    Because the principals of what marraige is based on in society has nothing to do with accepting gay marraige. Dissecting Christian principles has so much more to do with it.

    Welcome to the world of Catholicism.
    It may well be my memory that's faulty--it was well over 30 since I last took bible studies seriously--but I don't remember the Jesus' sacrifice ever being referred to as "a covenant" in my Catholic schooling. And I was sent to Catholic junior and high schools (where religious education was extensive and compulsory), attended Sunday school, sang in the church choir and attended mass at least twice a week. IIRC, the Catechism was the mainstay of everything we were taught about Christianity back in my day.

    This had nothing to do with it. The information was right in front of you and you still missed it. As for the rest, so what?

    This has nothing to with trying to be clever. It has to do with non Christians trying to tell Christan's what the Bible means or how to interpret it. I mean what do those of us who actually studied it (and still do) know, I mean really.

    It is not your memory, I was also raised a Catholic. They don't really teach you about the Bible, they teach you about being Catholic.

    Not that this makes them any less Christian, but they are more concerned with the earthly traditions they follow than biblical precedent.

    It's obvious that many, many people get married these days with no intent, or ability, to have children. They are older people - divorced or widowed. You can deny it all you want, but they are all around you.

    Ahh yes, well you're asking about me specifically so let's be clear up front that I have no empirical data establishing myself or my family as a representative sample of the greater population. You are asking for anecdote, which I'm happy to give, but let's keep in mind that this is just anecdote.
    Fair enough.

    My parents divorced when I was about 7. My father remarried for the expressed purpose of reforming the family (it had the opposite effect, in practice). My mother never re-married because she has always placed her personal freedom above anything which made her feel tied down. The only exception to that was her job, N.U.M.M.I....which thanks to Obama will be closing forever in March (hows that unemployment rate doing?)...hopefully I can convince her to move to SD, but I digress.
    I presume your mother is beyond child-bearing years, or at least has no intention to have children. So you would oppose her getting married, and would support a law making it illegal for her to do so. Right?

    Of the grandparent's I'm familiar with: my mother's parents divorced when my mother was a teen. My grandfather had a gambling habit which my grandmother finally couldn't live with any longer. Their divorce was sad but civil. My grandfather remand very much active in the family, tending the family home even though he had moved out with the divorce, being present for family events, and it was easy to see that my grandparents still had affection for each other.

    At the moment of his death he was surrounded by his children holding his hand, laying on bed he shared with his wife, in the family home everyone grew up in. I'm sure my grandmother would have been there were it not for very advanced alzheimers...frankly the doctors don't know how she's still alive.
    My father died of cancer in 2003, with my mom tending to him at home. She's post-menopausal and all her kids are grown and moved out.

    Yet she has the legal right to remarry. She may do so, like many thousands of other people in her situation. Yet you claim that marriage is still only about children, and you want to enforce your claim by making it illegal for her to get married again.

    Since the "No" vote is the one favored by the conservatives, I must conclude that some conservatives have attempted to skew this poll.

    Now, I'm not sure if there is anyone on this forum responsible for this but if so, what did you prove? That you can mess with the poll to attempt to get folks to believe that your position is in the majority here at DP? Well guess what... YOU FAILED. Just made your position look worse and gave it a pathetic, cheating edge.

    Actually Navy was correct, his left-wing, big-governemnt friends were stuffing the ballot.

    He just didn't realize he was finally, and inadvertently, admitting his left-wing nature.
