Gays, Lesbians and ANYONE who believes that ALL American Citizens should be treated EQUALLY are far better than idiots like yourself who try and justify their personal bigotry and hate!!!
Government has a responsibility to treat every citizen equally, citizens do not have such an obligation. However if defective individuals use aggression against other normal individuals then normal individuals have the right to use any means possible to defend themselves and their property.

I am surprised that gays do not burn more churches to the ground.

You sound just like Sheepie. lides was correct in his first statement and many others. In a Republic the majority does not get to vote on the rights of minorities. We can't expect a liberal socialist like yourself to understand that. Liberal socialists believe in democracy where the 51% controls the 49%, and it is the result of suffering a grave illness. It is practically a mental illness to want to violate the rights of others and use force against them. Your aggression against the gay community can mean one thing and one thing only.

You are a closet gay who is lonely and desires same sex company.

Red Herrings like Argumentum ad Hominem and the Appeal to Ridicule get you nowhere.

" ... The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections ...

Again, Bruno....I'm NOT forcing ANYTHING on the general public, but I will CONTINUE to support the fight for full Equality and that DOESN'T require your approval or acceptance:-[)

I guess what you displace in your posts would be considered love and compassion for your fellow American, right? Damn, I apologize for calling you names then........NOT!!!

I'm NOT frustrated......no reason to.......maybe you HAVEN'T been following the news lately......but Marriage Equality has been winning in the Courts and State Legislation lately....what frustrates me is granting stays when the guidelines AREN'T bring followed.......but in the end........all it is is a delay and NOTHING more!!!

No, Bruno........my "LIFESTYLE" changes as I get older......who I am HASN'T changed since I came to terms with my sexual orientation in my early 20's!!!

I'm warning ss couples, you are setting yourself up to always look inferior.

Always missing a gender.

Always absolutely mutually barren.

Always depriving children of either a mother or father.

And for gay couples, don't even hint about intimacy!

These things will only become more apparent the closer you align yourself to real marriage. Do you really think people won't notice the difference???

Don't get angry at me for saying it, I'm trying to warn you!

<quoted text> Thar you goes again. You writes that marriage between a black and a white is something like a man marrying a man. You don't defand your opinion. You just say wrong. I says it again. Two mens marrying ain't the same as a man of any color marrying a woman of any color. You gays ain't normal or natural. You can't keep private stuff private. You gots to tell ever body. When you dose they nose ever than about what goes on when you and husbane goes to bed. That meens that one has to be the one on top. I reckon that that usually is the husband. That makes the pretend wife the submissavive one.; You dig?
You'd reckon wrong again as usual.

What makes you think one spouse has to be dominant and the other submissive?

Just because you live in the stone age doesn't mean everyone else does.

<quoted text> You is mixing up what libral judges is doing with what the people thanks. Rite thar in Califorfnia the people don voted again two fellers marrying and one judge don overruled the people. I nose that you thanks that is a peach and it mite be for you, but it ain't for ever body else. You is like a kid at Halloween hiding behind a falseface. You thinks you is winning. You ain't.
We won the LAST FOUR statewide votes on the issue. All you anti-gays can do is point to votes that happened 6 or 8 or 10 years ago. The country has changed a lot in the past decade.

Call it whatever you want; all I care is that same-sex couples will soon be able to marry in all 50 states.
