There are nearly 200 countries currently in the world.
The 92% of the world population opposes calling ss couples married.
Not ONE single culture has ever called ss couples married from start to finish. Every single culture has recognized marriage.
You were saying...
Which is it, 92% or not one single culture?

Corporations are people too, after all.

I'm arguing both issues... Gay people should be able to marry the consenting, unrelated, adult that they choose--just like heterosexuals. And LGBT people should be able to go to work, get housing, and not face legal discrimination based on their orientation.
As you probably know, many states have no laws that would prevent an employer from firing a person simply because he or she is gay. They can come right out and say, "We have learned that you are homosexual. Our company's founder is a Christian (so-called). And he/she does not want gay people to interact with customers. Your services are no longer required here, please leave the premises."
You can be denied housing and a variety of many other services simply because a provider learns of your orientation.
This kind of blatant discrimination should not be tolerated and should be illegal. You couldn't do it to a black person or a woman or a person in a wheelchair. Why should you be able to do it to a gay person?
Why "unrelated"? What harm would it cause you if I married my sister? Don't try to tell me we are already related. So are first cousins yet they are allowed to marry in many states.

Are you a hypocrite?

...men don't have hymens. Just an FYI.
Funny...
...many straight marriages are "sterile". Are they then not married??
"Duplicate gendered"??? LOL!!! As long as there are 2 consenting adults in the marriage it's complete. How and when they find intimacy is no more your business than if you were to beat on the door of your 80 something year old neighbors and inquire if they use more than 4 Viagra pills a week.
Children are better off in a loving family than one in which mom and dad think their offspring are nothing more than moving piņatas. These kids can identify with nurturing,love and caring, all qualities gay parents can possess as equally as straight parents.
Hey - it's your opinion gays cannot form marriages.
We get it. Stupid opinion but you own it.
Err...
...you are a big dope. Just an FYI.
Funny...

Same sex marriages bring forth the basic fundamentalism which the sanctity and union of marriage acknowledges as it's crux and base in that gay unions also hold the integral elements of mutual attraction, intimacy and the willingness to commit to a legally binding agreement formatted on a two party grouping of adults which in no way is dependent on procreation given that individual facet is not a requirement towards the obtainment of a recognized joining of the dual parties involved.
--DAMN!!!

LOL!!!!
It's so funny when you attempt eloquence. Do it some more! "crux and base" "binding agreement formatted" "individual facet" "obtainment of a recognized joining of the dual parties involved."

YUK!YUK!YUK! You're killin' us! "...the basic fundamentalism which is the sanctity.." "two party grouping of adults" Too funny!

Have thee two idiots gotten lose again and stating trouble for the residents of Glendora, California?

Why of course they are!

Federal laws dictates that EVERY city must provide a certain percentage of low income housing. Hopefully, Glendora will keep that in mind in this situation.

Trying to bulldoze low wage peoples again, sounds more like what D. Wayne Leech, Gene Murabito and Douglas Tessitor like to do in their spare time (slip sliding shankers).

You have proven nothing except your own hypocrisy.

I support marriage equality and you do not. You are lying about your support for polygamy and incest marriage.

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. Park & Ride.

Woodtick is a moron with no real argument. And he is also a liar, I have never "ran away".

The no longer PRIVATE BSA is holding its conference in TN today. Because of the gays forcing their way into the PRIVATE organization they are now refering to it as the "New" Alternative BSA. Wouldn't be easier to just start your own scouting organization and name it GLBTSA? it would have saved thousands of dollars by not having to change the rule guidlines on what a scout should be. This is another huge inconvinience to the private and hetero community. The GAY cult has an agenda, and that is to fuck up what has been right for ever ... You homos need to start your own schools, and social organizations just like we did. The BSA has lowered its standards and as long as the gay cult continues this roll we will all be second class.

No. I'm calling Don Sclio ineloquent. It's a simple concept really dummy. But glad you asked for help.

Remember! There are no stupid posts. Only stupid posters like yourself. Always ask for help. Sound it out.

There is nothing horrific about being gay.
And I guess you're talking about Europe's fear of Muslims. Is it a rational fear that is based in fact? Or is it just a bunch of people who spend way too much time believing that they have the right to inflict themselves onto other people?
Then you can't blame religion on the lack of ss couples being called married.

You asserted fundamentalism is going the way of the dinosaur. I proved otherwise. Moreover, the Islamic world is being swept by an new wave.

You should be a scoutmaster Bluto now that it's OK to be gay. You could teach the boys gay stuff. Like redecorating the campsite and such.
