You homophobes can't have it both ways.
Straight people would also be able to marry someone of the same sex, so it would not be a special right.
Even if that were true, it's a non-issue. Straight people don't marry one of their own gender, aren't you paying attention?

That's doesn't make it a special right.
You homophobes always say gay people have equal rights because they can marry someone of the opposite sex.
Can't have it both ways!
And THAT'S as equal as it needs to be. Don't want it both ways.! man.! woman. All that is required for a healthy and legitimate marriage. No extras. No special deferments made, for looser types.

<quoted text>You see there you go again, lying. Please do show me the post where I stated that I am gay. Please show me where I brought up the subject, you did Frank. Now please tell why you need to degrade gay's and lesbans. Is it just a big joke?
I don't care if you're gay Jizzy, you shouldn't either. Just stop lying and stop stalking me CREEP.

P.S. What's a lesban? I have a good friend on these threads, she's a lesbian is that what you mean?

P.P.S. Why do you make gay possessive? Did you mean "gays"? You wrote "gay's" It's hard to understand you since you are only marginally literate. Hence my confusion if you are gay or not. I'm still not sure, and I still don't care.

P.P.S. Stop stalking me creep!

I am not a homophobe. You are more a homophobe than I.
I can see no compelling reasons not to allow SSM. Heterosexuals are not interested in a same sex marriage just as homosexuals are not interested in an opposite sex marriage. So it IS a special right. Just as opposite sex marriage is now.
I support SSM but there are legitimate arguments against it and to marginalize and disrespect fellow Americans like you do over their wariness of this huge social change is despicable. And to simply dismiss legitimate (although not compelling) arguments by claiming you haven't heard them is arrogant, dishonest and stupid.
You want this radical social change, the burden is on you, not us. We're fine as it is. Tell us why SSM should be allowed, don't insist we tell you why it shouldn't be allowed.
I doubt you understand all this being you are very angry and stupid. But others will.
Excellent post sir, thank you.

You say I can't count is why I support polygamy, so I sarcastically say you can't identify gender is why you support same sex marriage. It's a simple concept really. It went over your head as I expected. Being that you are stupid and all.

Just off the top of my head I'd say that fear is an uncomfortable reaction to a person, place, thing, idea, or action. The level of discomfort may vary depending on a person's own belief system or life experiences. A person's fear can be rated as anything between slightly anxious to immobilized by terror.
When I spoke of fear in the post you referenced I was talking about fear of gays and same-sex marriage.
You clearly are uncomfortable with opening up the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples. And I would label that discomfort that you feel as "fear".
You, being a "traditionalist", fear change.
But, I don't fear it, I just have the ability to recognize which change is beneficial, and which change is not.

Thought you said you favored gay marriage.
Did you slip up?
Your implication displays your shallowness. He has made a rational post, concerning the issue, and you act as if you think that he slipped up. He did not, you did. His sympathy does not handicap his ability to sum up the issue, and to confuse you. Say "Huh?" again.

Not equal.
Marriage is not a "right", it's a privilege. Men and women can all do the same things in America. We all have the same rights, enumerated in the Constitution. Marriage isn't mentioned. At all. It just isn't. It's not listed as a right. Look for it. It isn't there. Period. What MORE do you need to be told? IT'S NOT THERE!

Yes my arguments, such as this one you cannot rebut:

Poly marriage deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage. They are both marriage. Equal.

Many transgendered function just fine without adjustment.
Homosexuality is a defective failure of mating behavior, not only exposed by the failure to mutually procreate, but also by the violent violation of sexual design.
Unlike a transgendered, you are attempting to impose 'surgery' on society to fix your defect. An imposter relationship imposed on marriage, and a pretend duplicated half of parenting at the expense of children.
So much for no negative impact...

<quoted text>
So now you've shifted your losing argument to claiming stupidity...
I don't see anyone not knowing exactly what I am saying, OR having a logical retort if they disagree.
In fact, if you really are confused, please specify which facts I stated you don't understand?
Is it the duplicated half of parenting? Let me make it simple, just for you; God and nature gave every child one mother and one father. A ss couple can only give a child ONE of those, along with a pretend copy, while depriving the child of the other parental role.
As to your claim that I can only understand something is inherently harmful if I experience it, does that include shooting yourself?
Do you honestly believe 1/10th of the bullshit you say on here?
I mean seriously...
Smirk.
I agree with all of your posts. I rarely interfere with your battles, as you have matters well in hand, and usually staple you opponents to the wall, very nicely.
