PHUQUE Chick-fil-A. I never eat there, anyway. But I did sign your petition, though. Good luck with it.

Perhaps, a class-action-lawsuit against the discriminatory practices of Chick-fil-A?

'Monster mutation' Clearly major genetic mistakes.
If I can admit that, why are you such a sissy about admitting a epi-marker mistaken mark?
Smirk.
Epi-whatever is yet to be proven. And, even if it is (which I highly doubt it will be) it doesnít mean itís a mistake. And, yes, you are a monster, but, not because youíre a genetic freak.

Excellent work, by the way, unearthing this piece by Patheos. Well done.
Yeah, we are slowly becoming a gulag.... At least, that is if the SSM crowd has their way. "Left, right, left, right, repeat the mantra, denounce your neighbors, be a good citizen and avoid the re-education centers, etc" ...
"we are slowly becoming a gulag"

really??

this is actually a pretty free country by most standards...
especially soviet standards(you cited a gulag)

what do you care what the rest of us think??

no one is trying to denounce you......

im just trying to get across, that you MIGHT be on the wrong side of history......

But, I notice that you neglected to address the post addressing the issue of Constitutional prevention of the FED, as per decreeing marriage laws? Was this an oversight on your part, or did you find it impossible to scoff at the idea that the SCOTUS has no power to make any kind of ruling outside of its jurisdiction?
Arc of disbelief? That's a knee-slapper. The SCOTUS will be acting in an unconstitutional manner if it attempts to enact any kind of national decision pertaining to marriage laws, yes. We have had to live through decisions from them that we have disagreed on, but decisions that they were empowered to make, not like now. 20 that are not on your "I love XXXXXXXXXXXXX" list, I might add. Only 9 states actually give you what you want, and that is a small percentage. "they arnt the activist body"? That's a riot, they are more activist now, than they ever were, when they were unbiased. Unaffected by blatant and shallow lobbying. Immune to the filthy infiltration of a minority of libertines, as they are now.

Oh? What is my opinion on Roe V Wade? And Loving V Virginia? I don't care about what the rest of us think, I care about how we conduct our public selves. Think what you wish.

This SSM argument isn't about marriage, it's about government benefits. Admit that, and we have some common ground upon which to stand.

Are you serious, I know heís your new man crush and all, but, canít you see the hypocrisy of his/her/itís posts? Either heís lying about being a freak or lying about being a freak. Either way, heís a liar and a liar. Not to mention, he posts scientific THEORY as fact, and you sheep just eat it up without question. I had a bit of respect for you when you were a bigot just because you were a bigot, but, itís when you try to glom onto his deceptions that you lose all respectability. Why is it so important to you that you have common unity with your fellow haters?

Oh, pshaw, Public opinion is being ignored, trampled and dictated to us. I have plenty to fear, when truth is distorted and rewritten by the official sources, in spite of the real truth. It is a mark of tyranny and dictatorship beginning to rear its ugly head.
Thatís what all haters say when they are losing. Grow up, you big baby. Haters like you are a diminishing sort. Not everything that you donít like is a conspiracy. And, the only tyranny here is your obsessive and hysterical posts.

Don't use big words you don't understand Marram.

A "Scientific Theory" is a generally accepted explanation for an occurrence that is based on repeated testing. While it can be dis-proven with the addition of new evidence, your use of the word is incorrect.

Perhaps you should have used Hypothesis?

Itís about equality fool. You a-wipes are the ones who backed us into a corner. Now weíre fighting back and kicking your ---es and thereís nothing you can do to stop us but whine like a bunch of sniveling wimps. Donít like it, too bad mo-fo. The tide has turned and itís raining on you haters. Weíre smarter, better educated, organized and pissed off and we wonít stop until we have everything we want and maybe more. And all you can do is sit there and watch and run your toothless ignorant mouth. I suggest you got have another drink and beat your wife, maybe then youíll feel like a man.

"Haters"? Hmmmmm.....kind of proves Rock's point. Disagree with the leftist orthodoxy, their secular sacred cow, same sex marriage, and one is labeled a "hater".

Justice Sonia Sotomayor was questioning former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson, a pro-gay marriage Republican. She brought up a very interesting question during the exchange: If gay marriage is legal, what about polygamy?

Sotomayor asked, "If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what state restrictions could ever exist?" before referencing "polygamy and incest among adults," as reported by Matt Canham of the Salt Lake Tribune. The argument is an illustration of a broader issue about the culture of American society. To agree that gay marriage is indeed protected by the "equal protection" clause in the Constitution, wouldn't the same apply for all consenting adult relationships?

Justice Sonia Sotomayor's thought-provoking question was echoed by Bishop Harry Jackson, a minister at Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Md. He believes that "the real issue is the religious liberty issue and the issue of whether we can practice marriage as we believe it on an ongoing basis," and further stated that if same-sex marriage "is allowed to be mandated by fiat...then, right behind it, polygamy and many other forms of marriage will automatically sweep the land within just a matter of a few years." Advocates of legalizing gay marriage, as opposed to offering a compromise of "civil unions," which they argue is no different than "separate but equal" should consider this question.
