Marriage, and our society overall, is strengthened by being more inclusive and less bigoted.

I don't believe in it. And, they shouldn't force their lifestyles on other people. If thats how they choose to live then that's fine but to force it on others is where it makes the lifestyle offending. And, God never said the same sex was ok.

Newsflash: the United States is not a theocracy, and no religion informs our secular laws. So what you think a particular god likes or doesn't like makes no difference.

Anyone who says being gay is a choice clearly demonstrates they don't have a clue what they are talking about. Unless you are speculating that gay people have special powers over their sexuality that no one else has, including you presumably.

And no one is forcing anything on anyone, dufus. Do you confront people who walk by you on the street and tell them to stop shoving themselves in your face? Grow up. Stop shoving your ignorance in our face.

You belive in God and thats fine but most people dont and no one knows is God is real but just because you do doesnt mean you can tell everyone else what to do you claim that gays push thier lifestyle on mainstream society but you "christians" do it with more frequency.

Gay people are an identified, suspect class of people no different than anyone else and are entitled to equal protection under the law.

H*e, please. You live in San Francisco. Give it up, honey. Ain't no-one forcing you to eat kitty. No-one is making you do that, and your God has no say on the lives of others. Heterosexuals force their lives on homosexuals every day, and you are forcing your religious beliefs on them. So you are a hypocrite. At least drop the religion act and admit you are anti-gay. And then move to a city that's better suited to someone of your kind.

How do you know that one or more of our presidents wasn't a closet gay? You never know.

Gays need to be loved but not their lifestyle. It is a behavioual trait even it is not practiced among the animal kingdom. Male animals always go after a female and vis a versa. Males and females compliments each other and procreate. Anything else would be uncivilized.

These scientists have a built in bias. Truth speaks louder. How did you come to the world dude. Did you have two dads and one of them with a falopian tube and placenta? Chill out.

I'm sure you know the obvious answer... I came from a female mother and male father. This is not about conception or procreation. It is about my right to have whomever I choose as a partner. And bias indeed... you honestly think there isn't bias from many many areas written all over these posts nationwide? Really...

It is what it is. You've addressed the jama link but carefully put a space between this one deadening it in your former response. It is a study from 2001. If you commented on both without leaving one of them out then I could see how you were being forthright. But since that is not the case with you, Oh Well, instead I can see that you were being more forth-fright.

Have a good day anyhow.

What does it really hurt? With heterosexual marriage in the dumps, maybe the gays can do it better.
