    It may be that Jesus really hated gay people, he just didn't talk about it.

    While there is no difference in sin level it is obvious that God loves fat Christians and yet hates gay Christians.

    I voted "other." Correlation doesn't equal causation, but in this case legalizing SSM is correlative of our declining sexual ethics and morals as a country which also correlates to people no longer getting married and choosing to just have sex with their partner without tying the knot and never seeing a need to tie the knot. More and more people don't see anything wrong with homosexual sex, premarital sex or couples cohabitation among other things.

    What "lesser status"? Are you suggesting that "Holy Matrimony" is a higher status than "civil union"? If so I totally agree with you but then I'd also suggest that regulating it through the law is a direct violation of the 1st Amendment.

    How do you properly consummate? With pinkies extended and to bow or curtsey afterwards?

    That doesn't change the fact that the act itself contradicts nature.

    You know what consummation is and I'm not going to explain it to you.

    No, I was asking what "proper" consummation is.

    I don't think love has anything to do with it legally actually.

    why does marriage have to be about love? Most of the world it's a business/political/social transaction.

    I am saying this because when people say the love argument... it's sole purpose is just to appeal to emotions and has nothing to do with it.
