There is nothing you could ever do or say that affects me because you are irrelevant.
So, you are just a bigot?

Still waiting for that explanation about how your continual efforts to advocate for fellow citizens with less than equal protection of the law is constitutionally sound.

Feel free to grow up, ad talk with the adults.

Right, we're so "irrelevant" and it doesn't affct you at all......

And yet you're constantly on here trying to convince us we should settle for 2nd class unequal civil unions.

Obviously you DO care that we are winning our equal marriage rights, or you wouldn't be here whining about it every day.

Now tell us all agains how irrelevant we are and how much you don't care.......

<quoted text> No, Sheeple. You're just making up bullsh!t to try and feel adequate. How's that working out for you? I think you're upset because I don't take you or your tantrums seriously.
Yes, I pity you. Yes, I have complete contempt for you because of your dishonesty and hypocrisy. You deserve no less. Your community, however, deserves better.
My guess is that you are a very sad person, and deservedly so.
It's working out great for me and my husband.

-We can now get married in 9 states & DC with more states to come shortly.

-We will have equal federal benefits after the SCOTUS overturns DOMA in June.

-You & your fellow anti-gays are seething with anger over the gays getting married.

Yep, things are going just great, thanks for asking.

I don't care who you screw. It's none of my business.
Can't you get anything right? Is it any wonder I have only contempt for you?
And yet you and your fellow anti-gays are still trying to reinstate a ban on gays in the military.

Oh well, that's just another battle you're going to lose.

You lie (badly) yet again. Quote where I am trying to *convince* you of anything. You can't. I support civil unions and domestic partnerships. I do not ask you to agree with me. The whining, then, is yours, not mine.

You lie. Again. As always.

And yes, you are irrelevant. Annoying and contemptible, but irrelevant. Liars generally are. I oppose liars like yourself. And since I oppose your lying, it's difficult to care about you.

So I don't since I know better.

You lie again. And since I know better, and you are reduced to making up silly buillsh!t, it is logical that I not much care about the phony and false claims you make up. I never saw the need for such a ban in the first place. Then again, I actually served in the military and know from experience. You, as always, are reduced to making up bullsh!t stories you know, or should know, to be untrue.

And you wonder why I ridicule you and consider you stupid for lying so badly and foolishly? What I don't understand is why you delude yourself into thinking you make any kind of influence. Maybe you just crave the attention, albeit negative attention you get for your lying.

Poor, pathetic Sheeple.

Lying badly works for you? Is such lying what you base your relationship on?

And are you so stupid as to fantasize that I am angry, or even give a rat's ass about somebody like you? Get serious! You are nothing but an bitter old queen that I feel sorry for... or at least would if you weren't such a pathetic liar.

I have to say that it's an ugly thing when posters get so caught up in personal attacks.

I have regularly found Sheeple's posts to be interesting and informative, although we don't agree on every single thing.

And BS used to at least try to make valid points, and stayed away from most of the petty attacks.

Any chance of getting back to that?

I know you folks can post however you like, but I still prefer a good discussion over anger. Can't help it.

Okay, so you civil unions & domestic partnerships and aren't asking us to agree with you.

Then you've made your point and there is nothing else for you to do here, so you can leave now.

Poor, pathetic Sheeple.
So your fellow anti-gays AREN'T trying to reinstate a ban on gays in the military? Check the FRC & CMR websites; that's one of their main goals.

Btw, since I've started posting we've gained 9 states with marriage equality, while you & your fellow anti-gays are down to 41 from 50. Hmmmm, guess I DO have influence.......

Fair point. Sheeple has always gone off the deep end with me. I'm guessing this is because I dare disagree with him. Lately he has just gotten ridiculous and ugly.

I admit that I like calling obvious liars like Sheeple on their obvious lies. I find lying offensive. You tend to be the voice of reason. What do you suggest?

P.S. How are you and the better half doing? I hope all is well with you.

And yet you can't stop responding to me which proves everything I've said is right.

If you don't "give a rat's ass", you wouldn't be responding to every post I make.

It's like I have a groupie!

Once again, I'm still waiting for that explanation about how your continual efforts to advocate for fellow citizens with less than equal protection of the law is constitutionally sound.

One wonders if you are capable of articulating any legitimate state interest served by such restrictions that would render them constitutional. Given that you seem to think a separate classification can be equal under the law, I'm guessing that you cannot.

Your marriage is also recognized in RI. While you can't yet get married there, out of state same sex marriages are recognized by the state.

And if you got married before prop 8 passed, it is also recognized in Ca.

<quoted text>Of course it is completely ludicrous to claim that marriage and something homsexual are the same thing in composition, characteristics, frequency even among homosexuals, and in effects on society.
The government has no rational interest in any legal homosexual relationship. No child is ever born as a direct result, no economically unequal genders are involved, and such relationships don't even form a basis of homosexual society much less of society in general.
Homosexuals have overwhelmingly rejected homosexual 'marriage' is every country that allows it.
1. the quantity of marriages that would result in the legalization of same sex marriages is completely irrelavent. it's sort of like when you look at the population that actually votes is such a small percentile of the whole, you could say that voting in america has been rejected by the american population, so why not just remove elections and voting alltogether? sounds ridiculous - just like you thinking that the numbers of homosexuals couples that have married in other nations matter whether or not something is legal.
2. show us the federal, state or local law or statute requiring anyone to procreate in order to obtain a marriage license. when you can do that, then your point is maybe a valid one.
3. increasingly, heterosexual population in america is rejecting legal marriage. using your premise, then heterosexuals shouldn't be allowed to marry. yes, that's ridiculous. almost as ridiculous as the point in number 1.

so again, we see your points, are, well, pointless, dear child of pekin.

Do you ever allow that your opponents might be misinformed, or just have not had access to the same data that you have? Links to supporting materials can help with that. They also keep you from coming across as just another ... well ... jAss.

Yes, when warranted. Sheeple does not warant such accommodation or consideration. He is, as noted, a liar.

Links that I support civil unions and domestic partnerships? Are you as stupid and dishonest as Sheeple? History suggests that you are. Links that I served in the military with gays? I ask again. Are you as stupid and dishonest as Sheeple? My opinion is that you are.

And your opinion of me is as irrelevant, worthless, and dishonest as you are.

Sorry Quest. I am in contempt of Sheeple and Snyper's dishonesty and hypocrisy and always will be.

Proves no such thing. Once again, you are shown to be a liar.

I do again admit that I enjoy exposing you as being a liar. THAT is why I post, you pathetic fool.

This is funny. Coming from someone who cannot articulate a single reason why fellow citizens should be held as second class citizens with less than equal protection of the law, counter the to the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.

Feel free to articulate an argument that proves this is not true. Currently, it simply appears as though you lack the ability to do so.
