And I have no idea what the hell you're talking about,but I've noticed that pretty much sums up every off topic post you've made for the last 14 hours you've been on this thread. Maybe you and Randy shouldn't hit the sauce so hard during the day and you may make more sense posting. Have you ever thought about getting some psychological help for your obsession? Again who the hell is bill? LOL
Obviously, you've been here before, with another tag or 2. Been banned, have ya? What were some of your other tags, Bill?

And why canít we have personal nuclear weapons, after all nukes don't kill people, people kill people.
And if your marriage is so lame that you have to depend on the law to keep your partner with you, it would strengthen marriage in general if you were not married.
The idea of you having access to weapons is a frightening thing, indeed.

Well ain't that the proverbial pot calling the kettle black?

Ya know, your wheel chair will move if you put your hands down and roll the wheels. Or ask one of the aides to help you take a lovely stroll.

Step away from the keyboard and take a break from dropping a steaming turd on others.

SSM deserves less respect than does Polygamy. after all, Polygamy has been in existence for thousands of years and has more acceptance than does SSM, which has only existed for , maybe, 20 years at best... Less respectable than Polygamy.

I love this little dooshe. Refuses to give any respect to any other type of marriage, while demanding that we all stop being bigots and respect his type of marriage.

I donít, why do you?
I want to strengthen the nuclear family, and you do that by actually working on your relationship and your family, not by relying on laws to keep you together
You want the easy way, your wife forced to stay with you, regardless of how you treat one another, regardless of how unhappy and unhealthy it is for your children.
I want people to work on their relationships building strong families that donít rely on the crutch of law to keep them together but actually work together to build a strong family for themselves and their children.
Why do you want to weaken the nuclear family?
So, your corporate playbook tells you try and tell us that an "easy-out" will make everything stronger? Is that the corporate line?

You're a hater. And a hypocrite. And a bigot. Yuo should be showing us how you "accept" others. Show us how to "Love the one you're with". Show us some of that "diversity and tolerance". Instead, you show us the old "I'm the only one that matters" routine

Its clear that you don't support the strugle for equality among the LGBT community. You show that each and every day when you disrespect the marriage of the Gays and Lesbians who post here. Why Frank, why??
Why, we do it with the exact same gusto that you enjoy employing against Polygamists. Clear now? Examine your own bigoted take on Polygamy to understand us. There is no difference.

Oh, do you mean that when he clicked on "reply", he was assuming that it was you that he was responding to, instead of the poster that was using your name? Or, did you mean to advise yourself against assuming that it was you that he was responding to, when he clicked on "respond"? Or did you mean that the computer should not assume that it was you that Frank wasn't responding to, when he clicked on "respond"?

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children

It is from the Hebrew Bible. Back when God was vindictive. He calmed down a bit for the New Testament though.

So manipulating a contract to establish a counterfeit relationship is going to take ss couples from a horrible track record to the best?
Please don't make me hold my breath...

Yes... I do believe that establishing a legally binding contract will help same-gender relationships.
Were it not for marriage, people would just be hooking up left and right. You've even said so yourself (marriage is a constraint).
And despite no-fault divorces, I still maintain that divorce is emotionally and financially devastating. The negative aspects of divorce from a legal contract help keep couples intact.
Throw in the ceremony; where you stand before God and a group of witnesses--family and friends, and you've got the makings of an actual social structure that encourages couples to remain together.
Marriage will strengthen same-sex couple's relationships. And that can only be good for us and the community.
Marriage is a constraint primarily because of mutual children.

You not only deny that element, ss couple cannot even perform it.

Even more ridiculous is your assertion. History shows that not considering children has destroyed marital commitment.

Your denial knows no reality.
