Are you the same Lilith from the baby killing threads? Why is it so unreasonable to accept you are a sinner, and humble yourself to the teachings of Jesus Christ, regardless whether you accept him as the son of God? All he wants is for us to love one another, treat each other with respect, to be patient, kind, and peaceful. So you show up and build bridges by insulting those trying to be better humans by at least acknowledging and working to be like him?

Ya blew right past what I wrote, even though I sense you understood my point. Let's see what I wrote:

"Other wise why would it matter who married who. C'mon Jared, think about it. Marriage, not individual ones, but the institution is about the sexes, what they do, have sex, and what that sex creates, little Jareds. That's why blood relatives, other than first cousins, are barred from marrying"

Why not address what I actually wrote?
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?
Hellllloooooo....McFly....WHY DOES MARRIAGE EXIST....see what you've made me do....IN THE FIRST PLACE?!!!!

Why does it matter who marries who, or who can't marry who?

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

In this society here in the USA many marriages exist for the rights and benefits that come with it. I know many straight couples that have no intention to have children but do want marriage.

I know a lot of people feeling that way.

I'm just pissed off enough to keep shoving reality in their faces come hell or high water.

Mocking their stupidity and exposing their lies kind of takes the fun out of it for them.

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?

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.
