I don't think the value of marriage is based on what it promotes, but the stability it creates in a relationship. If that relationship involves children or pets, they will benefit, but it doesn't really promote children or pets.
Pets can be a substitute for children. Does that mean pets promote "not" having a family? Only about half of all same-sex couples have children, so does that mean by allowing them to have recognized marriages, somehow promotes having children for the remaining 50%? Maybe maybe not, I don't think they are related.
This whole question sounds kind of insane, to me.

However it seems you are partaking in that discussion. Because you brought in scripture on that issues, I would ask that you bring in scripture that does show that homosexuality is wrong in both parts of the Bible, since it seems you are insultuous towards Christians, yet bring in scripture at the same time.
I was responding to Jerry's statements regarding Satan...he prefers to think of Satan in the "metaphorical" sense...but his belief in "scripture", most notably the New Int. Version doesn't support his contentions....if he wants to think of "Satan" in that sense...he must also think of "Jesus" in that sense.
