    Marriage is not about Equality™. Marriage is about the raising and socializing of children. Everything else a marriage does serves that purpose. If you're not raising children, you have no business being married whether your gay or not. If you are raising a child, then perhaps the argument can be made that the sin of your homosexuality is justified through serving a higher purpose.

    If you're not raising a child then your relationship doesn't affect me and your actions are between you and God alone.

    It may surprise you that I strongly support gays serving openly in the military. Non of my support comes from a notion of equality, however. Just as marriage is not about equality, neither is the military about equality. The military is about defending the nation's interests, and it is my opinion that the military is harmed when it alienates the pool of talent in homosexuals.
    Equality under the law, isn't just a "political buzz phrase", and that unless the government can provide a compelling reason to deny SSM, then they can't deny it. And they don't have one.

    You could take any group of people and find the self-righteous.

    Then why does He tell you one thing, and me another?

    Do you know that you have anti-SSM to thank for the eventuality of SSM legalization? Anti-SSM has don more to legalize gay-marriage than pro-SSM could ever claim.

    Epic fail for the anti-SSM group then.

    The Lord is in each and every one of us... that is the idea of God, not some guy telling you what to think. We are granted to ability to think for ourselves and interpret our own meanings of love and compassion.

    No, not all chess pieces are equal. Terrible analogy.

    That's a very protestant take on theology.
    "The crisis will end when fear changes sides" - Pablo Iglesias Turrión

    "Austerity is used as a cover to reconfigure society and increase inequality and injustice." - Jeremy Corbyn
