Gay marriage

Mar 28, 2013 Read more: Los Angeles Times 59,241
The U.S. Supreme Court is considering two controversial cases involving whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry: Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on gay marriage, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which since 1996 has defined marriage for federal purposes as a union between a man and a woman.

Its not about "casting judgement on gays", but of discussing marriage as a matter of public policy, and the potential negative impact of redefining it. Not all gay folks are in lock step behind the rainbow flag in redefining marriage.
Not all blacks opposed slavery either.
Not all jews opposed Hitler either.
Not all women opposed bans on women voting either.

That just proves a few gays & lesbians can be bigots as well.

But it is admittedly your goal is to keep polygamy banned. See how you are. I am your mirror now son. When you say something stupid, I'll be there with my mirror. Count on it. I have little else to do until my g.f. comes back from work and being that I am "crippled" and "drunk".
Geez...... keeping polygamy banned will consume about zero resources and time.

What is "informed" consent? If a tail wagging is sufficient, it's just YOU who isn't trying to cope with our progressing world. Just being a KKKristian who doesn't think dogs are your fellow men, aren't you?

Nope, procreation may be a purpose & function of SOME marriages, but obviously not ALL marriages.

""Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, who have been a couple for more than 50 years were the first same-sex couple to be legally married in the United States on February 12, 2004.""

Should February 12th be a national gay holiday? How about if you just move it to February 14 and make Valentines Day an national gay holiday? Or, if not a holiday, a celebration!

Christians took over the Winter Solstice Celebration which was held on December 25th for thousands of years and made it their own, why can't gays just take over Valentines day and make it their own? Of course everyone is invited to the party!

Like the Gallaghers, gays know how to party!

Redefined? Yes
Because the old legal definition of marriage unconstitutionally banned same-sex couples from marrying, so it had to be expanded.

I thought that was pretty obvious.

I guess Iím not gayÖÖ even secretly. What I meant, of course, is that it is not right for a person of one sex to assume the sexual roles of the other sex. At some point, a gay man will have to assume the sexual role of the woman, as a lesbian will have to assume the sexual role of the man. This is all very perverted. And please donít say that this is not perverted for homosexuals, otherwise, no perversion is perverted for perverts.
I don't know what kind of porn you've been watching, but I can assure you I've NEVER assumed the sexual role of a woman; neither has my husband.

Since we're both men, the only role we can assume- sexually or otherwise- is that of a man.

I hope you can understand this some day but I doubt you have the courage to face the truth.
The slave owners said exactly the same things about ending slavery: Ending slavery would "threaten every aspect of our culture." Because we had always had slavery we should always have slavery.

Just because we have homophobia in the world today does not mean we should always have homophobia.

You need to give up your brainwashing and accept that each of us own our own lives and each of us has an innate right to live it how we want. And that includes if we want to have sex with members of our own sex. The highest moral obligation is to mind your own business and respect the rights of others. You are just like that gay couple making demands on the baker and violating his rights to be left alone. Completely identical. You have more in common with the gays in here than you do with freedom loving Americans.

Gays are not going back into the closet, nor should they. If you don't like it no one cares, you need to get over it.

1 Peter 4:15 KJV, "But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters."

We're not deleting any definitions of marriage, we're ADDING TO the definition of marriage.

Instead of marriage being only one man & one woman, it's now:

-One man & one woman
or
-One man & one man
or
-One woman & one woman

ADDITION, not subtraction.

Procreation has been an assumption of marriage. It has always been assumed that procreation will take place within the marital relationship. This is the reason for the interdiction of persons of close parentage to marry.

So you assume a 80 y/o couple is going to procreate then they get married?

I think you're going to be disappointed.

None of your comments above qualify as arguments or rebuttals. You have been reduced to irrelevancy.
Nothing you posted required a rebuttal.

Which is why you anti-gays keep losing in court after court and state after state.

What is NOT perfectly fine is for the government to sanction and bless every sort of perverse intimacy. The government has no business there, yet, they are doing this where it concerns homosexuals. Marriage is being misused by influential gay and progressivist lobbies, with their allies in government, as a means to achieve social acceptance and approval for homosexual perversion, while at the same time undermining Judeo-Christian morality, because these people really hate Christ and Christians. There will be a massive backlash coming, and it wonít be pretty. THe pendulum swings one way, and then it swings back.
Hmmmm, your racist friend said exactly the same thing about inter-racial marriages.

Still waiting for the "massive backlash".....

I guess they're too busy drinking beer and having sex with their sister.

Actually we are quite normal, we have kids & grandkids, & big happy families.

If you anti-gays would simply stop trying to discriminate against us, we wouldn't have anything to worry about anymore than any other family.

Really?

So an 80 y/o opposite-sex couple that gets married is likely to procreate and needs protection NOT to procreate?

Pssst, her 80 y/o vagina has about as much chance of carrying a child as your crusty dusty rusty musty mangina!

<quoted text> I says it. You got this hear Sheep feller claiming that he's got a husbane. From whut little I have seed one of them gays what is together is sort of prissy and femanime like a woman. And whey they dose it one of them has to be the one that lets the other one put it in the butt or mouth. I reckon the one that gives is the man and the one that takes it is playing like he is a she. I has heard that there is something called a bull dyke. Ain't that the lesbane who is manly?
You can't have it both way. You can't want two gay fellers to marry up and both of them be the feller. One of them has to play like he is the woman, or maybe he was just born that way likes a lot of gays claim.
There is one way around this though. Let one of them have that operation. Cut the thang off and have a woman thang sowed in it's place. But he would then be a she and a she can't be a gay now can it? And the husbane would not be a gay any more either. They could git married up any where then. Sheep, you ever thought about doing it?
Why would I want to pretend to be a woman?

Your arguments are deteriorating badly. They have gone from dumb to dumber. Yet you still claim victory. Danth's Law. Lose the argument? Just declare victory and insist you won. That's the beauty of Topix. But in real life you've obviously lost a long time ago. As in you have no valid argument.
Marriage. There is no one right way.
P.S. You wouldn't make sport of my disabilities if I was gay.
Hmmm, if I had no valid argument and lost in "real life", then polgya-marriage would be legal in all 50 states.

Put the brakes on your crip-mobile while I check the news......

Nope, still illegal in all 50 states.
