It's not "special" if you have the same right. Geez, buddy.

What special privilege would there be? You homophobes always argue out of both sides of your mouth. Straight people would also be able to marry someone of the same sex.
You were so ho close ho ho. You were right for the first sentence then just went back to being stupid. At the time, sitting in ones designated space was the law, then the law got changed. When the law gets changed THEN you can act smart for once.

Kind of cool. Like if they call me a derrogatory name like homophobe it's cool. If I call one of them a phaggot I'm a bigot. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

You can't even wear it to a political rally.
I hate to say it, but with all the nonsense Bruno spews on this forum, he did bring up a very interesting point.
Homosexuals claim they want to be treated equally, well this is clearly a case where they have the chance to and may not seize it by wearing their uniform to make a statement, something others cannot do.
While there are always going to be political elements to gay pride parades, they are in and of themselves non-partisan events. It is no more "political" than any other parade made up of diverse elements. My question would be, are they going to complain as loudly about the military color guards and other active duty, uniformed military personnel that are going to be visible at the Republican National Convention (and the Democratic Party's party too)?

Pretty pathetic isn't it.
Incest and homosexuality are closely related and should be illegal.

Correct and that same right we all have is to marry the opposite sex! So why is it fair to attack those that share this equal right?

I take it you're the idiot we're supposed to argue with? Hi. Dear, just like opposite sex marriages, there is no sexual orientation requirement for a same sex marriage either, moron. Just because you probably don't want to take advantage of your right to marry someone of your same sex (whatever that is) doesn't make it a special right for those who do. No more so than you're not wanting to exercise your right to marry a deadbeat parent, felon doing time, who isn't of your same race makes all those other Supreme Court cases the bestowal of a "special right". I'd tell you to think about it, but I'm worried you might hurt yourself.

Damn straight girlfriend, excuse the pun.

I would be just as pissed! In fact, you should not tolerate this defunct society one more day. You should stand up for your rights and no longer be oppressed by this society and denounce citizenship immediately!

wrong again ho

It is saying you can sit in any seat you want just like everyone else

Everyone has the same rules

Gays want to change the laws for them and we will not allow you to do that

If you want to marry a male then complete your sex change and do it

Until then you will not be allowed to marry a male
Period

Yes != No.

Yes !=No.

Straight people would also be able to marry someone of the same sex, so there would be no special rights.
Right now, women have a right men don't have, and men have a right women don't have. Why are you against equal rights? Do you hate America?
yes that is a special right as you want to change the meaning of the word marriage

And we will not allow it..........
