What is the point then? If everyone has a "right" to have their personal intimate consenting sexual adult relationship called marriage by the state, why bother licensing it at all? Why does it matter who marries who, or doesn't marry who?
Well, apparently it matters to you straight people, because you seem to have a death-grip on it. You want to withhold rights and protections from same-gender couples.

If you want to start a movement to withdraw all rights and protections afforded through marriage, be my guest. I'm pretty sure you're not going to find much support.

Yeah, I see how it is. You use the word "fear" to describe our feelings, and then, denounce the same word, when used in conjunction with your own stance. Got it. I believe that I've already pointed out the double standard, but you do not recognize it, because you think that it's YOUR game, and we are somehow different. We've ALWAYS had the rights that you seek, but, since time began, your way of doing things has encountered resistance. Except, of course, for a few old timey cultures that no longer, technically, exist. Up until now, your desires have been loosely tolerated, but not approved of. NOW, you have infiltrated, usurped and bribed all of the properly placed people to garner the decision. And you get uptight with us traditionalists that want to preserve some of the ways that have lasted us this long, and resulted in our presence here, today. We, that it to say, I and others that think the same way that I do, do nor believe in the "mix-n-match" policy for marriage that you do. And you trivialize our feelings, while demanding that we respect your, as if they are somehow morally superior to ours. No, sir, I am not "fu**ing" (have to edit, you have privileges that I do not) with you, I am making my case the same way that you are. AND, I am not coming unglued at some words that have been used on the internet, as you did, although, you make it sound so nice and respectable, and logical. Passionate? You have shown yourself, repeatedly, to be sensitive, angry and the way that you justify "getting in peoples faces" makes me think that you might have a history of violence. Our rights have been accorded for our relationships that are in accordance with nature, not because we wanted to shack up with "Bucky" or "Victor". Marriage is a serious business, sir, not something to use for personal gain. Your relationships provide for no offspring, and are, therefore, sterile by nature. For this, you wish to receive the same benefits as a struggling couple, and are willing to disparage those same couples in order to make them seem frivolous. "Heterosexual marriage are shot all to hell", or some such thing that you said, using statistics of failed marriages to validate your claims.

Yes, it is MY game. It is the game of millions of gay and lesbian tax-paying, law-abiding citizens.

You think we've used the system to our advantage? Maybe... We've just taken a page out of the extremely thick notebook on how to defeat prejudice and discrimination.

I love how you call "marriage" a "serious business". That's about right... It's a business. It represents about $40,000,000,000 worth in business each year. That's only slightly more that you guys spend on divorces each year--$33,300,000,000

You guys have turned marriage into a three-ring circus. And you have the gall to think that we'll screw it up? Please!

And with regards to your "in accordance with nature" crap; where have you been? Have you not seen the volumes of data that clearly show SSSB throughout the animal kingdom?

You don't "own" the right to marriage. You want to, but you don't.

State after state and country after country have passed laws legalizing same-sex marriage.

Get ready for it to happen here.

It may not be this year. It may not be next year. But it will come.

And you "traditionalists" will find yourself in the waste bins of society, along with all of the other traditionalists. Remember the segregationists? Remember the Nazis? They fought on behalf of traditionalism too. Where are they now?

See, that's what I keep telling people... Some of you "haters" are in actuality very closeted, self-loathing gays. I mean, who else would enjoy seeing " a skirt wearing queer bend over and just take it"?

Ye got to admit it, they really know how to kill there own kind.

More than 70 people were killed in a wave of bombings in markets in Shi'ite neighborhoods across Baghdad on Monday in worsening sectarian violence in Iraq.

The only reason men in my family never went to jail is because they were all cops! NYPD. 5 uncles. They'd take me to all the good bars when I was about 15. Whores for my birthdays! Woo-Hooo! Speeding 90 MPH the wrong way on a one way lights and sirens blaring to get to the next bar. That's how it was in those days. No mad mothers etc. Drinking age in NY was 18, but a mature looking 15 year old could drink in most any bar.
I guess having 5 uncles with disgraced records ( thats why they all worked the polce impound/tow beat ) take you to gay bars for pink fun is something to brag about...

I suggest you take a moment and educate yourself by reading the Congressional Debates over the drafting of the 14th Amendment before you go spouting off this uneducated nonsense.
