To be honest I wouldn't jump for joy if one of my kids were gay but I would love and support them no matter what I know it would be a open bar during the ceremony. What have notice over the years living from Compton to Lakewood my family pretty much had money. White folks realy care about what people do behind there own close doors and what people think about them I know I am married one. If they want to get married so what. People are so afraid of everyone might invade there picture perfect lives let me tell you something let's start out the year of not judging

You really want to bring into yet another topic your fabulous and glorious impeachment obsession into another thread....
Ok folks, be advised, the one that keeps harping on the subject is now infecting yet another topic with his endless and mindless obsession.
I will no longer be reading any of Liar Mikes posts on this subject just sending my automatic reply
Liar Mike, who lied that I said he was not impeached, who lied when he said I changed what I have been saying, and who lied when he said I was the one harping on this subject that he keeps bringing back up. Who has not been able to find a single post where I said he wasn’t impeached, or that I was saying something different than I am saying now.
Clinton was impeached
After being impeached by the house the impeachment ultimately failed when Clinton was acquitted in the Senate and there were no consequences applied that were written into the impeachment.
YUK!YUK!YUK! "Liar Mike"! You mad bro'?

Liar liar pants on fire!

What a jackass!

P.S. Clinton was impeached. It didn't fail. You were wrong. And that's no lie!

And why privilege such a relationship between two people? Why not two best friends? An employer and his favorite employee? A farmer and his dog?

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.
Put bluntly, if heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?
So heterosexuals aren't getting married anymore? If you had two brain cells to rub together...... you'd still be empty headed. And why would you be interested in monogamy and polygamy at the same time? Because you are just a provocateur.

I'm interested in equality. Sorry if you don't like equality for everyone, but that's kinda what it means.

Please improve your dopey ad hominem! Please! You can do much better. I've seen a spark of a sense of humor sometimes under all that NPD and anger.

Yes. All marriages promote stability. Even ones you are against. Like polygamy.

LOL the act of preforming a marriage does not provide stability, that us nothing more than a traditional ceremony

It is the attitude toward a partnership and commitment of the people involved that provides stability.

My wife is not my property, she is my partner, my best friend,, and the one person that I could tell anything to.

My marriage is stable, and not because of some piece of paper.

Explain how you can whine about polygamy and monogamy at the same time.

"Interested in equality"..... THAT'S a laugh.

We enjoyed the party, and wanted to have it, it is as much for our friends and family as for ourselves.

We spent more on the Honeymoon than we did the ceremony.

And there are legal ramifications it was a good idea to do at that point in our relationship

But that ceremony and that piece of paper does not make our marriage, we do.

A killjoy eh? You're the only killjoy here, a killjoy of yourself. You don't have any body you love who you can share sex as a sign of affection with, no wonder you seek it so many times. Poor child.

Yeah? "Let there be light".
Light, day and night before the sun was created in Gen 1:16.
It's clear they didn't know that day and night were caused by the rotation of section of the earth towards and away form the sun. It also seems they believed the moon produced its own light, and it's clear they believed the earth was flat, and the heavens were solid.
God refers to light coming from the stars, the moon, and the sun, never from anywhere else.
