Statistics show that most gays suffered from sexual abuse as a child. The trauma caused a complex to develope and therefor the mindset became corrupt. In most cases it's a coping mechanism!
If you're finding your statistics on right wing whack-a-doodle sites like World Nut Daily, then you should know that those sites make up any and all statistics to suit their agenda, Cuntry Gril.

I'd be on my way to Toledo, Ohio for a quick trailer swap tonight, but a tragedy at work a month ago presents the opportunity for IRS seizure of assets, due to the fact that my boss, who was suffering from the rarest form of leukemia in the world, put a .380 to his head and got off the train at Willoughby. And I found our sally ports blockaded tonight. BTW, my boss was gay, and I loved him like a brother. Used to hang notes on his truck, and his back, "Gay man" and such. We had a great relationship, right up until he lost hope. No-one else at work had the guts to jest with him about it, and I will miss him. Thought I'd throw that one in, just to show that I don't hate gays for a second.
If anyone cares to look at it:

First, your response has NOTHING to do with the basic essence of marriage. It is what it is, and ss couples not only don't qualify, they are a defective failure of the very core goal of evolution!
Second, why in hell should the government do any such thing? There has been no problem with that aspect of marriage.
You apparently forgot your very own farmer analogy;
A farmer who produces.
A farmer who doesn't produce because of age, disability or choice.
VV who never produces claiming to be a farmer.
VV who buys farm produce and claims to be a farmer.
And sillier still?
VV demands to be called a farmer too because the government doesn't demand that farmers farm.
Oh, and the government still has no prevailing interest in selectively supporting friendships.
Bazinga!
If only you could read what you write through the eyes of those of us who use logic...

You are barking mad.

I'm guessing that it has to do with the fact that each day the media reports another statistic that shows increasing support for same-gender marriage. And it probably doesn't help that republican pundits and politicians are now coming out of the woodwork saying that they support same-gender marriage and would support a leader that supports us, as well.

The world is changing around you and you are powerless to do anything about it. It's driven a lot of folks insane, so you shouldn't feel so bad as you continue to lose your grip.

<quoted text>It's just plain WRONG!!! When you have same sex couples together its like trying to drive a vehicle with no wheels. It just doesn't work!!!!! You want scientific facts not religous, well here you go EVOLUTION, a man was not meant to mate with another man, and a woman was not meant to mate with another woman! That back door you have is for excremating! Nothing was intended to go IN only OUT! If everyone in the world was a homo humanity would seize and die! And when it comes to s.s couples adopting kids, well in all honesty I would rather see a child in a loving home than in an orphanage. But what do you think that does to a child to only have 2 dads or 2 moms? Not one of each how it is meant to be!
I have officially decided that you are simply here to stir the pot.

No one could be so ridiculous.

"Excremating"?!? I nearly fell out of my chair on that one.

1.) People are not baby machines, whose sole purpose in life is to have child after child after child.

2.) God put tingly nerves around our sex organs for a reason. It wasn't just so people could keep popping out kids. It is a way of expressing love. It's decent exercise. And it's not a bad reliever of stress.

3.) If you don't like it "up the jacksie (look it up)" then don't do it. But many people--men and women--find anal sex to be enjoyable. Plus, history is full of examples of anal sex being used as birth control.

4.) You seem to have no problem with single-parent households. Why would it matter if a child is raised in a same-sex household. Both households "deprive" a child of either a father or a mother. And there are no studies that have shown same-sex households result in disastrous outcomes. Same-sex households produce happy, functional, and productive children around the world. That's just the fact.

Hillarious VV, some of your best comedy!!!

Here is your 'logic';

1. The lap-dog media.

2. Politicians flip-flopping.

I'm impressed! And this in response to YOUR analogy!

George Orwell said the world was changing too. Oh, and he also said this,

"The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it."

Smirk.

PS You still have no counter to the basic essence of marriage, a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

1. Who is saying the only purpose of life is baby making? The issue is you making the stupid assertion that babies have nothing to do with marriage.

2. That sex organ is called a vagina. A sphincter muscle is as country girl asserted solely designed solely for excreting. Damn you are one scary social worker...

3. Now you are promoting an inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning behavior? Really???

4. Who said she has no problem with single parent households? Why do you need to constantly put words in people's mouths and ignore what they are saying? It smacks of denial and a defective argument...

As a 'social worker'(pun intended), you know that the devastating social healthy of a child in a single parent home is only exceeded by those in lesbian households.

You are a bully troll VV. An near senile old man just kicked your sphincter.

Smile.

Dear, your mind is going. I've responded to your "cross cultural constraint crapola" so many times that it's just not worth my effort to do so again.

And quoting George Orwell in this case is stupid. A bunch of former slave owners in the late 1800s could have said the same thing. Would they have been speaking the truth as they ranted and raved over the emancipation proclamation?

Just because someone said something doesn't make it true. You of all people should know that.
