The real question is why do hater’s always digress to references of a sexual nature?
Why do haters of monogamous opposie sex marriage, ignore the fact that marriage is a sexual union of husband and wife?
Why do they feel compelled to focus on what people do to express their love and affection for their lover?
Why do they feel compelled to blur the distinctions between different types of sexual behavior?
]
Don’t they realize that regardless of sexual orientation we all have very diverse sexual desires and needs?
Yes they do, and that is understandable. However that doesn't all thing are equal, or serve the same function. Distinctions can be, and are made.

Marriage, at its core, in the larger sense, is a sexual union of a male and female. Granted there will always be some individual marriages that are not sexual, either by choice or physical obstacles, but that doesn't change the nature of marriage itself. Societies throughout human history have recognized this. That's why KiMare points to it a a constraint on evolutionary mating. Human reproduction is sexual. That's probably why SSM, despite some scattered historical examples, and the presence of same sex sexual behavior in various cultures, never truly took root,certainy not in western civilization. If it had, there'd be no need for this debate. SSM would have already developed, and would exist, alongside of both monogamous and polygamous opposite sex marriage.

I have not seen anyone express hatred for heterosexual marriages? Just because hatred is the central fact of your life, does not make it so for others

Technically Big D its either opposite sex, or same sex, marriage. As to your second assertion, I'm a lover not a fighter, unless I have to. Vita e' Bella mi amico. Loosen up, have some vino.

You are the one dreaming up hatred in others, i have not seen that, I am in a happy and strong heterosexual marriage, I have not see one post from folks supporting same sex marriage attacking my marriage, although I have had a few derogatory comments for you religious folks.

The only hatred for marriage I have seen, is from your side

No it is marriage, inclusive of both in the eyes of the law, equal in the eyes of the law, embracing one does not mean hatred for the other. Love can be like a candle, you can light many candles from one, and none of them diminish the light from the candle they were lit from

Hi Folks,
What we need to do is get down to BASICS. The Bachmann campaign will clear the air so that we can open our ears and hear the word, the truth and of the light as told by god himself to the enlightened who are available to tell you what is what and what you are supposed to do about it. Now her plan, GOD's plan is to deport all undesirables of every stripe and keep them deported. There will be a $15,000 fee charged to each "couple" and more for a family of course. The industry that will grow from this will be huge and a great investment and will repair all of our economic woes to such a degree that the Govment will have money left over to arm each and every one of us so that we can do what is needed when we see that it is needed. We can have peace and prosperity in one fell swoop and become the Dominion of God that the founding fathers intended where we are the world's GREAT THEOCRACY; One GOD, One WAY..or out.

And gay folks who oppose legal ssm for the same reason(s) that many straight folks do, will they be sent to "reeducation camps" so that they may tow the rainbow party line? That would fit in with your proposal.
how did you jump from from(my suggestion) encouraging bigots to move to red states?? to talking about camps??

are you so far to the reich, that you think in that language??

well?? benito????

i was just talking about gay tourist dollars, going to more gay accepting tourist destinations.

there is no "rainbow party"

by definition, anyone who joins the movement is tolerant.

Your vision is very limited then. Ahhhh.....the joys of dissenting from the orthodoxy of the leftist rainbow coalition, not all mind you, just some. After all anyone who dares criticize that secular sacred cow known as same sex marriage, by gosh by golly Mr Cleaver just has to be a bigot, it says so in the manual.

You, in the words of Bugs Bunny, are a maroon.

Oh no, he is right, they are not out to deny rights of yours, they are only asking for their equal treatment under the law.

And your hatred drives you to be against that equal consideration under the law.

You, and those like you are the only ones showing hatred, the only ones attacking marriage.

I am not a member of any rainbow coalition, nor a member of any gay community ( although I expect they would welcome me regardless of the fact that I don’t happen to be gay ) as I am not a bigot, and think all Americans should expect equal treatment in the eyes of the law

It is a matter of patriotism

as a human you actually dont seem that bad...

but as an debater, you s&ck..

rainbow and orthodoxy dont really go hand in hand in the same sentence...

orthodoxy goes well in a sentence with "tea-party"

or "new new rethuglican"

the whole idea of a "RAINBOW" is inclusivness..

im sorry that you want to have you three way relationship backed up by the law.

well do that when public opinion backs you up. and the rainbow will cover you.

public opinion backs up gay marraige.

sorry about your situation....

mabey someday...

I have one big suggestion for your karmic situation...

accept other people's marraige and relationships(including gay and lesbain marraige)

and the universe might reciprocate and allow(by law) your situation...

otherwise you are just digging a karmic hole for yourself.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: Sure. If you tell -- if you tell a child that somebody has to be their friend, I suppose you can force the child to say, this is my friend, but it changes the definition of what

And that's it seems to me what the -- what supporters of Proposition 8 are saying here. You're -­ all you're interested in is the label and you insist on changing the definition of the label.

Are you taken aback about how fast that happened?

I am, never have I seen public opinion sway this far this fast on a social issue like this.

I am proud to be an American when I see that, people stand up for equality and justice for people different than themselves.

I am sure you realize that a majority of support for same sex marriage is now coming from people like me, that don’t happen to be gay. For years I was in a minority, but now I look around and most Americans agree with me.

In my town, there are two public drinking fountains. One says "whites only", the other says "non-caucasians". The fountains are the same, the water is the same. Only the label is different.
