Pope Francis has said gay people should not be marginalized but integrated into society, in some of the most conciliatory remarks by a pontiff on the issue of homosexuality and he's the Boss.

Can you imagine if heterosexual marriages were called before the courts and scrutinized the way same-sex marriages have been?
Can you imagine a group of couples who have had abortions, extramarital affairs, multiple divorces, dead-beat dads, etc. having to try to argue why it is that heterosexuals should have the right to marry?
The state could show statistics about how unstable heterosexual marriages have become over the past few decades. They could ask courts to either eliminate states supported heterosexual marriages or they could argue for severe restrictions on heterosexual marriages; making potential couples go through a series of medical and psychiatric tests, just to make sure that couples are truly worthy of marriage.
That's what gays have had to do. We have been scrutinized and had our personal lives investigated at every step of the way in the fight to obtain the right to marry.
And while many straight couples would qualify for marriage after being thoroughly tested; many would not qualify. They would be banned from marriage.
I'm just trying to point out the ridiculousness of the arguments that Kim keeps making, especially the argument that only couples who have the ability or potential to procreate should be allowed to marry.
If he and others are going to so narrowly define marriage for gays, then they need to narrowly define it for themselves. They need to put structures in place that would reduce domestic violence, abortion, child abuse/neglect, parental abandonment, divorce, adultery, etc. BEFORE a heterosexual couple could marry.
What's good for the chimera goose is good for the devastatingly gorgeous gander.
There is no such thing as a ss marriage.

Your denial is only proved by your last statement. I'm not trying to be offensive, but a Bruce Willis look-a-like is disparaged by a down right scary ugly gander. Really???

Major announcement from the Vatican...
"Pope Francis reached out to gays, saying he won't judge priests for their sexual orientation in a remarkably open and wide-ranging news conference Monday as he returned from his first foreign trip.
'If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?' Francis asked.'We shouldn't marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society'."

WOW!
Being homosexual and immorality are two distinct things. I'm sure the Pope distinguishes between them. I also doubt he would okay calling ss couples married.

Oh, maybe the mockery will continue. You know, I say to Kim and Rock that we'll make better marriages simply to annoy them.
They take such great delight in telling us that our marriages don't count.
It annoys me that they do this, so I feel that turn-about is fair play.
Nevertheless, I will stand by my comment that heterosexual marriages could not stand the level of study and scrutiny that has been heaped on same-sex marriages for the past several years.
If people looked at heterosexual marriage the way they've judged and picked apart gay relationships, there's not a doubt in my mind that they couldn't pass muster.
Seriously... If they're going to look at every single aspect of same-sex marriage and demand that we aren't fit, then their marriages should be just as closely inspected.
So, if they're going to continue to insist that only certain people should be allowed to marry, then I'm going to suggest that probing investigations be done on couples who wish to marry. They should be evaluated for potential adultery problems, divorce likelihood, anger management issues (to stem any abuse problems), etc.
And only after they've passed these rigorous tests should they be issued a license to marry.
That way, people like Kimare Kardashian, could be certain that only the cream of the crop are allowed to marry.
How can something that does not exist annoy me?

ss marriage is an oxymoron.

What is funny is that it does exist, you just have your eyes closed to it.

It is legal, and recognized on the state and federal level regardless of your sitting in a dark room with your eyes closed.

Frankie rolled to a bar, but wasn't able to enter because there were no ramps.

He hired an attorney to sue the bar's owner. They were able to reach an agreement where Frankie received a lump sum of $150,000.

Frankie spent part of his money on a "Coca-Cola red" top of the line "Jazzy" scooter with a reclining, gel cushioned seat.

His friends and family are hopeful that Frankie's new "Jazzy" will inspire him to get out of the house and away from his fookin computer; you know the one, where he makes 15 comments every half hour.

I'm so glad this story has a happy ending.

YOU think you look like Bruce Willis?!? Are you SERIOUS?!?

I've seen a photo of you... You look more like an Ewok.

And I don't think Bruce has a vag.

Why would you demean yourself this way?

Religions are losing their appeal because their teachings and beliefs are being destroyed by their own 'sinning' members. They keep changing their beliefs and lowering their moral standards because that's the only way to keep members and their money coming in. Modern religions are now nothing more than money making businesses.

I don't argue, I simply point out reality.

I am a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian.

I sink the knife of reality to the hilt into the belly of denial and twist it with a smirk (just like Bruce Willis).

I kick at the darkness until it bleeds light.

This coming from the angry jackass who types 50 times the words I do each day. Priceless! Just priceless.

I pay my own way. I earned every dime. Every dime was taxed to death. I take nothing from you. I pay more taxes than you earn in a year.
