It's you who has the hidden agendas. Tell us the truth. It's all about the Benjamins. the money. The financial gain. Not about "love" at all, is it? Want some love? Curl up with someone, and get some. that's all you need to start with, not governmental protection of your fragile status.

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.
Oh puh-leez. You don't have the votes to get an amendment out of Congress.

The Federal Marriage Amendment attempt failed in 2006. And in today's environment, it's even less likely to pass today.
It will never get to the states, I doubt it will pass the house, more Republicans are crossing the fence every week, and cannot possibly pass the senate. There is no point in a constitutional convention of state legislatures as it would require a 2/3 vote of state legislatures to go around the house and senate.

There are not enough states opposed to same sex marriage to get that, you would not even get California ( counted among his 31 states and dropping )

Used to be 50 states that would not recognize same sex marriages, today it is 31 and dropping.

They would not even get 31 states on board and adding 7 is a pipe dream, the momentum is going the other way

Yes the same people, it is turning that fast, and as more of our young folk turn of voting age, they are all on the right side of the issue as well.

I've told you several times that your posts come across as angry; as though you're always looking for confrontation and fights.
THAT is why, I believe, you may have been banned.
Whenever I've typed in coarse language, I am alerted by the TOIX system that my words may be offensive. All I do hit the "post comment" tab a second time and my post is created--blue words and all.
Yes sir, that is exactly my point. You enjoy the privilege of typing coarse words. When I type those same words, in no more confrontational manner than you, my posts get deleted and never make it the same screen that you are allowed to splash them on. Bias.

I second that.

I cannot post "F**k" without asteriks. Rose_NoHo, X-Box and certain other "more equal" posters can.

And I fail to see how a f**ked-up show of bias can be missed.

And this how it goes, when I omit the asterisks:

Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator.
Although I had to edit it, for the post to go through, see? No confrontation here, but, without the asterisks, not gonna go through. So, please save your gentle chidings for someone else. We know bias when we see it.

It was post # 190448. It was deleted. If Rose_NoHo or X-Box posted it, it wouldn't have been deleted.

Gosh, it must be pretty bad to feel that your rights are being quashed. We gay people wouldn't know ANYTHING about that.

Seems the worm has turned...
