So you don't believe in freedom of religion then? The only real reason people oppose same sex marriage is because their god says its wrong, well guess what, your god isn't my god, why the hell should I have to play by its rules? No one is forcing your churches to marry gays, and their marriages do not effect yours in the least. You seem to have this ideal vision of how this society should be morally, completely igoring the fact that as long as what we do is legal, consensual and doesn't hurt anybody we should be free to do it whether YOU think it's moral or not, that's what freedom is. You're all ignorant, egotistical, selfish, controlling bastards. Get a life and leave ours alone.
Yes, there is no rational argument against gay marriage. You can read the thousands and thousands of posts in this forum and see that.
Why can't the fundies follow their own bible and tend to their own knitting?

I am frustrated that the people of California voted on this issue and then a judge has the audacity to think he or she can over turn our vote? Why put it on the ballot? There are a lot of things that have passed that I'm not in favor but I remember that it was put to a vote. We the people need to take a stand and let our government know that our vote does count otherwise we are not a Democracy! Why Vote????!!!!!! 100 wrong! This judge needs to stop having dinner with people who think they are in charge of our state & remember who they work for.
Hey, stupid, that's his job. We have a Constitution that promises equal protection under the law, even when that's not popular with simpletons like you. And, idiot, it's not a democracy! It's a constitutional republic. And it would be best if idiots like you didn't vote.

Why do think that you can say he is gay ? He hasn't said that he is, so you are displaying your 9th grade mentality by trying that on...Also, I am sure that he has less "internal conflicts and self doubt" than you do...he says it like it is, and you aren't going to make anyone think that he is something that he isn't...You appear to be unable to read, as he is not against same sex marriage, did you realize that ? I doubt it. Why don't you examine your own self for flaws, instead of mistakenly thinking that you have the right picture about.....well, anything ? Stupid dunce. Learn how to read, and you might spend less time putting your foot in your mouth (amongst other things that don't belong there)...Schmuck.

The ERA failed, now you know why.
Yes, there is, 14th Amendment. Says all US citizens should get equal protection under the law. Doesn't say "except for women."
The ERA would have been redundant.

Any child raised by a same sex couple is raised without a mother or a father. It's a shame homosexuals who don't want to marry the mother or father of their child, who make their kids into bastards.

Section Two of the 14th Amendment explicitly recognizes male and female as unequal.

Why do you fundies think we care about your dopey bible verses? They sound funny and use strange words. Please keep them to yourself.

P.S. Who's "Luke 6:29" anyway?

It seems Rose_NoHo has gotten his/her medication adjusted.(S)he's slightly less dopey but a lot more loquacious. Still extremely angry though.

And lately (s)he's been spouting bible verses like some quacked out fundie!

Funny stuff!
