<quoted text>Oh sorry, old foolish one, I have to educate you, this is not a "Secular Nation". I bet you think America was discovered by Columbus in 1492 and that the indigenous people were Indians, too.
Be careful foolish one,when you use the KKK reference to foster your hate, I might be Black and in fact I am.
If you are referring to the reading of the Bible Supreme Court ruling, it was the Abbington School District vs. Schmepff ruling. It in fact said that America is not a secular nation and that the court can not take a position in favor of secularism or religion and give either an advantage. This was the first time secularism even got a peep.
When you come back, read my moniker and consider carefully.
Now what has the court said?
143 U.S. 457, 12 S.Ct. 511, 36 L.Ed. 226 STATUTES 212
It being historically true that the American people are a religious people,
as shown by the religious objects expressed by the original grants and charters of the colonies,
and the recognition of religion in the most solemn acts of their history,
as well as in the constitutions of the states and the nation,
The courts - in construing statutes - should not impute to any legislature a purpose of action against religion.
[NOTE: We are repeating this line for emphasis, this advice from the US Supreme Court to all lesser courts:]
The courts, in construing statutes, should not impute to any legislature a purpose of action against religion.
BEYOND ALL THESE MATTERS:
But, beyond all these matters, no purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national, because this-is-a-religious-people.
From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation.
This is historically true.
U.S. SUPREME COURT'S BODY OF EVIDENCE PROVING A CHRISTIAN NATION:
"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion...."

Treaty of Tripoli 1797, ratified and signed into law by President John Adams.

Choke on it.

By the way stupid, repetition doesn't make you right. Repetition is the tool of those that need to indoctrinate because their message is flawed and they wish to redirect from that point. That's why religion is based on repetition.

Not imputing any legislation against religion is a FAR CRY from endorsing a specific religion. Any childe would recognize that. You stupid fundies are so damn desperate. It's pathetic.

Why should I ask them if they are straight, I can document that 97-99% will be straight. I can also document that 99.999% will have two arms and two legs. What I must discover is the 1-3% who will later claim they were born gay and know it as a fact, or the guy who lost his arms or legs in a car accident, but claim he was born with no leg or arm. Understand.
Next, what we must do is to examine the children who were abused as children, the examine all the gays who were abused before puberty or after, then examine the impact and correlation between the two.
Wow. I thought the stupidest of the stupid had already been posting in here, but I was wrong. You take the cake. Are you related to Brian_G, the village idiot of Topix?

You couldn't document the damned phone book.

<quoted text>Such anger and you claim that this is not your concern? Hmmm?
Albeit, sex with an 11 year old girl is socially and morally reprehensible and unacceptable, have we now shifted the conversation to social constructs, morality and disgust.
That said, certainly 99% of all humans find it disgusting to stick a penis in a male butt.
You mentioned gays and 11 year old children, which is a preference, but then you defend gays and same sex preference. No, gays prefer the same sex, period. If you tell a gay male that a boy is 17, then you immediately tell him that he is really 21, his attraction does not shift with the new knowledge. What happens is that he makes a legal, social and moral decisions as to follow the law or break it.
If it is not your affair, then don't vote for or against SSM, or just say that you are a liar. If you feel baited, it is due to your insecurity and uninformed state. As for me, if you challenge me with new information, I will research it and if it is valid I will adjust as the information dictates.
Anger never proves a point, it only exposes your lack of a point.
I love morons that make up statistics!!! Tell me, when you reached your 99% figure, was it based on your "documenting"?!!

What a ridiculous fucktard you are!!!! Guess your wife must be a 12 afterall!!! IQ that is. Who else could take you seriously!!!! LOL!!!!

Also, my friend, the Bible can be read in schools, it can be taught in public schools as a historical and literary document. The teaching of or not teaching of Christianity in public schools, in no way changes the Supreme Court ruling that we were founded as a Christian nation.
'In God we Trust', now go pay your bills with secular money.
In god we trust was added to our currency in the late 1800s, almost 100 years after our founding moron. It does not in any way demonstrate that our country was founded on Christianity. All it confirms is that Christians in the late 1800's were able to force their religion into the public sector. Damn you are stupid.

The simple truth is this, Same sex marriage is equal to that of opposite sex marriage. Sterility has nothing to do with it. You see reproduction has nothing to do with marriage.

<quoted text>Wrong.
What Brown and AG Harris do are no more valid than when Mayor Gavin Newsome thought he could issue marriage licenses.
Washington (CNN)-- The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal over same-sex marriage on jurisdictional grounds, ruling Wednesday private parties do not have "standing" to defend California's voter-approved ballot measure barring gay and lesbian couples from state-sanctioned wedlock.
The 5-4 decision avoids, for now, a sweeping conclusion on whether same-sex marriage is a constitutional "equal protection" right that would apply to all states.
At issue was whether the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law prevents states from defining marriage to exclude same-sex couples, and whether a state can revoke same-sex marriage through referendum, as California did, once it already has been recognized.
But a majority of the Supreme Court opted not to rule on those issues. Instead, it ruled on "standing" -- whether those who brought the suit to the court were entitled to do so.
But there is legal uncertainty whether the high court's ruling could be enforced statewide, or limited to only a few jurisdictions.
Some Prop 8 supporters argued the high court ruling means the voter referendum remains in place and enforceable.
"Proposition 8 being the law of the state of California makes it clear that marriage is only one man and one woman. The four plaintiffs that brought this lawsuit may have a right to get marriage licenses issued to them. But this was not a class-action lawsuit. It does not apply statewide, " said Austin Nimocks, senior counsel at the Alliance Defending Freedom. "Because there's no appellate decision holding it unconstitutional under the California Constitution, which is what controls this interpretation, Proposition 8 remains the law of that state.
This is the truth, That YOU did not copy and paste.

By dismissing the case, the court leaves in place the lower court decision in California that allows same-sex marriage to be reinstated. The federal appeals court stay on the decision will be lifted.

Honey, you are confused.

I simply pointed out irrefutable distinctions between SS couples and marriage.

You correctly assert aimed that those differences disqualified SS couples.

SS marriage is an oxymoron.

Let me do the math for you. SSM is not legal in New Mexico, only in a few counties.
Let me do the math for you dumbass. 1) There's no such thing as a SSM, there is only marriage. 2) It is legal in all 50 states both for straights and for gays. Just because a state does not recognize it yet doesn't make it illegal you moron. Non bigoted churches and public officials are free to perform the ceremony in all 50 states.

But don't let facts get in the way of you pretending you know anything about anything. Reading your moronic posts is a hoot. I love people that have no problem demonstrating in such a public manner how idiotic they are. You're hilarious simple one.

In the end,
Marriage is a miraculous reunion of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It units humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.
That isn't "in the end", it's merely "in your fantasy land".

A perfect example of why fantasy requires no reasoned response.

"Mars and Venus", "delicacy", "unbiased blend", "hosting"!! Oh my!!! One can just picture you clutching your string of pearls as you extoll this nonsense to the girls in your afternoon tea parties!!
