Brian, this is an EXTREMELY poorly thought out argument.

Your "argument" is that same sex marriage induces corruption in government officials who are tempted to violate the BAN on same sex marriage.

Remove the ban and _ALL_ that corruption vanishes.

Marriage Equality does not cause corruption, it CURES it.

They want to justify corruption by gaining power and changing laws they don't like; this is why we must keep marriage one man and one woman.

So your whole argument is really just you mischaracterizing your opponent and then repeating that lie.

I am offended by you. I know I am not the only one and it is not without good reason.

So you have no solid evidence for your wild assertion. You are drowning and grasping at any straw man.

You have posted no evidence supporting a reasonable objection for ensuring that all citizens enjoy free exercise of their rights.

I can see by all your posts that you in fact do love CO2. You might want to cut back on it a bit.

This doesn't address Nuggin's post. What you have described is corruption resulting because of the ban and not from lifting the ban.

Now you are arguing for the elimination of fundamentalist political leadership. A subject I can get on board with.

Brian, stop.

Just stop. You aren't convincing anyone here that you are anything but gay. We KNOW. You KNOW. You know that we know. We know that you know that we know.

It's over.

You protested too much.

You can fight against gay marriage all you want, but you've already lost. It's here forever. Within a couple of years no one is going to give a crap.

And you'll still be standing in the corner waving a giant sign that says: "I'm not gay! Please believe me!"

Just get over it, come out of the closet and try and forgive yourself.

Um, newsflash bub - the Constitution doesn't dictate biology.

Ergo, according to your "logic" rights should also differ. In which case, blacks, gays, women, are not privy to the same rights as men because they are not equal.

You heard it here first folks. Brian's gonna re-write the Constitution and when that happens your whole genome could be radically altered by it. Darn creationists and their codes.

He hasn't changed it, he has merely ignored it.

I am sure this will come as a great surprise to you, mainly because you have the mentality of a child and seem utterly ignorant to the workings of the world. The system REGULARLY allows laws to go unenforced. Police can refuse to arrest someone under a particular law (ever get a warning for a speeding ticket?), prosecutors can decide not to file charges, and judges can throw out cases, or in fact invalidate laws.

This is not to defend the Montgomery County clerk, who knows their actions are not legal, and that they are not going to be upheld by any court. They are simply using their office to make a point. You know, free speech.

Why do you hate free speech?

Let me ask you this. If you don't participate in same sex relationships yourself, how many of you would like and/or approve of your kids(son or daughter) being in a same sex relationship? From what I have experienced in life with people is that it is not a big deal until it affects them.
'Smart apps', eh? When cyborg technology finally becomes a reality then creationists could potentially join the 21st century!

hahaha!!! What???
You seriously think that, without laws against incest, fathers would try to marry their daughters???
And you seriously think that anyone so screwed up would care what the law says???
And you think you wrote some kind of argument against same sex marriages above?!?

Science considers anything *may* have the *potential* to be possible, until such time the concept is falsified. You have yet to falsify the non-falsifiable concept.

Would bacon frying in a skillet in microgravity still turn out crispy and delicious?

As long as it was close to the sun I guess.

Anyway, now I got a vision of the Falcon flying through the asteroids, except all the rocks have been replaced with strips of bacon.

... bacon...

... the very existence of bacon? Is **almost** sufficient proof to make a **theist** of me.

:)

And then I remember that not **everyone** has access to delicious bacon-- and indeed, some are prevented from enjoying it for various reasons, both economic and biological.

So I am reminded again, that there are no gods who give a crap about humanity.

That'll never work. There are already billions of married people, not just one man and one woman.
