It's not over complicated, the Supreme Court said the "prop8" supporters to go pound sand.

1) I thought that you were "250 lbs of mean and angry fa**ot".
2) Do you live in the same town?
3) His anonymity has been compromised, by one of your lot, and you've not told your boy to stop doing that.. For shame.
1.) I can be mean and angry. But for the most part I'm a very passive and laid back guy. He has nothing to worry about.

2.) I live in Knoxville. He lives in Greeneville, about an hour's drive away.

3.) His anonymity was compromised by himself when he started cutting and pasting from his own, public blog. I don't know that any of my "lot" exposed him. A good amount of the stuff he posts here is so suspect that it's only reasonable to Google the crap that he says to see where it comes from.

4.) If he were the pastor he claims to be, seems to me that he'd be only too happy to sit down with a "reprobate" (his name for me). That's what pastors do. Besides, he has no problems letting his feelings be known on here. Half of TOPIX knows where he lives at this point. He's obviously not afraid of being confronted for his opinions and comments.

Dear, I just list the facts. If you threw up in your mouth, it's because you know it's true.

You guys have made a mockery of marriage.

People who have had to fight for it; people who have had to wait decades to have their relationships legally recognized; those are the people who TRULY appreciate its importance.

If marriage didn't measure up, why are you trying to impose an imposter relationship on it instead of establishing your own identity?
Your counter is only an idiotic exposure of the inner sense of inadequacy that homosexuality struggles with.
I keep trying to get you to see that self acceptance can only be established from a fearless honesty from within.

Now you are joining the other girls in being just silly stupid.
You don't know MY marriage. Your words are meaningless dribble.
Here is what we do know;
Homosexuals are expecting heterosexual marriage to shift them from constantly failed relationships to stability. You aren't bring class, you trying to establish class on the backs of women and children.
First off, gay men don't do anything on the backs of women (Or children for that matter).

I do know your marriage. I know everything about your marriage. It's no different than any other bigot's marriage.

You think it's special and unique. Hardly...

You guys are a dime a dozen. But you're becoming fewer and fewer. In 1960, nearly 60% of adults age 18 to 29 were married. Today, that number is 20%.

I guess you're not so special after all.

We do have to take responsibility for the state of marriage.

If marriage had been taken more seriously, if men and women honored their commitments to each other, married instead of living together,and kept for most part conception within the marital relationship, SSM wouldn't have a chance. It's because of "you guys made a mockery of marriage" that we're in the situation were in.

Didn't the poster children for gay....actially lesbian marriage, in Massachusetts divorce?

Is this a "test site" because it appears too many duds are going off in the posters faces?

1. I'm not trying to understand a ss relationship.
2. I'm not trying to change anyone's personal description of their relationship.
3. I'm not judging anyone's personal relationships.
I simply and accurately noted the reality of a core distinction between ss couples and marriage.
That has NOTHING to do with your statements above.
NOTHING you said changes the reality of what I wrote.
I'm simply pointing out that the reunion of a man and woman in marriage connects humanity with the very roots of their existence and, at the same time, reaches into the future with the next generation.
A ss couple just cannot equate to that depth of diversity in a heterosexual couple united as one, in anyway, shape or form.
The past and future joined by a man and woman into the present embarrassingly exposes the absolute barrenness of a ss couple.
It really makes it shameful to even speak of equating the two relationships.
You need to address the points I made, and not change the subject. Perhaps you need to just admit that these points ARE a profound difference between ss couples and marriage.
<quoted text>
I usually don't respond to your posts because they are so irredeemably stupid. Nor do they ever directly respond to the point of my posts.
I will make an exception.
An abusive relationship is different. Does that equate to "better/worse"?
Or here is my question to you. Does it matter how we define a relationship? Say when you tell the police you are the victim of an abusive relationship vs a friendship?
Your questions made no sense. We are not discussing abusive relationships. Please stick to the topic at hand. Your post was so stupid I don't even know what to say other than that.

The fact that SS relationships are a mating behavior defect is no opinion.
SS relationships are literally 'unmarriage'.

My eyes are wide open. I keep looking to see a real marriage. At the most, all I've seen is a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage!
What the hell am I not seeing???
Why does it matter to you so much? Are you gay and struggling internally with that? Did a family member (like one of your 2 sons, perhaps?) tell you he's gay and you're struggling with that? I'm pretty sure there are support groups for that in Pennsylvania if that would help you.

How about dealing with reality instead of doing a postmortem?

You made a mockery of your own marriages. Gays had NADA to do with that.

Actually, you've got a blown gasket if you think that you can tell KiMare that he's not allowed to talk about facts. He can talk about anything that he pleases, this is still my America, freedom of speech is guaranteed. Clam up.
So after your little speech about freedom of speech, you tell another poster to "clam up"? What a hypocrite. Typical troll behavior.
