<quoted text>Yes, the surrender argument. But losing a father isn't as great a loss as losing a mother, in terms of demographics. I'm not talking individual loss, loss of any parent is great and important; I'm talking about reproductive loss. Losing wives, mothers and sisters harms population growth more than losing fathers.
I've heard this argument from the pacifist left before; once the body bags of our daughters, mothers, wives and sisters come home, the will of the people vanishes like smoke and peace rules like the inevitability of death. I oppose that argument on the grounds of life.
LOL. You say things that make no sense.

Well, they should.
So, when are members of pro sports teams going to be forced to marry each other?

women get to choose the individual man, nobody can redefine marriage based on personal predilection.
If you respect women, respect law, DOMA and Proposition 8 were legally enacted law. If government won't enforce and defend law, vote them out for government that will.
Female soldiers shouldn't get to select which job they want, if they don't physically qualify. The reason there are now women in combat is because they don't meet the physical fitness requirements. Combat is very strenuous and forcing women what they are unfit to do causes death, illness and injury. Good leadership means healthy troops.
.
<quoted text>Keeping women out of combat units because the don't meet the physical fitness standards is just good sense.
But what about women who can? I'm sure I'm more physically fit than you. I can do a push up.
You are just a stupid, woman hating jerk.

Now, the military has separate standards for males and females, along with separate job descriptions. If women get combat status, they must meet physical standards, else the jeopardize mission, life and limb.
Leadership is making moral decisions; if the left insists on women in combat, then segregated units are the only way to succeed. Else, we're just self destructing by political polarization.
I've always written, there is nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality. Private behavior is private, I don't care about sex lives, I care about law and its change. Keeping marriage law as is, one man one woman, is just good stewardship. Many homosexuals share my view that court imposed same sex marriage law is bad because it takes from the legitimacy of referendum democracy.
So, when will prison rape become legal?
LOLSER!

That doesn't mean you can behave unfairly or neglect valuable assets; if the administration insists on women in combat, let it be in segregated units, for everyone's safety.
You hate women, we get that.

<quoted text>I support equal rights for gay people, just not special rights to rewrite marriage law.
What special right?
You homophobes always talk out of both sides of your mouth on this issue. Straight people would also be able to marry someone of the same sex.

Liar.
You hate gay people so much you can't even reason. You claim that prison rape will become legal if gay marriage does.

because I always write, there is nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality.

Also note, many gays and lesbians agree with us, bisexuals too!
Keep marriage as is because radical social change can be very bad. Very, very bad.
What? Members of pro-sports teams will be forced to marry each other?
You said they would. Has it happened yet in places that recognize gay marriage?
LOLSER!

I guarantee you, just about no one else thinks that
I was purposely using the people you would hate. It draws out your inner bigot very nicely! And it maked you very uncomfortable. Good!

But of course there are less hate worthy polygamists, even gay polygamists. Perhaps you'll tell me they have a bad image too? Not worthy the same as the dreaded Utah people? Or do you give them a pass?

I don’t have an argument, I am not opposed, I would vote in favor if it ever came up.
I don’t think all polygamists are bad, but the bad one are the only ones in the spotlight lately. You should do something about that.
It probably isn’t going to come up because no one seems to be working on bringing it up from a legal perspective. We just have people totally obsessed with it that wine and complain but do nothing.
Frankie is clearly just a troll against gay marriage who is flying under false colors and using posts about polygamy to clog up the forum. How much you want to bet he has never, ever made a post in a forum about polygamy?(He either doesn't care about polygamy one way or another.)

Well, except for the simple fact that the majority of gay folks don't engage in it, and the majority of straight folks have tried it.
And how would you go about identifying who is gay by this factor?
By this standard, the majority of folks would be gay, wouldn't they?
I think that means you are completely surrounded.
You're just making things up, as you go along, to cloud a very simple issue. Everything that Kimare said is correct.

Why don't you give polygamy the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage?

And while you're at it, why are you a racist?

POLLS: DOMA Is Discrimination, Equality Is Inevitable
http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2013/02/19/1610...
Two new polls released today show that the national momentum for supporting marriage equality continues.
The first poll, from the Respect for Marriage Coalition, found that American voters strongly support marriage equality, with 75 percent responding that the freedom to marry the person you love is a constitutional right. It seems clear that respondents appreciate the value of marriage equality, with 65 percent agreeing that it reflects offering “equal human dignity” to all people. And while 62 percent believe changing the law will have no impact on them, 83 percent believe that change will happen within the next decade. In sum, marriage equality is the right thing to do, poses no threat to society, and is coming soon.
The second poll, from the Center for American Progress and Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), further clarifies that voters see the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as discriminatory. The poll focused on Section 3 of DOMA, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, even when they’re legal in certain states. When the Supreme Court weighs the constitutionality of that law, the Justices might keep in mind that 59 percent oppose that law, with 62 percent agreeing that it is “discrimination. Though overall support for marriage equality hovers around 52 percent, much stronger majorities (69 – 78 percent) believe same-sex couples deserve the same benefits other married couples receive.
The infographic below features results from the DOMA poll:

There are no legitimate pools being conducted. I received no poll in the mail, or over the computer. Ergo, the polls being quoted are using carefully screened and preselected groups, designed to give certain responses. Now, if a poll is issued to every single household in Amerikkka, I will retract my words, but not until then. There are no legitimate polls being conducted. But there is plenty of propaganda being used, by both sides.

Yeah, and some Amish were just convicted, in Cleveland, of hate crimes. Time to abolish them, too...
