Anal sex hardly has a devastating effect on our society. As I said before, millions of people--gay and straight--engage in anal sex every day. If it were as devastating and demeaning as you suggest the country would grind to a halt.
Uh, I think murder, rape, arson, most heinous crimes do have a upper hand over homo sex as 'bad' and none of those has ground us to a halt. Yet. Either.Goof.

My wife is the strong one. I'm melted butter when it comes to many things. But I'm not the delicate one!!! Either is she. So I guess we're missing an element you claim has to exist in a marriage.
Oh great marriage guru....at what Tibetan chain store may we seek to purchase our missing element of delicacy??????????

If polygamy were legal it would still be so rare that Woodtick would probably never have to be offended by the sight of a happy poly family.

Marriage. There is no one right way.

Both Jeff Kugel and Jeff Jeffers are allowed free seats to roaster in hell.

Who are these two candidates for this prestigious honor?

They are Jeff Jeffers and Jeff Kugel two long time associates from another city they destroyed together.

Neither care about the residents, just the end results. If that be the case then Glendora, California and any other city that had employed them got the dirty end of the stick.

Neither one of them is a exemplary employee, just average Ho Hum. get along a 9 to 5 err.

Works just hard enough for their own paycheck and that's it.

So their best attribute is steam rolling over long time resident's to finish a project.

Yes I have many times. You are a liar. What don't you understand about my posts such as "Marriage. There is no one right way"? or "polygamy deserves the same respect as ssm?" Are you stupid?

Your silly game is over. Get an argument. I think you are lying about supporting polygamy and incest marriage.

I think I understand the implications fairly well. I mean, Christ Almighty, every LGBT attorney in this country is talking about it. I listen. I read. I understand.<QUOTE>

"Every LGBT attorney?" So you receive all of your information and facts from those whom agree with you and consider yourself educated?

[QUOTE who="veryvermilion"] <quoted text>
If there wasn't anything for those states with DOMA laws to worry about</QUOTE>
The only issue with DOMA was Section 3 as the federal government- including the SCOTUS- lacks the enumerated power to define marriage in any form.
[QUOTE who="veryvermilion"] <quoted text>
, why are a handful of right-wing, zealots promising to try to pass a Constitutional Amendment to define marriage as being between one man and one woman?
Because that would be the proper way to define marriage throughout the nation. If that is what one desires to do, and 3/4th's of the States agree. Try reading the Constitution, you might be surprised by what's in it, though I bet you would be even more surprised by what isn't..

Thirty percent of the country now lives in an area where same-sex marriage is legal.
30%? You aren't any better at math than you are at law. It's 26%. 28% if you think DC really matters.

Hell, at the turn of this century, barely 30 percent of the population approved of same-sex marriage.

Right may in fact be right, but your right may not be the right of another- this country used to provide us the freedom to choose.

Don't laugh too hard, at the rate California is going they will be like Detroit in no time- Broke and unable to afford to purchase the paper to print: Birth, Marriage, Death Certificates. Nor afford to keep the offices open that provide such services.

So it won't much matter what the court ruled. Might want to take yourself to one of those terrible non-progressively run States where they can still afford such things.
