Wrong

Many marriages do not involve procreation and they are just as married as those that do, no difference under US law.

And your little religious book is not US law

Same Sex Marriage is recognized legally on the state and federal level in California and in a growing number of states

the congressman has proposed doing away with the communist ideal of the minimum wage. he states that this stalinist nonsense is causing businesses to fail, new businesses wont start, people are in the streets, no items are being sold and their is unrest in the families and abortions everywhere. Now, if he is right, then we must accept this and do away with the minimum wage and then all things will be all right again just like they were in 1954. He says that he will compromise and allow a base line wage suggestion of $2.25 an hour anbd that is enough to live on. Businesses will thrive if we implement this and do away with the stalinist unions, medicare and socialist security and insane ideas that folks should be given free money when they quit working for whatever made up reason of age or fake sickness or laziness. he said his granpa lived to 94 and worked all his life...so there. Join us in the TEAPARTY to make this happen and stop all this hollering about queers and licenses. Golllleeee!

You said 1. "I'm not trying to understand a ss relationship."

We all clearly see that you have no desire to understand anything

You said 2. "I'm not trying to change anyone's personal description of their relationship."

And it would not matter if you tried to anyway you arenít that important.

You said 3. "I'm not judging anyone's personal relationships."

That is all you have done, and you are in no position to judge anything, people who are in a position to judge have supported same sex couples to marry on the state and federal level.

You said: "I simply and accurately noted the reality of a core distinction between ss couples and marriage."

The core description is a legal one, under state and federal law, same sex couples are indeed married. Your personal fantasy that you try to call reality has no bearing whatsoever

Of reality has no bearing on s bad ruling, why does it bother homosexuals so much when I point reality out?

Sorry but I'd have to say when Minnesota passed their marriage equality law that kind of shot this decision in the foot and made it moot. Care to try again?

The fact that SS relationships are a mating behavior defect is no opinion.

SS relationships are literally 'unmarriage'.

There is no "mating behavior" stipulated on a marriage license

Your opinions donít matter.

There is a fact however, that same sex couples are legally married and recognized on the state and federal level, recognized exactly the same as any other marriage.

You donít understand reality.

There is a fact however that you cannot avoid. Same sex marriages are the same under California and federal law as marriage, not treated or viewed any differently than any other marriage.

The point is there are numerous court cases proving the link between marriage and procreation, of marriage as the expected societal setting for procreation. Minnesota passed a law ending marriage conjugality, not "marriage equality".

Marriage itself, not individual marriages, but u know this.

Yet that "....little religious book...."was cited by a judge in a legal decision. Thirty plus states say conjugal marriage only.

Oh yes, there are all kinds of attempts to derail justice, they will continue to fail.

Currently same sex couples are being married every day in our state and many other states and nations, with the same rights and protections and the same recognitions as any other marriage.

That will continue

and more state are preparing to have their bans overturned as well, you are on a sinking ship.

That may be your opinion, but your opinions don't get to define my marriage. That is the reality of which you so oft attempt to speak.
