    It's not so much their gross choices that bother me, it's them seeking to destroy the sanctity of marriage and wanting special rights... It also bothers me that so many people try and spread the myth that people are born homo, which takes away the personal responsability of the situation...

    The sanctity of a marriage can only be violated by those that participate in the marriage, not by anybody else getting married anywhere else to somebody else. In short, only you can violate the sanctity of your marriage. Since there are already churches that provide services for Homosexual couples, if that was a "violation of the sanctity" your marriage is already well violated.

    Whatever they decide to do with their lives may have nothing to do with your religion or whatever you believe to be sanctified. They have a right to their beliefs as you do to yours. Therefore your "sanctified" argument is simply a way to attempt to force your religion on others, even to the point of deciding who they should marry.

    I have not argued here whether or not people are born homosexual or not, I simply have argued that it is their choice and their responsibility to take part in these relationships.

    No.... homosexuals getting "married' destroy marriage because they falls outside the definition of marriage - "A union between a man and a woman"

    Function: noun
    1 : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a legal, consensual, and contractual relationship.

    If homo's want to have a Civil Union, so be it.. but leave Marriage out of it..

    There are moral absolutes in life having nothing to do with religion, homosexuality being wrong is one of them. This scares the hell out of people who choose to engage in homosexuality and the liberals and moral relativists who love them.

    Let's put in the whole definition.

    mar┬Ěriage ( P ) Pronunciation Key (mrj)
    n.

    a. The legal union of a man and woman as husband and wife.
    b. The state of being married; wedlock.
    c. A common-law marriage.
    d. A union between two persons having the customary but usually not the legal force of marriage: a same-sex marriage.


    If we use the entire definition, then we can see it includes same-sex and has the customary meaning just not the "legal" meaning. The definition of words has changed before, and can still change to include the force of law for those unions of the same-sex variety all without violating the "sanctity" of your own marriage. As I said before, the sanctity of your marriage can only be violated by yourself or your wife, anything anybody else does can have no bearing on your marriage at all.

    There are countries that allow more than one woman per man and same-sex marriage as well. So far your marriage would still be sanctified so long as you followed your vows, and did not violate the promise you personally made before God and those witnesses.

    If their marriage is a sin or not "sanctified" that is their responsibility to deal with between God, etc.

    Either way, it doesn't hurt you personally and therefore IMHO is none of my business. The only victims in such a relationship is with those that choose to be in the relationship.
