Homosexuality is a threat to human survival. Homosexuals cannot reproduce. This is a scientific fact, not religious or emotional. If we don't reproduce we will become extinct.

It means less life not more at a time when we are barely reproducing ourselves at replacement levels. It is homosexuals who are trying to force their lifestyle choice down the throats of society, whether by national boycotts of childrens groups, suing and harassing churches or others who do not agree with them or censoring speakers and dis-inviting them for something they spoke about over 20 years ago.

As you can see, most of the American Public has had enough with Social Conservatives calls for Big Government to regulate the personal lives of people in the name of "moral necessity", and "morals".

Charlie Zulu Tango, this is Bravo Company Actual... Need an airstrike at these coordinates. Target is a Walgreens Pharmacy with condoms and birth control pills. Requesting air support with a battery of Hellfire missiles.

Danger Close is acceptable because many women are refilling their birth control today.

A threat of extinction? Are you claiming that if same sex couples get married straight people will turn homosexual and suddenly not reproduce?

The earliest societies had homosexuals and we still have them today

Unless you are claiming that if we allow same sex couples to marry it will suddenly make you give up YOUR desire to reproduce , your post is ridiculous

G.K. Chesterton observed in The Superstition of Divorce that “reformers of marriage . . . do not know what it is, or what it is meant to be, or what its supporters suppose it to be . . . .” Marriage opponents, who today seek not to reform but rather redefine marriage, appear to suffer from the problem diagnosed by Chesterton almost a century ago.

In their heedless rush to establish the legitimacy of...
