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.".

<quoted text>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?
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.

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 don’t have a personal world, I live in the real one.


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.

That's not reality, that's made up fantasy fundie-land. Look, we get it, you don't want to accept our marriages. No one cares. your acceptance is about as important as the acceptance of donkey. Your lack of acceptance doesn't make them any less real, it just publically demonstrates how juvenile you are.
Now, you run along with your pouty face, and you stomp your feet all day long! Your very poorly created opinions don't trump facts.
Your imaginary "half marriages" and "mutual sterility" and "essences" and obsession with anal sex demonstrate NOTHING, other than your complete and utter stupidity.
Smile ugly! We love when fundies throw themselves into public arguments about which they know nothing other than their beliefs!! Nothing shows you all off for what you are more than that!!!
Yes, junior, I am sure that you think that you are doing well.

1) Stating that "Mating behavior is completely irrelevant to the state issuing a marriage license" is not a rabid opinion, it's a bona fide statement of fact. It's demonstrable and provable.
2) Science has nothing to do with marriage. But don't let that stop you from pretending it does.

Frank is policing his own side, and arguing for true equality. Unlike your lame and hypocritical ass...

Why do people divorce? Bitter quarrels, insensitive remarks, lack of humor, watching too much television, inability to listen, drunkenness, sexual rejection—the reasons men or women give for why they leave a marriage are as varied as their motives for having wedded in the first place.

Overt adultery heads the list. Sterility and barrenness come next. Cruelty, particularly by the husband, ranks third among worldwide reasons for divorce. I am not surprised that adultery and infertility are paramount. Darwin theorized that people marry primarily to breed.

Only 16 percent of the 853 cultures on record actually prescribe monogyny, in which a man is permitted only one wife at a time. Western cultures are among them. We are in the minority, however. A whopping 84 percent of all human societies permit a man to take more than one wife at once—polygyny.
