    Of course, that's a topic for a whole other thread, so I'll stop there.
    Especially when you are debating with one who subscribes to Kant and not Hume.

    Re: For those who support gay marriage

    It’s none of my business what type of relationships consenting adults want to follow. It’s none of the governments business either. I would like to highlight – consenting adults.

    I don't see how it's any of my business. If you want to talk about legal ramifications of same sex marriage. Well we didn't allow Utah into the union without first forbidding polygamy. I think that speaks volumes for precedent.

    Based on homosexuality, maybe we can expel much of california from the union?

    None of these can show benefits to the family, children, the human condition, or the government.

    Could you link us to the government document that outlines it's reasons for support of ANY type of marriage. Then explain why the government should be involved in the private life of it's adult citizens.

    The state of being gay should be defined like it truely is...

    If everyone on the planet suddenly became gay then humans would be extinct in about 100 yrs.

    This alone is enough to show that being gay is a physical/mental defect and not to be promoted in the courts or schools but studied to better understand this flaw in human nature for the reproductively challenged.
    Did you type this in a mindless stupor? You don't see the inherent problem with this comment? Let me help you:

    If everyone on the planet suddenly chopped off their heads humans would be extinct instantly. The point being that this would never happen and is therefore a ridiculously stupid thing to say. Similarly, everyone on the planet is not going to suddenly become gay.

    I thought about that option, but felt that making the poll multiple choice instead would open the way for a broader discussion--e.g., if one wished to make a case for polygamy but not polyandry, or vice versa.

    I wasn't going to comment on this, but as others have, silence no longer seems prudent...

    That is your right.

    Given that no one has fully documented and mapped the whole of personality, that definition is decidedly beyond the realm of current human knowledge. Neither you nor anyone else has such a definition to offer up, and any assertion to the contrary is patently false and incorrect.

    Tautologous and irrelevant. There is about as much probability of that happening as the whole of Congress joining hands and singing "We are the world."

    I technically agree that specific behaviors of any kind should not be promoted by the courts or the schools as a rule; individual choice is always the preeminent civic virtue.

    However, the assertion that homosexuality is either a physical or mental defect is odious, detestable, and has no place in civilized discourse.

    Your assertion is wrong. Period. End of Sentence. End of discussion.

    1) I asked the question first. Be my guest in attempting to respond to it.

    2) When you can prove a negative, one like "God does not exist", I'll give it a go. Until then, your question is irrelevant.

    There is plenty of research that shows that married couples are healthier, happier, and the children of married couples function better. Plenty.
