"Bugged" is the wrong word. "Amused" is better.
You might be amused to hear that same sex marriage is legally recognized on the state and federal level in a growing number of states, just like the people that mention marriages to first cousins are legally married in some states while somehow being opposed to same sex marriage.

I like it when they make our point for us.

It's only baseball.

Abreu is the fourth Cuban player to defect in the past two months, adding to the departures of first baseman Yozzen Cuesta, and pitchers Misael Siveiro and Odrisamer Despaigne.

Cuban defectors Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig have recently signed multimillion dollar contracts to play in MLB.

I love baseball what about you?

As you know, I fully support marriage equality. But "amused" is the wrong word when it comes to equal protection. Get a vocabulary.
We are amused that you say that, we all know better

More HALLUCINATIONS and REVELATIONS

What could cause an individual ( Rankin ) to behave and act out in an irritational and paranoid manner although he claims to know what he talking about but have no proof to support his libelous and slanderous lies? Answer RANKIN thugs and please do not answer in your usual paranoid style. Give us insight on your lack of intellect.

Same rhetoric from the RANKIN THUGS that you all are to be expected.
Drugs have long lasting side effects.

I think what you'll find in the next decade or so will be a diagnosis for bigots and homophobes. I mean think about it... A person who tries to make other people's sexual attraction their business. That has pathology written all over it.
I'm not sure what they'll call it--maybe something like "naziosis". Or perhaps they'll name if after you.
Fingers crossed!
The THEORY of epigenetics will likely not come to pass. One of the links you provided to the epigenetics THEORY indicated that determining it to be a fact will be near impossible. And even if they do determine that epigenetics play a role in orientation, there is no indication that there SHOULD be a "cure" or WILL be a "cure" as a result.
I think your epigenetics THEORY will turn around and bite people like you on the ass. Homosexuality will be seen as normal--a naturally occurring event that epigenetics explains.
You know nothing about homosexuality, with the exception of men's asses. And you certainly have shown yourself to know nothing about gender identity.
I doubt that will happen, unless they vote Big D into office.

Gay marriage and same sex marriage are the same thing. I'm not interested in playing word games.

Non issue. We are guaranteed equal protection under the law, that equal protection doesn't have to serve a state interest.
Please take notes, the rational argument for gay marriage is that men and women should have equal protection under the law.
Men and women DO have equal protection under the law. They are both entitled to the protections provided for marriages involving 1 of each gender, so you haven't produced any rational argument to change the definition of marriage. Your argument is a non-issue.

That is correct. No-one has. They are merely exploiting loopholes, in order to gain $$.

How naive you are. Ask your sisters about straight men wanting anal sex.
Anyway, it's a non issue.
The particular sex acts we engage in are not the government's business.
No. They're not. So, the government has no business legislating it into validity.

The fact all you can do is lie about me and my position, and try to insult me, once again shows:
You can't come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.
First, I can't think of how not liking me and being a homophobe would be related. I would never base an argument about gay marriage on who does or doesn't want to marry me.
Now, try again, try to finish this sentence and make a rational argument against gay marriage.
"A person should not be allowed to marry a member of the same sex because..."
I've already played your "fill in the blanks" game. You chose to ignore the reality that I presented. As usual.

Drives you crazy that I support SSM doesn't it? Truly amusing!
Unless you truly think I am lying. If you do please ask yourself "Why would he do that?" Believe me, I am not amused to be on the same side as you on this.
I know that you don't
