So, what I'm getting from all the homosexuals here is a simple argument: sexual behavior is genetic, and hence cannot be controlled. Are you really sure you want to take that argument to the bitter end? Are you sure? The second thing I'm hearing is this -- marriage is about love, and nothing else. Again, are you really ready to take that argument to the bitter end? Are you sure?
Read Godel. The rest of your comment is similarly silly and...
Science is not built on consensus, but rather observation. It doesn't matter if everyone in the world believes a particular thing, what matters is if you can prove it. Evolution cannot neither be proven nor disproven based on actual observation, so it it outside the realm of science.
When you begin with an ad hominim, you've already lost the argument.
You've neatly constructed a straw man, and then destroyed it. Steve Deace isn't arguing for the existence of God, but rather showing how Nye's arguments are a species of the same sort of argument you claim he's making -- he's saying, "Bill Nye is arguing for science in the gaps." The reality is that all systems of thought must deal with gaps. You might want to look up Godel's Theorem, which shows that no system can prove itself from within itself. Even science and evolution must rely on something outside science and evolution to provide their foundations.

How can you "consent" or "not consent" to something to which you're genetically bound to do? How can you square the concept of consent with the idea that you can't help being a homosexual? Either you have control of your actions, or you don't. If you don't, then "consent" doesn't play a role at all in sex --it's just the more powerful doing what they want with the less powerful. If consent plays a role, then the entire argument of the homosexual marriage proponents should collapse in the ash heap of reality...

Let's actually step back and take a look at what you just said. You said, "leave your morality (religion) out of politics, because it doesn't belong there. The government needs to recognize gay marriage as a matter of morality." Can't you see that you're just talking about your morality against mine? That you're trying to say, "my morality is right, yours is wrong," all the while saying, "keep your morality out of the discussion?"

"....particularly given how little religion has to do with the policy priorities of the day." I can't see how anyone gets to this point --believing that religion has nothing to do with public policy. I think it might be because Goldberg thinks you can detach religious belief from what he might call "religion," like going to church and having invocations. But it simply won't work in the long run --getting rid of "religion" in the public space essentially says, "religious belief has no impact on moral values," because it's clearly not true.
