You have either two choices in this discussion, you came from NOTHING then BANG or you came from SOMETHING, period.

Fact is, there is not a HOMOSEXUAL race of humans or for that matter any other warm blooded creature that can survive without the aid of adoption, DNA manipulation. It is IMPOSSIBLE to reproduce being HOMOSEXUAL naturally..

Lastly, what is with the "gay" term, are you not proud of who you are as a HOMOSEXUAL? You have to change a word or ideal to promote what you claim is total freedom? What other mask do you wish to hide behind? Be proud you are HOMOSEXUAL, use the term with pride or be forever a hypocrite.

Break the argument as Wilkow says.. break it. NULL!!

No, dear, you missed my point...
If heterosexual marriages were scrutinized to the same degree that homosexual marriages have been, then many heterosexual marriages simply would not meet the "standard" that so many of the people in here say must be met in order to qualify for marriage.
Do you se what I'm saying?
You said heterosexuals have made a mockery of marriage and implied that homosexuals will not. I submit the mockery will continue now that gay marriage is legal.

I support SSM but I am under no delusions that you will do any better than heterosexuals have.

Major announcement from the Vatican...

'If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?' Francis asked.'We shouldn't marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society'."

WOW!
What's the big surprise? Life is trying desperately to easy the population pressures before all out war or another Nazi style extermination happens.

Cute joke I read today...

12 priests were about to be ordained. The final test was for them to line up in a straight row, totally nude in a garden while a sexy and beautiful, big-breasted, nude model danced before them.

Each priest had a small bell attached to his penis and they were told that anyone whose bell rang when she danced in front of them would not be ordained because he had not reached a state of spiritual purity.

The beautiful model danced before the first candidate, with no reaction.

She proceeded down the line with the same response from all the priests until she got to the final priest, Carlos.

As she danced, his bell began to ring so loudly that it flew off and fell clattering to the ground. Embarrassed, Carlos took a few steps forward, and bent over to pick it up.

Then, all the other bells started to ring, and all hell broke loose....

Oh, maybe the mockery will continue. You know, I say to Kim and Rock that we'll make better marriages simply to annoy them.

They take such great delight in telling us that our marriages don't count.

It annoys me that they do this, so I feel that turn-about is fair play.

Nevertheless, I will stand by my comment that heterosexual marriages could not stand the level of study and scrutiny that has been heaped on same-sex marriages for the past several years.

If people looked at heterosexual marriage the way they've judged and picked apart gay relationships, there's not a doubt in my mind that they couldn't pass muster.

Seriously... If they're going to look at every single aspect of same-sex marriage and demand that we aren't fit, then their marriages should be just as closely inspected.

So, if they're going to continue to insist that only certain people should be allowed to marry, then I'm going to suggest that probing investigations be done on couples who wish to marry. They should be evaluated for potential adultery problems, divorce likelihood, anger management issues (to stem any abuse problems), etc.

And only after they've passed these rigorous tests should they be issued a license to marry.

That way, people like Kimare Kardashian, could be certain that only the cream of the crop are allowed to marry.

Pope Francis has said gay people should not be marginalized but integrated into society, in some of the most conciliatory remarks by a pontiff on the issue of homosexuality and he's the Boss.

Can you imagine a group of couples who have had abortions, extramarital affairs, multiple divorces, dead-beat dads, etc. having to try to argue why it is that heterosexuals should have the right to marry?
The state could show statistics about how unstable heterosexual marriages have become over the past few decades. They could ask courts to either eliminate states supported heterosexual marriages or they could argue for severe restrictions on heterosexual marriages; making potential couples go through a series of medical and psychiatric tests, just to make sure that couples are truly worthy of marriage.
That's what gays have had to do. We have been scrutinized and had our personal lives investigated at every step of the way in the fight to obtain the right to marry.
And while many straight couples would qualify for marriage after being thoroughly tested; many would not qualify. They would be banned from marriage.
I'm just trying to point out the ridiculousness of the arguments that Kim keeps making, especially the argument that only couples who have the ability or potential to procreate should be allowed to marry.
If he and others are going to so narrowly define marriage for gays, then they need to narrowly define it for themselves. They need to put structures in place that would reduce domestic violence, abortion, child abuse/neglect, parental abandonment, divorce, adultery, etc. BEFORE a heterosexual couple could marry.
What's good for the chimera goose is good for the devastatingly gorgeous gander.
There is no such thing as a ss marriage.

Your denial is only proved by your last statement. I'm not trying to be offensive, but a Bruce Willis look-a-like is disparaged by a down right scary ugly gander. Really???

WOW!
Being homosexual and immorality are two distinct things. I'm sure the Pope distinguishes between them. I also doubt he would okay calling ss couples married.

How can something that does not exist annoy me?
