also interpretation of such verses is questionable. (BBC NEWS | UK | Magazine | What does the Bible actually say about being gay?)

    Science: The science part you mentioned wasn't science per se, but more biology. Anywho, homosexuality can be seen in the animal kingdom (1,500 animal species practice homosexuality)

    Not to mention (once again) that the ability or inability to have a child has NEVER been a condition on which marriage has been decided.

    Sex is such a tiny part of a relationship. I'm always intrigued as to why there's so much emphasis on sex when it comes to this issue.

    Do straight people think gay people have sex about 9 million times more often than other folks?

    A marriage is so much more than sex.

    A marriage is so much more than having children.

    Neither one of these things should be a determining factor when it comes to granting people the rights and benefits (and in some cases difficulties) of marriage.

    You are literally arguing semantics.

    In some cases, I do in fact support slavery. If you've been convicted of a crime/sin which deserves life imprisonment then you can either make yourself of some worth to this world and work as ordered, or we can put you to death. If others are going to pay to keep you alive then you should have to earn it. I also want welfare and unemployment to require undesirable labor, which many would describe as slavery, in order to enforce efforts to become independent.

    Are you serious? Biology is a field of science. The experimentation I described is, in fact, known as the scientific method. I don't care if you've had a dog try to hump your leg and think that's gay. Studies of human nature and the animal kingdom show that attraction to the opposite sex is what's natural, and this is easily explained by the instinct to procreate.

    Why don't you ever link any sources? Do you understand that your opinion doesn't mean very much?

    No facts have been presented, my friend. Besides, I'm not sure you have the attention span to wait.
