So why should we support relationships that cannot procreate?
Why are heterosexual couples who CAN'T procreate even allowed to marry? and why are they allowed "SPECIAL RIGHTS" that my marriage doesn't have when they are EXACTLY the same as my marriage?

THAT is exactly why you'll never have an intelligent conversation with me. You aren't anywhere near my intelligence level. Work on increasing it and then come back at me.

<quoted text>Sweetie, you really should learn to pay better attention to what you say you are reading. In order to PROHIBIT someone from marrying the partner(s) of their choice, a compelling interest of the state must be served in doing so. The state has no compelling interest served by interracial marriages, prison marriages, or remarriages by deadbeat parents, but since there was no compelling interest served in their PROHIBITION, it was unconstitutional to do so. There is no compelling interest of the state which is served by the PROHIBITION of same sex couples, where there is against, incestuous, cross species and plural marriages, which you are completely unable to refute.
Sure there is a compelling interest in prohibiting same sex marriage. For one, out society never has. Two, same sex marriages offer nothing to society that traditional marriage cannot do. Three, same sex marriage will promote unhealthy living via homosexual sexual practices. Four, it will confuse young people what marriage really is and its function. Five, children will be deprived of one parent in the family.

They do. Its just that the fetus is not her body. That she does not have the right to kill.
But it's perfectly fine for the fetus to kill the mother, even if she is the mother of several children.

You must be kidding me.

It's obvious you have a comprehension problem and an IQ of 70. That's why many single women choose to have a child without a dickweed, like you, and go to a sperm bank.

This is what amazes me. People are all upset at the prospect of killing a fetus. But will send 10,000 volts of electricity into the body of a man convicted of murder. Shit fire killing is killing.

One, tradition isn't a compelling state interest dear. Two, that barely makes sense. Three, marriage encourages, protects and rewards monogamy dear, your "compelling interest" is actually a reason to allow same sex marriages, cupcake. Four, stupid, easily confused heterosexual children are an embarrassment, not a state interest in prohibiting same sex marriages. Five, sorry sweetie, the state has no compelling interest served by insisting that children have both a mother and a father.

0 for 5, keep up the good work.

Appealing to tradition, a logical fallacy.
Why don't you stop using the internet, after all, before it was invented, nobody had used it.

BTW, "traditional marriages" are quite modern.

Have you started having gay sex since you heard about gay marriage? How would exclusive relationships promote unhealthy living?

Rose's Law:
Morons with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?"
You're stupid, but by the time most kids are able to wrap their heads around an abstract concept like marriage, they can deal with the fact that some people are attracted to members of the same sex. In fact, they might be one of those people.
How can a gay marriage deprive a child of a parent? Do "gay rays" snap people up? Some sort of rapture?
