Gays can’t see it, but they are perverts.

Homo”sex”uals see the difference, but they don’t want it to be true. Only an idiot could miss it. JP II explains in “Theology of the Body” that sex is a mutual gift open to the possibility of creating new life, not a means of exploiting persons for your own gratification.

So he who knows how sex works will avoid homo"sex"ual activity. This is the commonest of common sense. He will also avoid things that are OK in secular (pagan!) culture. There are many examples, it is not homo"sex"ual activity that needs to stop.

And incidentally, it's a very small percentage of gays who are sado-masochistic -- probably the same as the percentage of straight people who are into those fetishes. You are so cavalier in throwing out all the nasty stereotypes that foment hatred of gay people.
For most Americans, the meaning of marriage is simply common sense. Marriage as the union of one man and one woman is at the heart of what most of us believe family should be. Even if we don’t all manage to live out that belief as perfectly as we would like, not everyone who opposes the redefinition of marriage to include homosexual couples has a detailed explanation for their position. Just because someone is divorced, for example, does not mean he or she does not believe in traditional marriage. Everyday folks understand that society needs strong ideals to bring out the...
