So, basically, what you are saying, is that you don't want to read a rational argument against SSM, um OK, don't read it. But it makes perfect sense, and you know it. So, snore away, while the adults deal with it.
It wasn't a rational argument against gay marriage. I read enough to know that. You don't have to eat the whole egg to know it's rotten.
There just isn't a rational argument against gay marriage. If you don't like the idea, don't marry someone of the same sex. Gay marriage doesn't harm anybody, and it's a simple equal rights issue.

Happy New Year.

Generation Y professionals entering the workforce are finding careers that once were gateways to high pay and upwardly mobile lives turning into detours and dead ends.

Merry Christmas too!

Try reading...
I did. You started out:
"Now, in order to help you understand the big old world in which you live, let me explain that the question of marriage is not about a civil right at all."
That's not right.
Civil rights are the only issue.
Bigfoot, your "argument" makes no sense.
"An appeal for equal treatment would certainly not lead a court to require that a small business enterprise be called a marriage just because two business partners prefer to think of their business that way."
That is so stupid. That has nothing to do with civil rights, as long as the laws apply equally to all citizens.
The rights and responsibilities of a marriage are defined, and they should apply equally to men and women.
Try again.

Learn that you can prattle on and on, yet not come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.

I repeat. There is no reason that incest marriage should not be allowed.
Or perhaps you have a reason it should not be allowed Mr. failed ad hominem? Please tell us what that is.

I support polygamy which of course includes polyandry. To assume polygamy only means polygyny is ignorant and bigoted.
And what's with the paranoia? Do I question your sincerity in supporting SSM? Why do you question mine in supporting group marriage?
I resent all your false accusations. I fully support marriage equality. Do you? It seems you do not. Tell us about it.
I can't believe you criticize me for not condemning non-gay marriage! I don't condemn any marriage gay or non-gay. Tell us which ones you condemn.
Are you really saying I should "condemn non-gay marriage"?
Your offense to my question was not my intent. However, I read your posts and I donít understand the inconsistency and Iím simply trying to understand your viewpoint. I understand you have a distain for hypocrisy and (for lack of a better word) you like to torment people who exhibit those tendencies however you also team up with ďRockĒ to attach people. This behavior makes me question your intent. Are you so convinced that in order to deserve Gay Marriage equality that Gay Americans have to support every form of marriage imaginable?

Torment is a good word. I like it.

So do you figure I'm tormenting that jackass "Big D" pretty good? With the Clinton impeachment schtick? He's hard to read.

Rock? Mr. Hudson? Oh! I get it! R. Hudson = Rock Hudson! The old actor. Good one! HA HA.

Whatever happened to that "jazzybird58" jackass? Anybody know?

That guy with the tin foil hat. Straight but calls other men "sugar nipples". Can't spell. Poor grammar.
No sense of humor.

Guess he's done "pissing" on me!

HAR!HAR!HAR! What a jackass!
