Have you come up with a rational argument for your position yet? Have you come up with a legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry.

The Aura of Sacred Science:

The cult advances the idea that the cult's laws, rules and regulations are absolute and, therefore, to be followed automatically.

The group's belief is that their dogma is absolutely scientific and morally true.

No alternative viewpoint is allowed.

No questioning of the dogma is permitted.

Religious cults reject anything scientific, unless they think it somehow supports their dogma. Usually by twisting it in a knot. Look at christianity, the biggest cult of all.

Funny, that's kind of how you regard your opinion. Congratulations on being a cult of one.

Feel free to actually come up with some science to back your personal opinions. So far, you haven't indicated any valid reason to deny same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry.

"The true rule, in determining to embrace or reject any thing, is not whether it has any evil in it; but whether it has more of evil than of good. There are few things wholly evil or wholly good. Almost every thing ... is an inseparable compound of the two; so that our best judgment of the preponderance between them is continually demanded."

Arguing that fellow citizens should be held as second-class citizens with less than equal protection of the laws is definitely more evil than good.

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”

A distinct group seeking to deceptively aquire special rights, at the expense of a vulnerable group, is especially more evil.

How is it harmful to want to avoid the typical stereotyping that society puts out there?

If a boy wants to play with dolls, exactly what is wrong with that? or if a girl wants to play with cars, trucks and enjoys the colors blue and orange, what is wrong with that?

I'll tell ya....NOT A DAMN THING.....it makes them well round individuals........and there is NOTHING wrong with them or their parents!!!

Marriage is in no way a special right. It exists in every state in the union, and the US Constitution mandates that states must provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws. There is no rational basis to restrict marriage to being between a man and a woman, expressly abridging the rights of same sex couples to marry, which would make such a restriction constitutional.

Feel free to prove to the contrary.

For that matter, feel free to indicate how allowing same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry has any adverse affect whatsoever on anyone who would not enter into such a union.

Because large groups of uneducated people always need someone to pick on. It has been like this down through history. Since the number of homosexuals has always been small, they are prime for candidates for the hate, anger, and abuse that would not be socially acceptable against any other group.
In other words, we are the "dogs" the ignorant feel it's okay to kick.
So I guess all those liberal idiots who are always protesting nonsense are uneducated. Thanks for the clarification.

The reality of the matter is that our constitution mandates that states provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws. In essence, it mandates fairness. The reason that equality will come to pass is simply because it is fair, it is just, and it is right.
once againyou grace us with your ignorance of the 14th Amendment and its meaning and intent.

Your messed up orientation has messed up your thinking. Do you know just how distinct the male brain and hormones are from a females?

What caring parent would experiment on any child that way?
