There's no doubt in my mind homosexual couples are as fit to be good parents as heterosexuals. You're right that various studies have shown adoptive children of homosexuals are as well-adjusted as any other child.
But as loving as homosexuals might be as parents, they can't replace a loving mother and a father.
And they don't have to.

A single mother does not replace a loving mother and a father.
A single father does not replace a loving mother and a father.
A single gay parent of either gender does not replace a loving mother and a father.

The state has an interest in promoting parenting. It does not have an interest in discouraging parenting. It does not have an interest in discouraging marriage.

Sorry, but you have no rational reason to deny people gay marriage. You can believe what you want, but we will steamroll over you.

Brace yourself.

Do you read the news? If gay marriage is imposed on society (it damn sure won't be voted in), do you think it would be possible a father could marry his son to avoid inheritance tax? Are you good with that?
Is it possible a father could marry his daughter to avoid inheritance tax right now?

See how stupid that sounds, moron?

Obama visited Denver, Colorado to push his attack on the Constitution and the Second Amendment on Wednesday. While he used several handpicked policeman as a backdrop, not one of Colorado’s sheriffs were included in the event, not that they would have wanted to be given their statement contrary to Obama’s policies. But it was more than that. Sheriffs from 62 counties were kept out of the event because they oppose the Marxist-in-chiefs attacks on the Constitution. However, they would not be silence. They stood and defended our rights and freedoms against the Marxist minded people that now control our government.
Exactly what part of what policy is an attack on the second amendment?

That's what I thought.

Next.

Well let's start off with the fact that marriage has already gone through a fundamental transformation over the ages. It started off as a business deal exchanging a piece of property, the woman, from her father to her husband in exchange for money, livestock service. It is now a civil contract between two consenting adults. If someone wants to have their marriage blessed and performed by a priest, minister, rabbi or imam then they are free to do so.
As the effect on children the American Academy of Pediatrics has weighed in on the subject stating;
“The academy’s new policy statement says same-sex marriage helps guarantee rights, benefits and long-term security for children, while acknowledging that it does not now ensure access to federal benefits. When marriage is not an option, the academy said, children should not be deprived of foster care or adoption by single parents or couples, whatever their sexual orientation….”
“The academy cited research finding that a child’s well-being is much more affected by the strength of relationships among family members and a family’s social and economic resources than by the sexual orientation of the parents.“There is an emerging consensus, based on extensive review of the scientific literature, that children growing up in households headed by gay men or lesbians are not disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to children of heterosexual parents.”
Opponents of marriage equality are simply trying enforce their own beliefs on others.
bingo!

<quoted text>It is hard to imagine people being scared of homosexuals. However, RealDave's phobia denotes fear and bigotry only, then far more heterophobic homosexuals than homophobic heterosexuals exist.
Fear need not follow from hatred or vice versa RealDave. For instance, one could fear riding a motorcycle, but one need not hate motorcycles because one is scared of riding one. Similarly, one could hate Jar Jar Binks ®, but nobody fears him. Homosexuals and homophiles like you know this, and you define homophobia in terms of hatred of homosexuals or homosexuality. RealDave's definition of homophobia includes an opposition to the demands of homosexuals, which is very curious.
I may not own a motorcycle yet I have no problem sharing the road with them & believe they should have the same rights & freedoms as when I drive my car.

I don't all them names.

You don't want to "share the road" with homosexuals & call them names. You must be afraid of something else why would you care?

It's what you 'love' that's problematic. You're the most reviled anomaly in human history, an unintended byproduct of our development. You're slag in the smelting process - we accept your existence but the alloy is strongest once you're isolated from it.

<quoted text> You have all the same rights whether you're gay or not &, gays even have a few more out of the guise of equality, but let me get this correct. Your plans are to rewrite the law, the Bible, & the definition of marriage, all to satisfy gay folks yearning to feel normal. Let me guess, you're Christian also!
You're from New Jersey. Nothing was rewritten.

For their "civil unions" they took the existing marriage statute, copied word for word, and changed the word "marriage" to "civil union."

What they should have done, and what they will do eventually, is scrap that, and instead take the existing marriage statute and change the words "man" and "woman" to "person" and "person."

P.S. We already feel normal, or we wouldn't be petitioning for legal recognition of our marriages. But your hang-ups are duly noted.

Get ready. You're going to get gay marriage shoved down your throat, and NJ is one of the most likely places it will happen soon. Choke on it.

Do you honestly think you are being clever or making a point with that?

You keep demonstrating you are not "a thinker." You can stop now. We already know you're not going to lead a philosophical revolution.

To answer your question, because they are not receiving incorrect messaging from society that being straight is bad and evil and condemning you to hell, etc. etc.

Duh. You seriously couldn't figure that out? You give Jersey a bad name. I'm down here in Florida telling people I'm glad I grew up in New Jersey because people are smarter and move faster up there. You should move to Alabama or the Pine Barrens.

<quoted text> I bet you still believe in Santa claus & the Easter bunny! I thought the first rule of being liberal was believe none of what you hear & some of what you see! Maybe not. I might be mistaking that phrase with my own logic. Again, why don't straight kids commit suicide because they've prayed to be gay, but God didn't answer? This is a common story amongst gays, so answer that. Why is gay taboo in almost everywhere in the world? You wouldn't be stupid enuff to believe that the world is wrong & you & the few are right would you? The Bible has nothing to do with it when it doesn't cater to your agenda. You were just on here a week ago arguing that this country was founded on Christian values now the Bible has nothing to do with it. You're talking about rights under marriage laws stupid, not the meaning of what marriage meant, because you know like I know it meant the same damn thing, or was your coveted forefathers marriages just legal contacts to ensure if the husband died , his spouses father got the inheritance? You keep believing think tanks & govt alphabet soup. They all lie to push their agenda. That's what the PR department is for idiot!
Wow, according to your ip, you really get around; according to your arguments, you've never left your small town for more than a weekend. Kids don't commit suicide BECAUSE they are gay or straight; they commit suicide BECAUSE of the way they perceive their chances for a full, happy life--bullying, isolation, violence, hopelessness, etc., kills without regard to sexuality. As to your suggestion that other parts of the world discriminate against homosexuals, well, that would be right--they're called Muslim extremists and maybe you and the rest of the Teavangelical Taliban should join up.

Gays insist they're not after special rights, just equality. They lie. They've already been given special rights. See what happens when a gay gets his ass kicked, in a fair fight, with a normal person. All the gay has to do is proclaim his gayness and the fight becomes a "hate crime", punishable under a whole set of stricter guidelines. If ten gays jumped a normal person's ass, it doesn't constitute a "hate crime" unless it can be proven, by witnesses, he was attacked 'because' he was straight. If that's not 'special rights', what is?
Wow. And here I thought you were slightly smarter than the NJ guy.

You're not.

Hate crimes laws = special rights? Really? There's something wrong with you.

That's the problem with gay marriage. Once the definition is changed to "include" gays, it would "exclude" someone else.
My guess is pleuralists would be next demanding multiple wives under the new definition.
Who's to say their alternate lifestyle shouldn't be included too?
And this exemplifies the fundamental breakdown in critical thinking.

What makes you think they can't make their argument right now?

A man and two wives is much more closely analogous to a man and one wife than it is to two men. In fact, most Mormons who would be interested in polygamy would be offended if you compared them to two men.

They have their best argument right now. You just don't think very carefully.

You can't say that "anything different" = "everything different." That's simpleton nonsense.

I guess if we let black people into the white country club then we have to let polygamists into the white country club. See how stupid that sounds?

YOUR statement above clearly is seen as you homophobic and living in fear RealDave. Interestingly, while YOU homosexuals vehemently reject being considered mentally ill, you have no problems regarding those who dislike your homosexuality as mentally ill or afraid.

Anal Fissure in Gay Population

Anal fissure leosanus, often confused with hemorrhoids, is common among male homosexuals. Anal and peri-anal ulcers are also common among male homosexuals and can also be confused with anal fissure so it is important to go to the doctor to obtain a diagnosis.

The Book of Colon and Rectal Surgeons states that if you are gay and have an ulcer or an anal fissure, it is recommended that you get tested for other conditions such as Syphilis, Chlamydia, Haemophilus Ducreyi, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes Simplex virus, HIV, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and Kaposi’s Sarcoma. If you are gay and practice anal sex, any fissure or anal ulcer should be tested for any of these conditions because you are at a higher risk of getting them.

Smell that smell, oldsters? Don't fret. It's the aroma of decomposition. You thought you had to die first, didn't you? You don't. You're rotting from the inside, and that sweet/sickly stench can't ALL stay inside you. It envelopes you wherever you migrate -- to the post office to mail the kiddies a crisp fiver for their birthdays; to the dollar store to painfully unwad your bills to pay for a cheap plastic dish drainer; to the medical supply store for some extra pillows to support your deteriorating frame. Get friendly with the stench, carol, until you can finally dismiss it as "just your imagination." It won't help in your transition to nothingness, but it will perhaps get you through your few remaining, circumscribed years. Soon, carol, a box will be just the right size for you. A big box ...
And the oreo. He's 40-ish, but fat, and likely has a fat-laden Hispanic diet. He's also terribly frustrated, and trying to keep his B/P under control, with little success. Soon his oaf sons will be announcing that they've gotten some little slvt preggers -- perhaps a white one. Perhaps the dad will show up at your "rancher" and blow out the windows with a shotgun. Shortly, you will imagine that your "blackness" is peeling off, crumbling, exposing the soft, greedy, chalky whiteness beneath. Yes, oreo, these are your brothers under the skin. Go to them oreo, for surely they will welcome you into their makeshift camps, will welcome your oaf sons penetrating their fat, clueless, dropout daughters. In fact, they might even be willing to sell them for not too steep a price. Very shortly, the Hispanic common law will be unfaithful to you. If she is unable to attract new meat, she will be eying the corners of the cheap rancher, wondering where and how she might hang herself, just to escape the odious pipe fitter and the sons who seem to get arrested almost on a bi-weekly basis these days. Why, just scrubbing the hash marks from the toilet is enough to make a woman want to put a gun in her mouth!
Go to them, Newark. Don't you recognize yourself in the prose on here. Rest assured that you are irrevocably part of this duprass (google it!). Remember this: There is no free will, oreo; there is only the preordained. And god's got nothing to do with it.
Dude I'm not gay, okay? So stop waking up with me on your mind. As I so ignorantly stated to you already. You should be looking for the dude that your overweight mother raped the 1 & only time she ever got laid. To just think, that smell in which you described perfectly is the place you came from. The thought of the stench makes me want to vomit. 50yrs done past & you still can't wash it off. Anyhow! Later butt muncher, salad tosser, ass eater, gotta continue to feed the truth to your affiliates over stuffed on lies & propaganda!

<quoted text> Evidently you are, because I wasn't trying to scare you . I was waiting for you to say some dumshit about bullying. So your implying that gay kids commit suicide because they're bullied. Are try the only bullied kids? No! But straight kids ain't running around killing themselves. Why is that? Because they're not mentally confused! You answer my question backwards. I asked why don't straight kids pray to be gay & when they realize they're straight commit suicide? Because they're comfortable with themselves. Bullying has been a part of life since the beginning of time, yet suicide from bullying is a new phenomenon in the last generation. You all close your eyes to the statistics & push blame at the normal for you all confusing these kids. Y'all have them thinking about sex too early to process the issue correctly. In the past 10 years a shit load of pre teens have committed suicide because tall told them it was cool to be gay & totally f ucked their weak minds up.
This is very simple:

What word do we use to show that more than one person owns something? Let's say, a crack pipe.

We would say, "That's OUR crack pipe." Right? "our."

"Our" indicates ownership.

What if you thought it was your crack pipe, because it looks the same as your crack pipe, but it really belongs to the druggie next to you on the corner.

We're still talking about ownership.

Just add one letter: Y.

Your. It is YOUR crack pipe.

***** OUR = We own it. YOUR = you own it.

Likewise: When you are trying to say "you are" (rather than "I is") you just replace the "a" with an apostrophe '

You are a crack head.
You're a crack head.

So here's the easy rule of thumb. If you want to use the word "your" in a sentence, re-read the sentence and replace the word "your" with "you are." If it makes sense, then use "you're." If it doesn't make sense, then use "your."

If you're not smart enough to determine which makes sense, resume using your crack pipe.

Covidien - 595 layoffs
Kinetic Concepts - 427 layoffs
St. Jude Medical - 300 layoffs
