One can only guess at the number of laws you have violated and the number of times you have violated them. Pot/kettle.
I am not an over-reacting hot headed control freak like you are Poop1. If you want the NSA to read my posts I would be thrilled to have them do so as long as they are right next to yours so they can see who the real "Batshiet crazy" person is here.
It is OK to defend yourself and if more people shot and killed more home invading violators of
their rights the police might reconsider breaking down your front door and destroying your home while you lay naked on the front law. I asked the question,'when is it OK to kill a cop.'
The intelligent people in this thread see exactly what you are doing Poop1, you are trying to rally people to post against me by twisting and misrepresenting what I have openly and freely admitted to in various posts in Topix. You want everyone to attack me with one post after another because you are a Christian and that is just what Christians do when confronted with the truth.
I hope you grow up and give up this childish revenge that permeates your whole entire being.
OooOoOoohhh! The INTELLIGENT people, eh? Tick tock!...and when they don't endorse your behavior, what then? I know! "Born Gay" in 4...3....2...1...

If you WERE intelligent, you wouldn't be endorsing the NSA for any reason. Here's one simple rule you can count on. Nobody gathers information to find the truth. They already know what they consider the truth. They just want bogus numbers to support their opinions. Don't trust anyone to support your opinion by way of a side-by-side comparison.

If you even remotely believed in libertarianism, you'd know this. You'd also KNOW that it is ridiculously ABSURD to imagine that the NSA spends BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars on collecting data that they will only peak at after saying "Mother, may I?" They want it all and they want it NOW! Congress does not want to oversee them. They want to access that data in pursuit of their politics. The president wants that data to defend his or herself against personal enemies. That data is not a defensive tool. It's an OFFENSIVE WEAPON!

...but you are NO Libertarian. You WANT that weapon. YOU have your own enemies list and you want to wage a war against your enemies. IT'S THE KKKristians! We've all heard you, Alan. You just try to make it sound like "IT'S THE 14TH AMENDMENT!!!"

Just let us know when you're ready to get back to the real debate here, would you Mork?

Rose doesn't suffer fools? No, she invites them!

Her only defense against any argument is "IT'S THE 14TH AMENDMENT!!" Only a fool wastes time on any response other than actual judicial interpretations of that amendment.

In 8000 years of human history, not one single culture has ever accepted gay couples as married from start to finish. It has NEVER established itself and spread to other cultures. Meanwhile, marriage has been a part of every single culture!

In fact, in this brief, recent incursion of ss marriage being imposed on society, the result has been that marriage is DIMINISHING in those countries that legalized it!!!

LOL you actually are blaming Gays and Lesbians for the fall in heterosexual marriages around the world? Ummm do you also blame global warming, air and water pollution on them? How about the latest round of attacks between Israel and Palestine? Damn Greg, you are a simple minded person.

Could it be that more and more young people see that a piece of paper isn't needed to have a happy productive life? Marriage is a choice, one that should not be held back to those who wish to enter into it with some one they love, regardless of sexual orientation.

Where did I do that?

You think it is right that a couple births children and doesn't take responsibility together for them???

Theses same young people who engage in serial monogamy, and have more children out of wedlock than previous generations.

No man or woman is denied the right to marry, enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife because of their self professed sexual orientation.

How does a marriage license guarantee that a couple will take responsibility for having children?

Go back and read what you posted.

Clearly you are blaming Gays and Lesbians for the fall in numbers of marriage between heterosexual couples. That my friend is what YOU implied.

In the state of Illinois, a man can marry a man, a woman can marry a woman, a man can marry a woman. That's called equality.
In the state of North Carolina, a man can not marry a man, a woman can not marry a woman, BUT a man can marry a woman. That is called discrimination. Husband and Husband, Wife and Wife are legally recognized marriages in many of the States in America, as well as many countries across the globe. With in the next few years every state in America
Marriage is not a requirement in procreation, you don't have to be married to have children,

Just like the bible tells him to.
1 Peter 4:15
Pietro Armando could care less about what the Bible has to say about anything other than homosexuality. After he reads 1 Peter 4:15 he gives God the finger and tells Jesus to go screw himself.

Have you noticed all the spam the trolls are flooding this thread with? Do they actually think anyone reads it?

You need to do a little Bible research. All of the things I've mentioned are in the Bible, Greg.
Did you notice that 7-11 said, "Authorized Holy Bible"? Well who the hell authorizes a Bible?

I have the M.A.R.Y. version of the Bible and it says right on the front cover that it is the ONLY version where the Holy Spirit entered into the translators and guided them to translate it exactly the way that God wants his message to mankind to be. The KJV 1611 doesn't say anything even remotely close to that on its cover. The 1611 is just another poorly translated mishmash of nonsense that contradicts other versions.

And the MARY does not have anything anti-gay in it at all. Indeed it could be called a celebration of homosexuality, perhaps even the gay Bible.

Humans are tribal animals. Human children are uniquely dangerous and resource intensive to raise. A tribe with a certain percentage of members who don't end up reproducing has an advantage.
That certainly could be a great advantage. I occasionally mention my grandfather and my two grandmothers. Two grandmothers has twice the advantage of one. When I would invite my friends to attend family functions with me and they saw how helpful everyone was of one another I would often hear comments like, "I wish I had two grandma's".

My kids certainly saw my gay cousin as an advantage. When they couldn't get something out of me they would go ask him to talk to me on their behalf. If they needed a ride into town and I wasn't available they would ask him. He was always available and willing to help.
