The rights of gays are not being abridged. They have unions which gives them all the benefits, are they not happy? Marriage is just simply between a man and a woman. Its just that simple. Gay marriage is an oxymoron.

Why cant they understand that if they are trying so hard to be accepted as normal people (heterosexual) they need to abandon their gay behaviors and become hetero...Simple.

Why don't you become homo and start sleeping with the same sex and see how easy that is.

Because that's basically what you are asking gay's to do vice-versa.

Because scientifically it has not been proven that homosexuality is beneficial for the species. Show me an article from Nature or Science that proves that homosexuality is beneficial for the species? I can only think of population control, nothing else. Or an article in those two magazines that demonstrates the "gay gene"


Also I was not born gay, as was anybody else. There is no proof of that yet. Until there is, homosexuality is deviant behavior at best, just like pedophelia, murder etc.

What does that have to do with anything I said.

Being straight isn't beneficial to the species either, But having kids is beneficial and these days you don't have to be straight to have kids, they have surrogates, in vitro, artificial insemination, etc.

And being with the person you love IS beneficial to yourself and individuals around you, your happy, everyone around you is happy. It rubs off.

I was born gay, you can choose to believe that or not, im not here to please your beliefs. Although I don't see why anyone would choose to go through the hard life of a gay person.

That statement speaks volumes about you, one of the most ignorant statements i've seen in this thread.

homosexual relationships are consensual.

pedophile relations are not consensual.

No but they are being denied there constitutional right which is equal protection under the law, and you can't deny that marriage is more of a government institution today than anything else.

Because they have to correct their abnormal behavior (homosexuality). Can't fix something that aint broke (heterosexuality). That is why they need to fix themselves.

Why? Because YOU said so?

Sorry but I don't think your opinion matters that much to anyone but yourself.

But like I said earlier, gay people can have babies to. I can see you still haven't tried to refute any of my statements.

Obviously you know nothing about the constituion because if you did you would know what that statement means.
Which also means you don't really know anything about the law or rights period.

Gay marriage exists in some states still so that definition is outdated.

And seperate but equal is not equal, and not all states have civil unions, mine included.

How do you know you were born gay? When you were born did your mother ask you? If so how did you respond? Write your answer down? Speak whilst as a baby?

Yes God created Life and the universe. He gave us intelligence to use wisely, not for wars, only for the benefit of mankind. But we are using our intelligence to fight wars and do more harm than good eventually.

do you know any gay people? from childhood onward? i know quite a few...they have been gay their whole entire lives. other people had it figured out before they did. there is no doubt in my mind that gay people are 100% born that way. talk to a few gay people and ask them about their childhoods. ask them what they were like as a child and if other people had thought they were gay before they had figured it out for themselves. you will quite likely hear that they have been that way for their whole life.

Contact Merriam webster. Some things dont change. The laws of physics have been operating in this universe for more than 15 billion years...much longer than when you were just a piece of DNA swimming in your mother's womb which were governed by the laws of physics which you mock for their age.
