Give it a try."
    First, who do you think pays for my kid to go to school? Second, matters of sexuality shouldn't be taught at all in school. It's simply not their business. Third, you have no more right to decide what is appropriate to be taught to my children than I do to yours, if you had them.

    And that is why teen pregnancy, and STD's are rampant within high school students.

    The human (or mammal, even) anatomy alone is proof.
    No, it's not. Oh, wait. You're going to say that the anatomy is proof because of what these organs were designed for. Well, we know that these organs have several uses, but tell you what. Link me to the designer's website, or link me to some proof of the designer's intent and I'll take a look at it.

    Until then... no proof.

    I'm sure you know there has been no study attempting to validate heterosexuality
    Excellent. My point, exactly. Thank you for proving me correct.

    as even the most liberal know it's the natural order of our species and of every other mammal on earth.
    And I'm sure that every conservative like you knows that you just committed a naturalistic fallacy.

    There is simply no need to conduct such a study.
    Of course there is. Without it, there is no proof that heterosexuality is either genetic or physiological. I already asked, so I'll ask again. You are making an assertion. Link to ANY study that demonstrates the physiological or genetic basis for heterosexuality.

    I agree that homosexuality has existed as long as recorded history, but I also know that homosexual marriage has been illegal for just as long. The first historical reference to banning it dates back to the roman empire.
    And now an appeal to tradition logical fallacy. So, let's count this up. Your post contained two logical fallacies and no proof. Not so good, mac. Not so good.

    No, teen pregnancy and STDs are rampant because the majority of Americas kids spend about 9 hours a day with their parents, and they're asleep for 6-8 of those. What do you expect a kid to be like if he/she is raised by MTV?

The very same pro-SSM arguments would be used against you.
    I've debunked the "what about polygamists" slippery slope argument, several times in the past, Goshen. I'll go look for the post, if I need to, but in essence there is are two major differences. Polygamy is NOT a sexual orientation and though research has show the benefits of gay marriage, research has shown the opposite with plural marriage.

    This is absolutely ridiculous. I'll assume that you believe in evolution and natural selection. What would be the natural benefit to a portion of a species being born homosexual?

It's a little more complicated than a couple of guys holding hands.
    One can teach about the laws, rights, and issues of homosexuality without teaching morality. If GM becomes the law, and parents do not like it being taught in schools, there are other school choices.

    What research has shown that?? You are aware that in a good portion of the world, polygamy is legal and accepted right?

    Population control. Rearing of children who are orphaned.

    Just because it is legal and accepted doesn't mean it is beneficial. Slavery was legal and accepted for a long time... and still is in places. Doesn't mean it was beneficial.
