Yep. That's why I said you brought religion to the debate, I didn't say you brought religion to the debate about gay marriage. Duh.
Or perhaps you can show where I said you brought religion to the debate about gay marriage?
Didn't think so.

Are you claiming you didn't make that post?
LOL. You are such a joke.
You're an idiot. You do realize that was the Declaration Of Independence don't you, and it was in a discussion regarding the Constitution.

So now idiots like you are going to claim that the Declaration of Independence is a "religious argument"..

Do you realize how ignorant you sound?

Claiming our rights come from a creator is a religious argument.

You really can't be this stupid Rose. You do realize there were two different conversations going on don't you?
BTW, I brought the Declaration of Independence into a debate about the Constitution, not religion.
So either way you are still an idiot.

Like a cancer, Athens Services are moving through the local governments of California and looking for the weak to pray upon and take thier cities away from their city councils and residents.

The cities that have been left weak because of poor planning and investment planning by city managers and finance directors who are desprate to cover up the losses.

The weak ones are the ones Athens Services like to help? "said the spider to the fly."

So you don't agree with the founders? I'm sorry that you are so simpleminded Rose.

BTW, there are a lot of definitions are "creator", it is not just a religious argument. Like I said, you are simple minded. And it is complete nonsense that one cannot cite the founders and the documents they drafted which provided the foundation of our nation without you squealing out some nonsense like you have above.

The only thing that you have proven is that you are an uneducated idiot.

'An activist judge is one who operates with a bias, or a hidden agenda. And we all know there is a gay agenda, like forcing the majority of us to accept gay marriage.

Because society, as a whole, has deemed it to be unacceptable to commit certain acts, moron. And if we do not have the right to set standards for ourselves, then why do we have prisons at all ? Answer that, idiot. Or did I go too fast ?'
Or have you got some spin to put on this, too ?

Insults, yes, but you didn't prove her wrong. And yes, you can cite the founders, but you cannot pretend to know that they would do in modern society, either. Prove that civil rights in this country, and all the laws that deal with them, are based on religious arguments.

The founders set up a system of checks and balances designed to have the best chance of protecting the basic rights of citizens - even those born 200 years in the future, into situations the founders could never have imagined.

And that's what is still happening today in the courts.

Okay. Since you asked....

The agenda of this judge was adherence to a little thing called "The Constitution of the United States of America." That's his job.
R Hudson wrote:

And there is, conversely, a bigoted homophobic agenda, like forcing gays to do without benefits which accrue to straights as a result of legally committing to a relationship. We all know that too.
What's your point?
R Hudson wrote:

The op did NOT say it was 'right'- she asserted that it is 'natural', since it occurs in NATURE. Of course murder and rape are 'natural'- if they weren't, we wouldn't need laws prohibiting them, since they would never occur.

By the way, I searched high and low for a question here - couldn't find one. But I will say that no one is being forced to 'accept' gay marriage - if you don't want a gay marriage, don't have one. It's that simple, really.
R Hudson wrote:

Humans criminalize acts which perpetrate harm on others. Please name one way, just one, in which the fact of two gays legalizing their relationship, personally affects you in a negative manner, much less ends your life, or violates your body.

I'll wait.
