They have been explaining to me how clueless they are lately.

Several of them have absolutely no idea that a majority of voters support same sex marriage in the US.

I can only imagine they are standing around slack jawed not comprehending why all these changes are taking place.

I cannot imagine being that misinformed

I know you don't like the specifics being pointed out, because it exposes once again the vast distinction between marriage and an imposter defective relationship.
Any direction logic goes with gay denial requires a distortion of words. You can pretend all you want, but intelligent, moral people are only insulted by the ignorance you are trying to perpetrate.

My god but you are one ignorant lying hater! I'm betting that you have brown eyes and that would explain that you are full of shyte all the way up to them! Reparative therapy simply does not work and the vast majority of psychiatrists and Psychologists highly recommend against such bogus,useless therapy as it can cause great harm to the patient! The very few who claim that it did work are simply in denial and are merely celibate which is not being cured LIAR! Lets see what the experts actually have to say on the subject and it is the complete opposite of your B.S.!
Reparative therapy,does it work? The answer is a simple NO as being gay is an innate condition that does NOT need to be changed!

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

Put simply, if heterosexuality is no longer legally, morally or socially relevant to marriage, why should monogamy continue to be so important?

P.S. I am posting about marriage equality which is NOT off topic like magic trees, ribs etc. that Big D harps on and on about. So hold the whining.

Opponents of gay rights often warn that legalizing same-sex marriage would inexorably lead to legalizing polygamy. Maybe it would, and maybe it should. Denying gay couples the right to marry violates state constitutional guarantees of equality, as the California and Massachusetts high courts have rightly ruled.(The Supreme Court of California also held that the right to marry is fundamental.) Surely Mormons have the same rights to equal treatment under lawóand of course, they have a substantial First Amendment claim to engage in multiple marriages according to the dictates of their faith.

So why is polygamy illegal? Why donít Mormons have the right to enter into multiple marriages sanctified by their church, if not the state? Thereís a short answer to this question but not a very good one: polygamy is illegal and unprotected by the Constitution because the Supreme Court doesnít like it.

You are a hater and I am not. You are against true marriage equality. Which makes you a hypocrite.

What harm would a consensual marriage of three adult men cause you, hater?

Alright then hypocrite, you mull that over and get back to me if you're not too angry to post.

This is what the people voted on, not once but twice.
"Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."
Very simple.....they voted on the definition of marriage. That's it! No rights, or slavery, or majority/minority......
Why is it so controversial for society to have, recognize, privilege, marriage as a union of husband and wife? Because a minority within a sexual minority want their personal intimate same sex sexual relationship called "marriage"?

It use to be against the law for people of different races to marry just because most people didn't like it. Do you think that made it right?

Exactly, we are talking to people who do not want change, even positive change, they are stuck in the past and cannot see a brighter future, they pine for old days that they see through rose colored glasses.

But the good old days werenít all that good

But heterosexuality isn't illegal, immoral, and it still is socially relevant to marriage.
It seems to me the biggest fear anti-SSM people have is that SSM is going to some how destory heterosexual marriage. Like any fear those who want to stop SSM use that fear to further thier own agenda, and get the frighten masses to have even more fear. Shame on those people

Yep

I am heterosexual, married, 18,000 same sex couples marrying in California didnít hurt my marriage at all.( shrug )
