thats how defines it.

now i may have miss read how this is worded but it seems to me that under deffinition 5 that gay marriage should be allowed. i mean it is marriage by deffinition. and same with deffinition 4, hell it even says homosexual marriage. and number 2 says nothing about sex. and note there is a difference between gender and sex. with gender being sexual identity in relation to society and culture. so yeah a male could be a woman and a female could be a man.
so in reality your deffinition approach to anti gay marriage is wrong. it being religious well deffinition says its a social institution. so yeah you amy be against it but it is not constitutional wrong. first amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
so yeah you cant go off of religion.

A cultural sanction that is out of date and not needed. Basically, a woman becomes a slave to her husband and must legally refuse her name thereby being robbed of her identity.

A relationship between one man and one woman. The nucleus of the family. Ordained by God and not by governments, and therefore not definable or controllable by governments.

Little children sometimes play amusing little games in which their puppy dogs and kitty cats get married. In a similar fashion, grown-up poofters and diesel dykes sometimes pretend that they can get married to each other. Strangely, all good liberal twits pretend the same thing.

Every poofter has the God-given right to get married. He can marry any willing single woman he wants to.

Every bull dyke has the God-given right to get married. She can marry any willing single man she wants to.

1) A God-ordained process of ancient Hebrew origin by which a man and a woman are joined to become one flesh.
