Sure, in the bedroom it sure is most likely a "different position".

Gay Marriage is NOT GOD approved imo.

I don't believe in GAY/Same SEX marriage - respectfully in kind that's my opinion.
So you speak for god? You have his number, or do you hear his voice in your head? I think it is arogant for anyone to declare what any god thinks or says, as if they are so important, that god has them on speed dial. If a gay person is a believer in his/her god and their god loves them as they are, who are you or any one to say that god does not approve of gays or gay marriage? Marriage is a manmade construct because it is not required for any other reason than to legally bind a couple, it is not needed to reproduce or form a commitment.

When did this start happening?
1. Elderly couples can not conceive, yet can marry.
2. Sterile couples can not conceive, yet can marry.
3. Some state laws require that the couple can NOT conceive in order to get married.
4. There is no law stating you must be able to conceive through intercourse to be legally married.
5. There is no law at all that requires conception to get legally married.

So why shouldn't same sex couples be allowed to legally marry?

It's worse than that. Who signed DOMA into law? Bill Clinton. Harry Reid voted for it.

The Democrats are simply exploiting gay people for votes. When gay marriage wasn't popular, they were all for using government to ban it. Now that it has gained popularity, the very same people - not just other people in the same party, but literally the very same exact people - are all for declaring the same thing they themselves banned to be a constitutional right.

They don't give a hill of beans about the rights of gay people. They just want power and they will pander whichever way the wind is blowing to get the votes to put themselves into office.

How about you explain the virtue of legally recognizing straights being married? You can get married in your church and just accept that, but why must you have the federal government recognize your marriage? Again, think about it, we want marriage for the same reasons that straight people do? So, you know why you got married? Fine that is your answer. Stop being thick headed and try opening your mind.

They are of the same sex and marriage is not going to clean up their deviant behavior .

Any particular reason people should consider what YOUR God approves of? My God says it's fine.

If you believe in god, you have to believe he gave us our own free will to choose how we want to live our life.

They will also use justification for legalizing it by saying things that like "Society has evolved and has moved beyond what the people of the early 21 century thought was moral."
Ewww, how many people actually want to marry their brother or sister? The only time I can see that possibly happening is if they never knew each other till they were adults. And polygamy involves one man, ONE MAN, possessing as many wives as he pleases, those wives have no say in the other wife he marries, they do not love that other woman or marry her. There could be ten wives, one husband, not one of those wives are married to each other. Polygamy is a legal nightmare compared to two individuals getting married, which is cut and dry.
