    So according to your own post,love between a man and a woman has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    And may I point out that you are still using arguments that those who oppose that those who opposed interracial marriages have used before to argue against homosexual marriages.
    not to mention gay marriage is 100% legal in places, just not everywhere so referring to ONE definition that suits one's own personal views is beyond uneducated and stupid.
    I can post a link that says same sex marriage is included, whats that mean

Thank you for helping to clarify this argument, Neomalthusian.
    Just because it says "one man and one woman" does not demonstrate that it is the rationale for marrying. I know what it says and have already acknowledged what it says. Legal definitions sometimes change though, and if this one changed, I wouldn't see that as harmful to anyone.

    Who said anything about rationale? I just told what actually IS. You've made a very significant contribution to this debate, Neo, so don't muss it up.

    You've repeatedly asserted that gender is the REASON for marrying. Rationale is a synonym for "reason."

    rationale |ˌra sh əˈnal|
    noun
    a set of reasons or a logical basis for a course of action or a particular belief

    You've told something that I asked you previously to support with legal terminology, and you've yet to do it. Specifically, I asked you to demonstrate that any legal definition of marriage suggests that gender is the reason people get married.

    yeah...I just don't see what the big deal is. if two dudes or two girls want to get married...let em, as long as they are held to the same responsibilities as well as rights as everyone else who gets married. I don't see why so many people are getting bent out of shape over something that will not affect them in any way. gays are already forming couples and doing all the things couple do, not allowing them to marry isn't going to stop them from being gay.

    it's like the retards in the town next to mine. they keep voting down liqour sales as if that is going to keep people from drinking in their podunk little town. never mind that in any direction you drive there is a liquor store just outside the city limits where residents can by all the booze they want.

    Homosexuality occurs naturally in nature.

    You sound bitter.
    I hope you aren't upset because you aren't allowed to force everyone to accept your religious beliefs.

    Of course the SC is caving in.
    No one has been able to mount an affective arguement against SSM that doesn't resort to Religious Doctrine,fearmongering,and outright disinformation.

    Didn't Washington State Voters recently voted to allow gay marriages in their state?

    so does cannibalism, incest, infanticide, etc, etc, etc. the 'it's natural' angle is the worst argument for homosexuality existant. not saying homosexuality is wrong or in any way equivalent to incest or cannibalism but the argument itself is flawed.

    my dog naturally eats horse **** in nature but that doesn't make it a good idea

    I clarified my stance in the next to this last post. Marriage is between a man and a woman. The Bible states it, our legal definition covers it, and most important of all, the God of Abraham wills it.

    Love, children, a family in general, are all crucial to marriage, and they all fall under the successful marriage relationship of a mother and father.
