KiMare wrote: Perfect example of your responses. When denying the truth doesn't work, then the truth doesn't matter. Like the SCOTUS ruling, your opinion is having the same effect on reality. You have a partnership, you do not have a marriage. Even you admitted two key differences out of many. Oh, parents produce children. Ss couples mutually don't. Ever. And if children have a choice between the two, they choose parents. Smile.

<quoted text>When did having children become a requirement in marriage? Hell two idiots can reproduce, you're living proof of that.
Where did I say they were a requirement? Why would they need to be required when they are a natural result of mating behavior and the marriage union?

Clearly the idiot is you.

<quoted text>So you don't really care if polygamy is illegal or not. Thanks for clearing that up.
No. That is incorrect.

I think polygamy should be allowed. And you don't. I am in favor of marriage equality and you are not. That is how it is. Why do you attempt to spin it otherwise?

<quoted text>Then you and all who wish to join in a poly marriage, need to file suit, hire a lawyer and get the laws changed. THE LGBT people did so. Are you that much better than them????
I don't want to enter a poly marriage and I don't want to do that other stuff you ridiculously order me to do.

I simply want to discuss marriage equality without your fear, ridicule and attempts at censorship.

Zoro wrote:
<quoted text>So if a man and woman are both sterile, its only half a marriage.
Hardly.

This isn't rocket science, are you really that stupid?

Sterility in opposite sex couples indicates a injury or birth defect.

Mutually sterility in ss couples is a design conflict. Simply impossible.

However, the bottom line is still this;

Reality is disobeying SCOTUS!!! What is Obama going to do now??? Someone needs to file suit.

VV, where are you?

Of course, Frank wouldn't prevail, because they seem to suffer from the delusion that a union of three or more people seeks equal, not greater, protection of the law.
Frank is seriously at odds with reality.
By your idiotic logic equal rights for Asians seeks greater protection than equal rights for Inuits, because Asians out number Inuits.

<quoted text>One must ask, what is marriage?
The legal, cultural, social, historical, sexual, and/or religious union of husband and wife.
A lawful contract between two consenting adults.
If that's all it is, there's no reason to deny ANY two consenting adults.
So how does the names of the two affect the contract, Bill and Sam, Sue and Jill? Husband and Husband wife and wife.
Or the prior relationship or blood ties between the two, to carry your reasoning further.

Huh? It doesn't bother me in the leaset. I have never said anything disparaging about poly. There is a difference between discussing and posting the same thing over and over in an attempt to stir up drama. Discuss. Do you have points to make? Please make them. I am listening.

So you're comparing the institution of marriage, the union of husband and wife, to those things?
No, I'm comparing marriage inequality to those things. And I'll go further and add heterosexism to that list.

The institution of open and legal slavery has all but disappeared from the planet. Compare that to how prevalent slavery has been throughout time and in different cultures. The earliest indication of slavery was in 1760 BC.

"David P. Forsythe wrote:'The fact remained that at the beginning of the nineteenth century an estimated three-quarters of all people alive were trapped in bondage against their will either in some form of slavery or serfdom'".

However, in 1981 the country Mauritania abolished legal slavery--the last country on the planet to do so.

An institution that existed legally for nearly 4,000 years; maybe longer, came to an end.

Societies simply stopped tolerating it.

Societies around the globe have stopped tolerating marriage inequality as well. They're stopping heterosexist ideology as well.

Openly LGBT individuals are seeking and getting equal rights. The days of discrimination and prejudice are fading away.

In a few generations folks will look back at these times and say, "Why did our ancestors make such a big deal about being gay? It's just another characteristic like being blond or being tall or being Caucasian or being left-handed, etc."

You haven't been listening so far, what's changed?

All I've seen is a moronic troll trashing Ronald and his innocent dog's name and reputation.

Sterility is to marriage as a tennis racket is to a bicycle. Both are loosely related, but not dependent on the other.

A union between heterosexual couples--married or unmarried--MAY result in offspring. There isn't a guarantee that when an opposite-gender couple gets together they will create children. They may decide for whatever reason that they don't want children.

This isn't a design conflict. It's a matter making a conscious decision.

These couples married one another for reasons OTHER than procreation.

Most same-gender couples want to marry for reasons OTHER than procreation. Keep in mind, this doesn't mean that a same-gender couple is incapable of adopting children, if that's something they wish to do.

You keep throwing an opposite-gender couple's ability to procreate into the argument.

But that's disingenuous. And you know it. You only keep using it because it's basically the only thing you've got.

You don't want to throw religion into this argument because you know you'll lose both the argument and the support of some of the others in this forum.

Same-gender couples fall in love, just like opposite-gender couples. They wish to tie their lives together, legally, emotionally, physically, etc.

And that's the crux of the Supreme Court's decision. There is no difference in the eyes of the law. You cannot treat one couple different than another couple simply because the gender composition isn't the same.

Stop using children to defend your obvious hatred and fear of homosexuality.

For whatever reason, you want homosexuality to disappear from the planet. And that's not going to happen.

It's time you stopped trying to live in a make-believe world where gays shouldn't exist. To continue to live in such a world is indicative of delusional thought processes.

Go get some help to deal with your obvious hatred and/or fear of homosexuality. You'll be a happier person and I know those of us who come to this room will be happier as well.

Did you miss the post where I indicated that I was behaving like you, to demonstrate how idiotic some of your squawking was coming across? If you think I was behaving like a troll, look in the mirror. I was making a point. I'm sorry you were unable to see that.

By the way Frankie, I didn't see any additional points made about poly. I anxiously await any new discussion points you may have.

Brushing aside the gay twirl pontification,

I'm not stopping anyone from loving another person, or establishing a contract or rights.

I'm simply and accurately saying the ss couples do not equate to marriage. Either in make-up or result.

Clearly, the ruling by SCOTUS has been unable to adjudicate those differences.

Even the gay hordes in adamant denial have been unable to rectify those distinctions.

Who do I believe, you, or my eyes???

In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by trying to start arguments and upset people. They may do this by posting deliberately inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Interesting, the SCOTUS just told the citizens that they have no right to seek a redress of grievances against their political overlords.

Good work guys..
