Thank you for saying that, so that others can see just how completely clueless you are.
Now it's "implied" eh? Thank you for finally admitting no one has stated procreation is a requirement for marriage. You lied.

"But we both know and understand that procreation has nothing to do with marriage. its not a requirment in any state. So your point of being a steril marriage hold's no any water. We don't mandate procreation in a heterosexual marriage so how can you EVEN try to in same sex marriage. Now go away you really bore me.
As to "hijack the word", look it up fool, you will find that same sex marriage is found in the deffination. "

"We both know and understand no such thing.
Only a ss couple who need protection to have sex would tell a heterosexual couple who need protection not to procreate that it doesn't matter.
Ss couples just don't equate to marriage. You will never be more than 'marriage LIGHT'. REALLY light. So light, relationship would qualify!
Smile. "
Well Frank, KMare, seems to think that procreation is a requirement. Have a great day, Gumba
Did Kimare say procreation is a requirement for marriage? No he didn't. It's a simple concept really.

I second that. We both know and understand no such thing. Procreation is closely associated with marriage. It is one of the main reasons the government supports marriage and gives benefits to marriage.

Why you would attempt to spin that away is telling.

When we talk of marriage it is understood we are talking about consenting adults.

Does anyone try to use your dumb argument that same sex marriage equality shouldn't be allowed because some kids might be forced into it? No. Because it's a stupid argument.

Yes the fundamental reason they are opposed to same sex marriage being legal is the inability for same sex couples to have children. They have said so repeatedly, one person in nearly every post they make.

Else there would not be the constant reference to “sterile”,“barren” as a reason for a reference to what they call "a sham of a marriage"

And every time they bring it up, I will remind them, and it makes no difference to me if you like it or not.

You are not important

Our government does not require any couple to have the ability or intent to have children in order to marry, and never has.

Just stop lying and trying to spin it that anyone said procreation is a requirement of marriage.

You are equally as important as I.

Right. And no one here has said that it is. Admit that or re-post a post where someone stated that procreation is a requirement.

Please tell me where in the constitution it states that it is a "right" that a union of a gay couple be called a marriage? The definition of "marriage" is between a man and a woman. Your rights to life, liberty and happiness do not include "marriage" as a defined institution. You have the ability as a gay couple to be "in union" with each other. You just do not meet the criteria for "marriage." Call it something else. Create your own word that represents your specific "union." Something like "egairram" which of course is "marriage" spelt backwards. And, while you're creating your own words and world, be sure to establish laws that define how a gay couple that dissolves their union (Have to say Gosh forbid...because God - or the Bible, does not define marriage as a gay "united" couple.)and has children, how the law will interpret who gets the child(ren)- if the partners can't agree and there's no evident negligence and each are equitably the same. How about you look into that? Where's your manners anyway?

I am not advocating children marrying. I am not advocating anyone commit crimes.

Is that your whole dopey argument against marriage equality? Work on it. It's bogus.

There are restrictions on marriage, period. That includes age, polygamy, incest and same sex.
You would be lying. Same sex marriage is NOT recognized on the federal level. The federal government does not recognize civil or same sex unions, THEY HONOR THE DESIGNATIONS BY THE LONE STATES WHO DO SO. If you get married in Buttlick, Mass your union is not recognized in sinful Nevada.
Dang skippy, Nevada allows prostitution in some counties, but even they see homosexuality as worse than prostitution. You know, since prostitution is what caused gay men and lesbians to choose homosexuality. Oldest trade on the planet. A gay has to make a living, I guess.
You are behind the times, section 3 of DOMA has been stuck down, the federal government recognizes all same sex marriages preformed in the states that recognize them. the only same sex couples who are legally married did so in states that recognize them, hence every legal same sex marriage is recognized by the federal government.

Catch up on the news of the last couple of months and come back

You just implied that was the case, I am happy to correct you.

Procreation has no place in a discussion about the legal right to marry

Hmmm, got a point about some people changing their sexual preferences over money. Sounds reasonable to me, money, sexual gratification, moral decay, sex drugs ,disease,die.
