<quoted text>
In other words they acknowledged the union is different, not the same, as a union of husband and wife. Hmmmmmmm.......
<quoted text>
Are you the male wife, the "mife", or is it called something else?:)
Stop being daft and accept the ruling of the justices. They clearly said that in those states that allowed same-sex marriage, gay and lesbian partners were being treated as "second-class citizens".

Referring to them ass "second-class citizens" was the ONLY difference they made between a union of a man and wife and a union of man/man, woman/woman.

In marriages where both genders are present, both are referred to as "spouses", just as in a marriage composed of a man and woman. However, you can call both men "husbands" or both women "wives", if that pleases you.

You obviously detest this ruling. You obviously have no respect for same-gender partners who are married.

That puts you firmly on the wrong side of this issue and on the wrong side of the way history will see this decision.

You probably didn't wake up this morning with the understanding that future generations will see you and your kind the same way we see past segregationists and racial bigots.

Look at what's happening to Paula Deen. 40 years ago she could have said the "N-word" as much as she wanted without suffering any kind of fallout. Today, she admitted to once using the word and her business world is falling apart around her.

That's how quickly things can change.

As I've said to Kimare, "Either get on board, or get out of the way."

The ruling was bogus? Really? According to whom? You?!!! LOL!
The ruling stands. Not a damned thing you can do about it.

You don't annoy us cur. You exemplify the reason we don't accept 2nd status handouts. It's because of the efforts of bigots like yourself that we smile as we continue our civil journey. Watching as you bitch and moan every time we advance is hilarious!!
It started with one country, now we have 15. It started with one state, now we have 13 and DC. And what do your ilk do? They piss and moan about how its not real!!!! They quote the losers!!! They try and intentionally agitate and sow discord. Know why? Cause they got NOTHING!!!
But you keep trying to convince yourself that you are annoying us!!! Your need for self importance is hilarious!!!
BTW, acknowledging that you think you are annoying us verifies the intent of your "stating facts". The intent is to sow discord. Your god HATES your behavior. Enjoy hell KiMMy!!
Smile!
It's wrong to state facts because they annoy you???

You mean like, the SCOTUS ruling still hasn't changed the distinctions between your relationship and marriage?

Anyone with eyes can see something is wrong! Especially the children.

... Hey, why don't you and Rizzo start in on that polygamy routine instead. That one's always a hoot.
That's what they said about same sex marriage just a few short years ago and look at you now! Congratulations.

Don't cry, poly won't hurt you. If it were legal it would still be so rare you'll probably never have to be offended by the sight of a happy poly family.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage. It is not "a hoot" it is marriage and good people are being denied it, just like you used to be.

No you stupid moron, they declared us legally married. You see Pietro, with a marriage of same gender couples, there won't be both a "husband and wife". Anyone past the age of 9 would know this already. They also didn't declare us "right handed and left handed". They also didn't declare us "Caucasion and Hispanic". The only thing the state declared is that we are now legally married.
Are there any other completely ridiculous questions you'd like to ask dear, in order to continue showing off what a complete idiot you are?
Do let me know.
I don't know why he asked the question, anyone with eyes can see you are the wife!

Oh, dear, you never stated that. you simply "imply" it ad nausea. That's why all your posts are so easily dismissed.
<quoted text>
Um, no, not always. They most certainly are NOT always the result of mating behavior.
But since you brought it up, what mating behaviors are mandated for those that marry?
Please, do present more of your fundie twirling!!
<quoted text>
Nope, the idiot has been exposed as YOU.
Let us know when mating behaviors and procreation are mandated. Until then, we'll just sit back and laugh hysterically every time you insinuate they are!!!!
BTW, Betty White would be so please to know that you don't accept her marriage as real!! Oh, let's face facts. Betty White doesn't give a horse's patoot about your opinion of her marriage!! Just like everyone else doesn't!!!
Smile!!
You are the only one claiming anything is or is not mandated I simply note natures results. Marriage results in children, SS relationships never do.

Oh, and there is nothing you can do about it.

Another idiotic opinion. Oh, but please do let us know when sterility is a mandate of marriage, ok hon?!!!
<quoted text>
Nope, another incorrect opinion. The definition of mating has been presented, and there is NOTHING that presents gay mating as a defective or failed. Not one damn thing! But please KiMare, do continue lying for your Jesus!!
<quoted text>
Anal sex is NOT inherently harmful, it is NOT unhealthy, nor is it demeaning. You can present no evidence to support these opinions.
But your obsession with anal sex says much more about you then it does the millions and millions that engage in it.
Don't like it? Don't engage in it. But your thoughts on the matter are completely irrelevant. This discussion isn't about mating or types of sex. It's about the institution of marriage. Do try and keep up you old biddy.
<quoted text>
No dear, that would be you. No one is filled with more BS in this forum then you. Your ridiculous and repetitive talking points have been proven wrong repeatedly. But like the bleating jackass you are, you simply put on your ignorance shades and start the whole process all over again, hoping that you will garner a different outcome. There's a word for people that do the same thing over and over hoping for a different result. The word is "IDIOT".
<quoted text>
Um, you didn't present any facts. You merely brought all your twirling points to the table. SCOTUS wasn't there to present an opinion or ruling about anal sex. SCOTUS wasn't there to make an opinion or ruling about sterility. SCOTUS was there to rule on an issue about marriage. And that's what they did. The fact that you don't accept their ruling is completely irrelevant.
But don't let the fact that your stupid posts get you bitch-slapped on a daily basis prevent you from continuing to post your stupid fundie talking points. Repetition is the tool of idiots. Carry on plebe.
Sad, even scary angry denial.

I seriously think you need help.

Tough florida cops, don't they have anything else to do other than rough up old ladies 62 years old?

I'm sure they feel your tolerance and diversity. Even the little kids. Especially the little kids.

Who gives a damn that straight people can make children? Procreation promises are not a requirement for marriage between heterosexual couples. Why do you keep bringing up this issue as though it matters?

Furthermore, as has been pointed out to you numerous times, gay couples can and do adopt children. Consider that before you get on here again and try to point out the childlessness of gay couples.

Nothing that you can say here or anywhere will make a difference in the fact that same-sex marriage is here and is spreading throughout the country.

I can't wait for the day when people such as yourself will be forced to sit down and STFU about this issue. It will happen. Hopefully you, a self-described near-senile, jack-ass, will hang on until that day.
