Can you imagine if heterosexual marriages were called before the courts and scrutinized the way same-sex marriages have been?
Can you imagine a group of couples who have had abortions, extramarital affairs, multiple divorces, dead-beat dads, etc. having to try to argue why it is that heterosexuals should have the right to marry?
The state could show statistics about how unstable heterosexual marriages have become over the past few decades. They could ask courts to either eliminate states supported heterosexual marriages or they could argue for severe restrictions on heterosexual marriages; making potential couples go through a series of medical and psychiatric tests, just to make sure that couples are truly worthy of marriage.
That's what gays have had to do. We have been scrutinized and had our personal lives investigated at every step of the way in the fight to obtain the right to marry.
And while many straight couples would qualify for marriage after being thoroughly tested; many would not qualify. They would be banned from marriage.
I'm just trying to point out the ridiculousness of the arguments that Kim keeps making, especially the argument that only couples who have the ability or potential to procreate should be allowed to marry.
If he and others are going to so narrowly define marriage for gays, then they need to narrowly define it for themselves. They need to put structures in place that would reduce domestic violence, abortion, child abuse/neglect, parental abandonment, divorce, adultery, etc. BEFORE a heterosexual couple could marry.
What's good for the chimera goose is good for the devastatingly gorgeous gander.
There's nothing wrong with KiMares arguments. The right to marry belongs with the normal people. Not with the SSSB crowd. You couldn't possibly have realized how weak this post is, else, you'd not have posted it.
And, I'm still laughing about the "prolapsed rectu....." I mean, really.. That was rich.
It's not called a "prolapsed rectum", it's called a "blow-out". It is clear, incontrovertible, fundamental, undeniable proof that what you hohos engage in is unnatural, and not meant to be performed. Even oral sex is more natural. When was the last time that you gave someone a "prolapsed esophagus"?
I mean, come on now, are you pulling my le...Are you giving me a "prolapsed leg"? Seriously...? "Prolapse" the other leg, it's the one with the bell on it... Did you "prolapse" that one out of your a$$?

No, dear, you missed my point...
If heterosexual marriages were scrutinized to the same degree that homosexual marriages have been, then many heterosexual marriages simply would not meet the "standard" that so many of the people in here say must be met in order to qualify for marriage.
Do you se what I'm saying?
Yeah. You're saying that "prolapsing" your buddy is to be allowed, because of some failures on our side.

Major announcement from the Vatican...
"Pope Francis reached out to gays, saying he won't judge priests for their sexual orientation in a remarkably open and wide-ranging news conference Monday as he returned from his first foreign trip.
'If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?' Francis asked.'We shouldn't marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society'."
----------
WOW!
Is he corrupting religion further, in order to sanction the gay ones, the pedophiliac ones, or is he even making a distinction?
I'll bet that he's trying to "prolapse" people into the church...

Cute joke I read today...
12 priests were about to be ordained. The final test was for them to line up in a straight row, totally nude in a garden while a sexy and beautiful, big-breasted, nude model danced before them.
Each priest had a small bell attached to his penis and they were told that anyone whose bell rang when she danced in front of them would not be ordained because he had not reached a state of spiritual purity.
The beautiful model danced before the first candidate, with no reaction.
She proceeded down the line with the same response from all the priests until she got to the final priest, Carlos.
As she danced, his bell began to ring so loudly that it flew off and fell clattering to the ground. Embarrassed, Carlos took a few steps forward, and bent over to pick it up.
Then, all the other bells started to ring, and all hell broke loose....
That's a good joke. I like that one!

Oh, maybe the mockery will continue. You know, I say to Kim and Rock that we'll make better marriages simply to annoy them.
They take such great delight in telling us that our marriages don't count.
It annoys me that they do this, so I feel that turn-about is fair play.
Nevertheless, I will stand by my comment that heterosexual marriages could not stand the level of study and scrutiny that has been heaped on same-sex marriages for the past several years.
If people looked at heterosexual marriage the way they've judged and picked apart gay relationships, there's not a doubt in my mind that they couldn't pass muster.
Seriously... If they're going to look at every single aspect of same-sex marriage and demand that we aren't fit, then their marriages should be just as closely inspected.
So, if they're going to continue to insist that only certain people should be allowed to marry, then I'm going to suggest that probing investigations be done on couples who wish to marry. They should be evaluated for potential adultery problems, divorce likelihood, anger management issues (to stem any abuse problems), etc.
And only after they've passed these rigorous tests should they be issued a license to marry.
That way, people like Kimare Kardashian, could be certain that only the cream of the crop are allowed to marry.
We'd probably be a LOT better off....

Frankie rolled to a bar, but wasn't able to enter because there were no ramps.
He hired an attorney to sue the bar's owner. They were able to reach an agreement where Frankie received a lump sum of $150,000.
Frankie spent part of his money on a "Coca-Cola red" top of the line "Jazzy" scooter with a reclining, gel cushioned seat.
His friends and family are hopeful that Frankie's new "Jazzy" will inspire him to get out of the house and away from his fookin computer; you know the one, where he makes 15 comments every half hour.
I'm so glad this story has a happy ending.
Yeah, at least he wasn't gonna get told to "get the hell out"...

The qualifications are simple. The parties must be of age, able to consent, not closely related by blood, not currently married, and of the opposite sex. You're operating from the position that personal same sex intimate sexual relationships are marriage, and are considered as such by a broad consensus. Thirty state bans say other wise.
Excellent post, sir.

But coming, more every year... National recognition was a very big step.
More and more large companies are piling on, they no longer want offices in states where their employees marriages are not recognized.
The pressure is on in every direction
Politically now that a majority of voters favor same sex marriage, the speed will escalate
Not everyone wants to work for Chick a Fill
Big D lie #....Well, I've lost track. NOT "National recognition" at all. Recognized in a few. Your company playbook has you going off the deep end.
"More and more large companies are piling on" in spite of the fact that they have NO business engaing in politics and tiiping the scales through the manipulation of jobs and money. they are not in existence to control national policy.
"The pressure is on in every direction" from corporate entities that have no place doing so.
"a majority of voters favor same sex marriage" is a LIE! I have told you, you liar, that I can disporve what your little black book tells you to say. Why won't you answer my challenge? You know that you are lying and depending upon propagandist trollsites to further your lies. It is why you ignore my offer. Never once have you even addressed my offer. Even acknowledged it. We both know that you lie.
well
