I know (not think) that it will allow 2 consenting adults to be married in the eyes of the law without regard to gender. If you want to continue discussing polygamy, feel free to do so.

that said, your statements are illogical Frankie. Out of one side of your mouth you indicate that the 2 parties to the marriage are the same gender. Out of the other side of your mouth, you call what you refer to as "one half" of the marriage female. Obviously that was just an attempt to pick a fight.

Carry on, Sybil.

The evolution continues:

The poll by Princeton Survey Research Associates questioned 1,003 adults from Thursday through Sunday. It has a margin of error of +/-3.6 percentage points.

Among the findings:

• By an unprecedented 55%-40%, Americans say marriages between same-sex couples should be recognized by law as valid, with the same rights of traditional marriage. That's the highest level of support since Gallup began asking the question in 1996. Then, fewer than half that number, 27%, backed the idea.

Last year was the first time a majority of Americans had backed gay marriage.

The only major demographic groups in which a majority oppose same-sex marriage are Republicans (68%) and seniors 65 and older (51%). Even in the South, which continues to be the only region that doesn't show majority support for gay marriage, opposition has slipped below 50%.

Please KiMare, do detail for us all the specific bad things that are going to occur as a result of gays marrying!!!! Give us the top 10!!!!!
Stupid bitch!! Smile!!
In states where same-sex marriage is legal, public schools are required to teach impressionable children that homosexuality is a normal and an equally valid alternative to heterosexuality. This new and untested philosophy, which goes against humans’ procreative instincts and natural order, will have profound social, economic, health, and evolutionary consequences the like of which the world has never seen. Social scientists prognosticate the following implications and trends:

Homosexuality as the new norm: Through the process of socialization, and suppression of dissent, the next generation will come to believe that homosexuality is as an acceptable orientation and lifestyle. With the approval and encouragement of parents, teachers, social scientists, political leaders, and prominent cultural figures in the media, a growing proportion (10-50%) of the young population will adopt a homosexual lifestyle in pace with rising acceptance levels. This positive trend will result in an explosion of infertile couples in the United States.

Economic downturn: A substantial increase in infertile couples will cause the natural population growth in the United Stated states to collapse. That will adversely affect important factors that depend on steady population growth such as national consumption, GDP, Social Security and Medicare. With a diminished labor force (i.e. future population) to demand goods and services, aggregate supply will fall, gross domestic output will decline or grow very slowly, and the prolonged economic contraction will push the unemployment rate to stubbornly high recessionary levels until there is a counteracting economic force. A similar economic story has already unfolded in developed countries with declining populations such as Italy, Russia and Spain.

Public health: The greater preponderance of homosexual couples will lead to a rapid epidemic of HIV infection and AIDS, which is presently at higher prevalence among homosexual men. This nationwide health crisis (affecting 10-50% of the population) will place further strain on family and government budgets, crowd out funding for essential public services, and reduce future standard of living for millions of citizens.

Massive social disorientation: Demand for surrogate mothers and adoption services will skyrocket from a rising proportion of infertile couples. A massive number of people will grow up without any knowledge or emotional connection with their biological parents or ancestry, leading to intense feelings of estrangement, abandonment, rejection and lack of identity. Furthermore, the high demand for babies will create perverse incentives for criminals throughout the globe to illegally traffic, trade, and commoditize children for profit.

The LGBT movement would like you to believe that same-sex marriage is only an issue concerning two people who love each other, but that is far from the truth. Redefining and diminishing a centuries-old social structure, such as traditional marriage, is a grand social experiment that will likely have significant negative social, economic, and health outcomes.

Most of that was either just plain ignorance or theoretical hyperbole that does not translate into reality.

Hey, by the way, look up "acne heroes". I'm deadly serious. This world is so stupid, and you junior high drones are such imbeciles, that somebody would appeal to your idiocy by attaching the word "hero" to zit medicine.

I have addressed the issue. You asked which post demonstrates your anger, I answered EVERY post of yours demonstrates your anger. What didn't you understand about that?
I have no argument with same sex marriage dummy. I fully support marriage equality. Perhaps that is why I don't argue with your argument supporting it? Duh.

Bottom line. I support marriage equality and you do not.

If no one cared no one would respond. Duh.

I don't want to enter a poly relationship, I simply want to discuss marriage equality without your fear, ridicule and attempts at censorship.
