What an ignorant joke,'the wrong side of history'!
In all of recorded history, every single culture has had marriage.
In all that time, not one SINGLE culture has embraced ss marriage from start to finish. It barely shows up, and quickly disappears. It NEVER has established itself and spread.
You can't blame a Christian, you can't blame the Republicans, you can't blame a single culture.
Do you understand how profound that is?
At this point, it's you who is on 'the wrong side of history'.
Snicker.
What an ignorant joke,'the wrong side of history'!
In all of recorded history, every single culture has killed or ostracized mutants.
In all that time, not one SINGLE culture has embraced mutants from start to finish. When they show up, they are killed. They ALWAYS are hated.

Every culture would hate hated you. Every culture EVER!

We distinguish human rights for a number of different classifications. SCOTUS has done so a number of times because marriage is the best birthplace of every member of society.
You claim a ss couple who is mutually procreative desolate deserves the same rights and protections? Do you understand how stupid and ridiculous that is?
Smile.
You don't have to be able to procreate in order to marry. Your whole argument is stupid and ridiculous, like you are.

You pointed it out to justify why you think itís okay that Gay Americans are not afforded equal marriage rights. Otherwise, why would you say it? That makes you a bigot, bigot. The rest of your post is just hysterical ramblings.
I think he clearly pointed out that you are an idiot in denial.

How can a duplicated half of a marriage equate to marriage.

The math clearly doesn't add up.

yea!!!

next week the state supream court will likely overturn prop hate.

a sad day for all you bigots who are clearly on the wrong side of history.

just look at all the prominent people coming out in favor of gay marriage lately.

and next year massachusetts will celebrate 10 years of gays getting hitched!!

while massachussetts now sports the lowest divorce rate in the nation.

ive yet to hear a cohearant arguement against gays getting all the rights that heterosexuals have.

Once again, you dig the hole deeper. Nothing you said changes the fact that killing an unborn child is murder, and a obedient Christian would never do it.
Christians get abortions all the time.
BTW, the buy bull teaches that human life begins with the first breath. There was no knowledge of conception back when it was written, stupid.

Many people do, but James Madison explains it quite well in Federalist#42. He clearly shows how one may have certain "privileges" in one State while not enjoying the same in another. The only requirement is that a Citizen of one State be granted the SAME privileges as the citizen's of said state are granted while visiting.
" It seems to be a construction scarcely avoidable, however, that those who come under the denomination of free inhabitants of a State, although not citizens of such State, are entitled, in every other State, to all the privileges of free citizens of the latter; that is, to greater privileges than they may be entitled to in their own State... " James Madison- Federalist#42
federalism should apply to expanding rights, not supressing them.

doma will go the way of DADT.extinct

bad shot bill, but then again, he was only trying to appeal to southern evengelicals who were sour on dole.

until the 90's.....the constittuion was generally used to EXPAND peoples rights, not take them away.

clinton knows he was wrong.

will rick santorum figure out that a constitutional amendment TAKING rights away is wrong?? I doubt it.

1. Of course it doesn't have to be. The law determined that faithfulness to a mate was unnecessary with no-fault divorce. Now we have horrendous consequences of domestic violence and child abuse. Not to mention a devastating drop in every area of the social health of children of divorce.
Now there is a silly and stupid attempt to dumb down marriage to a friendship of any gender, totally denying the part of children. Any sensible person would say the law will be two for two if that happens.
2. That would be like the law requiring sex or children or any other such silly demands.
Here is an analogy that exposes that idiocy;
The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples;
An apple tree bearing fruit.
An apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
An walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be a apple tree.
An walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.
Even funnier?
What's even funnier is that you think you came up with a good analogy!
Stupid monster, the ability to bear apples is part of the definition of an apple tree, in fact it's pretty much the definition.
The ability to bear children is not part of the definition of marriage.

It makes both if the above statements true. The only bigot here is u bigot.
So,I guess what you're saying is you'd be fine with a gay man marrying your daughter or a gay women marrying your son? LoL, Sorry but not the same! Not equality,don't be ridiculous! Bottom line,marriage equality is coming and you can't do anything to stop it,rightfully so! And it will do nothing to harm your marriage and it will do nothing to harm my marriage! And it will be of great benefit to the 10's of thousands of children being raised in same sex marriages and family's,Great isn't it!

Do you mean like the union of Mars and Venus, or the collision of Uranus and Uranus?

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning. You equate that to a loving act between two people?

Giving more power to the Federal Government is not "expanding right's".

There is no Constitutional Right to marriage.

The problem is, those whom are in favor of same sex marriage can comprehend that. The other thing they can't comprehend is the one can be in favor of same sex marriage while also understanding that there is no Constitutional mandate to accept it.

The Constitution isn't, nor was it ever designed to "grant right's". Read it sometime. It is nothing more than the architecture and structure to form a government. It is an outline of power's. It is a restrictive document on the Federal Government. It is a document which is designed to protect the States from infringement. Until this fabricated incorporation doctrine by the SCOTUS, the Bill of Right's was strictly a mandate for the Federal Government.

The States are sovereign.

Lied? Not at all... You just want to argue over linguistics. Another attempt to DISTRACT us from the ridiculousness of your comments.

And what part of "turn the other cheek" and "beat your swords into ploughshares, spears into prune hooks" and "love your neighbor as you love yourself" makes you think that there has EVER been a "justified war" or "justified capital punishment"? You are dead wrong, as always.

Interesting how you claim that evolution has determined that homosexuality is a defect, when "evolution" is the one who seems to have come up with us and continues to make us.

And you know nothing about what science has "virtually proven". You make such amateurish mistakes that you embarrass yourself when you wade into anything of substance.

And our very existence will come to an end by someone like you. You are NOBODY'S savior! You fan the flames of hate. You want homosexuals to disappear from the planet. Every single thing you say about us indicates that what I claim about you is TRUE.

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.
You know what I think? I think you have your head so far up your ass that you've become disoriented by the natural fermentation of the apples and walnuts you have ingested.

You don't know law. You don't know science. You don't know sociology. You don't know psychology. You don't know religion. You are horrible at analogies.

I'm surprised you can type on the computer. Maybe you just write your comments on a 3 X 5 index card in purple crayon and your wife types what you've written into your computer.

Also, stupid, even if what you said were true, it wouldn't matter. You are appealing to tradition, a logical fallacy.
