1.) We are barred from marrying the person of our choice.
You can marry according to whatever house of worship wishes to sanction your relationship as marriage. Legally, those you are subject to the same restrictions as any one else.
. You seem to have no problem with us shacking up out of wedlock. Many of us have long-term partners; much longer than straight people.
Interesting....I had raised that very same aspect a few times. So you want Mr. Right to make an "honest man" out of you? Uhhhhhh....oh....you're not pregnant are you?:)
We want the rights and protections of marriage for our own needs. We are in no way attempting to redefine marriage. We only want legal status.
Therein lies the conflict, or the solution. You want "marriage for our own needs"? Or do you want legal status? As an individual u have the same access as I to legal marriage. If you want to same sex couple, that's a different animal.
Your marriage would in no way be impacted.
Soooooooo.....that means what? As long as the law, any law doesn't impact me personally, it should be changed? You do realize that argument can also be used to argue for polygamy, or even sibling marriage. "Hey, why not, according to VeeVee, and Big D, as long as it doesn't impact me personally".
2.) States have, by way of DOMA and other individual state constitutional amendment, have made it impossible for us to marry. So, yes, orientation is definitely a part of the marriage process.
Not quite, you're still subject to the same laws as everybody else. Besides, said amendments, also bar polygamy.
3.) You guys are the ones who came up with marriage licenses. You guys are the ones who put together a whole set of protections and rights ONLY provided to legally married couples. And now you piss and moan because other couples want those rights and protections.
Yet you piss and moan because, plural marriage practitioners, want a piece of the action too.
How petty! How childish!
Right back at ya big guy.
One day, this issue will be over and done with. The only reason people like you are on here now is because we're breathing down your necks. You know that there is NOTHING that you can do to stop same-sex marriage from happening in this country. All you can do is flock to sites like this and spit into the wind.
Mainstream Christians have lightened up their attitudes toward homosexuality and gay rights. So have republicans.
How much longer do you think this can drag out?
How much longer do you think you can keep the polys from jumping on the rainbow bandwagon? It's only a matter of time for them too. Before ya know it, there will be no need to license marriage at all. That's seems to be the unsaid goal of the SSM movement.
We're in the military; openly fighting for the country. Do you honestly think that Americans are going to deny a basic right to people who are willing to lay their lives on the line?
It's not a matter of "if", but a matter of "when".
Bank on it...
C'mon, all together now:"We're poly, we're jolly, the gay rights crowds ignores us at their own folly". Actually that right already exists, you simply don't wish to exercise that right the same as any other American. In some states 18 yr olds cannot consume alcoholic beverages, yet, we all them to vote, marry, and serve their country in the armed services. I wonder if there are states that have a higher drinking minimum age than that required to be a police officers, or correction officer. I'll get back to you on that.

First you claim homosexuality is normal.
Then you admit scientists don't know what causes it.
The only explanation for that is political correct baloney spouted by the Queen of DeNial.

<quoted text>
1. How does your response answer the quandary of scientists not having an explanation for homosexuality, but can turn around and assert it is 'normal'?
2. Scientists do understand attraction. Mating behavior. It is why a butch lesbian dresses and acts like a man to attract another lesbian who almost wants a man, but not quite. It's just a major sexual screwed up. Well, it can't ever be a literal screw up, but it clearly is a defect.
Another limp brained gay twirl from the Queen of DeNial.

By your definition, Sandusky was normal.
You are, without question, the Queen of DeNial1
Smirk.
You think I'm saying that Sandusky was normal based on what I said? I'm fairly sure that Sandusky's sexual abuse of several children WAS NOT a contribution to society.

See the difference? Probably not...

That you would even suggest that homosexuals and child sexual predators are one in the same is OUTRAGEOUS!

Since more sexual predators are straight, religious, men I think you probably have more in common with Sandusky than me.

That is why you'll never be taken seriously here.

You are and will always be seen as a joke.

It's official the whole "big dig" was a bust and total failure! Sorry Chris Jeffers your crew failed again and you along with it. LOSERS.

News update May 23, 2013 - Corner moves it's team in, the city of Glendora has provided a Bobcat excavator with a front scoop and driver to excavate the backyard, that left and a smaller Kubota tractor with a backhoe has taken over 12:30 P.M. May 23, 2013..

May 22, 2013 - a news helicopter has been hovering for about an hour over the big dig area. The house in question is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, three owners have occupied this house since Robert Byron sold it and moved to Covina, Ca. we have tracked down the first owner to buy this house and are currently investigating.

Glendora, California 1978 a 24 year old lady went missing, now the LA County Sheriffs Department is on the job and digging up a back yard in the city of Glendora, California 91740.

The person who reported her missing was her husband, the house has been sold three times since then, her car was found in a parking lot of Ontario Airport.

Glad to see some real police department work is being carried out by the sheriffs department on 555 Essex Street.

The neighborhood kids like the husband, but no wife? Wonder what happened to her remains?
More insider information to follow.

According to sources the back yard of this house in questions was not landscaped and only consisted of tall weeds and hard pack bare soil, dead pets were buried in the backyard before someone landscaped the entire backyard.

A patio concrete slab and cover was built before Robert B. sold the house for he first time.

News; Young teenagers remember mowing backyard weeds etc. and finding a slab of concrete that was in the middle of the yard, made no sense for it to be there.

Stand back, the Corner has brought out the dogs and shovels to start unearthing something buried in this houses backyard.

When you people do the things you do in "pride" parades in front of children, the sole purpose being for shock value, then it's very easy to accept that you're a bunch of child molesters.

Yes. Men who molest boys are not gay, they are pedophiles.

If a man like Sandusky is raping a boy in the shower ("horsing around") he is not gay, he is straight because he is a pedophile. But if the boy turns 18 before Sandusky comes, Sandusky turns gay at that moment.

How many gay pride parades have you been to? Have you ever seen a gay person on a parade float suggesting intercourse with a child?

You allegedly straight people need to get new material. As I said, you've got a lot more in common with child predators than gay people do.

If you want to know what gay people do when they have sex, why don't you rent a gay or lesbian DVD and see for yourself? Are you that interested to know?

Personally, I don't care what straight people do behind closed doors.

See how I do that? I keep my nose out of your personal business. You should do the same.

I'd lay odds that I've had a greater and more positive impact on society than you.

And keep up your insinuations about gays and pedophilia. My guess is that it will come back to haunt you someday.

Oh, the namesake you leave for your children... Liar, moron, likely closet-case...

I'm sure they'll be so proud to be associated with you.

Wow! You really missed your calling as a great legal mind.

Tell me, if a gay man begins to have sex with an underage girl, but ejaculates after she turns 18, does that make him heterosexual?

No. You don't get it. Let's start with the basics. I'll take you through it step by step.

Only time will tell if that "right" turns out to be a wrong for society. So u acknowledge polygamy maybe part of that "dust settling"? The more the merrier.

If you are asking if a gay man can be a pedophile, then the answer is yes. But so can a straight man, a gay woman, and a straight woman.

From a psychiatric, medical, and legal perspective, there is no such thing as a "gay pedophile" or a "straight pedophile".

You'll never see someone charged with the crime "gay pedophilia" or "straight pedophilia".

You'll never see someone with the diagnosis of "gay pedophilia" or "straight pedophilia"

In each of these cases, there are only terms of "pedophilia" or "child sex abuse" or some other similar; non-sexual orientation specific term.
