Paul Mannina, the U.S. Department of Labor attorney charged in a home invasion, was found dead in a D.C. jail cell of an apparent suicide Tuesday, reported NBC4's Mark Segraves.

Mannina, 58, was arrested last week in connection with a violent home invasion at the residence of one of his coworkers.

I gave hell to somebody about doing something a certain way, then give them credit for making it right, and get the negative smilies from the usual bedwetter.

There's no pleasing the homosexuals. They're irresponsible and mentally unstable. Only the Common Man wants them in their neighborhood.

I rarely address the religious basis for marriage.
I kind of enjoy the hissy fit when I point out the social science basis;
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.
No violation of freedom, no religion. Just a clear distinction between the two relationships.
Now, watch the pink brigade show up.

So you deduced I got my evolutionary proof from the Bible?
AND, there is money there? Damn, I'll split it with you if you help me find it!
What other conspiracy theories do you follow???
Oh you can find nut jobs that think anything from an evolutionary standpoint, Hitler for example, but the money is coming from the religious.

People that actually know something about evolution know better than what you have been saying., You are stretching to find a reason to not support it.

No animals other than man marry, there are some that are monogamous ( generally not man )but they donít have a legal marriage ceremony, so that kind of tosses all your arguments out the window from a marriage perspective.

As far as homosexuality is concerned there are dozens of documented species that include homosexuality, so that tosses out the whole natural argument.

A ceremony is a ritual, and animals are VERY ritualistic, very ceremonious in their own fashion (their dances and their waggles and their songs) and since homosexuals are mostly regressive animals...

So what was your point again?

I get the feeling that you're stuttering and stammering as you write. You don't really believe what you're saying, do you?

You're putting the cart before the horse. The whole issues has been systematically attacked, starting with the removal of children as the primary impetus of marriage. Having removed this inconvenient validation for coupling, you are having a happy time stating that my assertion is "down the tubes".
Can infertile heterosexual couples marry? If so, then your assertion is down the tubes.
Rock Hudson wrote:
Stating that "that the state does not have an interest in a child being raised by two biological parents" is another step towards the new and draconian measure of taking our children away, and letting the state take control of them.
No it is not. The state doesnít take children born out of wedlock, and it allows divorce in cases where children are in the picture. Only a moron would imply that there is a state interest in children being raised by two biological parents. How does it feel to be utterly out of touch with reality?
Rock Hudson wrote:
The Nazi ideal realized.
Actually, you are the one advocating that the state not provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws counter to the US Constitution. Itís ironic that you then accuse someone else of fascism. One wonders if you actually have any understanding of what you have implied?
Rock Hudson wrote:
Again, you assert that the rights sought by the polygamists are greater than others are asking for, but this is a lie.
No, if one can count, they can see that the protections sought is greater.
Rock Hudson wrote:
The actual number of rights are identical, the number of claimants is greater.
Do you see how you just employed the word greater? Yeah, that is how you just disproved your own argument. Congratulations, you arenít to terribly bright.
Rock Hudson wrote:
This is because 3 is greater than 2. Simple mathematics.
This is why you have disproven your own argument. I think your ignorance is hysterical.
Rock Hudson wrote:

The difference is outlawing bigamy can be justified because it seeks greater protection, which you yourself have admitted in your inept attempt to justify polygamy, while outlawing same sex marriage serves no compelling state interest.

WTF are you talking about?

Earth to moron, there is a compelling state interest served by denying siblings the right to marry.

Those are mating dances, happens homosexually in animals too, thank you for making my point :)

Not at all, I actually know what I am talking about

A nut job is the person thinking religion is supporting evolution.

However, please be specific about how the essence of marriage is different from what I quoted from social science.

Marriage is a cultural constraint, animals do not equate regarding marriage.

Animals engage in same sex sexual behavior, very few actually practice homosexuality. However, if that justifies homosexuality, then dogs lick butts and eat shit. Just where do you want to go with this?

I never said it was, I said it was supporting the fight against same sex marriage.

There is no place I have to go with anything, it is obvious that your conclusions about evolution are simply wrong.

The institution of marriage is a government contract, a legal contract, nothing more. What each person makes of their own marriage is a personal affair. No one needs your approval any more than you need my approval.

Marriage is not found in the history of the evolution of species at all, it is a human legal construct.

Ya got to love those Italians in Italy if they can't convict you in the first two (2) trials why not try to in a third (3).

Italian court: Amanda Knox must be retried

After Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaelle Sollecito were convicted and then acquitted of murdering Meredith Kercher, the Italian court system will now re-try the case, saying more evidence should have been considered.

<quoted text>So Frank do you think it was right of the voters in Cali. to out law same sex marriage, after the right had been granted to gays and lesbians? Personaly I think the Judge was correct in overturning the ban based on the US Constitution. I am sure that SCOTUS will back up the Judge and reinstate same sex marriage in California. What about you?
lol .. the gay cult has been saying this for years now, and it still hasn't happened. Californiea is the only state so far to stand strong even though it is host to the Gay Cult capitol of the nation, San Fransico. There must be a very good reason for this stand off!!! not even Rose Ho can figure this one out ... lol

You are a tad behind in the news.

The state of California has overturned Prop 8, and the defenders lost their appeal in the appellate court in California.

A stay has been put on the overturn until the ruling is appealed in the supreme court.

A vote today in California would overturn Prop 8 in a walk
