Seems like you and your "ilk" want to keep all the marriage equality for yourselves.
Where did I mention that people shouldn't be allowed to have multiple marriages?

He doesnít do that, have asked him many times, he makes a total lie of a statement of what you never said, and then refuses to reference what he is lying about what you said.

I think this forums is about dead, there is simply nothing left to discuss, we won, they lost, game over.

That is a very interesting question, one that our resident trolls should seriously consider. Why do these homophobic bigots spend their whole entire day harassing and insulting gay people?
I just keep reporting them to abuse.
It because they have sad, pathetic little lives. This is the only thing they 'think' that makes them feel superior, childish bigoted name calling is the only thing that they can remember (from grade school) and it's the only thing they have to do besides TV. Most are too old to even get it up and if they could, the wifey says no because they are too fat, repulsive and alcoholic. Keep posting and reporting, you scare them to their very core...

Lying is not just a tactic for him, it seems to be his fundamental personality characteristic, his path through life.

Normal society doesn't label characteristics as sane or insane. Normal society knows that would be stupid. Only idiots like yourself think that homosexuality has some type of value placed on it.

"Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood" - Coretta Scott King
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coretta_Scott_Ki...
That's great information but how does it negate my argument that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would probably not have supported a form of marriage that violates Godís will?

The only thing that you managed to prove, at least to me, is that Coretta Scott King decided to abandon her Christian roots and adopt a moral relativist position, which Dr. Martin Luther King "could never accept."

Let's remember that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a devout American Baptist minister. According to the official website of the Southern Baptist Convention, which is the world's largest Baptist denomination with 16 million members as of 2012: "We affirm God's plan for marriage and sexual intimacy Ė one man, and one woman, for life. Homosexuality is not a Ďvalid alternative lifestyle.í The Bible condemns it as sin. It is not, however, unforgivable sin. The same redemption available to all sinners is available to homosexuals. They, too, may become new creations in Christ." Source: < http://www.sbc.net/aboutus/pssexuality.asp> ; ;

The fact that Dr. King was a Baptist minister, and American Baptists do not officially support same-sex marriage, provides compelling reason to believe this American hero would not have supported non-traditional marriage.

Furthermore in 2009, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which was founded and lead by Dr. King from 1957 to 1968, threatened to fire the former president of its Los Angeles division, Rev. Eric P. Lee, for advocating against California Proposition 8. Source:Steinhauer, New York Times July 10, 2009 < http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/11/us/11gay.ht ... ;
That action reveals SCLCís stance on same-sex marriage.

Personally, I don't think Coretta King could have persuaded Dr. King to go against God's will because he was far too wise, morally convicted, and honorable.

The only joy that KiMare has in his life is harassing homosexuals, it defines his whole entire life. Isn't that pathetic? You think he would want to go out on a date or have some fun, but no, all he can do is sit there all day, every day and think of ways to be mean.
Words like please do not have an effect on KiMare because he is both morally bankrupt and divorced from reality.
Your diversion hasn't worked. You are taking the lead in that regard...

You may not believe in the Bible [a book of fairy tales] but you grew up surrounded by Bible bashing Christians like we all did and you have not freed yourself of all the Christian homophobic baggage that you carry around and falsely believe is your own. All homophobic is learned behaviour it is NOT something you were born with or something you came up with yourself. You learned it from stupid Christians.
A society that excludes minorities because of a religious prejudice with in the majority is NOT a moral society, but instead a corrupt one and a sick despicable one. You and the theocracy you would like to live in is an immoral society.
You're too ignorant for words. Children laugh at homosexuals. We all see this. They already understand the brokenness. No-one has to teach them anything of the sort. The only "teaching" they get is in school, during indoctrination..

<quoted text> Who appointed you rule maker? I am glad that gay people get real in your face, because the sick perverted society that you are a part of has to change and if it doesn't then we'll watch it die and be replaced by the society that our children are growing up in where they know they have gay friends, relatives and even parents and they think it is just fine that gay people are gay.
You white heterosexual KKKristan males no longer run America. We have taken it from you and we are evolving our Republic to include freedom for everyone and the fact that you can not mind your own business is all that is slowing us down. Soon you'll die, good, and you'll be replaced with three people who accept freedom for all, not just white heterosexual religious male homophobic males.
America belongs equally to us all. They days of you getting to make the rules have ended.
Reverend Alan- Why do you wish for your fellow man to die? You sound like a real homo-phobe. That is, a feeble minded person who holds an irrational hatred towards his fellow homo-sapiens.

Not indoctrination, education. Something YOU clearly lack. Brokenness? That's just your micro-penile speech impediment..
