    The point I was making is pretty clear, and that is: marriage by definition is ONE MAN + ONE WOMAN. Arguing that the definition of marriage also includes ONE MAN + ONE MAN is as absurd as saying that marriage also includes ONE DOG + ONE DOG. In both contexts, you are fundamentally changing the definition of the institution, which defeats the purpose for the institution in the first instance. So why not start recognizing marriages between flowers, rats, dogs and other living things?

    The liberal idiocy about "consenting, human adults" is a red herring. Granted it would be fascistic to argue that consenting human adults couldn't engage in any relationship or association they wish; conservatives do not argue this. It is not fascistic, however, to argue that the entire definition of marriage shouldn't be changed because liberals decide to introduce the absurdity of homosexual marriage as a constitutional right.

    To argue that believing that marriage between an man and a man is fundamentally flawed is fascistic, is as idiotic as arguing that believing a flat-screen TV should be used as a mattress is fascistic. Gays are free to be gay, and they are free to engage in the most disgusting homosexual relations to their full pleasure. I think it is indescribably immoral, but I think passing laws banning sodomy is a waste of governmental resources and would be very hard to enforce, but to argue that marriage ought to be destroyed in order to include gays is manifestly preposterously, and is the kind of absurdity that can only be promulgated by liberals.

    I don't want to bother arguing with you because it's pointless and a waste of time, but I just look at the things you post...

    Yes their is. To bad you do not know the difference.
    Too bad you don't know the difference between "new" and "knew," "their" and "there," or "to" and "too."
    Also, you're not a "Christin," you're a "Christian."

    1 person tried to say it was unnatural. I then said that is ridicules. And is no more rational than using animals as a standard to judge humans.

    So you can leave the homophone crap at home, thanks.
    Um, actually, although I haven't contributed to the latter part of the discussion, I have been following it closely. Closely enough to have spotted that you only came into the "natural" debate quite a while after it was declared unnatural and only in response to winston53660's post about it occurring in nature. If you said the the "unnatural" claims were ridiculous, I missed it. Point me to that post and I'll apologise.

    There are countries where same sex marriage is legal. Are there any where it is legal only for gay people...specifically?

    If your more backward states ever catch up with the developed world and allow same sex marriage, what's to stop you from marrying another male?

    Gay people should take this tax break issue up though, as leverage to support the cause..

    My whole point is trying to use animals who do not have our ability to reason etc for or against homosexuality is absurd.

    The problem here is people are viewing anything I say in tunnel vision.

    I am not anti gay, I am not against gays having the same rights as married couples in a Civil Union. I am against it being called marraige. Two men or women do not make a marraige as far as I am concerned. Never has, never will. Until God comes down to tell me personally it is OK, I will not support it or the lifestyle, period.
    How are you only against gay marriage if you're simply going by what you think God wants?
    You should be completely against any homosexual behavior. Doesn't it say in that book something like, "A man should not lie with another man as he lies with a woman for that is detestable?"
    I don't agree with that, but why don't you?
    If you think that's okay, then why can't they just get married and call it that?
    If the government recognizes it as a marriage, that doesn't reflect on you, personally, right? It doesn't mean that you or other Christians are condoning that "sin."

    Has God come down personally to tell you it is not ok?

    Or to tell you what marriage should be?

    Religious definitions are a human construct. A crowd of guys came up with them and wrote them down. Now, they're telling you how to live, although they don't know you or your life and had no idea how your world would be. Good luck with that.

    Why not? A man and a woman who aren't in love and never have sex can get married too.
