Yes Mr Atheist Judge. LOL But I bet if I had more positive views on the gay lifestyle or if I was gay, then I would be a good Christian in your atheist world?

We have one!( so far )
I agree, I donít have a problem with believers that DONT try and force their interpretation of it on everyone else. That donít try to get into our childrenís lives without our consent.
Honestly I defend your rights to your religion, just as I defend the right of other religions to their religions. Or folks with no religion to their choice not to.
You and I donít have a problem.
So you take back every bad thing you said about Christians if they're gay. Priceless.

Marriage isn't defined SOLELY as a bond between man and woman. In 13 states and in 16 countries around the globe, marriage is also defined as a LEGAL bond between same-gender couples.
I know it kills you each time somebody points that out to you.
Oh... By the way... I never did get an answer as to why you were forced to change your name.
Would you care to elaborate?
I am referring to the realistic definition of marriage, you are referring to the legal definition of marriage. It doesn't kill me to note the difference.
I was banned because I made an honest observation about the Trayvon Martin case, and the state of the nation, in general. I made a "Politically Incorrect" statement. This means that the statement that I made was not couched in "negro friendly and sympathetic" terms, but in realistic terms. It is a sad fact that in America today, even our freedom of speech is no longer guaranteed. In spite of the Constitution. Even the use of the word "Negro" is now considered to be a racist term. We are expected to use hyphenated words that qualify the "American-ness" of citizens this nation, words that pay homage to the injustice of their very presence in this country, and seem to set them above the rest of us. Is that elaborate enough?

Maybe I'm not being clear... What particular comment got you banned?
I know who you are.
I don't know if it will allow me to post it, but I will try.
I posted that if it were an "African-American" (not the term that I used) on "Caucasian-American" (Also, not the term that I used) crime, we'd not have heard about it. I also pointed out that the media now covers up the race of "African-American" criminals, when reporting on crimes, in order to reduce racial tension. This got me banned.

I donít claim to believe in any book that tells me not to :)

This is the world, not your fantasy land, there are believers in literally tens of thousands of religions in this world, thousands and thousands of gods and families of gods in this world.

I donít have a personal world, I live in the real one.

Although Big D intensely dislikes Christians he somehow feels he can judge Christians. What I get from his schtick so far is the only good Christian is a gay Christian.

It's simply stupid to continue to make claims that have no basis in legal fact.
I'll bet you just bark at the moon when you see more and more states and countries pass marriage equality laws.
The TOP queen gave her official approval for same-sex marriage in the U.K. yesterday.
LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!!
Claims that have no basis in legal fact are still relevant, when he is posting reality. Legality cannot overcome rational reality. Example: Do you consider the illegals that received green cards through "Operation Amnesty" to be valid, bona-fide Americans?

The Queen is bowing to political pressur. Her hold on the throne is tenuous. There is sentiment that having a monarchy in England is archaic, and needs to be done away with. This is an appeasement move. Now, that she has caved in, I expect the move to eradicate the monarchy will progress. The concept is: " Make the power capitulate, then make the power disappear.".

You got it. The only good Christian is a gay Christian to the tolerant and diverse Big D.

No, what's stupid is continuing to reference things that don't really exist. Like "half a marriage". That's what's really stupid.
One can only assume that you find your "arguments" from the same fundie store as the village idiot, Brian_G. You sound more and more like him everyday. And by like him, I mean, idiotic and desperate.
Stating reality is never out of vogue. Sorry if it annoys you. You should go to a gay bar, if you want to hear only "pro-SSM" comments.

Real proud of you. Real proud.

But of course we all live in the real world. If you ever think it's not real, smash your toe with a sledgehammer and then tell me what's not real.

Lets see
The legal facts ( which you ignore are )
Animals ( other than man ) do not have marriage contracts
Precreation is not now nor has ever been a requirement for a marriage license
Mating behavior is not stipulated on a marriage contract
Same sex couples are legally married and recognized on both the state and federal level
Some people can and do have children regardless of marital status ( and always have )
People raise children regardless of their biological connection to the child ( I have 3 myself that I raised that were not biologically mine, however they all call me Dad )
A microscopic view, and an attempt to keep the discussion in an arena, the ONLY arena, in which your argument can survive. Through the protection of the Govt. Once your argument hits the pavement, though, it dissipates. Like when I offered you a Youtube video, to clearly illustrate what happens to your slogans. The offer of the video that you never took me up on, I might add... Never even acknowledged the mention of. Ignored. Because you know that I have tested this argument of yours "More Americans..." and found it to be false, and provably so.

Let me help you; mating is irrelevant to the discussion of marriage. Even if it weren't, gays mate whether you like it or not. You don't get to make up your own definitions of what mating is.
<quoted text>
I highly doubt this figure, but in the end it's completely irrelevant.
<quoted text>
No one cares about cross cultural perspective. We only care about the perspective of the state. Cross cultures aren't issuing marriages, the state is. The state has no mandates as it relates to mating or procreation.
<quoted text>
Commonality is completely irrelevant. You are arguing "tradition". Sorry, that's not a valid argument when it relates to civil rights. Never has been and never will be. Your argument merely demonstrates your desperation.
<quoted text>
Face it c*nt, NOTHING you have stated has destroyed ANYTHING. Gays are still getting married, their marriages are equal to their heterosexual counterparts, laws are continuing to be changed in order to accommodate and regognize our marriages, and all your fundie twirls, lies and obfuscations about procreation, sterility, essences, anal sex, AIDS and anything else you try and bring into the conversation will never alter that.
You're a loser, fighting a losing battle, on a lost cause.
Oh, and you're ugly to boot.
This last line proves, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the childish nature of this poster. You have no earthly idea what he looks like, but you have to insult, like a child.
