Not quite, Jizzy cannot effectively rig the votes that fast. Takes him a little time. It's a rather tedious process, and a very challenging one for an idiot like Jizzy!

Not to mention childishly silly. But that's our dopey Jizmbirdy58! He's an arrested development loser/idiot.

I have no idea
still that idea would work
every religion could define "marriage" for their own little private cult
and the government would only recognize the contract of a civil union, which is all the government needs, the legal contract.
One church could call marriage between only a man and a woman
Another church could do same sex marriages
and even Mormon boy could have his poly marriage and call it that
and all would be recognized equally by the law governing civil unions
and they could point fingers at each other all day long calling the other heathens and it would mean absolutely nothing.
The nice part about doing it that way is that even non-relationship unions could be done. 2 older women for example not in a sexual relationship, but close friends with no family could join in such a civil contract for mutual support.
Hmmmmmm....can't say that it doesn't have any merit.....perhaps the gov't could issue a "relationship coupon" good for one relationship of one's choice complete with gov't benefits. Kody uses his for wife number 1, she uses it for wife #2, who in turn uses it for wife #3. That would help the fundamentalist Mormons.

I don't think it'd fly though.. Let's just keep marriage as a conjugal union of husband and wife. But we'll use the civil union concept for non conjugal marital unions. Everybody wins. Thanks for the idea Big D.

Lawsuits idiot! Just like the Boy Scouts. Churches would have their tax exemption taken away if they discriminate against gays being married and sued.

Of course Big D's plan is stupid. His first job to initiate it would be to tell all the gay married couples that he's downgrading their marriages to civil unions. I'd love to see how that works out for him!

Then of course he'll have to sell it to all the hetero married couples.

Big D is a simplistic dummy and we can safely dismiss his views on the subject as naivety and dopiness.

I don't mean to be so rude, it's just that he is insignificant.

Yes! And soon other ships will sail too. In it's wake.

Not true.

Churches have always had the right to turn away anyone for any reason.

The states that already have marriage equality have stated that churches are under no obligation whatever to marry people.

True...right now. Of course no gay in their right mind would file suit against a Church until it's legal in all States. The cause comes first, I'm talking about the future.

Good point.....Dusty, your response.
My response, you and your fellow troll are trying to kill the forum by flooding it with red herring posts. Guess you know there is no real argument against gay marriage, and that is why you are doing it. Your fellow troll is clearly flying under false colors, and is really against gay marriage, just like you are.

Too funny!

Is that your best argument against equal rights? Anyone advocating them for groups you don't approve of is a fake?

Tell the judge. "Your honor, we should deny them rights because they're fakes, they don't really want them thy're just trying to trick us!" Hopefully he'll lock up your dumbass for contempt. Cool your jets for 30 days!

Boy does he! Must be rough on the grand kids.

We can only hope he doesn't teach them his hate and ignorance about a loving committed family of more than two spouses.

Oh really....you don't seem to complain for your rights when your genitals prevent u from marrying your brother, sister, mother, father, first cousin in some states? They don't matter then. What no genitsl reference in the constitution?
LOL. So desperate to talk about anything but gay marriage. Why is that?

Other than equal rights, no.

No reason other than equal rights.

How the heck in the name of God you say doesn't exist, did our society survive into the 21st century under the quaint notion of marriage as a union of husband and wife ORIENTATED around their sexual physical union, and the products of that union, children named Rosie?
Have men suddenly become pregnant? Women producing sperm?
Troll boy, you don't have to be able to reproduce in order to marry.
