Oh, please. The country is falling apart, and gays think it is positive that Republicans aren't talking about gay marriage? There are so many issues that are effecting many Americans every single day. Like the economy, the lack of jobs, and a president that totally dropped the ball on Benghazi. The Republicans are rightfully focusing on those, not the issue that effects less than 3% of Americans.

A perfect example of how the gays use ad-nauseum argument: headlines that constantly overstate their case.
That's one way to get lemmings to jump over the cliff.

Queers couldn't give 2 shits about this country, they just want welfare for deciding to become queers.
It's really not any more complicated than that.
All queers want is more special rights and more government welfare money because of how they say they like to have sex.

Just vote against everything a queer/Homocrat/Democrat/other welfare recipient would vote for and you're a solid American.

See ya @ the polls to fire Obummer in 6 days.

People should be allowed to gloat that Obummer let a queer die in Benghazi.
Stevens was a queer and Obama let the Brotherhood rape and kill Ambassador Stevens.
Democrats don't care.
Why should anyone else except the political points accruing against the Obummer/Homocrat party?

The 32 out of 32 States supporting traditional values is about to become 36 out of 36 States supporting traditional values established for thousands and years in ALL cultures. Leftists continually get confronted with humans rejecting their concepts of being able to change human nature, just as Leftists continually disregard the constant march of Marxist economic failures on Earth. Repeatedly doing the same thing with the same disastrous results is a symptom of insanity.

You aren't making much sense. Gay Americans support the traditional values of marriage and family life. That's why many choose to marry and form families.

Yes, there is a strong anti-family contingent in the US, but they aren't gay.

I don't know why you lie about it... the vast majority of gays want nothing to do with marriage and the few who do have "open" relationships, in which no value, nor importance whatsoever is placed on monogamous sexual relationships. Any exception to that rule is very rare. Everything about gay relationships is a lie, even their attempts at trying to appear acceptable and conform for some short time to traditional perceptions of what actually goes on in their domiciles. Marriage to homosexuals is an exhibitionist charade, having only to do with their distorted, maladjusted and unhealthy exhibitionist inclination... as is their destructive invasions of child rearing. Invasions of other's emotional space has to do with THAT, not any behavior pattern moderated through long term history, nor involvement in cultural norms, but only opposition to cultural norms. The same is true for any criminal mind.

Can you provide sources for your claims, or are you doing the same thing you always do and just making things up?

You are making things up again, Dear. stop pretending to know more than you do. It makes you look silly.

How many gay couples do YOU know?

I bet I know a lot more.

Yes, some straight couples and gay couples have open marriages, but, it has never prevented a single straight couples from obtaining a license. And they are not the rule. A HUGE number of straight marriages don't include lifelong monogamy, and a large percentage of straight marriages end because someone cheats.

And yet, NO straight couple is ever denied a marriage license because of their own ruined marriages, and the ruined marriages and sex partners other straight people might have.

Why is that?

Could it be because you know you don't have any logical or rational reason to deny marriage to same sex couples, and this is the best you can do?

Of course it is.

Yes, denying people the same protections for themselves and their families that you demand for yours, out of simple hatred, should be criminal.

Sadly, it isn't.

Yet.

And gay people forming families are "invading" your emotional space?

LOL.
