That was when the gene pool was small. Now that it the gene pool is large, it is diluted and needs to be regulated to preserve the strength of the best genes.

You will notice I get "attacked" from both sides. That's because I am an independent thinker, unlike you sheep who live in a simplistic world of absolutes.

I other words, you're a partisan dope. And don't think for yourself.

The majority of the voters in California, voted for the ban on same sex marriage.
Then some liberal, left wing judge, from the 9th Circuit Court decides to strike it down.
Wrong - Wrong - Wrong. GOD IS GONNA CUT YOU DOWN!!!!!!!!!!
Edith agrees.
Well said.
To think a state thatvhas the largest amount of gay people in it does NOT want Gay marriage says a lot.
But to think they do NOT have the right to see their opinions valued is a sad state of affairs.
Obama is a horrible president when it comes to valueing people rights to freedom of speech, life (you cannot create babies with the same sex partners) & our basic liberties.

<quoted text>There is no such thing as ss couples being married.

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

ss couples are a direct defect contradiction to the primary purpose of evolutionary mating behavior. Literally 'unmarriage'.

You wouldn't know a rational argument if it bit you on the ass. Maybe if you lose the weight?

HO, HO, HO
Actually you are false. There are currently states that have ss married couples. So once again you are wrong!!

Evolutionary mating behavior has males humping and female that is in heat without monogamy. Once again you are false by trying to equate mating behavior. Also in nature there are many species that participate in sexual acts between the same gender. Ever are a male dog hump another male dog. Pretty sure everyone has.

actually that vote was during a quickly closing window of opportunity that the churches took advantage of.

If the Supreme court does not make the right decision, it will go back on a ballot and Prop 8 will quickly be struck down by popular vote today, all the polls show the same result.

U.S. sees highest poverty spike since the 1960s, leaving 50 million Americans poor as government cuts billions in spending.

RNC, GOP, Republicans and tea party members are in 7th heaven, they all agree that the weak should die and the strong must live (SO DID HITLER) so does that mean there's no way out?
