This isn't rocket science, boys -- homosexuals and heterosexuals were not meant to co-exist.
The Creator in Her infinite wisdom fitted Cain and Able with a healthy doze of homophobia to prevent them from sleeping with each other.
God and Cain and Able never exist silly. Also homosexuality is not a choice.
Prof Marvel wrote:
I speak metaphorically, of course, but the point is homophobia is the only reason we're having this conversation.
Don't worry homophobic bigots like you are slowly dying out which is why homosexuality will be accepted everywhere in the world in the 21st century.

Homophobia is good, which is the problem with homosexual parents -- they don't teach their kids homophobia.
So homosexual parents should teach their kids to fear themselves? What?

Uruguay Recognizes Marriage Of Gay Couple

A court in Uruguay has for the first time recognized the legal marriage of a gay couple.
Judge Eduardo Martinez recognized on appeal the legality of a marriage entered into in Spain, where Socialists legalized marriage equality in 2005.

So this is your arguing point for gay marriage? Whether it's a choice or not? Can you prove God doesn't exist? Most people accept homosexuality, how can you deny it? That was never the point, it was gay marriage, catch up, you are not that special for being gay, gay history is not new.

Which is another thing straights who support same-sex marriage are blissfully unaware of -- homosexuality and religion can't co-exist.

In other words, when Obama endorsed same-sex marriage he rejected religion.

There's simply no way a person can be both a practicing homosexual and a faithful Christian.

No way.

When you embrace homosexuality, you embrace atheism.

You really have no choice.

Also didn't bring up the topic of socialism. I just brought up the fact that marriage equality is coming to third world countries like Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico City, and South Africa meanwhile the USA lags behind.

Maybe because both your statements don't fly when you apply simple logic and critical thought! Something you are obviously incapable of! Besides it's up to the person making the claim to back up their claim and prove what they state is true! As to proving being gay is a choice the same criteria applies,and even the world renowned experts in their field state that being gay cannot be changed! Logic dictates that if you were in fact born straight the same would apply to being gay! People simply do not choose their sexuality! Seems you're missing that ever critical logic gene! LOL

There never has and never will be any proof what so ever any kind of god/gods. Why not prove the existence of the greek gods or the egyptian gods?

Also when did you "choose" to be straight?

You should not discriminate against someone because of something they where born with. Denying gay people equal rights in marriage is like denying women the right to vote.

If I'm not special why isn't gay marriage not legal yet in all 50 US states? I work at a hard job as a cashier, I go to college, I pay my taxes, I have never broken the law once in my life, and I also happen to be in a gay relationship. Why should I a tax paying US citizen be treated like a second class citizen?

<quoted text>Hey junior get it straight. Marriage itself is NOT sick ( until the gays get their way anyways) it's the boy butt boinking and the ugly frustrated women with toys that make this topic sick and perverted.
Since YOU are the one whose mind is filled with those images, wouldn't it be logical to assume that the one rolling in perversion is you?

After all, you claim to be heterosexual.

You don't see gay folks on this thread fantasizing about YOU having sex.

So for you to back gay marriage, it must be proven they were born that way? Will a Judge try to investigate the history of this gay person to make sure it was by birth? Why don't you back up your last post, prove to us that God is not real.

Gay Americans are decent honest tax paying Americans who fight to defend this country like everyone else. Denying them equal rights under the law is akin to denying women the right to vote.

Which god are we talking about? The greek gods, the egyptian gods, Zoroastrian god, or the god of the abrahamic religions and the countless of other gods humans have created over the centuries. Do you believe in all of those gods? If not why are you an ATHEIST to the greek gods or the egyptian gods?

Lol I never once talked about Spain in my post. I talked about Uruguay. You can't read apparently.

Also someones political ideology doesn't mean they can't support marriage equality. There are many right wingers conservatives who support marriage equality like former Governor of New Mexico Garry Johnson or colin powell.

I myself am a left wing libertarian and I a "conservative" in the sense of what the word used to mean before the word conservative was hijacked by right wingers in America.

answer the question: Do gays have to be born that way to be approved for gay marriage? I believe the God that sent his Son Jesus to die for your sins if you accept Him.
