Idiot.
Comparing same-sex marriage and opposite-sex marriage to poison and sugar is stupid. Your continued attempts to disparage same-sex couples has led to your disgrace. No one here, including you, has ever put forth a legitimate argument for denying gay couples the right to marry one another.

Our marriages are based on love, so are your marriages. When we enter into a marriage with one another, we do so with the intention that it will last a lifetime. So do you.

The only difference is gender composition.

The bottom line is that you hate gays and wish the world would felt the same way as you. That's not reality, Narcissus.

You aren't a god. You're barely a man.

I wonder how you would have turned out had your parents had the doctors to snip your bits at birth and raise you as a girl? You very likely would have grown up as a lesbian--maybe even transgender. You would certainly be singing a different tune.

Yeah, falsely.
I can give you plenty if example of SS couples who didn't provide loving homes. It only takes one to disprove your claim of all.
No it doesn't... If that were the case then it would only take one instance of poor heterosexual parenting to prove that all heterosexual couples are incapable of providing loving homes.

This is why you'll never be successful in your efforts here. You don't think these things through.

You calling ss couples married is stupid.
Falsely imposing an imposter relationship on the most important relationship in society is dangerously stupid.
The analogy was perfect.
Hundreds of relationships not called marriage are based on love. Moreover, the only distinction is not just gender.
I don't hate anyone. I hate denial, and this situation is steeped in denial. I state in your face simple, plain reality, and you squirm like a worm on hot cement.
As usual, you lie, distort, twist and close with a ad homoan hate attack.
Sad.

Now where is that woman who said we must fear the "mussbians"? She also claimed that her hubby wanted others to stop calling her group "reichspublicans" and that God had a plan that had been revealed to her and hub that was not available to the rest of us but that meant we were to do what she interpreted from the revelations on high, and to give up medicare and social security and voting because that is what God wants. Reply, dearie. There is a cream for what you suffer, and scripture is it's name.

I didn't claim that 'all' heterosexual homes are successful.

I did claim that natural parents provide the best setting by far for children.

I did claim that children deserve our best effort to provide a default mother and father if needed.

I did state that I don't think ss couples should be able to adopt or foster children.

You don't know what you are talking about, as usual.

So, what would you say to the thousands of same-sex couples who have successfully raised adopted children to adulthood? Are you simply in denial that they exist?

I have faith that you'll one day see the error of your way.

However, ss couples are only ever a mutually sterile duplicate gendered half of marriage.

No court can ever change that, can they.

LOL!!!
I lived there for over a year once on a transfer. Gray skies all year. From October 1st to May 29th you don't see the sun. The wet snow which comes down about every f-ing day in winter stays on the ground and accumulates until spring when the mounds which are pushed to the side by snowplows and shoves which have longed turned black due to the accumulation of soot finally melt. You freeze your ass off during this time not only due to the freaking absolutely bone chilling temperatures but also to the added benefit of the humidity which brings that cold clear through you no matter how many clothes, jackets and longjohns you manage to get on in the morning. Hit the road to icy streets covered in more salt than the Dead Sea which leaves your new car a rustbucket within 2 years.
Summer isn't much better. Humidity so thick and combined with the heat there's no use in taking a shower given you'll be covered in sweat the minute you put your first foot out of bed. Might as well lather yourself with Ivory soap then only to have the perspiration that follows rinse it off then repeat given you won't stop sweating until midnight that night. More bugs than a Malaysian rain forest as well and rain that leaves the place a muggy mess making sure your electricity bill tops $427 each month given you hopefully have an air conditioner.
Gotta love the inhabitants as well. Pasty fat white people whom all could easily pass as examples of the worst patrons WalMart could offer the world. Exotic to these people is taking a day to go to the annual fair only to down even more fried food which got them to be thunder clapping creations in the first place.
Trust me sunshine...been there...seen that. No jealousy here for someone throwing insults to me from 'Wooster, Ohio'...LOL!!!!!
LOL I like the weather. it's like Long Island weather...
Sounds like you've been to our fine Wal Mart...
