Thanks for the link. Prior to reading your posts I just assumed that marriage automatically carried over from state to state, that one state could force aanother state to accept a marriage.
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...

Keep an eye on these kind of people, crooks they should be stood up against a wall after the 5 minute trial.

Former city police Chief Nate Harper will plead guilty to charges that he conspired to steal city police funds deposited into unauthorized police credit union accounts and failed to file federal tax returns from 2008 to 2011.

You may miss the days when divorce was more difficult, battered women ( or men ) stuck where they could not get out, molested children where they wife would actively turn her had the other way as she had no where else she could go other than to cover it up.
I donít
Our marriages are stronger today because of how easy divorce is.
there is a saying you may have heard of. "He that doeth evil hateth the light", that applies directly here.
Today marriages are more active, couples do things together to keep their marriages alive and strong and rely less on a piece of paper to keep it so.
I prefer my wife to be my wife because she wants to be my wife, not because some piece of paper makes her so. What is it that you are so afraid of? What is it that you want to do so desperately that you know it is too easy for your wife to divorce you for?
You may not be old enough to remember, but I can tell you, the good old days werenít all that good, and tomorrow is not as bad as it seems.( I should call Billy Joel and get permission to use that )
Let see, marriages are 'stronger' because they can be broken easier. Oh, and never mind the children...

Been married 36 years. Fallen in and out of love a number of times, but been committed the whole time. Good thing my wife stayed through the times she didn't want to.

Need hip boots for the BS level tonight...

Smirk.

Kimare is soooooo completely out of touch with mainstream Christianity. It's no wonder he didn't have a successful career in the United Church of Christ (UCC) as a pastor in Hawaii. The UCC, of course, has always been at the forefront of social activism. Kimare's beliefs, however, would set social issues back at least one century.
Had one of the largest UCC churches in HI, in a small outer island community.

Growing too, while most UCC churches are rapidly dying.

Are you serious? I simply pointed out the Constitution does not treat all citizens "equal" in all matters, the constitution has to interpreted. How the heck in the name of Francis Albert Sinatra, did u think I was "comparing the the rules regarding qualifying for POTUS to the rights of Gay Americans"?
<quoted text>
it amuses me how some rainbow flag wavers toss around the word "bigot" simply because one opposes the legal redefinition of marriage, that it is, pun intended", inconceivable. Heaven forbid, you realize you already do, as do I, possess the right to marry. You simply do not wish to exercise such a right in the same manner as everybody else.
<quoted text>
That's when you all start whining like little children. What will YOU chooches come up with next? Just admit it, you are weirded out by the fact that you were created by a sex act, coital intercourse, between a man and a woman, and that clouds YOUR judgement. In other words, the only one who is a bigot here is you!
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.

Yeah, I think more and more people are realizing there just isn't a rational argument against gay marriage.

Actually, they are, no different than any other American.

That u already have the right to marry, or that u were creared as a result if sex between a man and a woman?
That makes you a bigot, bigot. The rest of your post is just hysterical ramblings.
It makes both if the above statements true. The only bigot here is u bigot.

1. Didn't say 'restraint'. Social scientists say it is a constraint, you prove it's not.
2. No one said it had to be successful
3. There is no such thing as gay 'marriage'. The only result of saying there is, would be the redefinition of the word. Meaning that ss couples would still not really be married in the true sense of the word.
Smirk.
You think our rights should depend on our genes? Should you be allowed to marry, as you are a monster mutation?

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.
You can't blame a Christian, you can't blame the Republicans, you can't blame a single culture.

What good are you?
Do you think you should have been aborted?

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.

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.

With all your 'moral' indignation, you somehow missed admitting you lied about what you claimed I said. Kind of makes the rest of your rant suspect.
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.
