Oh, so NOW it is a question about mixed couples vs gay couples, eh ? Well, we'd have to examine the differences between the 2 couples.
1) One couple is legitimate, and the other is not. 1 couple is free to marry, and the other is not. That is because of the anti-gay marriage laws, that are the majority rule, that the Federal government is not free to decide. That decision is left to the states, to decide, based upon the sexual behavior of the 2 differing types of couples.
Well, bigfoot, the fact that one couple is free to marry, and the other is not violates the 14th Amendment. That's the whole point. And the issue is gender, we don't know about their sexual behavior.

2) Glad we straightened that out, that Loving v VA was about inter-racial marriage, and not about gay couples.
It was about equal protection under the law when it comes to marriage. Why deny it?
R Hudson wrote:
3) Of course I am normal.
Well, you were straight before you engaged in any sexual behavior. Weren't you?

4) You still haven't answered my question about your religious beliefs.....Oh, silly me, there is no #4, that wasn't part of this post, oh well.
I told you, I'm an Orthodox Jew, just like you are Wiccan.

1) Of course it is equal, any man is free to marry any woman. Total equality there.
But, any woman isn't. So, no equality.

2) Kimare doesn't need to be told obvious facts.
3) You tell me what percentage of the population is made up of gay males.
Fewer than the percentage of straight people who engage in anal sex.

Tactic #4
<quoted text>
WTF?
Tactic 1, I guess.
<quoted text>
Not until we rewrite the tax code/
Rose tactic #1- Act stupid-(not so sure it is an act)
Rose Tactic #2- Misdirect
Rose Tactic #3- Make stupid comments until opposition is tired of replying then claim victory
Rose Tactic #4- Attack the poster- scream Racist, Bigot, Homophobe
Rose Tactic #5- Act intelligent by making silly statistical references such as- Most people who have anal sex are straight-
Rose Tactic #6- Falsely accuse others of lies- when proven wrong through links to previous posts revert back to tactics 2 and 4.
Rose Tactic #7- Claim to have made an argument, then claim others can't counter the argument that doesn't actually exist.
akpilot's only tactic - avoid debating my argument and try to insult me.

There just isn't a rational argument against gay marriage. And the recent elections showed that more and more people are realizing that fact. This is a simple equal rights issue. Religion shouldn't figure into it. People should keep their religions to themselves. Reproduction isn't an issue. You don't have to be able to procreate in order to marry. Tradition isn't an issue. The government shouldn't be in charge of upholding traditions.

Once again Rose, you must present an argument if you want someone to "deal" with it.
My guess is you are simply out of ideas.

I sometimes do. Perhaps your bias makes you miss them.
I support same sex marriage. I don't support pompous iceholes who think since they support SSM, their sh!t no longer stinks. And who think I should consider it the most important issue in our troubled world.
Good luck, hope you get to marry whoever you like. Don't shoot the messenger.
STILL no girlfriend???

Might want to shift from being a worthless smartass into a man someday.

You're the one avoiding Rose, you parrot this nonsense as if you have ever made a credible argument for someone to counter.

You debate like a 5 year old trying to get a candy bar at the checkout line.

Ok Rose, let's give you the benefit of doubt since you are a little slow.

Why don't you tell us what this "argument" is that you presented which it is your claim I cannot counter.

So, if I read this right, you are laughingly claiming that no-one, who isn't in a union, is being taught anything ? Choke on me, loser...You need to make $37 an hour, to fuel your union extortionists dues. And you are overpaid, anyway.
You are NOT reading it right as usual. You are so dumb and choke on yourself you spinless scab ... Go FK yourself

<quoted text> The unions are a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many.
You are right about one thing, it's not meant for people like you who have no spine and will let the employer have there way with them. It's the unions comprised of true Americans that set the standars of a level playing field when dealing with tight assed cigar smoking management and the employers. The employer will still continue to treat their labor the way they did back in the day if allowed, that is why unions are still around, and just to clarify your misunderstanding of a union member, we are not thugs, it just may look like it to someone like you who is spinless to face his management. Now I know what you meant by "Tip-licking" you are the queen of it. LMAO now go away

Lucky for me, your wife doesn't. She ain't half bad. You might have noticed she learned some new tricks, or maybe not, since she says you haven't been able to get it up for a while and you're always neglecting her while you're on topix.

It's OK buddy, I'm taking up the slack. Notice she's smiling again?

TOO Funny!
