Yes. Many times you morons have tried to explain to me why "marriage is a (one) man and a (one) woman only" doesn't ban polygamy but you have failed. Because prop 8 did ban polygamy. And you can't spin away that fact.

Frankie, congratulations. Way to hold up your standard of never being on topic or making a valid point.
The reality remains that existing same sex marriage bans are unconstitutional, the US Supreme Court has handed those in support of equality a powerful tool in moving forward with legal challenges, and you still don't have the ability to articulate a compelling state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law that would render such a restriction constitutional and begin to indicate that you are not an imbecile.
If they're "unconstitutional" why didn't SCOTUS", declare them null and void?

No reality in your statement KiMare. Facts don't start with "Maybe". So now not only are you intentionaly sowing discord, but you are lying as well. Your god despises your behavior. Enjoy hell. Smirk.

The state of Connecticut, and now the federal government, says I'm married. They have more say in the matter then you do. To say I'm not married is a lie. Your god hates people that lie.

Smile, and enjoy your trip to hell!

No... It's not an idiotic response. It's a perfectly reasonable observation.
If you believe that current marriage laws should be dictated by history, then maybe you think that other institutions and behaviors should also be supported by their almost constant presence in history.
You just don't agree with them because you realize how absurd it would be for you to try to support slavery, war, genocide, gender inequality, racial and ethnic inequality, etc.
But marriage inequality, you're willing to support that based on the history of marriage--even though you KNOW that marriage has never been the same in all cultures throughout history. Arranged marriage, plural marriage, same-gender marriage, interracial marriage, "ghost marriage", etc. are just a few of the many faces of marriage over the history of mankind.
It doesn't matter. Our Supreme Court Justices, having had all the facts argued before them by the best attorneys and legal teams in the country, came to the conclusion that it is unconstitutional to deny federal rights and protections to a married couple who happen to be comprised of same-gender individuals. They found it unconstitutional to deny benefits and protections to married, same-gender couples who have children.
And there you have it... The law is clearly on our side here. It's probably getting close to closing time around here on this particular thread.
The decision has been made. Your team lost. We were triumphant. The definition of marriage (of which there are many) now includes same-gender couples.
Poor ol' long-winded queer. Running your trap but no one to blow. Try going to Chuckee-Cheese Pizza Time Theater.., lots of gay men there you can do.

You noted, as I do, that ss couples are a duplicated gendered half of marriage.
Marriage is defined as a union and an institution. The gender of the participants don't alter that. The union has still taken place. There is no half union dear. You really should learn how the English language works.

<quoted text>
Interracial marriage has been prevalent across human history with brief points of conflict.
Wow, there's a pointless statement. Historical prevalence is not an argument. If it were, women would still be property. It's 2013 plebe, do try and keep up.
KiMare wrote:
<quoted text>
Ss couples being called married has never been accepted across the history of a single culture.
Completely irrelevant. You seem to be hung up on acceptance. Your acceptance and the acceptance of other bitches like you is irrelevant!
KiMare wrote:
<quoted text>
Moreover, race differences don't affect the essence of mating behavior. SS couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.
More lies from KiMare. Your god despises your behavior. The "essence of mating behavior" is irrelevant. There are no mating prerequisites as related to the institution of marriage. And gays can mate just fine. That's already been proven. Your not accepting the true definitions of mating is irrelevant.
KiMare wrote:
<quoted text>
I admitted no such thing. I simply quoted the SCOTUS assertion, and mocked it.
Hmmmm. What's another term for using mockery? Oh, I know....sowing discord.

Enjoy hell! It's where all the other hypocritical fundamentalists Christians will be plebe!

That is exactly his problem. His opinion has been over-ruled by the Supreme Court and he continues to cling desperately to his opinions, trying to fabricate some "fact". And, being the fool he is, he doesn't even realize that not all gay people even engage in anal sex! So he has failed once again to make a valid point.
I have asked many times,yet he fails to answer.

What works???
Mating behavior sure doesn't.
This has already been disproven. Repeatedly.

You sure are hung up on other people's mating habits. It's rather creepy. One can only imagine you have a booth at your church every Sunday asking all the congregants about their mating habits, as if it were your business!! Obsession over other people's mating habits is perverted. You should speak to a counselor about that.
KiMare wrote:

Then don't engage in it if you feel this way. Meanwhile, a third of straight people on this planet, and many gay men on this planet, will continue to engage in it. Not a damn thing you can do about it. Know why? It's none of your f*cking business.

Nope. It's still a completed union. Your inability to accept that FACT is completely irrelevant. Not a damn thing you can do other than choke on it!! Smile!!

Lets see, in Cali, its legal for two people of the same sex to marry. Now can you say the same thing for polygamy? HUH and I am the moron. Well skippy I don't think so.

I simply point out obvious fundamental differences between ss couples and marriage.
There are two fundamental differences. Period. 1) The gender make up of the participants is different. 2) Unassisted procreation between the participants will not naturally occur.

That's it. Those are the fundamental differences. Neither of those differences alters the institution of marriage or is validity.

It is hateful when the intent of stating the facts is to try and demean. That's what you do. And yes dear, it is intended to be hateful. Using the word truth as a pretend shield when you actively seek to sow discord doesn't work. Your god hates your actions. We on the other hand just accept them as further demonstration of how ridiculously stupid you are! Smile!

I'd think the victory for equality would be "more than anything" what you liked, it is very telling that you'd like to rub detractors faces in it more than the victory itself.
You have just insisted on a tremendous social change and gotten it. Some people are wary of the change. Go easy on them. They are your fellow citizens, they'll come around, and sooner without you taunting and attempting to marginalize them. That just naturally makes them dig in and resist.
A great victory has just been won, have some class and be gracious about it.
When are you going to get it through your thick head, Gay Americans donít give a s..t how you feel? After centuries of oppression Gay People Worldwide are a force to be reckoned with and all you can do is snivel about it. Do you honestly think that the few hater mouth-pieces on this site represent the whole of non-Gay Americans? Your hate is shriveling up with you and your ilk. Your response in proof of how arrogant and entitled you and your ilk are; accept the fact that youíre powerless and impotent, and too lazy and stupid to have any importance or effect on the rights of Gay Americans. So, consider yourself slapped in the face and heartfelt f..k you, to you. ROFLMFGAO!!!!!

Since the SCOTUS ruling equating ss couples with marriage,
The SCOTUS ruling didn't equate ss couples with marriage. The SCOTUS ruling didn't state anything all about couples, it only dealt with marriage.
KiMare wrote:
<quoted text>
does that mean duplicate gendered couples will change to diverse gendered couples, or the other way around?
The precipice for your "curiosity" wasn't a truth since SCOTUS didn't equate ss couples with marriage, thus your question is ridiculous. Like most of your statements and posts.
