Yeah, people that force children to have sex with older men, the ones in the news you see all the time, and anyone that disagrees that they are Religious immoral degenerates is also an immoral degenerate.

Gay marriage disables people from reproduction. So the survival of the fittest wouldn't even work without it.
HEY stupid, reproduction is not a requirement in marriage.

Really? People who marry tend to have kids, although many gays tend to accept their marriages without having kids, rather than having children. If gay marriage isn't allowed, they will be made to have sex with women to have children.

1. Only if you are dismissive of the unrefuted answers.
2. So defensive (and avoiding the issue...)! The difference is between asking "do you think" (a question) and stating "why do you think" (an assertion). You lied. Like I said, why are these childish word games necessary for a legitimate cause?
...
Huh? What is your question again?

...3. Of course lots of gays have procreated. That's not what I said and you know it. Another act of deception. I said gay couples.
Not one single gay couple in ALL of human history has ever procreated....
That is unture.

A apple tree bearing fruit.
A apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
A walnut tree who never bears apples wanting to be a apple tree.
A 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!....
Why do you contend marraige has anything to do with offspring? It doesn't. Having children and getting married are two independent events!

4. You make a simpleton blunder by confusing 'blunder' and 'defect' with 'mutation'. Evolution thrives on mutation. However, a mutation that cannot perpetuate itself is a blunder/defect.
Remember when I schooled you about the fundamental goal of evolution (VIST)?
I = Inheritance: Genetic traits are inherited from parents and are passed on to offspring.
S = Selection: Organisms with traits that are favorable to their survival get to live and pass on their genes to the next generation.
It seems to me your post picture should be a buff ego with no head...
Snicker.
Now tell me who's playing word games, really?

Once again we have activist judges making up their own absurd interpretation to ignore the will of the people. The ban did not violate anyone's right it just protected the ability of straight couples to differentiate their marriage from non-traditional unions. Marriage doesn't mean much anymore as it is.It was originally very religious and now is very legal. It used to be a contract you did not break for every little problem you have in a marriage. The Gay community can now be as unhappy and join the high divorce rate.

Um, hellooooooooooooooo.... Prop 8 took away the right that gay couples had to marry. How can you say it didn't violate anyone's rights?

Marriage was NOT originally very religious. It's always been a legal contract.

Love is. Marriage is different.

...2. Of course rights are innate. However, certain rights are unique to select people/groups. You avoid answering the assertion; Why discriminate with only gays relationships instead of all relationships?

Why indeed?! You must be confused. Denying the basic human right of marriage to gay couples is the DISCRIMIANTION (duh!) that shouldn't be there.

"Legitimate right" ...What is an IL-legitimate right by the way?

5. You are not just culturally insensitive, you are culturally stupid. All major religions hold marriage sacred. Calling gay couples married is a sacrilege.
Slavery and intellectual repression have been rejected over and over through history. Gay couples being designated married has never been accepted or legal in any culture from start to finish in all of human history. Simply because they are viewed as a defective distinct relationship.
Marriage liscenses are government issued and have nothing to do with religious choice or affiliation. So why does your or my or anyone else's religious thoughts matter even one iota?

People would accept getting married to same sex partners if gay marriage is allowed, and accept not having children "as a part of life" and will usually hook up to their same sex "spouse". If it is not allowed then they won't stick to their same sex partner.
How many married gay couples are you friends with? Have you offered this theory to them for their thoughts?

Listen jackass. Of course when I talk of marriage equity I am not talking about for child molesters or degenerates no matter their preference in marriage or religion.
Some homosexuals have forced children to have sex with them too. Does that mean we shouldn't allow same sex marriage?
You're a bigot and a hypocrite.
No one gives a crap about your obsession, nothing currently in the courts is going to change anything about your obsession, and it has no bearing whatsoever about this topic.:)

You can cry and whine and scream and make every comparison you want, and it isnít worth a piece of crap.:)

You are illogical, no use for you. It will become a prison regulation only if it happens nationally, gay marriage isn't national yet.
Look dum dum, Brian_G was bleating on about the consequences of gay marriage for prisons. I asked him to provide evidence for forced marriages in prisons. He used Canada as an example.

Same sex marriage has been recognised, nationally, in Canada for the last 7 or 8 years.

In the last 7 or 8 years Canada's prisons have seen three, count 'em, three, same sex marriages. No outbreak of forced same sex marriages and the Canadian police haven't created laws about any of the gibberish you have mentioned.

You keep up the idiocy though. We'd be surprised if you didn't continue making dumb comments.
