Marriage is a religious construct based on normative pair bonding between male and female homo sapiens. Why is it a beautiful thing? Because of the personal feelings involved, not the overarching moral.

Homosexuality needs some more demystification. I think we'll eventually come to see it in its proper light through science and logic.

Doh! We posted the same thing. :-(

Maze Monster: I've become...predictable? I will have to fix that right away!
oneblood: I think that's in the process of demystification, thankfully. Of course, those who wish to remain immune to the effects of that process will refer to it as "the gay agenda". Time will tell whether the barrier shielding their strict semi-religious views from any secular discourse on the matter will ever be removed.
Stacy: It's a clip that bears repeating!

I saw the original ad not too long ago, ridiculous! This video was hilarious. I love his sarcasm for the whole thing. It's just great!
I am also glad that they made fun of the guy with an accent, because he drives me crazy in the original ad.
