You mean the slaughter of Christians in arenas deserved to go on?
No one screamed 'what about the children' just like you.
Do you even understand what you are defending?
Ho.
I just stated a truth, that Christianity helped to destroy Rome. Not saying what, if anything, should or shouldn't have been done about it.

Circular reasoning about flat (also a pun referring to your chest, and not your ass).

Limiting the number of husbands a woman has seems to me just as much an infringement as limiting the gender of whom that woman can marry.

Well, stupid, polygamy is a red herring. It's not the issue, the issue is gay marriage. Why not start a forum to talk about polygamy? Too dumb to know how to do that? That's my guess.
That would be about as far as you can get, in your pursuit of critical thinking skills...guesswork, blundering about, in the dark. Lost and clueless. Like when you thought you'd gotten the better of me, asking to name some of the books I'd made mention of, and i gave you about 50, or so, titles. And then you had to drop the subject, because you'd been made a fool of. And you knew...I mean, guessed it.

What, exactly, can you mean by that ? As if you haven't had me banned already, you think that you have something to report ? OMG, what a fool you are.
Uh-oh, if you have reported me, do you think that they might ban me ? Heavens to murgatroyd, that would hurt me, right in my heart, where I'm sensitive, and shit.....

It seems to me you agree with me, as the article does.

Does that still neutralize the barbarity of the Roman arena?

<quoted text>^^^That's untrue; Rose has posted this lie many times before.
Most same sex marriage supporters don't care about the truth and will post anything to 'win' the argument. If you care about truth, keep marriage male/female.
I believe the person who said you are divorced, not you.
You are a vile person, and I often find the "save marriage" folks are divorced.
And your "argument" in this post makes no sense. Even if I were the biggest lair on earth, that wouldn't be a good reason to deny US citizens basic, equal, human rights, you dumb b1tch.

sounds like you know a lot about that sort of stuff. good luck with that chum.
the reality is that judges have ruled in favor of striking down Prop 8 and DOMA is teetering on it's last lungfuls of air as we wait until March when the Supreme Court considers the cases.
your opinions indeed mean nothing in light of the writings of judges. you, in the end, are a mere internet stranger with no credibility, in stark contrast to that of seated judges.
Child, child, child.

Can a judge overrule reality? Commonsense?

You have no answer for two simple assertions;

1. The government has NO interest in protecting or supporting a friendship.

2. It is unconstitutional bias to selectively support friendships.

Moreover, you deny the most basic roots of marriage. A cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Snicker.

Censorship sucks, eh? But what does it say about the bias of the censors? It says they've lost the argument. They know it, we know it.

I guess certain opinions must stay unregistered. No problem.

I admit, I was mistaken.

You must have a huge chest on front to balance that ass hanging off the back.

However, your circular reasoning is still flat.

Same sex marriage is gender apartheid marriage; gender integration marriage is one man and one woman.
Love diversity; keep marriage male/female.
You stupid sow, apartheid is imposed. Two people of the same sex deciding to marry is no more "apartheid" than two members of the same race deciding to get married. Should people be forced to marry someone of a different race so we have integrated marriages?

Nobody is talking about getting rid of male/female marriages.

Do you understand what you are defending?
You, obviously, forget that it was a barbaric time in our history, and that ALL people were less civilized than we are now. Just tell me that you aren't trying to highlight the gays in this post ?

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.
But, silly child, the grownups ARE talking, even if we let a few little kiddies, like you, join in. Let the poofs make up contracts, if they wish. They are not to be allowed to call it a marriage, any more than being religious makes one a priest...
