First of all, your arguments are silly. Second, 'prevalence of belief' is an awfully convenient dismissal of religion. It is not 'prevalent'; it is pervasive. Damn near every 'people' everywhere, in history, held/hold religious beliefs. That's not mere 'prevalence'; it runs much deeper than that. Third, in its thousands of years of history, homosexuality scarcely made so much as a cameo appearance within the institution of marriage, until now. We have not been "discriminating" against homosexuals for thousands of years; their 'lifestyle'--their defining 'trait'--the thing they do, that makes them homosexual--does not fit the concept of marriage. Fourth: Could it possibly be the reason that the majority of people in civilization are religious is because, from the time they are born, they are exposed nearly every day of their lives to people warning them of the punishments if they aren't? No. First, not all religions harbor a conception of 'hell'. In fact, many don't. Yet so many religions do view homosexuality as a deviance. What's more, while that my be a factor, it does not explain the almost universal phenomenon, of so many, so vastly different (even contentious) religions, first existing and prevailing amongst their respective ppl, and secondly, having such consistent views on homosexuality. Point being: religion is FAR MORE NATURAL to the human condition, than accepting homosexuality as 'normal'. Finally, if homosexuality were so benign and natural--why did the Am. Psychiatric Association have to sneak the removal of it from the definition of deviance from their manual? Why couldn't they have debated that one openly?
