No? Then you wouldn't mind them knowing what you posted here, how laughed about their marriage falling apart, and how you implied that one of them looked like a man? That would be fine, right? Also, how about the girl is bisexual? You know? The B in LGBT? Sigh.
What the hell are you babbling about?

I didn't laugh about their relationship falling apart.
I laughed because you asked me if I knew a single gay person, and my personal experience with this once-gay couple proves my points.

I did not imply that either looked like a man.

What I said was that one of the gals abandoned the same-sex partnership to MARRY A MAN -- not a transgender, but an anatomically correct male.

In other words, she was no longer gay.

Bisexual? LOL. How is anyone to know?
Are you all going to start wearing badges so that heterosexual Americans will know not to offend you with our opinions and be prosecuted for a hate crime?

I like how you folks whine about "re-defining marriage" but have no problem re-defining the meaning and original intent of the authors of the Constitution who used the words "ALL CITIZENS"
I have to congratulate you side for re-defining the word "ALL" in the U.S. Constitution.
Marriage has ever been universally recognized as the union of one man and one woman.

Same-sex relationships reject that notion entirely.
Thus, your entire quest to obtain the "marriage" label remains illogical.
Until one considers the coercive state power obtained thereby.

Yep. An extremely oppressed and marginalized minority group was able to outmuscle all of America's, and the world's, most respected, scientific organizations. Makes more sense then how before the 1970s, scientific experiments, dealing with homosexuals, suffered from a sampling bias because all studies were done on gays inside prisons and asylums. Yep. Makes total sense. It tingles my tin-foil hat just thinking about how right you are.

The "pursuit of happiness" was framed within the "Laws of Nature" as established by "Nature's God."
And since homosexuality exists in nature (and has for millenia)...
The framers obviously were not referring to unnatural same-sex behaviors, which were punishable by death at that time.
That marriage will continue to exist for millennia more is the great lie behind the movement to deconstruct marriage.
As the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy has pointed out, "...once the judiciary or legislature adopts 'the union of any two persons' as the legal definition of civil marriage, that conception becomes the sole definitional basis for the only law-sanctioned marriage that any couple can enter, whether same-sex or man-woman. Therefore, legally sanctioned genderless marriage, rather than peacefully coexisting with the contemporary man-woman marriage institution, actually displaces and replaces it."
As it should. The government has no place dictating the nature of consenting adults' relationships.
Not all Libertarians agree.
Not all of any group agree on anything... that's the point of discussing it and reaching consensus, which becomes part of the policy.
Thinking Libertarians recognize this redefinition for the tyrannical state power-grab that it is.
Telling a state what it CAN'T do is not a state power grab.
As I documented earlier, the force of law is now being used to limit the freedom of association of religious people. In each case referenced, the freedom favored was homosexual, and the freedom disfavored was religious.
Perhaps it wouldn't be that way if religious people (and actually a minority of them) would stop trying to shove their "morals" down everyone's throats. But they're going to keep it up and keep it up and keep it up until they are forced to stop. And that's exactly what is happening. They've bullied their views onto others for hundreds of years and now that they're getting a little taste of what they've been dishing out, they're not liking the taste too much... GOOD!
The quest has only ever been about using the power of government to coerce religious believers into accepting what many consider to be immoral behavior as legitimate.
Oh, so it's COERCING when the gays do it, but it wasn't coercing when the religious nuts did it at the country's founding. Interesting...

So be it. It's changing and there's not a damn thing you can do about it except seethe a little then pout. God is NOT going to swoop from the sky and save you. He knows what "created equal" and "pursuit of happiness" means, and He also knows that the best way to "bless" America is to sit and watch while she works out her own problems. You're just going to have to eat it.

Well if they had sex with men and now women they are bisexual.

It's simple math but then you want people to believe that when it comes to marriage one plus one should equal 3 in the law!

BTW what was the ORIGINAL INTENT" of the Constitutional authors when they wrote "all citizens"? You keep trying to redefine "ALL" to mean "7568just certain people".

Again fuzzy math.

Your moral compass looks more like 4 week old used tampon that a cat threw up on !

Women have never been universally recognized as actual human beings, and as the equals of men. Thus, to support the 19th Amendment was illogical. Forcing the states to let women have the right to vote was coercive power. I mean, it's not like we're a republic, and that we actually have a constitution so as to protect unpopular groups and ideas, right? We run purely based on mob rule here, in the States.:)

How is it a misuse? Because it isn't used to make kids? Newsflash: Many people don't have sex to just have kids anymore. Sex is about way more than having kids. Also, different people live in different ways. Sorry life isn't a Norman Rockwell painting. Your Way =/= The Moral, Perfect Way. And they're what now?
I would further add, the idea that gays and lesbians are living in contexts that aren't linked to raising children are unusually blinkered. Slightly more lesbian households than not have children (and the NLLFS has shown that they're doing just as well as their peers raised by straight parents*) with a rapidly increasing number of gay men raising children.

The reason put forward by the conservatives here for legalizing gay marriages (over the current civil unions option) was that this label and structure was going to be a benefit to the families headed by gay and lesbian parents, and through this a benefit to the larger society.

*Actually, the NLLFS has shown a marked decrease in the rate of abuse between their tracked families and the general population, likely explained by the deliberate nature in which the couples elected to have children

Nah. His parents are probably nice folk that tried the best they could, but the guy just can't be helped. The guy's probably just too insecure about himself, so feels he has to be an assh*le, in order to feel like a man. I do MMA as a hobby. I see plenty of guys like him. It's probably not totally his fault that he is mess. Maybe he was bullied as a kid, or called names. I don't really know his background. Though I do sincerely hope Tip works himself out to become a better person, so he can finally be happy and successful, it's still hard not to poke at him. I understand where you're coming from. He's just over-the-top.

Really, I'm not sure where you're getting this idea of a longstanding historical model of marriage that mirrors your goals. Could you take a bit more about the history as you see it, ideally addressing what appears to be the rather diverse nature of marriages both in modern times and history?

The strongest argument against perv marriage is that sodomy and abortion proclivities of perverts are not worthy of a public subsidy via a marriage license.

In the not so distant past, local goverments and state governments would deny a marriage license for a variety of good reasons....

sodomy
elective abortion
obscenity
child endangerment
mental deficiency
STD
moral turpitude
criminal behavior

Organized perverts used shyster lawyer methods and fedgov bullying to eliminate the power of local governments to impose minimum standards for acquiring a marriage license. Perverts have caused the problem of many bad hetero marriages today, due to their deliberate crusade to eliminate minimum standards imposed by state and local government.

Perv shysters successfully manuevered to get elective abortion, sodomy, pornography, AIDS treatment and hate speech prosecutions all recognized and protected as federal civil rights.

Pervs often refer to their proclivities as love, perverting language too. If you've been paying any attention, you would notice that mass media never mention the word "sodomy" anymore. Mass media perverts refer to sodomy as anal sex or oral sex, perverting the original meaning of the word sex, a reproductive act. Likewise, abortion is referred to as a "reproductive right" by mass media perverts.

Public support of marriage is originally intended for the purpose of raising children, not supporting adult hedonism and licentiousness. Why should public resources support typical LGBTQ licentious behaviors such as sodomy, abortion, STD disease proliferation, promiscuity, and pornography? Why should the public support any LGBTQ diversity schemes?

LGBTQ are well known leaders of abortion on demand. It is fairly ridiculous to grant a marriage license, which originally was public support for raising children, to people that promote infanticide as a national virtue.

With all of the recent news of homosexual child molestation and multi-drug resistant diseases associated with HIV infection, it makes zero sense to support LGBTQ behaviors. The public puts prostitutes in jail for doing less vile things than LGBTQ.

Why grant a public license for licentiousness?
Wait what

You can argue all you like, but check out the new medical forms:

Marital Status - Single, Divorced, Widowed,(OR) PARTNERED

Eventually it will encompass all 50 states, and nothing is going to stop it.
