and you're not playing games yourself? you're dilluting a relationship two consenting adult want to solemnize with vows and obtain those rights the GAO listed a few yrs back (totaling to just over 1300) that are extended to only legally married couples. you're the one trying to tell us that anything other than a male/female married relationship isn't worthy of those vows to one another. you're the one that's smirking at you own (lack) of with, chum, not us.
the issues at hand are regarding the legal contract between 2 consenting adults that wish to marry. stick to the topic. when you can rationally discuss with insulting people, then chime in. without the smartasz smirks and ridiculous comparisons. until then, let the grownups talk at the grown up table.
At the grown ups table? Are you joking? You aren't even at the grown ups table, little doggie, you shouldn't even sit there! And gays don't feel this solemnness, they don't even love themselves, how can they love others?

if no one plays with him, maybe he'll take his toys elsewhere.

I am interested in discussing marriage. This is a discussion forum. It won't work if you treat it like a kindergarten playground and refuse to discuss the topic to hide your bigotry. Tell me why you are against polyamory, don't just whine.
So, before I was so juvenilely interrupted, I was asking you why are you a hypocrite?
So now you are attacking people on both sides after your betrayal and folly has been exposed and you have become aware of it?

We know Rose don't we? I think in her ignorance she actually thought the Roman catholics were there at the time, and probably assumed in her ignorance they did wipe the romans out! And yes, the saxons were the ones who defeated the romans!

What do you find hilarious about gender segregation of marriage?

Until the 21st Century, all cultures had gender diversity marriage. Now we have gender apartheid marriage; that's not funny in the least.

I am not, it was not the Saxons that sacked Rome

Rome fell not long after becoming a Christian nation after the emperor Constantine converted ( I did not say it was the cause )

There was no "Roman Catholic Church" until long LONG after these events

Donít worry, as you screw up history I will be here to correct it for you.

Rome existed, but caesar and the other white robed emperors wrelm no longer existed. Rome itself lost its empire due to the saxons and was changed and then later converted to christianity. Why else do you think our nation is renouned for being Christian? Because the Roman catholics originated from Britain and also inhabited Christianity in their own nation! Still very stupid! Making up even more ideas then eh?

No Rome lost its empire to the Goths who sacked Rome, and Rome had been Christian empire for over 100 years when that happened. Rome had converted to Christianity after the conversation of Constantine.

Read just a little history, even childrenís books before you post, what they are telling you from the pulpit is made up crap.

Roman Catholics did exist until many hundreds of years later

Do you understand what you are defending?
So you would have preferred Europe be Islamic much sooner than it will be? Read about the Ottoman Empire for a taste of what is coming.

Do you know anything but gay twirl and bigotry about history?

But the bottom line is, you are excusing the slaughter of innocent people in horrific barbarity by equating it to a dissimilar situation that may or may not be horrific. Put simply, you are saying two wrongs make a right.

Wrong.

All I know is someone was talking about the fall and making a whole lot of incorrect statements about it.

Why it fell was an interesting discussion, as it is opinions, but someone was making blatantly incorrect statements as if they got their info from some cult Sunday school

maybe they'll read & educate themselves.

i doubt it, but at least it's there for those that prefer to educate themselves.

i love it when the proclaim just how it fell....and historical fact proves them wrong. typically those guys go off in a huff-n-puff, trying to protest that what is written, vetted and published is wrong and that they are the correct ones in the discussion, yet have nothing to substantiate their claims. LOL. makes me think of how a balloon sounds when it looses it's air. pffffffft.

have a great weekend, bigD
