Believe me, the deprivation was very short lived. About a minute or two really. Once they realized the pay off was being endowed with two awesome fathers. Something that fundies like yourself deny your children. Why do you hate your children so?

Where exactly did Veryvermilion damn children? Whose children? Please provide the post number.
Thanks so much Kuntmare. Smile.
I think I said something like, "I don't give a goddamn about the children".

And they have spun it to mean that I'm "damning" children.

They know full well that I'm TIRED of them using children to fight marriage equality. Children aren't on every single person's mind when they get married. I know if I get married, I won't be thinking about children. I'm not going to have any. I won't be adopting any. They're not going to be a part of my future.

That's why I'm sick to death of hearing about "the children". Please! They don't give a damn about the children. They're only interested in stirring up anti-homosexual sentiment.

But they know this.

They're just being disingenuous.

You have linked to some "Yahoo" contributor; someone who basically wrote a term paper. And she never used your quote.

I don't have to prove that your comment is a lie. You need to prove that it's true. Give us one a single legitimate social scientist who proves your "social science" claim.

Social science (and basic common sense) defines marriage as a legal union that meets the needs of two people.

It doesn't matter whether a couple marries to raise a family and/or for companionship and/or for one of the pair to improve their status (financial/material) and/or for love and/or lust/beauty...

All of these are legitimate reasons for marriage.

The government certainly doesn't become involved in the reasons people marry. It's none of their business. It's none of the church's business. And it's certainly none of your business.

You posted nothing but crap

Show me the legal marriage contract for other animals, lets start there.

What is the evolutionary scientific based marriage contract.

I will give you a hint, none exists

I know more of anthropology both physical and cultural than you realize, and to date you have posted nothing but crap that does not relate in any way to marriage law.

Of course they did. Intentional deceitfulness and intentional misrepresentation are their stock and trade.

Why don't you grow up and realize that it's NONE OF YOUR FREAKING BUSINESS what two people do in the privacy of their own home, as long as what they do occurs between CONSENTING ADULTS and doesn't break any laws.

If you don't want to dip your dick in someone's behind, then DON'T DO IT! Millions of straight and gay people do it every day. It's their lives.

Stop being a child. Or maybe you're actually still a child and posting on an adult website.

Either way, get over it.

No dear, disgusting is someone who would have thoughts like yours. That's disgusting. Even more disgusting is posting them like this where children can see them.

You're disgusting.

My "little book" the bible is the real law.
No dear, your little Sky Santa manual is nothing but a book of fables. It has nothing to do with law. The law doesn't punish people for disobeying their parents or for coveting things. We don't murder women who turn out not to be virgins on their wedding night.

Marriage was prevalent in cultures that existed long before you little book was ever written. Your statement is false.

Man has just twisted its definition over time and made it their own.
Well, it is a man made institution, so man is perfectly authorized to twist it as it sees fit. For example, marriage originally meant that women were the property of their husbands. Fathers awarded them dowries in order to make the ugly ones more appealing to the single males. But as women "twisted" the laws over time in order to shove their demand for equal representation down the throats of society, the definition of marriage was redefined as two consenting participants. That's how language works dear.

If the jurors hadn't been threatened by the KKK an d Skin Heads of Florida then there would be no reason to give these hons the medical attention in the first place.

Florida Court provides counseling to Zimmerman jurors days after emotional verdict, they knew they did bad by letting that gun slinger lose on to he community.

Here is one to start with. There are many more that you could have easily found (maybe you did and just pretended ignorance again...).

You forgot already?

Procreation is not a requirement for a marriage license

Mating behavior is not stipulated for a marriage license

There are no legal marriage contracts in the animal kingdom as they are not natural, but legal contracts.

Tell you what, every time you post I will be glad to remind you

If we don't finally get some spine and eradicate those cockroaches once and for all, then no child is safe.

Their "pride" parades and Folsom Streets, their daring you to do something, was just the beginning.
