Why Vote! I vote to stop bigotry in its tracks, and if that vote doesn't count and bigotry like yours comes out of the woodwork to discriminate against me, my skin color, my sexual orientation, or residential status, its awesome too know that the US Constitution is humane enough so that others like me are not trampled on by the oppression or killed by the hatred your kind breeds. Thank you US Supreme Court, for these bigots know not what they do!!
What's with the name change? Did you think for a second that your juvenile sloganeering wouldn't be recognizable?

Remember, boys and girls, if you call someone a bigot and a hater, then you're not celebrating diverse points of view.

Why same-sex marriage is harmful from a secular perspective
It Imposes Its Acceptance on All Society
By legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the State becomes the official and active promoter of anti-evolutionary sexual behavior. The State calls on public officials to officiate at the new civil ceremony, orders public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punishes any state employee who expresses disapproval.
In the private sphere, objecting parents will see their children exposed more than ever to this new, alternative lifestyle and children will be socialized and encouraged to act against their primal procreative instincts.
In every situation where marriage affects society, the State will expect heterosexuals and all people of good will to betray their biological inhibitions by condoning, through silence or act, an attack on the natural order and evolution.
Since homosexual behavior threatens the genetic progression and continuity of humanity, society should be very cautious to normalize and institutionalize it as a healthy alternative lifestyle.
Hilarious. According to this assclown, homosexuals are going to prevent everyone else from procreating and homosexuals are going to prevent science from boosting fertility!!! All the while, we only make up less then 2% of the population according to these idiots!! Who knew we were so powerful and influential?!!!!!

Those who throw dirt and cast stones at others would be wise to contemplate this little story. Are you hurting as intended? Or are you helping?

The story is told of an old jackass on a farm. For years he had worked the farm without giving too much trouble (For a jackass.). One day, not paying attention, he falls into a hole. The farmer hears the commotion, and finds the old jackass in deep trouble. After pondering the situation, he decides the jackass is too old to be much help anymore. And besides that, the hole needs to be filled anyway. So the farmer gets some help (There are always people willing to throw dirt.), and begins to fill the hole. Now this may be just an old jackass, but with each shovel full, the jackass shook the dirt off, and stepped up a little more. Just some thoughts for any jackass in a deep hole with lots of dirt being thrown.

Not believing in your beliefs is not intolerance. I've not stated you shouldn't be allowed to have your faith. I've not worked to have laws created that apply only to people of your faith. I've not done anything at all to deny you your right to freedom of religious expression. With that said, I'm under no obligation to express any sort of reverence for your deity or anyone else's. You can shove your intolerance accusation up your nose.
<quoted text>
Self created persecution is one of the most used commonalities of fundamentalists. You people love to pretend you're being persecuted for your faith. After all, your bible tells you that you will be rewarded for it, so of course you look for it everywhere.
<quoted text>
"prediction" LOL!!!!
I never said "Not believing in your beliefs" has anything to do with intolerance. Show me a post where I said that? Why do you lie so much? Constantly bashing and blaming those that do have deeper beliefs then your puddle of crud theory is intolerance. I'm not looking to be persecuted, I doubt too many others welcome it, I doubt the Catholic Priest beheaded in Syria (by some of Obama supported rebels) was looking for it. How should a True God reward him? Once again, Thanks proving the prediction from the Bible correct.

I see. By mentioning a place that someone else believes in, I am automatically in your mind, conveying a belief system of my own!! LOL!!! You are so stupid!!
Zeus, Pergatory, Frankie Rizzo's intelligence, Isis, procreation requirements, Limbo, Neptune.
So merely by typing these things, I now, in your mind, magically have conveyed a belief system in them?!! LOL!!!!
Seriously, you get stupider by the hour.
Yes. It's a very simple concept really. You tell someone to enjoy a place, you must think that place exists. Hope that helps. Always ask.

Remember! there are no stupid posts, only stupid posters such as yourself.

<quoted text> cultural Christianity is, Christianity is not declining, but it is being clarified. You need to educate yourself on polls and how questions are worded. Christianity is growing worldwide, in America it's intolerance for people of faith that is growing, bigots like you. But such persecution should not be uncommon or a surprise to a Christian.

The moron Rose Feratu gives us the arithmetic argument argument against poly marriage. These are the same people who ridicule any argument against SSM as dumb.
Is there any dumber argument than polygamists are asking for more than their fair share of equal protection??
Can polygamists get married? Who is the moron?

I don't get it Rock, why do they care? If the sole legal definition of marriage, a monogamous union of husband and wife, is, or has been discarded by a dozen states or so, why does it matter to them if it is further redefined, or changed?
So.... there are no more monogamous hetero couples getting married, eh? Black and white thinking is your downfall.
