Pointing out something that was presented as Quote in fact wasn't, is not nit-picking, it is fact checking.
It's nit picking, just arguing semantics.
You do that because you don't have real arguments.

Kind of like your nonsense about quoting the Declaration of Independence is presenting a "religious" argument.

You really are an idiot Rose.

The only thing you "rip to shreds" is common sense.

So, you aren't the "masculine" leather kind of homosexual? You "swish" fem queero-sexuals are the worst kind of gay. Even the lesbians are higher up on the pecking order over types like you.

It's also a civil right, or haven't you been paying attention now too?

Procreation is traditionally the endgame of marriage.
And yet throughout all of recorded history there have been marriages which going in are never ever going to be a part of that tradition. If you are talking Christian tradition, you also didn't bother to pay attention in History, either. Marriage wasn't a requirement of the faith until the Middle Ages, you got a blessing for your betrothal, which gave you the go ahead to consummate to your heart's content, marriage was left to local law and custom. The Church did offer an optional blessing in the way of religious ceremony, but for the common folk, not only did you have to pay for it, you had to walk in with live proof that your betrothal had been consummated. The Catholic Church coming out with the requirement that the faithful be married in the Church was one of the catalysts for the Reformation, with Luther, Calvin and others opposed to the Church interfering in that way.

Let me break it down for you hon. We the people have a right to be married in the eyes of the law and according to the common law on that subject, it is a right which can only be denied to we the people, when a compelling interest of the state is served in doing so. Your hang ups about having to share the title of marriage under the CIVIL LAW are of no interest to the state whatsoever. In the case of those who wish to marry someone who is legally eligible to marry, but not legally approved to marry, because they are not of the "right" sex, there is no interest of the state, compelling or otherwise, being served in their denying we the people, our right. In real terms this means, California's amendment is toast, probably without so much as a hearing, the Court will likely announce this shortly after the election when they are going to finally have a case they can kill DOMA with, on election day, marriage equality is likely to be approved by the voters in three states and a constitutional amendment killed in a fourth and all before Christmas.

Thanks for playing, but we've already gotten past you.

Nice one, Mike, Nice.
Danth's Law (also known as Parker's Law) states:
“If you have to insist that you've won an Internet argument, you've probably lost badly.”
It was formulated on the popular Roleplaying Game forum, RPG.net and named after the now-banned user who inspired it. As an internet discussion grows and grows, it's often tempting to declare victory and move on, especially if you've rammed the point home too many times and your opponent just ignores everything you say. In this case, declaring victory and moving on may be legitimate and excusable.
Unfortunately, the majority of the time, declaring victory is just spin: a last desperate attempt to trick people into believing you came out on top (providing that they don't actually go and read the discussion, of course). Sometimes, the individuals declaring victory may well be convinced that they're right; often they'll have gone into the discussion knowing that they're right and with no possible option that they might be wrong. When combined with the ability to expel someone from the discussion, Danth's Law takes on a more sinister tone - indicating that a group or individual can only defend themselves on their own terms, through the medium of extreme deceit.
More specifically, the person declaring themselves victorious against strong opposition generally cites the quantity of opposition as why they won and no longer have to argue to prove their point - after all, if they weren't so right, why would people be so desperate in refuting them with post after post? This may consist of complaining about the opponent's 'way' of arguing, or just the amount of arguing, number of points brought up, or number of people arguing against them as evidence of their victory, as nonsensical and contradictory as that assertion logically is.

This explains ross-no-hope/a.k.a. Chongo perfectly....
It should be renamed Rose_NoHo's Law.

It's the real "Rose's Law". Forget that dopey one about morons and children she thinks is even smarter than her stinky farts.
