He was talking about another person's legal marriage?

Can you prove that this is the "tyranny" he was referring to?

The tyranny of secure and protected children!
The tyranny of happy and productive families!
The tyranny of elderly living a secure retirement!
The tyranny of youth looking toward a successfulfuture!

SUCH Tyranny!!!

So now we have the tyranny of the minority.
First, you would have to explain how another person's marriage could be deemed "tyranny", since it harms no one and helps the families involved.

Looking at the definitions of the word, there isn't a single one that seems to apply to gay people seeking the SAME right to legally marry that other couples already enjoy.

Now, gay people have been fighting tyranny themselves, by every definition of the word. And we are finally beating it.

Rodney Erickson is trying to get approval for settlement offers for all of Sandusky's victims.

Penn State could soon be paying out millions and millions of dollars to all the victims of coach Jerry Sandusky.

You're pickin' trade up on the street like that. That's nowhere. I mean, you gotta get yourself some kind of management. You need my friend O'Daniel. He operates the biggest stable in town, in fact, in the whole god-damned Metropolitan area. It's stupid, a stud like you paying. You don't want to be stupid.

If harms no one, then expand marriage even further. No harm....right?

Gay people ALREADY HAVE THE SAME RIGHT to marry, enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, valid in all fifty states. Seems dishonest to claim otherwise.

The fields of psychology, psychiatry, biology and sociology have determined that homosexuality is not a disorder and not a deviant behavior. And here you are, using terminology from these fields to try to convince us that homosexuality presents a danger to humanity.
Please... Give us a break.
You're an armchair, wanna-be clinician--at best.
Here's a clue... Check out the fact that there are over 7 BILLION people on the planet. Homosexuality has done nothing to negatively impact the "propagation, diversity, and health of future generations..."
Love it.

In spite of 'psychology, psychiatry, biology and sociology' not knowing what causes homosexuality, you claim they can determine the normalcy?

Do you really think anyone believes that nonsense.

Smile.

Funny how your post reads, because libtards seem to always shout about "democracy" and FOR mob rule. This time the wishy-washy shit cultists have changed their tunes.

No surprise, though. Shit cultists have no moral center, no actual foundation they operate from. to destroy Civilization is all they want. Anarchists and analists.

Andy Kessler, a super-wealthy former hedge fund manager.

Seriously believes that if people like his 16-year-old son would stop volunteering at homeless shelters, homelessness would disappear.

Like go away?

Hitler did something like that too.

Glendora, California city council and city staff in city hall believe the same things as Andy Kessler too. In fact they have passed ordinance's to make it a crime to be poor in Glendora, California.

Just ask:

Deborah Neal

Joseph Santoro

Judy Nelson

Karen Davis

Deborah Wilson

Gene Murabito

Douglas Tessitor

Jeff Kugel

Jeff Jeffers

Some of these people listed are member's of the Glendkirk Church what are they teaching them?
