Okay Big D that was funny! Gotta give U your due.
If they stopped issuing them for others that would be fine, either way it should be equal.
So you would be in favor of the state getting out of the marriage business altogether?

As to the "equal" part, what state restrictions are acceptable?
The point is, discrimination based on race, creed, religion, sex, orientation or national origin is plain wrong
and the list has grown, age, genetic disposition, etc.
Blood relatives are also prohibited from marrying, that too can be considerd a form of discrimination. As can prohibiting more than one wife, or husband at a time. So is any "discrimination" acceptable in regards to marriage?

Aw shucks, Gustypants, you really ought to take a break and think things through before you post. Clearly, I was talking from the heart in the majority of the post we're discussing. You know, the part where I was candid about my family history regarding neoplasia and my personal devotion to fund raising. That was the serious portion. I'm reasonably certain the silly part is obvious to most folks with an IQ above 85. That would be the portion that had your incontinence flare up and made you soil your underwear. I hope you weren't going commando.

BTW, I hate to be the one that has to explain this to you, the thread isn't something one can fool. That concept really doesn't apply to inanimate things like threads. Now you, OTOH, are easily fooled. Are the neighbor's kids still getting you with the 'ol "I got your thumb" gag?]

"genetic disposition" What a moron!
actually that is a state law ( perhaps federal I would have to check ) now, one I agree with

You cannot discriminate against someone because of a history of disease in their family or the genetic disposition thereof.

It is already the law

Excuse me, but I'm looking for the sloganeering shitferbrains who is railing against Charlie Rangel and his "white cracker" comment.

What's that, you say? None of the typical mental cripples are screaming against "prejudice" and "bigotry" at the moment? Not even the Covina Quar has a non sequitur?

Thought so.

I'm glad you know to keep it out of pencil sharpeners. That took a long time for you to learn, didn't it?

BTW, we're old enough we can stop calling it "my wee-wee" aren't we?

Jeez, for a second there it looked there was a Christian wanting to stick out its pious teats and be known for its works.

Exactly how am I disrespecting veterans? Seriously... What have I said that has been disrespectful?
Are you upset that I don't buy into the "God Bless America" crap that so many do?
I don't think that God blesses America any more than He blesses any other country.
I think our country has probably killed more people in the past century than any other country on the planet. Maybe Hitler's Nazis killed more, but I'd have to do a ton of research just to see. But in the end, it doesn't really matter, because we've got millions of gallons of blood on our hands.
In Iraq and Afghanistan we rained bombs down on houses made of mud--blowing away men, women, and children. And then we say "oops--collateral damage". We threw two nuclear bombs at Japan--killing and maiming hundreds of thousands of innocent people.
I don't agree with these policies. I don't support the industrial military complex.
I would die before I took a life or joined the armed forces.
But that's just me. I'm entitled to my opinion. Sorry if you find that insulting.
You seem to be able to dish out insults, but you fall to pieces if someone does the same to you.
God has damned America. Look at us...

Bullcrap, and I would like to introduce Kimare to these Vets who would have something to say to him.
Likely make him sterile if he kept belittling their marriages>

Why do you and your little friends make jokes about the abuse of children, is it really funny to you?
Thanks for admitting you were wrong...
We all insult each other in here, it's the coin of the realm.
I make no jokes about the abuse of children, but I occasionally play into the morgue humor of this room. Like when Rose-NoHo told a poster to "go back to giving [your] children pearl necklaces"..no one called her on that, so, I figure "what the hell?"

Yeah. My son was in Desert Storm. It wasn't easy. Rather have been there myself than worry about him. He was 18 a few months out of high school. He kicked ass and came home a man.
It was a little hot and dusty... Great place to work on a tan, though..

VV explained why in a very long winded post. I dozed off halfway through and never did get the gist of it. Something about why should he since all SSM supporters are right whatever they say.
Yeah, I've sensed the reluctance to chide one of their own, like the example I keep referring to, Rose-Noho telling a poster to give their kids pearl necklaces. Not one of the sleazy b@st@rds told her "foul".
