You might think that you are slick with that, but I do not dance, sir. I get to the point, in spite of any ignorance of the part of the libertines. 2 men or 2 women constitute a mismatched pairing. Not the point of marriage. Marriage is an institution for procreating couples to use in order to establish a continuity of inheritance and unity, closed to any outside interloping or interference.
But, bigfoot, sterile people can marry, so you are wrong!

Marriage is a legal contract, marriage is a right.

Skinner v Oklahoma wasn't a case about marriage, it was a case about using forced sterilization as a means of punishment.
Why don't you look up the case and read about it if you don't trust me? Can you tell us how marriage laws were changed by Skinner v OK? Wait, they weren't.
You really are an idiot aren't you.

Where does the precedent for marriage as a "right" come from?

Simple question Rose, well, it won't be for you.

LOL @ you, simpleton. Keep asking.
Like I said, you can't answer, because you don't know. That makes you the fool Rose.

I guess you can't answer simple questions. What the matter, hasn't you blog given you the correct response yet? We all know you are incapable of drafting your own thoughts.
Answer the question Rose, where is the check on the court?
I know you are dodging because you simply don't know. Why don't you just admit that and I could explain to you.

The "theft of honor" statement is in reference to the theft of the honor that we bestow upon a man and woman, who have gotten married. And, given the current assault upon the integrity of marriage, The married heterosexual are the war veterans. That's right,"...a title they do not rate.".
But gays never stole any honor from heterosexual couples.

Heterosexual couples had been married and continue to do so therefore any 'honor' you see in their unions is still intact.

Upon pointing to that fact your "point" about gays "steling honor" from opposite sexed couples is moot.

Your first surprise, then, "konbanwa" wasn't a bad thing after all.
Your second surprise is that I don't care how they live their "personal" lives, I care that traditional definitions are being turned on their ears, to accommodate a small number of citizens. If they want to be gay, then let them. I do not wish to see them legitimized in an official way, as they are aberrations. And to be perfectly honest, I dig 2 women together, who wouldn't want to be with a woman, it's the males that I have a problem with, acting like girls. One of my best friends is in the process of becoming a girl, and while I am trying very hard to not have a problem with it, I find that I cannot accept this. I am not happy with myself, for this, but I am honest with myself. I feel that it is wrong.
Many freedoms and civil rights are allowed a small number of citizens.

Their numbers don't discount the fact they are still citizens and due a full set of rights.

In your obvious disdain of gays I doubt one of your best friends is a transgender. FYI. I think you include this fabrication in here to but some sort of bizarre credence to your hateful rants on gays marrying.

The fact you see gays as 'aberations' as well as their wish to marry is your opinion don't forget and until you become Empororer of the U.S. it stays just that. The fact you're going to have to swallow is by increasing number others are realizing gays wanting to pursue the freedom of marriage because it's being seen as a basic right that should be given to them is taking place hence the increasing number of states allowing gays TO marry.

Marriage, or the pairing of man and woman existed long before the existence of anything remotely resembling "legal union". As well as the phenomenon of disapproval of gays.
So did slavery.

So was it that most cultures considered women secondary including women in the U.S. whom weren't allow to vote until the early 1900's.

So was it that a great republic based on democratic principles didn't exist until the late 1700's.

So was it that child labor was accepted until the 1900's.

-We could go on.

Because an aspect of freedom wasn't gained until later in civilization does not paint it wrong Chief.

Your opinion.

I see you dancing. Dancing around the fact American citizens...ALL American citizens are due a full set of liberties unless those liberties produce harm and as of yet you have no proof of viable harm gay marriage causes.

Really.

So in your view of marriage infertile couples should not be able to marry.

Interesting.

And as far as any contiuance of "inheritance and unity" marriage is non tangible freedom. There is no "inheritance" other than claiming citizens of this country shoupld be allowed freedoms including that to marry of which gays are...citizens so again any "point" you're attempting to make is moot.

The "unity" aspect is laughable given we're already unified as United States citizens of which there are gays in it's ranks.

Your rantings go nowhere friend outside of speeling out an obvious skewed disdain for a grouping of Americans you don't seem to care for because of your own personal reasons..

It's your opinion gays cannot form a family unit when in fact they already have ultiple times.

Historical recognition?

They've been doing it here in our country for some time now and look:

Again any "point" you were attempting to make here is easily stricken down.

The first was a surprise in the fact all you've managed to do is advertise your dislike of me in here.

Are you now wanting to make nice??

I'll bet my marble collection you too didn't know it's meaning.

And your "second surprise" is a blatant life. Gays getting married IS part of their personal lives you dolt.

LOL!!!

No on here is telling you what to think.

The only direction you're being given is your opinions should not supercede the freedoms we should allow fellow American citizens based simply on your transparent disdain of them.

This is Dan you moron.

And allowing liberties to fellow citizens has never been a fad.
