Gay marriage

There are 61385 comments on the Los Angeles Times story from Mar 28, 2013, titled Gay marriage. In it, Los Angeles Times reports that:

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.

Blah! Blah! Blah!
You always have the choice. You just indulge your compulsive behavior. You're not unique, but you represent about 1 to 2 percent of the population and your habits are very disruptive without providing any value other than political value to fringe elements.
It is not illegal to be gay, but gay marriage is an official endorsement of a minor psychological problem that will ultimately lead to absolutely lunatic agendas for gay affirmative action and special protections of public sexual conduct enforced by law.
It's all about money. If it wasn't about money, you'd keep your mouth shut. By your own words, you don't want to share your habits with everyone, so why do you need public recognition?
M....O....N....E....Y.....!!!
Next week, you'll demand a 24 hour police escort while you put the moves on everyone at the office....but that's next week.
Why would I choose to be gay, if it was about money wouldn't i just choose to be straight and just get the benefits that way. We didn't choose to be this way.

On the other hand what are you joking! Money has never crossed my mind personally, and it's about showing your love for the other person. You however must marry because of the monetary benefits? We just want to be treated like everyone else. What's wrong with wanting to be just like everyone else. And what happens if your significant other is in the hospital, you may not be able to see them because you are not legally considered family. There are many stories on people not being able to visit their loved ones, as they died and If you look it up you will surely find many stories.

What would happen if you faced the truth with courage? What if you didn't demand that people deny reality in the vain attempt to help you find yourself?
And yet, that piece of paper is all ANY couple has which identifies them as legally married.

The reality is I'm married; everyone I know sees me as married, including family, friend, neighbors, and the govt.

What would happen if you faced to the truth that there isn't anything you can do about it?

Would you then finally kill yourself? We all hope so.

Really?

Many couples have the piece of paper and no semblance of a marriage.

Ss couples have no semblance of a marriage ever.

Why would you want me dead if you didn't know what I am saying is true?

Admit it. You are not married. Your relationship is an oxymoron.

We ALL know it.

Hunty, the denial is ALL YOURS. We're married, in each and every sense of the word. You're the one who is denying that, so the denial is all yours.

What have your rants been able to do to slow the progress of marriage equality?

You're still an impotent internet troll with no power over anyone.

There are core identities, common to all heterosexual couples that SS couples cannot equate to. Clearly distinct relationships. You know this, but feign ignorance.
Isn't it cute how you divert from the topic at hand? Apparently, you can't offer a valid argument against equality, so you attempt to skew the topic. That's pretty pathetic.

Are you asking for a "Big Boy" argument along the lines of "They get gubbermint money, so I deserve some too!"?
Yeah, that's pretty much what expect from your witless banter.

Let me know when you are ready to offer a big boy argument.

The "gubbermint money" argument is pretty juvenile.

Many couples ARE married and choose to not have children. Please have mommy explain the real concept of family to you.

Families can be created through multiple means, including marriage, male-female reproduction, adoption, in vitro fertilization, surrogacy, etc, etc.
What the "etc., etc."?
The lame attempts by anti-gays to denigrate our families is one of the main reasons we won federal recognition of our marriages.
Keep up the good work!
Yet you denigrate plural marriage families, odd.

Hmmm, and yet the courts all disagree with your constitutional interpretation. What a shocker!
Our laws are written by legislators, not courts. The courts have refused to obey law and force a new standard of sex segregation on marriage without the consent of the governed.

Real marriage has always been and will always be a committed relationship between one man and one woman. Demanding it ain't so doesn't make it so.

It is the only relationship that reproduces naturally, a father and mother raising their children.

It is the only relationship that is the birthing place of every single other type of relationship.

It is the only relationship that reunites two completely unique parts. A complimentary union, instead of a duplicated half.

It is the only relationship that sexually fit together by design. There is no abusive violation of design.

It is the only relationship that restores a male and female to the very original roots of our creation, pre-gender.

It is the only union that blends two different genders bringing perfect balance. A same gender union lacks diversity and is off balance.

All this says nothing about the cultural, historic and religious distinctions that marriage wholly embraces.

It clearly has, needs and deserves a special and unique definition. It is absurd and sacrilegious to equate ss couples.

Are you a real American?

Brave Americans can support equal protection of the law even for those who believe differently from themselves. That is what some call real freedom.

...and you're incapable of expressing your love without gubbermint endorsement of your relationship? I've already said, make all forms of financial pooling of resources a civil union that has no basis on sexual relationships.

Jeese, when you post poetry, you don't even need the parse bunny to chop up your delusions for you. It comes pre-packaged!

It wouldn't be so bad if you were preparing some sort of logical progression but this is pure Fluffernutter!

And there's Little Mister Monster Mutation's bottom line; a word.

You think heterosexual marriages deserve elevated status and a distinct word. If that's the case, you'll have to come up with a new word because we now also own the word "marriage".

Marriage equality exists because ensuring rights for SS couples doesn't infringe on the right of others. We know that you happen to think otherwise, but you're wrong. My marriage takes noting from yours, other than the fact that your psychotic alter ego lesbian is jealous.

Troll on, Pastor.

We've been doing that for centuries.

But, we have finally become tired of spending our hard earned tax dollars to subsidize the marriages of straight folks, to the detriment of our own families.

And you well know that marriage itself is about more than the government. I suspect you don't post this stuff in marriage forums frequented by straight married couples, do you?

Although it might be fun to watch.
