As a rational argument, it is indeed worthless. However, it does explain why people oppose homosexuality (and contraceptives): It is against the interests of any political elite. Any politician or cleric wants to have as many soldiers and peasants available under his command as possible, and things like homosexuality ruins that goal. All modern opposition to homosexuality is just a residual leftover from that very thing, and its wrapped with a spiritual cloth serving the goal to make the common man believe homophobia is as much in their interests as it is in the interests of the ones who started it.

I'm glad Washington went this way. It's easier to streamline the paperwork if the State uses 'marriage'.

I wasn't aware that it was already legal outside of Massachusetts. Well, awesome. More hot lesbian action.

I believe not discriminating against minority groups is a part of being civilised, yes.

Believing in the definition of marriage that the world used for the past 6,000 years is not the same as discriminating against gays.

I define marriage as the sacred union of one government with one corporation

I thought marriage was existent before the Judeo-Christian definition of marriage.

Legalizing gay marriages and abortions is the fastest way for Western Islamization.
Do you really want this???
If so - you can start making personal use bombs already.

No.
I made just ONE comment.
(This one is a direct answer to yours ONLY.)
But I like your idea.

useless (if you'll read this)
Yes, it is.
The definition of illness implies malfunction of the body OR brain - and these are such.
The worst idiot is the one who believes he's sane...
And on the other hand:
Knowing the sickness is half the cure.
Sorry, if you take it as an offense - but I only answered your question.

Gays and abortions - less BIRTHS - less NATIVE citizens - more immigrants - more Muslims - Islamization of the state.
And we can see it in some European countries ALREADY.
(While some countries, like Sweden, I think, support BIGGER FAMILIES. Their risk is much lower.)
