Marriage vows should be a matter of church approval while states and their subsidiary l'il governments should issue licenses recognizing contracts of union beyween signatory parties. Make kids, make noise, make a mess, make bliss or whoopee...do what you may with what you got permission to do it with and dont pizz off the neighbors or make them move.

You don't bother because like everything else you post it lacks any basis in reality.

I'm stating a simple fact, dummy.
The courts haven't said you have to be able to reproduce in order to marry.
You have serious issues with critical thinking don't you?

I guess everything has to be in picture form for you to comprehend it.

It doesn't matter.
The Supreme Court made the decision.

Loving v VA was about marriage, not slavery. You really should educate yourself, and not just copy/paste.
LOL @ you!
You're an idiot. Your response doesn't even slightly resemble a logical retort to my post.

Do need help functioning?

True, but they have said procreation is the reason marriage either exists, or that the compelling state interest. Here's one example.
http://www.cas.umt.edu/phil/faculty/walton/ba...
The institution of marriage as a union man and woman, uniquely involving the procreation and rearing of children within a family, is as old as the book of Genesis. Skinner V. Oklahoma ex rel. Williamson, 316 U.S. 535, 541, 62 S.Ct. 1110, 1113, 86 L.Ed. 1655, 1660 (1942), which invalidated Oklahoma's Habitual Criminal Sterilization Act on equal protection grounds, stated in part: "Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race." This historic institution manifestly is more deeply founded than the asserted contemporary concept of marriage and societal interests for which petitioners contend. The due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment is not a charter for restructuring it by judicial legislation.
You are wasting your time on Rose, unless like me you are simply entertaining yourself at her expense conversing with her is simply an exercise in futility.

First, your argument isn't with me, take it up with MSNBC.
Second, everyone knows you have no argument when you resurrect Hitler and make ridiculous assertions about what I believe (slander).
Third, any true believer knows that love and truth are inseparable in the Christian faith. Again, if you were a professional social worker, you would understand the impact of denial.
Fourth, leave marriage and children alone. Imposing an imposter relationship on marriage will not fix your unhappiness.
Smile.
Oh... So all of a sudden your vast knowledge of epigenetics comes from MSNBC? Good to know that you've really looked into this matter to a depth that you can knowledgeably discuss it.

But you're not interested in discussing it with any depth of knowledge, you just want to beat people over the head with something you heard about in passing.

Why would any of us expect any difference from you.

I compare you to Hitler because you both advocate the same thing. You both believe that purity of the human race is in part based on the elimination of homosexuals. Is this not true? If I'm mistaken, please "straighten" me out.(wink)

And we will not stop our pursuit of the rights and protections of legal marriage. We are within our rights as American citizens to pursue them.

You make a lame attack because I'm right, and you don't have the 'nads to admit it.
The courts have never said you have to be able to reproduce in order to marry.
And speaking of critical thinking, since you don't have to be able to reproduce in order to marry, the fact gay couples can't reproduce is a non issue when it comes to marriage.

We have tried to explain to your brain cell that "required" is not the same as "central purpose" or "compelling state interest."

You really should get your GED before you attempt to play lawyer.

Oh, and thank you for the laugh, crying about lame attacks when you feel the need to change my name every time you post to me. Who is the child?

Yes, because you clinging to Loving v Virginia was an attempt to toss the race card into play in regards to the founders.

I should have known that you wouldn't be able to comprehend the post.

If you want people to stop calling you an idiot, I suggest you stop acting like one.

So what? It's not the same as a lot of other things. I just said it wasn't required, and it's not.

You are an idiot. And if you want people to believe you are in favor of gay marriage, I suggest you stop making lame personal attacks at everyone in favor of it while picking out the pubes of those against it from between your teeth.

What other connection should I have made to your reference of Loving v Virginia and how the founders would have felt about the decision other than to make one with racism?

Since the issue in Loving v Virginia was RACE, and you want to know how the founders would feel about it, why wouldn't we look at how they felt about slavery which was also an issue of RACE?

I know you really have trouble with critical thinking Rose, but come on, even a 2 year old could have connected those dots.

Hey moron, there are about half a dozen members of the idiot club which I converse with, you are a charter member no doubt.

You and the other member's are treated like idiots, not because of your position on same sex marriage, but because you act like idiots. And there are members on both side of the issue, so again you fail.

Like I said Rose, if you want to stop being called an idiot, I suggest you stop acting like one.
