If you want to argue that an 8 year old or 12 year old is competent for legal purposes, you are welcome to try bringing that argument in a legal setting.

It isn't just a smoke screen, it HAS been litigated. Further, it's actually true, objectively.

I think it's extremely difficult, if not impossible, to use the U.S. Constitution to argue against gay marriage. Arguing on "tradition" is silly and ineffective because that's irrelevant to the Constitution. If you want to make a common good argument, then go right ahead, but that's highly debatable as to its validity.
No, you have no consistent argument based on the Constitution. I keep pointing that out and you keep pretending you do. You have to MAKE one, first.

Isn't it funny, that you're now making something up to make this personal. I have stated ONLY that I am on one side of an argument, but as of yet, haven't stated ANY argument of my own, merely pointed out that nobody has a consistent argument. There is NO constitutional issue involved in gay marriage, either to require or forbid it. It isn't a matter of rights, either, since marriage is not an individual right.

Funny how you assume certain things, and then make up arguments as if they were true.

Sure, The gays are working overtime to get sexual deviancy in an acceptable light. It is what it is at the core of it. It is a sexual relationship between two same sex people.. as I said before. A man can love another man , a woman can love another woman , but when it crosses the line into a sexual relationship it is deviant behavior.

The bible tells the truth about sinful man.

Inhospitality was the crime of Sodom. It's been that way forever.

Ezekiel 16:49 "'Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

Stop making Christians look ridiculous. You're doing no one a service with your posts.
What a stetch.. is that what the gays are doing now.. perverting the word of God too?

This country was founded on moral principles. Are you saying all unreligious people are immoral and should be. Even mainstream Americans know right from wrong. Their morals do not accept homosexuality as normal or acceptable in society.

Yes it was. However; there is separation of church and state in this country. As a person who does have faith, I sure as Hell don't want someone elses twisted interpretation of their religion influencing the politics in this country. Here is a thought. How about you worry about your own morality and getting right with God yourself instead of worrying about what others do?
