It's not hard to disprove your assertions because it is so amazingly infantile.
Does the state allow infertile heterosexual couples to legally marry?
Is procreation possible outside the legal protections of marriage?
If so your entire argument is down the drain.
Hey lides,

Noticed you ignored the main point of the post with a ad homoan attack.

You okay with your buddies falsely portraying our position?

Exactly, infants.....you're catching on.

As long as the couple, OPPOSITE SEX regardless of self identified sexual orientation, is willing to accept each other as HUSBAND AND WIFE, the state will allow them to marry.
Is procreation possible outside the legal protections of marriage?
So is love, sex, and cohabitation. Your point is? Society benefits when sex, and procreation take place within the marital relationship between husband and wife.
If so your entire argument is down the drain.
Crazy, I know but marriage is a union of both sexes. The state can declare a veggie patty burger, but that doesn't make it a hamburger.

Of course Judge Luis A. Lavin said the public interest would not suffer if the plant were to operate in the meantime?

Has this judge lost all the brain cells in his head?

This of course is America and we are still talking about California?

Dumb and dumber.
I rarely address the religious basis for marriage.
I kind of enjoy the hissy fit when I point out the social science basis;
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.
No violation of freedom, no religion. Just a clear distinction between the two relationships.
Now, watch the pink brigade show up.

Where exactly did I assign blame to the Bush or Cheney? I simply said Cheney approved of the monitoring. I'd think that would make those who supported the last administration like Obama.

I gave hell to somebody about doing something a certain way, then give them credit for making it right, and get the negative smilies from the usual bedwetter.

There's no pleasing the homosexuals. They're irresponsible and mentally unstable. Only the Common Man wants them in their neighborhood.

Oh you can find nut jobs that think anything from an evolutionary standpoint, Hitler for example, but the money is coming from the religious.

People that actually know something about evolution know better than what you have been saying., You are stretching to find a reason to not support it.

No animals other than man marry, there are some that are monogamous ( generally not man )but they donít have a legal marriage ceremony, so that kind of tosses all your arguments out the window from a marriage perspective.

As far as homosexuality is concerned there are dozens of documented species that include homosexuality, so that tosses out the whole natural argument.

A ceremony is a ritual, and animals are VERY ritualistic, very ceremonious in their own fashion (their dances and their waggles and their songs) and since homosexuals are mostly regressive animals...

So what was your point again?

I get the feeling that you're stuttering and stammering as you write. You don't really believe what you're saying, do you?

You're putting the cart before the horse. The whole issues has been systematically attacked, starting with the removal of children as the primary impetus of marriage. Having removed this inconvenient validation for coupling, you are having a happy time stating that my assertion is "down the tubes".
Can infertile heterosexual couples marry? If so, then your assertion is down the tubes.
Rock Hudson wrote:
Stating that "that the state does not have an interest in a child being raised by two biological parents" is another step towards the new and draconian measure of taking our children away, and letting the state take control of them.
No it is not. The state doesnít take children born out of wedlock, and it allows divorce in cases where children are in the picture. Only a moron would imply that there is a state interest in children being raised by two biological parents. How does it feel to be utterly out of touch with reality?
Rock Hudson wrote:

Actually, you are the one advocating that the state not provide all persons within their jurisdiction equal protection of the laws counter to the US Constitution. Itís ironic that you then accuse someone else of fascism. One wonders if you actually have any understanding of what you have implied?

Again, you assert that the rights sought by the polygamists are greater than others are asking for, but this is a lie.
No, if one can count, they can see that the protections sought is greater.
Rock Hudson wrote:
The actual number of rights are identical, the number of claimants is greater.
Do you see how you just employed the word greater? Yeah, that is how you just disproved your own argument. Congratulations, you arenít to terribly bright.

This is why you have disproven your own argument. I think your ignorance is hysterical.
Rock Hudson wrote:

The difference is outlawing bigamy can be justified because it seeks greater protection, which you yourself have admitted in your inept attempt to justify polygamy, while outlawing same sex marriage serves no compelling state interest.

Earth to moron, there is a compelling state interest served by denying siblings the right to marry.
