Where do you think many of those abused children find loving homes. That's right. They find hope and love in gay and lesbian families quite often. Why should these families be degraded by mean spirited people? Why should these families be placed at a legal disadvantage Brian? All I see you doing is coming here abusing and belittling day after day. Do you think your horrible behavior is productive?

Brian, why do you keep bringing up pedophilia in a thread about sam sex marriage?

Are you too stupid to understand that homosexuality and pedophilia are completely separate things, and that the former is legal, while the latter is not?

What is more, science has largely refuted your idiotic notion that there is a link between homosexuality and pedophilia. Please grow a brain, you disingenuous lying troll.
"Other researchers have taken different approaches, but have similarly failed to find a connection between homosexuality and child molestation. Dr. Carole Jenny and her colleagues reviewed 352 medical charts, representing all of the sexually abused children seen in the emergency room or child abuse clinic of a Denver children's hospital during a one-year period (from July 1, 1991 to June 30, 1992). The molester was a gay or lesbian adult in fewer than 1% of cases in which an adult molester could be identified – only 2 of the 269 cases (Jenny et al., 1994)."

According to conspiracy theory lunatics like Brian, gays are so powerful and their reach so vast they control the media, all professional medical organizations and even reporting of abuse statistics. Yet they couldn't prevent the discrimination they've suffered for centuries and continue to experience today. Go figure.

Probably because sexual orientation is irrelevant, dumbass. Do you want them listed by hair color, too?

We'll never know, because NCANDS and the American Humane Association doesn't provide gender data for victims and their assaulter.

Keep marriage one man and one woman for the children.

Conceded, same sex marriage increases entitlement benefit spending. Glad that's settled.
As to whether gays have as much right to benefits meant to encourage fathers and mothers to raise their children together is a matter of debate. Those entitlements weren't voted into law when two men were considered married; when did rewriting marriage law based on sexual orientation become a right?
I support human rights and gays are human too. I just don't support the right of a minority group to redefine marriage against the will of the majority, as in Utah, Oklahoma, California, Iowa and Massachusetts. Let people write law not unelected unaccountable elitist judges overturning lawful elections.
Oh, now you're dissing our founding fathers. It's a good thing that the USA is a Republic.

Hate to break it to you but children of same sex households have been studied for decades by both Medical and Psychiatric Doctors. These kids have grown up just as healthy and happy as children from the more traditional families.

Ergo, the only dilemma is in your mind. Sorry 'bout that.

Answer this question Brian.....How is keeping a marriage just between a man and a woman going to make them be better parents? How does denying Same-Sex couples the right to marry going to make a heterosexual couple be MORE procreative responsible? I mean one being DENIED has NOTHING to do with the other, YET you keep insisting that it does, why?

Dear moron, Pedophiles are pedophiles, regardless of purported sexual orientation.

You look like an imbecile when you conflate sexuality with pedophilia.

Are you an idiot, it certainly looks that way when you posts moronic things like this.

It's stashed with your proof that polygamy is all about forced child marriage.

Frankie, polygamy seeks greater, not equal protection of the law, you twit.

Even you admit, three or more is greater than two.

Can you make an on topic argument, or are you finally admitting you are simply trolling?
