I have worked professionally dealing with denial and was constantly being told I was crazy. So I went to my psychologist friends and asked them to validate my sanity.
It was hilarious to have someone claim I was crazy and pull out a letter signed by three psychologists. Then I'd ask if they had a letter... Then I asked if their family and friends would say they were crazy...
Everyone on here is afraid to even ask their family and friends.
Smile.
So you're adding ominiscience to your many powers? How nice for you. No, you're not crazy.... you are god. Really.

No dummy, the reference to you getting a dictionary was in reference to the big words I used which you failed to understand.
LOL. Nobody believes that. But your sad attempt at twisting things is funny.

Falling back on old meaningless points, again? Who said heterosexuality was no longer relevant to marriage? No one. And what does heterosexuality have to do with monogamy?
Your comprehension matches your logic...

Monogamy and marriage is rooted in providing a long lasting and stable environment for procreation. Divorce, the lack of social stigma against single parenting and government support of single parents have subverted the constraint of marriage.

The result is that many no longer bother with marriage. Moreover, the social health of children in every aspect is plummeting as a result.

Now the attempted intrusion of any type of gender coupling being labeled marriage further dilutes the institution. Frankie's point is well taken, if we have fatally undermined the original purpose, and diluted the institution to friendships, why deny a host of other aspects of friendship. The demand for 'equality' by other relationships besides duplicate genders will quickly make it's claim.

That is simple common sense...

Smirk.

No. Wouldn't dream of it.
Because here is the proof that you are the liar. Please read this cut-n-paste of the entire exchange between you and akpilot, and witness the fact that nowhere in these exchanges has he posted that he doesn't know what that 4th grade nonsense means. He has posted that there is a difference between knowing what it means and using it.

Knowing what it means is a far cry from actually using it.
If you are trying to make a case for your famed high level of education, you are doing a piss poor job of it.
Seriously, citing the Urban Dictionary? Put down the pipe Rose and join the rest of us in reality.

Thank you for being so easy to prove as the liar. Spin away. I already expect you to attempt to twist this into some bullshit. Save yourself some wasted time and simply admit that you got caught like a rat in a trap of your own making. Dumb-ass. And liar.
What are you claiming I said that was a lie, ugly? Do you even know who said what? The Urban Dictionary is a good source to use for finding the meanings of acronyms used on the internet.

Tis you who cannot twist this. He was answering that 4th grade nonsense with the correct answer. You DID ask, didn't you ? "IKYABWAI" is the question, and "incoherent" was the answer. No twist-ability to that. Straight answer to a silly question. Don't embarrass yourself any more than you already have.
Do you know what "incoherent" means? It indicates he didn't understand what I said. He thought what I said was incoherent. So, I explained it to him, ugly.

You did. And I agree. Heterosexuality is no longer relevant to marriage in many states. Therefore, why should monogamy be still relevant?

Frankie Rizzo is just a troll. He's really against gay marriage. That's clear. He babbles about polygamy, but that's just to flood the forum, because he doesn't have a rational argument against gay marriage. He is so dumb, that when I use the term "red herring", he says I'm talking about a fish!

Hardly, it is in fact carrying the context of gender, rather than illogically embracing every other aspect of marriage.
The fact is, marriage has always been the reunion of genders into a genderless being.
Oh, lord. What crap.

Anyway, the only issue here is marriage as a legal contract. All US citizens should have equal protection under the law, regardless of genes. Seems to me you'd be in favor of that.

Gay couples, on the other hand, are simply duplicate unions. Always only half of what a heterosexual couple equates to.
Smile.
What about you? You have a set of female and male genes.
Should you be allowed to marry? If so, why?

Says the most angry and off topic little ad hominem troll on this thread.

Is that your best argument? Priceless!

P.S. Why are you a hypocrite?
