    Gee capt curious just when did you do that? Would that be that list of studies that seemed to arrive at the same eerily similar findings, gay parents, all gay parents raise children superior in every way to the children raised in two parent homes? Repeatable results in a petrie dish is one thing but just when did any study of human behavior provides such splendidly pristine results?



    Several of us already destroyed Schumm's study in another thread about two weeks ago. His study is not credible.
    Pardon me, you destroyed schumm's study......really? Ok, you approve of those studies that support your bias and "destroy" those that don't support them. I suppose it would just be plain bad form to simply disagree with your assertion you have "destroyed" schumm's study. I'll simply have to take your word schumm's study is.........not credible.

    Actually, what I've noticed is that conservatives like you tend to make ridiculous claims that are just opinions and try to pass them off as facts. Which is precisely what you have been doing in this thread... whereas the liberals have been producing research. Now... how about dispensing with the ridiculous partisan hackery and discuss the topic, honestly. Oh... and btw... Zyphlin is no liberal. Further fail for you.
    You mean unlike telling me you've destroyed schumm's study and it isn't credible because.........you said so? I'm sorry capt curious but your hypocracy is showing. I am well aware shumm's study isn't popular but I hardly think your opinion qualifies as fact in this case. I have some rather serious doubts about those studies you've provided. That amounts to my opinion, not fact. I believe you to be in the same boat as I, mearly providing an opinion based on research data neither of us actually posses. I told you to expect this.

    Destroyed is a proper adjective for what CC did to that study in this thread.

    With that said, length of relationship is meaningless and with 1 & 2 above it makes that weak argument even more meaningless.
    As I've already stated "many times" in this thread if you don't see the institution of marriage as requiring monogamy and the new york times article supports this assertion you will not change a culture of promiscuity. In point of fact this article in the family research council makes the same assertion as the new york times article. In regards to hetero v homosexual relationship lengths this article indicates;source

    In The Sexual Organization of the City, University of Chicago sociologist Edward Laumann argues that "typical gay city inhabitants spend most of their adult lives in 'transactional' relationships, or short-term commitments of less than six months."[5]

    A study of homosexual men in the Netherlands published in the journal AIDS found that the "duration of steady partnerships" was 1.5 years.[6]

    In his study of male homosexuality in Western Sexuality: Practice and Precept in Past and Present Times, Pollak found that "few homosexual relationships last longer than two years, with many men reporting hundreds of lifetime partners."[7]

    In Male and Female Homosexuality, Saghir and Robins found that the average male homosexual live-in relationship lasts between two and three years.[8].......
    No, you will not approve of the source but it's a very complete article and they do reference studies and provide references. If you would like I can provide articles referencing studies indicating heterosexual relationships last considerably longer.

    There is only straight marriage, so called same sex "marriage" is Sin against God!

    BTW purpose of every marriage is producing of children, so called same sex "marriage" can produce nothing except "pride parades" and political scandals.

    You made me watch rachel maddow. Now I hate you. Just what the hell does that video have to do with the primary function of marriage? What does it have to do with gay marriage? Just what does that have to do with capt curious destroying shrumm's study?

    Yeah but the Bible says nothing about him making Bob and Tom. Or are all those Bob's and Tom's out there non-existant? Or are Christians now saying that God did not create every single one of us? (our spirits/souls whatever)

    According to a book which was put together by the Council of Trent which while they were talking about what to put in it the main rule that they had was that no one could be prosecuted for heresy while they were putting together the Bible. Hmm....

    The only time that marriage has actually had the purpose of producing children was when royalty wanted to secure someones alliegence or make thier claim on royalty as great as possible. Other than that it was about property for countless centuries long before the Church ever got involved. It wasn't even until 1563AD that the Council of Trent (yep, them again) declared that all marriages should be done in the presence of a priest. A mere 448 years ago. And even then it was just about "not living in sin".

    Who the hell cares? Keep your god in your church and out of the government. No one is arguing in favor of religious same sex marriage. Secular marriage is the subject of discussion here.

    I agree, marriages without children should be annulled, and sterile people shouldn't be allowed to marry.
