BTW Rose, if there were NO benefits to marriage, you wouldn't see homosexuals fighting for the "right" to marry. This most certainly is about benefits Rose, you aren't fighting for the use of a word you moron.
But it's perfectly OK for tax paying gays to supplement your benefits and privileges of being married! Sure benefits are part of gays wanting to have marriage equality but not the only reasons! Gays pay taxes and should be entitled to the very same benefits that you enjoy as a married heterosexual male,but as it stands now they aren't! Hopefully that will all change when DOMA falls and Prop 8 falls this coming June! Try again,you're simply wrong!

Welcome to the party clueless. Perhaps you should comprehend a persons position before you make an ass out of yourself.

Let me get you up to speed.

1) I am not in favor of benefits for marriage, I have made this clear many times. If ever there was an "equality" argument it is to be found in the tax laws regarding single vs marriage. Funny none of you take issue with that, you simply want your piece of the pie.

2)I have clearly statement many times as well, that Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional as the Federal Government lack's the enumerated power to regulate or define marriage.

3)And since the Federal Government lack's the enumerated power to regulate marriage and it is an issue left to the State (exactly what the lower court said when it tossed DOMA) said Federal Government including the Judiciary, lack the ability to toss Prop 8, for to do so would in fact be the Federal Government defining marriage.

Now crawl back under your rock.

And I will defend your rights to believe, and will even defend your children from being indoctrinated in a religon other than you prefer, as long as you grant me the same right and protect them from yours.
Time to let your children and Grand kids decide for themselves, you sound as controlling as those you are critical of.

You want a "cure" for gay people. Does that not mean that you want us eliminated from the planet?

It raises an ethical question. Should such s "cure" be utilized? If it could be determined in the womb, and, obviously this is speculative, its possible to correct "unusual", or , no offense intended, "abnormality", should it be done? With any "abnormality" not just "orientation"?

I am not sure the religious can be cured, the only thing we can do for the abnormal followers of religion is to try and reason with them through the distortion of their disease.

If the religious could be cured I would be all for that.

I do certainly feel sorry for them

it's the selfish "godless" republicans of the 80s that turned me away from being a republican. i couldn't stand how they treated "those people" they deemed beneath them. and still do to this day.
my pastor likes to say that jesus was a liberal - he believed in feeding and clothing the poor, healing the sick. and not charging anyone for those services - he did this freely and willingly to all those that asked or needed his help.
yea, "godless liberals". indeed.
Yup you're right, it should have read moral-less liberals. As in lacking morals.

Here's my thoughts on the matter... I'm not sure our scientist or medical professionals have the capability of changing genetic or epigenetic related issues while a fetus is developing.

At best, they may be able to (in the future) determine if a fetus is gay while in the womb.

And if so-called Christian zealots, who want homosexuals eliminated from the planet, get their way, they will simply decide to abort the "damaged", "broken", "defective", "abominable" (these are the words they use to describe us) fetus that women may be carrying.

They compare us to pedophiles, murderers, rapists, etc.

And if you think for one minute that they wouldn't abort a fetus that might genetically be prone to pedophilia, murder, or rape, then you don't understand these so-called Christian fanatics.

Their goal is total elimination of homosexual and transgender people from the face of the planet at ANY COST.

That is a disgusting concept.

To eliminate a group of people who are totally functional; who work and contribute to society; who are capable of full and happy lives--to eliminate such a group from the planet simply because you might have a spiritual belief that runs counter to a minute--a miniscule aspect of their lives, is a disgusting and deplorable act.

That is what Hitler attempted to do. And anyone who believes that eliminating homosexuals from the planet will improve the quality of mankind is simply following the directions of a maniacal mass-murderer.

I believe it's sometimes necessary for one Christian to point out to another Christian that they have strayed from Christ's teachings. This is not disdain for religion. In fact it's the very opposite.

When I hear so-called Christians talk about the elimination of gays from the planet, I don't see them following Christ's teachings at all.

He spoke of loving your neighbor as you love yourself. He spoke of living among one another without judgment. He also said, "Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
