I have a serious problem with gays pretending that gay unions are marriage. It is a offensive farce.
I have a problem with children being raised in a situation that deprives them of at least one parent AND one gender. I find it diabolically criminal to deliberately birth a child into that situation.
I have a problem equating obvious and critical distinctions in the attempt for those in denial to continue.
<quoted text>
I am being guided about "realistic problems" from someone who uses their septic system as a playground? Excuse me if I don't agree.
I am being challenged to think from 'my brain instead of my ass' by someone who confuses rare failure in the evolutionary design of procreation with high failure percentage in a manipulated genetic defect setting? Using horror story news accounts (which I could more than match), instead of scientific validation?

Perhaps you could point out how anything I said hinders "love, hope, compassion and understanding" because of a person's sexuality.

Additionally, the definition of a bigot is;

big·ot
&#8194; &#8194;[big-uht] Show IPA
noun
a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.

My post was about facts, not creed, belief or opinion. I would suggest that it is your response that fits the definition of bigot more accurately.

A wild guess would be this is why you have a problem with the word marriage too.

So far so good ... now tell us why what you and another man do behind a stall in a public men's room is a Civil Rights issue.
HOW MANY TIMES MUST YOU BE TOLD THAT SLY_CLYDE, DAN AND OLD SWIFTBOATER ARE NOT GAY? They are heterosexual men who are either married to women or have been married to women and 2 of them have grown children.

Now, just because you claim to be heterosexual and have had oral sex with men in drag doesn't mean EVERY Straight man is like you!!!

By the way the topic of this thread is Prop 8 and the right to marry.....NOT bathhouses, HIV/AIDS, ANAL SEX, PEDOPHILIA, CHILD MOLESTATION or anything else you have an issue with!!!

No one ever doubted Dan, and Old SwiftBoat are straight so stop getting things mixed up.

Clyde is another matter.

He comes across so gay it makes me want to punch out my computer screen. And what makes you so certain of his orientation?

Because he says he is?

He knows more about male-to-male anal sex than you do.

How do you explain that?

<quoted text>Well dipshit if you must know I have a niece who is gay. Tell me why she should not be allowed to marry the very woman that she has had a monogamous relationship with for 10 years? Tell me dipshit why should all the people that I have come to know and respect on this thread not be allowed the same frucking privilege that you have. Tell RnL,Waste Water,Mona Lott, This Old Gay and OH so many others why they should not be treated as equals.
Your niece can get married.

Who told you she couldn't?

Stockton and Mammothlakes, CA may be in litigation, but that usually means getting settlement of 10 cents on the dollar and everyone gets to admit - no wrong doing.

It also means they can't talk about it and when it is over they will have to sign an agreement to not talk about it.

What about the city's insurance plicys?

130K posts, and not one good argument against gay marriage! That's because there isn't one. It's a simple matter of equal rights.
A man can marry a woman, a woman should have that same right.

Don't like the idea? Don't marry someone of the same sex.

Is this something You learned during your "years" of "research" YOU claimed that you have done? I'm still waiting for you to post a link to your published study so we can see for ourselves.

If EVERY MAN WHO DESCRIBES THE ASPECTS OF ANAL SEX, in specific detail was Gay......THAT WOULD MAKE JUST ABOUT EVERY MALE POSTER IN THESE THREADS A HOMOSEXUAL MALE......is that what you are saying?

Sly_Clyde does NOT describe any details of anal sex between gay men and I happen to know him and his wife.......I seriously doubt he is Gay just because of some supposed writing style!!!

Hell, you seem to have a greater knowledge of what takes place with regard to anal sex more than anyone.....care to explain how or why? Does it make you Gay because you know about it?

Silly danny boy....
Nothing you posted changes the fact that all children have both genders in their lives. With gay couples, one gender is always missing in a parental role. That is a serious deficit.
Leave it to you to defend the atrocious assertion of gays that people in the neighborhood can make up that loss.
You seem to be under the impression that parental roles are established solely by gender. They aren't.

And your "serious deficit" is denounced by every professional organization dealing with children's health.

Must suck to just have to make stuff up in order to try and promote your agenda.

I have read your posts so trust me when I tell you that you have PROBLEMS far more serious than SSM. My advice would be to get back on your medication and fix your own life first.

Actually...My FIRST advice would be gor you to pull your smug sanctimonious, self righteous head out of your smug sanctimonious, self righteous azz. AFTER THAT you should get back on your medication and into treatment for what are clearly multiple mental health issues. DO it NOW.

'If you condemn some children to parents of only one gender
You lose from the onset. Your "condemnation" doesn't exist, its simply rhetoric.

Feel free to try again with your nonsense though. Nothing like baseless repetition to prove you don't have a valid argument.
