Many homosexuals believe in protecting male/female marriage too. Conservatism doesn't have a sexual orientation.
Even though I disagree with your position on same sex marriage I will back you up on that.

Your posts often state you have nothing against homosexuals, only same sex marriage.

Protecting? I donít understand, homosexual marriage does not attack heterosexual marriage in any way at all. There are over 18,0000 legal homosexual marriages in California now, It certainly did not hurt my marriage, how did it hurt yours?

Small time police departments hate it when they are found out and arrested for playing fast and lose.

The argument is that once we make marriage mean everything, it will mean nothing.

It is a valid argument until you consider that who marries who is self limiting. There just won't be that many gay, poly or incestuous marriages to cause that problem.

Poly and incest marriages won't hurt your marriage either.

The argument is moot, Homosexuals already can marry, in many states, hundreds of thousands are legally married now

I donít care about poly marriage that is Frankies obsession not mine. Poly marriage is not about to be made legal in the next couple of decades, religious fanatics following that path have made certain of that.

but for same sex marriage, it is already a reality, and it has not hurt heterosexual marriages one tiny little bit.

It is a moot argument

I was there just last year, you didn't see me? It's such a tiny little country you should have seen me. Maybe you just don't remember.

Even if I was never there, I've seen enough of you guys fly out of there to know you're a very gay country! What with that sissy accent too!

What did I just say jackass? What a dope!

You consider poly my "obsession", and "off topic", and not reality only because you fear discussing it.

What do you have against three atheist men marrying? How will it hurt you or your marriage?

Kimare, you have yet to back up a previous statement, so I'll ask again:

In which culture/s was SSM legally recognized previously? Still waiting for your answer.

Just pull down your drawers and talk to the mangina. Don't keep you internal lesbian waiting.

Learn to read, poly is your obsession not mine, I could give a flip about it, and nothing is about to change with regard to law for the next couple of decades

I donít have anything against you, but am informing you that nothing is going to come of it in the foreseeable future, religious fanatics have already made certain of that.

Not true with same sex marriage, that is a reality today, more and more states and nations are recognizing same sex marriage, and it has not hurt anyoneís heterosexual marriage at all. That argument has already been made in court, no harm was shown to heterosexual marriage whatsoever.

Did I say poly was your obsession dummy? Learn to read.

So what if you don't give a flip about poly? Most people don't give a flip about SSM. What do I care what you give a flip about? So what if it might not be decades? Are these your real reasons to deny equal rights?

By what logic do you insist on the traditional, arbitrary, religious and discriminatory number of two?

As I said, you obsession, I am not interested, and nothing whatsoever is going to come of it, as there are groups of people that have put a stain on that concept that will linger for some time.

You should be ranting at them, not me.

If someone mentions Mars in conversations about the solar system do you whine to them that they have an "obsession" with Mars?

And so what if they do? They're not allowed to? You go out of your way to complain and censor them or filibuster religion? You'll call them liars?

What a jerk.

No child, Brain-G is a smart and creative person, if you listen to what he says. Brian-G is saying that police put in regulations to try to stop sex in prison, standard. So therefore gay marriage would be one of their ways to stop it, young turd!
Police don't put in any regulations, numpty. It ain't their job. They're not even working in prisons. That would be the prison guards jobs. To date what we've got from Brian_G on prisons and same sex marriage is some rather odd claim that it will cause FORCED marriages to occur in prisons. When aske for evidence of these FORCED marriages all he's come up with are 3, yup, three, marriages in Canadian federal prisons since 2005! Not one shred of evidence that any one of them was FORCED! Yup, smart and creative.

That's ignorance and bigotry.

Some homosexuals are bad too. Does that mean we should not allow SSM? Of course not.

Jen Ewe Wine LOL!

Point out to me where Brian_G has proven, with valid evidence and argument, that same sex marriage will create FORCED marriages in prison. His evidence to date consists of 3 same sex marriages performed in Canadian federal prisons since 2005. Bubbas are just lining up to force their weak little cell mates to marry 'em aren't they?

I call people stupid when they've made it painfully clear that they are. Got it, stupid?

On their part, yes it is, their ignorance and bigotry has doomed your obsession for the next couple of decades at least. Not because I say so, it is the simple truth

It doesnít matter what I think of it, or you, you can rant and scream like a little kid all day long, it wont change a thing.

However I am willing to make you a wager,( never give a sucker an even break) that nothing will come of it legally for the next couple of decades.

Not because I say so, just an observation

SSM will happen and is happening whether you like it or not, and regardless of feeble comparisons you try to make.
