That would make you after pointing out the obvious. In the future please include all “sexualities” except hetero in any comment where I mention homosexuals. At least the ones that don’t have victims.

<quoted text>Are you not aware of the legal concept with in marriage law, known as the presumption of paternity? Apparently not.
http://singleparents.about.com/od/glossary/g/...
In many states, whenever a child is born to a married couple, the husband is automatically presumed to be the father. This is know as the "presumption of paternity."
Some states even take the presumption of paternity one step further by not allowing a man to disprove biological paternity through DNA. As a result, some men are forced to pay child support for children they have not biologically fathered.

I asked you why you took this left turn off the highway and onto a dirt road and your response was to drive off further into the woods. Thanks!

<quoted text>Too bad it didn't pick a smarter husband for your wife. If you actually comprehended what I wrote, you would understand the state places restrictions on the "partner of one's choosing". It states who you can, and cannot, legally marry.
.
Actually, if you could word your replies a wee bit better things would be easier. You claim the state states who I can marry. Does that mean they get the specifics, like it must be Betty, the woman two doors down? Wait wait, don’t answer. First tell me which state. Then, is it Billy or Billie that I have to marry?
Pietro Armando wrote:
<quoted text>"According to the state, that "partner of one's choosing" is still dicated by the state, legally that is. The state determines from what categories, one may choose, or not choose. A man may wish his brother to be his "partner of one's choosing", but the state's says "no bennies for you"! If its okay for opposite sex first cousins to marry, but not siblings because of the possibilty of sexual reproduction, why would such a prohibition be appled to same sex siblings who want to marry, or perhaps just get the bennies?"
.
Is this more wandering down the toilet that is your mind?

<quoted text>As long as it conforms to how they define marriage. That's it.
Who are “they?” Tennessee? Maryland? The Klan? A group of men all named Fred?

<quoted text>He does have a good point! You guys are relentless, you all go at this none stop all day and all night. The only reason I'm here is because the weather has been crappy and I don't have anything better to do at the moment. But seriously how many times can you guys repeat yourselves over and over again on how you feel about the topic? And lose sleep on it at that! I think you all have said what you needed to say, maybe now you should go out and live your lives, no matter what is done or said there are people who will always be against ssm and there is nothing you can do to change their minds if they are set on it, even then you shouldn't care, and vice versa, there is nothing that can be said to prove to a gay man that his life is wrong. Give it a rest people!
Relax toots.

All of my excellent work was deleted today on all threads, shadow banned! I can always tell pretty quickly because the bad judge-its on my posts stop.

Prop 8 does not mention space aliens. It only mentions monogamy and opposite sex marriage, making them the only marriages allowed. In other words, no same sex, no poly. It's a simple concept really.
Regardless of how illegal marrying a space alien was before prop 8, Prop 8 made marrying a space alien that isn’t a man or woman even MORE ILLEGAL than it was before

( Note: more illegal is a new legal term coined by the new Poly/Space Alien consortium, we have now more than doubled the size of the constituency )

So, you have walked the streets asking strangers if they think that gay people should have sex with other gay people, or with straight people?

How often do you do this?

And most people REALLY think that gay folks should only have sex with only straight folks?

Sounds absurd.

Once again the glass door swings open and shut again.

Glendora, California hired these fools Inter-Con to handle parking issues through out Glendora, the money hungry city council only managed to stir up a hornets nest of public resentment.

The only person's to blame for the huge loss of tax and coffer monies is the city council and Chris Jeffers and his hoodlum friends.

No. Prop 8 didn't mention space aliens marriage dummy.

It only mentioned ONE man and ONE woman marriage. Effectively banning BOTH polygamy and same sex marriage. You know it banned them EQUALLY.

Hope I simplified it enough for you, but it is a very simple concept. I'm very surprised your superoir brain cannot grasp it.

Do you know the percentages of straight men who do their wives and girlfriends up the butt, Jizzy?

Your sidekick Old SniffsButt Billy keeps careful track of these numbers. As does the awesome and wonderful Rose_NoHo. Consult them. Be informed!

<quoted text>Polygamy was already illegal. Prop 8 could not possibly make it more illegal, you cant make something double-illegal. Prop 8 removed/ made an existing right illegal based upon the gender of same sex marriage couples. Two men or two women cant marry each other, because they are the same sex. DUH, read the damn lawsuit.
If the other laws against poly were repealed but prop 8 was still in force would polygamy be allowed in California Jizzy?

Just what don't you understand about "ONE man ONE woman"?

It's a very simple concept really, prop 8 discriminates against polygamy the same as it does against SSM. You know, EQUALLY. As in marriage EQUALITY.

Please try to grasp this simple concept.

Hope that helps dummy.
