The Federal Marriage Amendment attempt failed in 2006. And in today's environment, it's even less likely to pass today.
It will never get to the states, I doubt it will pass the house, more Republicans are crossing the fence every week, and cannot possibly pass the senate. There is no point in a constitutional convention of state legislatures as it would require a 2/3 vote of state legislatures to go around the house and senate.

There are not enough states opposed to same sex marriage to get that, you would not even get California ( counted among his 31 states and dropping )

Used to be 50 states that would not recognize same sex marriages, today it is 31 and dropping.

They would not even get 31 states on board and adding 7 is a pipe dream, the momentum is going the other way

Yes the same people, it is turning that fast, and as more of our young folk turn of voting age, they are all on the right side of the issue as well.
Prop 8 is toast, regardless of what the court decides

Yes sir, that is exactly my point. You enjoy the privilege of typing coarse words. When I type those same words, in no more confrontational manner than you, my posts get deleted and never make it the same screen that you are allowed to splash them on. Bias.

I second that.

I cannot post "F**k" without asteriks. Rose_NoHo, X-Box and certain other "more equal" posters can.

And this how it goes, when I omit the asterisks:

Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator.
Although I had to edit it, for the post to go through, see? No confrontation here, but, without the asterisks, not gonna go through. So, please save your gentle chidings for someone else. We know bias when we see it.

It was post # 190448. It was deleted. If Rose_NoHo or X-Box posted it, it wouldn't have been deleted.

Gosh, it must be pretty bad to feel that your rights are being quashed. We gay people wouldn't know ANYTHING about that.

Seems the worm has turned...

Look, there are thousands of people using TOPIX at any one point during the day. Do you really think a moderator is following your specific posts? I doubt it.

My guess is that you've hacked off so many people in this forum that they routinely report your posts as being offensive. That's why you get banned.

It's not bias from the site moderators. It's just some folks who do a drive-by hit on your postings.

It comes with the territory.

I, personally, don't report people; unless they threaten violence. And that's happened a couple of times.

When I lived in Greeneville, TN and started "mouthing off" (i.e.: expressing my support for LGBT issues), a couple of people found out my identity, which wasn't hard to do in a small town.

They made physical threats against me; involving spikes if I'm not mistaken. It got a little creepy.

But I'm a big guy--6'5", 250#s. I don't scare easily. I've taken a baseball bat to the back of the head a few times. And I won't even get into the number of balls being slammed into my face (it's joke).
