Let me tell you why He doesn't do it. Not because God doesn't understand true feelings and sincere desires of these wonderful people in LGBT community.
But if He let them do it(marry) they will never become Gods. God Father wants them to become Gods.
What is Godhood?
Godhood is to become Heavenly Parent and to have children/posterity. Only male and female together procreate.

How do infertile women and sterile men fit into this framework?

The best kind.

It's honestly not that different than any other type of Christian who wants to cherry-pick the Bible to match their beliefs while maintaining their faith (which is, pretty much all Christians). Their beliefs are hard to let go, but they don't like some part of them. It's pretty standard cognitive dissonance.

I mean, sure, it seems really odd for someone who is gay to embrace a religion that refers to their behavior as an abomination, but there are ways of writing off those verses. This is really no different than women who want to be Christians while being held equal in society, or wealthy people who want to hold onto their possession being Christians, or Christian bankers. And really, pretty much any Christian will justify behavior that they feel is bad. I've talked to ministers who are vindictive, rude, and dishonest, all because I didn't believe in their religion, and they made no apologies about it.

Gay Christians just get more attention because homosexuality is still a giant bugbear for conservative Christians.

God did not sanctified gay marriage.
I will not rebel against God.
I don't want to do this.
I have courage to say this.
But my Heavenly Father never said that to love gay people and to serve them is sin. To love and to serve them is righteousness.

... and that addresses my point how, exactly?

I see it as no different than any other Christian who bends the rules to their liking. They cherry pick just like the rest.

I'm generally disinterested in thinking about others because of their sexuality
