So get the government out of marriage then. No more licenses.
Let the parties involved make their own contracts. No need for the government at all.

"Poof1" is a troll obsessed with me, and Jade. Seems he can't get his mind off of our underwear. He follows us around, changing names and proxy servers, sometimes several times an hour.
Just watch!
^^^^^^Lame^^^^^^ Desperate^^^^^^^^^ butt hurt^^^^^^^^^
If you weren't so out of touch and a such a moron you'd know it was Rose_NoHo's post changed only to your name. So the joke's on you two. You just described Rose's post as desperate. Now don't you feel silly?

Now apologize to Rose for calling her post "lame, desperate and butt hurt". I hope she doesn't forgive you! I wouldn't.

YUK!YUK!YUK! What a dope!

Yes, all persons should be treated equally.
I am starting to like the word neutrally better than equally. I think all government employees should be required to wear blindfolds. I know it would be practical, but if the judges, cops and prosecutors didn't know if the plaintiff was black or white, gay or straight, male of female we might start to get some neutrality from our government here in America.

Lets see........
For thousands of years Marriage has always been between a Man and a Woman for the purpose of uniting in marriage and for the purpose of family and children. It is the foundation of our society. It is what it is.
Suddenly an unelected activist liberal Judge rewrites thousands of years of history and law and you want to argue that is not destroying Marriage?
Homosexuals are not normal people who should get married as if they were normal people. That confuses people into thinking that it is an accepted way of life and should be celebrated as such. It is not acceptable and it is not normal, it is an abomination and a perversion of the natural order.
This is a political game that gays are playing to gain acceptance nothing more nothing less. You will see tremendously bad social changes from the destruction of Marriage and it will not be pretty.
You dodged the question - how does gay marriage destroy straight marriage?

I prefer "equal". Mainly because is I grew up during the civil rights ear, and the word strikes a chord in me that "neutral" doesn't. When I hear "neutral" I think of pH 7.
And I have this impression as well.
Equal:
Black bank robber is treated the same by the law as a white bank robber.
Neutral:
Person who robbed the bank is treated the same by the law as a person who didn't.
If you have ever had any run in's with the law you would know that cops treat people who don't rob banks about the same as those who do rob banks.

When robots take over many government jobs and you go to the clerks office to get a marriage license the robot should not be programed to ask you what sex you are, or any other questions that don't matter. There also should be room for more than one name as spouse. Just a thought.

Question: How does gay marriage destroy straight marriage?

SevenTee: For thousands of years Marriage has always been between a Man and a Woman for the purpose of uniting in marriage and for the purpose of family and children. It is the foundation of our society. It is what it is.

ALAN: Non-resposive, irrelevant and doesn't answer the question.

Seven Pee: Suddenly an unelected activist liberal Judge rewrites thousands of years of history and law and you want to argue that is not destroying Marriage?

ALAN: Irrelevant. Again you have not answered the question.

SevenPee: Homosexuals are not normal people who should get married as if they were normal people. That confuses people into thinking that it is an accepted way of life and should be celebrated as such. It is not acceptable and it is not normal, it is an abomination and a perversion of the natural order.

ALAN: Irrelevant, non-responsive, question still not answered.

SevenPee: This is a political game that gays are playing to gain acceptance nothing more nothing less. You will see tremendously bad social changes from the destruction of Marriage and it will not be pretty.

ALAN: Irrelevant, non-responsive, question still not answered.

The only logical conclusion is that gay marriage does not harm or affect straight marriage in any way. You must believe that everyone else in here is as stupid as you are what from presenting that irrelevant and non-responsive dog and pony show.

What do you think of using the word neutral instead of equal? The government must treat each individual citizen with neutrality verses treat each of us equally?
None of us are equal. Some are smarter, some are richer, some better looking, some are stronger, etc etc etc.
No longer will they announce "Man and Wife", now it's only "Married People" I now pronounce you "married people". I gues that will take the thrill away for a normal heterosexual newly couple who looked forward to hear man and wife. THANK YOU odd people for your persistance!
