Gay Marriage at the Ballot Box

Lots of opposite-sex couples can't have their own offspring.
These are problems within our culture, but they are in no way indicative of problems with the communities involved.
"These black pastors understand that collapse of family, out of wedlock births, single parent households, promiscuity, drugs and crime are the crises undermining black physical and economic health today." This is spot-on, though legalizing same-sex marriage has nothing to do with any of these. Promiscuity is the leading source of HIV infections, and it is a terrible problem in every community. There is nothing dangerous or "wrong" about being Gay, but there are many dangers in promiscuity, regardless of who you are or who you like. Saying that Gay people are horrible because of promiscuity is the same as saying that all Black people are lazy because the poverty rate for Black people is higher than that for White people.
If America only consisted of Christian conservatives, this country would be mind-numbingly boring! With no diversity, our culture would be so bland.
I'm sorry to hear about your friend, but an anecdotal case does not imply what the "rule" is.
I don't see how the right to marry in the same way that Straight couples marry is a "special right" for Gay people.

This is absolutely disgusting. I don't know what all the fear of Sharia law is about, because we clearly want to start handing down Baath-inspired punishments...
I don't see what that has to do with this. Some Gay people, of both genders, marry people of the opposite genders to try to "become" Straight. If I understand correctly, that's actually what many conservatives want us to do.
Married homosexual couples with children were relatively rare in the Regnerus study. The vast majority of people studied came from divorced homes, where one parent of either gender later went on to have relationships with people of the same gender, either after the divorce, or during an affair while married. The respondents in the study overwhelmingly only had one homosexual parent, not two. In this way, the study is almost a reminder of the social ills of divorce, not homosexual couples raising children.
I'm Gay, and I'm saving myself for marriage. Can you hear the Republican heads exploding?
Not to mention, couplings in which a partner has a reproductive disorder are inherently sinful, too.
