If you read my post then you'll note that I said I don't care which side of the SSM issue you fall on. I don't go after people who don't support SSM or those who do support SSM when it comes to their belief in Christ.
If you remember Laughing Man, he frequently claimed that he did not believe in Christ. It wasn't an issue for me. I didn't attack him for it. So why should I attack anyone else?
I'm not a pastor. At best I "witness"--which has always been an odd verb if you ask me. But basically all that means is that I tell my story, I repeat my beliefs, and that's it.
I debate people when they try to tell me that I should believe otherwise.
Now, back to this notion of you being impersonated... So, we're to believe that any "nasty" comments made under your name have been done by an impersonator? Really?
Too stoopid to understand sarcasm. Sheeesh!

Isn't that interesting? You're now the mouthpiece for Dr. King...
Coretta Scott King made the following comments in 2004 as the right-wing zealots tried to bring about a Constitutional Amendment that would have made same-sex marriage illegal: "Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection, whether by marriage or civil union. A constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages is a form of gay bashing and it would do nothing at all to protect traditional marriages."
So, who should we believe? You? Or the woman who was married to Dr. King?
And her own daughter disputes that view, as her father would too.

Maintaining marriage as it has been historically and cross culturally is 'gay bashing'???

MLK was too smart to make such a stupid statement.

I disagree. MLK was for liberating those who were oppressed. His focus at the time was obviously for the injustices focused towards blacks in this country but it's easy to see how his views would have extended to the gay populace. Added to that is his wife's testimony and the fact you cannot put words into the mouth of a dead man. There are no indications he would have not supported gay marriage. In fact it's the opposite. To lay claim he would have would be akin to claiming Albert Einstein would have rather used a set of tarot cards to determine wind resistance on space bound rockets rather than utilize scientific means. Martin Luther King was a man about freedom, not a man who supported limitations of the same.
Your analogy is ridiculous.

I don't doubt that MLK would have supported equal rights for GLBTs.

Calling a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half 'marriage' would not fly.

Post number 214346 written by you;
"Never the less, MLK never would have gone for calling SS couples married."
And now you do a 180 by advising this;
"I don't doubt that MLK would have supported equal rights for GLBTs."
So which is it? You don't make sense by offering your opinion based on two polar opposing views. It's somewhat like going to a pancake house while moaning you're dying to eat a stack of 10 of them smothered in maple syrup for breakfast while telling the waitress you hate flapjacks with a passion.
So which is it? Do you believe MLK would have supported gay marriage or not?
Ss couples do not equate to marriage.

Being treated fairly is another issue.

This is not difficult.

And WTF is this?????
"Mutually sterile"?? Are you to claim gays pursuing marriage are sterile??
Hardly. Their makeup is the same as heterosexuals in that they are able to either fertilize a member of the opposite sex if male or to be fertilized by a male as a female if they so wish.
"Duplicate gendered"??? Is that like calling a 12 ounce can of Coca-Cola a "carbonated cylindrical shaped aluminum skinned container of a sweetened beverage".
I'll stick with a can of Coke and the term of gay couples.
And "half marriage".- Either you're a married couple of your single. Some guy holding a bouquet of flowers wearing a tux while standing next to a limo in front of a church while a pastor waits inside all the while thinking some stranger will pass by at some point in time, fall in love and make him "fully married" still makes no sense to this fabricated term of "half married".
1. "mutually sterile" is not the same as "sterile". Are you really asserting that a ss couple can procreate just between them? This isn't rocket science blondie...

2. Now you are confused about a duplicate gendered couple? Really? I suppose a diverse gendered couple would blow your brains! My guess is it would sound like a burp instead of a bang...

3. ss marriage is an oxymoron.

Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.

A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.

1.) I am not blonde. Your first throw and a miss.
You did not limit the parties involved to a gay couple in terms of procreation. You inferred that those involved in a gay couple were 'sterile'. I merely advised you that was incorrect in that most are indeed able to have offspring. It has been done already in terms of artificial insemination by donor sperm and the like.
2.) No confusion.
3.) Many marriages of opposite sexed couples are not 'miraculous' or 'balanced' unless you deem the 60-70% divorce rate among most as being a miracle as well. As far as planets uniting you make no sense. Planets revolve within solar systems and do not make conscious choices as to their proximity or being.
You don't seem to be able to ascertain your opinions with fact but some sort of twisted poetic idealism. I'm sorry, you're just not convincing.
1. First you deny it, then you turn around and confirm it.

2. Yes, I did. That's what mutually sterile means. You tried to slip it by, and I called your gay twirling.

3. People breaking their vows does not invalidate those who maintain them.

"Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" sold 500 million copies.

Only a lesbian blonde would be unfamiliar with the book or the analogy...

I was specific. Your stance that gays are either not married or should not be married are based on your various opinions with no factual support.
We can put that in another context by stating it appears to me at least you are determining your opinion or opinions should be held as factual information when the truth is they are based on your views of the matter without any proof.
As one example would prove you showed no proof the late Martin Luther King would be against gay marriage but merely speculated he would given some claim his daughter advised so yet never answered to the fact his widow advised otherwise.
If it is your opinion gays cannot be married you are allowed that but to deny they have already been married with more continuing to do so is nothing more than delusional.
I'm sorry, like I mentioned before you're not convincing in your arguments here.
No blondie, you were not specific. Which points are not factual and why.

You failed to answer the question posed to you given your confusing statement(s) in which you claimed both MLK would be for gays marrying and MLK would be against gay marriage.
So again, which is it? Do you believe MLK would be for gay marriage or against the idea?
I answered in post 214357.

Why are you trying to change the subject???

It is you who failed to answer the question and changed the subject in your response to the question of what do you think MLK would think of gay marriage given you gave 2 responses with each opposing the other.
So which is it? Would MLK be for or against gay marriage in your opinion?
That's your opinion, and it's blonde.

<quoted text>I already gave you one. The fact it can be argued MLK would be for gay marriage given by the feedback of his widow but you did not answer to it. I still don't really know your stance given you gave two separate views on that subject and have yet to clarify which side of the fence you are on.
Your labeling of gay couples as being "mutually sterile" is your opinion as well apparently. No facts. Just opinion.
The idea a heterosexual union in terms of marriage being "miraculous" is no more than a statement of opinion. I would think a miracle would be someone shedding themselves of terminal cancer and living to 99 but if you want to hold an opinion that all heterosexual marriages are 'miraculous' by all means do so but stop being so ignorant as to think the reflects any factual information.
We could go on. You don't have facts to bolster your opinions so therefore they remain as just that - opinions.
Now here's a fact. Thousands of gays have been married. An increasing number of states are allowing gays to marry year by year.
You said my commentary about marriage was all opinion.

Now you are back tracking.

Can't back up your opinion?

Smile.

Sometimes it helps to do a bit of Goggling before making a fool of yourself...

"Bernice King, who has a long anti-gay past, took the stage yesterday at Atlanta’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. rally and included gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people among the various groups she said need to come together to fulfill her father’s legacy.

In a passionate, sermon-like speech about building unity, King said she didn’t care if people were Hindu, Buddhist, Islamist, were from the North side or the South side, were black or white, were “gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender”— that all people were needed to create unity."

----------

Seems as though she's had a change of heart regarding her views on rights for homosexuals.

Another Ralphs Grocery store has closed it's doors forever. This one was located at 1005 E. Arrow Highway San Dimas, California.

It is quit possible a Ralphs located on Grand Avenue in Glendora, California might suffer the same fate as the San Dimas store?

I'm a near senile old jackass.

I also am a redeemed cynic who remains a barbarian.

I enjoy sinking the knife of reality into the belly of denial to the hilt and twisting it with a smirk.

I am committed to kick at the darkness until it bleeds light.

I also am a genetic chimera AND a hermaphrodite. literally a lesbian trapped in a straight man.
