The legal contract of Marriage does not need to be fundamentally redifined as sacred in order to make a few individuals feel better about themselves and their religious authority.

Anything that goes against nature is bound to have repercussions. Doesn't matter how you "feel", what matters is what is truly natural. I know some animals are also "homosexual" but they don't know any better because thay do not think nor rationalize like a human brain will. Just my opinion and it will never change no matter what.

I guess that was why the religious right was pushing to legally define marriage as one man and one woman. But that is not really what I said was it? You need to redefine a legal contract as sacred to maintain your authority by religion. Sorry, its only sacred if you want it to be.

Actually marriage is already legally defined as one man and one woman, and we are trying to keep it that way, since it the only natural an normal relationship to create and rear future generations.

But since it is not a religious relationship, only a legal one, it can and will be changed. What is natural and normal, even if your assertion were true, has no bearing on what is legal.

God, our "Creator" loves all his/her children, she/he created all of us, straight, gay, black, white, yellow, brown... so, why should it matter?

God hates sin, homosexual behavior is sin, that is why it matters.

"sin"?...what exactly does that mean to you? I think that is for each one of us to decide for our own fate, our path, not for others to decide how we should live our life here on this earth. if we are to be "judged", then let the time and place be in front of God when when we die. Otherwise, those without the "proverbial sin" cast the first stone...as long as it doesn't hurt anyone...i still feel it shouldn't matter....we are not to judge...

It is inevitable because the laws of the nation apply regardless of religion or what you want the values of the nation to be.

Marriage is the jurisdiction of each and every State, under the Constitution, y'all might try to go from state to state and try to find a freindly judge, since you lose everytime homosexual marriage is up for any kind of vote.

Since you don't even capitalize your god I can infer that you don't even respect him, he must be a false god and not the God of the Holy Bible.
