No one is talking about ripping gay couples apart.
The question is why you demand a distinct relationship be equated with one it does not qualify for. Or that children missing a parental setting where one gender and at least one natural parent is missing must be equated with a natural family.
Those are the demands of denial. Never a good thing.
It is simply a fact that marriage at it's most basic essence is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Gay couples don't qualify.
Furthermore, we are protecting the natural and best setting for family. It deserves a special designation, which is why it does.

How many SSM's have your opinions been able to prevent? This is why you're irrelevant.

Your "friend" Jade says he doesn't even know you. Calls you Jizzybird like I do! And says I'm not a homophobe. What do you make of that Fruitloops?

I wonder if those other 200 "friends" of yours are as loyal.

Try and relax Fruitloops, go hunt homophobes somewhere else.

Gay people occur in nature every day, so that argument is a bit silly.
No one will EVER say that having a loving Mother and Father is a wonderful thing.
Same sex couples marrying will not prevent one straight couple from raising kids. So you have nothing to fear.
But that's completely outside the argument for marriage, isn't it? NO ONE is talking about ripping all of the children out of gay couple's homes, now are they? No one is proposing sterilizing all gay folks, or preventing all adoption.
So gay folks will continue to have and to raise kids, just as they do now.
You can argue anything you like about parenting, but parenting isn't at issue here.
The only question is whether or not you can prove that marriage will NOT be beneficial to gay couples and their kids, or that allowing gay couples to marry will harm other people and THEIR kids.
Nothing else is relevant.
So, keep trying.
The government ripped 436 children out of their homes and away from their biological parents with no evidence of any abuse or crime except polygamy.

You think gay people have it bad? Marriage equality for everyone. Not just approved groups.

Way to win converts! Tell him good stuff about same sex marriage like you started to do.

Marriage is good for society. All kinds of marriages. There is no "one" right way!

I'm not trying to 'prevent' anything. I'm simply proving that there is no such thing as ss marriage.

You've NEVER proven any such thing. You've only managed to prove it to yourself. Had you proven it, the Illinois Senate would have followed your advice.

What legitimate practical logical comparisons could be made? What family structure can be compared to children born to, and raised by, their own biological parents in a low conflict stable marital home? A SSC, male or female, raising a child from birth, are still two men or two women. Only one of the pair can be the bio parent. Shouldn't they be compared to other same sex pairs raising a child from birth where only one of that pair is the bio parent?

It's a darn shame you have to resort to making up 200 friends. And creating troll threads where they all vote the way you want.

Talk about a loser! Grow up you silly jackass!

It also links mothers to mothers in a marriage


Oh like mothers to thier mothers, the children's grandmother.
and fathers to fathers withing a marriage,
Fathers to their fathers, the children's grandfather.
and parents to their children, and children to the parents that raise them.
Oh like two adult brothers who raise thier children?
It also links spouse to spouse, in the same way that marriage links spouse to spouse, and for the same reasons, while providing toe same beneficial protections that strengthens families.
So it links male spouse to female spouse, to female spouse, to female spouse, and to female spouse. It would strenghten that family too. Kody Brown and the Sister Wives thank their lesbian sisters, and gay brothers, for their support.

Exactly! Which at the most would equate to a step parent situation, but with the added negative of missing one gender.

This also puts the child in the Cinderella Effect situation, 100 times more dangerous to the child's life than a natural home.

Are you seriously insinuating that the state in the worst situation of 50 follows logical advice?

Silly stupid.
