One more time, do you think before you post?

Seriously, it's like you have a magic eight ball filled with talking points. You simply shake the ball and type whatever it says.

Yes, legal marriage... Do you have a problem understanding the concept?
Yes, because if marriage is a "right" it cannot be "illegal"

Do you have a problem understanding the concept?
-It seems you do.

It's GOD's will, so let the Muslim's kill one another and blow themselves up in their own country.

Export them back to their own country.

France became the 14th country in the world to allow same-sex couples, when its parliament approved a law that has sparked often violent street protests and a rise in homophobic attacks.
Yes, this is what usually happens, when the government attempts to legislate morality, and to institute measures that the people don't approve of. It's called "protest' for a reason. As to the attacks, anybody can be targeted, for any reason, by idiots.

I agree, just mentioning that they are the ones filled with fear.
It is a lousy way to go through life
You must think yourselves to be very powerful, to imagine that we fear anyone. Did you fear your children, when you told them not to play with matches? Of course not. Did you fear them, when you told them that there'd be no cookies before dinner? No. Do you fear the dog-shit that you avoid stepping in? No. Stop being ridiculous.

You must be some kind of wimp, to threaten people on the internet. Your attempts to marginalize us for having opposite opinions proves that you are the traitor to the Constitution. You'd better keep being meek out in the world.

Scared to death that someone different than themselves will be recognized equally, even though that recognition will cost them absolutely nothing at all.

smirking dolt :
the law is central to the cases at hand and to what's been presented in court.
your opinion doesn't play into either the cases nor the law. just because you don't think that same sex couples can make a marriage doesn't negate the fact that they can (and will) obtain marriage licenses.
your opinion doesn't play into anyone else's marriages either.
if you consider the law a mockery, then your're free to leave and find a place of residence where you feel like you're surrounded by like minded people and you agree with the laws regarding marriage. good luck.
We'd prefer it if YOU left, and we could return to what is normal. If you don't like it here, then you should go and form your own country, instead of f**king ours up.

You ignorant haters sure do have a hard time reading for comprehension. Let me explain it for you, my point is that it doesn’t matter if I am a bigot, a hypocrite or anything else you want to label me to deserve Gay Marriage Equality. Essentially you feel you’re superior to Gay Americans and calling us names is your very lame (and I mean very lame) way of justifying your own hate. Cutting out all of your childish name calling and tantrums; you can’t present one valid reason why Gay Americans don’t deserve Gay Marriage Equality.
Did you say something, sugar, besides how you ignore all the rational arguments? I didn't think so.

Those are all great reasons, but, you forgot the most important one. Gay Marriage should be legal because we deserve equal rights and we’re Americans. By the way, who is the “we” you are referring to? Could it be the arrogant elitist ignorant haters? When are “we”(being you and all your hater friends) going to realize you have no say when it comes to people’s rights. That’s why “we”(being you and all your hater friends) are losing the fight to suppress Gay Americans right to marriage. But, thanks for the silly tantrum, you always amuse me.
As an American, you have equal rights, to marry according to the dictates of the majority. That's it. Elitist haters? You steal my words. You have no rights to marry a man, you moron. you may be changing that, but you are making the law recognize monstrosities. Such as yourself.
