She Voh....think about it. If sex between men and women didn't make babies, would the state have an interest in any adult consenting relationship? Would it matter to any society who married who? Would marriage as we know it even exist?
<quoted text>
Well then why not recognize, any and all adult intimate personal relationships as marriage. All can participate.
Inheritance and joint ownership of property along with tax filing - there are two things for you that are of interest to the state.

Um, yes. After you get done with the loonie laughter, I will point out that I, at least, put this to a real test, instead of relying on fictitious propaganda, found on internet sites. This shows that I am willing to entertain the notion that your side MIGHT be right, although in the face of reality, your lies do not hold up. Most Americans do NOT "suppor" SSM. Laugh at that.

You need to include the democrats and independents in the dumb and stupid category. All any of them have done is bicker with each other rather than work for the benefit of the country. All of 'em are spoiled little rich brats serving their own egos at our expense.
This is nothing new. They are going to continue, right up until the end.

I know it is nothing new. What boils my bladder content is when conservatives/republicans blame all of our problems on liberals/democrats and when liberals/democrats blame everything on conservatives/republicans. Each side claiming to have all the answers. Most of what they have to offer are little more than experiments that may or may not work in current times. I'd like to see a little more civil discourse, a little give & take, and a whole lot less red/orange faced shouting matches. Grow the fxck up will ya?

Legal matters such as those that can apply to all sorts of relationships, and the would have the same interest. Siblings can own property together, and may have inheritance issues or concerns, yet are not allowed to marry. Again remove the sexual aspect and what is left. What makes marriage a distinct relationship worthy of state recognition?

And thats what called a DUMB and STUPID political party. Up front this might look good but in the short the long term (one month from now) the behind the scenes costs will be insane.
Se Questers.

Yes. But you are a taxpayer supported schizophrenic. If many of your fellow schizoids can save taxpayer money by spending their time mumbling to themselves on the public streets, why do you feel yourself privy to the hard earned taxpayer money that is needed to stand the cost of supplying you with Government drugs that enable you to use your taxpayer funded computer to post annoying and inane remarks that have the purpose of being disruptive? Shouldn't hard earned taxpayer money be better used to further feather the nest of revolutionary Councils and other "pro increased California tax" advocates who now control the failed "Liberal" State of California?

Marriage contracts cover over 1000 legal rights. The state's interest involves sex least of all. The legal bond between siblings doesn't have a parallel that exists between two unrelated adults, unless they're married.

Marriage is good for society.
Marriage equality, great thread. Say Frank do you also support 14 year olds in polygamist marriages? If not why

Why does it matter if two men/women are married? Are they "living in sin"? Will there be accidental pregnancies? Please explain how we as a society survived into the 21st century with the quaint notion that marriage is a union of husband and wife? It's been said that marriage developed as a mean of dealing with the by products of the male female sexual union. Why is it relevant to society that two men/woman marry?

No. Do you?

The bottom line is- I support marriage equality for all committed consenting adults. And you do not.

I've pointed out the contractual benefits to the participants of marriage, repeatedly.

Please explain the harm that will come from allowing two men or two women to marry. Kindly avoid claims that you can't back up with real evidence. Cliches are not evidence. Bumper sticker slogans are not evidence. Show actual harm and/or proof of such harm. Making you feel ill isn't relevant, you can always avoid interaction with people you don't find appealing.

Is that right? I didn't realize that you spoke for the State.... how exciting for you. Perhaps you can explain why we permit non-reproductive couples to marry. Must be scarey to see your influence fading away.
I can;

The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples;
A apple tree bearing fruit.
A apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
A walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be a apple tree.
A walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.

Even funnier?

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!

Smile.

In addition to a pathetic analogy we've got an adult that doesn't recognise "a" and "an" when typing his simpleton responses.

Keep a close eye on the SKANKS running sgvCOG.
What an embarrassment each and every delegate is to the communities they serve.
I will bet the discussion on the beauty pageant selection will be more in depth than any discussion ever had about the possible misuse of public funds by Nick Conway.
