I do believe that you are starting to catch on. Correct. A child raised by a same sex couple will be missing a vital component of a family.
No, they would not be.

Yes he was impeached by the house, and that impeachment failed in the senate a couple of months later.
Search all you like, you will not find a post were I said he was not impeached, he was, I know he was.
I also know what you donít know, that not a single penalty spelled out in the impeachment was carried out, because it failed at trial in the senate.
Not opinion, not conjecture, but fact
You certainly don't comprehend it, nor do you even have an even basic understanding of how this process works.

Impeachment only happens in ONE place in regards to the President- the HOUSE. No where else, that's it. The accused is either Impeached or they are Not. Once impeached it cannot fail, it is a done deal, you are forever more impeached.

Then we move to trial, where the Senate takes over. In the Senate you are either Convicted or Acquitted. It doesn't matter which the Senate chooses, you are still impeached.

Get a clue you moron.

Do you consider keeping your private property a "right"?

We seem to vote a lot on taking that with little issue.

Jailhouse Rock was a mid fifties comedy movie when homosexuals were of little threat to society. But times have changed. Homosexual fake pride is on the offence and I refuse to be silent and see cartoons featuring a kid doing a "flying butt plyers on his dog and say nothing. Countering homosexual recruitment for as long as poo stinks and longer just in case rose peddles become a popular menu idem.

You'r assuming there needs to be a "Daddy" and a "Mommy".
Your claiming to be a Wiccan is a sham.
A real Wiccan wouldn't talk about lesbians that way.

Rose's Law...
Morons with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?"
Gays aren't a threat to society.

They go from SF conga lines more the better to sham marriage hoping for financial gain with everyone else stuck with the bill but it is not going to work because we can not afford it. Employers will drop everybodyís benefits even those of NoHOs with kids. Go ahead and scream first amendment and I will counter your recruitments louder when I see them aimed at the young people. So in your urban dictionary how does it define "flying butt pliersĒ as seen on 1994 Saturday cartoons?" Sounded homosexual to me. The kid watching the flying butt pliers also turned homosexual early dew to his ďtolerantĒ mother. I also got a law as demonstrated to jailhouse queers.

Marriage is all about the children so why are the homosexuals trying to take benefits awaymnt from the children? That will be the effect of your sham marriages.

We aren't taking away anything from anyone.
We just want equal rights under the law and adopt children and live together as a happy same-sex couple.

You are very confused, aren't you?

If a same sex couple has kids, then the parents are both Moms or Dads, depending on gender. Geesh.

It's not that hard to understand.

And why must one parent be "frailer" than the other? Are there rules like that with heterosexual parents? Who decides?

Just because YOU don't have the ability to understand something, doesn't make it a "sham". It just means you have a lack of either understanding, or common sense.

And, really, since it doesn't affect you in any way, why worry about it? The gay couples and their kids, who are actually living their lives, aren't concerned.

If they aren't, you shouldn't be.

Only in your mind.

But, thankfully, you don't get to make decisions for other families and their children. Your opinion ceases to matter when you try to apply it to others.

Loving parents, well loved children, and stable families are NEVER out of "balance".

Why would you think they could be?

Is just because you don't have the personal experience to understand?

It's always easier to simply say "I don't know", than it is to create confusion in your own mind, and then try to apply it to people you have never met.

You blame the entire gay population for some cartoon that none of them have even seen?

What a demented idea.

Your post doesn't make sense.

Do you believe that childless straight married couples are taking benefits away from the children of gay folks?

So you believe that ALL married couples are a drain on society? You certainly can't just mean that gay married taxpayers are a drain - that would be illogical.

Please explain this odd idea?

Don't most studies show that marriage provides stability to families, and that this stability is GOOD for society?

You are taking away our right to keep the Constitution to read the way it has governed us since it originated. Even though amendments have been made it's obvious that there has been no interest by anyone including "homosexuals" to change the moral aspects of it to include homosexuals and their abnormal lifestyle.

Please explain how a homosexual marriages is "GOOD" for society !!
Gays are demanding the normal heterosexual society to accept homosexuals and their lifestyles married or not. Even if todays ruling swings to the favor of homosexuals, they will still be the odd man out and second class. It will just be another hurdle and obsticle to deal with in an abnormal society
