President Obama's description, "the love we commit to each other", is no more than a friendship. A description that fits numerous relationships that then must be defined as 'marriage'.
It is an attempt to dumb down marriage to a friendship so an imposter relationship can impose itself in a futile attempt to look normal. Ignorantly, it denies the reality that the closer a counterfeit gets to the real thing, the more it stands distinct.
Even more telling, it exposes the insecurity of a relationship that is unable to stand on it's own merits.
Even if a court tries to impose it's ruling on reality, even a child will always be able to tell the difference between marriage and gay couples. Especially if one couple is mom and dad.
Bravo ! "Applause". Excellent post.

Actually, stupid, straight people make up the majority of any group. you know that. but the largest percentages of anal sex performers are gay. Per capita. But you knew that, too. More fraud. More cons. More lies...
Bigfoot, my statement was that most people who have anal sex are straight. Are you claiming that statement is a lie? I didn't say anything about per capita. Though frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if it's pretty much the same.

You are on the wrong side of history, your hate will never be able to defeat what is right.
It didnít stop the slave from being freed, it didnít stop women from getting the vote, it wont stop us now.
You're the hater. You prefer to hate us, instead of understanding that we have enlightened opinions on this matter.

No, and that is as it should be. Men being off-limits to men, in marriage, and the corrollary. Even a fraud like you can argue against that, but it is useless.
So, bigfoot, you are against equal rights. That's really unAmerican!

Take it to the impeachment threads or stop whining that religion is off topic here because it isn't, you just say it is to avoid revealing your hypocrisy.

Well, if religion isn't off-topic, then neither is discussion about polygamy, or incest, correct ?

True, But how many true Gods? You seem to practice spitting your religion of the belief life started from the puddle of crud, you too have your gods. I know many gay people that have a belief of a higher power, why do u insult so many people?

Only the anti-gay crowd is calling for polygamy and marrying close relatives. They seem to have a fascination with it.
Fortunately, their numbers are dwindling.
Gee whiz, what with the way that you pro-gays call every group that doesn't support your cause "dwindling", it won't be long before all we have left are the gays, then we will become extinct.

Don't be stupid, YOU look it up, I already know the facts. Straight people know what actions to take. You go and waste your time, if it pleases you. Why would we go for a nasty old garbage chute, when we have the real, genuine thing ? Your tinfoil beanie is screwed on too tight.., and cross-threaded.
Most men using the "nasty old garbage chute" have the "real, genuine thing" an inch away. Why not ask them?

But it's not a valid argument, you worthless sack of crap.
Marriage is a legal contract. We should get equal protection under the law. You can't "desecrate" a legal contract. That's a religious concept. Let the church worry about such nonsense.

That's rich coming from a self-described "monster mutation".

You think our rights should depend on our genes. Well, should you be able to marry? After all, you have both sets. Pr should you be able to marry twice? Once for your female genes, and once for your male genes?
What do you think?

Yeah, Bill, Mike said that you were big on having statistics. I'll pass, on the propaganda...
Yes. Bill knows how many straight men are doing their wives and girlfriends up the butt at any given moment! And he will quote you the statistics loudly!

He found out from the rainbow handbook that more straights do butt sex than gays. This makes Bill very proud and happy! But Bill doesn't understand statistics.

So Bill refuses to accept the fact that most gay men do butt sex and most straight men do not. By a factor of about 2 to 1. This makes Bill mad at me.

YUK!YUK!YUK! Bill.

A 14 year old boy rapist should be beaten to death? You poor excuse for a human being! He could have been abused himself! Or he could be confused! You dirty little ingrate! No, he shouldn't be beaten to death. The death penalty is only warrented if a rapist rapes a minor, not a fully grown adult. You make me sick!
Confused? WTF would he think he was doing? Do you know what rape is, you moron?
There is never an excuse for rape. Sometimes killing a person can be justified, sometimes theft, but never rape.
