What exactly does Global Warming and Al Gore have to do with Same-Sex Couples having the right to marry? My guess is ABSOLUTELY nothing!!!
You are correct, but it was a response to the brainwashed idiot called wat of something. The funny thing is people like you that think this is the forum that will decide gay marriage, you do know that it's meaningless, that topix decides nothing, right?

Actually, my wife is ONLY married to me......if she had still been married to someone else.....we'd not have been able to legally married as that would have made one of us a bigamist.....which is illegal.
Don't ya ever get tired of being wrong? or does it simply just come natural to ya?

Are you 12?
"most of the countries that have same sex marriage are in the Netherlands"
Four countries make up the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Of the four, only the Netherlands itself performs same sex marriages. The other three recognize them but do not perform them.
Other nations that perform them:
Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Iceland, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden.
Other statuses offer varying legal benefits of marriage and are available to same-sex couples in: Andorra, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Slovenia, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Uruguay.
Now please go to school, get an education... and after reading your last sentence - you should consider changing both parts of your screen name.
Why not go to one of those nations and do your thing????

Hey homosexuality exists not just in humans but many other species of animals. There are even some reptilians who can breed with the same sex and produce children. If it accrues in nature it's natural.
Also being gay is NOT A CHOICE! I was BORN THIS WAY! Did you CHOOSE to be straight? Why would people choose to go though so much discrimination?
You are trying to force it on everyone. You are not a reptile. 2 gay guys produce nothing but a lot of crap. It occurs rarely in nature and what occurs in nature doesn't mean humans are to imitate it. You chose that way because that is what makes you happy, doesn't mean you have to marry.

As for my wife.....again....you know nothing of her life......so, keep looking like the jackazz you are.
This thread is neither about my personal life or my wife's......but it does have something to do with the right to marry for Same-Sex Couples in California.
Do try to stay on topic.........it won't make you look so foolish!!!

<quoted text>You are right, she is a troll. The Loving v. Virginia case was about Vriginia trying to take a right to marry, that the Lovings had under the definition of marriage. It was Virginia who wished to take away the right that all citizens had and which were guaranteed to all freed slaves, as well.
Gays are generally more racist than the general public, and they hate Black people and if gays could, they would take away all rights given to black and hold it hostage until gays are given the right to have sex with and marry 12 year old kids.
That is a misinformed and vulgar post. Childish humor or stupidity..your choice.

Well, let us see, I exist, ergo the basis for identity. The fact that you decided to say this, rather than respond with a rational or factually supported argument speaks more to the fundamental lack of rational foundation of your argument than anything else.

I don't choose anything because I was born this way. And how would you feel if heterosexual marriages were banned? How would that make you feel? Not being allowed to marry someone of the opposite sex? Fair is fair. If gays can't marry someone of the same sex than heterosexuals shouldn't be allowed to marry someone of the opposite sex. Than everyone would be equal in being discriminated.

IMO he is the sexual orientation God made him to be, same as you are the sexual orientation God made you to be.
That simply makes him a person and you a person, being who God made you and him to be.

Do you find it interesting that they attack the judge, because they lack the mental capacity to effectively attack the decision?

VERY interesting. What will the divorce court do without a man to pay for it? There will be two poor suffering dears without a man to blame!

They'll figure out a way to make men pay for it, don't worry. YUK!YUK!YUK!

The word REPUBLIC means without a king.
That's it. It has no other magical meaning and it does not mean no democracy. How the republic runs is up to the people in it. The Soviet Union was a republic also. So was Hitler's Germany. No king=Republic. So Republicans, stop bandying that word around as if it meant no people's input into the government and they give up all their rights when they vote someone to represent them.

Look up on the Internet about a homosexual reproduction. There is a factor on the X chromosome which is inherited by the female children of gay fathers to straight mothers. A gay man will not produce a gay son, because the son gets a Y male chromome but the daughter gets the gay X chromosome. The daughter can produce a gay son with a straight man.
Your amature understanding of genetics is flawed.

Are there any gay men writing posts here that would be willing to write an entry telling if you had a gay grandfather, or a gay great-grandfather?
Let's do a little research to see if the family tree can support the question of where gays come from.
If the people who object to gay marriage, force gays to stay in the closet, they need to know that gays would rather come out of that closet and be able to marry the person they love.

more then likely, you were groomed that way. Prove you were born that way. maybe see chaz's doctor, he can fix you. It would not matter if normal marriages were banned, life would go on. I would not whine here on topix about it. The problem with you is that you believe what you want and not the truth.

Correction on that post. It would have to be a grandfather or great grandfather on the mother's side. The paternal grandfather would not be gay.

When did you choose to be straight.

The truth is that all people deserve equal rights under the law. for some reason people like you can't get that though your thick headed skulls. what did gays ever do to you? Why do you hate us so much that you would treat us like second class citizens?
