Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

The real reasons sex pervert pushers want same sex marriage, and its not about lifelong monogamy and happy families.
From LA Times of March 12: ...
Divided over gay marriage by Roy Rivenburg Paula Ettelbrick, a law professor who runs the International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Commission, recommends legalizing a wide variety of marriage alternatives, including polyamory, or group wedlock. An example could include a lesbian couple living with a sperm-donor father, or a network of men and women who share sexual relations.
One aim, she says, is to break the stranglehold that married heterosexual couples have on health benefits and legal rights. The other goal is to push the parameters of sex, sexuality and family, and in the process transform the very fabric of society. ... [snip]
An excerpt from: In Their Own Words: The Homosexual Agenda:
Homosexual activist Michelangelo Signorile, who writes periodically for The New York Times, summarizes the agenda in OUT magazine (Dec/Jan 1994):
A middle ground might be to fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completely, to demand the right to marry not as a way of adhering to societys moral codes, but rather to debunk a myth and radically alter an archaic institution... The most subversive action lesbian and gay men can undertake and one that would perhaps benefit all of societyis to transform the notion of family entirely.
Its the final tool with which to dismantle all sodomy statues, get education about homosexuality and AIDS into the public schools and in short to usher in a sea change in how society views and treats us.
Chris Crain, the editor of the Washington Blade has stated that all homosexual activists should fight for the legalization of same-sex marriage as a way of gaining passage of federal anti-discrimination laws that will provide homosexuals with federal protection for their chosen lifestyle.
Crain writes: ...any leader of any gay rights organization who is not prepared to throw the bulk of their efforts right now into the fight for marriage is squandering resources and doesnt deserve the position. (Washington Blade, August, 2003).
Andrew Sullivan, a homosexual activist writing in his book, Virtually Normal, says that once same-sex marriage is legalized, heterosexuals will have to develop a greater understanding of the need for extramarital outlets between two men than between a man and a woman.
He notes: The truth is, homosexuals are not entirely normal; and to flatten their varied and complicated lives into a single, moralistic model is to miss what is essential and exhilarating about their otherness. (Sullivan, Virtually Normal, pp. 202-203)
Paula Ettelbrick, a law professor and homosexual activist has said:
Being queer is more than setting up house, sleeping with a person of the same gender, and seeking state approval for doing so. . Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex, sexuality, and family; and in the process, transforming the very fabric of society. . We must keep our eyes on the goals of providing true alternatives to marriage and of radically reordering societys view of reality. (partially quoted in Beyond Gay Marriage,
Stanley Kurtz, The Weekly Standard, August 4, 2003)
Evan Wolfson has stated:
Isnt having the law pretend that there is only one family model that works (let alone exists) a lie? . marriage is not just about procreation-indeed is not necessarily about procreation at all. (quoted in What Marriage Is For, by Maggie Gallagher, The Weekly Standard, August 11, 2003)
Mitchel Raphael, editor of the Canadian homosexual magazine Fab, says:
Ambiguity is a good word for the feeling among gays about marriage. Id be for marriage if I thought gay people would challenge and change the institution and not buy into the traditional meaning of till death do us part and monogamy forever. We should be Oscar Wildes and not like everyone else watching the play. (quoted in Now Free To Marry, Canadas Gays Say, Do I? by Clifford Krauss, The New York Times, August 31, 2003)
1972 Gay Rights Platform Demands: Repeal of all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or number of persons entering into a marriage unit.
[Also among the demands was the elimination of all age of consent laws.]
