SSM deserves less respect than does Polygamy. after all, Polygamy has been in existence for thousands of years and has more acceptance than does SSM, which has only existed for , maybe, 20 years at best... Less respectable than Polygamy.

I donít, why do you?
I want to strengthen the nuclear family, and you do that by actually working on your relationship and your family, not by relying on laws to keep you together
You want the easy way, your wife forced to stay with you, regardless of how you treat one another, regardless of how unhappy and unhealthy it is for your children.
I want people to work on their relationships building strong families that donít rely on the crutch of law to keep them together but actually work together to build a strong family for themselves and their children.
Why do you want to weaken the nuclear family?
So, your corporate playbook tells you try and tell us that an "easy-out" will make everything stronger? Is that the corporate line?

You're a hater. And a hypocrite. And a bigot. Yuo should be showing us how you "accept" others. Show us how to "Love the one you're with". Show us some of that "diversity and tolerance". Instead, you show us the old "I'm the only one that matters" routine

Its clear that you don't support the strugle for equality among the LGBT community. You show that each and every day when you disrespect the marriage of the Gays and Lesbians who post here. Why Frank, why??
Why, we do it with the exact same gusto that you enjoy employing against Polygamists. Clear now? Examine your own bigoted take on Polygamy to understand us. There is no difference.

Oh, do you mean that when he clicked on "reply", he was assuming that it was you that he was responding to, instead of the poster that was using your name? Or, did you mean to advise yourself against assuming that it was you that he was responding to, when he clicked on "respond"? Or did you mean that the computer should not assume that it was you that Frank wasn't responding to, when he clicked on "respond"?

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children

It is from the Hebrew Bible. Back when God was vindictive. He calmed down a bit for the New Testament though.

So manipulating a contract to establish a counterfeit relationship is going to take ss couples from a horrible track record to the best?

Yes... I do believe that establishing a legally binding contract will help same-gender relationships.
Were it not for marriage, people would just be hooking up left and right. You've even said so yourself (marriage is a constraint).
And despite no-fault divorces, I still maintain that divorce is emotionally and financially devastating. The negative aspects of divorce from a legal contract help keep couples intact.
Throw in the ceremony; where you stand before God and a group of witnesses--family and friends, and you've got the makings of an actual social structure that encourages couples to remain together.
Marriage will strengthen same-sex couple's relationships. And that can only be good for us and the community.
Marriage is a constraint primarily because of mutual children.

You not only deny that element, ss couple cannot even perform it.

Even more ridiculous is your assertion. History shows that not considering children has destroyed marital commitment.

Your denial knows no reality.

If I remember my history well, and I do,
interracial marriages have existed in every culture in human history.
Ss couples being married? Incredibly rare and marginal instances that were often an aberration in the society.
As to the condition of marriage now? You can thank government for the last time they redefined marriage.

Those formal and informal bans on homosexual relationships were clearly established on religious, non-scientific beliefs and understandings about gays and lesbians.
Historical mistreatment of a minority group CANNOT be the basis for continued mistreatment; especially in light of the fact that (now pay particular attention to this) GAYS AND LESBIANS ARE NOT NOW CONISDERED TO BE DISORDERED OR UNNATURAL.
We have collectively learned that the way we viewed homosexuality throughout a great deal of history WAS WRONG!
Other radical shifts in scientific belief include:
--The discovery and acceptance that the world is not flat.
--The discovery and acceptance that the earth is not the center of the universe.
--The discovery and acceptance that illnesses are not related to an invasion of evil spirits or demonic possession.
--The discovery and acceptance that there are core elements that make up the world we live in.
--The discovery of the atom.
--The discovery and acceptance of working within a sterile medical setting to reduce the number of deaths from infections.
I could go on and on, but hopefully, you see my point.
The discovery and acceptance of homosexuality being a natural and normal orientation has been a game-changer in the way that society will forever look at gays and lesbians.
Short of some kind of worldwide, cataclysmic event that destroys all knowledge, we are not going to revisit the issue of homosexuality as being a disorder ever again.
The world view of homosexuality is based on common sense. It is exposed as a defective mutation in so many aspects that every culture and religion acknowledged it.

That is the ONLY collective view of any measure.

Moreover, your claim of normalcy is impossible to assert until the cause of homosexual is known. While that cause is likely to occur soon, it isn't looking good for a epi-marker that 'normally' gets erased...

Your denial knows no reality.

Vv, claiming identity with other members of society is simply wishful thinking if you are not honest about your distinctions.
The military is in the middle of problems because they deny gender and orientation distinctions. You demand the denial of orientation distinctions in marriage.
Dishonesty and denial creates a wicked bitch slap from reality...

<quoted text>
When it comes to denial's wicked bitch slap, you could write a book. You always seem to be right in the middle of it.
Here are the facts...
-- About 14,000 men have reported some kind of male/male unwanted harassment in the U.S. Armed forces. There are some 1.2 million men serving in the U.S. military. This means that just a tad over 1% of the men serving in the military have experienced unwanted male/male harassment.
--There are about 200,000 women serving in the military. Of that number, 12,000 have reported unwanted male/female harassment. That's a full 6% of women who have experienced harassment.
--Based on the figures above, we can pretty much determine that (a) unwanted harassment is a minor problem; especially involving male/male and (b) some men can be real dogs.
--Keep in mind that not all male/male harassment complaints come from heterosexual soldiers. Some of them obviously come from homosexual soldiers who believe they are being sexually harassed by a bunch of homophobic, mouth breathing, knuckle draggers.
----------
With only 1% male/male sexual harassment charges (some of them being from gay men), there is no major problem.
I'm guessing that the Department of Defense is working to reduce those numbers to as close to zero as possible.
But for some reason, sex and war has gone together for eons. I guess there's something about throwing a bunch of men and women together in highly stressful situations that bring out the worst in them. Not knowing whether you're going to be alive from one day to the next tends to make people rowdy. Politeness goes out the door.
If our country is going insist on going to war, as it has done for the majority of the past century, it's just going to have to learn to live with the fact that their warriors are not angels.
And finally, did you honestly think you could get away with comparing war and marriage? That's like comparing bicycles to bumble bees. They have no connection whatsoever.
Consider your denial bitch slapped...
You ignored the article I posted.

Most male/male assaults are not reported.

The military brass has been working to lower sexual assault. That is why the huge increase is so troubling.

However, you totally ignore the point of my post. I used the military as an example of denial and it's consequences. You can claim any future outcome you want, but the reality is right now that denial is getting bitch slapped big time. The consequences for a war time situation are worse.
