1. Of course it doesn't have to be. The law determined that faithfulness to a mate was unnecessary with no-fault divorce. Now we have horrendous consequences of domestic violence and child abuse. Not to mention a devastating drop in every area of the social health of children of divorce.
Now there is a silly and stupid attempt to dumb down marriage to a friendship of any gender, totally denying the part of children. Any sensible person would say the law will be two for two if that happens.
2. That would be like the law requiring sex or children or any ...quire' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!

A perfect example of a gay troll attack.
Look, not ONE reasoned response to a single point of reality.
Pure ad homoan attacks of my person.
Do you really think this helps your cause?
Snicker.
<quoted text>
No-fault divorce is an example of how past legislating the terms of marriage had devastating effects. It relates directly to this debate. You have no defense so you want to censor it.
Well look at that, you are trying an analogy!!!
Here is an example of exposing an analogy as absurd, something you still have not been able to do;
First, your analogy ignores the basic essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. That immediately disqualifies your analogy as incongruent.
Second, all farmers (marriage) produce something. Whether it is sheep or something else is irrelevant. Sometimes farmers get too old (they still are identified as farmers). Some have farms, but don't produce for the time being. Others are injured and can no longer produce. But someone who can never, under any conditions produce is NEVER called a farmer.
See how simple that is?
The simple truth is, you troll because you have no character or logic to defend your denial.
Smile.
<quoted text>
I can see why you want to change the subject. Character would admit you failed on the points being discussed. If people used you as an example of gay behavior, they would think that homosexuality has negative character side effects...
Please go back to your 'farmer' analogy;
A farmer who produces.
A farmer who doesn't produce because of age, disability or choice.
VV who never produces claiming to be a farmer.
VV who buys farm produce and claims to be a farmer.
And sillier still?
VV demands to be called a farmer too because the government doesn't demand that farmers farm.
Here are the the simple facts;
Our government and all other cultures have never bothered to distinguish between the small number of childless married people and those that do have children. Never been a problem. Still isn't.
That is a far cry from adding a duplicated half of marriage couple who are mutually desolate of procreation.
Additionally, your first sentence is a lie. Homosexuals clearly want to be equated with marriage and parenting in a futile effort to look normal.
Smile.
Fights against Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act are about "marriage", not "parenting".

Benghazi is not about Romney or bush. It's on Obama's watch. Yes Iraq was a mistake, but this is now. History doesn't divide people on what side you were on. It's not a game.

you guys just dont get it do you???

what was offensive is comparing a monogamous loving relationship with a managi troi.... sort of like when the bigoted haters compare beastiality with homosexuality........a ridiculous comparison for sure...

confusing a stable lesbian or gay monogamous relationship, with group sex is easy for you reich wingers... because your brains are so limited...

You say your progressive but instead of embracing civil unions, domestic partnerships and shacking up you turn on our second oldest cultural institution. Instead of embracing the future to create true freedom and equality you want to redefine marriage for everyone. Rather than building a better way helping your brothers and sisters you turn on your parents and grandparents commitment and honor.
Same sex marriage is bad for the shame.
You seem to be all rolled up in negative thought. You indicate that you think this is some form of attack on marriage. I see it as sharing access. Exclusion is a negative action. It isn't as if gays are wresting our marriages away from us. You have yet to show any harm that isn't contrived.

...I know that you are attempting to sound educated, and also trying to seem superior, but you are not doing dreadfully well with it...On with the latest dissection....

"still hung up on bengazi?? are you bummed it hasnt gone anywhere?"

What you are implying is that you do not care about Benghazi, or your fellow citizens, or government workers who are working overseas... But in a minute, you will be shown to be contradicting yourself.
"tragic situation, however....."
Sounds shallow to me...
"Ill bet you were jumping up and down in horror over shock and awe?
NO??"
You are trying to make a point here, but you haven't. I think that you are trying to paint some sort of odd picture, portraying him as an idiot, but that is your fictitious script, not his actions or sentiment, I think.
"more like jumping up and down in jubilation...."
Here, you are trying to throw some sort of spin on the whole post, intellectually dishonest, and not very sophisticated, I'm afraid, it didn't actually work...
"Im glad to be among those who were on the RIGHT side of that history...
we opposed that huge mistake from the start!!"
Now, here, you attempting to claim some sort of high ground, both for yourself, and for a group, unnamed, of course, did you mean to claim that all the gays in America were opposed to it?
"ps: we dont know the history that you were voting for, and luckily, we wont ever find out what Romney would have done.."
I'm sure that you know that we do not vote for history, but for candidates, right? Simple, and succinct, in displaying your lack of any real reasoning and thus your need to place him into a position that you can use, in order to attack him, but this is, again, your fictitious script, but nothing real or concrete.
"two wars, crashed economy, bad rethugs, no whitehouse!!"
This li'l rant is nothing short of a plea for a rational argument.

Now, if you have nothing better to do, except try to place your opponents into positions from which they can be exploited, you have little skill to brag about. Now, if that is the best that you can do, then you should not attempt any more of this, as it shows your lack of anything even resembling a thought. Any thoughts that you may be entertaining to the contrary are merely "sour grapes", as your opponent did not place himself into the position that you wished him to be in. you had to do that, in order to use your weak game.

I do, and that is that I am positive that you an idiot. He is not the bigot here, you are. You wish to suppress his 1st Amendment rights to express himself, as you do not like what he has to say. Nothing bigoted in his post at all. You are trying to use an old and weak ploy, namely, calling him a bigot for not sharing your point of view. Weak and sad, to say the least. Tired.
