Maybe people see homosexuals as being a drain on society because they don't procreate as much, which could be seen as harmful to societies struggling to survive.

Whatever it is, I'm glad homosexuals are being more accepted these days. Our American society is much better than it used to be.
HOw is it not fair to say it's not motivated by hatred? there are many cultural positions and beliefs that COME FROM a position of hate and are taught to an entire culture.

I'm opposed to marriage, Period!!!
there are many straight people who are opposed to marriage, yet straight people still have the right to get married.

try being opposed to YOUR marriage and leave everyone else's life alone

That's certainly a step in the right direction!
How do you figurte that from what I said...only " Man and Women " is what the wedlock is for...to abuse it, is to abuse God.

Who in their right mind abuses, opposes, denies, mocks and twists things of God?

The Anti Christ....the Anti or opposer of Eden, or God's word...that is what is being born not only in them...but the children...and why is that?...something to do with what presides over the wedlock perhaps?...Pedophiles cursing the seed? and the children? and the baptismal...and changing the words....I would imagine brings more twisted into it all....eh?

Are you reading me now....Only man and woman....only...only: = only...there is no other way to say it...so get it right...and the truth will be nearby.

Post #8, third paragraph from the bottom beginning with the word "hence".

If that isn't an approval of gay marriage I don't know what is.

I am firmly of the opinion that gay people have every right to be just as miserable as everyone else. Holy Headlock should be available to them.

Seriously, it is absurd for homosexuals not to have the right to marry. As for procreation, if there is one thing the world doesn't need, it is more people.

That's not entirely true... I mean, legalizing same-sex marriage would be an immediate injection of hundreds of millions of dollars (if not over a billion) into the economy, in addition to the permanent increase in demand for weddings: from goods and services directly related to the wedding industry, to gifts and other things needed for the ceremony. In turn, that would benefit the economy, provide some jobs, and the tax revenue would go to support fire and police coverage, education, infrastructure, transportation, etc.

But hey, if God (or people living a few thousand years ago pretending to be God with absolutely no concept of what life would be like in the 21st Century) say it's bad for society, then who are we to argue?

How does that even make any sense?.....

....isn't that like saying that 'i don't hate you but i'm not for you having any food'

or hitting someone in the face and saying you don't hate them.
Or 'I don't hate negroes, I just don't like the colour of their skin'.

Oh yeah!! We look at if we're struggling to survive don't we!!!! Rather, perhaps they should be applauded and rewarded for not contributing to an already overloaded population huh?

Indeed!

We'd get to a global population of 8,000,000,000 a lot sooner if all those selfish gays weren't refusing to do their share ...
