Gay marriage

Full story: Los Angeles Times

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.

No, it isn't. You're ever the drama queen. Every piece of legislation that honors SSM specifically exempts Churches from having to recognize, or perform, SSM ceremonies. There are, however, a number of mainline denominations that DO recognize them, primarily the UUC and the UCC, as well as MCC.

You'll go to your grave thinking you've lost something, now that we have equality. Time, however, will tell another story.

The gay mafia thinks it can force Christians to participate in same sex wedding ceremonies but they still have religious freedom because the Christians can still pray for God's forgiveness.
I'm not sure what right-wing blogs you're reading, but Churches are exempt from having to perform SS ceremonies. Churches have ALWAYS had the right to deny services for weddings. I spent 30 years employed in the UCC, the most liberal of mainline denominations. We denied a lot of people, in our congregation, because the couple weren't members. Had we said yes, in our community, we would have become a wedding mill with multiple weddings per weekend for couples who we would never see again.

The far right needs for you to believe that SS weddings will be forced on all Churches. In fact, Churches have always had the right to choose who they will, or will not marry.

Stop listening to talking points, grampy, and use the brain that God gave you.

Why?

Respect is earned.

Polygamy is in no way comparable to my marriage, so why would they automatically be entitled to respect?

Polygamy is a more natural lifestyle than monogamy. Monogamy is culturally forced upon us. Look at the problems that causes.

Legalize it. But noooooooo. It might threaten the case for SSM. So you say it is "bad" and you must allow at least one week or whatever between marriages. If they overlap you go to jail. Look at the problems that causes.

That's why I have none for you. Now you're going to say you don't have any for me. And keep this silly game going, because that's all you've got.

You have no arguments against polygamy except "I don't respect it". That is not a valid argument.

The rest of your post was just too rambling...
Wait a minute?..since WHEN is "monkey" a racial slur?

Rose, you seem to like being a self-fulfilling prophecy. I mention monkey and you climb a tree.

Other than my often made observation that gays consider themselves "normal" because IT'S THE BONOBOS!!!" I don't see a potential slur there. Perhaps you're a bit body conscious about some African body feature stereotypes but that was not implied, nor was it my meaning. I refer to "drowning the monkey" because all the monkey knows is how to climb a tree to escape its enemies. I consider the metaphor a "finishing move", so to speak, and umm..... I think I can see the frail ego props you fall back on when such is one's fate.

It's a little late in life for all that, Rose. If you spent your life hiding in the safety of the herd and not experiencing life for yourself, nobody can help you now.

The difference being I never said you have to respect me, yet you keep telling me I have to respect polygamists.

I don't, because respect is earned, and I get to determine who gets my respect.

Whether you believe my arguments are valid is irrelevant. It won't make polygamy legal just because you think my arguments aren't valid.

The proof of the validity of my arguments is that polyga-marriage remains illegal in all 50 states.

Where's your proof?

Mikey, just answer the simple yes/no question. Would you accept replacing all marriage with a universal contract of civil union that provides financial benefits to any small group, whether a couple or a triad or whatever, and does not have any bearing on sexual relationships?

Yes or no.... or you're talking out your @ss.

I simply said that polygamy deserves the same respect as your marriage. You are either confused or don't know what a hypocrite is. It is you who demands respect for your marriage which you gleefully deny to people you don't approve of. You don't have to agree to respect it but you can't use that as a reason to deny it. Many people don't respect SSM. They are wrong just like you are wrong. You want respect? You need to give it first.

So sorry. Tough sh!t. Don't like it? Don't do it.

Ah good times!
