One of the other stooges declared it is impossible for a homosexual to be a child molester. You support that ridiculous notion. But here you say "a homosexual is no more likely to molest a child than a heterosexual" (and I agree with that). But it implies some homosexuals do molest children. So what is it? Do some homosexuals molest children or not?
And by the way, your off topic. The ratio of homosexuals to heterosexuals is about as relevant as a rubber ducky in your bath tub.
Little Winston's rubber ducky. YUK!YUK!YUK!
No, numbskull, the implication has been that all men who molest boys are gay. Which is clearly not the case. The reality is that homosexuals rarely molest. I'm quite happy that you think your posts are intelligent. However, they're testimony to your limited intellect.

But you see dipshit, you dishonestly tried to make that MY implication. I never implied that and you know it.

You sure don't seem happy that my posts are intelligent Winston! Are you being dishonest again?

You and your pal lides really do live in a parallel universe with rules of logic and deduction entirely different from our universe.
All the activities I enumerated have laws on the books that will send you to jail if convicted. All are a private sex matter. Swinging is still illegal in some states and has yet to produce case law in these states showing the state has no business proscribing it.
I won't even waste my time going though the others because your response is an ignorant one and as everyone knows ignorance is the most powerful weapon a person can use in a debate.
And equal marriage rights are not illegal. Apples and oranges. There is no state interest in keeping me from marrying my life partner. None.

And name calling is used by people who know they are losing an argument.

<quoted text>You are either dumb or a liar. Prop 22 was the law, marriage as one man and one woman. The CSSC pocked their noses in and violated initiative law, by not allowing a stay of their decision for the proponents to get signatures for a ballot initiative for Prop 8. When Prop 8 is upheld, we will go to the courts and invalidate those faux marriages because they are illegal. If we had not gotten the signatures then the stay could have been lifted and then the marriages would have been legal. So, Mom with no clue, shameful marriages were never the law so gays had no rights to same sex marriage.
Yes, equal marriage rights were in force in CA, and many, many homosexual couples took advantage of that. In fact, after Prop 8, it was ruled that those marriages were still legal. Check your facts, Bucko.

Yes, the state made these things illegal. But there is no state interest in making marriage illegal. NONE.

BTW My daughters are heterosexual. I am a lesbian. Are you going to blame my parents??? Two out of their five are lesbians.

Same sex marriage is not illegal. It is just not recognized by the government. Now who is the dumb bunny.

<quoted text>Wrong stretch grasshopper, Native Americans fall under the same "suspect class" race. The issue is twofold "suspect class" and sexual orientation being a behavior and not distinguishable or identifiable. If you would like a case student on sex, women, and their status as a minority group then you are really way out in clueless land. You just got through going through the 10% thing and women are over 50%. Now, wonder bread, go get a research book and study the criteria s for a "suspect class".
Question??? If sexual orientation is a behavior, then chidren are neither heterosexual nor homosexual until they have sex??? Could you post some information that confirms this???

<quoted text>You say that same sex marriage is normal for you, so for how many years have you been married to a same sex partner? Okay, so how many years were you married to an opposite sex partner, and if the gay marriage seems as normal as the straight one that you had then why did you suck it up?
27 years in a pretend heterosexual marriage until he left me for my best friend. 6 years in a same sex relationship with my new best friend and the love of my life.

Why not read the article and learn why they believe the state has an interest in restricting marriage to opposite sex?
And as pointed out, if the state has an interest in the sex lives of polygamists, siblings, the mentally ill, why not homosexuals?
Why should homosexuals alone be given a special dispensation?

It doesn't matter how safe or unsafe gay sex is. Not allowing marriage will do absolutely nothing to reduce those numbers so that's a bullshit reason to say no. Not to mention it's hypocritical to stop homosexuals from marrying because of STDs, but have no problem with heterosexuals spreading STDs and marrying. Do we ban all cars because some get in accidents? It's just illogical.

I never lied. I was true to my marriage vows. He left me. Now I know what real love and companionship feels like. I am blessed.

Because homosexual marriage is no more dangerous than heterosexual marriage. NOT IN ANY WAY!!!!

How could you possibly know that, Gay Mom?

Even famed lesbian researcher Nanette Gartrell's research shows 56% of lesbian couples break-up before their kid reaches 17 compared to only 3-30 of heterosexual parents.

Add to this, the problem with all of Gartrell's studies is she samples only lesbians from higher socio-economic groups.

In other words, Gay Mom, your personal opinion is as flawed as your parenting skills.

No where did the proposition say it banned anything,
Walker's ruling was such that he was able to personally gain by it, meaning Conflict or interest. and no where in the Constitution refer to marriage.
Prop 8
"Section I. Title
This measure shall be known and may be cited as the "California Marriage Protection Act."
Section 2. Article I. Section 7.5 is added to the California Constitution, to read: Sec. 7.5. Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

This is a de facto ban on gay marriage.
