No Rose, it's nothing like Jim Crow Laws. Homosexuals are allowed to do everything a heterosexual can do. They can eat at the same tables, drink from the same fountains, they can even partake and marriage following the same laws as everyone else.
Dodge. You claim that marriage laws treat people equally because everybody can marry someone of the opposite sex. THAT'S like claiming Jim Crow Laws treated everyone equally because everyone could sit in the section assigned to their race.

I don't make my argument for gay marriage based on sexual orientation. I make it based on gender. A woman has the right to marry a man, a man should have that same right. A man has the right to marry a woman, a woman should have that same right.

The only one being laughed at here is you Rose. You are ignorant as a rock.
Since you can't counter my argument, you dodge, then make a lame jab at me.
That's why I laugh at you.

Nobody has the right to marry the same sex. Everybody has one right only, and that is the right to marry the opposite sex.

The Judge no matter what had no right to overturn the ban without the say so of other people no matter whether it should be based on the state or the country. He flouted the constitution, just like Obama does.

Marriage has already been defined.
It is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Gay couples are a obviously false imposter relationship.
It would be like trying to put a bent rod in a straight hole. Everyone can see it isn't the same.

In other words, you are defenseless in the face of reality.

You make my point and yourself a HO. What a 'talent'!
How does your ad homoan attack on me have ANY relation to the basic essence of marriage?

Smirk.
It was dealing with the issue: marriage rights!
So, I asked:
Should your rights depend on your genes?
Both in your case, and in general.
Should our rights depend on our genes?
It seems you think our rights should depend on our genes.
So, it's logical to ask:
Should you be allowed to marry twice because you have both sets?
Or should you not be allowed to marry at all because you have both sets?
LOLSER!

Marriage is based on the constitution, and the constitution is based on various amendments and rights, which are in themselves international. You've lost. I'm Orangelion by the way.

You poor little child. Homosexuality is sinful, and vile. It is not natural. You fell in love with your boys boner and just dated who you liked, not who you wanted to see fit as someone who you will love and marry. You poor child. So innocent and yet so evil.
Stupid, there is same sex sex in nature, that is the definition of natural. There is no such thing as sin.

That's like saying everybody had the right to marry someone of the same race, so we didn't need Loving v VA.

Since the "opposite sex" is not the same for men and women, men and women don't have equal rights when it comes to marriage.
Why are you against equal rights?
Oh, yeah, you're a fundie.

Post # 172430. You said this: "..You know I'm black, I said so, and posted my pic.". Then, in this post, you said :"..never have said I've put a pic of my face up..". I ask you to explain what this means...It would seem that making contradictory claims is not
considered to be lying, in your neck of the woods....
LOL! Are you REALLY this stupid? Well, every time I think, "Nobody can be THAT stupid!", I'm proven wrong.
The pic I have up is my pic, yet it's not a pic of my face. Duh, moron.

So, why isn't your face up now? You don't have the guts?

The ignorance is to use a respectable ceremony to claim respectability in an unnatural union. Simple. Marriage has always been a rite to join man and woman,
Appealing to tradition, a logical fallacy.
Next.
R Hudson wrote:
it is clearly spoken in the ceremony, you know the bit about "Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband", and then the corollary "Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife" ? Or do you choose to ignore the whole ritual, except for the part where a title is wrongfully bestowed, through the use of legal chicanery ?
Bigfoot, people can have any type of marriage ritual they want to, say whatever the like, or no have ritual at all. Marriage is a legal contract.

We all pay taxes to make this country run smoothly, and then we get this idiocracy taking over, in order to upset the whole applecart, in order to satisfy 10% of the population. 90% of us don't want our money wasted of this trash, but 10% want it to happen, so our majority is now being forced to pay for something we don't want. Thanks a lot for seeing my money go to waste. Just because of a loophole.
Boo hoo.

Sorry stupid, the Constitution grants all people in the US equal rights. Even members of minorities. If you hate what America stands for so much, why not move? I hear Iran is rather homophobic. You'd be in heaven there.

You'll now be asked to explain how union contracts, which involve unions, are of any concern to me, who is neither in a union, nor working for a union company ?
Please, go ahead and try to make sense of this ? Explain it, if you can...
You are a parasite. You take advantage of the contracts the unions negotiate, these contracts don't just affect union companies, but you don't join a union and pay dues. Leach. Oh, no wait, leaches have some value.
