Proof. All you have is marginalizing and name calling to offer to the debate.

I consider being called a Rose-clone an extreme honor and complement. She rocks (pun intended).

This topic is being ridden in to the ground by those born-again Mormons?

Are you trying to argue that there are not 18,000 legally married and recognized same sex couples in California today?
Wrong! Go study and come back
The voters of the state of California twice voted to define marriage as a union of one man AND one woman. All those same sex marriages should not have legally taken place.

Yes and if you put it on the ballot today ( or the next election if the SC gets it wrong ) prop 8 would go down in a landslide.

That isn’t the point, I could get a majority of brown eyed people to vote to deny blue eyed people the vote and get it to pass, It would then be overturned and unconstitutional, just as prop 8 will

We are not a pure democracy, we are also a republic, it is the rule of law, not the rule of the mob.

Go look it up in the dictionary, we are not an Athenian style democracy

You guys keep saying that.

Fact is, 31 States have a Constitutional ban on same sex marriage, that is only 7 States shy of a US Constitutional Amendment.

Just keep that in mind, 7 more states and it won't matter what the SCOTUS has to say about the matter.

That's right. And his solution to the issue? "If it happened once, it should happen again.", while at other times, he reviles living in the past. Psychotic, eh?

More nutz...
You claim that the same people, that only yesterday (relatively speaking) voted for define marriage as "one man/one woman", have now undergone a major change of heart, and all will now vote opposite to how they voted, only a couple of years ago? Was something put into the water? Or, are you that confident that the vote is being "handled"? By the "proper" counters? You know the ones that I mean, the vote changers? The ones that add up all the votes for Romney, and then declare Obammy the winner "by a landslide"?

Proof? I usually have no shortage of proof, to back up my claims, as when I displayed the hypocrisy of "X-ed-out", when he called me paranoid, remember that? He said that I was paranoid for saying that this site is operated by biased moderators, then I pointed out how VV gets to type the words "f**ked up" without having to use 2, count them, 2, asterisks, whilst I must edit my posts for those same words? Remember that? Proof? I have made many posts that contained all sorts of rational arguments against what is happening, but I get banned for making good arguments. I have made many non-insulting posts, to many in here, and still I get called "a hater who does nothing but call names" by you, who has obviously not read many of my posts, else, you'd not make such a silly and inane claim. Grow up, sonnie. You're just a chump, and if you believe that being a shadow of Chongo is an honor, you're more addled than I thought.
