Who would Daddy be ? The more "butch" of the 2 ?
And Mommy, likewise fashioned after the frailer of the 2 man-things ?
Either way, it's a sham...
You are very confused, aren't you?

If a same sex couple has kids, then the parents are both Moms or Dads, depending on gender. Geesh.

It's not that hard to understand.

And why must one parent be "frailer" than the other? Are there rules like that with heterosexual parents? Who decides?

Just because YOU don't have the ability to understand something, doesn't make it a "sham". It just means you have a lack of either understanding, or common sense.

And, really, since it doesn't affect you in any way, why worry about it? The gay couples and their kids, who are actually living their lives, aren't concerned.

If they aren't, you shouldn't be.

Only in your mind.

But, thankfully, you don't get to make decisions for other families and their children. Your opinion ceases to matter when you try to apply it to others.

Loving parents, well loved children, and stable families are NEVER out of "balance".

Why would you think they could be?

Is just because you don't have the personal experience to understand?

It's always easier to simply say "I don't know", than it is to create confusion in your own mind, and then try to apply it to people you have never met.

<quoted text>Jailhouse Rock was a mid fifties comedy movie when homosexuals were of little threat to society. But times have changed. Homosexual fake pride is on the offence and I refuse to be silent and see cartoons featuring a kid doing a "flying butt plyers on his dog and say nothing. Countering homosexual recruitment for as long as poo stinks and longer just in case rose peddles become a popular menu idem.
You blame the entire gay population for some cartoon that none of them have even seen?

What a demented idea.

Marriage is all about the children so why are the homosexuals trying to take benefits awaymnt from the children? That will be the effect of your sham marriages.
Your post doesn't make sense.

Do you believe that childless straight married couples are taking benefits away from the children of gay folks?

So you believe that ALL married couples are a drain on society? You certainly can't just mean that gay married taxpayers are a drain - that would be illogical.

Please explain this odd idea?

Don't most studies show that marriage provides stability to families, and that this stability is GOOD for society?

We aren't taking away anything from anyone.
We just want equal rights under the law and adopt children and live together as a happy same-sex couple.
You are taking away our right to keep the Constitution to read the way it has governed us since it originated. Even though amendments have been made it's obvious that there has been no interest by anyone including "homosexuals" to change the moral aspects of it to include homosexuals and their abnormal lifestyle.

Please explain how a homosexual marriages is "GOOD" for society !!
Gays are demanding the normal heterosexual society to accept homosexuals and their lifestyles married or not. Even if todays ruling swings to the favor of homosexuals, they will still be the odd man out and second class. It will just be another hurdle and obsticle to deal with in an abnormal society

You certainly don't comprehend it, nor do you even have an even basic understanding of how this process works.
Impeachment only happens in ONE place in regards to the President- the HOUSE. No where else, that's it. The accused is either Impeached or they are Not. Once impeached it cannot fail, it is a done deal, you are forever more impeached.
Then we move to trial, where the Senate takes over. In the Senate you are either Convicted or Acquitted. It doesn't matter which the Senate chooses, you are still impeached.
Get a clue you moron.
Im done with that, if you donít know, you donít, and I canít help you.

I wish it had been successful though, I personally think we would live in a better America today if it had.

"Clinton's impeachment was a success and it failed".

Marriage is good for society because it provides stability.

The bottom line is there is no harm in allowing same sex marriage. The few valid arguments against it are weak and insignificant especially when you consider the small percentage of the population involved.

Besides all that stuff, weddings are fun! The more I get invited to the better.

Loosen up Bruno! Don't be a dope.

This will or could end in a stalemate, until more states allow gay marriage, then it will reAddressed.

Of course this will give those gay bashers more time to gather their thing and move away.

If homosexuals are allowed to legally marry and be accepted in society, they will "come out of the closet" and not have to marry straights in order to be respected.

Yes a great success. If it wasn't, it wouldn't have gone to the Senate.

But you know this by now. You suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, you cannot be wrong even when you and everyone else knows you are. It's a real bitch, incurable they say.

But fun for me!

Willard Mitt Romney, thou shalt not bear false witness. Well that was broken so many time by Willard that he has a pass given to him by the church to continue in the name of LDS.

Willard Mitt ROMNEY, because he believed that a man should earn his own way in life, AND STEAL THE REST.

Perhaps you had a successful degree that you didnít actually achieve?:)
