Did you just switch sides? Are you now all of a sudden supportive of Same Sex marriage?
Or are you trying to nibble at specific laws that have nothing whatsoever to do with Prop 8 that you know would scare your constituency even more. Your problem isnít your constituency, the people you need to try and convince is everyone else.
The more outlandish you get, the more you look like a screaming fanatic... that works in some circles... but not where you need it.
From here... you look like you are getting desperate, and I suppose you should be.
If anyone acts like a screaming fanatic here, it's you.

I am not trying to scare anyone. I am not scared of poly and incest. Why are you?
Please get off your "Frankie's a liar" schtick. I am not trying to trick you. You are frustrated because you realize you are against marriage equality, Get angry with yourself, not me.
I am not afraid of it, never was.

I would vote for it with a clear conscience if and when it comes up.

I am not frustrated, but you sure must be, your points are just falling apart right and left

I am afraid mother nature is opposed to your position, homosexuality is common among many mammals.
Or are you arguing that any marriage is against mother nature, that is a better argument I suppose there are some monogamous mammals, but not nearly as many.
Had a gay dog once. Silly little f***er. Lived till he was 15. I miss that little flaming jackass. Cried a few tears when he died. He was so gay you expected flames to shoot out his ass at any minute! Broke the ice with women in the park how he used to carry on sniffing boy dog butt only.

No they are not. Yours are. You cannot lie your way out. We see right through you. You are "as transparent as glass".

You know me, I donít care about historically, historically Christians were murdered for sport and entertainment, historically protestants were burned at the stake for their beliefs, historically women were not allowed a vote and so on and so forth.
Just because something used to be true, doesnít make it a good thing.
There are those that argued that slavery was a building block of society, numerous times through history in many civilizations.
Any excuse to bring up Christian holocausts.

What happened Big D? Why are you so filled with hate?

How about there's no rational reason to have it. None, niente....zip...how did western civilization survive into the 21st century, on this quaint notion that marriage is a union of husband and wife? Radical...before ya know it someone will suggesy that human reproduction is sexual. What a concept....sex between men and women makes babies. Who knows maybe one of those babies will grow up and call himself "Woodtick57"........ .hmmmmmm.....sounds like a steak sauce for insects.....
Do you think that if same-gender marriage becomes the law of the land here in the U.S., all of a sudden heterosexual couples will stop or slow down having babies?

Expanding marriage will not impact heterosexual marriages, nor will it impact the birthrate.

You guys keep throwing "children" at this issue and it simply has no place in the discussion.

A law can't change the reality that there is no such thing as calling ss couples married.

A phony lying chump sucker lives in Glendora, California. I'm surprised he wasn't protected by City Hall along with the GPD and City Council members?

After his sentencing, Raymond Bitar was ordered to relinquish his assets as part of a plea deal.

On the contrary, when my man and I get married, we will be married. We will be husband and husband. And we will be married before I draw my last breath and you making unfounded statements will never change that.

In this country, the "law" is the entity that determines if someone is married or not. The law defines marriage--not you.

The LGBT Community couldn't give a damn how you, personally, want to define marriage. If you wish to live in the land of make-believe, that's perfectly fine with us. Be our guests!

Your continued mental deterioration, while sad, is of no consequence to the rest of the world. We will continue to live our lives; and many of us will marry, in spite of your fantasies.

No, not at all. But why call an apple an orange?
Expanding marriage
How do you expand marriage by arguing for the elimination of one half of the marital relationship, the husband or wife?
will not impact heterosexual marriages,
"heterosexual marriages"? Let's not forget those of mixed orientation.
nor will it impact the birthrate.
Perhaps not.

Children have no place in the discussion of the definition of marriage? Does sex between two men/women result in conception?
