"Limit freedom of others"? Huh? Please clarify? I would think absence of gov't regulation in one's private life is real freedom.

So what about couples that can't reproduce they shouldn't be allowed to be married? People shouldn't be allowed to use condoms or birth control. That's what you are saying its all about sex and reproducing?? So women are like the bitches at a puppy farm?
By your logic, because the government doesn't require procreation or sex, anyone who doesn't procreate or have sex is qualified for marriage.

What else doesn't the government require for marriage?

Same sex marriage is just another grab at freedom, gays used to be able to cohabit without fear of suit for breach of promise. Same sex marriage forces government to treat marriage as if mother and father or husband and wife are disposable. It harms everyone including singles.
There are more important issues, like gays not being able to march in Moscow or survival in other countries.
Stop the hate.
Just another grab at freedom? What is wrong with that? The fears center around things like HIPAA regulations, end of life decisions, inheritance, and over 1000 other little tidbits that a stroke of a pen would give to homosexual couples. Face it, some families aren't accepting of their children's orientation and take it out on their mates when the child is dead or getting there.

K-Mart, your reading and comprehension is a bit off tonight. We've heard your ramblings about same sex marriage, but the post you quoted was about polygamy. So there'd be no elimination of any parent. Not that same sex marriage does that either. If a couple has a child and then divorces, does the child necessarily lose a parent? Nope.

Anyway, we were talking polygamy. So the kid would have two dads and a mom, or two moms and a dad. No deficiency, just a bonus parent. Ain't that great?

Who were you calling an idiot? Must have been yourself as I know how you feel about ad hominem attacks and name calling. Goes right along with your silly claim that you're a chimera, lesbian trapped in a man's body, and a monster mutation. You should've picked just one of 'em instead of going overboard. Are you siamese quintuplets too?

Is your view that couples that don't procreate aren't in real marriages?

You hear wrong honey. I've set up work days, day care, legal help, and fixed cars for divorced parents. I've cried with gone to court with and walked day and night with numerous people going through divorce. I've listened to little girls tell me they don't want a 'new' dad. Don't tell me I'm lazy. And I'm just one of many who have done the same thing.

That is just one of countless things hundreds of Churches do in every single community around this world every single day. They disagree with calling ss couples married and sexual immorality, and you entirely condemn them? We've put our money, time and life where our mouth is. Not to earn your approval, but out of grateful hearts and the hope we've found in our struggles.

You might try it sometime.

I understood perfectly. You in fact reiterated exactly what I responded to.

Are you really arguing that a duplicated redumbant half is better that a mom and dad?

Are you really also using a gay troll attack to divert from that issue.

Busted.

I do believe VV is well prepared. He's been around a lot longer than you have. He presents very cogent arguments and has been most respectful in here. With your young age you're already filled with a number of misconceptions, at least you've put forth a lot of them in here. I think you're the one in need of being prepared for the world.

No, I think AIDS exposed that gays were too promiscuous.

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

ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.

No hate, just simple reality.

I've updated your comment to reflect the increasingly favorable opinion about homosexuals and marriage. Soon you'll be as significant as a brontosaurus. Interesting to look at but extinct. Yeah, I know, there will always be those who look down on homosexuals, but they'll soon be looked upon in the same fashion as those who still look down on others due to their race.

Would that be two loving parents like the ones I had or a mom who stood by while her husband fucked their daughter like my high school girlfriend? I didn't know it was that bad at the time, but they were first class arseholes and used to beat the shit out of her too, both of them. Then there were the screwed up parents around the corner who made my best friend's life a living hell. Another girl next door to him also lost her virginity to her father. Then there was the family at the entrance to our neighborhood, big brother sexually abused his sister. She was a wreck. Parents didn't seem to know what was going on, maybe, at least they acted that way.

Oh, and my college sweetheart, her mom stood by while the stepdad abused her sexually and mentally, and sexually some more. He also had his way with her half sister (his own daughter). We don't know when it started as the young mind has a way of blotting out things. Her step brother was upset when charges were pressed against the old jerk. He claimed she was ruining a perfectly good family. I bet he's a stellar parent by now. I wonder if he screws his daughters like his father did.

Yeah, I'd rather have two moms or two dads over that any day. As long as they didn't hit me or rape me, and were supportive. that'd be a good start. And there is a lot of it out there, biological parents totally unsuited for parenting.

Smirk.
