I want to marry two women. Who are you to tell me that I can't?. Gays can marry now which is immoral and twisted but i can't marry whom i please? I hope you gay marriage supporters are fighting for my rights and wants.
Bet not right?
Hypocrites.
By what logic must gay people fight for the rights of unrelated groups? Fight your own battles.

not trying anything, just clearly pointing out where your prejudices and bigotry come from. one day you yourself may understand why you are thinking what you are thinking...but i wouldn't bet on it.

PS - there is nothing noble about standing up for your principles when they are immoral, which your anti-gay bigotry is.

Actually I'm pointing out the fact that everyone can't fight all battles for everyone else. Pretty obvious, or so I thought.

Speaking of parrotting...

If you don't see tampering w/ our social constructs as destructive...I can't help you...

Traditional marriage is called the 'cornerstone of our society' for a reason...destroy that cornerstone and what happens....

Best way I can show you the future....

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." Declaration of Independence

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." Preamble, US Constitution
It is not in the best interest of domestic tranquility or the general welfare to promote inequality.

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." US Constitution, 14th Amendment, Section 1

You have offered no reason why same sex couples should not have equal protection of the law to marry. You have offered any number of arguments that make one wonder if you should repeat the 2nd grade.
