    Oh, so you don't know that same sex couples can create and raise families. Perhaps you should educate yourself on these issues before you choose to participate in them.

Don't confuse this ruling with anything resembling a breakdown of all marriage constraints.
    Interracial marriage, SSM, Polygamy and even incest being legally allowed are very well comparable. All bring about a major change to society and the established structure of the past several generations. All are or have been argued that they are immoral, against nature and bring "doom and destruction" upon society, that only sick and mentally deranged people would practice such things. All have had the examples of those who do wrong things within them used as arguments against them while the examples of the same wrongs being done within "normal" marriage are ignored or dismissed, at least as an argument. Yes each on e has a different foundation as to what it specifically deals with but in the end here is what it all boils down to and why they are indeed really all the same. They are all about the right to, as a consenting adult, to marry any other consenting adult(s) that one wishes, and have those bonds legally recognized.

    There's no reason to. Only a bitter gay rights activist would ask such a thing.

    Because gays don't have the "other half" component that kids need for effective parenting. At least polygamists have that.

    Same sex couples need to keep their business private. We'll stay out of their bedrooms if they will stay in them.

There is plenty of historical and scriptural precedent for polgyny.

    Homosexuality never has and never will be normal. We may “accept” it as a society, but it will always remain a sickness and an evil.
    Of course homosexuality is normal. It has been a part of the human race since the beginning. Polygamy is the result of male domination and female subjugation which is NEVER normal or acceptable in an enlightened society. The very reason that SSM is being accepted today is that many of us know these gay couples and they are just like hetero couples except for being of the same sex. Only the homophobic would see SSM as a huge change in the metrics of marriage.

    No, it is not, it never had been, and it never will be. It is a sickness and an evil, an abomination against God and against nature. It is a sick mockery of the sexual union that God intended to bind a man and his wife in a sacred intimacy. No amount of so-called “enlightenment” will ever change this fundamental, unalterable truth.

    My great-great grandfather, Edwin Rushton, would disagree with you, as would any who knew him and the society in which he lived.

    Which entirely misses the point of marriage. That the two partners are of opposite sexes, each bringing into the relationship their respective parts, is an essential, defining part of marriage. Without that, what you have is not, and cannot ever be, a marriage.

    Or anyone who actually understands and respects the value of marriage as an institution, and who does not wish to see it replaced with a sick mockery that undermines its true purpose. If that makes me “homophobic”, then so be it. I do not see it as a bad thing to be “phobic” about a blatant and destructive evil that threatens to undermine the very basis of the society in which I must live.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    If you believe God created man then you must believe he created homosexuals too. That's what makes your righteous indignation so amusing.

    Who made you God's spokesperson? I believe the biggest evil Jesus ever talked about was hatred. The words vomiting from your mouth are full of it. If homosexuals are so evil they will be oppressed in hell. Its not your business to oppress them on earth. Luckily in a few decades most of the people who think like you will be rotting in their graves, right alongside all the other bigots that have tried to oppress others in this country.

    Your comment has absolutely nothing to do with what I said. Complete diversion.
