Same sex marriage supporters use so much profanity because their arguments are driven by emotion instead of reason. That's why they hate their political opponents; they have no rational arguments to defend their position.

Wow all these authoritative statements! So dude you think you know how it is. Well I just moved to Holland and you know what; sexuality doesn't matter, your character and keeping true to your word are much more valuable. Your Christian morality Bullshit is your own. The thing I find so amazing is how anyone like you would feel superior just because you fu(_)k a c(_)nt? Oh well, maybe you'll learn how manipulated you are. Anyway...F(_)ck you and have a wonderful Calvinist, Consumerist life. PS Hi NoQ I Did It!

Feel free to show any of my posts where I used profanity.

There remains no rational basis to deny civil marriage solely based on the sex of the partners. All arguments in opposition are irrational, illogical or based on ignorance, animus, fear or religious superstition or myth.

There is no rational basis for creating a "separate but equal" institution for establishing kinship between unrelated adults when a perfectly suitable one already exists: civil marriage.

Wrong. When I married my WIFE, we created a FAMILY. Get a clue, get educated, and grow UP.

And why is it every attorney who shows up to defend DOMA or SS marriage end up losing their cases?
You're a damned fool.

Well if that's true why all the hate? Why blame the 'gays' for the lack of interest in grandma's p(_)ssy? BTW - A little 'Born Blond #23' can go a long way (Samatha). Rather than being on here 24/7, wishing disease on a minority group, do some good for society, educate yourself. It's always easy to be a repressed hater, posting government disease statistics (of course you have to ignore the heterosexual ones)- right Luke?

You're a joke cupcake. Go save your own marriage and explain to your wife why your on here 24/7 instead of sex. BTW - You lost the 'cause' with 'No fault divorce' long ago.

Most people don't "hate" gays, they just would like to not have the gay issue thrown in their face every day. It's never an issue until some gay guy starts whining about how bad the rest of us are because we don't embrace his cause. After hearing all the whining, I can understand the "hate" coming out of people. It's a lot like abortion, I would gladly supply you with the coathanger, but if you whine at me about it all day, I might feel like blowing up a clinic too.

I can understand that somewhat, but most of the gays you might encounter are repressed, so they will be vocal. Think, if you couldn't show affection to your wife in say a: supermarket, shopping center, restaurant, movie theater, gas station, I don't know - until recently the privacy of your own home, you might think about it a little differently and I assure you, you will be vocal. Not a very good correlation to abortion though, It's really none of your f(_)cking business unless your the one carrying it to term. Yea, one other thing...Too violent: you (among others) obviously, are not capable of gun ownership.

I think your right it's not about same sex marriage it's about attacking Christian values.

I've got to say I really enjoyed the way Maryland,Washington and Maine wrote their laws, actually every where same sex marriage has been approved the laws read pretty much the same.
Here is the exact law in Maryland:

NR: not reported
Return to State Ballot Question(s)
Civil Marriage Protection Act (Ch. 2 of the 2012 Legislative Session)
Referendum Petition
Question 06
Establishes that Maryland's civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian couples to obtain a civil marriage license, provided they are not otherwise prohibited from marrying; protects clergy from having to perform any particular marriage ceremony in violation of their religious beliefs; affirms that each religious faith has exclusive control over its own theological doctrine regarding who may marry within that faith; and provides that religious organizations and certain related entities are not required to provide goods, services, or benefits to an individual related to the celebration or promotion of marriage in violation of their religious beliefs.

Why is that important? Because it destroys the true purpose Of same sex marriage.Now the issue is dead in the water, in those states anyway.

I guess that makes me a homophobe because if I see two guys kissing in public I'm gonna try to vomit on them. Women, I'll just masturbate to.

If you can keep from getting distracted she knows exactly what she is talking about.

<quoted text>
Emotional repression comes from either shame, guilt, or fear of how others think of you. It is more about yourself, who you are. Simply not showing affection doesn't cause emotional repression. A person can easily control themselves and not display affection all the time. Emotional repression is more about blocking emotions, and destroying the healthy flow, rather than the output of the emotions and expressions. This shows gays are emotionally and mentally demented and damaged goods, proving homosexuality is merely unhealthy.

A pretty package doesn't change the fact this is religious based belief trying to present itself as science.

Every mainstream medical and mental health organization in the US agrees: Being gay is not a disorder.

She neglects to mention that before 1952, at the height of the McCarthy gay witch hunts, being gay was not considered a disorder, and even Freud recognized that it was a natural variation of human sexuality. He also realized anti-gay prejudice causes harm. It was added based on religious beliefs and removed 20 years later based on science. During those 20 years, gay people were imprisoned and tortured with castration, electric shock, emetics, and lobotomies, all in an attempt to "cure" them. It did not work.

The idea the Islamic countries still consider it a disorder should tell you it is religious belief rather than science, being used to stigmatize a minority of the population in order to deny treating them equal under the law. To justify harming others, it is necessary to dehumanize them first.

And that is the point of this religious based propaganda. Dehumanize them so we can continue to punish and harm them.

Information showing promiscuous, unprotected sex results in high risk for disease transmission demonstrates the importance of encouraging committed relationships through the institution of marriage.

It also demonstrates the importance of reality based sex education including risk reduction and safe sex practices including monogamy.

“Research over several decades has demonstrated that sexual orientation ranges along a continuum, from exclusive attraction to the other sex to exclusive attraction to the same sex. Despite the persistence of stereotypes that portray lesbian, gay, and bisexual people as disturbed, several decades of research and clinical experience have led all mainstream medical and mental health organizations in this country to conclude that these orientations represent normal forms of human experience. Lesbian, gay, and bisexual relationships are normal forms of human bonding.”(American Psychological Association)

Wheres your proof? An experiment has been conducted where people had to determine whether someone was straight or gay simply by judging their faces. The people in the test were right about male homosexuals, but not always so for females for some reason. The gays in question on the photographs in the test had effeminate faces, which is due to emotional repression, therefore having expressions resembling that of womens expressions, and therefore their expressions changing their faces appearance.
