Let me break it down to two words:
Equal rights.
Bogus. Men have the same rights as women. Marriage is for 1 of each. Else, we'd better strike those labels outside of the bathrooms, denoting gender differences.

You may think that setting him up, complete with the putting of words into his mouth, enables you to squash his arguments, but it does not, as he has not said the words that you would dearly love for him to have said, when you attacked him for saying those words that he did not say....Get it?
Oh, and it's "license", not "lincence", or "incense" or whatever you were trying to say, when you pretended that he said something that he didn't say, even though his punctuation and grammar were way beyond yours...

We can't win a rigged game, no. Your failure to admit simple truths leaves us at an impasse.
Which simple truth is that?

That there are over 120,000 legally married same sex couples now in the US

In the millions worldwide?

Or that California legally recognizes same sex couples right now, some 18,000 of them? And other same sex couples are being denied equal rights?

That the desire, intent or ability to have children has never been a requirement for a marriage license?

Which simple truth?

I didnít, they keep bringing up procreation as an argument against same sex marriage and I just keep reminding them that has no place in this argument.

And thank you I agree, when you argue with a child and they canít stand up to what you are saying they go after you personally, or criticize spelling or typos or what have you... I agree, you cannot stand up to the argument

The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects insisted (screamed) that her sons are not responsible for the attack and said she did not see any aggression in the older brother, even when the FBI questioned him two years ago.
Begs the question of why the FBI needed to talk to him 2 years ago?

Unfortunately, you and your type have been allowed to prosper, this is why most Americans are dumber than a bag of rocks. Somewhere, sometime, someone lied to you and told you that you mattered. They didn't fight the apparent idiocy that you displaying. You should have been beaten about the face and neck, until you straightened up.

I base my opinion on logic.
Heterosexual couples are legally allowed to marry. They make whatever promises to one another in front of groups of people or only to one another. This is a "ceremony"; an act that in the eyes of the law means nothing.
Homosexual couples can do the same thing. We have "commitment ceremonies" or other public/private exchanges of promises. They also, legally, mean nothing.
Heterosexual couples have the extra benefits and protections of legal marriage. These benefits and protections allow them to do any number of things--take FMLA, receive spousal Medicare or Social Security benefits, obtain base housing in the military, inheritance protection; the list goes on.
Gay couples pay into the same systems that straight couples pay into. They get the benefits, we do not.
Even straight couples who enter into "sham marriages" are able to get these benefits.
Every accepted scientific, medical, and legal collective,(ABA, AMA, APA, NASW, etc.) is in support of same-sex marriage. They all recognize that same-sex partnerships, at their foundation, are equal to opposite-sex partnerships.
There is NO REASON why same-sex couples should be denied the exact same benefits and protections that legally married heterosexual couples have.
Key word here is "take".

Let's take a refreshing break from Big D's angry ranting and raving!
Here's a little anecdote I wrote on a thread about British English-
Xavier Breath learns English. by Frankie Rizzo
This is a story of an Englishman going to an American service station to get some new windshield wiper blades.
He fills his tank with petrol and asks the dopey looking attendant with a patch on his shirt that says "Xavier B" for some windscreen wipers.
Xavier replies "Golly! What the hell is that for?" The Englishman answers "To wipe the rain off the windscreen." Xavier says "Windscreen? It's a windshield you dumbass Limey,'Mercans invented the car so it's called whatever we say it's called".
The Englishman replied, look jackass, we invented the language! Not only that but we invented windscreen wipers and patented them in 1911 so they are called whatever we say they are called!"
Xavier replied. "Sorry sir! Shall I wash your windshield now?" The Englishman said. "What a dipsh!t."
Xavier filed hate crime charges and won a civil suit for a million dollar settlement and that is why he now sits on his dopey ass and posts nonsense all day and night instead of pumping gas. The Englishman lost his million dollar fortune to Xavier and now he pumps gas at Xavier's old job.
The End.

Medical and recreational marijuana may be legal in Colorado, but employers in the state can lawfully fire workers who test positive for the drug, even if it was used off duty, according to a court ruling Thursday.
The Colorado Court of Appeals found there is no employment protection for medical marijuana users in the state since the drug remains barred by the federal government.
I've been waiting for that to occur. I support the recreational use of marijuana, and have had several truck drivers revel in the legalization of it, and have told them that will be the result.

You haven't been honest. You have been insisting "they" have stated that procreation is a REQUIREMENT for marriage. No one has said that.

Glad to see I have finally shamed you into toning down that lie.

I agree that even childless families are good for society. But to argue that children have nothing to do with the government's interest in marriage is ridiculous. Did you cut the first day of freshman sociology or cultural anthropology?

Legally married opposite sex couple. They could be of "mixed orientation".

Nor with siblings?

It's not available to other adults in similar situations either.
<quoted text>
Why stop at couples? If marriage is simply a protection program, it's unfair to limit it to "couples". Plural marriages, adult siblings living together long term, etc., could also benefit from marriage protection.
On the money!
