......Take a real long look at the U.S. map. 31 states and 10 more coming up soon. That includes California's Proposition 8. The vast majority of the American people and states know that going against Mother Nature has never been associated with American slavery, a totally different issue. Americans, religious and secular, are not fools.
You have been riding this horse an awful lot the last couple of days, perhaps no one has told you that amendments to state constitutions can be and have been overturned when they are found to be in violation of rights guaranteed by the US Constitution? Maybe you didn't know that the case of Loving v Virginia took the constitutional legs out from under 7 amendments states had enacted to prevent interracial marriage from being "forced" on them? Or that amendments to state constitutions that dis the Gay folk can be overturned too? Look up the case of Romer v Evans if you don't believe me. As for all those amendments, if the people don't find the wisdom to repeal them, then the courts will dismantle them in their place. Those states which have enacted amendments which deny any and all legal recognition of the rights of same sex couples will be the first to sink, the rest will be dragged down in their wake.

2. Takes one to know one, right?
3. I face/faced my defects. You are afraid to face yours. I think that is really stupid.
You lack truth like the Mojave Desert lacks water. I never saw any truth in any of your rants or I'd be agreeing with them.

Help??

LOL!!!

Takes one to know one?? No...it's about the ability to tell right and wrong. If I saw some bozo shooting little puppy dogs in his front yard with a shotgun I'd stop him too but it didn't take being a canine to figure out what action to take moron.

My defects??? I don't use 'spellcheck' in here for one which no doubt causes some to up their Excedrine usage. My wife says I dress like I shop at Ross so I have to clean that up. I stay up too late. Helll...I have a lot of defects Junior and I face them but none of those defects include being a certified nutter who needs a typed letter to walk the streets of my neighborhood like you...LOL!!!

You can stare at whatever you want Einstein. We're not talking about the eradication of polio here but the existance of a basic right a group of individuals who happen to be gay wish to possess - marriage.

I wasn't for gay marriage either until I actually placed thought into what it was and only then did I personally determine gays should have the freedom to marry the adult of their choice.

If I can come to that conclusion you better believe others will. You do have a large grouping whom are against gay marriage primarily on a religious format but guess what Junior....religion is not supposed to dictate the freedoms of American citizens....it's un-Consitutional and will be argued as such.

It's not done yet, nationwide marriage, but it's my firm belief it will take place. It's your belief it will be stamped out.

Good luck.

Outstanding post! You've made excellent points and with respect for everyone. This is what wins people over, not the usual disrespect from both sides most often found on this thread. Thank you for a very refreshing post.
Rick appreciates your approval....especially when it's like someone giving congradulations to a neighbor for building the addition to his house when your input during that time was to continue calling the permit department with false information in order to stop the build.

You're such a hypocrite it's sickening...LOL!!!

And what's hilarious is that you refuse to acknowledge it.

Hey jackass....if you're really for gays marrying why not lay out some comment to those in this forum against it????

The Mojave Desert thrives with little water. it's natural. Does it make a difference what kind of gun might be used in shooting the puppy dogs? How would you stop him? would if it was a female or a homosexual? Would you throw yourself in front of the puppy dogs? You wife sounds stupid like you, it's now where you buy clothes, it's what you buy. So your defects are that you have the size of junior? How sad. LOL!!!

Do you actually think this classifies as a rational argument?

Can you actually indicate any legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples the right to marry that would make such a restriction constitutional?

BTW...it was a shotgun...like I mentioned in the post DUMBASS.

"would if it was a female or a homosexual?"- Wouldn't matter DUMBASS.

"it's now where you buy clothes, it's what you buy." - WTF???

My defects are that I have the size of a junior???- There is no clothing size of 'junior' in men's clothes or anywhere else that I'm aware of idiot -

Quick advice - don't drink booze at 8 A.M.

No, I have never made a threat. I'm sure you have me confused with another fan of yours, you have so many. The Amazon rain forest doesn't thrive as the Mojave desert does, does it genius? I already answered that question, why the short term memory? pot? Nothing against gays, just want to keep the marriage the traditional man woman. You have a problem with that? are you a bigot or something? why do u call them "them". are u ashamed to call them gay? or homosexual or Lesbian? You act like a lot of stupid people here that this argument needs to be WON here. Do you think this topix on homosexual marriage here will make any any difference what so ever? I come here to mock how stupid you are, that's it.

Would if it was a stun gun or a revolver, would that change things to your story? Sorry typo, it should have read: "it's NOT where"....it's just you like to use the word "junior", seems like it might be another defect of yours.

You are a paranoid idiot and a class A jackass Dan. You make enemies against a cause you don't even have a stake in. I'm sure people wanting same sex marriage DON'T appreciate you.

Before the day is over, you'll be threatening violence again. Probably against me. I'd call you a bully but you're not even that you're just a punk getting off on disrespecting people from safely behind your keyboard.

Not to mention a California court has just also declared DOMA Unconstitutional at the state level but that is just a prelude of things to come nationally! As well as other courts in the U.S. also having declared parts of DOMA Unconstitutional,can you see the writing on the wall yet? LOL
