Same-sex marriages that are built on love, mutual respect, monogamy, and life-long commitment are equal to any opposite-sex marriage.
As you have said many times before, the potential for children in a relationship IS NOT a basis for marriage.
Why you continue your "What about the children?" campaign continues to baffle me.
Your TIRED "mutually sterile duplicate", "cross-cultural constraint", and "failure of mating behavior" material has gotten really old. Nobody believes it. Why should we deny same-sex couples access to legal marriage based on your opinions?
Now, I've answered your question. You answer mine...
Rose's Law? People who care about children are morons.

May 22, 2013 - a news helicopter has been hovering for about an hour over the big dig area. The house in question is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, three owners have occupied this house since Robert Byron sold it and moved to Covina, Ca. we have tracked down the first owner to buy this house and are investigating.

Glendora, California 1978 a 24 year old lady went missing, now the LA County Sheriffs Department is on the job and digging up a back yard in the city of Glendora, California.

The person who reported her missing was her husband, the house has been sold three times since then.

Glad to see some real police department work is being carried out by them on Essex Street in the 500 block.

The neighborhood kids like the husband, but no wife? Wonder what happened to her remains?

More insider information to follow.

Scientists can assert that homosexuality is normal by doing a very simple test. Namely, they can look around at NATURE (thus the name "natural) and see that homosexuality and SSSB exists pretty much everywhere.
Does it really take a bought and paid for "scientist" to see what a child can see?

The perverts don't realize just how dangerously stupid they truly are.

That one accepts "hate crimes" in its vocabulary as if it were normal, same as the magic word "homophobic".

I ask that all the time. Why does it take a family member involved for a republican to see the right thing is to support same sex marriage, have they no empathy at all for their constituents? Canít they see the right thing to do without it having to be directly affected by a personal family member?

A child can see it, why canít they?

Hate crime is just a simple way to determine premeditation and forethought

the penalties are no different than premeditation, and a person that spews hatred for a class of people makes that determination easy.

There's really no need to have anyone laugh at you to be the ignorant moron that you are. You would be an ignorant moron even without the laughs.

It's the reason marriage, as a distinct privileged relationship, exists in the first place. Otherwise why would it matter who married who, or didn't marry who?
Why should we deny same-sex couples access to legal marriage based on your opinions?
Now, I've answered your question. You answer mine...
Individuals can access legal marriage as part of a pairing recognized by law, not couples. Why should marriage be fundamentally redefined?

But not the value of Americans expressing their will through the voting process, as in votes for prop 22, and prop 8. Apparently that value is not part of Big D's patriotism.

It isnít being fundamentally re-defined, we are just making it more inclusive.

The thousands upon thousands of same sex couples legally married in the US today certainly did not re-define my marriage in any way at all.

If you make it too inclusive it will include everyone and then everyone will be married and marriage will mean absolutely nothing.
