Just because Obama claims he has "evolved" doesn't mean the rest of the feds have. Obama gets credit for "evolving" (lip service) and the rest of the fed doesn't evolve. He smirks and considers it Win/Win. He gets praise from the LGBT. He smirks again and suggests republicans are homophobes.

See, there you go again, being facetious... Of course it is a scam. Pretending to be a valid couple, without the proper components, is pretense.
We were not talking about marriage, we were talking about "gay" marriage, which is not marriage at all. It is the coupling of a same sex couple which is bogus. The parts are not meant to go where they are being put, in a gay marriage.
Rock, itís none of your business what I do with my parts.

Republicans might try looking in the mirror and do some serious self-examination.

Why does the majority of the country believe the GOP has lost touch and doesn't truly represent them?

Judge Swami has spoken

Not only is homosexual marriage a farce but sex between two or more of the same gender is impossible. You may copulate maybe but not have sex. Just like pleasuring by appliance or any other masturbation is not sex. Recent dictionaries have misrepresented that wonderful gift of nature. That is one more example of chalanges to natural law that is killing humanity.

But wait till the voters foot the bill for the benefit packages for dependents in homosexual marriages. Better hope Obama care makes the question of benefits a non issue.

I think Clinton was the one that received the lip service.

You do realize that thereís more to marriage than sex, donít you? I have no interest in changing any existing ceremony. As an American I deserve the rights and privileges marriage includes regardless of what you and haters like you think.

I think you do too.

But that means others wanting to marry "regardless of what the haters think" should also be allowed. Like polygamists and incestuous marriages. That's equality to me, how about you?

That was the question I was going to pose a few days ago, the polygamy angle. The SSM crowd wants to allow themselves into a fold that they bar others from, and they cannot explain that away. As the government has decided that polygamy is illegal, they face the ugly elephant in the room re governmental legislation. If they wish for TRUE equality, then they have to allow for polygamists to enjoy the same freedom to choose their mates that they themselves claim is their "right". All they are doing is exploiting a loophole, to enjoy a "freedom" that was simply unheard of, in the time of the Framers.
And, if we are to address coupling at all, we know that perfect partnership requires some level of difference. Sexual intimacy between a man and a woman is the normal method of male/female bonding (emotionally and physically) because it corresponds to the design of our bodies and because it is the normal means by which offspring are created, and bonding is what is at the heart of marriage. The argument that the parts "fit" is as insensible as saying that is perfectly OK to stick staples into electrical outlets, simply because "the parts fit". The parts may "fit", but it is inadvisable. The argument that homosexual behavior exist in nature hold no validity, because killing also exist in nature, and rape, and these are not accepted, either. And polygamy, also, can be found in nature, also a "no-no", so the argument that nature validates homosexual behavior is invalid.
Equality can only be served if polygamy is allowed. Where is the equality ? Missing, I think, replaced by the aforementioned "selective elitism" that is what passes today.
Right. Equality is equality. If you exclude anyone, it's not equality. It's a simple concept really.

P.S. Mona Lott hates polygamists! He's sure to be piping up with his dopey bigoted nonsense soon as he reads this. Big Fun!

I disagree.

Polygamy by it's very nature is a separate entity.

It's inclusion into the aspect of gay marriage is merely a weak ploy which attempts deflection.

If we're to speak of natural unions in the human world you then have to apply aspects such as love & attraction and both of those elements exist in gay marriage.

The idea of linking killing to gay marriage is absurd by the way. There is no connection. Given heterosexual couplings are also inherently natural as well you in turn link that to killing also moron.

As far as the Founding Fathers they introduced a form of government based on inherent freedoms. In their time slavery was practiced as well but because we continue their format we as a country are evolving into what they intended which explains why women can vote, there are no slaves and Asians can own land. Gay marriage is merely a step in the right direction if we're to practice what was introduced by them.
