funny it is also the logic of the SCOTUS...
"The woman whom appellee desired to marry had a fundamental right to seek an abortion of their expected child, or to bring the child into life to suffer the myriad social, if not economic, disabilities that the status of illegitimacy brings. Surely, a decision to marry and raise the child in a traditional family setting must receive equivalent protection. And, if appellee's right to procreate means anything at all, it must imply some right to [marry]."
I think you have some kind of a tic where you laugh when you are wrong...
Um..... where does that say gays can't marry?

You are a moron with no real argument, so you start going on about children.
People are going to start teaching rational views of human sexuality in schools, regardless of the legal status of gay marriage.

Sure. I like the way you fundies try to make your bigotry seem righteous.
No Rose...this is why I personally do not support gay marriage. I don't need any other reasoning nor do I need your agreement.

I didn't watch it and I could've told you the same thing (and I'm telling you the same thing now).

Didn't The Obamanaic PROMISE to serve only one term if he didn't cut the deficit in half and fix the economy ?

Was he lying then, or is he lying now ?

Actually, it's the opinion of the vast majority of the medical community, and I don't believe most of them are hysterical.

You are always entitled to your opinions, however silly and illogical they might be. You just don't have the right to use them to deny basic civil and human rights to other Americans.

But, can you tell us what harm is done to any child by understand that folks who marry the same gender as okay?

Are you one of those that thinks a kid can "turn gay" if they learn that some girls like girls and some boys like boys?

There is NO rational basis for that idea, you know. Learning to treat others as you would like to be treated, regardless of harmless differences, has never turned a single person gay.

What do you mean, "citizenship rights"? Can you cite an Amendment or clause in the Constitution?
.
It called the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment.

Loved the rash of post about me, putting me down and mocking me, while at the same time claiming you never insult people or try to harm gays and lesbians. And at the same time insisting that supporting your ban on SSM isn't a ban, and that you aren't trying to cause anyone harm.

Good lord, I wonder if other people's eyes begin to cross like mine do whenever you display your "logic".

How would that work exactly? Different views on sexuality can be taught regardless of the legal status of gay marriage.

They are equal now, that's all that matters. The Constitution is a living document which gets interpreted differently over time. The year is 2012 to the best of my knowledge. Citizenship rights are guaranteed by the 14th amendment.

Not at all, there is no evidence you can council away someone's orientation. What could someone say to you that could change yours?

It'll happen with a ban too. But I like how you want to deprive my sisters children a quality education just so you can feel better for not giving your own children all the facts about sex and human sexuality.

It's just so "republican" of you.
