That is what the slave owners said a few generations ago, look at their organizations now.

Does not bode well for how future generations will be looking at your religion does it?

Huge difference between skin color, and equating a sterile redumbant gendered couple with marriage.

It is clear your bigotry brought religion in, I was speaking about simple common sense.

Future generations will laugh at another brief excursion into denial. Children deprived of nature's provision of a mother and father will not laugh.

You donít comprehend what I am saying, your bigotry is exposed, a majority of Americans recognize that you and your kind are nothing but ignorant bigots, and the organizations you belong to have become little more than hate groups..

Unless the churches change course on this subject, they will be equated more and more with organizations like the KKK

Excuse me, but a diverse gender couple is NOT the same as as a duplicated gender couple.
Moreover, because a redumbant gender couple is mutually sterile, they DON'T need the same rights and protections.
Duh.

Sorry Queen, it is you who looks silly gay twirling your way out of the corner.
The point was the difference between a diverse gendered couple and a duplicate gendered couple. You simply lied.
And the fair distinctions only continue when you consider the aspect of procreation (or total lack thereof...).
Remember this;
The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples;
An apple tree bearing fruit.
An apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
A walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be an apple tree.
A walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be an apple tree.
Even funnier?
The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!
Smile.
Then it must gall you to no end that same-gender couples are allowed to adopt children. I guess us walnut trees can be apple trees after all. A family is a family is a family.

The only thing you have in common with most of the others who are against same sex marriage is one thing; you're against same sex marriage.

The others fully recognize that homosexuality is a natural orientation within the continuum of human sexual orientation. They also don't seem to have a problem with gays adopting children.

You continue to be an extremist, who, I believe, secretly wishes to be tea-bagged. That must be why you align yourself with the tea-party.

Get your own identity and legitimate rights. Quit trying to impose an imposter relationship on marriage.
Adoptive parents already have more protections and benefits. Ss couples adopting already do too. They just deprive the child of one parent.
Smile.
Same-gender couples who adopt children undergo extreme scrutiny--more scrutiny, I'll bet, than opposite-gender couples. The love, support, discipline, and nurturing these kids receive are far superior to the environments they came from.

And I'd be willing to guarantee that many of these kids live in a happier, more stable home environment than you provided your own kids; what with whipping them from state to state, running from your own self-created demons.

You have said several times that you were victimized by a an insane person. That's why you left Hawaii. But I know that it takes two to play any game. You put your family through hell. You put your own wants and desires before their interests.

What a joke...

Gall? It grieves me for the sake of a child deprived of a parent to satisfy the vain attempt by a ss couple to imitate a real family.

How can I be against ss 'marriage'? There is no such thing to be against!

How can it be called a 'natural continuum' when the cause and purpose has not been determined?

The Tea Party stands for small government. Benghazi and the IRS despotism is exactly why that is the basis of our Constitution. Something you admit having no problem abusing.

Smirk.

It grieves a lot of us to see a child raised in an environment of ignorance, bigotry and hatred. Should we keep your kind from having or adpoting children?

Nice! King Big D decides who cannot have or "adpot" children for political reasons.

Hey, I'm using my professional opinion based on the events that I believe to be true.

Moving a child from one state to another, then another can be very traumatizing. It interferes with his/her ability to establish roots. It keeps them from being able to regularly see their extended family. It leaves them in a constant state of upheaval.

You did this to them. I'm simply pointing out the facts.

There's nothing slanderous about that.

There is no question that a majority of Americans support same sex marriage, which means widespread support of heterosexuals as well
