The Fourteenth Amendment also gives Congress the authority to uphold the correct definition of marriage. Section 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment states that Congress has the power to enforce its provisions by appropriate legislation. That is to say, Congress may pass legislation that prevents states from violating Fourteenth Amendment rights. Pursuant to this power, for example, Congress has passed the various civil-rights statutes. Now, if marriage were redefined to include gay relationships, straight married couples would lose the unique burdens and privileges that come with traditional matrimony. Marriage is a public act: by redefining marriage to be what it is not, states would violate the right of all persons to receive the social benefits and uphold the social expectations of being wedded to a human being of the opposite sex.
You just ramble on, ugly. Requiring that a person marry someone of the opposite sex violates the 14th Amendment just like requiring they marry someone certain races did.
And, you homophobes act as if people are trying to get rid of opposite sex marriage.

Didn't bother with the rest of your crap in that post. But it's clear, you aren't a Wiccan, why did you lie about that?

It certainly isn't a question of genitalia. It is because homosexual marriage is banned for either gender, thus making it a non-gender issue.
Damn, you are as dumb as you are ugly. And that is dumb!
What you said it the laws against inter-racial marriage didn't involve race because they applied to people of all races.

If a man goes into the JP and asks to marry a man, he'll be told, "No". A woman doing the exact same thing will be told, "Yes" Why? Because of their genders (genitalia).

How original of you, to post like that...But you couldn't afford me, is right, besides, as I support myself, you'd never have the chance to own me, and I'd end up owning you, anyway. Natural superiority would show through, and you'd still end up on crack, using my computer to entertain the masses.
LOL! How are you superior to me? I'm much smarter and better looking than you are.
I could afford to feed you, I just said you aren't worth it. If it cost only a penny to feed you for a life time, that would be more than you are worth.

If you
believe denying marriage to a relationship
will prevent love

If you
demand any committed relationship
has to be called marriage

If you
claim rights and benefits can only be acquired
by a imposition on marriage

If you
equate the diversity of two genders
with the redundancy of same genders

If you
desecrate the sacred tradition of all major religions
and violate the historic practice of every single culture in history

If you
believe a fundamental change to the building block of society
will have absolutely no affect

If you
think a law can change
the reality of crucial distinctions in relationships

If you
pretend duplicating sexuality
is the same as blending masculinity and femininity

If you
condemn some children to parents of only one gender
and deliberately deny some children one natural parent

If you
ignore the design of sexual union
to manipulate a harmful act

If you
violate evolution's law of reproduction
to equate a genetic dead end

If you
risk the healthiest human relationship
to include one of the unhealthiest

If you
parallel the sole birthplace of every other relationship
with one that can reproduce none

If you
dilute all these things
down to just 'a committed relationship of two people'

Then, and only then, can you equate same-sex unions with marriage.

Tactic 1 and 2 again.

Misdirect as she knows damn well the terms we are talking about are LOLSER and CONDUMB not Equal and Rights. This could also fall into the "acting stupid" category.

Tactic's 2,3 and 7

Good work Rose, I am proud of you.

Rose tactic #1- Act stupid-(not so sure it is an act)
Rose Tactic #2- Misdirect
Rose Tactic #3- Make stupid comments until opposition is tired of replying then claim victory
Rose Tactic #4- Attack the poster- scream Racist, Bigot, Homophobe
Rose Tactic #5- Act intelligent by making silly statistical references such as- Most people who have anal sex are straight-
Rose Tactic #6- Falsely accuse others of lies- when proven wrong through links to previous posts revert back to tactics 2 and 4.
Rose Tactic #7- Claim to have made an argument, then claim others can't counter the argument that doesn't actually exist.

I highly doubt that I am the first, and the internet is the only place- you have been called a moron.

That is probably why you get so upset about it.

Don't you owe AKPilot an apology ? For being wrong ? And you owe us all an explanation, for why you were wrong...And don't you owe Mike "congratulations, for correctly predicting the outcome of your false prediction ? And don't you owe me an apology, for lying about me, when you claimed to show that I approved of slavery ? When you didn't ?
But bigfoot, I was right.
Akpilot didn't say anything at all about my argument, and just called me names.
Other than that...

Ignorant dolt, you pretend to misunderstand, but you attempting misdirection, again. You posed a question concerning women not being able to marry one another. This I explained thusly. Then you posed the same question in reverse, after adding some inter-racial nonsense, which I clarified. Now, you ask a question, based on marriage laws. I answered those, now, Answer mine. Show where I approve of slavery, if you can. State your religious beliefs. If you can speak properly. And explain why gay people should be allowed to marry. Equate heterosexuality with homosexuality.
I think that's Rose tactic #2 on AK's Rose_NoHo tactic list. Misdirect.

It's funny that you "small government" con dumb think government should be in charge of enforcing traditions. Do you think someone who gives a couple something made of china instead of cotton for their second anniversary should go to jail?

BTW, unless a non consenting party is involve, and act can't be immoral. So, unless someone is forced into a gay marriage, it can't be immoral.

Well, stupid, if genitals don't matter when it comes to marriage laws, why can't a woman marry another woman in most states?
To which I responded that it was because SSM was illegal for men and women alike, making her posed question, in regards to this scenario, a non-gender issue.
Hmmm..
Prior to Loving v VA, black/white marriages were illegal for both blacks and whites, so it wasn't a race issue?
