You are advocating for them to be treated as second-class citizens with less than equal protection of the law. In addition to being an unconstitutional position, it is, regardless of what you would like to portray it as, a hateful position.
so when we advocated for voting age to be 18, we did so out of hate for 17 year-olds, right?

another gem by justice dumbass...

I DECLARE that anybody who supports SSM is a hateful bigot against families...

did you take note of ANY of the recent arguments in the suprmee court?

they indicated everything you have ever said was WRONG...

Nah, just waiting for you to cease being a jacka$$ and either offer a substantiated argument or realize just how stupid you really are.

Can you offer any legitimate reason why same sex couples should be denied the equal protection of the law to legally marry?

Can you offer any way in which allowing such a union has any impact whatsoever upon traditional marriage whether existing or yet to be performed?

Can you indicate how you are impacted in any way by allowing same sex couples to marry?

So far you haven't, and if you cannot, then your argument is completely without rational foundation. Keep in mind, that our constitution implicitly states that congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, so any religious objections you might have are irrelevant.

No, restrictions of voting age have to do with reaching the age of majority, and ironically coincide with the average age one finishes public schooling. You see, it is in the best interest of the state to only allow individuals who have a basic education and can read the right to vote.

You and your cohorts have never offered a reason why same sex couples should be denied equal protection of the law to marry.

Thanks for bringing up yet another inept argument that proves just how feeble minded you are.

And I declare that you are a moron. What's your point? Statements of personal opinion are somewhat irrelevant, as are your inept decrees.

"God who gave us life gave us liberty.
And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."
1781, Query XVIII of his Notes on that State of Virginia.

"I now make it my earnest prayer the God would have you and the State over which you preside, in His holy protection, that he would incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for their brethren who have served in the field; and, finally, that he would be most graciously pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation."

Bunch of LAZY peeps!
Too bad you went to such a shitty school, if THAT mess is what you learned.

Did you learn who said this:? Today Christians ... stand at the head of [this country]... I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit ... We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press - in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past ...(few) years.

Why, it's your hero Adolf Hitler.
