Proof of what? That mentally incompetent people cannot marry? You must be arguing for the sake of arguing

You are making claims, then you don't show any proof? Sounds you are arguing in circles....
Prove that the "mentally defective" can't marry if you can...
Although it is completely irrelevant to the topic.

Gee, is the number of states in which it's legal increasing, or decreasing?

Are you 10 years old? Do you know anything about entering into a contract? It is not irrelevant by any means. Read up

Mentally defective persons are often denied the right to marry. That is why they started off with the APA
<quoted text>
Its not mentally"defective" persons. But rather those who are autistic or slow, they are not capable of achieving the maturity required for a legally binding marriage. You could claim a depressed person is "mentally defective." They can still marry. My point is IF you were to view homosexuality as a mental defect,(which I don't) it would be more similar to depression rather than retardation or autism.

Are you saying the number of states that have legal same-sex marriage is decreasing? 15 years ago, none. Today, what's the count, like 8?
Or are you praying for Scalia to save you? Good luck with that.

its just how "THEY" are, they can impose on you, But you shouldnt impose on them, its that same old liberal double standard.
That sure is the truth. They are all for freedom expression unless you are stating conservative ideas then they need to shout you down. And they are all for "love and tolerance" as long as you agree with them.

I'm not the one attacking another person who has done nothing. You might as well plug your ears and say lalalala. If you won't listen to reason and education, you are no more mature than a third grader.

why don't law makers leave heterosexual marriage to the church and make civil unions so they have the same legal rights as marriages; at least then christians (except praps gay ones) would be happy with their santity of marriage speil & gay couples would be happy with having the same legal rights as straight couples
