Homosexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in how homosexual live!

No significant percent of the homosexual population has 'married' in ANY country that allows it, and studies have shown that few such 'marriages' are even exclusive relationships.

The homosexual 'marriage' movement is a hate based political charade attacking what others hold sacred.

No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No economically or physically unequal genders are involve. No child is ever born as a direct result, and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Having both is one of the most accurate statistical predictions of a child's future success in life.

Homosexual themselves overwhelmingly reject 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

Mercy! Did you READ the article. They say homosexual 'couples' are 'flocking' to Iowa to marry, yet only 4500 such 'marriages' have taken place. The openly admit that many of the 'couples' were not from Iowa.

If you look at the FACTS, Iowa has a population of 3,200,000. Mainstream social science estimates of the homosexual population is 3% of the total. Radical homosexual hate groups like the HRC say it's 10%. Even at the lower figure, that means Iowa has about 96,000 homosexuals. If you ignore the FACT that many Iowa homosexual 'marriages' are by out of staters, that would still mean that well over 90% of homosexuals in Iowa have rejected the concocted nonsense of homosexual 'marriage.'

If you went along with the article that homosexuals from throughout Mid America can come to Iowa and 'marry,' then homosexual participation in 'marriage' in Mid America is a tiny fraction of one percent!

Homoexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in how homosexual live.

Thank you, they wish to destroy all things spiritual. They also seek to brainwash young children and make their perverse seem normal and pure.
In the UK it is now illegal for a teacher to mention or refer to a young students parents as mommy or daddy because the left wing moral web destroyers, aka gay mafia, consider it a sexist remark. This is a disgusting and perverse war on the entire family structure and our own president, it would appear, has sold his own soul. Truly disgusting regardless of all the rainbow glitter they portray it to be, one big ruse.

If you look at the FACTS, every same-sex couple who got married and who will get married fully embraces same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage is available for the couples who WANT to get married and, just like opposite-sex marriage, is not intended to force people to marry.

If the GOP should gain control and try to pass a ban to eliminate a right that is already in place......the State of Iowa would have a HUGE legal fight on it's hands similar to what is happening in California with Prop 8.

The end result would clearly show that hate is the only reason and hate is not grounds to harm a proportion of the population and that would make the ban UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!

Not only is it not a right, but there isn't much right about it at all. Ya had your space years ago but ya just gotta have it all. The only hate going on here is of your own body, mind, spirit, parents, and grandparents. Just because ya found another misfit doesn't make it right. Drop the pom poms and go to bed already, sheesh.

It would certainly be most interesting. Should SCOTUS decline the Perry case, a non-binding precedent from the Ninth Circuit would influence Eighth Circuit. Conflicting decisions could force SCOTUS to act...

Frankly, I can live without the intrigue.

I know......but nevertheless.......a right granted......CAN NOT be removed or eliminated just because someone doesn't like it......and after 3 years of Gay and Lesbian Couples getting married.....it would create the same type of situation that took place with Prop 8.

Still C/P this same BS post I see. How many topix have you added it to today? It's already been refuted as BS by me and MANY others, give it up already! You have NO idea what the F... your talking about. Your still a hypocritical bigoted embarrassment no matter who you call your self today, your one sick Christian if you can call it that and I'll call out your 'lies' on every post I see you on from now on!

After reading your posts, the one who needs to stay away from your kids is you. You've shortchanged them enough just by being genetically related to them, don't compound it by "teaching" them to be as irrationally hateful and willfully ignorant as you have chosen to be. Do them a favor, let them be raised by adults.

Another silly bigot who searches out stories of supposedly gay people acting badly.

Would you like me to go out and find a few news stories about straight men behaving badly, and project their behavior on you?

That would be just as irrational as your post.

Does even simple logic escape you?

Oh look, another alleged hetero with homoerotic fantasies to share. It's just like I said cupcake, your kids deserve better than you. So, dear, unless you have anything beyond childish insults and homoerotic wet dreams to share with us, I'm done wasting time on you.

You hang out in "lesbian bars"?

You don't know any lesbians at all. Why make up silly thinks to prove imaginary points?

But, let's go with your premise, just for fun.

I CAN tell you that I used to live next to a bar that catered to straight folks. The "Elephant Bar". Between cleaning up the puke they left on my lawn every Saturday morning, to hearing the foul language and fights, it was such a joy, let me tell you. The hooker problem was an issue as well, and THIS in a middle-class neighborhhood, to boot.

Do YOU personally claim responsibility for all of their bad behavior, because you are straight? Should you denied the right to marry because of it?

If not, that would make you a bit of a hypocrite.
