Well Andy, given that I do not believe in the God thing, your protestation regarding God's intent is just static. But your response is really emblematic of what is really happening in this debate. I wrote that same sex RELATIONSHIPS are close enough, and you reduced that to sexual relations without a second thought.
Here's a corollary. Suppose the issue was cars and the context is driving to the grocery store. In that context a brand new Lexus and a ten year old Honda Civic are close enough that the differences don't matter. I am not comparing the two vehicles in every aspect or every context. But as far as driving to the corner store, they are the same.
