That would mean you are not fond of yourself. That's depression. Hope you feel better soon.

the troubles in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, India, Pakistan, China, the economic collapses in Europe, Russia and the USA must not count....I guess real world facts do not interest you at all, huh????...
No, none of the silly sh!t matters. It's importance pales in comparison to the desperate need society has for gay marriage.

I don't believe you are for Mormons marrying more than one wife. Or me marrying my 3 sisters. Or a woman marrying her 2 brothers. Or a man marrying his adult daughter. All those scenarios deserve marriage equality too.

So clear it up for me, and I'll apologize. Do you fully support these versions of marriage? You haven't been clear. Help us out.

This is not a popularity or comedy contest and you ain't no prize yourself swizzlestick.

If you decide to get an argument instead of dopey ad hominem, Please present it. Meanwhile, while we're waiting I will continue to critique your dopey posts.

No, you are still not being clear at all. Do you fully support marriage equality, yes or no? Please be clear. All it takes is one word.

You haven't convinced me you support marriage equality. I think you are lying. Do you support me marrying my two adult daughters? Yes or no? Don't worry, I won't ask for an apology I know it's won't be forthcoming from an angry little twerp like yourself.

Admit you are not really for marriage equality for Mormons. Or incest.

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

If heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as SSM.

in fact, i have been crystal clear about it every single time you asked this same question. yes. i am for marriage equality.

why is it you have such a problem with such a simple answer?

Opponents of gay rights often warn that legalizing same-sex marriage would inexorably lead to legalizing polygamy. Maybe it would, and maybe it should.

Denying gay couples the right to marry violates state constitutional guarantees of equality.
Surely Mormons have the same rights to equal treatment under law—and of course, they have a substantial First Amendment claim to engage in multiple marriages according to the dictates of their faith.

You have a problem presenting any kind of argument and being truthful.

You lied. You do not support marriage equality. And you didn't prove me wrong. It's just a dishonest ruse. A straw man.

Let's finally cut through your bullsh!t. Do you support polygamy? Incest marriage? Yes or no? Easy!

No. That is not clear at all. The question requires a simple yes or no. Not "I have been crystal clear". That's not an answer.

Do you support me marrying my daughter and son? Both adults.

In the end,
Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.
A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.
<quoted text>
Gosh, I get lots of compliments for it on FB.
You still have no reasoned response.
I didn't expect it from a blonde lesbian.

Honey, that's not a reasoned response. It is simply denial.

What specifically is incorrect?

How does a ss couple match any one of those facts?

Still waiting...
