Indeed.

<quoted text>If they are endowed, or 'given', akpilot, they do not need our flimsy mortal protection - we simply have them forever and always. Since they are impossible to lose, by your reckoning, it logically follows that Government is here to recognize and facilitate them, not 'protect' them, and therein lies a fallacy of today's politics. Inalienable endowed rights, cannot disappear - they can only fail to be recognized by one's government.
The fallacy of your argument is that you assume that because people and governments may attempt to infringe on your right's, and the fact that you may be at times forced to fight for said right's that they are somehow not "endowed."

You either accept the premise by which our republic was founded or you do not, but the historical fact behind its founding doesn't change based on your opinions.

Nice critique, but the fact remains that you have focused on nothing except that facile view that you wish us to focus on, thus ignoring the more complete description that I have previously stated. 2 men or 2 women cannot possibly substitute for the complete upbringing provided by a balanced and natural biological set of parents. These children would be denied the access to one or the other parent, and the result is that these children will be raised by one party who has no blood relationship with them. They will always be deprived of either a mother or a father role model. Same-sex “marriage” ignores a child’s best interests. Period.
Rose's Law:
Morons with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?"

People can have, adopt and raise kids without getting married. And marry without having, adopting or raising kids. So, tell us, when a gay couple is raising a kid, how not allowing the couple to marry helps the kid. Please be specific.

"Racist"? What do you mean by "racist"? I have never heard of any "fundies" (as normalphobes pejoratively call them) contend that the Homosexuals and the lesbians are any better than Africans.

Guess Jesus didn't know what he was doing when he died for black people, huh? You, a racist fundie, knows better than Jesus. Huh? LOLSER.

Is screaming "racist" your answer to everything? Do you think you win a debate this way?

Please Rose, time to tear up that card, it's tired and worn. There is nothing racist in my comment to you and I stand behind it.

You really aren't very bright are you? Do you need instruction on how to sign your welfare check?

I did. But it got lots of negative judge-its. Some said I was "mean" to say that. Some said "clueless"!

Don't gay people think the founders were brilliant? Or do you think it's just because it's me saying they were?

Let me know toots.

Yes! What about the children Rose_NoHo? You never say. You just say anyone who asks is a moron. What kind of dumb-assed "Law" is that?

Another thing I was wondering. Why are you a racist?

Hey Winnie. Your hero Rose_NoHo promised to never respond to me ever again (what a dope!). So you're on your own defending her, she won't help.
Good Luck Jackass.
That makes three responses to me just dropping a light hearted quip. You seem a bit testy. Does this mean I won?

You're into magical thinking. You figure there is "something" a male parent can give a child a female parent can't. Yet, you can never tell us what this "something" is.

I got all excited at the prospect of you defending Rose_NoHo. Still am! But looks like I underestimated your intelligence for the first time. That's kinda hard to do! Sorry. Rose is on her own eh?

Yes. I believe you are familiar with my credentials that prove that my love for my Homosexual friends, the lesbians, and yes, even the Africans is second to none. I've read many things about Jesus, including much of his recorded speech. I have never read anywhere that he considered the Homosexuals and the lesbians to be any better than Africans.

Are you REALLY this stupid, or just pretending to be to make some kind of point? People are ashamed of all sorts of legal things. Some women are ashamed of arm pit hair.

That just doesn't work Winnie. You need to tell us why Danth's Law doesn't apply to Rose_NoHo but does to someone else. You can't just declare it's so. That's just silly!

What a dope!
