Like it or not, Joey, the world she is a-changing. Soon you and those like you will just be "whistling in the wind". No one will care. No one will pay attention. Others will smirk and shake their heads, and move on. You, however, will be stuck in 1950. Good luck with that. I an my husband will live today, and in the future, happy despite all the claims of how "unnatural and/or sinful we may be. As as soon as you can shed your fixation on how others may live their lives, the better off you will be. God love you, for I can't.

If you were paying attention, you would understand that the world isn't just changing: it's "devolving".

Yeah, for someone who is perpetually stuck a time decades ago, I would assume that how it looks. Not for the rest of us who actually live in the modern world. Personally, I am much better off now than my parents and their contemporaries were in their time. You go on with your feet nailed to the floor. The rest of us will move on.

Yeah, that's what people like you said when interracial marriage was made legal, too.

That's the kind of person you are and the company you keep; and you will be remembered in the history books with the same embarrassment.

"Gay" is not a race, despite what people like you -- often muslims -- claim to the contrary.

Where is that in the Constitution?
Sir, marriage has been redefined more times than you can imagine.

Throughout history, it's been a means of controlling the family's bloodline; a political vehicle for acquiring power and property; a patriarchal business arrangement; and so on and so forth.

In Old Testament times, men were expected to marry their brother's widows to give their dead brother an heir; polygamous marriages were quite common; the father of the bride received a dowry from the groom and his family; a father could require a man to marry his eldest daughter before allowing that same man to marry one of his younger daughters.

Exactly which version of marriage do you personally approve? And more importantly, to use your own phrase, why should YOU get to redefine marriage for everyone?

Neither is "Hispanic" or "Latino" but I constantly see it referred to that way.

Still waiting for anyone to refute how and why on earth 2 'heterosexual' men should qualify as an acceptable environment to raise any child. Talk about taking mommy out of "I want my Mommy!"
You need your head examined. All of you.

So what exactly is it that you are saying? That every child should be raised by one man and one woman, with no variations?

What are you going to do, outlaw divorce and make couples stay together "for the sake of the children"? Immediately assign the bereaved father and child a new wife and mother if the original one dies?

You, sir, might want to have your head examined. All of them.

Maybe not, but like race, sexual orientation (for gays and straights alike) is something that a person is born with and can't be changed, so I'd say Tony C's analogy works just fine, thank you very much.

Just remember, Joe: With every year that goes by, more of your kind will continue to die off, and more of my kind (i.e., the non-homophobic kind) will get closer to voting age. Time's not on your side. Deal with it.

And noone said anyfing bout banning divorce tex. In fact most divorces don't require child placement tex. It is when dss-dcf steals the child from the mother or father or when death is involved. Silly tex.

By child placement I mean removing the children from both natural born parents.

Nice to see you're still alive. How bout it? Can you provide me with a valid argument as to why a pair of "Heterosexual" men should be afforded the oppurtunity to raise a child basically denying the child's most basic "Human right" to have a "Female" mother? You can't either? That's funny cus neither can I.

Oh, wow. You're kind of an idiot, aren't you, Iraqi?

As anyone with an IQ above minus 200 knows, in the real world, divorce does happen and mothers and/or fathers sometimes do die.
Ask your therapist to explain these things to you in words that you can understand.

Anyway, thanks for the good wishes, hon. Now put your hands above the covers and go back to sleep.

Wow, it only took you 13 minutes to figure out that what you originally wrote made no sense, and to come up with a lame attempt to clarify.

I'm so proud of you, hon. You keep up the good work, okay?

Thanks for not providing me with a sould, respectable answer tex.
Nobody has been able to yet. That's what you get when you've been playing with fire here in America. The left wing decadent pigs have been getting away with it since the 60's contributing to and profiting from the moral decay of this society. Now they want to brainwash us into believing gays are the messiah and should be provided with a family that their own subversion sought to destroy from within to begin.
Only the devil.
