What is profound is your idiocy. I straighten out a misunderstanding, on the part of one of your fellows, and you mock it. Hilarious. You'll try to mock anything, no matter how off-target your shots may be.

No I researched the numbers. You can too. Please do, if you are not too ignorant to accomplish that simple task.
But you'd rather shoot from the hip and call me stupid as a response. And then say your opinions are valid and mine are not.

They don't. He posts under another name, now. Don't know why. They should, though, for being off-topic.

What's a "gerbal" and why do you bring it up? What do "gerbals" have to do with marriage equality?
Gerbils are the subject of other forums, the ones for fun and joking, perhaps you are lost. This is a thread about the judge overturns the ban on SSM.
Polygamy is off topic but "gerbals" are not?
He was posting to Goebbels, The Reich Minister Of Enlightenment And Propaganda. Goebbels, gerbals, not much difference there.

To you the issue of marriage equality is nothing more than a joke. Frank to the LGBT family, its not funny.

<quoted text>If sexuality does not matter, then why should two men or two women be denied the same rights as a man and woman?
Look up "sexuality". Look up "gender". Examine the differences. See? Easy. They are not the same thing. You are confusing the former with the latter. Obfuscation again. Semantic hopscotch. Literary leapfrog. Identification issues. Detail dementia.

<quoted text>Why are you deflecting ? What does incest have to do with the subject of marriage? How will same sex marriage harm your marriage, life, life style or children?
You REALLY are confused. Marriage is an institution that is closed to siblings, and wrongly, too. They should have equality. Don't you agree? Where is their ability to enjoy the same rights as any other American? Answer that, if you can do so, without twisting. Brother and sister, or brother and brother, for that matter. Point blank question. Where is their marriage? Out in the field, getting soaked by the "You don't count" storm? Who says that they do not rate? YOU?

It would seem that this issue has been flip-flopping a lot.
"From the enactment of legislation in 1971 to replace gendered pronouns with gender-neutral pronouns, until 1977, California Civil Code § 4100 defined marriage as "a personal relation arising out of a civil contract, to which the consent of the parties capable of making that contract is necessary." This definition was uniformly interpreted as including only opposite-sex partners, but, because of worries that the language was unclear, Assembly Bill No. 607 was proposed and later passed to "prohibit persons of the same sex from entering lawful marriage." The act amended the Civil Code to define marriage as "a personal relation arising out of a civil contract between a man and a woman, to which the consent of the parties capable of making that contract is necessary."[17] Since 1994, this language is found in § 300 of the Family Code"
"City officials in San Francisco claimed that although the 2004 marriages were prohibited by state law, the state law was invalidated by the Equal Protection Clause. The mayor echoed this view, permitting the marriages because he believed the state law was unconstitutional. However, legislators and groups opposing same-sex marriages quickly reacted, filing a suit and requesting a court order to prevent the city from performing the ceremonies. Additionally, the California state agency that records marriages stated that altered forms, including any marriage licenses issued to same-sex couples, would not be registered. The legal validity of the marriages was tested in the courts, and the marriages were ultimately voided by the state Supreme Court."
"As of June 16, 2008, gay couples can get married in California.
The change in California marriage laws is due to the 5/15/08 California Supreme Court ruling that "the right to marry in California extends equally to all, gay and straight alike."
Source: Bob Egelko, "State's top court strikes down marriage ban"
From differing sources. Please, do not assume that I have not read up on the subject. It makes you look silly. It has not always been legal, hence, it was illegal, and is being bandied about. So, these rights were not always present for the gays, making my statement correct. These "rights" have been granted, then removed again. now, it is in flux.
You can take your argument up with the state of California that currently legally recognizes 18,000 same sex marriages. But I expect prop 8 will be overturned before you can get a hearing to challenge them, which will make your effort to have them not recognize those marriages moot.

But right now, they do,
