The same marriage license is issued for all married couples in each state that has equal marriage rights. In the eyes of the government, they are equal and real.

Yes, that feels very good, doesn't it.

10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed
By TFP Student Action
Share
1. It Is Not Marriage
Wrong, it is every bit as valid a marriage as anyone else has.
2. It Violates Natural Law
It's very natural and wonderful for us.
4. It Validates and Promotes the Homosexual Lifestyle
Being a nasty bigot may be your life style, but being a middle class retired teacher is closer to what mine is. My orientation, however, is homosexual. It is as valid as having a heterosexual orientation.
5. It Turns a Moral Wrong into a Civil Right
There is no value judgement on orientation. It is an inborn trait like blue eyes. There is however a value judgement on people who hate, such as yourself, and it's not good.
As to civil rights, as American citizens, we have as much right to marry as you have. Half-baked hatred is no excuse to withhold rights.

6. It Does Not Create a Family but a Naturally Sterile Union
Two people in love and married are a family. Some add children to the family by medical means or adoption, just like heterosexuals do. Not every family wants children, but for those who do, there is always a way.
7. It Defeats the State’s Purpose of Benefiting Marriage
What purpose is that? To create a prosperous and stable population?? Our families help very well on this front.
8. It Imposes Its Acceptance on All Society
Not at all. You can NOT accept us all you want. We don't really care. There are lots of people who still don't accept interracial couples. Does it stop them??
You see, there is no logical, rational, or legal reason to deny us equal rights. There is a lot of extreme emotion in the form of hate, but that is not a reason for withholding rights. The Ninth District Court In CA pointed that out.

You lose the history lesson on both counts;

1. The Bible was the text book for scores of early American school history.

2. Gay 'marriages' have never ever survived for any length of time in history.

Simply facts. You'll live to see it (smile).

My thoughts exactly........just ridiculous if ya ask me and where I live......the folks who typically get to expressing themselves are young heterosexual teenagers who can't control themselves AND even they aren't jacking off in front of other people's kids!!!

Not to mention that he takes the actions of a very few and stereotypes it into the whole gay population! And yet he also never mentions the actions of straights doing the very same things! Anyone having sex on the beach in public should be arrested and prosecuted but again it just isn't gays! That boy looks through rose colored glasses,and isn't he great at the stereotyping!
I totally agree with ya:-)

I am a opposite sex couple and I would be more than happy to give you equal rights under a civil union by any other name than marriage and most other straight couples feel the same....
Go find your own name for your abnormal union.....
So what you're saying is you're a hermaphrodite married to yourself. Why deny that joys of marriage to same sex couples? Selfish bastard.

Well in a way you are correct, in a way you are not. Rural schools in early America often used the bible. Mostly because that was the only book to be had, period. It was never endorsed by the US government, or any part of it thereof, as an official textbook.

Bottom line is that marriage was always between a man and a woman until the abnormals tried to change it.....
The word means a civil union between straight different sex couples.....
So allowing the gays to use the word is calling them straight.....ROTFLMAO
1. Not all marriages have been recorded from the time of the first one.
2. Some same sex marriages have occured in history.
3. WTF are you trying to say with "civil union between straight different sex couples?"
4. Nope, allowing gays to marry isn't calling them straight - more proof you're quite the eejit.

We AREN'T pretending to be anything but WHO we are......being married to my wife HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TRYING TO BE STRAIGHT.....but it does have to do with love, respect, companionship and being responsible for someone I care for!!!
