"The conservative movement, to which I subscribe, has as one of its basic tenets the belief that government should stay out of people’s private lives. Government governs best when it governs least - and stays out of the impossible task of legislating morality. But legislating someone’s version of morality is exactly what we do by perpetuating discrimination against gays."
“There has always been homosexuality, ever since man and woman were invented. I guess there were gay apes. So that's not an issue. The Republican Party should stand for freedom and only freedom. Don't raise hell about the gays, the Blacks and the Mexicans. Free people have a right to do as they damn well please."
"The big thing is to make this country, along with every other country in the world with a few exceptions, quit discriminating against people just because they're gay. You don't have to agree with it, but they have a constitutional right to be gay." Conservative Icon, WW 2 hero, AZ Senator, and Republican Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater

Yet you choose to do both.

Again, your inner lesbian is mortified with your archaic behavior.

The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples;

A apple tree bearing fruit.
A apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
A walnut tree who never bears anything wanting to be a apple tree.
A walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.

Even funnier?

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!

fruits and nuts have nothing to do with marriage equality. You are barking up the wrong tree, fruitcake.

Which makes my point that gay couples have nothing to do with marriage.

Well golly G-Wiz buddy! I wasn't aware that procreation was a requirement of marriage? Who knew! I guess all those older married couples who can't have kids and couples who decide not to have children will NO longer be allowed to Wed anymore! Now see how stupid you sound? Bone head!
what is stupid is how you defend the bullying of Americans that don't want this. homosexuals are free to do whatever they want. Perhaps since marriage between homosexuals and heterosexuals is quite polarizing to the masses it could be called gay marriage or something like that. understand straight people also have rights. we want to be respected and accepted too. Its my belief gays are free to raise their own institutions just as straight people throughout history have done. what a beautiful thing that would be.

If many Americans don't want to marry a gay person, they certainly aren't going to required to. So, who is bullying whom?

Why would any sane person worry about the gender of the person that some stranger is marrying?

That just isn't logical.

Pointing out the lack of reason or logic isn't bullying.

We have "raised out own institution". It's called marriage. You know, the basic civil right?

See. Isn't that easy?

What a stupid comment. Who said that? Why is a dismissive, diversionary, deceitful statement like that necessary for a legitimate position?

Because marriage represents a sacred, unique relationship to them. Because it is designed to protect and encourage a natural family, not a fake duplicate union pretending to be one.

It most certainly is logical, and the only thing you pointed out is the lack of a logical answer. In fact, you can't even equate gay couples at the most basic essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Sorry.

Smile.

BS.

You are trying to impose an imposter relationship on the sole birthplace of your existence. By your dumbed down definition of marriage, any relationship qualifies.

The fact that you are not proud enough of your own to distinguish it only exposes the innate sense of a defect.

All this at the expense of your character and the health of mothers and children.

Man up boy!
