Better get your shit straight loser because MOST people identify gays as being a danger to children now.
For centuries MOST people thought the earth was flat. Try using facts instead of outdated public opinion.....lemming.

What you posted is ridiculous......lides was discussing multiple adults with regards to marriage and you bring children into the discussion which is NOT the same....why?
If you want to call someone screaming "you can't count!" a rational discussion.

It's the same as some moron screaming "you can't tell a man from a woman!" as a rational discussion against SSM.

"Let's ignore Frankie" lides proposed, as a dodge because he had no argument.

Marriage was created so children may be raised in a home by their mother and father. Every child raised by a same sex couple is raised either motherless or fatherless.
Run to the video store and buy all the "Leave It To Beaver" episodes you can. Also, you can look for "Lassie" and "Father Knows Best." That should keep you well grounded in your delusional world;0)

Let's not forget the children in orphanages, foster homes and (horror) on the streets that would love to have a stable home without abuse and negligence. Those that just wish someone would care.

Most of the Court’s argument is dedicated to the original meaning of the Constitution’s religion clauses, but also noteworthy is its passing comment on the basis of the law in question, a basis that the Court at that time apparently found unquestionably legitimate:“Polygamy has always been odious among the northern and western nations of Europe ... and from the earliest history of England polygamy has been treated as an offense against society.”
Reynolds has never been overturned and indeed has been cited as an authority by the modern Supreme Court. In it the Court tells us straightforwardly the basis of laws prohibiting polygamy: moral disapproval of the practice.

I've seen that show, not that particular episode. Did you know that TWICE as many young girls are molested as young boys??? All by grown MEN. Does that tell you anything, anything at all?
Perhaps you think a 55 year old man arranging for sex with a 14 year old girl is just a normal "heterosexual" encounter.
Pedophiles are pedophiles, they are attracted to underage CHILDREN. Period. Adults with other consenting adults is fine by me....as long as no one gets hurt. CHILDREN of both genders get hurt and two thirds of them are girls. Pedophilia has nothing to do with the normal attraction between adults.
Pedophilia is in a class by itself and it is a crime. ALWAYS.
Anecdotally, I would say that the average straight man has more interest in a teen-aged girl than the average gay man has in teen-age boys. I'm not saying the straight men are likely to act in a bad way on their attraction. But if you listen to men talking about the women passing by on the street, they're pretty unashamedly attracted to youth.

You're an idiot and a game player.
I never mentioned a post dipshit.
Fact is if I was a God fearing Christian I couldn't open a business given the fear I'd have over offending some queer who'd manipulate a law made for real discrimination should I not bake some gay couple a cake or tell them as a photographer I could not take a picture of the both of them in the nude rubbing on each other over fear I'd get sued - and they might win.
Whining??? You mean like gays do daily???
LOL!!
I see. So you don't want to open a public business because you might have to sell your services to people you don't like based solely on the fact that they have characteristics you don't share. Got it. That's probably a wise choice.

It's common knowledge and proven in court that Sandusky was a pedophile, not a "homosexual pedophile" nor a "heterosexual pedophile", just a pedophile.
The spin is when you put the "heterosexual" label on him.
That's a statement of fact. You can call it a spin all you want, but it doesn't alter its accuracy. And the point was made because ANOTHER poster claimed he was a "homosexual pedophile", which he is not. The post was for clarification, not spin.

Don't let facts get in the way of your nonsense posts Frizzy.

You can't include "Lassie". It centered around a single mom and her child. Obviously that child should have been taken away from her, at least in Brian_G's world.

Aw go on! You know I want it for everyone, Mr Silly! My example of three gay men takes away all your silly objections such as forced baby marriage. Do you respond intelligently? Of course not, you're a dope.
So the objections are gone for EVERYONE? Are you stupid, or what?

Still using that? Using your lack of logic, a husband and wife couldn't have children because they would then become more than 2. Can't be giving those families all those 'greater protections.' You're dumber than a shoe.
They aren't married to their children, stupid.
