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.

They are hypocritical liars like yourself." Stating that 'fundies' are only a small fraction of the U.S.??? What a dumb arss! Look it up, it's about 25%, Homosexuals are only @ 2%. Lying dumb twurd.

Just like real babies are born, put it in the hole, wait a while and one comes out. This one just happen to come out brown.

I'm sure that is what you are guessing. You seem to guess a lot of ugly things. Because you're an ugly person. Like most fundamentalist Christians.

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

Read the first paragraph.

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.

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
just wondering

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.

I agree all religious fundamentalists need to be quarantined until we can find a cure, and by all means keep the children away from them.:)

I'm sorry, the issue was the basic essence of marriage. As I noted before, mating behavior is the primary driver. Legal issues followed much later, primarily to protect mothers and children.

You can dumb down your relationship to a contract, but don't insult intelligent people by calling it marriage.

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.
Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning. It is why it is considered illegal in many countries, and was here until recently.

That medical fact has not changed, and is a major part of how AIDS originated in our country and spread. THAT IS STILL COSTING ALL OF US IN MANY WAYS.

So take your self-righteous hissy fit and stuff it.

The "basic essence of marriage" is a human legal matter, not a natural matter.

There are no legal "marriages” in the animal kingdom outside of human governmental law.

You are free to call your grotesque marriage whatever you want to, but you will not be defining mine or anyone else’s.

There is no requirement of intent or ability for procreation for a marriage license, we marry couples all the time and have for hundreds of years that cannot have children. Your belittling those people is not helping your case in any way at all, you are only driving more people to our side of equality and freedom.

You do realize that you've stepped into it big time?

Your kind has all the makings of a Religion, with deeply mysterious acts, mindless slogans, childish screams of "no-believer!!!!" and need for Government protection.
