Nope, I just think that after someone advances a number of debunked arguments with no basis in fact or reality that it is OK to call them an idiot, because that is what they are.
fine. we agree, you are an idiot.

Funny, I'm not the one who cannot defend my position. It is you who cannot find even so little as a rational basis for laws denying equal protection for same sex couples to marry. Please feel free to continue to make yourself look foolish by continuing to make posts that are neither on topic, nor support your position, and I will keep responding with the US Constitution.

NO, you don't have a legal right. God said, NO, whether the sodomites like it or not. There is a Judgment Day where we all will have to give an account. NO, MEANS NO, and God doesn't care if we are offended and disagree. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, died for you, me and the whole wide world to save us from ourselves and the tricks of the devil or Satan (Lucifer). Our sin was nailed to the cross; Jesus Christ took that condemnation on himself to SAVE US. How precious is that love! After Good Friday we can say, as we do every year, HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN, INDEED! God bless you, gay person. May your eyes be opened to the TRUTH! http://nosamesexmarriage.com/marriage/bible_v...
Eileen,

God made them as they are and you have no right to judge them. You also have no right to presume what god thinks or wants. No one does. Check the bible sometime, it says eating shellfish and touching a woman on her period is an abomination too. IT also says its fine to sell your children into slavery in a pinch. Eileen, the bible went through many hands and translations before it got to you. It originated in another time and culture and it was written by MAN. In an effort to capture what they felt like was important. Also, when we take into account the possibility that it may have been added to by the catholic church in the process of deciding what to leave in and take out or that translations are sometimes faulty it becomes a text that should be looked at critically and appreciated for what it is: Man's best effort at hobbling together a codex of spiritual law.

Jesus said "Judge not least ye be judged by the same judgement". He also said "love your neighbor as yourself" if one can't abide by these two very simple directives, I wonder how anyone could call themselves a christian? Love one another! This was his message.

Awww, isn't it cute, the Jesus freak can't reconcile their religious beliefs with the laws of their country.
Get a clue fool. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.
Even your own favorite fictional book addresses the issue of religion vs state when Jesus says render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and render unto God, that which is God's.
Thanks for revealing your true motivations and confirming that you do not understand the laws or Constitution of the United States.
That's ok neither do you.

I'll have to take your word for that, you have not posted anything that would indicate that this is true.

Translation, you are incapable of making an argument against equality that could rise to the level of having a rational basis, much less on that serves a compelling state interest.
If I annoy you because I advocate for equal protection of the law, as guaranteed by the 14th Amendment, then you aren't much of an American. Or perhaps, you just don't believe in freedom?
No, where I enjoy a healthy debate. I do not enjoy insults. I am annoyed by internet-tough-guys. So, you arguments are certainly articulate, sincere, and well thought out. But they are laced with insults weakening your position.

"He was taking his hand, wetting his mouth, and masturbating," Sturgill said.

"At over 90 miles per hour, he had his penis out [the window]... he was masturbating... and that's when it got really, really bad. I wouldn't look over any more, and I wrote his tag number down on my hand, which I believe he noticed, and he exited very quickly," Street said.
