Re: No I haven't said it is a choice
For those who reject Christ, they are free to live as they please
Oh good! Discussion over.
They simply may not misuse the institution of marriage for their own selfish purposes and corrupt the public imagination with the idea that their aberration is normal.
Oh. So they can't live as they please, presumably because "normals" are the only ones allowed to have a voice when we, as a culture, talk about how we define marriage. Got it.
Also, noted that those heterosexuals who reject Christ may not misuse the institution of marriage. Whatever that means.
Hurray for normies! All hail the normal overlords.

And picturing a gay "couple" with children is really ridiculous. Where did they get them?
From women who've been convinced against having an abortion, probably.

Ah.
Another case of "they can live as they want, except..."

That's life, Doc,
I just wanted to point out to you that earlier you said these people can live the way they choose and then you proceed to express a desire to deny them the opportunity to live the way they choose. If that's the way you are and you're comfortable with this sort-of weak justification for persecution, then that's fine with me. I know I couldn't live like that.
at least it was until the lefties decided that nobody should ever be prohibited from anything.
I don't really know if this is the case. I know that I consider myself a leftie and this is not my position. But this could just mean that I'm not a true leftie. Anyway, if it is the case this is dumb. There are good reasons to prohibit people from things. What are the good reasons for prohibiting gay men or women from adopting?
It used to be that singles couldn't adopt either, and married heteros had to qualify.
Well, I don't think that having people go through some degree of screening before they adopt kids is a bad idea. I remain unconvinced that gay women and men should be prohibited from adopting children. Are there reasons I should know about?

h well. Do I really have to explain that again? Gays are a travesty of a couple, and kids are going to figure that out eventually. Unnatural is the word. Fake. Makebelieve. Emperor's new clothes.
Would that we all had your power to read the real truth behind everyone's feelings.
God, I wish I knew how to quit reading you.
