Ok, so if a same-sex couple who enter into a legally-binding civil contract by which they are recognized by law as partners in a spousal relationship and thereby entitled to the same legal rights, protections, and taxation guidelines as heterosexual couples who are legally "married", but they solemnly promise never to utter the word 'marriage' in connection with their own civil arrangement, it's all good?

I'm sorry, I thought the woman you were with was divorced. She wasn't? Was that just a rumor?

And LOL.

Really?

Too funny.

You cannot with any sanity provethat other folk's marriages - people you will never meet - are "impostor" simply because you don't like them. And gay folks are not any more likely to be sterile than any straight person. And, yes, are no more likely to produce children then ANY sterile married heterosexual couple.

Since children are not required for any marriage license, your worrying about the fertility of other married couples is too silly.

And NO humans are ever "duplicate".

We are all wonderfully unique.

Can't do any better than this silliness?

I know you can't, that's why you continue to repeat the same absurd stuff.

Batch, you are utterly incapable of insulting me. Clearly you're inclined to make an attempt and, in the process, make yourself look foolish. By all means, continue with that strategy. Only your credibility will suffer for it.
Just making the observation.... Joe Biden told America had to have "skin in the game", then the stats are half the country pays no income tax and also qualify for an Earned Income Tax Credit.... So who pays the bills? There are makers and takers and the takers will usually vote against makers. People may have jobs but not pay into the game..... That makes them zero liability voters..... No insults here, just merely using facts...... You got any? Don't use moral equivalence please....... Facts and not emotion is what is needed..... Is your Chicagoland going to fall like Detroit?

Well, we who pay income taxes pay the bills. And this has exactly what to do with the topic at hand? Are you saying those who are in favor of equal rights are less likely to be taxpayers?

Oh, I see. So same-sex couples would be, in your view, "takers". Got it.

I'm sure there must be some point you're trying to make here, but what that might be eludes me. Sorry. I'm just not smart enough to understand what you're trying to say.

What facts do you have about me that would prompt you to assume I pay no income tax?

Sure. How many would you like?

It appears to me that those who against same-sex marriage are the ones vomiting up their versions of morality in these discussions.

Sorry, I couldn't make sense out of that sentence and can therefore offer no response.

<quoted text>For the same reasons so many other other laws have been changed and amendments have been added to the original Constitution; existing laws are at odds with Constitutional law. Why was a "legal change necessary" to allow bi-racial couples to marry? Different reason? Weren't the original state-by-state laws against interracial marriage based on adherence to laws in the Bible? Should it be legal for states, on their own, to deny rights to people based on Biblical law?
Now, of course, please think of some ways to try to insult me - albeit unsuccessfully - for asking such questions. We're all used to your rebuking style by now.
Lide pretended the legal decision is a done deal. So do you. It's not.

I frankly don't care what this Court decides. I simply point out the vast distinction between ss coupleand marriage that no law can change.

Neither of you can argue those differences.

Ss couples have every right and opportunity to establish their own legitimate rights. They should not be the same as marriage because the relationship is distinct.

It's funny we've never been divorced?

Marriage describes a distinct relationship. Ss couples fail on every legitimate level as I've pointed out many times. They can only poorly fake marriage.

I never claimed a person was sterile, I accurately pointed out a ss couple is mutually sterile.

I never claimed a person was a duplicate, I accurately pointed out that a ss couple is GENDER duplicate.

Other than exposing your denial and comprehension problems, do you have anything of substance to say?

And that's why I not longer engage in dialogue with your. It doesn't matter what the law says; you simply dig in your heals and rest on your opinion. Your reality differs vastly from legal and civil reality.

Here's our reality; we're still legally and civilly married. Your opinions have no bearing on that reality, what-so-ever. We have a distinct relationship; it's called marriage. You can have Holy Matrimony if you like, because we've claimed the word "marriage".

But it's only a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of real marriage.

Different. Very different.

Real marriage is sacred. And scientific.

Ss couples are simply pretending. Even a child knows that, because they are NEVER mom and dad, are they.

But plenty of us non-"felon parloees" already voted the "christardo repuglicans" and those they support out of office this past November.

Here, let me refresh your "conservative" memory ...

Let's see ... the "surging in the polls" Romney was rejected is a "landslide" (for Obama!) while teapukes lost seats in the Senate AND lost seats in the House too.

I don't blame you for not wanting to let that slip into back into your conscious awareness. It probably still hurts a bit don't it?
