Then you are the same as them. You would deny them equal rights. Doesn't matter why. Does it matter why they want to deny you equal rights?
Read this very slowly, it is becoming tiresome having to continue to explain everything to you over and over again, I am not paid to educate you.

I am offering them EQUAL rights, the same equal rights ( or lack thereof ) that they want to enforce on others.

Equal... look up the word

It isnít that I actually want that, I am trying to put it into perspective, but you arenít going to comprehend it.

For all my jest.. perhaps that actually is an answer.

The government could stop recognizing all marriages, only recognize civil unions, release the word ďMarriageĒ to individual churches or other organizations that will perform ďMarriagesĒ and then each organization can set up their own individual rules that have nothing to do with the governments recognition of a civil contract that must be filled out and filed legally.

Different paperwork, everyone happy

Certainly would not affect my marriage any. I personally could care less what word the government uses.

I know you don't understand. Everyone else knows you don't understand.

I'm tired of trying to explain it to you fruitloop, so I guess we're done.

You wish to deny equal rights to people you don't like anyway. You're a bigot no use discussing equal rights with you.

Happy hating jackass!

Don't leave. DiRucci and his dance partner Hud are going to engage in rear axle coitus. Sort of like watching a donkey show in TJ.

Wrong again, and you would do better to not pretend you speak for anyone but yourself, it makes you look foolish, you are the only person that didnít understand, and the only person that continuously complained that you didnít understand. You speak for yourself... no one else.

I donít hate anyone, I despise some of the things they do, and it is usually a lack of perspective. Sometimes I flip the perspective for them to show them the other side of what they are doing.

I donít expect you to comprehend... so donít bother explaining that you donít.

No he didn't.....and Baker vs Nelson DOESN'T APPLY TO THE PROP 8 CASE. They are NOT similarity situated!!!
Baker vs Nelson has to do with a marriage license not being issued, the Perry vs Hollinsworth case has to do with marriage being a right for Same-Sex Couples and Prop 8 removing that right......NOT THE SAME...therefore Judge Walker was not BOUND by the Baker vs Nelson case and preceded with the trial!!!
Proposition 8 is almost identical to Minnesota's law defining marriage as one man and one woman.

Judge Walker ignored the precedent of Baker v Nelson and excluded evidence showing the universal nature of male/female marriage.

He couldnít, there is no such universal nature, marriage is specific to humans, and homosexuality appears in nature all the time across many species.

Any such argument would have been proven quickly to be wrong, the lawyers knew better than to go down that failure of a road.

The existence of God or gods is based upon opinion. Likewise the lack of existence is based upon opiinon.
No, if god exists, there is evidence of his existence.
It's quite possible, in fact likely, that there are fossils that exist we haven't found.
