You haven't been listening so far, what's changed?
All I've seen is a moronic troll trashing Ronald and his innocent dog's name and reputation.
Did you miss the post where I indicated that I was behaving like you, to demonstrate how idiotic some of your squawking was coming across? If you think I was behaving like a troll, look in the mirror. I was making a point. I'm sorry you were unable to see that.

By the way Frankie, I didn't see any additional points made about poly. I anxiously await any new discussion points you may have.

Sterility is to marriage as a tennis racket is to a bicycle. Both are loosely related, but not dependent on the other.
A union between heterosexual couples--married or unmarried--MAY result in offspring. There isn't a guarantee that when an opposite-gender couple gets together they will create children. They may decide for whatever reason that they don't want children.
This isn't a design conflict. It's a matter making a conscious decision.
These couples married one another for reasons OTHER than procreation.
Most same-gender couples want to marry for reasons OTHER than procreation. Keep in mind, this doesn't mean that a same-gender couple is incapable of adopting children, if that's something they wish to do.
You keep throwing an opposite-gender couple's ability to procreate into the argument.
But that's disingenuous. And you know it. You only keep using it because it's basically the only thing you've got.
You don't want to throw religion into this argument because you know you'll lose both the argument and the support of some of the others in this forum.
Same-gender couples fall in love, just like opposite-gender couples. They wish to tie their lives together, legally, emotionally, physically, etc.
And that's the crux of the Supreme Court's decision. There is no difference in the eyes of the law. You cannot treat one couple different than another couple simply because the gender composition isn't the same.
Stop using children to defend your obvious hatred and fear of homosexuality.
For whatever reason, you want homosexuality to disappear from the planet. And that's not going to happen.
It's time you stopped trying to live in a make-believe world where gays shouldn't exist. To continue to live in such a world is indicative of delusional thought processes.
Go get some help to deal with your obvious hatred and/or fear of homosexuality. You'll be a happier person and I know those of us who come to this room will be happier as well.
Brushing aside the gay twirl pontification,

I'm not stopping anyone from loving another person, or establishing a contract or rights.

I'm simply and accurately saying the ss couples do not equate to marriage. Either in make-up or result.

Clearly, the ruling by SCOTUS has been unable to adjudicate those differences.

Even the gay hordes in adamant denial have been unable to rectify those distinctions.

Who do I believe, you, or my eyes???

In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by trying to start arguments and upset people. They may do this by posting deliberately inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Interesting, the SCOTUS just told the citizens that they have no right to seek a redress of grievances against their political overlords.

Good work guys..

Even worse that a troll is a troll like you who impersonates other posters and their honeys.

I, on the other hand, am keeping all the facts on the table.

In so doing, I am doing the loving and courageous act of confronting denial.

The truth of this is evident by your inability to directly address my points.

It is further evidenced by the fact that a near senile, old jack ass with simple common sense has a bunch of girls in a hissy fit.

No, I'm not mad about anything. You seem to be. And still have not added any new "conversation" points. I though you were here to discuss something? It seems you are here for some other reason:

A little early to be hitting the bottle, don't you think? I mean, that's the ONLY explanation for your comment.

It's just more of your denial/delusions nonsense.

If you hadn't made such an ass of yourself over the years, I'd feel a little sympathy for you. But as it is, you're just a pathetic mess who can't deal the reality of the world you live in.

You have a partnership, you do not have a marriage. Even you admitted two key differences out of many. Oh, parents produce children. Ss couples mutually don't. Ever. And if children have a choice between the two, they choose parents. Smile.

Where did I say they were a requirement? Why would they need to be required when they are a natural result of mating behavior and the marriage union?
Clearly the idiot is you.
Smirk.
"Mating behavior" or as the rest of us call it "sexual intercourse" does not always result in children. Marriage unions do not always result in children. So, it is not a "natural result" of sexual intercourse; and certainly not a "natural result" of the marriage union.

See how simple that was?

I agree that is the difference between the Christian and the atheist. Maybe that's why Pol Pot killed so many people. Time to take his poster down.

No, I'm comparing marriage inequality to those things.
"Marriage inequality"? I thought the wife and husband were equally represented in the marriage.
And I'll go further and add heterosexism to that list.
Ahhhh the politics of sexual identity. Is there homosexism? Bisexism?
The institution of open and legal slavery has all but disappeared from the planet. Compare that to how prevalent slavery has been throughout time and in different cultures. The earliest indication of slavery was in 1760 BC.
"David P. Forsythe wrote:'The fact remained that at the beginning of the nineteenth century an estimated three-quarters of all people alive were trapped in bondage against their will either in some form of slavery or serfdom'".
However, in 1981 the country Mauritania abolished legal slavery--the last country on the planet to do so.
An institution that existed legally for nearly 4,000 years; maybe longer, came to an end.
Ohhhhhhhhhh Kay.......so that relates to marriage.....how?
Societies simply stopped tolerating it.
So society should stop tolerating men and women joining together in marriage? Stop recognizing it?
Societies around the globe have stopped tolerating marriage inequality as well. They're stopping heterosexist ideology as well.
Where do you get this stuff from? The Rainbow handbook of sexual identity politics? Do call your mom and dad, heterosexists?
Openly LGBT individuals are seeking and getting equal rights. The days of discrimination and prejudice are fading away.
Yesssss....and no. Part of what they're "getting" is a redefinition of marriage, that affects all of society.
In a few generations folks will look back at these times and say, "Why did our ancestors make such a big deal about being gay? It's just another characteristic like being blond or being tall or being Caucasian or being left-handed, etc."
But is it though? Or future generations may look back and say, "remember marriage"? Or "whatever happened to all those rainbow flags and bumper stickers"......"oh that was just a phase".....
