But then I don’t blame you for the personal threats issue, I would report that too.
Gezzz you are taller than I am.. Im only 6'3" LOL
I used to let things people say pass in silence, but as I grew older I realized that silence is consent. I do not consent to this unequal bias, so if saying what is right is "mouthing off" then I will stop when they do.
Wow! You guys are so cool! So tall and all. Geez.

Also you stopped consenting to unequal bias so you "mouth off" and you will stop when "they" do! Priceless.

You guys keep saying that.
Fact is, 31 States have a Constitutional ban on same sex marriage, that is only 7 States shy of a US Constitutional Amendment.
Just keep that in mind, 7 more states and it won't matter what the SCOTUS has to say about the matter.
Bit of a race isn't it? Rhode Island appears to have SSM in the bag so there are 10 states allowing it.

It is funny, I have made predictions as to which state or nation will go next.. I have been wrong every time, some other state or nation speeds things up and slips in under the wire.

They are recognizing same sex marriages so fast it is difficult to keep up.

Another thing to note, is that California is in his “number of states”.... but California recognizes same sex marriages, some 18,000 of them preformed in the state, and there is no way the state legislature would sign on to that federal ban.. not going to happen.

He wouldn’t even get the states he is counting on, much less 7 others, you need 2/3 of state legislatures to get around the house and senate, which just isn’t going to happen.

They are desperately trying to find a way, but it is a lost cause, Same Sex marriage is a fact, and it will only grow from here.

So you are totally unaware of the over a million same sex marriages worldwide, over 120,000 in the US, 18,000 even here in California?

Here's how your barbaric community attempts to "straighten" kids out...

Gay Teens Starved, Tortured, Killed at Camp to Turn Them into ‘Men’

Three ‘gay and effeminate’ teens have died after being starved, tortured and killed at a camp that promised to turn them into 'men'.

A picture of Raymond Buys, 15, taken in April 2011 showed a skeletal, emaciated figure fighting for his life.

Just 10 weeks before, the teen’s parents signed him up to the Echo Wild Game Rangers training course in South Africa in perfect health.

In hospital, Buys was severely malnourished, dehydrated, his arm was broken in two places and there were burns and wounds all over his body. He lay in intensive care for four weeks until he died.

And now, the course ‘general’ Alex De Koker, 49, and employee Michael Erasmus, 20, are on trial for charges of murder, child abuse and neglect, along with two cases of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm in relation to Buys' death.

The teen’s death is alleged to have been the third among the Afrikaans children who attended the R22,000 ($2,400,€1,900) courses, which have been advertized since 2006.

‘I sent my son on this course to make him a better man, to give him a better future,’ Buys’ mother told The Daily Telegraph.‘I trusted Alex De Koker with his life.’

Last week, the Vereeniging District Court heard the testimony of a boy who had shared a tent with Buys, the Daily Maverick reports.

Gerhard Oostuizen, 19, claims Buys was chained to his bed every night, was refused permission to visit the toilet and on one occasion was forced to eat his own feces.

He also said he would be beaten with planks, hosepipes and sticks when he failed to carry out manual labor tasks.

Oostuizen alleged further he saw De Koker tied Buys to a chair naked with his head covered in a pillowcase, and would electrocute him with a stun gun.

Gender activist Melanie Nathan has said the three young men were all perceived as ‘gay and clearly effeminate’.

In reference to ‘gay conversion camps’, Nathan writes:‘With a little bit of digging [into the story], the gay reparative undertones start to emerge.’

Eric Calitz, 18, and Nicolaas Van Der Walt, 19, had both died after being enrolled at the Echo Wild Game Rangers camp four years earlier.

When Calitz requested to leave, De Koker reportedly told him he ‘wasn’t a moffie [gay] and he would make a man out of him’.

Calitz’s family was informed of his death via text message, saying he had died of a heart attack.

Afterwards, doctors said the cause of death was from a seizure, dehydration and found bleeding from the brain.

Van Der Walt was also claimed to have died from a heart attack, but doctors said he had appeared to have been choked with a seatbelt.

In 2009, De Koker was handed a suspended sentence over Calitz but escaped charges for the death of Van Der Walt, and the camp was allowed to continue.

Both De Koker and Erasmus have pleaded not guilty to the charges. The case continues.

Nevada is inching closer to overturning their constitutional ban, going to the vote in the legislature and they have the numbers, then onto the next ballot, which currently more voters support same sex marriage than oppose

California’s will also be overturned one way or the other as most California voters now support same sex marriage, but doubt that will be needed on a ballot, it will likely switch legally before the year is out.

Their magical 31 states will be 29 before too long with their "loss" of those two states.

Meanwhile Delaware, Rode island and Pennsylvania are on the move to recognizing same sex marriage.

Right now nearly all movement seems to be in the right direction.

I forgot to mention Oregon, a judge has recently found their ban to be unconstitutional... that one is just barely starting on the same path California is on.

Like I have been saying, things are moving so fast it is difficult to keep up

I'm aware there are a number of fake, imposter, sterile, duplicate half of marriage pretendies, but no such thing as a 'ss marriage'.
