Only because we have all failed to report all the abusive, harassing and insulting posts. The squeaky wheel gets the Topix grease sort of speak. If we do not report these abusive posts the trolls win and we lose. I would also suggest that no one defend themselves against the insults as it only encourages the trolls.

Indiana county clerk: Same-sex marriage applicants could face jail
http://www.breitbart.com/system/wire/upiUPI-2...

Same-sex couples seeking to marry could be jailed for submitting a marriage license application in Tippecanoe County, Ind., the county clerk warned.

Indiana's marriage license application has spaces designated for "male applicant" and "female applicant," and Tippecanoe County Clerk Crista Coffey noted only one man and one woman may seek marriage in the state.

"Applicants for marriage do sign their paperwork under penalty of perjury," Coffey said, adding two men or two women applying to marry could trigger the 1997 law.

Who appointed you rule maker? I am glad that gay people get real in your face, because the sick perverted society that you are a part of has to change and if it doesn't then we'll watch it die and be replaced by the society that our children are growing up in where they know they have gay friends, relatives and even parents and they think it is just fine that gay people are gay.

You white heterosexual KKKristan males no longer run America. We have taken it from you and we are evolving our Republic to include freedom for everyone and the fact that you can not mind your own business is all that is slowing us down. Soon you'll die, good, and you'll be replaced with three people who accept freedom for all, not just white heterosexual religious male homophobic males.

America belongs equally to us all. They days of you getting to make the rules have ended.

I just keep reporting them to abuse.

The laws are changing, but not fast enough. Our resident trolls show us that their inability to mind their own business retards social progress and justice. They want to keep things as they were as they grew up and a civilized society can not survive that. There is always change and people adapt, even the trolls who visit here to harass and insult. Although most of them will probably die of old age before that happens.

He doesn’t do that, have asked him many times, he makes a total lie of a statement of what you never said, and then refuses to reference what he is lying about what you said.

I think this forums is about dead, there is simply nothing left to discuss, we won, they lost, game over.

It because they have sad, pathetic little lives. This is the only thing they 'think' that makes them feel superior, childish bigoted name calling is the only thing that they can remember (from grade school) and it's the only thing they have to do besides TV. Most are too old to even get it up and if they could, the wifey says no because they are too fat, repulsive and alcoholic. Keep posting and reporting, you scare them to their very core...

Lying is not just a tactic for him, it seems to be his fundamental personality characteristic, his path through life.

LOL. I see. So they really weren't "pressured", they were simply worn down!!! If that gets you through the day, then you just keep telling yourself that!

Normal society doesn't label characteristics as sane or insane. Normal society knows that would be stupid. Only idiots like yourself think that homosexuality has some type of value placed on it.

"Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood" - Coretta Scott King
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coretta_Scott_Ki...
That's great information but how does it negate my argument that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would probably not have supported a form of marriage that violates God’s will?

The only thing that you managed to prove, at least to me, is that Coretta Scott King decided to abandon her Christian roots and adopt a moral relativist position, which Dr. Martin Luther King "could never accept."

Let's remember that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a devout American Baptist minister. According to the official website of the Southern Baptist Convention, which is the world's largest Baptist denomination with 16 million members as of 2012: "We affirm God's plan for marriage and sexual intimacy – one man, and one woman, for life. Homosexuality is not a ‘valid alternative lifestyle.’ The Bible condemns it as sin. It is not, however, unforgivable sin. The same redemption available to all sinners is available to homosexuals. They, too, may become new creations in Christ." Source: < http://www.sbc.net/aboutus/pssexuality.asp> ; ;

The fact that Dr. King was a Baptist minister, and American Baptists do not officially support same-sex marriage, provides compelling reason to believe this American hero would not have supported non-traditional marriage.

Furthermore in 2009, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which was founded and lead by Dr. King from 1957 to 1968, threatened to fire the former president of its Los Angeles division, Rev. Eric P. Lee, for advocating against California Proposition 8. Source:Steinhauer, New York Times July 10, 2009 < http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/11/us/11gay.ht ... ;
That action reveals SCLC’s stance on same-sex marriage.

Personally, I don't think Coretta King could have persuaded Dr. King to go against God's will because he was far too wise, morally convicted, and honorable.
