I remember when Rose_NoHo was the queen of this thread. She could blather no wrong. If she posted "that's a red fish!" or "you're a straw man!" her fans would marvel at her intelligence and wit.
Those days are long gone. She looks real silly now.
She just doesn't get it that it's not our place to tell her why not, it's her place to tell us why.
IOW, even if I don't post for months, you can't get me out of your mind.
So, are you admitting there is no rational argument against gay marriage? That's reason enough to allow it.

You know that there is a difference between a person who voluntarily wishes to change gender in order to satisfy him/herself and a person who is forced to change orientation in order to satisfy society.
Only someone with a serous pathology would insist that another person change their orientation against their will--so that others would be satisfied.
There is a saying that might help you to understand the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation. Sexual orientation indicates WHO YOU WANT TO GO TO BED WTIH. Gender identity is WHO YOU WANT TO GO TO BED AS.
And you don't force either.
You would NEVER force a boy to grow up as a girl. And you would NEVER force a gay (or straight) person to change who they are attracted to.
I hope this lesson helps you to not embarrass yourself in the future.
Very nice.
Now, grow up to be whom you want to be, go to bed as whom you are, sleep with whomever you like, and keep it all to yourself......as quite frankly....I don't care.
Oh and btw, please stop trying to change the historical and the legal definition of marriage.
Marriage is the civil union between one man and one woman.

L/G marriage? can't be done.
Civil union between L/G couples? Sure, go for it. How about using the word "Gayrriage" to define it?

Why do homosexuals get to use the name gay when their anything but? Why do they get to ruin a beautiful rainbow and claim it from the Hawaiians? They should be called clowns. A clown is colorful and flamboyant . If you've ever seen a gay pride parade it's pretty clownish, a bunch of jackasses looking like fools. How can I take you clowns serious?
Why do people have such a hard time distinguishing between the correct usage of the words their, there, and they're? That's kind of clownish if you ask me. If it's not clownish, it's certainly foolish.

You guys gave us the term "gay". It's kind of like the words "faggot", "queer", "Nancy boy", "sissy", etc. You want some pejorative word to use to identify homosexuals. We simply took the word "gay" and made it our own.

The rainbow that we use didn't come from the Hawaiians. Rather a man in San Francisco, Gilbert Baker, created the flag for the LGBT community in 1978. It signifies the diversity of the LGBT community. Each color represents a value cherished by the community: red (life), orange (healing), yellow (sunlight), green (nature), blue (harmony), and purple/violet (spirit).

Where you got that it was stolen from Hawaii is a mystery to me.

Finally, you call us "clownish", "jackasses", and "fools". I could apply the same comments to football, war, dating, any number of celebrations (i.e.: Mardi Gras), getting drunk, getting dressed, etc.

My guess is that you've made a clown or a fool of yourself at some point in your past.

Your post certainly showing us that you're capable of being a jackass.

M..
Which one? Polygamy? Woman as chattel? Child weddings? Go back to banning interracial marriages? Arranged marriages?

Which form of historical marriage do you support? Or, are you willing to admit that the definition of legal marriages changes as society changes, and usually for the better.

No one is trying to change your marriage. Don't prevent mine.

It's not the kind of fame to be proud of. It's infamy.

So you're admitting there is no rational argument for gay marriage?
What reason is there to allow it? I'm fine as it is. Ho hum. Explain it better.

No need, you keep proving it over and over. Besides, all they have to do is read back a couple pages and see for themselves.

However, the bottom line is this; Big changes are coming. Science is quickly dealing with sexual disorders. Transgendered can be fixed. Now they may be able to address homosexuality and bi-sexuality before birth with epi-genetics. In a decade, this could all have been a pointless exercise of futility.

Either way, it will be futile.
