Homophobia was psychiatric jargon invented to describe a person’s fear of homosexual inclinations in him or herself.“Gay” activists simply stole the term and redefined it as “hate and/or fear of
homosexuals.

The fundamental basis of marriage is a cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
There is an obvious distinction between redumbant gender couples and diverse gendered couples. You know, the union of Mars and Venus vs the collision of Uranus and Uranus.
Pointless prattle. Marriage is a legal contract. Marriage is a right. We should have equal rights in the US. You are against equality.
KiMare wrote:
Which brings us to the inherent harm, unhealthiness and demeaning factor of anal sex. A violent abuse of evolutionary design.
That makes no sense.
And no matter how often you are told the facts, you try to equate anal sex and homosexuality. MOST people who have anal sex are straight. And not all gay people do. Anal sex isn't inherently harmful, demeaning or unhealthy. More importantly, the sex acts people choose to engage in are none of the government's business.

On a more personal level, a love relationship between diverse
genders results in human fruit.
Since you don't have to be able to reproduce in order to marry, that's a non issue. Learn the facts!
KiMare wrote:
The singular birthplace of every single other relationship. Worth of distinction and protection. You are a product of such. However, your duplicate relationship is absolutely desolate. There is no more a profound distinction...
All of this makes it absolutely idiotic to equate the two relationships. A silly attempt to impose an imposter relationship on marriage. A counterfeit that becomes more and more exposed the closer it is joined to the real thing.
Smile.
Do you think you should have been aborted? Can you reproduce? If you could, would your kids also be, as you claim you are "monsters"?:)

First, You show your inability to understand valid reasoning. Second, The 14th Amendment does not require anyone to marry.
But, it requires that people get equal protection under the law. You do know it was sited in Loving v VA? You do know what was a case about marriage?
R Hudson wrote:
Third, homophobia is a nonsense word invented by “gay” sophists as a rhetorical weapon against its opponents.
Why do homophobes object to the word? And all words are invented.
R Hudson wrote:
It lumps together all opponents as mentally-ill “gay bashers” and in doing so declares mainstream doctrines to be harmful and illegitimate. You'll have to define the term and the distinction between homophobia and non-homophobic opposition to homosexuality.
LOL! If you are opposed to homosexuality, you are homophobic, by definition really. Sort of like a person who is opposed to white people would be racist.
R Hudson wrote:
And, finally, fourth, gay marriage isn't an institution, yet, and it won't be. It is a flash in the pan, and will disqualified soon.
No, it will be legal in all 50 soon, and in less than a generation, people will wonder what all the fuss was about.

First, your insults are a poor substitute for logic. Second, I did not say any such thing, show where I did, along with showing where I said that I approve of slavery. Third, you are describing a scenario that does not match with the first one that I tore apart. This is a different one. And you are also mixing your genders,
If gender isn't the issue, why would that matter any more than mixing hair colors?
R Hudson wrote:
now, misdirection again, as described by AKPilot. Neither will be allowed to marry in the majority of states, because SSM is still illegal in most states. Not a gender issue, an issue of sexual behavior.
You claim it's an issue of sexual behavior? It's not. No matter what type of sexual behavior a woman engages in, she isn't allowed to marry a woman in all 50. And why not? Because gender is the issue.
R Hudson wrote:
Dragging in some garbage about inter-racial marriage is a poor attempt at obfuscation. We aren't destroying any myths about SSM, with that inter-racial garbage.
Did you just learn the word "obfuscation"? Well, learn how to use it properly before you use it again.

Rose Tactic #6- Falsely accuse others of lies- when proven wrong through links to previous posts revert back to tactics 2 and 4.
Rose Tactic #7- Claim to have made an argument, then claim others can't counter the argument that doesn't actually exist.

Don't be so stupid. Training is not "union dependent", that is to say, that training happens with, or without, union presence. Dumbass. Any boss that wishes to have a job performed, correctly, will provide training. Idiot. Are you seriously purporting that the only reason a boss provides training is because the union showed up and demanded it ? Schmuck. Get real. I have enough backbone to stand on my own, and get what I want, without the presence of a crowd of thugs, standing behind me. You really are stupid, you know that ? I do not "do without', as you have claimed, and I have myself to thank for that, not your mafia-backed gang of cut-throats. Chicken-shyte. If you were a real man, you'd have enough backbone to walk in to any man's office, or woman's, for that matter, and speak clearly, and achieve your goals. Are you afraid to make eye contact with someone ? Putz. Go ahead and pay your dues, junior, as any coward does, who needs to belong to a large group, in order to be heard. Don't try to understand me, as comprehension of a real man is plainly beyond your grasp. F**K the unions.
lol ... you clearly are the idiot, my union teaches a skill, we are not cut-throats, we are on the top of our game that is why th employer pays us what we are worth. Our lowest pay scale is $37 hr. and we have the best medical and pension around, go choke on y our bosses manhood you little scab

It's funny that you "small government" con dumb think government should be in charge of enforcing traditions. Do you think someone who gives a couple something made of china instead of cotton for their second anniversary should go to jail?
BTW, unless a non consenting party is involve, and act can't be immoral. So, unless someone is forced into a gay marriage, it can't be immoral.

I told you that the nonsense in your head was no substitute for actual proof. You cannot show me saying that I approve of it. Men and women do have equal rights to marry.
Just not true.
If a man walks into the JP and asks to marry a woman, he'll be told "yes", if a woman does the same thing, she'll be told "no".
Has nothing to do with sexual behavior. The JP won't even ask.
"Yes" != "no".

Neither gender has a sanction against their right to marry. Women are as free to marry, as men are.
Blacks and whites were both free to marry before Loving v VA. But still laws against inter-racial marriage violated the 14th Amendment.

Not an equal right.

Tell KiMare that.

And your made up "fun fact" about hetero couples engaging in more anal sex than gay couples is a lie.
Really? What percentage of the population is made up of gay males?

3) Because same-sex couples cannot create a child-producing combination by themselves, their relationship is a recreational activity more like tennis than like marriage.
Feel the same way about heterosexual couples who can't or choose not to reproduce?

R Hudson wrote:
The universal inclusion of all opponents as homophobic is of course not emphasized. Homosexual activists publicly associate this label with violent “gay bashers” and hateful fanatics. When gays use the term, they want people to think about the killers of Matthew Shepard, but in conventional practice they include every man, woman and child who believes homosexuality is abnormal or wrong. Secondly, the term defines opposition to homosexuality as a mental illness. homophobia is a nonsense word invented by “gay” as a rhetorical weapon against its
opponents. It lumps together all opponents as mentally-ill “gay bashers” and, in doing so, declares mainstream doctrines to be harmful and illegitimate. It is fallacious and specious. Abuse of language is a dangerous thing.
3) It is not "phobic" at all, it is sensibility. And can you define any differences between homophobic and non-homophobic opposition to homosexuality?
Can you define any differences between racist and non-racist opposition to all white people?

4) No, it won't. Common sense will prevail.
