Silly boi, your own words betray you, as Chongos does to him. "New", in the face of your claim that there hasn't been one yet ? Pishtosh, old fruit, I've made many, it's just that the big words have confused your bumpkin ass. I am not marginalizing anyone, merely disputing the claim that a group that wishes to be included in a club, since this group lacks the proper credentials. It lacks the necessary components, and fails to meet the minimum criteria. There is nothing elitist in demanding a certain minimum standard be met. Can't you see that ? And I am not refusing to allow them to be gay, it's just that setting the bar is getting in their way. Much like disallowing illiterate children to claim that they've graduated.
Mike/Rock, now that you put it that way, so youíre not an uneducated, arrogant, self-righteous, alcoholic, bigot, hater seeking attention that you donít get in real life? Youíre just logically marginalizing and vilifying Gay Americans to expose their undeserved right to marry because they are hypocrites and just donít measure up. Got it. How could I have been so silly? I have to applaud your selflessness and willingness to share your unbiased worldly wisdom, insight and reason with wrenches like us. Iím sure if all Gay Americans would read your posts (understanding your compassionate concern for the rights of all) weíd just give up the fight for equal rights and accept our predetermined second-class (maybe even lower) status and be happy for that. After all, youíre okay with us being Gay and that should be enough.

1. Gender diversity vs duplication. Blending different genders creates something totally unique. The magnitute is described and the union of Mars and Venus. Combining Uranus and Uranus is redumbant.
2. Words describe reality. A deceptive description of reality is always harmful to everyone. Marriage at it's most basic essence is a cross cultural constraint of evolutionary mating behavior. Gay couples are a direct and absolute violation of the very basic purpose of evolution.
3. The closer a imposter relationship gets to the real thing, the more clear the counterfeit is exposed. That is harmful to gays. The very fact that they want to pretend they are the same as diverse genders exposes an inner fear of being a defect. Otherwise they would look for their own relational identity.
4. Look up the 'Cinderella Effect'. Read the largest, latest, most scientific study on all family types; The Regnerus Family Study.
Now, you prove what prevailing interest the government has in regulating and supporting friendships, and doing so selectively in regards to type and number of participants.
Smile.
Very interesting, it explains why there's so much reaction to the term,'gender segregation marriage'. Thanks for posting!

Someone said you are divorced. I believe them, not you.
"Someone said" = hearsay. I've told Rose many times, I've been married 25 years and never divorced. Why is she so intent on marriage denial?

Most same sex marriage supporters base their opinions on faulty logic, hearsay, antagonism toward conservatism and the feel good emotion of sympathy toward a mascot victim group. They don't care about truth, I cite Rose's post above as proof.

If you love truth and hate lies; keep marriage one man and one woman.

Should people be forced to marry someone of a different race? Same race = segregation; get it?
The only people writing about forcing marriage change are same sex marriage supporters. Traditional marriage is gender integration; same sex marriage is gender apartheid.

If you love diversity and hate segregation; keep marriage one man and one woman.

I find it interesting that so many sinners focus on what they think they understand and ignore what they can't explain in the Bible.
It's even more interesting to watch the passionate persistent push against something you say is fiction.

Because jerks like you try to impose that fiction on others. If you would just keep your nonsense to yourselves, I wouldn't care much.
I can explain anything in the Buy-bull...
It's a bunch of Bronze Age myth and superstition.
Next.
"Like you"???

Where have I ever tried to impose the Bible on you? You don't understand basic physiology and simple evolution, how in hell (pun) could you understand spiritual things???

You can't explain how it starts with life being created out of the ground, and began genderless.

You can't explain how it described radiation with an Alien and his space ship hovering.

You can't explain how it predicted in vitro pregnancy and recorded the virgin birth thousands of years before 1940 when the first 'virgin' birth by in vitro occurred.

I could go on and on...

Somehow 'jerks like me' cause you to have a hissy fit about something you don't believe in. Right.

Ho, Ho, Ho.

Son. I'm about to educate you. I have been banned 5 times. I had a post monkey named Laqueesha Jefferson claim that it should be "open season" on me, with no license required. I logged a complaint about it, and researched the laws on this phenomenon, and discovered that I had 3 years to press charges. Don't talk nonsense.
