The first two posts represent, to me, the same spinelessness which makes America so despicable when that spinelessness is allowed. It's the opposite of nobility or bravery. It's also stunning that people are so very, very small: They presume that whatever "predominantly existed," in numerous contexts, is what must be "good." Sucks so badly for them that this notion is destroyed when we cast our minds back to, say, slavery. If only the antigay:

had

a

reason

for their hatred and animosity, but they don't. Their reasons --*N-O-N-E* of them -- hold up in court; judgments from courts which have sided (in scattered instances) with the antigay sound *like* them, and careful readings of those verdicts *show no final root cause* which *P-R-O-V-E-S* antigay contentions.

Only one thing is so damn disturbing, though, that it goes beyond everything else:

The antigay know *full well* every last thing I just said, but they lie anyway.

To me homosexuality is what makes America so despicable when it is allowed.

Why does anyone give a crap about marriage to begin with? Either way, marriage is for MAN and WOMAN. They're really the only ones that should be MOM and DAD too. Anything else just isn't normal.
And yet obviously YOU care enough to post your drivel.....

We agree you should just mind your own business and stop worrying about who gets married.

Trolls aside, the good news is marriage equality continues to lead in Maine, Washington, and even Maryland.

It all depends on voter turnout of the under 50 age group.

That's your uninformed opinion. Everyone has their own definition of "normal", and it's always changing.

I remember in teh early 70's when talking about "gay rights" was laughable.

I remember in the early 80's when talking about "gay marriage" was laughable.

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR GAY PEOPLE ?! ROFL !

Now that we are in the 21st century, what's next ? EQUAL RIGHTS FOR BLACK PEOPLE ?!

ROFL !

"Everyone" is lying to you.

The people that I know, all recognize human freedom and dignity. They know that some people are simply gay, and that this is a poor and shallow standard to use to excuse dehumanizing someone. They recognize that we all have the same capacity for love, and the same desire for companionship. They see that we ALL succeed better in life when paired with a person with whom we share honesty, respect and communication. They see no reason for tearing down other people, simply for being attracted to their same gender.

The only thing that is changing, or being "redefined", is which people are ok to make targets of. Save that for criminals who harm you. Save it for people who actually WRONG you in some way. Don't waste any time vilifying people, JUST because they're different from you.

I can and do. Prophetic if you will, 58-42. And that is being generous and don't you worry Sheeple I'll mark it on my calander to remind you. Remember, the 42% are mostly under the influence of something while the other half like you are indigent voter frauds.

I'd like someone who is anti-gay help me to understand how two men in love with each or two women in love with each other diminishes ANY opposite-sex marriage.

If the opposite-sex marriage falls apart because a same-sex couple got married, the real problems are the ones the opposite-sex couple are NOT looking at!

"Honey, we can't be married anymore. They're letting 2 women get married so our marrige doesn't mean anything anymore." How stupid!

FREAKS!

3% of what's posted on Wikipedia is true. About the same as what comes out of a gay persons mouth.


It's very clever to mark your account here so that your posts can't be tracked (I would do the same if I posted such unsupportable hate), but you're not the only one who visits more than one thread.

So what I say doesn't matter so much that you can't resist responding to what I say?

That's the beauty of America; people are free to choose whatever lifestyle they want.

AND we can force bigots such as you pay for it!
