Why are fundies such racists? Don't you believe Jesus thought enough of black people to die for us?

I am sorry that you chose to misinterpret it, and skew it , in order to try to seem clever.
Even Winston secretly knows Rose_NoHo's favorite tactic is a textbook example of Danth's Law. I think. Or maybe not. He's such a dope.

Perhaps you missed my point. I was saying that the only arguments that anyone has been able to come up with are based on religion. Without using false translations of the Bible, the anti-SSM crowd looses any semblance of validity..
You exclude the argument of State Rights, as well as the right of the people to regulate their society.

No, it does NOT change voting from a right to a privilege. It merely indicates that prior to that time, women were categorically DENIED their right to vote, for no valid reason beyond the mere fact that they were of a different gender than the Founding Fathers. Hey, the Founding Fathers were good. Considering that they had to invent all of this from scratch, they were incredibly good. But they still suffered from the prejudidices of their time.
No, it most certainly shows that it is a privilege. Doesn't matter how you try to twist it.

I'm not in a habit of "catching on" to dysfunctional, bigoted, narrow-minded, self-contradicting mentalities.

What you are proposing is either a bubble of cluelessness or the muting of gay people trying to gain rights vocally.

No matter which of the two is what your point resembles, there's no way you'll ever see me "catch on" to it.

(By the way, quite frankly, if you're afraid about homosexual talk infecting minors...walk a day in my shoes. Public school students, at least in my neck of the woods, are the most flaming homophobes you'll ever meet. "Gay" is a synonym for "Dumb" or "Dull" at our schools. I deal with closed-minded people like you every goddamn day.)

Unlike the Founding Fathers, we now have science that shows that a creator is not necessary for our existence...
No, the Big Bang theory and evolution do not, in and of themselves, "prove" that there is no creator (science can not do that!), but they work quite well to explain existence without invoking supernatural actions.
You miss the point. While the founders most certainly felt there was a "creator" in the fashion of a supreme being, the fact that science has lead away from that does not change the purpose and signifigance of the statement.

Creator does not have to be relegated to a "religion" in the context of this argument, it simply holds to the premise that we all have "right's" which are inherant in us simply by birth, they are not given nor can the be taken and the only purpose of government is to protect them.

"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.

We don't have a creator. The SCOTUS can determine law, but not reality.

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.
Yours is a tired and fatuous argument, given that what children learn from loving parents is universal - love, patience, selflessness, joy, persistence, limits, loyalty, honesty, compassion, empathy, generosity, consistency, and hope. Teaching these things is a loving parent's job, and a loving set of parents does this job, regardless of their genders. Why don't you know this?

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.

It's not teen angst, it's logic.

Which explains why you've spent so much time degrading people on this website with dozens upon dozens of condescending, hypocritical, bigoted, closed-minded, hateful comments.

Yep. You don't care.
