but not gay marriage and you know it...that's why on other threads you will admit its not and that it likely will not be one except if you load the bench with liberals!
There is no such thing as "gay marriage".

The only question is does the right to marry apply to same-sex couples. Just as it once didn't apply to inter-racial couples.

Our right to marry is simply being unconstitutionally denied in 41 states. It's only a matter of time before the court rules such.

These sound just like the problems you use as a valid reason to not provide marriage to polygamists...
and yes I agree that "Every time you turn around, something more unusual than you had previously imagined takes place."
Indeed you seem to be supporting that the slippery slope has begun!
Still waiting to hear that proposal to govern polygamous relationships. When it's finished, send me a link.

I agree.
But are children really being protected in a ss household? Two men can never make a good mother regardless of what some marxist/communist left leaning moral web destroyer thinks, and they can't think past second base.
Thank you.
I'm sure there's probably a grandmother or two that will fill the gender role you think is so important. Or a sister or female friend. Since most Moms & Dads in Mom/Dad families both work, the role model you keep insisting is so important in a family unit often gets filled by someone else anyway.

You sound ridiculous every time you peddle out that dusty old "but it deprives the child of a Mom/Dad" line.

I challenge you to find a child anywhere here on this planet that doesn't have a mother and father. It's biologically impossible.

I have several nieces and nephews. Some were raised by single parents others by both. Some have parents who divorced. But they all have someone they can turn to when they need a "Mom" or "Dad".

There are plenty of valid arguments against a dangerous lifestyle that involves ss acts. There are many reasons until recently that such a dangerous lifestyle and choice recieved little or no airtime on tv accept for a pornographic movie. The greatest contribution by far is pornography and hiv/aids that now is more prevalent among hetero's because of bisexuals.
Let us not forget that members of NAMBLA marched with gays up until 2001 in SF and now there is no need to call them NAMBLA because of [email protected] and now ss parenting in Assachewsetts. We can thank all the scantilly clad dressed young girls to Follywood as well. I could go on and on but this is getting old you dangerous little manboy lover you.
Shalom.
Well let's see 'em bullshitter....LOL!

Fact is I too was against homosexuals and gays marrying until I saw facts rather than opinion.

Your skewed world of which your dumbfuck rant above is an indication on how far off the wagon or reality you must have fallen does not convince anybody of anything outside you'rew a lost soul with an attitude you dumbass.

Just an FYI.

So by your rationale any man can marry as many women or vice versa.
She never said or implied that.

Polygamy is more than two people getting married. It is illegal too. Banned by SCOTUS in the late 1800's. So that alone shows marriage was never "always" one way.

Under current Federal Law SSM IS legal for any State that wishes to institute it. It still involves two people not multiple wives or husbands.

It's strange you want to make marriage one man one woman then want polygamy legal while saying no to two same sex people getting married.

Here's another thing you never address. In a polygamous marriage how does the child know which one is their real Mom or Dad since those roles are so important to you?

There are NO same sex "acts" that ay folks engage in that are not also engaged in by straight folks.

The same sex "act" we are talking about on this thread is marriage, and a great many straight folks also engage in the act?

oh, unless you are talking about sex. You aren't, are you?

Because it would be a little creepy and perverse if the first thing you think about on a thread about marriage is other people engaging in sex acts.

That's not the case with you, is it?

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING....

Scientist have found the gene defect that causes homosexuality.. "Epi-Marks" on genes that did not erase properly.. So now they devise a test to screen for it.. Then we can abort defective fetuses.. So in the near future this will no longer be an issue..

May we suggest abortion to your parents, clearly they made a f*cking mistake and it really doesn't matter that you're viable outside the womb, society will consider it a favor.

Too bad we can't screen for the religious freak gene so we can abort all those.

Btw, I thought you anti-gay religious types were opposed to abortion? Or is this just another examply of your hypocrisy?

I have "Iblis-ak-bar & mo his prophet" and I am a religious freak??.. I believe in science!!.. There might be some hidden force through the Theory of quantum duality.. But an old man throwing lighting bolts; please!!.. I make no moral judgement on abortion any more than anesthetizing a turtle or frog before dissection..

Funny...but I'm on top of the news horly due to my job and as of yet have seen no gay gene or 'marker'.

You'd think it would be national news if it were true.

Now that I've got your attentgion...I have a large section of the Golden Gate Bridge that's up for sale.

Interested???

This is how the article starts out:
A team of international researchers has completed a study that suggests we will probably never find a ‘gay gene.' Sexual orientation is not about genetics, say the researchers, it's about epigenetics. This is the process where DNA expression is influenced by any number of external factors in the environment. And in the case of homosexuality, the researchers argue, the environment is the womb itself.
http://io9.com/5967426/scientists-confirm-tha...

So, not really a gene specifically and there has NEVER been a "GAY" gene.....anymore than there is a "straight" gene!!!

Gays and Lesbians have been around since the beginning of man and I seriously doubt that a test will ever be developed to determine if one will be Gay, Lesbian or straight when a child is born........and don't worry......people like you will continue to be jackazzes and there's not much that can be done about that either!!!

I thought I made it clear, it is NOT, repeat NOT, a gene!!.. It is an "Epi-Marker" within the gene.. There is no combination of Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine or Guanine that causes anyone to become homosexual.. But the "Epi-Markers" that activate, or hide a portion of a gene is the defect here.. So, knowing that, a diagnostic test will be simplified and marketed.. What people do with that test is up to them..
