On a personal note buying that boat was one of the DUMBEST things I ever did.
Bought it in 1996 in an effort to impress the ladies in order to have them overlook the fact I was ugly enough to peel paint off a government building.
Blew two engines on poker runs ('poker runs' are races with powerboats) which cost more than the damn thing was worth to replace.
Buying an expensive powerboat is about as intelligent as buying a fleet of new Cadillacs thinking you're the new Elvis only to find out the depreciation on the damn things falls faster than throwing a freezer loaded with meat off the Empire State Building.
The old adage a boat owner has two highs in life, the day he buys his boat and the day he sells it holds true. Trust me.
You forgot the definition of a boat: a hole in the water into which you pour all your money.

It is not "help" it is a pension. Compensation. 60% of my highest 3 years.

If you don't like it, call your congressman. Get my pension stopped, use the money for gay causes. That's fair.(in VV happy happy wonderful land).

Correction.

You have fought for illegitimate privileges for gays, at the expense of women and children.

You will never be near the man Frankie is in a wheel chair.

But are we the first society to assert these 'rights' and establish 'laws' regarding them? This is a deadly farce based on arrogance and denial.

You are not going where no culture has gone before, you are following a course that has destroyed every culture on that same path.

Leviticus 18:1-3 (NASB) 1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them,'I am the LORD your God. 3 ~'You shall not do what is done in the land of Egypt where you lived, nor are you to do what is done in the land of Canaan where I am bringing you; you shall not walk in their statutes.

Please note that the word 'statutes' means, something prescribed, an enactment, statute:--New American Standard Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.

Simply put; A formal law of the culture.

The question then becomes, what were those old 'laws' that God prohibited?

A list concludes with three;

Leviticus 18:21-23 (NASB) 21 ~'You shall not give any of your offspring to offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the LORD. 22 ~'You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. 23 ~'Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion.

Simply put, those were laws legally allowing child sacrifice, sodomy and beastality.

What is the consequence of a society legally embracing those things?

Leviticus 18:24-25 (NASB) 24 'Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled. 25 ~'For the land has become defiled, therefore I have brought its punishment upon it, so the land has spewed out its inhabitants.

I know you claim these words are not words of God, but simply words of man, distorted by translations and time.

To me, however, they are then, all the more poignant. How is it that words of fiction expose repeated history and affirm your arrogance? You are determined to repeat the perversion of law, but deny the historic reality of it's consequences.

......
YOUR deadly marriage might be based on arrogance and denial, but that hardly applies to the thousands of happily married gay couples in CA.

And guess what? They are STILL marrying, and they will continue to marry.

Your rants mean exactly nothing. The law isn't going to change in the future, so you should learn to deal with it. This continued obsession just makes you look ridiculous.
