<quoted text>I point out, most same sex marriage supporters use insults because they don't base their views on rationality. They base their views on the good feeling of being inclusive, tolerant and enlightened.
Same sex marriage is like the ersatz equality of women in combat roles.
.
<quoted text>The US Supreme Court has ruled, wardens can't restrict a prisoner's right to marriage. So, more likely prison chaplains and lay prisons will be performing forced prison marriages in the event of same sex marrage.

<quoted text>Try to think about the consequences of your radical redefinition of marriage before you change the law.

<quoted text>Many same sex marriage supporters think the question,'would it make society better' is stupid; they ask,'will it bring equality'. They prefer equality to anything else.

Right, go after the criminals, not the polygamists for chrissakes!
Some black people commit welfare fraud...see where I'm going with this?
I do but I also read that 65% of polygamists are on welfare vs. 6% of the "general" population. That 65% is probably about 500 people(okay maybe a 1000, I dunno) vs. the 6% of the general population which probably numbers in the millions and millions. So yeah, that small group, while committing a lot of welfare fraud among their group, is only a tiny fraction of all the welfare fraud committed in the U.S.

I donít have any god to say about anything LOL
( just kidding I have typos all the time, but that one was funny )
but seriously, I honestly donít care about poly marriage. I donít like the way some people abuse it, but the concept itself I donít have a problem with.
face/desk. They're not abusing poly marriage (from a welfare perspective), they're abusing poly NON marriage. Go back to the whole "they're not married so the mom's can claim to be single mother's and collect welfare" stuff....

Do you think that low of your self, you seem to feel the need to launch into verbal abuse with every post. Seek help from a professional, I am sure that drugs can help you out. Until then carry on, we understand.

I'm sure that you are not. In fact, I'd bet that it took you a long time to learn not to stare at an orange juice box just because it said concentrate.

LOL! You are calling someone else ugly!? Damn, you hardly look human.
And I do fear that I'd risk my life if I put a pic of my face up, because fundies are violent, hateful and racist. That doesn't mean they are the only people who ever commit violent crimes. Now go back to typing "pants down" into search engines.
Yes, I am pretty sure that you are as ugly as sin...Have you been shopping lately? They are selling lives at the mall, you should get one. Or, are you afraid that someone in the world would put you out of our misery ?

So true.....I'm genuinely puzzled about why same sex supporters feel threatened by anyone else having rights to marriage.
That's an easy one.. It's because they are the very bigots that they accuse us of being. They do not want to watch others get the same treatment that they want to receive, because it might cheapen what they get...They are being elitists..

That isnít the problem, you would indeed hope that votes didnít count if the majority of brown eyed people put up a ballot and passed a proposition to deny blue eyed people the vote
Such a measure would be deemed unconstitutional, and rightly so.
The problem is that we allow unconstitutional measures to be voted on in the first place.
How out of state interests and strong arm their own flocks to come up with loads of cash to fund an unconstitutional measure. That is what we need to fix
How typical of you....He states that we have no voice or control, and you post that we must take control....Brilliant.
