Congratulations, you have a legal contract.

Sorry charlie, depending upon the jurisdiction, same sex couples also may enter into the very same legal contract that you have, and it is recognized by the federal government.
That you don't recognize such a marriage doesn't amount to a hill of beans.
Gosh, I've never thought of my marriage as a legal contract. That's so cold and, well, ugly.

That's what legal rights and protections are. Surly enough a marriage is much more than a piece of paper, however at issue is the civil matter of equal protection of the laws. Which is a cold hard piece of paper.

I know marriage, and you clearly don't.

You can dumb down whatever you want, but its your delusion, nothing more.

A shallow comment from a common bigot. Alas, you have successfully lost every last bit of respect I might have had for you. I thought you were a little more intelligent than this. I was wrong.

And we normal people are supposed to care what you think---Why?
Calling you out on marriage is more intelligent than your posts.

The depth of what you don't know is astounding. As it prisons to the state and legal rights marriage is a contract .

If you believe otherwise, your a fool.

You are lying if you think ss couples equate legally to marriage. Especially to the exclusion of any number or relation of other people.

I believe ss couples do not equate to marriage at any level.

You have mis-understood the Australian vernacular for "root". You should really attempt to be more worldly.
Root is a Australian colloquial derivative of rut.
Now, go look up "rut".
Actually, that one couldn't organize a root in a brothel. Or even in a sauna. LOLOL

Let's see: we have siblings, cousins, in-laws, children, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. You we're saying something about relations?

Looks like you have nothing but OPINIONS, and your belief about equality is irrelevant.

Hilarious.

You celebrate a bogus ruling acquired by deceit that opens a Pandora's box of issues. Then dismiss the results as 'irrelevant'.

Your focus on me only exposes your inner insecurity and the fear that people do see past your denial.

You have a meaningless piece of paper.

I've yet to see any "issues," let alone a whole box of them.

Of course not, you deny any being exposed.

The ironic thing is, you claim a momentous change will ONLY have positive affects. That claim alone undermines your position. The hate and deceit only confirms it.

I never said that. Every change has at least some negative aspects, even if making that change is the right thing to do.

So, what do you think are the potential negative side effects of marriage equality?

No dumb slippery slope arguments please.

Sorry, but equality under the law is constitutionally required, and it is a beautiful thing.

As far as the law is concerned, the couples are equal.

That you feel they are not says more aout you and your bigotry than anything else.
