The Left (Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10) is better at language if one prefers to live in delusionland (Ps 10:111, Lk 12:1719, Lk 13:2330, 2 Thess. 2:112, 2 Pet. 3:5, 16, 17).

    You haven't done your research. Much, much social harm will arise from this ruling. It is ignorant to think differently.

    Erm, it's their PUBLIC lives and actions which I find worrisome for the future......... not my own, but of children and youth of today.

    How so? Being gay does not mean they are exempt from the same laws that apply to the rest of us.

    Why is it that your concern for the public lives of married couples has never extended to heterosexuals couples who are on display over adultery, domestic/child abuse, drugs/alcohol, arrests, etc?

    Protecting children was never the primary function or reason for marriage.

    IF it were, child bearing would be a mandatory requirement for marriage.

    I know, but you and I both know this is not its proper usage, and that marriage is still the best way to protect children, and civilization itself.

    Ancestry, descendants, and the natural family were always the foundation of marriage, and many infertile couples are bitterly angry that gays capitalized on their misfortune to redefine marriage.
