It's going to be fun to watch.
At least SOME Republicans are coming around; the chairman of the Illinois GOP has come out in support of marriage equality there!

Nope. Just pointing out that your arguments are based on logical fallacies, and therefore invalid.

Do you ever tire of the fact that your inability to do so makes you look like a buffoon?

Feel free to indicate that elusive (that's difficult to find) legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry that would a) render your argument valid, and b) make you appear to be at least somewhat intelligent.

To you it's ok if I look like a buffoon. In fact, you're so screwed up, I'll consider it a compliment. Now stop being a troll and go play with the other children.

Wondering, seldom has an idiot gone to such insane lengths as you regularly do to illustrate their own idiocy and ignorance of the law.

the reality is that you can't present an intelligent argument in defense of your bigoted opinion, and you are too stupid to see the legal guarantees of equal protection of the law in the US Constitution. Only an intensely stupid person could hold such a position, absent any factual, legal, or rational support.

Congratulations, you are a moron. Feel free to offer that factual substantiation of your opinion that would prove otherwise.

Funny, you are the former, but not the latter.

Have you come up with a legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry that would render such a restriction constitutional?

Once again, you prove with your silence that you cannot factually support your position.

Congratulations, Wondering, you have tacitly admitted that there is utterly no legitimate reason to deny same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry.

It appears that you cannot make even the most basic case in favor of your position.

JD, is it true that you auditioned for the part of Larry in the Three Stooges movie and got turned down because you weren't intelligent enough to be a stooge? Don't fret, a gay guy still got the part, Sean Hayes. He was good in 'Will & Grace' as well.

The reality remains that you are too stupid to rationally defend your bigoted opinion.

Do you know why that is the case? Because there is no legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry. An intelligent person would either recognize this simple fact and concede, or in the alternative present an argument to the contrary. You appear to stupid to do either.

No.

Quid pro quo, can you indicate any legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry that would render such a restriction constitutional?

Have you noticed, Wondering, that I can easily answer your childish questions, but you always refrain from answering my serious ones?
