Marriage is the foundation of all society. It is the Best avenue to which families are formed, kids are raised, etc... It should not be altered in any way. In order to preserve the structure of society, and the sanctuary and sanctity of marriage. To alter marriage would be a risky and dangerous experiment, bearing far too great a risk to the function and framework of civilized populations and societies.

When progressives don't get their way, 7 million voters defined the word Marriage as being between a Man and a Woman, they change the rules until they get their way.
What don't you understand about the above statement? The word marriage means between a man and a woman, not a man and a goat, or mule and a woman, or a pig, man and man, or woman, sheep, horse, derlict, or whatever else you effen dork try to make it to mean.
Define pedophile for me.
Man man homosexual and young boy correct, or do you want to change pedophile to mean whatever you choose.
Help me out with what is inside that twisted brain of yours.
Let me ask you, was a penis made to stick in someone's "wrecktum". Was a vagina made so it could receive a tongue?

I can think of a variety of reasons why homosexuals should be able to marry under the auspices of state authority, regardless of any specific religious denomination's opposition to it.

But I've yet to hear one single argument in support of "heterosexual only" state sanctioned marriage that doesn't involve some sort of religious or allegedly "moral" foundation.

From that purely religious and allegedly "moral" foundation, the leap of faith provided is that permitting homosexuals the same sort of rights and benefits accorded to heterosexual couples via the state sanctioned status of marriage will cause utter chaos and the destruction of society.

How ridiculous. Same sort of thinking that got Galileo in trouble with that darned heliocentric nonsense.

The breaking of traditional values has played a huge part already in our society. Children aren't raised with family values anymore. They aren't taught to treat their elders with respect. They aren't taught they have to work for things in life and school with the privilege of being able to learn is nothing to them.
They want to be famous and read gossip mags instead of wanting to be a doctor and reading the news. They live beyond their means on credit cards and troll the interweb from their moms basements. They get pregnant when they are 12 years old. If you're a man who wants to have sex with a man by all means knock yourself out! But stop trying to break traditions and turn the world into your own huge gay diva parade.

This is why we have a judicial system as part of the system of checks and balance: to right the wrongs of voters (such as yourself), that were born with little teenie weenie brains. Im surprised you didnt pull out the 'its Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve' line. Maybe you are saving that for your big finale.

Penis...Anal Canal

Tongue...Vagina

Equals Homosexual Union

The word Marriage was instituted and defined as a lifetime committment between a man and a woman, any other way of trying to butcher the WORD Marriage, is a perversion, like the homosexual judge and others of his ilk.

Touched a nerve ay Norm? Yes I love popcorn and politics. I also am a hetrosexual male you effen pig. I don't understand why a man can sleep with another man but that is not my bussiness. Tell me Norm. Does adultry between a man and a woman hurt the sanctudy of marriage?
Does it when there is domestic violence or drugs and booze in the home?
