Though that may be how DOMA defines marriage at the moment........it really isn't that simple.
So, are ya ready for the inaugural ball for Romney? or did ya have a change of plans?
Actually, it really 'is' that simple....

The election is over....I'm 'so' over it...

Sorry, but regardless of what you think.......children being raised by Gay or Lesbian parents have a mother and a father and they more than likely see both!!!!
It's no different that a divorced couple who have children!!!
Actually, it's quite different, but I know you don't like to admit that...

So, not going to the ball after all.......sorry to hear that, I'm certain the President would have invited you had he known you believed Romney was going to win.......lol!!!

And no, it isn't simple......because parents divorce and children may not have the same relationship with their parents as they did when the couple was married.......on top of that, Gay and Lesbian parents can provide all the things a mom and dad can provide......even positive role models for the son or daughter!!!

That's just it......it's not truly as different as you make it out to be!!!

Not every mom and dad environment is good for raising children......that's why we have a foster care system and orphanages that are over crowded!!!

As they still do regardless if the parents are Gay or Lesbian or straight......we only have a biological father and mother.......but we have lots of folks we call mom and dad!!!

Not the same. That's why marriage between a man and a woman is so important....biological connection is the strongest...

Do you somehow think that stops being true if gay couples are permitted to marry? It will not affect you or your marriage. You are free to spawn as many little copies of yourself as you see fit.

Do we have to re-invent the wheel with you every time you show up? Reproduction is not a requirement for marriage.

Again, as you posted to me in another thread....fertility and procreation are not mandated in order to marry......so, then why does it matter if a Same-Sex Couple can't procreate between themselves? It would be an IRRELEVANT issue, right?

And with Stem Cell research.....whose to say that 2 Lesbians can't conceive between themselves in the immediate future?

Bringing up the same strawman arguments over and over doesn't change anything. It's never been about 'my' marriage...it's an 'American' institutional issue...

'Experimental' children are neither here nor there. I've already explained that not every couple will bear children, but every child should have their mother and father present....you seem to want to slide past, go around, jump over and crawl under that one little statement...

No, I don't......but again REGARDLESS of what you believe......you can't prevent American citizens who happen to be Gay or Lesbian from marry the person of their choosing.....and raising a family regardless of how the children are present!!!

SO BAN DIVORCE!!! That is the only way a child can "have their mother and father present"!!!

But yet you use the fact that gays and lesbians do not naturally procreate as a pair as the reason they must be denied civil marriage!! A standard you do not apply to those heterosexual couples that cannot naturally procreate as a pair.

Heterosexual couples that adopt can marry.
Homosexual couples that adopt cannot marry.

Heterosexual couples that use in vitro fertilization can marry.
Homosexual couples that use in vitro fertilization cannot marry.

Heterosexual couples that use surrogacy can marry.
Homosexual couples that use surrogacy cannot marry.

Heterosexual couples that meet in Los Vegas can marry over the weekend.
Homosexual couples that have been together 20, 30, 40 years cannot marry.

You sir are a first class homophobe!!!
