It has no bearing only any marriages license, unless you can provide proof otherwise.
A marriage license is a piece of paper.

A marriage is the reunion of two genders who consider the other more than themselves. Who unite in a complimentary blend.

You assert that an inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning behavior has "no bearing"?????????

You only expose not just a lack of understanding marriage, but your deprivation.

SS couples are half a marriage based on the facts I state.
Your post represents the degree of denial it takes to attempt imposing a impostor relationship on marriage.

Oh yes... I forgot... Your major distinctions... Venus and Mars... Your pathetic little poem is the biggest load I've come across in years. Opposite-gender relationships are so "unique" and "distinct" that only several billion people on the planet become involved in them each year. I had no idea they were so sacred.(sarcasm)
You say that you offer facts... You don't offer facts, you offer canned snippets that you're too stupid to realize should embarrass you.
You trot them out so regularly nobody even knows what they mean anymore. They're like a word that you repeat over and over again until it becomes a meaningless sound.
Once again,

Gay troll scoffing is not an rational response.

Can you show that ss couple equate to marriage at any of the levels I noted?

No?

That's why a ss couple will only ever be a mutually barren duplicate gendered half of marriage.

I took my first step long ago, and I learned that the homo says anything to defend his odd way of life. Maybe you should take the first step into reality and ask yourself why women were put on earth. You have failed in your role as a productive human being. Now, please tell me how what I am saying is irrational, bigotted and hatred of fear, it's a fact. Your cult has recently accomplished forcing this government to give you what you want not because your cult deserves the recognition by America, but because you begged and threatened law suits.

"idiotic scenarios"? "so foolish"? You're angry. SSM was considered an "idiotic scenario" not very long ago. What harm would a loving marriage of three consenting adult brothers cause you?
The bottom line is I support marriage equality (SSM, polygamy and incest marriage) and you do not. You call other types of marriage "idiotic scenarios". Who is the bigot here?
Why are you a hypocrite?
You ARE a sickopuppy!!! not only are you gay, but a creepy gay. Incest? go get some mental and medical help!!

First, you insinuate that your "facts" are "factual". While I don't have the exact phrases that compose your "From Out of My Rear End" poem, I am certain that I do not agree with your "facts".

Same-sex relationships are identical to opposite-sex relationships in every way except the make up of the genders. And no silly poem "From Your End" is going to convince me or anyone else otherwise.

Lesbian women - and all women - were put on this earth to be productive, happy, fulfilled, and to make the place better than when they entered it. For many, that fulfillment comes from their families, their careers, their churches, their social gatherings, their friends, their children, their spouses, and just about everything else that's positive on the planet.

Just like men.

They were not put on this earth to be forced into loveless marriages of convenience with men they can never be attracted to or love, simply to make insecure people like you feel better about themselves.

If you can prove I'm lying, go right ahead.

You have GOT to be kidding... These republicans knew full well that these events were taking place. It's not like they came from out of the blue.

If they felt at any time that they wished to be among the speakers, they would have reached out to the organizers and made an attempt--even if they felt as though they were being excluded.

No politician would EVER sit idly by and not attend such a momentous occasion unless they simply did not want to be a part of the program.

A powerful politician such as Boehner has the ability to do anything he wants in Washington. His office could have easily reached out and helped coordinate some kind of participation in this celebration. But he did not. None of them did.

The "we were invited too late to change our schedules" excuse holds NO water. If they had wanted to be there, they could have changed their schedules. They do it all the time based on whatever is being asked of them.

Bottom line--they didn't want to go. They thought the program would end up embarrassing them and the RNC's platform. So they just stayed home.

Not really. It has stayed pretty much the same for a very long time. Doesn't mean it can't change. But it means people will be wary of this change. Rightfully so. They are not "homophobes". They are not scared of gay people. They are just wary of this tremendous social change. The way to bring them around is not what most of you do here.
Same sex marriage probably won't hurt anyone much. But it is not vital either. Some people don't see the need. They are not bad people.
Exactly.

All the "dramatic changes" didn't change the union, male female, upon which marriage is based.
how are they not bad people for trying to deny their fellow citizens a basic civil right?
They're not, because their fellow citizens ALREADY have the same civil right that they do.

<quoted text>it is no larger of a social change that legalizing inter-racial marriages, and we certainly know to call those that were against that bigots, don't we?
Interracial marriage was legal in various part of the country, at various times. It also didn't fundamentally alter the understanding of marriage as a union of husband and wife, nor claim the husband or wife, was expendable.

http://www.questia.com/library/1G1-140744234/...

The marriage of John and Ellen Davis was one between a white woman and an African-American man, a Scottish immigrant and a native New Yorker, and two working class laborers. While one might assume that such relationships were rare in the nineteenth century, a close examination of United States Manuscript Census Records in New York City for 1850, 1860, and 1870 indicates that such interracial, cross-cultural marriages constituted five to seven percent of married couples living in predominantly black neighborhoods. The number of interracial marriages varied over the twenty year period under investigation but skyrocketed following the Civil War. Census records indicate that there were 29 interracial marriages in 1850, 19 in 1860, and 116 in 1870. The vast majority of such relationships occurred between black men and white women often between an African-American male born in the United States and a woman who had immigrated from Europe, most of whom were Irish, Scottish, or English.(2) While mixed-race couples in different regions and in different eras faced tremendous resistance, such couples were not uncommon in mid-nineteenth-century New York City. Interracial couples often married in black churches in New York, worked in the city, sent their children to local African schools, and successfully interacted with government institutions, including pension officials, local court representatives, and census takers.

I'm still waiting for you to give even a snippet of rational response instead of gay troll twirling.

Are you really using anal degradation to try to insult a heterosexual? Really?

<quoted text>not angry at all.. again, you are very bad at making assumptions.
then you just call SSM an idiotic assumption...are you angry? see how that works?
being homosexual has nothing to do with some silly religious cult mandate to marry three wives or people that want to marry their brothers for some silly-assed reason...
It also has nothing to do with marriage. Men and women, even those with self professed "homosexual" tendencies/attraction/orientat ion have always married under the same laws as everybody else. Marriage is still about men AND women.
being homosexual is a normal part of our species. to deny them the basic civil right of marriage to the gender they are naturally and normally attracted to is the issue here, not your idiotic scenarios, and yes, they are idiotic.
How is THAT not idiotic? So what it's "...a normal part of our species"? So is bisexuality. Are u advocating they be allowed to marry two people if they so choose? Being attracted to more than one person is a normal part of our species, so by that reasoning polygamy should be allowed too, not some silly rainbow cult or mandate that says a relationship,of two men, or women should be called marriage.

The fact that their invitations were last minute exposes bigotry all by itself.

But preceded by the illegal behavior of the ObamaNation with the IRS and Justice Dept. only confirm the division this president solicits.
