Ignored them. Like ignoring the 800 lb gorilla. It doesn't disappear simply by ignoring it.(It's still there)

I find it hilarious that homosexuals keep talking about no 'requirement' for procreation.
Especially when marriage needs protection NOT to procreate, and gays need protection to HAVE sex!
LOL
It's like the child begging for a cookie. Being told "no". And the child pouting "it was made to be eaten." As if that is enough to justify it.

Ya know......(not sure about this).....I do believe that we've heard that, already. I might be wrong about it, but suspect that it has already been pointed out.

"As legal a marriage as yours or mine"? Ya don't say. So the state has the same expectations of a same sex marriage as it does an opposite sex marriage, the same presumptions? It makes the same pronouncement, as in "By the power vested in me by the state, I now pronounce you husband and wife"?
<quoted text>
True

<quoted text>
Ahhhhhh.....therein lies the distinction, pun intended. As we already discussed, same sex couples, cannot, according to the legal definition in that state, "consumate" their marriage by the first act of sexual intercourse, also know as colitis. Thanks for playing though. But don't worry, u won't go home empty handed, we have a collectors set of "Big D" action figures.
Do those action figures have the capes? And, thought balloons that read "I'm all that matters"?

Many many times, but as long as they keep bringing up procreation as an argument, I will remind them again.

They forget so easily

Read it again big dummy. Where did I say it ever was?
Why would you want to require something you need to protect from?
Dumb, dumb, dumb...
That's like his other lie, the "most Americans...." one. He figures that if he says it enough, maybe someone will buy it. Or an errant veiwer will read it and leave with a warm chummy....

Hi,
You got to recognize that the only way to get the country going is for the congress to stop everything so that we can win back the White House in 2016 and begin GOD's reign for a thousand years. This Means stopping all the stalin-wet dream socialist security, mad scientist medicare, altar destroying minimum wages above $3 an hour, christ killing unions & benefits that rob our pride, bum making unemployment insurance, free medical services for fornicating women, education that teaches abominations like evolutions and sciences which fly in the face of faith and abortions at every street corner for misguided gays and leasbins or muslims.
When we have saved the money these awful wastes now consume we can build the great wall to keep out all foreigeners and weirdos who dont believe and who talk funny and prosecute gods wars as he tells the bosses to have us do. Join us in the TEAPATRY and we will go forth into the milleniums God Bless.

That's because it was the original concept behind marriage. You need to get up to speed, D.
I don't see why Big D and others feel the need to try and spin it that having children is not one of the main reasons we give government benefits to marriage. It's not necessary to lie. It's counterproductive.

Even childless marriages are good for society, that should be their argument if they were honest.

what we need said the congressman is for the minimum wage to disappear as it causes businesses to fail and/or not start. he is willing to compromise and says that if we absolutely must have this socialist stain on our books then let it be at the proven real amount that folks can get by on as long as they dont hoard their money. he says that studies have shown that when the wage was $2.25 an hour, why everyone was happier then and what we have now is a time when everyone is not happy so lets go back to the tried and true and get the wage to a stable $2.25 an hour, with no union meddling and no insane benefits for hobo bums who just want free stuff, then everyone can be happy again. We have to trust the party to have studied this and come to a conclusion that will benefit us all.
Why don't you go ahead and fire off an E-mail to the Bush family? Let them know they'll be happier without all of that dosh? I suspect that they'd be a lot happier depriving you of your money, but that is where you run out of justification. Get the hell off your soapbox, I don't need a pay reduction.

Me too. Big D just goes away for a while after you catch him lying, then comes back the next day like nothing happened and calls everyone else liars.

Ever notice he only posts during working hours? Stealing the boss's time.

Every relationship is different in some way than any other relationship. So what? Is that your only point? Or does different equate to better/worse?

Your post made no sense, as usual. Just the usual snarky crap in an attempt to stir something up. You just make yourself look like an idiot but apparently in your head think you're funny. How sad for you, little troll. Your response to this post will be the usual predictable snarkfest...
His post made perfect sense. It's your pretense of being an adult that makes no sense.

What matters is that you will not be defining others relationships.
Fact: same sex couples are married, as married as any other couple.
deal with it :)
All that matters to you is that you define everything, right?
