    Re: Gay Marriage, is it right to stop it?

    Here's the down and dirty of it, and no I don't care to respond to those of you who will troll me for this post.

    When it comes down to it, homosexuality is seen as some kind of malfunction or error because the sex drive is incongruent with the actual functions of the physical body parts. Gay man have the sexual attraction of hetero women, and gay women of hetero men.

    "Sexy" Smells Different for Gay, Straight Men, Study Says

    On an instinctive level, gay men are trying to impregnate other men and lesbian woman are trying to have the children of other women. This is why many traditional sources call homosexuality "confusion", as confusion doesn't always refer to your ability to reason.

    It is felt by many that gay marriage, by extension, will be just as incongruent, that it will mirror the biological error compelling people to it.

    Even if we went as far as to shake hands and agree that born-homosexuality were some kind of genetic error or deformity, so what? Other couples with genetic error or deformities are allowed to marry and they do just fine.

    If it can be demonstrated that gays as a demographic are a high-risk-of-divorce group, just like mixed race and mixed religion couples are, then let's make it harder for anyone to marry with the same pen stroke we give gays "marriage".

    The real problem is not who has what wrong with them, it's who can create relationships beneficial to society.

    If you look at any polls between 2008 and 2010 and at things like Prop 8 in Ca, and the amendments passed in Florida. The country is saying no to gay marriage on a wide scale.

    Scientific Polls...

    July 17, 2008 by Quinnipiac University, with 55 percent opposed, and 36 percent in favor.

    Dec 15, 2009 ABC News (58%) of Americans remained opposed to same-sex marriages, while the minority (36%) support them.

    CBS Poll: Changing Views On Gay Marriage - CBS News

    These polls on message boards are as reflective of Americans as Ron Paul's chances of wining a national election were reflected by the Internet.

    Most of the polls are plus or minus 3 to 4 percent.
    This is all pretty accurate. The polls in and of themselves do not demonstrate whether gay marriage would benefit or not benefit society, but it does demonstrate that the majority of folks in the US do not support it.

    Civil unions by the way have much broader support. If the moonbats screaming all or nothing would take it slow and just play the political game correctly (not reffering to anyone here). I am certain by 2015, gay marriage mite have been a reality.
    I've been saying this for years.

    A very interesting study. I've read the Swedish study that it referenced. Interestingly enough it points that there may be a biological link to sexual orientation.

    Oh, and btw, your assessment of what it means is completely absurd and the article theorizes nothing close to it.

    I've seen you argue this before. My position would be pretty similar.

    Ummm... Jerry... my post is post-quoted perfectly, as it almost always is. I check and double check because I'm very OCD about formatting.


    Ah.. never mind... I see the error. I changed my mind in the middle of quoting. Time to fix it.

    To me, and of course I could be wrong, this is someone who is against gay marriage trying to make it seem like they are truly for it, but because it could in some mixed up way be bad for society, they just can't be completely for it.

    Haven't read any studies, and don't care to cause this whole deal probably doesn't really need studies in my mind. It's a common sense issue.

    Truth is gays are just like everybody else except they fall for their own sex instead of the majority way of opposite sex. This means they can rear kids just as well as same sex couples and all it's variations.

    I don't believe in the "it takes a village" theory because most people are very territorial about their children, and don't really like interference from outside parties, including family members.

    Also, the majority of Americans who are against gay marriage is very small the way I'm seeing it, and as soon as the younger people take over the "majority" as far as voting goes, the gays will get "marriage", and it will be marriage not some wording that is equivalent, but different.
