Of course, since you are gay then you are ignorant to these things. You probably think that gay AIDS and suicides are not the result of gay choices, but something in your food.
AIDS is the result of a virus. Not "gay choices", most people with AIDS are straight.
And you homophobes have to try to connect homosexuality to pedophilia because you have no real arguments.
You just can't deal with your own same sex attractions.

BFD. What difference does it make to an opposite sex married couple if the law is change to include same sex couples? Come up with a real answer, no vague "harm civilization" statement. Tell us something specific the opposite sex couple would no longer be able to do, or forced to do...

Stupid, the 2nd section isn't about equal protection, it's about counting people for determining the numbers of reps a state has. It also mentions race.

Whatever. There is a gender test. Why are you against equal rights?

Many homosexuals want children and care enough that their children are raised by the kid's mom and dad.

I'm willing to let the court decide, but I'd prefer a Constituional Amendment like DOMA. Vice President Biden helped enact the Defense of Marriage Act into federal law, President Clinton signed DOMA. In 2008, both Obama and Biden ran on marriage as one man and one woman. They said it was about religion and faith, we have a Constitutional right to practice our religion and live by our beliefs.
.
<quoted text>In Germany, gay rights means not having to wear a pink triangle band on your arm and not being thrown in a concentration camp to die. Their are more important gay right issues than changing marriage law for everyone.
Then don't worry about it, stupid.

You really are funny aren't you? There are plenty of adults who identify as heterosexual that are pedophiles, ephebophiles, etc. Their targets can still be same sex too. Why must you continue to spout shite?

HIV, and therefore AIDs, when one considers the global statistics is more of concern in the heterosexual population. Suicides amongst the gay population are a direct result of attitudes like yours. You hate and condemn them on a daily basis. What is spectactular is the effort on the part of people just like you to shift the harboring of hatred to them when it is you that hates and denigrates.

BTW numbnuts, I'm straight. In fact I used to be just like you. Then I matured.

I think it is wonderful that you don't think there is anything wrong with homosexuals. What I take exception to is your belief that allowing homosexuals to marry someone of the same sex will change the law for everyone. It won't. I will still be married to my wife of 16 years. After one of us dies the other will see no change in the way our common property is handled. If one of us sees our health deteriorate the other will still be grante access to our death bed and given the legal right to make life decisions. Granting access to marriage for same sex couples does absolutely nothing to affect our relationship. This neither negates nor cheapens it.

My marriage isn't a religious phenomenon, it is a legal contract, an agreement between the two of us. Why should two people who are of the same sex not have access to the same?

You dumb down marriage to a 'legal contract' between two people. That is not marriage.

Gay couples have every right to acquire appropriate rights and privileges as gay unions, and have done so.

I pity your wife.

I pity all of them because no matter how many rights you give them they will still spread hiv carelessly and even more so now that they are allowed to raise children. Let alone the average lifespan of a homosexual will remain around 43 years of age and will 'go down' for years to come.

1. Every child with a biological parent in a gay union has been torn away from a parent.
2. Every child wants a mother AND father. When that is not possible, society should provide a substitute of both.
3. It is diabolical to deliberately birth a child without both parents. It is an outrageous violation on every child's right to normalcy.
4. That a child doesn't want and need both a mother and father is one of the stupidest gay twirls ever. Evolution has spent millions of years refining advanced species. You equate parenting to the genderless reproduction of simple life forms, apparently to match your brain.
5. Some option, a duplicate, or nothing. Ask the child if they would prefer a mom and dad if possible. I dare you.
One of the stupidest, most outrageous posts I've ever seen!

You know you're getting desperate when you drag out bogus statistics that have been SO discredited, even EXODUS International stopped using them.
