Marriage is What it is

AliveinHim: "it's a matter of complementary physical attributes as well" That's just one of many blindingly obvious things that pro-gay people have to ignore. Supporting "gay marriage" is not a logical position, so no one can be logic'd out of it. It is an emotional position based on things people *want* to be true so badly that no evidence will convince them otherwise.

I see a lot of unsupported claims, assuming the thesis and other blatantly incompetent failures of judgment that the faithful, AKA believers without reason, are known for.

The issue, for about the 50th time, is the right of all consenting adults to enter into contracts and have them enforced and adjudicated just like every other consenting adult who freely entered a contract.

Arbitrary infringements on that right (based on you not liking the parties or terms of a contract and which are tantamount government favoring particular styles of contract) are an obvious and egregious violation of the 14th amendment, which is why the bigots are losing and deserve to lose on this issue.

Get used to it.

"I see a lot of unsupported claims, assuming the thesis" -- The support may not be directly in the post but it's all around. Whenever you see it, you just try to explain it away.

"is the right of all consenting adults to enter into contracts" -- But there's more to marriage than just that.

"Arbitrary infringements on that right (based on you not liking the parties or terms of a contract" -- There is nothing "arbitrary" (or based on someone merely "not liking" anything) about preferring natural relationships over abnormal, paraphilia-based ones.

You put a lot of effort into trying to sound right. You should put some of that into actually *being* right instead.

“It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is,” said the smooth-talking, skirt-chasing, totally busted philanderer.

“Well, no, Bill,” replied Congress. “Actually, things just ‘is’ what they is.”

Here’s what marriage is: The God-ordained, lifelong, covenantal union between man and wife, designed to provide men, women and children optimal stability and overall well-being. Marriage is that biologically, spiritually and morally centered institution calculated to ensure responsible procreation and perpetuate the human race. Marriage – real marriage – represents the fundamental cornerstone of any healthy society (any society that hopes to survive, at least).

Here’s what marriage is not: Anything...
