Address the issue? Okay:

Illinois approved same-sex civil unions in 2010. Last week, the Illinois Senate approved gay marriage. In the coming weeks, the Illinois House will approve gay marriage, then the Governor will sign the law makng Illinois the 10th state to allow gay marriage.

And there is nothing you can do to stop it.

Feel better?

Your citation is not the latest, and as for the rest: http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2012/10/30/1110...
Ever heard of open marriage? Not every marriage is about monogamy, and that's not illegal.
Sorry, I don't accept hissy fit gay twirl articles from a GLBT magazine. Please reference a serious source.

An 'open' marriage is no marriage at all.

Silly girl.

What does free speech have to do with marriage?
If you read the context silly girl, you'd know the response was about the free expression of religion.

Why would you be opposed to gay and lesbian couples entering into legal, committed relationships?
I don't oppose that, they just are not marriage.

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

You can say what you wish, as always.
But when you support the creation of laws that are designed only to discriminate against people you don't like, where there is no rational state interest interest in that discrimination, expect a fight.
And history has shown it is a fight you will lose.
Nothing to smirk about, there.
1. The laws of marriage are already present. You are the one attempting to create new laws.

2. Those laws were designed to protect the sole natural source of human fruit, and the best setting to nurture future members of our society (SCOTUS).

3. The government has no prevailing interest in supporting discriminatory friendships.

4. History has shown the opposite. No attempted rise of calling gay couples married has ever survived for any length of time. Anywhere. Ever.

I like how you think I'm a girl, and I also am very interested to know that my marriage license is null and void just because you say so.

Each individual is free to conceptualize marriage for themselves, any way they choose.
But legally, marriage is a fundamental right of the individual.
The only eligibility requirement for fundamental rights is being human.

How can a word be rendered meaningless?
Isn't the purpose of all words to label something?
Now, if you are trying to say that something will render your own marriage meaningless, or your own concept of marriage meaningless, that sounds more like a personal problem.
You can't blame others for that sort of thing.
Did you read what he wrote??? What grade are you in???

If someone makes marriage anything they can conceptualize, what does it mean?

Smirk.

We've asked you before where your fruit and nut theory is codified into current marriage law.
You have not yet supplied any valid references.
Where did I ever say it was a theory?

Do you know the difference between a theory and an analogy???

What grade did you say you were in???

There is no valid peer-reviewed study that shows any such thing, as you well know.
You need to explain, in detail, how allowing those lesbian couples to legally marry would make it worse for their children. How does having legally married parents make any child's life worse?
When talking about marriage and children here, we aren't talking about who is allowed to raise a child - that's already encoded in law and isn't going to change.
We are only discussing whether or not having legally married parents is beneficial or harmful to a child.
Make your case.
Valid stats only, please.
1. Your denial does not change the facts that a gay blogger made six charges against the Regnerus study. They were all addressed and dismissed.

2. There is no such thing as ss marriage. Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Which brings us to the claim that they are parents;

3. A lesbian couple cannot procreate children, hence they are a defective desolate contradiction of the very goal of evolution.

4. According to the study, a lesbian couple can't be any worse than the worst for the children.

5. You have no authority or power to dictate the parameters of a discussion. What grade are you in???

Smile.

Don't feel any different.

1. IL politicians are notorious for doing stupid and illegal things.

2. There is no such thing as ss marriage. Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Gay couples are a defective desolate contradiction to the primary goal of evolution. Ss marriage is an oxymoron.

Neither your opinion or mine holds sway against reality.

So you think a piece of paper has greater power than reality?

You argue like a blonde.

You're that odd smirky/bazinga/think its clever to call yourself a lesbian trapped in a man's body thingy, right?

As we've discussed before, you should feel free to never respond to any of my posts.

The piece of paper that says I'm married IS reality.

You argue like a person who wants to sound like you have a large vocabulary but doesn't actually know how to use any of the words correctly; you frequently misuse words in the wrong tense and have essentially made yourself out to be a blathering idiot. You don't understand the nuances of the words you use and you don't understand the nuances of this issue. The fact of the matter is, there is no real argument against gay marriage except for a religious one, and while that is valid in an individual's personal life it has no place in legislation. Trying to create an intellectual opposition to gay marriage with 'evolutionary' strawmen and bullshit about children (which have NOTHING to do with marriage) is a waste of time. Bigotry is bigotry and I suspect gays are not the only group you are prejudiced against, and I'm sure you have all manner of unnecessarily verbose reasoning for that too. You should really take a step back and acknowledge your cisgender heterosexual privilege and grow the fuck up.
