Amy, that is completely untrue. Even in the Greco-Roman cultures that were more tolerant of homosexuality there never was legally recognized Same Sex Marriage. Historically all laws to include inheritance or royal succession were based on traditional marriages. What you wrote about ancient same sex marriages is pure fallacy.
David, the vast majority of American homosexuals and heterosexuals would be accepting of each other’s beliefs because that is our strength as a nation. They may not agree with those beliefs but would not actively harm or discriminate against those of the opposite view. The problem is you have the fringe on each side of the argument and that is where the lawyers come in. There is no logical reason to force a Christian, Muslim or Jewish Baker to bake a same sex wedding cake when finding a baker to bake a cake is not a problem. Forcing private business owners to go against their Religious beliefs violates our Constitution. If this was simply about two same sex people wishing to legally spend their lives together this issue could be easily solved. This is a secular humanist attack on America’s Judeo Christian foundation that is why we are where we are.
Sure there is, Jesus Himself defined marriage: Mathew 19:3-4 3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” 4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a] 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
1. I never mentioned Religion in my comment 2. Many civilizations have thrived without empathy, social justice, compassion, curiosity, exploration, creativity and invention. 3. I never said that Homosexuality was not in nature I said it was unnatural to human beings. 4. I never said Homosexuality damaged civilization I said it does not add to it. This is becoming more important as native Europeans will cease to exist because they are no longer having children at replacement rates.
The great author George Orwell would disagree with you. Without agreed upon meanings to words you cannot have a logical discussion. Words are more vital than agreed upon First Principles which are required in any debate. A huge problem with this administration is they say things but what they mean by them is not what is the generally considered the meaning by the majority of Americans.
ISIS is not offended by Gitmo they see Gitmo as a weakness. Notice ISIS has no Gitmo equivalent? Because they behead or burn those captured by them. ISIS is tripping over themselves with laughter that we sent 5 hardened Taliban back to the fight.
I agree, I felt that homosexual unions should be called Coupling. If one wished to be specific it could be referred to as Male or Female Coupling.
Marriage and the family unit pre-date all nations and it has been through families we eventually had the formation of nations and laws (civilization). The catalyst of a family is heterosexual sex leading to the birth of children; families were given elevated status in human civilization to protect children perpetuating the species. Homosexual sex is unnatural and at best, is 2-4% of the population and adds nothing to society. Why would we change the definition of marriage ignoring thousands of years this institution has been a building block for civilization for what is essentially an unnatural act that adds nothing beneficial to humanity as a whole? This illusion that Gay marriage is somehow a civil right is not shared by the majority mankind that inhabits planet earth, so even if I believed this poll to be accurate I know I am still in the majority of human beings who see this as ludicrous. Please note that I never mentioned religion in my comment.
True, I believe Vermont is the only state it won by popular vote.
David, you should have stopped after paragraph 1. Since Israel’s inception the one and only goal of the Islamic nations surrounding her has been its destruction. In my mind the Palestinians lost any claim to their own state when they sided with their fellow Muslims at the beginning when the UN mandated a two state solution. There has never been a good faith negotiation between Israel and any Islamic nation, the Muslims only goal is to see how many concessions they can get from Israel until they can finally destroy her.

Even if the world never heard of “Chuck Norris “ movie star, Carlos Ray Norris would have much to be proud of. Born again Christian, dutiful husband and father, US Air Force Veteran and Champion Martial artist. Norris is this generation's John Wayne but what makes him even a bigger American Hero than Wayne, in my opinion, is the feeling Chuck Norris could actually do what we see him do on the big screen. I know Norris would humbly chuckle at that but this Renaissance man is truly a special person who has blessed not only Americans but those who were oppressed under the evil Iron Curtin.
