But, silly child, the grownups ARE talking, even if we let a few little kiddies, like you, join in. Let the poofs make up contracts, if they wish. They are not to be allowed to call it a marriage, any more than being religious makes one a priest...
not allowed to call it a marriage?

these states and countries would tell you otherwise, bub :
Connecticut, Washington DC, Iowa, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hamshire, New York, Vermont, Washington. Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden.

and since when do you get to define marriage for anyone else other than yourself? if that's the case, then who defined your marriage for you? and why did you let them?

Can a judge overrule reality? Commonsense?
You have no answer for two simple assertions;
1. The government has NO interest in protecting or supporting a friendship.
2. It is unconstitutional bias to selectively support friendships.
Moreover, you deny the most basic roots of marriage. A cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Snicker.
tell ya what. take it to court regarding friendships. see what the judge says. then we can talk about what the judge says, kiddo.

when you need a contract to enter into a friendship, then there's a discussion. until then, well, you lose.

the guy talks out of....well other parts of his anatomy frequently. i've read his posts for a few yrs now. he goes in cycles, repeating the same bumpersticker comments every few months. he thinks he sound educated - we see and know differently. he has no understanding of either the constitution or what judge's have found and written. he doesn't understand what "all" means in the 14th amendment in the u.s. constitution - he thinks it just applies to men since he says women aren't mentioned in the constitution.
as bugs bunny says "what a maroon".
just sit back, have a drink & a chuckle at his posts. at least he sticks with one name. LOL.
Both genders have to be mentioned! It is meant to be a formal leaflet! And how would you have been on this thread for several years? You were probably around only 10 and would therefore not have the reading comprehension to understand him! Don't lie to me lil boy! And how come gay bath houses are only for men?

Correct your posts all you want to, It doesn't matter what the gays want, they may not appropriate a title that is not their due. They covet something that they do not rate. Period. And I am waiting for the SCOTUS to hand down the ruling that states that they have no authority to legislate marriage, as we already know. California will reinstate the ban on SSM, as the majority of its population wishes. And then, other states will follow suit.
please show us how you own the word, either via patents or legal documents.

until then, it's just a legal term and as such, is not owned by anyone.

<quoted text> It refused to allow any marriage, except between man and woman. Thus excluding polygamy, as it did SSM. Any argument that defends SSM must also defend polygamy, for the exact same reasons, freedom of choice. Silly, that was easy. Go apply some make-up and think of yourself as normal. LOL As if you can...
show us where in the court documents that polygamy was included or specifically named in any way shape or form in the law or the law suit.

Put more correctly: Things should be left alone, until need is shown for change.
....and that's what's happening now with the law suits circulating through the system regarding DOMA and Prop 8.

so far, all the seated judges that have heard the cases have agreed - the days are numbered for both laws.

i've read brian's steady commentary on topix for a few yrs in this and other threads. ya know, there's a whole lot of other threads besides this one, buddy.

so, please do tell us what "all" means in regards to the 14th amendment. seated judges have already decided this, but i'm sure it'd be worth a chuckle or 3 to read your thoughts on how "all" excludes one gender or race or group from the protections and guarantees stated in the 14th amendment.

It ought to be! It was part of marriage and a birth certificate that is states the spouse(Not Spouses, just spouse, hence no plural). And marriage certificates are meant to show this! Marriage to several partners aren't allowed.

Republicans want members of their party to stop making controversial comments about rape. That includes those idiots from the Tea Party too.

The recent backlash after Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey attempted to explain defeated Senate candidate Todd Akin's rape comments.

They can't help it, there stupid republicans and tea party members trapped in the 16th century mind set.

Why do you bother supporting anti homosexuality but yet reject monogamy? Is it because you don't support your God lorally like a good believer and just to gain a little pride in yourself? You reject the branches you came from! What a rebellious child of God! I accept and loyally fight for Gods name on all fronts, and yet you are too lazy for that! What does proverbs say about lazy men? Were you lazy as a child as well?
I'm sorry that you are relatively new here, allowances must be made for that, I expect. I am a witch, stated that some time ago, but i do not refute the presence of God, my religion accepts all others, the only one that does, I think. However, I shall answer your questions.
1) I have no problem that people want to be gay, that is their choice.
2) I do not reject monogamy, merely including polygamy as a valid choice, when discussing the possibility of striking down Prop 8.
3) My pride is alive, and well, thank you.
4) My branches are British, so if you do a little homework, you might surmise that I embrace my branches, and trees on the whole.
5) You may fight for God, I have no problem with that.
6) As per calling me lazy, I must laugh, as I work between 12 and 16 hours a day, I drive trucks, and am often at work, both on the road and as a local driver. Never suffered from laziness, but thank you for asking.

Glendora city hall has installed new methods to combat problems:

We are resolved to address these problems comprehensively and decisively. Since Chris Jeffers is under pressure to fix the problems he created.

City Hall has set up a whistle-blower system and made changes in its security department to discourage management employees from straying outside the law.
