Hey dumdum, you're the one that brought "natural" and "only" as qualifiers. WTF is wrong with you? Short attention span?
Procreation isn't limited to heterosexual couples. Homosexuals have been producing offspring for eons.
Since you brought up demeaning again in reference to anal sex it has reminded me of a statement you made previously and were unable to buttress when I asked you about it. What is it that is demeaning about lesbian sex? For that matter, what is it about anal sex that is demeaning? The acts carried on by gay men and lesbian women aren't unique to them. Heterosexual couples engage in oral and anal sex with great frequency. Are they demeaning for them? Why? B
ack up your statements with a little evidence. I'll wait patiently for you to do so. Try to do so without any of your usual silly crap about gay twirl or ad homoan attacks. Those are quite childish remarks anyway. Oh, and they're insults as well as ad hominem attacks. You seem to suffer quit a bit of the ol' pot calling the kettle black routine.

Don't you think it would be fair of you to say the same thing to rose-no-ho? Her childish remarks about abortion to Kimare are easily comparable in level, not to mention irrelevant to the thread.

The flaw in these arguments is the use of modern sexual identity politics labels, "gay", "straight", "hetero", "homo", etc. The bottom line is sex between men and women makes babies. Marriage serves as the means by which the sexes are joined together, and do what cones naturally, have sex, and make babies. That's what virtually all human societies have organized themselves around. SSM is really a contradiction in terms. If it were such a compelling need for it among human societies why is there no deep seated cross cultural cross time historic ssm, male or female, structure? What is the urgent need for it now?
The "urgent need" is financial gain.

Did the right thing? They rewrote the law. When did the judiciary acquire the power to draft legislation?
When they learned that Americans will stand by, for anything. They have been defiling the Constitution for a long time, and chipping away at the separation of powers for as long as the document has existed. Slowly, we are being turned into a clone of the Third Reich.

Why is there a need for it now? Because there is. We've arrived to a time when we're civilised enough to recognise that homosexuals aren't mentally ill deviants in need of treatment. There are throw backs in every society, but they're a dying breed. Homosexuals are just people, like you and I. We've matured as a species to the point where we have learned that a lot of what was believed 100 years ago simply isn't true. And what was commonly accepted truth 500 years is hogwash. Even more so for the "truth" of 1000 years ago. I could go further back in time, but hopefully you understand what I mean. Sure we've got cultures that still see women as second class citizens - they're missing out on the full potential of 1/2 of their population (if not more). We've got past the notion that blacks are inferior beings. Now it is time to get past the notion that gays are inferior beings.
This brings us back to your question, why should gays marry? This gets into territory that irks AKpilot and I understand his point. However, we're where we are and marriage takes care of so much more than procreation. More than 1000 rights come with it. National recognition of marriage for gay couples brings those rights to them with the stroke of a pen. It is simplicity. No need for every state to pass legislation regarding ssm marriage. No chance for some states to discriminate and disallow the rights granted in another when someone relocates. That approach is too complex. The legal rights that come with a marriage certificate are the same from state to state. Unions by other nomenclature are the subject of each state's legislature and that just makes it too complicated.
Ok, homosexuals aren't mentally ill deviants in need of treatment. But, they do not deserve the same recognition as heterosexuals, because they are not equal to heterosexuals, with regards marriage and raising of families. This is the issue. Bringing them the rights that they do not need. National granting of those rights is not legal. There is every need for each state to write its own legislation, as the Constitution makes that clear. Complicated or not.

You're the worst kind of trator that there is. One that will allow the defilement of our basic freedoms and rights, in order to get what you want. And you have the nerve to label it "babble"? You should be shot, because you are insane and dangerous to our liberty.

Dear Rock-Hard,

Typing in caps, while on an internet forum, IS shouting. If you're going to participate in the process, you should know the rules.

No it's not! It's about having the very same rights as you per our Constitution and the 14th Amendment! Separate and equal is NOT equal! You are no better than any gay person! You may think so but you are a hypocrite and totally delusional! If some financial gain is part of the equation so what,No different than the rights that you enjoy! So very glad I could help,and by the way you shouldn't threaten to shoot some one on a thread,which again shows what a loser you are! I won't report you as you're simply not worth it,but I'm sure someone will and rightfully so bigot boy! I can't wait till June,boy you'll really be whining after the Supreme court rules against your hatred and bigotry!

So what you're saying is that even though gay folk aren't mentally ill or in need of treatment, they're inferior to us heterosexuals. Got it. Perhaps you'd give them 3/5s equality?

The number of current federal workers and retired who owed delinquent income taxes jumped by nearly 12 percent in 2011.

About 312,000 federal current and former owes more than $3.5 billion in back taxes.

Time to through them in to prison where the dead beats belong.

Anytime a gay says , "So what you're saying is...", you can be sure that is not what they are saying.

Gay couples can only ever be a barren duplicate half of marriage.

A gay home will ALWAYS deprive a child of one parental gender and at least one birth parent.

Undeniable, devastating differences.

Smirk.
