You can word a pole so that you gots what you wants. Git this them libral judge is overturning votes of the people in some states like California and laws maid by state legislatures in some other states. That tells me moore than eny of your so called poles. You calls everbody what don't agree with homeysaxals marrying each other a bigot. I calls them normal and smart.

That is issue will be decided by the Supreme Court? The Feds will start issuing marriage licenses? The states all still maintain the authority to define marriage? Which dream are you referring to?

<quoted text>
Great observation if read carefully.
Natural law, or the law of nature (Latin: lex naturalis), is a system of law that is determined by nature, and so is universal.[1]
1 Jump up to: a b c d e Strauss, Leo (1968). "Natural Law". International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences. Macmillan.
Objections to Theory
There are two main objections to Natural Law Theory, both raised during the Enlightenment period (17th and 18thcenturies). The first, advanced by Scottish philosopher David Hume (1711-1776), is that Natural Law Theory conflates that which is the case with that which ought to be the case. One cannot, as Hume pointed out, logically derive a moral imperative or value judgment simply by observing facts of nature. Natural Law theorists often argue, for example, that because God’s laws (and laws of nature in this case) dictate the purpose of sexual intercourse is reproduction, it is unnatural and thus, immoral to have sex for any other purpose. The fallaciousness of this reasoning is especially obvious when we consider natural tendencies which, are seemingly irreconcilable with ethical behavior. For example, if one concedes that it is natural for human beings to care for themselves before strangers, then one must also accept that this ought to be the case (Rachels, 2007: 60-61).
The second argument against Natural Law Theory is the theory’s assumption that moral principles are written in the laws of nature (or by God). Modern science contradicts this assumption. The scientific perspective sees only cause and effect in the natural world; morals and values, it claims, are inventions of the human mind. From this worldview, the continued use of Natural Law Theory in the Catholic Church (where it is most prominent) is a holdover from Medieval thought (Rachels, 2007: 61).
Natural Law Theory Today
Due to these arguments against it, Natural Law Theory plays virtually no role in contemporary secular moral discourse (Rachels, 2007: 60). However, devout Christians number in the hundreds of millions in the world today and the Protestant and Catholic Churches are significant players in almost every country’s moral discourse. Thus, knowledge of Natural Law Theory is necessary to engage with and understand the traditional Christian position.

Big talk for a younger man behind a computer screen. Most things in this world are a question of time. It's the slightly cliche question about how to stop a killer asteroid. The key is to apply the force that you have as soon as you are able to apply it effectively. Waiting until disaster is immanent is certain death. At least an early effort provides the people with the reason for a second and more compelling effort.
You really ARE just a linear thinker. Alternatives just aren't part of your nature. Expending energy in an immediate effort to find your way to the next moment is all you have and all you ever will have.
The reason here is simple to me. You are the being of lesser self-awareness who overcompensates to maintain credibility in a world where he does not fit in. That is why your politics will fail. It's a people without vision and without organization.
The conservatives lack vision as well, but they have organization. Tick tock!
Comparing gay marriage to a killer asteroid is just about the stupidest analogy I've ever heard.

Good luck with your "second" effort. It will fail as miserably as the first.

And yes it is really ugly because it won't have 50 stars until all 50 states legally recognize same sex marriages.
Do you know the meaning of the word 'Hausfrau' at all? It doesn't make sense in this context.
At least you admit that your flag is ugly. No flag is as beauty as the German one.

Btw we humiliated Brazil. We have won 7:1.

Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit
Für das deutsche Vaterland!
Danach lasst uns alle streben
Brüderlich mit Herz und Hand!
Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit
Sind des Glückes Unterpfand –
Blüh im Glanze dieses Glückes,
Blühe, deutsches Vaterland!
