same sex marriages are as wrong as a cow having sex with a donkey. in the bible it goes against allowing people of the same sex to be married in holy matramony. it also goes against a lot of state laws that are in effect in this today and age. also i think that it is against most of the federal rules in the united states. gay marriage goes against most religion laws and federal and state laws.

So now you want to get into the religious side of things?
I am catholic so I understand where you are coming from...
But, God created us who we are, he creates 'the one' for us and only for us.
He creates everything including our state of mind. If 'the one' turns out to be the same sex as you, and you truly believe they are 'the one', you have the right to spend the rest of your life with each other an be recognized by the state as a married couple, Homosexual or not. And for your analogy of the animals, I'd rather keep Human rights in order here and not refer to Homosexual and Bisexuals as animals thank-you.

Well you understand now then, correct?

You were responding to what I said, but in your response you brought up the bible because of something somebody else said. I didn't bring it up, so I didn't understand why you added it to what you said.

PLEASE re-read my last sentence of my response below....
I wasn't the one that brought the bible into this discussion.

...Uhm that argument didn't really make much sense to me. I didn't say anything about the bible, I said that coming from a straight person, that means nothing because really you don't know and never truly will, and if you want to add the bible into it, they were all straight obviously so they wouldn't really know either.

Coming from a straight person that means nothing,... O.K.

How about the bible then, I mean if homosexuals wish to claim the bible is fine with them bieng homosexuals, and the bible in FACT says homosexuality is unnatural,..

Rom 1:26-27 "For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error."

This was the CONTEXT of my response to the claim the bible's stance on homosexuality was a "myth," I simply provided several passages that claim its sin, and unnatural in the eyes of GOD!

"I would say your sources are bogus. Just like believing homosexuality is natural."

Coming from a straight person that really means nothing.

I hate the PRO's argument, though I agree with their cause. I would vote for con because at first they had a better argument, but then they forfeited the next 2 rounds. One had stupid arguments, the other had one good and 2 non-existent ones.

tiger.ess, I challenge you to a debate. (Challenge me because I'm too lazy to challenge you first.)
