His low opinion of same sex marriage is still a compliment compared to my opinion of his marriage. And my opinions are as important as his opinions are.:)
The only thing that actually counts, is the legal opinion, and just about all movement is in the right direction
Excellent post!

You know, one of the only reasons I even engage this troll is so that any young or closeted gay people who might come across his words can have both sides of the argument presented.

Kimare is obviously a homophobe, for lack of a better word.

He believes that homosexuals are broken--physically and emotionally. And doesn't mince words when it comes to expressing his opinions.

I think his words incite hatred and fear.

And the more of us who counter his comments with words that support the LGBT Community, the better.

He is in a dwindling minority of Americans.

I think anyone that hands their moral compass over to political figures ( you know, those guys behind the pulpit that twist ancient texts to mean whatever they want them to mean for today ) are broken mentally and emotionally.

I happen to be straight myself, so are my children, I do have a few friends in the LGBT community, specifically a very close friend in the T category that I speak with every week ( although on the other side of the country for the last couple of decades )

My problem with these bigots is their un-American attitude. Wanting to single out a group of people based on Race, Color, Creed, Sex, Religion, Orientation or National Origin and deny them equal rights is specifically un-American.

And that's your problem. You don't give a damn about the law or the Constitution, just your personal agenda.
And it is this attitude, once exposed, that will prove detrimental to your cause and public opinion towards it.
You seem to think that the LGBT community is acting in some secretive manner; that our attitude needs to be "exposed" so that others can see it.

We have acted above board with regards to our processes. We have sought justice through the court systems.

Just because you don't believe we are acting in a way that the Constitution permits doesn't mean that we don't have the right to pursue whatever avenues we believe we need to take.

How many court cases are heard each year in which plaintiffs are told that their case has no merit?

These people aren't abusing the court system. It just means that a judge or group of judges believe that they are wrong in the eyes of the law.

So, if we fail at the Supreme Court, it doesn't mean that we have acted duplicitously.

Besides, if our argument was so obviously out of step with the Constitution, how did it get this far? Don't you think our case would have been struck down by Judge Walker, the three Appellate Judges, or refused by the Supreme Court?

Apparently, folks seem to think our argument warrants their time and attention.

You hit the nail on the head, every court so far that has looked at prop 8, including the Supreme Court, disagrees that it has no merit ( else they would not have taken the case )

He thinks more of himself than any judge

Poor little guy is in for a disappointment

True, and different judges can interpret the Constitution differently, as we have seen with this issue.
Well, except that all the judges that have heard the Prop 8 and DOMA cases have agreed that they're unconstitutional. On that they all seem pretty much unified.

Imaginary Playmate Bless America
"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. "
Imaginary playmate Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
Imaginary playmate bless America, My home sweet home.
Thanks paisan that was funny.

Movie suggestion for Big D!

Imaginary Playmate 2006.

Director: William Fruet
Writer: Christine Gallagher
Stars: Dina Meyer, Rick Ravanello, Nancy Sivak

Suzanne and her stepdaughter Molly move into a new house, hoping to start afresh after Molly's mum passed away. When the seven-year-old makes an 'imaginary friend' named Candace, Suzanne assumes it's just her way of coping with everything that's happened. But as Molly's behavior becomes ever more erratic, Suzanne begins to suspect that her stepdaughter's new playmate might not be so imaginary after all.

Facebook may stop allowing beheading videos, don't worry that's the new form of entertainment for Muslims and their respective countries.

Just restrict them to Muslim countries ONLY.

You're OK too paisan. Imagine if we left this thread to Big D and his ilk, they could chat all day amongst themselves and try to out-liberal each other.

Too funny!
