Awwwwww....Joanie is talking to me again. I love it when the Glibtees play the vocabulary game. Word origins are fun. Don't forget this one:

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php...
A male lesbian is a physiologically heteosexual male who wishes he'd been born a girl. He feels alienated by the social standards of gender roles. He may be a crossdresser or consider himself transgendered, but he is probably not transsexual. His ideal would be to be able to be his feminine self in a relationship with a biological female. If he is open about this, he may be ridiculed by both the gay and straight communities.

I think your picture should be on every package of condoms. Underneath your photo are the words, "DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!"

The fact they did reject serving a same sex wedding proves Quest wrong.
Actually, you've been whining incessantly that these Christians were sued because of their refusal to provide goods and services as a public accommodation. How does that prove Quest wrong when reality confirms her statement?
Brian_G wrote:
Religious and artistic freedom trump PC regulations and forcing Christians to attend same sex wedding ceremonies or any other religious service.
Nope. And all the cases you cite prove this.

If you love freedom, keep marriage one man and one woman.
If you love being a bigot, continue to advocate discrimination against and infringement of the fundamental rights of a minority you dislike. Like Brian does.

No, but they are the originals. Besides it far more accurately describes them.
Not even all Greeks agree with that assertion as many of them refer to the island by its main city, not the name of the island itself.

NorCal is simply using YOUR definition of marriage as consisting of ONE man and ONE woman united as HUSBAND and WIFE, small Peter. Are you saying your own definition is hostile and by using it you're aren't being very nice?

Sorry, no hostility......NO NEED TO......Kody only has one LEGAL wife.......the rest are "SUPPOSED" wives per their statements, but there is NOTHING registered to back up their claim!!!

Why would I personally feel ANY connection to women I DON'T even know? You are really reaching on that one......and besides, I ONLY have one legal wife and that's enough for me:-)

Still can't gasp the constitutional concept of equal protection, eh small Peter? The state can indeed restrict or infringe the fundamental rights of a class of people if it can articulate a compelling government interest for doing so.

As usual, you deflect when unable to answer even simple "yes" or "no" questions. Did your parents pay your wife to take you off their hands?

Let's use this one.

In Murphy v. Ramsey, SCOTUS defined marriage as "The union for life of one man and one woman in the holy estate of matrimony".

1885, a case regarding polygamist and voter registration........I'm wondering if there is a way you could get into the 21st century........the cases you speak of have NO bearing on marriage as we understand it today!!!

Editorial comments from a voter registration case have no relevance to the fundamental right of marriage.

How is it, "The union for life of one man and one woman in the holy estate of matrimony". any different "...on marriage as we understand it today"? That sums up the understanding of marriage throughout the history of the Republic. The beauty of it, it was before the political sexual identity labels became all the rage. Just men and women.
