re: Arguments against gay marriage - Kracktastic
I think we could do this forever. Thus, I will try to be as concise as possible. I do not think the idea you are referring to is defined as morality. Morality is defined as "the degree to which something is right and good : the moral goodness or badness of something". (There is another defi...

Your "critical thinking" needs some fleshing out, my friend. [quote]When you eliminate all subjective goals of a society (advancement, prosperity, etc) and strip it down to the essence of what a society is (simply coexisting), what remains is a very basic set of logical morals: do not kill, harm,...

As a Catholic, I can't believe I agree with you on a point about marriage. Of course this doesn't really do anything to an argument that God's definition of marriage is unchangeable. It just shows that men have tried to change it. ...
