But there is no real question in my mind that it will be struck down.
And that will be glad news no matter how expected
there is nothing like winning when you didnt expect to...

that said, it feels good to win, when YOU KNOW you are right, and it is simply a matter of the court backing US up and telling the bigots to finally....SIT DOWN.!!!!!

I had that same feeling last fall, when Obama trounced thurston howell the third, and his car elevator!!

all the racist bigots were ready for a big racist hurrah!!

unfortunately for them?? they were watching faux news, and were badly mislead into thinking they would win.!!

when they were trounced firmly....

many of them act as theough the election never happed, and amercia DIDNT shoot their agenda down.

Neither word applies to marriage, which is a legal joining of two adults that results in forming a family.
Why do you think that posting and re-posting such silly things will have any bearing on the topic? It doesn't get more sensible or relevent with age.
The irony is that gays claim the right to dictate which words apply and which definition applies to marriage.

The separation of children as a factor of marriage is a form of apartheid.

Deleting a gender from a marriage is clear gender segregation.

These words perfectly describe, within their current definitions what you are attempting to do. God blessed Brian with that insight. It fatally pierces the deception of calling ss couples 'married'.

Moreover, at it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. You have no defense of that fact.

All you can do is de-define marriage to a friendship dictated by the government and resulting in the deprivation of at least one of the only biological parents a child will ever have.

How romantic, and how costly for the child.

Happy?

Another lie.
If you used my argument, you would use my example. My wife and I fostered over ten children who were restored to their parent(s).
Why is it VV, that you can never argue from the facts? Does that not trouble you inside? Are you that seared? Sad.
hopefully those ten kids recovered and didnt catch what ever mental disorder you suffer from.....some of the things coming out of you should be studied by psychiatrits and papers written about you!! you could make a signifigant contribution to medical science.

No, it is not the same. Clearly only a duplicated half imposing an imposter relationship by legal manipulation because you could not convince many to deny reality.

then don't get gay married if it has no meaning to you.
you make your own marriage. just like anyone else does in their own marriage. if your marriage is diluted because some stranger across the street marries a same sex partner, or someone across town or across the state....that's pretty sad for you and a lousy excuse to use because you're not happy with marriage.
try again. you won't succeed. but try again.
Words describe reality.

For instance, your tirade exposes you as an idiot.

See what I mean?

Marriage can never describe a ss couple. If you call the tail on a dog a leg, what is it?

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

ss couples are a direct, defective contradiction to the singular goal of evolution. Literally 'unmarriage'.

You are free to oppose whatever you choose, but we are a nation of law, You keep wanting for force your view on others. I do not, I am in a heterosexual marriage and no one is forcing me into a homosexual marriage, I only accept that homosexuals are Americans too and deserve the same rights and privileges as any other American, but I am a patriot and freedom and justice are probably more important to me than to you.
social conservatives sometimes remind me of a lost tribe in the amazon...

most of them are convinced we are all alone in the universe...

when in comparison with the culture that is likely OUT THERE??/

earth religions would be veiwed as quaint and relatively new...

according the rest of the galaxy?? our planet is like the missisippi of the milky way.....

Still no specific survey? Wonder why. Not.

There are 120,000 imposter relationships that everyone knows the minute they see any ONE of them is distinct from marriage.

NO child will ever look at a ss couple and say, "mom and dad".

Yes it is, it is law, your bigoted opinion means nothing, your religion has no say in the matter.

As legal and just as any other marriage, regardless of your ignorance of the fact.

You are so funny!

If you take out the European add-ons, and specific Churches already included in the American denominations listed, not to mention the Jewish faith, you have a teanie minority that is rarely represented by more than one 'church' in any community of our country.

Why not just list the comparison honey? I know, it's worse then your obvious stretch. I guess when you are trying to convince people to accept an imposter relationship, this is only another step of deceit...

Snicker.

58% of the country would be gay....

but they are going to make HUGE leaps ahead in their cause, this week.
and that is where the joke is on you....
the bigots are clearly on the wrong side of history.....

Agreed.
You keep wanting for force your view on others. I do not,
Uhhhhhh....Big D...you kind of are. U believe legal marriage should be redefined, I do not. Why is my contention, it not be redefined, "forcing my view on others, but your contention, it should be redefined, not forcing one's view on others?
I am in a heterosexual marriage and no one is forcing me into a homosexual marriage,
Technically you are in an opposite sex marriage, or conjugal, as in husband and wife. Glad to hear you're not being forced into a SSM.
I only accept that homosexuals are Americans too and deserve the same rights and privileges as any other American
As do I accept them as Americans. Technically they ALREADY HAVE the same rights and privileges as any other Americans. They simply don't want to exercise the rights in the same way.
, but I am a patriot and freedom and justice are probably more important to me than to you.
Truth, Justice, and the American way.....no wait that's Superman. Sigh....I too am a Patriot, Fins fan actually... Freedom and Justice are just as important to me. It doesn't mean everything is subjected to Orwellian concepts of "equality". Different situations, different solutions.

Nope, untrue. My WIFE and I are a very happily-MARRIED lesbian FAMILY. We will celebrate our fifth WEDDING ANNIVERSARY the end of June.

Deal with it, and grow UP. Mommy wants her pots and pans back, now.

Awwww..that's so clever, "reich winger", did you think of that all by yourself, or did the rest of the rainbow clubhouse help you out?

As the "....being granted their civil rights...", that ignores the fact that gays all ready have the same civil right as any other American, they simply don't like the way its exercised. A solution here would be to recognize different situations, different solutions.
your vision is narrow, oh so narrow.
As is yours, plus yours is narrow in all the colors of the rainbow, sparkle.:)
