So much to respond to:

This is NOT a civil rights issue - there is no comparison with interracial marriage. To claim so is to throw out an emotional red-herring. Here's the difference: Marriage is a union between a man and woman. It has been for 1,000's of years. Not allowing a black man to marry a white woman WAS discrimination. But A man marrying a man? A woman marrying a woman? This isn't marriage!

There is nothing unfair about the current laws. Any unrelated male and female can marry. The current goal is a political one designed to normalize homosexuality.

It is possible to oppose gay marriage without being anti-gay. I have friends who arrived in this country illegaly yet I still advocate strengthening the borders. I can still befriend and relate to people who live and act differently than I.

Despite the hype, homosexuality is not an unalterable genetic fact. What are the dynamics and causes? This is not easily studied because of the political firestorm it creates.

The Kinsey study is terribly flawed - ask any Statistics Professor.
