You don't know the difference between unrelated folks and relatives?

That's a little scary.

Oh and btw, please stop trying to change the historical and the legal definition of marriage.
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.

Civil union between L/G couples? Sure, go for it. How about using the word "Gayrriage" to define it?
We already have a name for it. Marriage.

See, isn't that easy?

So, are you admitting there is no rational argument against gay marriage? That's reason enough to allow it.
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.

Empty words... Prove 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.
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.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage. Why are you a hypocrite?

Rose_NoHo.

As readers to this post know full well, I love my Homosexual friends, the lesbians, my fellow dog lovers, and yes, even the Homosexual and non-Homosexual Africans. Even so, the honey of my own choosing has a cute puppy face. When he read your canineophobic post, he asked me to inquire of you what are going to do about it?

To my own mind, the issue is not those who go around spouting obvious canineophobic remarks. The issue is when is the politicized Government high court going to give my honey and I the same RIGHT to "marry" that our Homosexual friends, the lesbians, and the non-Homosexual and Homosexual Africans enjoy.

Wrong. Equal protection under the law. You know, 14th Amendment...
A man can marry a woman, a woman should be able to as well. A woman can marry a man, a man should be able to as well.
No, actually they shouldn't. Nature has shown us that 2 of the same gender are not complimentary. You should know that. There are obvious differences between men and women. You should know that, too.
iIt takes 1 of each to reproduce. You should know that. The 14th Amendment granted full membership in the human race to negroes. You, of all people, should know that, as well.

Will never happen, then they will have to return their "gay card". You know, can't fire me for doing crappy work cuz I'm gay, can't talk back to me cuz I'm gay,everyone picks on me just cuz I'm gay. Even with a free pass they'd be miserable with their own self.

You've been given plenty. You ignore them. You don't want to acknowledge them. You should provide us with reasons to allow it.

I believe that Karma was making a valid point that had nothing to do with those red herrings that you threw in, in order to confuse the issue.
Even allowing your reds to stand, these include AT LEAST one of each gender.
