You anti-gays are the ones who keep attempting to divert the topic from marriage equality to red herrings like HIV or whether sexual orientation is a choice.
Most likely because your fellow anti-gays keep losing in state after state and court after court when they are forced to stick to the issue of marriage equality.
No, I've told everyone on this forum that I'm single and I resent all forms of tax breaks for breeding. It's the worst kind of phoney liberalism that makes victims of the marginalized who for whatever reason, choose not to marry.

The mainstream breeding livestock are just being sold the idea that they can keep their unearned money as long as someone else gets stuck. They can't make this work and they really don't CARE! The formula has long been to loot the treasury and leave a mess for the next generation.

This is just an American train wreck in progress and long overdue.

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Ss couples are a failure of mating behavior making ss marriage an oxymoron.
Anal sex is not harmful.....Anal sex is not unhealthy.......Anal sex is not demeaning...

Now since you are wrong on every point time to move along.

And as you old out of date fools die off SSM will be legal and no one cares how much you slam your hands on your bible.

I'd have to say no, since the Constitution doesn't define marriage, and as far as I know, only regulates it through taxation, which they can pretty much pick and choose whichever reasons they want to tax people or give tax breaks; I see no rules limiting this. I would like to see a good argument made for gay marriage though, based on the constitution. Although, I am against it.
Regardless, I believe we'd all be better off if the government just stayed out of marriage all-together; leave it to private institutions. It's a family matter anyways.
Although the Constitution doesn't define marriage as a right,the Supreme court has on numerous occasions! And as far as a Constitutional definition all you need to look at is the 14th amendment,"Equal treatment/protection under the law" Try reading the Prop 8 decision or the Iowa Supreme court decision legalizing same sex marriage as they are loaded with Constitutional arguments plainly showing why gays should have the right to marry!

Why Prop 8 was and is Unconstitutional!

And the Iowa Supreme court decision on why they overturned the ban on same sex marriage,Read the "Equal Protection clause!

You're NOT interested in discussing marriage because if you were you'd UNDERSTAND that "GAY" or
"SAME-SEX" marriage simply DOESN'T exist!!!!
It doesn't?!!! So all marriages are conjugal? Husband and Wife? I know in thirty states, same sex marriage doesn't legally exist, or recognized by those states, but......
And just because people like you and Pete
You rang?
don't want to believe what happen in the past.....it doesn't mean it DIDN'T happen!!!
Oh I believe there are scattered historical examples of recognized same sex union! but they appear to be lacking in American history, English common law from which our concept of marriage originated, and a Western Civilization. Clearly SSM where it did exist never sustained itself. Why is that?
See, for everything you post....there is another site that will disagree with your site.......some sites are more credible than others!!!
So let's stick to the "more credible than others" sites.

It DOES provide proof of your own bigotry!

Real marriage has always been and will always be a committed relationship between one man and one woman. Demanding it ain't so doesn't make it so.

It is the only relationship that reproduces naturally, a father and mother raising their children.

It is the only relationship that is the birthing place of every single other type of relationship.

It is the only relationship that reunites two completely unique parts. A complimentary union, instead of a duplicated half.

It is the only relationship that sexually fit together by design. There is no abusive violation of design.

It is the only relationship that restores a male and female to the very original roots of our creation, pre-gender.

It is the only union that blends two different genders bringing perfect balance. A same gender union lacks diversity and is off balance.

All this says nothing about the cultural, historic and religious distinctions that marriage wholly embraces.

It clearly has, needs and deserves a special and unique definition. It is absurd and sacrilegious to equate ss couples.

Seriously NOT different......with the exception of the gender make-up.......otherwise our marriages are pretty much the same......we both deal with the daily issues of being married, they are NOT going to accidentally procreate and neither are my wife and myself.

You want to make a much bigger issue out of the gender make-up than is really there!!!

By the way, my aunt and uncle were a part of our wedding and unlike you....they see us married just like themselves!!!

You have been told already that how you want to define this word is NOT necessarily how the word is defined overall......and again, all you have is a repeated comment and NOTHING more......and what sites to you feel are credible? My guess is ones that agree with your position, right?
