Some gay-rights foes claim they now are bullied

Jun 11, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Contra Costa Times

In this Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009 file picture, New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz, D-Bronx, right, speaks during a debate over same-sex marriage in the New York state Senate at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y. Diaz complained in May 2011 that he's received death threats because he opposes legislation to legalize same-sex marriage.

Your definition of marriage is childish and as narrow as your mind. You don't see marriage as a committment between two people who are romantically and emotionally attracted to one another; you define marriage based upon little more than having "genital compatability", as though the only requirement for a "proper" marriage is interoperable parts.
Unsophisticated people like yourself cannot expand their minds beyond the "mommy and daddy and baby makes three" mentality of 1950's America. I understand that, and if that's where your head is at, fine; just don't prevent other people from enjoying the benefits of marriage.
Stop acting like you're normal and "those people" are freaks. I mean, lets ace it, some guys get off owning and carrying guns as an extension of their manhood, but I don't call them freaks for it.
My definition is narrow? This from someone who wants to dumb down marriage to a contract between two people? Really.

If you
believe denying marriage to a relationship
will prevent love

If you
demand any committed relationship
has to be called marriage

If you
claim rights and benefits can only be acquired
by a imposition on marriage

If you
equate the diversity of two genders
with the redundancy of same genders

If you
desecrate the sacred tradition of all major religions
and violate the historic practice of every single culture in history

If you
believe a fundamental change to the building block of society
will have absolutely no affect

If you
think a law can change
the reality of crucial distinctions in relationships

If you
pretend duplicating sexuality
is the same as blending masculinity and femininity

If you
condemn some children to parents of only one gender
and deliberately deny some children one natural parent

If you
ignore the design of sexual union
to manipulate a harmful act

If you
violate evolution's law of reproduction
to equate a genetic dead end

If you
risk the healthiest human relationship
to include one of the unhealthiest

If you
parallel the sole birthplace of every other relationship
with one that can reproduce none

If you
dilute all these things
down to just 'a committed relationship of two people'

Then, and only then, can you equate same-sex unions with marriage.

Here's my favorite:

"If you desecrate the sacred tradition of all major religions and violate the historic practice of every single culture in history"

You know, it was once a sacred tradition in the Catholic Church to torture heretics, and it was the "historic practice" in the Southern US to sell black people into slavery.

Stop thinking like a child. Stop thinking what "holy" people tell you to think and start thinking for yourself.

Here's another good one:

"..risk the healthiest human relationship
to include one of the unhealthiest..."

So, all hetersexual relationships are "healthy", and all homosexual relationships are "unhealthy", is that it?

You're precious.

>No one desires to "harm" anyone. No one is being "denied equality".
We seek to preserve what we have enjoyed for the future generations to come.
Family is Dad, Mom, Children. There is no such thing as a "same sex family".<

Completely WRONG on every single point. You must be a terror in classes.

GLBTs are denied EQUALITY everyday. In 33 states, you can unfortunately be evicted, expelled, fired, denied credit or bank accounts, simply for being GLBT.

My WIFE and I have been happily married for 4 1/2 years. We are a same-sex FAMILY, and nothing that YOU spew can change that.

You really need to get the true FACTS sbout GLBT's. Start with www.pflag.org . They're very helpful.

I'm tired of hearing "we don't want to deny anyone's rights, you can have all of the benefits of marriage,...but without the marriage part".

Okay, you can all of the benefits of gun ownership....but without the bullets.

Most "straight men" who act unusually hostile toward gay men do so to mask the self loathing caused by their own latent homosexual desires.

Trust me, I've f***cked some of the straightest dudes you've ever seen!

I remain unsure whether those who trot out the horse argument are just incredibly stupid or simply intending to be insulting and dehumanizing by comparing the relationship between two people to that of a person and an animal. smh
Somewhere on here a posting stated that marriage was based on a union of love. You will argue that a man or woman cannot love their donkey? There most certainly can be a union. Not an easy one, but I would imagine same sex aint easy.

As for when an animal can say, "yes", the animal doesn't have to say yes, the love is obvious. And no, we are not comparing gays to animals.

Bottom line is that no matter how much you cry and complain about unfair treatment and inequality, gays will never get there. It's simply not equal and not the same.

Exposed your initial assertion as pure idiocy, so now you revert to ad homoan attacks.

Now THAT is childish. How old are you?

Look up the definition of 'tradition' idiot.

You noted brief practices of the Catholic Church.

You incorrectly noted a brief period of history. Blacks in Africa sold their brothers to people in many nations who bought them.

None of those false points addresses your favorite point of mine;

Every single culture in history has had marriage. Every major religion has had marriage. There is no tradition in existence as historic as marriage.

You were saying...

Bazinga!

Where did I say what you 'understood'(I use the term loosely...)

Comprehension problem?

Marriage is the healthiest relationship. Homosexuality falls at the bottom of the list. Simple fact.

A majority of states does not equal a majority of the population.. The founders knew majorities would deny to minorities the rights they reserve for themselves if given the opportunity. Equal rights should never depend on popular opinion.
(SCOTUS)
Well I have to disagree. A majority of states do represent a majority of the population since it was put to a vote in each state. The majority came out and said NO on every occassion. When you speak of eqaul rights, if you are male you have the right to marry a female and if you are female you have the right to marry a male, no ones rights have been squashed as they are equal for all. If that were not so, could a female walk into court and demand to be married becuase it is her right? What if no male will have her? Can she sue because she has the "right" to be married? Does the judge have pool of men in the back to choose from? The LA Times reported yesterday No word from Supreme Court on gay marriage cases
Justices discuss pending appeals on the Defense of Marriage Act as well as California's Proposition 8, but don't announce which they will rule on this term.
The reason being if they hear one, they have to hear them all, and they won't as they would rather leave it up to the states
