Supports constitutional amendment defining marriage

As a Christian and an American, I'd like to go on the record stating my support for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution defining marriage as "the unity of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime." I have a few reasons for supporting such an amendment. Two are from the Bible and two are observations from nature.

First, from the Bible. When God created mankind, He created Adam (the man) first. Later, He created Eve (the woman) for the man. And Genesis 2:24 specifically states that God's plan is for a man to be joined to a woman (his wife) in what we would call "marriage." As someone has aptly put it, "God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve."

Many references in the Bible condemn homosexuality as sinful, unnatural and incompatible with God's plan for life. See Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and Romans 1:26-27.

Second, from nature. Procreation demands that there be a man providing the sperm and a woman providing the egg in order to produce a baby. Adam and Steve can't naturally have a baby (no egg). Eve and Evie can't have a baby naturally either (no sperm).

In at least 9 out of 10 gay couples I've observed, one appears more effeminate, emulating the female role, and the other is more masculine.

My point is that if you don't care what the Bible says about homosexuality, at least understand from nature that it isn't normal because it takes a male and a female to procreate, and most gay couples reflect the necessity for a masculine and effeminate personality in their relationships.
