It's not like any other wedding. It's two men or two women.
People will be repulsed or laughing out loud. That's the reality of it.

It's a euphemism asshat. Just like inter-racial wedding or Irish wedding or straight wedding. The wedding will always be the same, only the participants reflect the adjective. It's a common way of speaking. Just because you are too stupid to follow doesn't alter that fact. The license issued by the state that sanctions is always the same. Equal in everyway to every other marriage.

The difference you just described reflects the participants, not the ceremony. Thanks for demonstrating as always just how stupid you really are.

Yes, a handful probably will. They are the same people that think earthquakes are the result of a man in the sky. No one really pays attention to these people except other people like them.

Really, the same? When the vows are finished, which one of these guys will be told he may kiss the bride?

So is the idea that they are somehow required to. Which is why every time you idiots talk about procreation you demonstrate how stupid you really are.

The participants are the wedding. A wedding is the joining of two people.

I find democrats repulsive but I engage them on the internet. It's called debate and dissenting views. Leave it to you to insult someone for being you. Too funny.
It's pretty clear you didn't make the debate team. What you do is called "trolling," my dear.

Yes, I think I have dramatized what is wrong with you and the rest of the right wing perfectly: Kids will be ruined for life by seeing expressions of love in your book. But incessant violence and gore is perfectly acceptable entertainment.

If we do succeed in turning the Rose Bowl Parade into a gay event, however, a much larger and more lively crowd will participate. You won't be missed at all.

Not to worry, though: One float does not make a gay pride parade. We'd have to replace all those scantily clad cheerleaders with gogo boys to make it a gay parade.

Irrelevant, and completely unrelated to the meaning of "Reification Fallacy".

No dear, your first sentence is a falsehood, and your second sentence supports my original statement, not yours. If you knew how the English language worked you would already know that.

Please find a dictionary that states a wedding is "participants", and not a "union", "ceremony" and "institution". We'll wait right here for that asshat.

Neither. Bride describes gender, not the relationship. The relationship is spouse. They will be told to kiss their spouse, or the grooms may kiss. And in the end they will have entered into the exact same union. Serving the exact same function.

Any other stupid questions?
