Ratings have nothing to do with journalistic ethics or credibility. Being "most watched" doesn't change the fact that Fox exists to promote far right propaganda, NOT facts and journalism.
What is stupid is the bigotry in thinking heterosexuals or straight couples are superior to gay couples. They are not.
Well, if we have to vote on that, YES, they are superior. They are fertile. Unlike the barren ones..

"Appealing to tradition" is a logical fallacy in which the moron, in this case you, basically claims that something is right because "That's the way it's always been".
Do you think god hates you?
If not, why would he have made such a serious error while creating you?
Just so he could have a few laughs?
LOL!

Look, this is a simple equal rights issue.
A man has the right to marry a woman, so a woman should have the same right.
A woman should have the same right a man does, the right to marry a woman.
Can you give me a reason that should not be the case?
Do you mean like the fact that man woman are designed to complement each other, and produce young? Man and woman have the same rights, to marry another, of the opposite gender, what don't you understand about that?

If people like the author of this piece want to voice an opposition to gay adoptions and gay parents, then they should feel free to do so.
However, let's not confuse the issue of marriage with child rearing.
The truth is that if society stopped "shaming" gays in general, then kids of same-sex parents would not experience it either. Also, kids of divorce are often left without male/female role models, and yet we continue to allow divorce to take place.
OMFG! So now, even the victims are wrong? Only you gays know the truth? Pshaw...

He was in the Coast Guard, the only thing good about Big D.

What bothers me the most about his rabid disrespect for spiritual people is his reference to God as a "playmate". Believe in God or not, no one except Big D considers God a playmate. And there is nothing constructive about his

Big D is a particularly nasty little piece of work from the dusty little sh!thole of Modesto hard by the worst part of the San Joaquin Valley.

Pardon my Modesto tangent, but every time I see a Big D post it reminds me of that nasty little dump.

And, imagine it...Most of the people in the world are spiritual, and believe in God, or Jehovah, or some sort of deity. D thinks that most of us are delusional. And D is the one that thinks that there are no rigged elections.

What about you, monster?
If our rights should depend on our genes, what about your rights?
You have both male and female genes.
Why would you marry?
KiMare wrote:
The only aspect is in number. That means marriage would then mean 'two people in a committed relationship'. Restricting marriage to only two for that reason is discriminatory. Again, it leaves your mother and father, and your family without distinction. I find that sad.
Do you find it sad that god screwed up so badly making you?
KiMare wrote:
I didn't reduce marriage to it's 'original definition', I reduced marriage to it's fundamental purpose. That is so important, social scientists assert that if procreation were not a product of mating behavior, marriage would not occur.
If up were down, I wouldn't need a bra.
BTW, monster, people who can't procreate, so it's a non issue.
KiMare wrote:
I have never denied that many other aspects are a part of marriage. However, love and companionship are a part of almost every relationship. They certainly don't need marriage to exist.
Sorry for being picky, but I see it as being accurate.
I noticed you avoided addressing the issue of 'equating'.
Perhaps it is because of my condition that I embrace engaging life in the union of both genders, instead of as one.
You are the union of both genders. Should you be allowed to marry? Or should you be allowed to marry one man and one woman? LOL!
KiMare wrote:
There is a vast difference that requires distinction. The degree is often described as the union of Mars and Venus.
At the most intimate level, there is clearly a design where male and female 'fit' together. In gay intimacy that union has to be manipulated to even be marginally safe.
The marriage union can even be seen as restoring us to our earliest roots, a genderless, simple life form.
Enjoyed the subtle humor at the end...
Smile.

We've never said that it invalidates a person, just said that SSC's are not equal to heterosexual couples, and ought not to have the same laws supporting it, as if they WERE equal. Reality is that the SSM'ers are seeking to gain legal validation of their broken relationships, as if they WERE the same as the regular couples. And, as per "having" their own children, some are using laboratory processes to "have" these children. More unnatural behavior, to lay claim to "equality".
You don't have to be able to spawn in order to marry, so that's a non issue.
And there is same sex sex in nature. That's the definition of natural, dummy.

It's good thing you don't have any kind of social life at all, since you can't tell a woman from a man. That could be embarrassing.

Honestly, if you want my opinion, they all stink because they report 24 hours a day 7 days a week. As such they run out of newsworthy stories and bulldoze us with absolute rubbish not worth lining a parakeet's cage.

"Rhode Island now 10th state to allow gay marriage"

And still, no plague of locusts.
Homophobes need to realize there isn't a rational argument against gay marriage.
