← Marriage - two viewpoints

"gay marriage" has no natural basis, for it serves no group evolutionary strategy or purpose, and is therefore not a "marriage" at all.

Wow, SalGagliano, you've got it all figured out, don't you? So even if gay couples were to adopt and raise children competently, resulting in "healthy (mentally as well as physically) productive adults", that would serve no "evolutionary strategy or purpose"?

Even if your ridiculous claims were true, it does not defend the denial of the right to marry. Your argument could be twisted to apply to the right to own property and housing, the right to own weapons, or many other things--and it still would not make sense to exclude certain classes of people from those rights, based on what ignoramuses call "natural".

Homosexuality occurs in nature, and not just in humans. And I'd wager you know little about evolution.
