Who sanctioned your marriage Big D? A Church, or other house of worship, the state, or the Justice League?
OH I don’t look for outside approval, I don’t care about anyone’s beliefs in magical beings, filled out the legal paperwork for the government, but I don’t need anyone’s approval and could actually care less what others think.

I expect the same is true for others... do you care what same sex couples think of your marriage? They should have the same level of consideration of what you think of theirs.

And that white Americans are smarter therefore Latino's are not wanted and should be discouraged from immigrating to the USA.
Where's the proof?

What's the problem?

"Under God" was added to our nations pledge during the Eisenhower administration under the protests of the descendants of the pledges originator. There was no reference to any "God" in the original pledge.

You are free to believe in whichever "God" you choose to in this country, but no one else is under any obligation to follow the rules of any religion.

The Holy Bible has been in existence since Adam, long before the pledge of allegiance.

there are over 200 Gods that are believed in in this country alone, each one of those Gods are the "one true God" by the believers of that particular gods followers

What you are saying is meaningless, the rules you set for your religion are for the followers of your religion alone and no one else.

I don’t have to follow your God or someone else’s other God or anyone’s God, and you don’t have to follow theirs, that is what freedom of religion is. You are free to believe in this one or that one or none at all and you will be treated the same under the law

You are free to believe, you do not however have the right to enforce your beliefs onto others.

This is not about religion, only what is correct and incorrect.

You suggested he was gay in an attempt to insult him. It surely wasn't praise. I think that is stupid and counterproductive.
Then you must agree that it's an insult for him to suggest that I am a "broken straight person"--meaning that I am really straight, but "act" gay because I was abused or "act" gay because of some other such nonsense.

I'm sure that you believe his arguments are stupid and counterproductive? Hmmm?

Every single post of yours comes from a place of intolerance based on your religious agenda. You're fooling none but yourself, Kuntmary.

You might wish to rethink that statement. It's completely wrong. The vast majority of Biblical events happened LONG after the creation story.

Let me repeat back to you what you just informed me of

You just said that I personally know your bible better than you do. Although there is no proof that a Moses even existed, according to your bible your Moses wrote the beginnings of the old testament, many many generations after your ”Adam”.

The new testament was not written until after 300 AD

There are many religious and non-religious works older than your bible.

Most of the stories of your bible were taken from several older religions.

Haven't read them. Just saw your hateful nonsense blaring out, just begging for Frankie's comments.

Legally, the state of California sanctioned it, the only person I asked permission of ( other than my wife ) was her father ( I am old fashioned that way ) He knew before she did.

It was a non-religious ceremony, quite nice, close family and friends and one heck of a honeymoon, we spent more on the honeymoon than the wedding.

Not sure I understand your question... if it is different than I am responding... seriously

It seems to me the biggest fear that some pro SSM people have is poly marriage. Not me, I support true marriage equality. Do you?
Personally I believe in one wife, but I don't trying and force people to live under my rules. If they are conscenting adults, thats their business. If it came to a vote, I'd be checking the for box.
