There is so much talk today about so called "gay marriage" that I thought I would point out that the Talmud actually addressed this issue over 1,500 years ago. According to the Talmud, Elohim has postponed bringing judgment to the Gentile nations because they have at least kept three commandments:
Said Rab Judah: These are the thirty righteous men among the nations of the world by whose virtue the nations of the world continue to exist. Ulla said: These are the thirty commandments which the sons of Noah took upon themselves but they observe three of them, namely,(i) they do not draw up a kethubah document [marriage contract] for males, (ii) they do not weigh flesh of the dead in the market, and (iii) they respect the Torah.
That's right, the Talmud teaches that Elohim withholds judgment from the Gentile nations of the world because they do not give marriage certificates to homosexuals, they do not sell human meat in the market, and while they do not keep the Torah, they do respect the Torah.
Concerning "gay marriage" let me give an allegory:
I tell my four children that they can have cookies. They come to me asking the "right" to choose whatever kind of cookie they want. I know that in the cookie jar we have only two chocolate cookies and two vanilla cookies. They cannot be granted the right to choose whatever kind of cookie they want, perchance they all (or even three of them) choose chocolate. Being rightfully in charge, I take four small pieces of paper and write "chocolate" on two and "vanilla" on two and fold them all up. I give each child one slip of paper and tell them that if I gave them one that said "chocolate" they may choose a chocolate cookie, and if I gave them one that said "vanilla" they may choose a vanilla cookie. One of the children chooses a piece of paper that says "vanilla" but insists that they want chocolate, even attempting to change the word on their piece of paper. Is this acceptable behavior?
One thing I do not see many people address is the logical fallacy of a "right" to gay marriage. For something to be a "right" it would have to be acceptable even if everyone made that choice. But what would happen to the human race in just one generation if everyone chose homosexuality? What would happen if even a large enough number chose homosexuality to bring the birthrate to sub-sustaining levels? Would it be acceptable to wipe out the human race? If it would not work for everyone to choose homosexuality, what percentage should be allowed that choice? If more than that percentage make that choice, who gets told that tey cannot choose, and on what basis if it is in fact a "right"?
It is simply a matter of logic.
