Marriage is a common link between two people that love each other enough they want to spend their lives together.
You're hung up on this man and woman together thing. Why is that aspect so important to you to the exclusion of all other factors? Does the lifelong committment part mean nothing to you? Does the love part not mean anything to you? You're cheapening the definition of marriage by strictly making it about a dick and a pussy and failing to recognize that there is a hell of a lot more to a marriage than that. In reality dick and pussy dont have anything to do with marriage. Sex does. Committment does. Love does. Gays can have exactly those same characteristics as couples, thus marriage between gays is completely rational.
All having sexual compatability within each couple, and all having a lifelong committment to each other. Hmmm no man+woman combination required when you view it that way is there?Got it? One pool. Lots of little H2O couples. Dozens of different reasons for being there. Dozens of different ways you got there.
"We've been looking for the enemy for some time now. We've finally found him. We're surrounded. That simplifies things."
“They paid the highest price that a soldier can pay. I bow before you. Germany bows before you.”
What you say is "God" I say is some 1st century kook who didn't have a better use of his time.
Yet another thing I can't stand about Evangelical Christians. It's the seething arrogant superiority complex as if your personal belief in "God" should be forced on everyone else. Far from it, the World is much more diverse in its beliefs than your narrow interpretation of that 1st century text. You are no better of a position to say that your beliefs are the truth than a Hindu in India, a religion which by the way says absolutely nothing about homosexuality.
Here is one you should relish though:

You obviously harbor some kind of hatred for it. That's your own issue that has nothing to do with this one.
That I was able to bait you into expressing your true feelings and how and why you support an obviously dangerous "lifestyle" by making up my own quotation from God is quite amusing actually. God is surely infinitely more patient and tolerant of the foolishness of humanity than I would be, so my imagined statement was only that, a statement by a person trying to guess what God might be thinking. Most assuredly incorrect as well.
It served its purpose though
So don't talk down to me with your obviously arrogant superiority complex you have with your "God" and "Bible."
For every quote you attempt to vilify a minority with, I will visit upon you another one which highlights the Bible's endorsement of slavery, child abuse, or genocide, and yes I know where they all areThe point you're trying to make could have been said much more quickly. You really don't care for people who believe in the Christian faith. You make the exact same excuses for your nasty feelings for these people as can be made for any group of people of any belief system.
While your fabricated quote was your own lies, my exposure of the Bible's endorsement of slavery was in fact quite real.
You sure were brave, but foolish, in admitting an attempt at baiting, which is a violation of the Code of Conduct on this forum.That I was able to bait you into expressing your true feelings and how and why you support an obviously dangerous "lifestyle" by making up my own quotation from God is quite amusing actually.

You arrogantly impersonated a prophet and lied about the word of the Christian Bible in an attempt to attack and denigrate your fellow human being, and if the Bible is something you truly believe in, those are sins you will have to pay for in Hell.

hey um dude... christianity, judaism, and islam are all faiths that worship, and get this cause its the important part, THE SAME GOD. HAHAHAAHAHAHa. hilarious right? cause you'd think that if they worshipped the same god they'd do it the same way, but it turns out back in the day they didn't exactly have the internet or telephones so it was hard for isolated groups, say that draw their beliefs from their patriarch who was exiled for being a bastard son of another groups patriarch. add in various historical events, and miraculous happenings etc and youve got a totally different take on worshipping the same creator. Throw in an historical figure believed to be the prophisied messiah in the mother text (you'd know this as the torah yes? ) and the smashing success of subsequent cult that arose from this and youve got ANOTHER religion that spreads to other regions of the world and adds its own myths as they happen.
shit dude i mean trips didn't even quote the bible at you. ease off the throttle a little yeah?
