What the hell does the "waitress" lie have to do with a frivolous law suit? You can't sue someone for not tipping.
And as far as this nebulous comment goes:
"the two idiots that sued a NY taxi company for another made up B.S. lie"
Do you have any idea how often that happens? Could you be more specific?
In law, frivolous litigation is the practice of starting or carrying on lawsuits that, due to their lack of legal merit, have little to no chance of being won. Your side knows it hasn't a chance, and now, because of the stupidity of homophobes, when the 10th Circuit Court rejects the state's claim, gay marriage will become legal in every State in the 10th Circuit, not just Utah.
How more specific can I be. I am only couter acting to your accusation of frivolous law suits by hetero's. Take your fat head out of your ass !

Don't you think we should require ss couples to mutually procreate at least SOME of the time???

Hey you brought the issue up. If you want to honestly equate to marriage, ss couples should at least match old couples, sick couples and couples with a choice. That's more than fair!

So weak? Who didn't prove their case in Prop 8 litigation? This matter has been litigated and it is over. These are the finding of facts in this case:
Marriage is a civil, not religious, matter.[94]:FOF 19 p.60
How the State defines civil marriage.[94]:FOF 34, p.67
Sexual orientation refers to an enduring pattern of sexual, affectional or romantic desires for and attractions to men, women or both sexes. An individual’s sexual orientation can be expressed through self-identification, behavior or attraction.[94]:FOF 43, p.71–72
Individuals do not generally choose their sexual orientation. An individual does not, through conscious decision, therapeutic intervention or any other method, change sexual orientation.[94]:FOF 46, p.74
The State has no interest in asking gays and lesbians to change their orientation or in reducing the number of gays and lesbians in California.[94]:FOF 47, p.76
Marriage has benefits which the State and individuals gain from, which apply to same and opposite sex marriage alike.[94]:FOF 35–41, p.67–71
Same sex couples are identical to opposite sex couples in terms of characteristics relevant to successful marriage and union.[94]:FOF 48, p.79
Marrying a person of the opposite sex is an unrealistic option for gays and lesbians.[94]:FOF 51, p.79
Domestic partnerships lack the social meaning associated with marriage.[94]:FOF 52, p.80
Marriage of other groups, controversial on comparable grounds at the time, such as race or ethnicity, has not reduced the "vibrancy" or importance of marriage as a social institution, although many people raised concerns of its degradation at the time.[94]:FOF 66–67, p.66
The costs and harm (to the State and to lesbians and gays) resulting from denial of marriage to same-sex couples.[94]:FOF 64–68, p.77–78
A parent's gender is not a factor in a child's adjustment. An individual's sexual orientation does not determine whether that individual can be a good parent. Children raised by gay or lesbian parents are as likely as children raised by heterosexual parents to be healthy, successful and well-adjusted.[94]:FOF 70, p.95
Gay and lesbian adoption is widespread and is supported and encouraged in California law, providing evidence concerning same sex couples and parenting, with around 18% of same sex couples in California raising children.[94]:FOF 69–73, p.94–96 As a corollary, this provides evidence of fact that Proposition 8 is not rationally connected to improving parenting, since it makes no attempt to amend or revoke state approval of any aspect of parenting by non-married same sex couples.[94]:Pp.Int. 3 p.127–128
Gays and lesbians have a long history of being victims of discrimination.[94]:FOF 74, p.96
Religious beliefs that gay and lesbian relationships are sinful or inferior to heterosexual relationships harm gays and lesbians.[94]:FOF 77, p.101
You lie about the argument, and then ignore that and make another whining, deceitful rant.

You bet Texas S is As S backwards

Houston's openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, has wedded her longtime partner at a private home in California, even as her home state of Texas bans such same-sex marriages.

Procreation isn't required of ANY couple.

The Prop 8 case has nothing to do with your claim that gays are denied marriage for the 'sole reason that they are gay'.

The hilarious thing is, you can't even get past the very basic essence of marriage;

A cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior making ss marriage an oxymoron.

Easily half of the gay claim to marriage on here is 'procreation isn't required'.

I simply noted that requiring ss couples to AT LEAST equate to old couples, sick couples and couples that have a choice if they want to equate to marriage. I even left out the vast majority of marriages that DO procreate.

That is an incredibly fair requirement!

Right?

Smile.

A few facts about homosexuals. They account for 1.7% of the total population in the US. An estimated one in 20 teenage boys and adult men sexually abuse children, and an estimated one teenage girl or adult woman in every 3,300 females molests children. What does that tell you about the worth of the homosexual lifestyle? In our prisons, homosexuals account for a walloping 75% of the total prison population. They are child molesters, murderers, thieves, rapists, drug pushers and much more. Down through time, every civilization that allowed homosexuals to have free reign has collapsed. There’s a simple reason for that. Decent people have families with children. Their priorities are to raise their kid to be good, law abiding citizens. They work hard in their chosen professions with the idea of making positive contributions that will help design new products, offer services that will build a good customer base and conduct their lives in an orderly, dignified manor. In other words, they are a credit to themselves, their community and their employer.
On the other hand, homosexuals can’t give birth to children without connecting in illicit sexual behavior. They have no concern for themselves or their community, except to pander to their baser desires. They do not work to improve the world, but rather look to find ways of tearing down good and decent organizations, churches, clubs and societies. Their only goal in life is to promote filth and recruit new partners. Beyond that, they are not interested in decent, moral behavior.
Homosexuals will respond to these facts by writing filthy slurs and using nasty, vulgar language. But they cannot refute these facts with truth, only with lies to try to dissuade people from knowing the truth. Homosexuals are disgusting criminals, ridden with vile diseases that spread to those who engage in their barbaric behavior.

How very clever of you, to put words in his mouth, then attack him for those words. Why did you say that it is wrong to legislate marriage and then applaud the same issue?
