    At one point Dooble said that progressives turn into homosexuals. At that point I knew the thread would be flushed, but nope. It just keeps chugging along.

    So allowing two people of the same sex to obtain marriage privileges somehow destabilizes society? How, exactly? Homosexuals will be in relationships with or without marriage licenses. All you are doing is using government to deny them privileges all other couples get. Your notion that if two people in a long-term committed relationship receive government benefits society will deteriorate makes no sense whatsoever.

    Wrong. YOU don't get to change what marriage has been to American married couples and religious groups in society for over 200 years.
    Actually, less than 100 years ago marriage was only allowed between people of the same race. So marriage has meant many different things to American couples and religious groups over the past 200 years, and you would be foolish to think it has remained the same. Changes do happen, and you have no right to violate the constitutional right of equal protection to stop them.

    I'm not agreeing with the Catholic Church on how they view homosexuality and homosexual behavior. Your claim that the Catholic Church views homosexuality as a choice was simply false. Nothing more needs to be said.

    Did I not just spell it out for you? The math is not fuzzy, Lakryte.

    Actually, that's a wonderful story for people of the same race. It does nothing, however, for people with behavioral problems (homosexuals).

    I said Progressives evolve into homosexuals, Cardinal. There's a difference. I suspect it would be a very high honor for them, yes?

    How does that work, exactly? Total chaos is created by introducing non-traditional family units... how?

    Well, "total chaos," might be a bit too strong. I could care less if gays marry or whatever. It will not effect me one way or another. To be "total," would mean everyone would be messed up in the head about it. Loud as they may be, I submit there really are only a handful of people in our society that have this psychological defect.

    But, I am convinced that there are some people in this world that would let something like sanctioned gay marriage totally boggle their mind and send them into chaos.

    Many come across as unstable from the get go. I find people with that type of psyche would most likely let something send their world into chaos anyways. If not queers, it would just be something else. It was not meant for them to find contention. Such is life, I suppose.

    It works the same for them. Only they can choose to honor marriage. It makes no difference what others do or don't do. Frankly, have you seen how heterosexuals on the whole are treating marriage? Your argument loses a lot of credibility when you don't recognize the real problems. Let give you a list that effects marriage more than same sex ever will:

    1) we live longer, making til death a serious consideration.

    2) No one is dependent on the other any more. Both can be successful and fool around, and not just the male.

    3) Most people know people divorced, or grew up in divorced homes, or have anything but traditional home lives. The world has changed. And it doesn't matter how either of us feels about it. It's the reality.

    4) Technology has helped us to see things as instant, and relationships are slow to build, usually born of fire to cement the bond. Instant doesn't allow for that.

    Deal with those four before you start worrying over a couple of consenting not related adult humans sharing their love and commitment with one another.
