Skin color had no conflict with the basic essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Duplicate gendered couples are not just an obvious distinction from diverse gendered couples, they are a direct defective conflict with the very basic purpose of evolution.

You have no argument for 'equal' rights. If you dumb down marriage to 'two people in a committed relationship', you immediately discriminate against other friendships and the number involved.

Smile.

So, there's never been an 80 year old rich codger marry a 20 year old blond knock-out?
There's never been an elderly couple marry, even though neither of them want or can have children?
There's never been a couple who has fallen in love and married with no intentions of having a child?
Why should these couples enjoy the rights and protections of marriage if same-gender couples can't?
Here it is again;

The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples?

An apple tree bearing fruit.
An apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
An walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be a apple tree.
An walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.

Even funnier?

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!

Snicker.

What is most interesting to me is how fast it is happening this time, as compared to history. They are falling so fast, and now that a majority of Americans are on the bandwagon in favor of freedom and equality, it will continue to accelerate.
It will still take some time, but historically this is very very fast.
But I have no doubts, love will defeat hate, right will defeat wrong, and justice will be done.

Because they meet the minimum requirements for a marriage. They have all of the required equipment.

The pope was trying to tell us that this was all the fault of the scheme that he and sarah pallin discovered together after viewing those videos that the Kock boys showed them those long nights in Roma. Even so they managed to discover that the food chain has been innoculated with fake estrogen. This goo strain has caused women to grow beards, become large and dishevelled and exhibit 'roid rage symptomatology. Men have shown signs of sports apathy, lost hair, grown breasts and large butts and guts. Together the two groups have become easy targets for take over by the Morons from Outer Space who have enjoyed this decay of wit and critical thinking as the Morons took over the government(s). The pope and palin were going to deliver a joint homily exposing the matter and to propose a mass world wide electronic marriage of gays to lesbians and other popular televised whoopy events to save the planet from those distractions that have kept the Morons from Outer Space in place. His Holness' special friend told all to the curia and you know the rest. There were four cruise liners with over 3, 245 people aboard each that were sailing to save the pope and sarah. These have each been stopped at sea and held for gahstly chemical de-programming and fake estrogen wipes and then returned to ports from which they did not disembark.

You could be NUTZ or you could be right. That is a 50/50 chance that scares me plenty. WHAT CAN WE DO? The TEAPARTY knows and is the only party that does know and will stop all such from happening. This is because of all the regulations and taxation of the upper classes. They are upper classes and we are lower classes; the support level is the lower floor in buildings as in life. We must support the upper classes and it is only right that we pay a bit more to keep them. I dont know about the cruise ship stuff but it sounds strange but also maybe true?

Yayyyyyy....marriage equality for all....no more bigotry and ignorance. Jody thanks you. Don't forget the marmalade skies. Those too will appear.

Exactly who would've thought we'd have two reality shows featuring plural marriage families. I heard the Brown family even supports marriage equality for same sex couples.
It will still take some time, but historically this is very very fast.
But I have no doubts, love will defeat hate, right will defeat wrong, and justice will be done.
And everyone will live happily ever after. No more hate, war, crime, all because of legal gay marriage.

The supreme court will decide that Gays have the same rights as the rest of us.I would bet everything I own on that and I don't even have a dog in the fight.If you don't agree then you don't know anything about constitutional law

No one is making that claim. But no one is making the claim that allowing same sex couples to marry will increase any of those things, either.

Well, other than the "happily ever after" thing. At least to the same extent that human couples can capture that ideal.

Can you have your mommy proofread, I really have no idea what you are trying to spit out, I'm sure it's vile and vulgar. If you want to rid the population of gay people, then first you would have to wipe out all straight people that produce them. What other great idea's do you have, I enjoy the laughs.

I have to agree with you. I moved to Glendora, California 34 years ago and Glendora was a different town then.

I feel things are and will get worse since our city council is allowing more apartments and town houses to be build.

This will bring more overcrowding and crime.
