It's important to consider that in states where same-sex marriage is legal, public schools are required to teach impressionable children that homosexuality is a normal and an equally valid alternative to heterosexuality. This new and untested social experiment, which goes against humans’ procreative instincts and natural order, will have profound negative social, economic, health, and evolutionary consequences.
The LGBT movement would like you to believe that same-sex marriage is only an issue concerning two people who love each other, but that is far from the truth.
Our 'society' is being lead by a immoral crowd in the first place. Most ,if not all, politicians are void of moral conduct in the first place, pay offs,dope, sex scandals, etc. I bet there is not ONE politician that does not have some kind of demon in their own closed closet. Gays and their associates are the worst case of bigotry I can think of, they call ANYONE that doesn't agree with their lifestyle a hater and as true bigots do, hate them for their beliefs. Who ever thinks the gay life stlye is 'normal' does not know the definition of 'normal'. I won't print the definition, you look it up wherever you want, you'll be amazed at how stupid you really are. All these GLBTT.V.PB sexual perverts want equal rights, marriage equality and all of those other so called benefits, but I have yet to hear any one of them associate their 'marital bond' with Love. It's all about getting tax credits, pensions, benefits, personal sexual gratification, money, money, money. It is the beginning of the moral decay of man kind folks.

What is selfishness? Let us again turn to the great eye of Google to point us to he answer. It has conveniently (or inconveniently?) pointed us again to the blog of our friend KiMare:

Narcissism

“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.”

http://watchmann.blogspot.com/2010/01/narciss...

Perhaps this is the root of the hypocrisy? Perhaps this is evidence of the hypocrisy itself? Asking others to live as one wishes to live...does this sound familiar to the reader? A review of the many posts of KiMare will shed light on that.

Sometimes the truth is inconvenient.

The following article is a "must read" for anyone who denies the health risks of homosexual behavior:
WASHINGTON, February 14, 2008 ( LifeSiteNews.com )- In a public statement last Friday, Matt Foreman, outgoing Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, rattled the homosexual activist community by joining the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pro-family organizations and a growing number of homosexual activists willing to admit that homosexual behavior is both extremely high-risk and primarily responsible for the spread of HIV/AIDS in the U.S.
Addressing the topic of AIDS, Foreman drastically deviated from the "gay" lobby’s party line by admitting, "Internally, when these numbers come out, the ‘established’ gay community seems to have a collective shrug as if this isn’t our problem. Folks, with 70 percent of the people in this country living with HIV being gay or bi, we cannot deny that HIV is a gay disease. We have to own that and face up to that."
A little over a year ago, Lorri Jean, CEO of the Los Angeles-based Gay and Lesbian Center, similarly shocked the "gay" community by stating that, "HIV is a Gay Disease. Own it. End it."

Sounds good to me. Hopefully they will all get 'married' be 'comitted' to their partner (that will never happen)keep this between themselves, and natural selection will come into play. No hate folks, just act of nature. Normal.

WHY VOTE wrote:
Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????
Why Vote! I vote to stop bigotry in its tracks, and if that vote doesn't count and bigotry like yours comes out of the woodwork to discriminate against me, my skin color, my sexual orientation, or residential status, its awesome too know that the US Constitution is humane enough so that others like me are not trampled on by the oppression or killed by the hatred your kind breeds. Thank you US Supreme Court, for these bigots know not what they do!!

You are clearly a confused idiot.
Married couples have to PROTECT themselves to prevent procreation!
SS couples NEVER need protection for procreation. They just need protection to have sex.
Only a gay would be confused about this...
HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Silly bigot...

Please show me ONE statute in this country that basis its marriage laws on the notion that married couples have to protect themselves to prevent procreation. Did you get that from a marriage application?

You are hysterical!

Not believing in your beliefs is not intolerance. I've not stated you shouldn't be allowed to have your faith. I've not worked to have laws created that apply only to people of your faith. I've not done anything at all to deny you your right to freedom of religious expression. With that said, I'm under no obligation to express any sort of reverence for your deity or anyone else's. You can shove your intolerance accusation up your nose.

Self created persecution is one of the most used commonalities of fundamentalists. You people love to pretend you're being persecuted for your faith. After all, your bible tells you that you will be rewarded for it, so of course you look for it everywhere.

Gee, and yet with ALL the numerous people supporting your side, not one of them has been able to establish 1 negative social impact, not 1 economic impact, not one health impact, and not one evolutionary consequence. NOT ONE.

Perhaps you can be the celebrity de jour for your kind. Please Fearless Contrarian, please present us with the Top 5 of these impacts and consequences.

What's with the name change? Did you think for a second that your juvenile sloganeering wouldn't be recognizable?

Remember, boys and girls, if you call someone a bigot and a hater, then you're not celebrating diverse points of view.

Why same-sex marriage is harmful from a secular perspective
It Imposes Its Acceptance on All Society
By legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the State becomes the official and active promoter of anti-evolutionary sexual behavior. The State calls on public officials to officiate at the new civil ceremony, orders public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punishes any state employee who expresses disapproval.
In the private sphere, objecting parents will see their children exposed more than ever to this new, alternative lifestyle and children will be socialized and encouraged to act against their primal procreative instincts.
In every situation where marriage affects society, the State will expect heterosexuals and all people of good will to betray their biological inhibitions by condoning, through silence or act, an attack on the natural order and evolution.
Since homosexual behavior threatens the genetic progression and continuity of humanity, society should be very cautious to normalize and institutionalize it as a healthy alternative lifestyle.
Hilarious. According to this assclown, homosexuals are going to prevent everyone else from procreating and homosexuals are going to prevent science from boosting fertility!!! All the while, we only make up less then 2% of the population according to these idiots!! Who knew we were so powerful and influential?!!!!!

Those who throw dirt and cast stones at others would be wise to contemplate this little story. Are you hurting as intended? Or are you helping?

The story is told of an old jackass on a farm. For years he had worked the farm without giving too much trouble (For a jackass.). One day, not paying attention, he falls into a hole. The farmer hears the commotion, and finds the old jackass in deep trouble. After pondering the situation, he decides the jackass is too old to be much help anymore. And besides that, the hole needs to be filled anyway. So the farmer gets some help (There are always people willing to throw dirt.), and begins to fill the hole. Now this may be just an old jackass, but with each shovel full, the jackass shook the dirt off, and stepped up a little more. Just some thoughts for any jackass in a deep hole with lots of dirt being thrown.

I never said "Not believing in your beliefs" has anything to do with intolerance. Show me a post where I said that? Why do you lie so much? Constantly bashing and blaming those that do have deeper beliefs then your puddle of crud theory is intolerance. I'm not looking to be persecuted, I doubt too many others welcome it, I doubt the Catholic Priest beheaded in Syria (by some of Obama supported rebels) was looking for it. How should a True God reward him? Once again, Thanks proving the prediction from the Bible correct.

Yes. It's a very simple concept really. You tell someone to enjoy a place, you must think that place exists. Hope that helps. Always ask.
