Im shure a majority of those same-sex couples married in the past few days
will remain together for the rest of their life.
Length of time thay were already together?
The running average on my list was 14 years, highest was 48 years.

This is true.

Most of those married in the last few days will no doubt form stable
families. Some will adopt or bear children and raise them with the most
loving of care.
One fails themselves when they condemn what they do not know.
Have you really thought about it?
From what I know, those passages condeming homosexuality in the Bible are
in hot dispute, many Biblical scholars find mistruths in the translations.
It seems the real sin of Soddom was gluttony and inhospitality/
And Leveticus condemns temple prostitutes?
And how about all those other rules you willingly violate every day? Are
they not as important?
If homosexuality is so bad, why did Jesus not speak a word of it? Why is
it not in the Commandments?
But what it really comes down to is: do you really want to legislate
morality? Cause, you, no doubt, commit immoral acts every day, some of
which may be immoral in almost all religions.
