That would be me.
I'm not just Gay, I'm a GAY BITCH.
And one thing I don't do is engage in ad hominem, because that's the leading cause of violence, shootings and Gay Bashings against us. It's a Str8 'game.' I don't play such games.
I've never hid in a 'closet,' never cheated on anybody, never lived a double-life cowering behind a woman, never pretended to be someone other than who I am; I don't do casual-sex; I don't bed-hop; I've never cheated on anyone in my life, nor would I ever help anybody to cheat.
Corporations are the only places that ever gave me work. Oh sure, I've had other jobs, short-term, and have been fired merely for being Gay. I've even been fired for being Gay Married. Guess by who? The Str8 married.
Corporations helped me when my same-sex husband died. Corporations helped me when I'd been injured, and during a storm lost power and heat for ten days, Bank of America and Seafirst National Bank gave me blankets, water, food. I was denied public accomodations years prior, declined assistance at a Food Bank, because I'm Gay. Corporations did not discriminate.
When I needed medical attention, Corporations gave it, because the local, where I was at the time, wouldn't, just because I'm Gay.
There's still 1,137 rights and responsibilities denied me, because I'm Gay. Denied me by my government.
Now, I'm not so brainwashed to claim Corporations only employ "saints," because I've worked for various divisions filled with people claiming to be 'saints' that made sure my productivity was downgraded, sabotaging success, hatefully rumormongering, but in such "lofty" positions, only their words were ever known.
Further, I've worked with a few faux 'gays' that are just as mean, just as hateful, rumormongering, ridicule and scorn, being their pathetic attempt at making themselves-out as 'superior.' That said, I understand that situation perfectly, because all they've ever known is ridicule and scorn; all they've ever experienced was discrimination, so even while 'preaching' against it, they engage in it.
Don't stereotype me. Those that hide who they are, sneak around pretending to be 'str8' while having closeted sex-lives, bed-hopping, lieing, cheating, is not a GAY STANDARD, is not what I'm about, nor have I ever been about that. I am a real Gay, with real PRIDE. I am also Jew-ish.
I WAS BORN THIS WAY.
If not for Corporations, I'd have been marched to death camps, jail, homeless shelters, or just homeless under a bridge to starve to death.
My government won't protect me. Corporations do. My religions won't stop discrimination against me, but at least Corporations try.
Kind Regards,
Clayton Leon Winton
Well said. Best wishes. Big Red Heart. Namaste.

It has been overwhelmingly rejected by homosexuals as an actual practice in every country that allows it, and studies have shown that most such 'marriages' aren't even exclusive arrangements.
No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No child is ever born as a direct result and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Homosexual 'marriage,' where legal, isn't even a basic building block of homosexual society, much less of society as a whole. There is no standardized format for homosexual 'marriages,' and no economically unequal genders are involved.
Why not forget about disenfranchising others in order for force your concocted, failed philosophy into law? Why not try a little live and let live?
Hello Goat boy of 10,000 screen names. Still trying to insist you know how many gays and lesbians exist in the world and how many rejected marriage worldwide? Still hoping people won't call you on the 51% world wide divorce rate among heteros and point out that by your reasoning, heteros should not "disenfranchise" everyone else by insisting we accept their fraud of marriage?
Wow. How come you aren't on every news show and talk show? No one else has these stats you claim.
On the other hand I have stats that show that married gays and lesbians raise healthy children (unlike your parents).
When are you going to re-post the court records you claim you posted before that prove David Moore doesn't exist? I can look in any phone book in this country and find lots of David Moore's that DO exist.
Oh one last question. How can a child exist if it never had a mother and father? In order for the child to be raised in a same sex household it has to have a mother and father, so how can you claim such a relationship denies a child a father and mother. parthenogenesis?
LMAO!

These amicus briefs are silly and useless. The Justices rarely read more tahn a few. The way teh Court works is that their law clerks red some of the briefs, summarize some of tehm, and send to teh justices.

If you think the SCOTUS Justices actually read all of the briefs, in their entirety, means you're uninformed as to how the court works.
