Oh no, I am on the right side of history, same sex marriage is legal now, in a growing number of states and countries.
You can cry and whine and pine for the "good old days" all you want, but it isnít going to do you any good, same sex marriage will continue to become legal in more and more states
Sheer diversion, as you were replying to my post about the poly issue. Same as if I asked you for the time and you told me that Swiss watches were made in Switzerland...How about the post that you replied to, about the same argument covering the polygamists, though ? A few years ago, we heard the same arguments that you use against the poly's being used against the gays...And that changed quick, no ?

Filibustering? For weeks and weeks we have to put up with your single minded obsessions ( months on a previous obsession ), and you talk about others filibustering?
Is there any end to your hypocrisy?
I have noticed you hate most in others what is particularly true about yourself.
Yeah! Of course I remember your "Clinton was impeached, but not" schtick very well!

You used to go on and on about it. It was so silly! But of course you were just trying to cover up for your misunderstanding about the impeachment process.

But that was then. Now you're on to trying to justify your hypocrisy and bigotry against equality for people you don't like and failing as badly as you were then.

You're so stupid, to think that it is your decision to make, about what is an issue, and what is not... It is not. And people DO have the same rights, male or female. Why lie and claim otherwise ? Do you think that it makes you right ? It doesn't.. And you shouldn't make fun of people, as you are an 80% abortion yourself...
Looks like the abortionist got your face!

And stupid, a man can't marry a man, but a woman can. That's not equal.
A woman can marry a man, but a man can't, again, not equal.

Let Brian_G know that. He flat out stated that if gay marriage is legal, it will mean that members of professional sports teams will be forced to marry each other against their wills. I was just asking him if they would have to be on the same team.

When the majority votes in favor of something it's called a law. Funny how a couple of VERY liberal judges can undo what MOST of us want, to protect the institution of marriage. Guess that's makes me every four-letter word in the book.

Robert, Robert, Robert, stick your head down by Kimare's crotch and listen to me. When people VOTE to deny rights to others, that's wrong. All of these state votes will be overturned, because the majority doesn't get to determine the rights if the minority. That's why we have a constitution.

FYI, you're not every 4 letter word in the book; you're just a few of the more choice ones.

Well, one four letter word you are is "dumb".
First of all, we don't just vote on everything. We have systems of checks and balances that insure the rights of the minority are protected from the tyranny of the majority. Protect marriage? You want divorce outlawed?

The decline of the power of religion in America is what has made Same Sex marriage possible, and you call that off topic hypocrite
I am not complaining, I am laughing at you complaining about others being off topic.
You mean the moral decline of America. A classic historical process. Your bigotry blinded you to the real picture.

Smile.

Hardly. The law and the Constitution are being manipulated. Our founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves.

I guess wqe can put Holthaus down as one of those who would stand by and watch rather than stand up and say something.

So many have stood on the sideline and let more damage take place to the city of Glendora, California.

Spinless people will prase the dangerous and belittle the weak and unprotected. Just ask B.K. Holthaus he knows what I'm talking about.

B.K. Holthaus

I hope this is a step in the right direction to keep those who whine about every little thing in our city quiet for a while at least!

Count your blessings!

It means celebrate what you DO have and think less about what you don't have.

But, of course, you don't get to vote away the basic civil rights of other Americans without a valid state reason.

If you choose to try that, expect such a vote to be overturned by the courts.

That's part of what they were created for.

And, how is banning lot's of good people from marrying going to "protect marriage"? That reasoning appears completely illogical.

It's not good for them. It's not good for their families. It's not good for their kids. And less security for couples, families, and kids is NOT good for society.

Glendora is a nice little town, but your odd personal rants are tarnishing it's image. Most of the folks I now there aren't crazy.
