Many homosexuals defend marriage as one man and one woman; every gay was born of opposite sex union. Same sex cohabitation rights exist now; we don't need special rights to rewrite marriage laws based on sexual orientation.

Or, as some would say, equality.

No one care about what you think, because you are incapable of thought.

Feel free to reenter a conversation and indicate a legitimate reason to deny equal protection of the law for same sex couples to marry. I don't think you can. in fact, each new post proves you cannot.

one wonders what you will do if the US Supreme Court legalizes same sex marriage? Have you thought about relocation to Canada? Oh wait, they too have same sex marriage.

Legal marriage is a privilege; same sex couples don't meet the standards. So sorry.

Civil unions and domestic partnerships are perfect compromise. That way, we get the rights same sex couples deserve and need without changing the definition of marriage.

Nice rationalization, but you are wrong. Legal marriage does provide rights and protections, and has been ruled not only a right, but a fundamental right by the US Supreme Court on 14 separate occasions. They have separately held that fundamental rights may not be put to a vote. The definition of marriage is irrelevant if it unconstitutionally is made up to exclude US citizens from equal protection under the law absent a compelling state interest.

Thank you, for airing your ignorance in public.

Would you say the state has a vital and compelling interest for keeping same sex marriage out of gender segregated institutions like prisons?

Then note, one of the 14 occasions lides cited above includes the right for a prisoner to marry another prisoner. Same sex marriage would be a disaster for everyone, prisoner and guard alike.

No it wouldn't. And the US Supreme Court has already held, as you have indicate that prisoners have a right to marry.

Funny how you attempt, frankly even funnier if you did this inadvertently, to equal same sex marriage with criminal activity.

Grow up.

You are too funny fool. If you were as intelligent as you are funny, you would be a genius.

As fate would have it, however, you don't even appear to be able to make an on topic argument. Preferring instead to live in your fantasy world promoting same sex incest and polygamy.

Do you really mean to argue FOR those things, you do you honestly believe that you are making a valid point against same sex marriage? Because if you really believe your arguments are relevant, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

Did you notice that you just posted and didn't say anything relevant to the topic? Yeah, that's being irrelevant, which is a step above your usual posts that are simply insane.

Feel free to indicate a legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry. Thus far, you haven't been able to do so.

I've never argued pursuit of happiness, nor need I do so, even though it was a founding principal established in the Declaration of Independence.
So long as the constitution contains equal protection of the law, such an argument is unnecessary.
Feel free to present a rational argument to the contrary.
You're parsing my comments.

There will be no further response to your statements so take your "adult" dominance game elsewhere.

That's an interesting take...because if in fact we limit it to two consenting adults..why not two brothers??
Devil's advocate?

Well, that's not the problem. The problem is that the government is subsidizing marriage. Anyone can "marry" another as long as the meaning behind it is just a symbolic promise. When the government turns it into a financial contract with tax breaks, they are endorsing and decreasing the tax burden of a political point of view. That's what makes it unconstitutional.

Even if you call it a break for breeders, since when is it the government's job to keep up the livestock that make up the labor force? Bad intentions and bad results, because every good ol' boy system will only work if it only profits a select few. You either break the democracy or you ruin the value of the kickback you promised.
