I love how every one on here says that the “cause God said so, etc” is just broken record logic. Well I have news for pro-homosexuals, your “love, love, love…, etc.” is also a broken record. The word marriage has a strictly defined meaning. In no dictionary prior to this century/millennium (possibly even into the mid to late 00’s) will you find the definition of marriage refer to a same sex couple. I look to my 2003 printing of the Webster’s Unabridged, and there is no mention of same sex union. However, if you go to Webster’s online, they have now included the definition to mean same sex as well. Well, you just simply cannot do that. I cannot call a poster a car so many times that people just accept it, because car does not mean poster. I understand that languages can change over time, but the commonality of older words generally remain the same. Usually there are words added, rather than dropped or meaning changed. Thus there is an expansion of vocabulary, not change. Gay never meant homosexual until the 60’s/70’s. It was meant as a synonym for happy, joyful, etc. That was also changed. However, the homosexual agenda powers that be, have been able to completely change meanings of words that had nothing to do with homosexuality. As for separation of church and state argument, please. If you actually read what the founders intended (the federalist and anti-federalist papers), you will find that the separation between church and state (in the Constitution) is only for the federal government, and only so far as to ban the feds from supporting any one religion. Meaning, the federal government cannot mandate that we pay a tax to support Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, etc. There is no barring of legislatures to use their faith as a basis for the way the government should run/the way they vote. Furthermore, a strict and proper way of interpreting the separation clause would allow each state to decide if they want to have an official religion. Thomas Jefferson did not personally like it, and worked to outlaw it in Virginia, but he wouldn’t really care what Georgia or Connecticut did on the matter. Many states did in fact have state sponsored religion. The courts have unfortunately ruled that the separation clause means anything from not allowed to display the 10 commandments on public property to no prayer at official school events (even if only three or so people show up). This is most definitely counter to the Founder’s vision of the separation clause, and it has zero application in this debate.
