    Yeah, I saw that. Which, of course, makes it trolling, rather than an actual poll.

    Because marriage is a legal bond.

    If it is indeed a religious institution
    It's not a religious institution. Non-religious people get married all the time.

    Actually it is both.

    It may or may not have been either a solely religious or solely secular institution originally.

    At the current time, it is both, at least here in the USA.

    Edit: Which is not to say that it is not in some cases only one, or perhaps neither.

Further, the "book" perpetuates the myth that homosexuals are pedophiles. The book should be burned.

    That was one of the most disgusting posts I've seen at DP in a long while.

    I do beleive it is a valid question however. ---If the Law allows Same Sex people to get Married, my point is, that the Law should apply equally across the board, and not to show preferential treatment to people that profess to be gay. A persons sexual orientation, should have bearing on how they are covered by the law. A Neutered Male, should have the same rights as any other Person, under%2

    It does us good, to have inaccurate information thrown at us. --It teaches to be real careful about what we believe. I believe nothing I hear, little of what I read, and often question what I see. ---things are seldom what they seem.

    No matter how valid the question, your poll is not. And you DEvalue the question by posting such a thing.
