So parroting a homosexual Fundamentalist mantra gets a handful of negative smilies?

There's simply no pleasing the pubescent poopists, is there?

The fishin' is always good.

You must be new around here. Don't you know what your fellow polyp busters do? Well, there's one who has the mental age of, oh, say 9, and the imbecile had "Fundamentalists = Blight on Society" as a tagline under its name and comic book avatard..

So I turned your kind's hypocritical juvenile sloganeering and turned it back on you, and now sit back and wait for the next dumb-ass, meaning you, of course, to come around and wail about Intolerance and Homophobia and Racism and whatever else you passe pussies want to throw out there.

Oh, the imbecile changed its tagline to something even more stupid, if you know the context.

Thanks for playing, and your consolation prize is a package of stool corn.

Do you service erections for fun or profit? Pop says you do that kind of thing because its your way of life.

I imagine your family is quite ashamed and disgusted with you.

She pieced together information taken from articles to come up with an opinion piece. It's the same as every high school student who has been assigned to write a term paper. Their work isn't "science". It's an argument (at best).
And once again, I am completely puzzled as to what the last paragraph you wrote means. "...notice how far we've gone from your claim that the essence of marriage was nonsensical."
What does that mean? Did I claim that marriage is nonsensical? Why am I here day after day arguing in favor of same-sex marriage if I think it's nonsensical?
YOU'RE the one who believes that the basic essence of marriage is to ensnare a man by a defenseless woman so that she can have a better chance to have her offspring cared for.
In your definition, men are a bunch of irresponsible, horny, jerks who MUST be tied to a woman via a legal contract so that he doesn't run off and impregnate half the state; leaving his families to fend for themselves.
Is that how you see your marriage?
To me, marriage is about love and commitment--monogamy--promisin g to be with one another for life regardless of what is thrown your way. It's about mutual respect. It's about attraction--physical and emotional.
That's my own personal definition of marriage.
But I'm realistic enough to understand that people get married for a variety of reasons.
You go right ahead and cling to your definition of marriage. My condolences to your wife...
Still gay twirling.

-A term paper is judged by the validity of it's content and references, not because it is a 'term paper'.

Please, what information was misused?

-You pretend ignorance again regarding the essence of marriage, first ignoring the qualifying term 'essence' feigning confusion, but then adding it in the very next sentence. Obvious immaturity foolishly attempting to cover the lack of a logical response.

-I've never limited marriage to mating behavior, hence the term 'essence'. In fact, you attempt to hitchhike classic elements of marriage with notable exceptions; Ignoring the anal violence, and the mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Stand a ss couple next to a married couple. Looks silly stupid pretending they are the same, doesn't it.

It was only a few days ago that one of you complained that I only made drive-by comments. There's just no pleasing such a bunch.

Well, at least you admitted your commitment to duncehood.

Oh, silly me, I didn't understand that Sunshine's inability to sit still is because she's hungry. She was salivating to the point of dehydration because of the corn!

Sunshine, I haven't yet had my coffee,(which happens to be a wonderful bowel stimulant). If you can hold on a little longer, I'll soon have your breakfast.

You didn't hurt my feelings in the least. You are too insignificant to affect my feelings. And by the way you old fart, "From a SS couple?" is NOT a statement of fact, it's a question. Questions aren't facts you stupid cow. So yes, sowing discord fits.

I was referring specifically to your partner and you. You say you are married, but it's clearly not the same, is it?
I don't have a partner, I have a husband. Because I'm married, just like all other married people. And whether or not we can mutually produce a child still remains completely irrelevant, but don't let that get in the way of your stupid posts dear.

Marriage does in fact legally establish responsibilities for parents.
But it does not require parenting. Never has, never will.

Are you asserting that religion doesn't expect parental responsibility???
What difference does religion have in this discussion? Oh, that's right....NONE.

The fact remains that the primary purpose of marriage is to promote and support family.
That is totally your opinion. Procreation is still not a requirement of marriage. But don't let that stop you from posting dear. There is nothing like watching a fundamentalist spin in their webs of repetition hoping it somehow magically creates some truth that doesn't exist.

My 'definition' is simply a concise scientific statement as the article explains and you admitted.

You discussing other people's character is like a piece of shyt discussing the cleanliness of the toilet bowl.
