    I never said anything otherwise.

    Can you show the right to give benefits and rights to some but not to others in the constitution?

    That won't stop the U.S. Supreme Court from legalizing it all over the USA. Wait and see.

    That's exactly what the ISIS Muslims say that they are doing. Do you support people like that?

    When the constitution was written in the late 1700's marriage wasn't a concern of the government. Marriages were granted by churches. State issued marriage licenses didn't become a function of government until the early 1900's.
    The authors of the constitution had no idea that such a thing would ever be considered.


    The authors of the constitution didn't know about a lot of things.

    Many things have changed and more will change in the future.

    I say "...in your estimation" because, as someone else said in another thread, not all gay people are willing to admit it (for reasons of their own), so the best stats we have are most likely incomplete.

    Note also, bi-sexual, bi-curious, etc., are not included in the question. Straight (pun only slightly intended ) gay only.
    Well, I brought donuts into the office this morning. Based on a survey of my immediate surroundings, I'd say everyone is happy as a clams. Can I say 100% of the people in my office right now are gay?

    Are you including all those who have disordered desires exclusively for their own sex, or only to those who actually act on their desires and engage in perverted acts?

    The most recent Gallup poll ( Special Report: 3.4% of U.S. Adults Identify as LGBT ) presents that 3.4% identify as L,G,B, and T in total.

    Considering the private nature of this poll and the current media fame given the oxymoronic "gay marriage" flap, the "in the closet factor" couldn't be more than half this number, or another 1.7% at most.

    Thus, at most, I'd estimate about 5 percent of the population identify as L,G,B, and T in total, with about a quarter of that identifying as L or G (B being the largest group), or about 1.25 percent of the population is L or G in total.

    This is in keeping with what we'd expect from any specific abnormally occurring and problematic gestational etiology, which most always maxes out at about 6 percent occurrence per, some maxing out under 6 percent occurrence per.

    What's interesting in the poll is that the percentage occurrence for Black, Hispanic, and Asian is considerably proportionally higher than for Non-Hispanic White.

    But that makes sense, not because the former three are more likely to be "honest" about it in a poll than the latter one, but because it makes total sense that there'd be a higher occurrence in minority populations due to lower economic conditions which thus creates higher stress, specific biological reaction to higher stress in the mother being scientifically implicated as the gestational epigenetic cause of LGBT in the offspring.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    Which, if you think about it, is actually kind of a pity. The words I've always heard attributed to Jesus are almost invariably messages of inclusion, tolerance, and restraint from the rush to judgment.
