Of course, that's only in your mind, you know that, don't you?

What's REALLY amazing is the support under age 30- it's now at 80%.

The ONLY age group with a majority opposed are the over 65 crowd.

Tick tock.......

The only demographics opposed are the elderly, white evangelical christians, registered Republicans, and non-college educated.

Talk about a shrinking pool of voters.......

Hello, this is Fred, calling in from the wrong side of history.

You can kick and scream all you want, Cletus. We ain't going any where any time soon and you will soon be all by yourself, along with some cranky old poops, who think it is still 1955. It isn't.

Everyone's clock is ticking.

The good thing is the battery is about to run out on more anti-gays than those who support equality.

Mine should easily go another 40 years if my family history is any indication......

Unlikely, since I don't have HIV and have been married to the same man for 26+ years now.

You're probably at more risk than I am.

Skeevy little coward, too afraid to register. God, you are weak and afraid, aren't you? I almost pity you. Almost.

Does it make you feel better to pretend you're straight?

I have a marriage certificate from the state of Massachusetts which proves I'm legally married.

Now let's see the proof you're straight?

You're not really married. Just something to appease you by your state. If you were in fact legally married, it would be recognized anywhere and everywhere you go, but it's not. If it was legal, you would receive spousal benefits, but you don't. So claim all you want about being legally married, but in fact it's just a farce.
In fact I do receive spousal benefits in 11 states, and in Jun I'll also get federal recognition & benefits as well.

Just because some states don't recognize my marriage doesn't mean I'm not married.

Don't count your benefits before you get them queer, it's not over till the fat queer sings, and I haven't heard him yet.
I doubt Justice Scalia will be writing the DOMA opinion, and you really shouldn't call him fat- I think he's sensitive about his weight.....

He has a marriage certificate, he is legally married, no matter how much you want to throw a tantrum about it.

My wife and I (we are a happy lesbian FAMILY)have been married for 4 1/2 years. I know that just twists you, but guess what? Learn to live with it, and grow UP.

Nope, if my marriage certificate issued by the state isn't proof I'm legally married, then no piece of paper can be proof you're straight.

You'll have to videotape yourself having sex with another man which shows you becoming violently ill after about oh 30 minutes of anal & oral sex and post in on YouTube for all to see.

THEN we'll believe you're straight!

"showing WHERE normal"? GREAT vocabulary there,**JAKE**, or whatever false name you are using today.

Indescribably stupid and a liar. Why am I not surprised?
