In EIGHT THOUSAND years of human history, not one SINGLE culture accepted ss couples as married from start to finish.
Common sense told billions of people and every single culture that ss couples do not equate to marriage. They could simply SEE the difference. They understood the unnaturalness of gay sex, a violation of nature. They were smart enough to know that a barren duplicate gendered couple was not marriage.
Right. They had no Constitution to get all snarled up in...
Theirs was a clearer time. Common sense ruled, not a document full of loopholes... Exploitable errors.

Fundie 101. Always refer to others that do not share your views as "angry".
Such a tired routine. Fundies are such hypocrites.
That sure is a smelly batch of horse hockey. That is an apt description of most of the tactics used by your side. Y'all call us (including, but not limited to):
"Haters"

"Traitors"
"Fascists"
"Socialists"
"Non Americans"
"Etc..."

Shocking!! I love it when fundamentalists always speak about how gays want their children. Yet there is not one person on the planet that has ever said, "yes I'm gay because I was recruited". It's so stupid. Yet I can find you 30 websites in a matter of moments, all created and run by fundamentalist Christian organizations, that will all still promote the idea that recruitment exists!! I can't imagine having a life built on a platform of lies. It would be like being in the closet again. Terrible. Fundamentalists are in their own closets. I feel sorry for them.
Let's see 20 of those websites...

Your obsession with a//holes is very creepy. Ever notice that it is only fundies like yourself talking about them all the time? Reaming? My, you sure to seem to know a lot about how ass sex works. The Lady Kirschmann doth protest too much.
You're a joke. You actually sound like you're trying to say that ass sex is a deeply complicated mystery.
And, I thought, that obsession with a/holes was the domain of ......your type.

Fact remains;
Historical context is the argument of fools!!! Always has been, always will be.
Now you just go to your corner and pout about the fact that just because something hasn't been done before, that that doesn't mean it shouldn't be done now!!!!!! Whether something was done in the past will always and forever be COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT!!!!!!!
Historical context is the use of the wisdom that we have gathered over the ages. Dismissing it is the only way that you can even attempt to validate your position. Boring...

"Whether something was done in the past will always and forever be COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT"... Uh huh....right...
Language, culture, art, medicine, etc....all irelevant......righty right.

Fairy tale time again!!
Feel free to present APA studies and demonstrate the fraudulency and expose where science has been distorted!! Get right on that. When you do, be sure and present all the numerous other studies that basically reach the same conclusion as the APAs!!!
I love that idiots like you actually think that anyone above a 6th grade education would believe that an organization as large and respected as the APA would risk their credibility in order to promote your mythical "gay agenda"!!!!! You are so f*cking stupid Greggie!!!! LOL!!!!
<quoted text>
Your obsession over anal sex is creepy. Secondly, medical doctors would never state that a sexual practice was "demeaning". This is a judgment only, and it's yours. It's as irrelevant as all your other made up bullshyt!!! And you will not find medical research that states that anal sex is inherently unhealthy or harmful. You lie. A lot.
<quoted text>
And yet none of the children raised in gay headed households will concur with that. And guess what, they know better than you. More irrelevant and unsupported judgment from the fantasy land of KiMare's head!!!
<quoted text>
No dear, worst case situations would be children being raised by lying, hypocritical bigots like yourself. Can't imagine how horrible that would be for a child.

Sadly, none of the hundreds of thousands of children being raised in gay headed households would concur. You lose again.
<quoted text>
We already are. But mindless slugs like yourself keep trying to prevent children from being given loving and supportive homes. You don't care about children at all. You're a despicable hypocrite. Nasty and vile to the core. Ugly.
<quoted text>
And yet none of the hundreds of thousands of children already raised by gay parents would agree with you. Know who else doesn't agree with you silly bitch?
American Academy of Pediatrics
American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
American Psychiatric Association
American Psychological Association
American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy
American Psychoanalytic Association
National Association of Social Workers
Child Welfare League of America
North American Council on Adoptable Children
Canadian Psychological Association
LOL!!!! Smile Greggie!! You've just been spanked. Again. But do rush back with any of the supposedly fraudulent studies you mention and dissect them for us!!! We'd love to watch the meltdown!!!!
My guess is instead, you will cowardly ignore doing so and revert back to one of your other nonsensical talking points!!!

right... zero bearing at all
I donít care if same sex marriage was embraced by other cultures in history or not
I donít care if slavery was embraced by other cultures in history
I donít care of women were regarded as second class citizens in history
I donít care if protestants were burned at the stake for their religion in history
That was then, this is now.. welcome to... today
Just because something was true before, does not mean it should be today.
Yesterdays truth is todays truth. Truth is immutable.

No past societies had their lawyers exploiting loopholes in their Constitutions. Common sense prevailed.

Truth doesnít change?
So you support slavery
You support the repression of women as second class citizens
You are a racist bigot?
You support burning protestants at the stake
All of those where truths
Truth doesnít change... are you volunteering to be burned first?
Slavery wasn't a truth.
The repression of women as second class citizens wasn't a truth.
A racist bigot isn't a truth.
Burning protestants at the stake wasn't a truth.
These were all acts, not truths. Any more than this post of yours....

Truths:
Slavery, or the forced service from another, was wrong.
Women aren't second class anything.
I'm a racist. I don't care if you call me one.
Burning protestants at the stake was as wrong as burning my kind, the witches.

These! These are truths. Your listed "truths" were, in fact, lies.
