The perverts don't realize just how dangerously stupid they truly are.

That one accepts "hate crimes" in its vocabulary as if it were normal, same as the magic word "homophobic".

Does it really take a bought and paid for "scientist" to see what a child can see?
I ask that all the time. Why does it take a family member involved for a republican to see the right thing is to support same sex marriage, have they no empathy at all for their constituents? Canít they see the right thing to do without it having to be directly affected by a personal family member?

A child can see it, why canít they?

Hate crime is just a simple way to determine premeditation and forethought

the penalties are no different than premeditation, and a person that spews hatred for a class of people makes that determination easy.

May 22, 2013 - a news helicopter has been hovering for about an hour over the big dig area. The house in question is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, three owners have occupied this house since Robert Byron sold it and moved to Covina, Ca. we have tracked down the first owner to buy this house and are currently investigating.
Glendora, California 1978 a 24 year old lady went missing, now the LA County Sheriffs Department is on the job and digging up a back yard in the city of Glendora, California 91740.
The person who reported her missing was her husband, the house has been sold three times since then.
Glad to see some real police department work is being carried out by the sheriffs department on Essex Street at 555.
The neighborhood kids like the husband, but no wife? Wonder what happened to her remains?
More insider information to follow;

According to sources the back yard of this house in questions was not landscaped and only consisted of tall weeds and hard pack bare soil, dead pets were buried in the backyard before someone landscaped the entire backyard.

There's really no need to have anyone laugh at you to be the ignorant moron that you are. You would be an ignorant moron even without the laughs.

Same-sex marriages that are built on love, mutual respect, monogamy, and life-long commitment are equal to any opposite-sex marriage.
Close, but no cigar.
As you have said many times before, the potential for children in a relationship IS NOT a basis for marriage.
Why you continue your "What about the children?" campaign continues to baffle me.
Your TIRED "mutually sterile duplicate", "cross-cultural constraint", and "failure of mating behavior" material has gotten really old. Nobody believes it.
It's the reason marriage, as a distinct privileged relationship, exists in the first place. Otherwise why would it matter who married who, or didn't marry who?
Why should we deny same-sex couples access to legal marriage based on your opinions?
Now, I've answered your question. You answer mine...
Individuals can access legal marriage as part of a pairing recognized by law, not couples. Why should marriage be fundamentally redefined?

But not the value of Americans expressing their will through the voting process, as in votes for prop 22, and prop 8. Apparently that value is not part of Big D's patriotism.

It isnít being fundamentally re-defined, we are just making it more inclusive.

The thousands upon thousands of same sex couples legally married in the US today certainly did not re-define my marriage in any way at all.

I have also noticed that Big D's patriotism tends to be very authoritarian and very selective.

If you make it too inclusive it will include everyone and then everyone will be married and marriage will mean absolutely nothing.

Your marriage perhaps

They did not harm mine in any way at all, I think it is odd that someones marriage is so terribly affected by others being able to marry.

In court the lawyers could not find a single couple whose marriage was harmed by others being able to marry, it was a critical flaw in their case. Not one single example was able to be given.

Children see a lot of things... Children see cooked spinach and think you're trying to poison them. They see Harry Potter and believe in magic. Children can look up at the sky and think Heaven is just beyond the clouds--that their deceased grandparents are walking around on smoke, looking lovingly down on them from above.

That's why children aren't scientists.
