And most people have moved on, thank goodness! Only a few are insecure enough to fear their neighbors enough to want to harm their families.

Says the catholic who supports child molesting priests...... Or is that one of your sacraments too?

No one "qualifies to make demands of others". It's going to be interesting to see how much whining goes on at tax time when they see the marriage penalty. LOL

You mean the child molesting priests, 90% of which were homosexual cases of abuse? If they got rid of all the gays out of the priesthood, they would reduce the abuse problem by 90%.

The gays are quite uncomfortable about this fact, so they try to change the subject to their overall hatred of the Catholic Church.

Evidently I stand out to you on Topix. You follow me from thread to thread. I don't morph from username to username, so I guess stalking a registered poster is rather simplistic. Figures. Now, go plan a big story about your Hawaiian vacation, which has morphed to Jamaica. Quite the cyber traveler you fancy your Blonde Douche to be.

You are incorrect. Marriage is a legal contract that often is formalized in a religious setting.

Priests are nothing more than sexual predators who chose innocent children as their victims, they are therefore called Pedophiles. The only reason that these perverts attack young boys is due to the church's obsession at keeping women and girls in a lower class then men or boys. If the catholic church didn't have such an unreasonable fear of Mary Magdalene, we would see them preying on alter girls rather than boys. Regardless, it would still only be considered Pedophilia!

It's only the very insecure Christians that fear giving two consenting adults, who just happen to be of the same sex, the right to enjoy the benefits of a legal marriage. It can't possibly be because of some holy doctrine. You've blindly turned your eyes from the fact that legal marriages have been taking place outside of any church for hundreds of years. No heterosexual couple married by a judge, justice of the peace, or ship's captain has brought about the end of the world. This can only mean that you've been taught to be afraid of something that is of no threat to you whatsoever!

Why would any married couple call their marriage something else just to please you? Would you call your marriage a civil union if I felt like you should?

The same amount of whining that straight couples have been doing for years. Fortunately, marriage isn't all about taxes.

This is old news. What I want to know is when can me and Rusty get married so I can get some health care at the Vet and have someone else pay for it?
