And yet you show up here every day denying the existence of an institution that clearly exists and has been federally ruled upon, and lying about homosexuals in general. If denial and lies are harmful to so many according to you, why do you continue to engage in such harmful behaviors? Oh, that's right, you're a fundie. A hypocrite.

You think that concern is a mental disorder.
You aren't concerned. You're just bitter that society isn't buying into the lies that you and your ilk continue to try and peddle.

We know. Because you don't live in reality, but instead in your dream world.

I'm simply saying ss couples and marriage are not the same.
And yet again for the 100th time, no one has tried to say they are. What IS the same, are the marriages of both gays and straights. EXACTLY the same in every aspect of the law. your approval or recognition is completely irrelevant.

You have no counter for the distinctions I list, except to say that a court ruled against reality.
Okayyyy.
The only distinction you continue to counter with has something to do with sterility, which as any sterile straight person can tell you, is completely irrelevant.

The court ruling stands, whether you accept that reality or not.

You've lost jackass! Smile.

The real question is, why don't homosexuals have the self acceptance to establish their own relational identity and legitimate rights?
Why didn't women have the self acceptance to establish their own independent identities and voting rights?

Why didn't African-Americans have the self acceptance to establish their own independent identities and voting rights?

Why didn't interracial couples have the self acceptance to establish their own relational identity and legitimate rights?

You see, KiMerde, it's statements like yours that have people scratching their heads and saying "this idiot can't be serious; he has to be trolling for comments."

According to you, we're supposed to come up with some magical institution vaguely resembling, but not copying, marriage which everyone and the government will recognize, especially if they put on their rainbow glasses.

Marriage is marriage. You have it, and I have it. You can crap on my marriage all day long but it will never change the fact that I am legally married. It further frosts your cookies that hubby and I can, should we choose, find a rabbi and minister who will bless that marriage with a holy matrimony. When we do that, keep checking the mailbox for your invitation.

Now that the same sex marriage is legal, we need to start working on solving a bigger problem,

It is ridiculous that our society tolerates rape!
If convicted rapists were surgically castrated, they would not be likely to rape again. If men knew that if they rape anyone they could be caught and the punishment would be surgical castration, they may think twice about committing that crime.

That's a lie and everybody knows it, because everybody knows you only have the approval of the lowest common denominator and a SCROTUS that followed the political wind.

But you know that, right, Mikey?

It is a free country, like it or not

You can look down on their marriages just as they can look down on your marriage and it means absolutely nothing whatsoever

The only thing that is important is legally.

And they re legally married, whether you personally like it or not.

The way to make money off of you of course is the conspiracy theory propaganda, easy money.

was that a bad thing? I grew up in the Midwest and people built shelters for Nuclear war and for bad storms. Were all those people "Believers"? Don't atheist want to survive?
