Oh, if this weren't so pathetic it would be hysterical. Just wait - I'll bet these crazy New York lawmakers are going to let interracial couples marry one of these days. THEN we're going to hell in a handbasket for sure!

Does Mr. Martines understand that the New Testement he quotes is less than two thousand years old. The beginning of "human history" goes well before that. Homosexuality was a common practice in many ancient civilizations. Marraige existed prior to Christianity and was a social institution created to establish male lineage and had nothing to do with Christianity or any religion.

If you believe that "marriage is a religious institution.....", then fine. Just practice your religion. But marriage is also a civil- and government-regulated institution, and that is the one that was changed. It does not affect you or me in any way. All the gays are asking for is the civil right to be legally entitled to the benefits of marriage. I don't understand why you are so upset about it. No one is going to force you or your clergyman to recognize anything or to perform gay marriages. And stop with the "..two women, ... men and dogs" etc. That's not what this is about.

Yeah, right. "radical homosexual movement's war on the family". What about the radical anti-abortion movement's war on abortion rights? See, I can use inflammatory and meaningless terms too.
