Not true in terms of education, healthcare, wealth equality, birth mortality, etc.

[QUOTE]Full of Conservative Christians who risk their lives to help other overseas. Conservatives who care abs love others and send millions of dollars to help other countries in need!"

Most Conservative Christians are the ones pushing for killing and wars overseas.

[QUOTE]Why do you think Texas has no "kids gun down" problem?"

They do. Texas is one of the worst states in the union with the highest teen pregnancy, poverty, stupidity, illiteracy, etc.

[QUOTE]Did you know that cities that allow guns are less violent and have less crime?"

Not true. You are lying.

[QUOTE]Do you really think that taking guns from law abiding citizens will reduce crime?

Yes Amerifat. Statistically it's been proven that less guns = less killing. Look at UK with only 35 deaths caused by guns last year.

Yes, since Libtrads started running Congress!!!

I do believe it was quite a bit more complicated than you imply...

March 2000 California voters voted for prop 22 (61.4% to 38.2%), a law essentially identical to prop 8 that came later.

Prop 22 was ruled as unconstitutional by the California State Supreme Court in May of 2008.

Prop 8 (essentially the same as prop 22) passed as a constitutional amendment (52.24% to 47.76%) in Nov 2008.

Judge Walker overturned the law August 2010. A stay has held up any marriages for same sex couples though.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed Walker's decision and continued the stay Feb 2012.

It now awaits the US Supreme Court for final decision.

This is hardly the action of a single out of control judge. It also isn't the re-writing of anything by one judge.

No, it's about repression. When I can legally marry another dusty mangina, there's no affect on your marriage. You are still as married as you ever were. Nothing changes, the world continues to rotate daily, and haters will still be haters.

Why bother regulating marriage at all? Why does it matter who marries who? You could've easily said, "....legally marry two dusty manginas, or a related dusty mangina, or dusty womangina? Why does it mmatter who marries who legally, that is?

putting aside the issue of the vote, a vote should be upheld both sides rallied and the losers of the vote should not have voted if they were unwilling to accept the outcome of the vote.
regarding this issue, america should relabel marriages as domestic partnership. this would render all couples equal and "marriage" would remain a religious ceremony for those whom choose to do it.. like baptism
Marriage is a legal contract, not a religious ceremony.

While those issues have been confronted over and over in history, calling gay couples married has only extremely rarely and briefly been attempted. A clear distinction.
Ho, Ho, Ho.
Monster mutations were killed. Even now, DNA tests are done on fetuses so the mother can abort if there is an abnormality. As in the case of a chimera.

Now that gay marriage is legal in MD, when are members of the Ravens going to be forced to marry each other? Your claim was that members of pro sports teams would be forced to marry each other when gay marriage is allowed.
Any sort of idea on that timeline?

Based on a specific relationship, that of husband and wife. Those states that have legal ssm based it on that same contract, eliminating in essence, that part of the contract referencing the sexual union of husband and wife.

LOL you have some tough times coming kiddo
The case has already been made, and passed the court, and the appellate courts, that it should be lega, that making it illegal is unconstitutional.
there are 50 states, 20 years ago it was not legal in any of them.
Now it is legal in quite a few, and that number is growing every year. The number of countries legalizing it is growing even faster.
Just as poly is now...Illegal in all states, but about to change. You didn't really think that the issue was solely for the benefits of the gay crowd, only, did you ?

He seems terrified of even discussing polygamy, so probably not.
He wishes it would go away because he's not smart enough to debate it. He gets angry because I won't let him dismiss it. The he says he laughing at me. Next he'll be calling me a liar.
But that's the Big Dope!
Kind of like ol' Chongo trying to decide what IS an issue and what isn't...hilarious.

Ahhhh.....so you're interested in the bennies but don't like the delivery method. Is that it? Why should the feds care who marries who, if all it is, is a benefits package?
