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:

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???
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".....

True......but as the saying goes, "two go to bed, but three get up".
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.
Uhhhhhhh....huh. What is the natural result of colitis? Conception. Does it occur in envy single instance? Of course not, that doesn't mean human reproduction isn't sexual. High School biology 101/Sex Ed.

See how simple that was?

Pietro, if that moron Zoro pipes up, please tell him that prop 8 discriminated against polygamy too. The meathead doesn't believe me although it's such a simple concept. Thanks.

The judge-it rigging faerie is feverishly rigging the judge-its. Too funny. I bet he's going for 10 today.

Can anyone imagine what kind of loser would do that like it matters or something?
