You were never prevented from getting married based on sex.

Maybe you should tell that to my state legislature that put it into the state constitution that you must be of specific sexes in order to get a marriage licence together.

You are a...um...credit...yeah, a credit to your sub-sect of Christianity.

You drive sheep away from your pen and I thank you.

It's all about 'normalizing' homosexuality...
'They' want to have their own group to be recognized separately.


I don't know about anybody else, but I didn't wake up one day and decide I wanted to like people of the opposite sex.
I don't believe it's a 'choice' to be gay. It, to me, wasn't a choice to be straight... (to clarify, I am a straight man 56 years old married.)

POPCORN, get your POPCORN..enjoy watching the dead horse take yet another beating as the evangelicals continue their HATE the SIN, LOVE the SINNER fallacy...and use scripture to rationalize HATE and OPPRESSION based on diversity and then demonstrate their superiority by slinging scripture that supports their hate even as Jesus wined and dined the greatest SINNERS on the planet during His ministry..

I just don't understand why the gay community insist having the term "marriage."
The state officiates marriages. It's always been this way, thus it's an issue of civil rights.

And I'm aware that back in the days of monarchs, religious leaders married people, but that was also when separation of church and state did not exist. It was still the state. And either way, it's actually logically impossible to separate religious issues from civil ones.
