So... There are differences between heterosexual marriages and same-sex marriages. Those differences do not invalidate a gay couple's right to join their lives in a religious and legal ceremony and calling it "marriage". That's what the courts have been deciding and that's what society is largely accepting.
Bottom line, no one gives a damn about your nitpicking.
If you call poison 'sugar', is that nitpicking?

You clearly don't speak for intelligent people.

Idiot.

Funny thing about your "facts"...none seem to have any relevant backing.
Now...the world is a big place. Where else on the globe does the term "default families" appear other than in your made up universe?
HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM???
LO!!!
Okay, that's all your opinion.

Now try posting some facts and lets see how you do.

"Freedom" by asking the state to step into one's personal intimate relationship? Brilliant Don Con.

and check those nations in history and see if they accepted slavery or second class citizenship rights for women, Never look to history to find morality, there is little there
Also check to see why ssm never sustained itself, never established deep roots.

again, I dont look to history for morality, in fact that it was not usual there, is perhaps a good reason to support it now.

Hey Einstein....
..claiming you have a YouTube video as a tool to dispel any argument against a stance you may have in here is not the brightest technique to win over hearts. YouTube videos also include 2 donkies humping as well as a myriad of other SHIT which has nothing to do with the topic at hand added to the fact many of these videos are faked.
If you cannot spell out why a position you hold is righteous without pointing to a God damned bumpersticker, National Enquirer article, some hearsay comment or a YouTube video as some sort of proof it's doubtful you have a leg to stand on but go on. Argue as you see fit shitforbrains but just don't get all twisted up you get laughed at in the end.
LOL!!!
I "hold the position" that you are a loud mouthed idiot. I also "hold the position" that same sex marriage should be allowed shitforbrains.

Just don't get all twisted up and laughed at.(Just kidding, you are getting laughed at as I type).

What are you talking about McFly? No "freedom" was taken away? More like it was given due to the Lawrence case, free to engage in whatever sexual activity in private with whatever consenting adults(s) one wishes. Stop drinking the alcohol spiked rainbow punch.

Lets try a few

Spain in the late middle ages with the Spanish inquisition... nope didnít have SSM and was a totally immoral government.. check

How about Nazi Germany, didnít have SSM supported and a totally evil and corrupt government... check

Now lets try American Indian tribes before the discovery of the western Hemisphere by Europe, oops, sever did support SSM so we will have to set that aside

How about...England during the Plantagenet rulers... you get my drift?

Not societies I would look to for morality or the way to treat people

The more you look at history, the more you should be glad you were not there.

Fortunatly we dont live then, we live now, the dark ages are over, you lost.

No. "We" are not angry, only you are angry.

That's OK, it brings out your inner moron for our amusement.

Of course it has bearing, that's why you are cornered.

You are a pretending a fraudulent impostor relationship is a prevalent world view. I simply pointed out that there is not one single country on all of human history that has embraced calling SS couples married.

Meanwhile , every single country in human history has embraced marriage.

Smirk.

You have no interest in protecting children you sadist bitch. You're just so hell bent against gays you'd just as soon forget their welfare.
Oh, now we are talking about orphanages.

Damn you can't even backpedal decently.

Given their stance on gay marriage it holds it's own ground given it's righteous with or without little ol' me.
You're just getting my feedback as a straight male. And you don't like it.

You say a lot of idiotic, deceitful things. Makes one wonder if you aren't really a blonde lesbian.

You might want to check...
