Then we can discuss the glories of blueberry pie. It's about as relevant as your stupid Article V red herring.
Red herring tastes delicious over pasta.

Like that idiot who claims he thinks I'm a man, then tries to insult me by telling me I'm really well hung, you need to work on your insults.
Thanks Rosie, I'll take that under advisement.

Yes, with you any discussion of historical fact is a red herring.
You tend to call most everything you don't understand as such.
I don't understand? What does discussing Article V have to do with Prop 8? You want to rehash the ratification of the 14th Amendment, go right ahead. The rest of us realize that's all been settled DECADES ago.

Regnerus did not study children born or adopted into same-sex parent families, only those who seem to recollect one of their parents ever having a same-sex relationship.
Regnerus compared that group, most of which had experienced family dissolution, only to stable, married, opposite-sex families — i.e. he compared unstable to intact.
Regnerus ignored whether the children lived with or were raised by the parents who had a same-sex relationship.
Regnerus only identified these “gay” parents based on the recollection of the children, not based on how the parents actually identify or live their lives.
Most of the factors Regnerus analyzes were adult outcomes, not childhood outcomes, and could very well have had nothing to do with the relationships of the children’s parents.

Oh look, Dan wants to chime in and protect the equally irrelevant Rose.
I'm sorry that both Rose and you have such trouble accepting what the courts have said. I guess you don't like the DOMA ruling anymore huh?
YUK!YUK!YUK!

Dan thinks the court said you need to "get a grip Skippy"!

And he thinks they said "freedom to marry can easily be seen as a right"!

And "freedoms on how to live as long as they don't harm others were at the crux of the forming of our government"! Or such some silly sh!t.

TOO Funny!

But funny thing....you won't see me in here for the next few months like you.
And give this some thought....gays will have mine, Clint Eastwood, the President's and others support to marry despite your angst. Go crawl in the hole you emerged from loser...LOL!!!
Gays have my support too.

The only thing I don't like about that fact is that I'm on the same side as a hot headed dumbass like you.

The bottom line is, I support marriage equality, you do not.

Who but some loser punk like you would spit venom at a group of people like gays whom have nothing to do with you nor cause harm and are looking for a basic right to live their lives freely yet you just don't like it.
I'll bet my penny collection there's at least 12,904 things people don't like about you yet even I would protect your ability to live free in a free country.
You're a putz. Mind your own God damned business and leave gays alone idiot. Have a good week -
If someone disagrees with you they "need to get a life as well loser"?

Either list those 12,904 things people don't like about him, or fork over your silly penny collection tough guy!

<quoted text>Marriage equality, great thread. Say Frank do you also support 14 year olds in polygamist marriages? If not why
So speaks the great pedophile, who requires an explanation of why 14 year olds are OFF-LIMITS. If you have to ask, you belong in prison...

Everyone knows we're talking about consenting adults.

When you say you support same sex marriage do I stupidly ask if you support children marrying?

If you want to use children getting married as an argument against polygamy, others are free to use it as an argument against same sex marriage.

Hope that helps, dummy.

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?
