Brian, you do make up a bunch of toss. The gubbamint ain't deciding fathers and husbands are disposable. As far as the gender segregation bit, you're blowing things all out of proportion. 2%, Brian, 2%. Mountain out of a mole hill. No one is refusing to distinguish between brother, father, husband, wife, sister, mother, amoeba, duck billed platypus, etc. I'll still be my wife's husband, my mother and father (RIP dad) will still be my mother and father, and my brothers' children will still have me for an uncle. Nothing, not one tiny little bit, will change for those of us who happen to be heterosexual.

You keep making these allegations yet you don't show any substance to back them up. I asked you, repeatedly, to back up your assertions and you fail miserably. The ONLY time you've attempted to back them up you proved yourself wrong. That would be all those forced marriages occuring in prisons in Canada. Remember that, Brian? Nada, zip, zilch, your fears are irrational and unfounded. They're based upon allegations without proof, now that is unintelligent.

So, when are members of pro sports teams going to be forced to marry each other in states with gay marriage? You said that would happen!
Speaking of unintelligent!
LOLSER!

Gender segregation marriage can harm man/woman relations by introducing a new standard of gender prejudice in marriage.
You're forte is stringing a few words together in a feeble attempt to sound intelligent whilst being really thick.

Down with disunion and separatism. Marriage isn't for everyone, same sex couples have more in common with singles than with married husband and wife.
Of course marriage isn't for everyone. I know plenty of folks, straight and gay, that aren't married and have no desire to get married. That doesn't mean they're single, several are in devoted relationships. Which isn't the same as being single at all, regardless of the gender of the couple. Down with ignorant sloganeering.

Well, the deal of forcing the popes to resign over them dirty pix where he is doing stuff is just plain wrong. The koreans was so upset they let that nuclear go. Who knows what the koranians will say. This is nasty bad business and makes you sick. And tired.

Of course, he's not, but you are, what with all the nonsense about being in his head, which is about as off-topic as can be, even though none of your side told you that. Shows who the real real idiots are. You. And your side of bigoted haters, no ? We all know that you now rely on the same arguments that you argued against last year. And you morons think that it isn't noticed. LOL. Bunch of losers to now embrace an argument that you railed against for years, namely the definition of marriage as being traditionally for 2 people, when you defied the traditions to get what you wanted. So weak. And you know it, explain it if you can, or else, use non sequiturs again. Doy and duh. We have swapped places now. Now your side uses the argument of tradition to defend monogamous marriage for gays, and refuses to embrace equality. Keep talking smack, you dick-head.

How about married couples VRS Civil Unions???
Lets see if YOU can find out.
How about this. A gay couple, been together for 25 years. One is involved in a horrific auto crash, leaves him brain dead, can the other ask to have the plug pulled?????( If he is even allowed in the room)
Income tax, wills, probate, the list is quite extensive
You're brain dead. What is a single couple ? A marriage of Siamese twins ?

You have no command of proper vocabulary, it's "you're", not "your". Secondly, you make insults like a child. Thirdly, "snap" ? Really ? Speak like a man. You have us all convinced that you are a gay third-grader. And we're right about that.
