The gay community has known this all along. Hopefully word will finally spread to the rest of the country. All the more reason we need to tone down the wacky crap within our community.

From the article, "The article noted that 'Iowa’s 18-month experience with the newly legalized institution has revealed striking similarities to traditional marriage and no discernible harm to it,'"

Also, "....marriage is up in the state--and divorce has declined. In other words, gays are joining straights in marriage, and neither straights nor gays are divorcing in droves because of it."

DUH!!! We've been saying that all along, but the knuckle-dragging troglodytes are too busy wetting their pants to listen.

You spend time enough to post something absurd, but not time enough reading the article. Surprised?? Not me.

Everyone in the thread,

Note this reply.

This is the type of person who's never, never, never going to be convinced.

And while I appreciate the first reply in the thread about "toning things down," I will *NOT* advocate it for a millisecond until people like *THIS POSTER* are in a minority that has no real voice or influence *whatsoever*.

This person ignored the entirety of the article, and literally *fell back in hysteria, in screeching hysteria*, upon the simple APPEARANCE of such a couple -- bringing us rrrrright back to square one, acting as if they're "freaks" and "horrifying." This person is, to me, shocking filth, nothing more. I don't get it. These people make zero sense, and *they know they make zero sense*. Yet, still, they persist.

EVERYTHING ignored, ALL points ignored, ALL positivity ignored in the clinically obsessive, almost literally *batshit* mantra that it is bad, bad, bad. These people are senseless, and I continue to advocate opposing them by every legal means necessary *even if they suffer because of it*, and I won't stop.

Yes, what you said :)

And about the article: duh! We are human couples that come in a spectrum of varieties: just like straight couples. But basically, in our day to day lives, if a straight couple and a homosexual couple wrote down what they did last Wednesday, the lists would probably look just about the same.

And you do it again.

You know His Own, perhaps if you actually took the time to read and learn before you spout opinions and tried to tell me how to be a good Christian like you, your opinions would have a little more credibility. Just a thought.

I have already concluded that you are beyond advice. Yes, I was being fictitious with the title, so you can relax a little. I will have you know that you are talking to a child of God when you say "Christians like you" My opinions as you call it could actually teach you a little something if you did not already know everything. You have shown your immaturity...as well as some of the others that have posted...by name calling and snide remarks. Sorry, I will not be pulled into that foolishness...Bye now!

What study? And what percentage constitutes a "significant share"?

Now you're stealing other people's names, David? What a pathetic, f*cking little person you truly are. Now go paste another sparkly jeebus on your equally pathetic little webpage.

Mama must have left town for a few days, and Willy Bea forgot to take his meds, and broke out of the basement again. Mama should scrap the computer.
