I see, when YOU point out off topic comments, you're being HELPFUL but when I (or those who dare disagree with your archaic OPINIONS then it's WHINING. Shit, I keep forgetting that you are in charge here.
That still doesn't explain all the lurking involved...Apparently you spend even more time blending into the background on these gay topics than we suspected. One could say you're in the closet. Studies say that 4 out of 5 homophobes are.
First of all and last of all, this arguing about gay marriage here solves NOTHING!!! This is topix, you are not arguing a case here before some corrupt Judge or Lawyer. So whine some more, but I think it's better to drink wine. I really enjoy the comedy here hearing people like you..LOL!!!

Actually Little Rickey, I was responding to a particular DUMBAZZ "christian" about a particularly dumbazz interpretation of the "old" testament. Sorry that the concept of responding to a post with a reliant comment or observation is so very perplexing to you.
PS:
Why can't you read the post BEFORE posting one of your smarmy waste of space comments?
I don't care who you were responding to, it was very disrespectful, shows you have nothing when you name call and insult. What is your profession?

Good morning Proffesor Poofington.
Please excuse me for neglecting you the past few days, I have been very busy with work.
Now lets cut to the chase shall we? Cool beans Poofy. As of yet medical science has not found the elusive " Gay Gene" . I am not sure they ever will, nor does it matter. You see Poofy old pal, every gay person that I have ever met and talked with tells me the same thing. They are born that way.
On to " catching the gay" . Poofy can you find one example of a heterosexual man or woman who has gone gay because the came into contact with a gay person? You have no proof that a young boy or girl being raised in a home by two homosexuals will become gay. Its very simple Poofy old man, if that child/ adolescent is not attracted to the same sex, no amount of exposure will change that.
On to "nomalization of homosexuality".
To you and the rest of the homophobic world, homosexuality is not normal nor natural. Well Poofy to a gay man, the thought of having sex with a woman is icky. Yes the gay man has no desire to have sexual intercourse with a woman. They seem to shy away from the Va jay jay, conversely lesbians seem to have no interest in your one eyed meat monster. This fact however strange to you does not make them any less " Normal". It simple means they are different than you.
The same thing can be said of vegetarians, while I am a carnivore, and I do love a juicy steak. I can not consider a person who ony eats vegetables abnormal. I just accept that they are different.
I've never read such a pile of crap in my life.

And the fact is, it's the exact kind of feeble-mindedness that got your fellows in so much trouble 30 years ago.

Bath house culture couldn't possibly harm anyone -- at least this is what you and people like Larry Brinkin told us. And like today straight morons believed you.

Did you ever pause to think that hadn't fellows like you demanded we change our health laws 500,000 young people wouldn't have died?

See that's the thing: when you pressure society to change their rules in order to accommodate your homosexual life-style, bad things happen.

Bad things are happening right now.

You people don't know what you're doing.

You people are not rational individuals.

Everything you advocate is done to further your promiscuous life-style.

Larry Brinkin is the homosexual at his highest development.

Allow me to repeat that: Larry Brinkin is the homosexual at his highest development.

I don't want gays next to my kids, a man is made to be with a women and as soon as sick and depraved ideas plague people's minds then this is when thinking homosexuality is normal or acceptable. A male and female can reproduce but a male and male cannot. A male dog goes to a female dog to reproduce, when you see a male dog humping a male dog (very rare) it's strange but it doesn't know better it's an animal with limited intelligence, this is not excusable for men or women

A very well known Latin actor had children, he loved his wife for years, he later left his wife for a gay life as a dancer, later he decided his life wasn't going anywhere, he thought of going back to a "normal" life after being raped in an alley, tell me this isn't a great example of being confused or just stupid. This is the main issue of Homsexuality, they are not born, during adolescence this habit can stick to kids or just come back later on in life depending on what they learn if they ever grow up

The stupid morons who support same sex marriage have no idea what homosexuality does to a person. They believe all the crap gay activists tell them.

Larry Brinkin conned straight morons for 30 years. He told them there was nothing wrong with homosexuality, that the homosexual was some kind of advanced human being who could be trusted.

They trusted him.

They allowed him to adopt a little boy. I'm still waiting for these straights to come forth and respond to the treasure trove of kiddie porn found on Brinkin's hard drive.

I won't hold my breath.

Sweetie, these are issues better shared with your mental health professional than on here.

Your choice to have "issues" (aka deep seeded psychological problems) with those who are homosexual and/or homosexual behavior is your problem, not ours. Your lack of coping skills isn't our fault, but you're going to need to work on them, because we will not be silent until we achieve full legal equality. I suggest you totter off and go sit quietly in the corner and have a couple more homoerotic fantasies.

How Many Other Larry Brinkins Out There ...?

The jury is in.

Larry Brinkin is all the evidence any rational person needs to know homosexuality is a destructive force.

He thought he was smart -- but at 66 years old he didn't fully understand how insecure the internet is. He used his credit card to fund his AOL account then used his AOL email address to send and solicit kiddie porn.

Obviously, someone he knows ratted on him. This bit of bad luck will cost Mr. Brinkin dearly. It should put him away at Pelican Bay State Prison for a considerable amount of time. As a pedophile he may not survive.

Larry Brinkin demolishes the self-serving gay myth that a homosexual can't be a pedophile once and for all.

Can we at least all agree to that?

Yeah really Rick.

Because it doesn't matter whether you believe gays when they tell you from first hand knowledge they were born gay or not in that if an American citizen wants to marry and adult of thier choice in this country they should be allowed to unless you can find viable harm.

Help?

You're such a pathetic game playing dipshit. You've been owned more times than a 1965 Denver minted Lincoln penny jerkoff...LOL!!!!

So, what about infertile/sterile opposite-sex couples or opposite-sex couples past the childbearing years......what right do they have to marry if they aren't being fruitful? I mean that is your point about not letting Gay or Lesbian couples marry, right?
Special rights are defined by distinctions.

You ignore numerous key distinctions.

At the same time you try to equate absolute sterility with the natural end of fertility with diverse couples WHO MOST LIKELY HAVE ALREADY PRODUCED CHILDREN!

So no, your ridiculous example is not my point. But you know that, don't you?

<quoted text>Sweetie, I've been over this with you before, your mythology of marriage is irrelevant. The question isn't whether or not same sex couples are entitled to your definition of marriage, but whether they have the right to marry as recognized and protected by the Constitution? Your fantastical concept of marriage as some sort of heterosexual birthright has absolutely NOTHING to do with one's constitutionally recognized right to marry. I'd ask why you still refuse to grasp these concepts, but I'm pretty sure I already know.
I know you've been over this with me before.

I just have a problem with < 4% telling 96% that their historic, cross cultural relationship is dumbed down to 'two people in a relationship'.

Nor do I hold your above opinion (and that is all it is) that involves absolutely no direct explanation of why the numerous distinct elements of marriage are no longer important, as highly as you do.

If you care to explain why those distinctions are no longer, important instead of arrogantly brushing them aside, then we can have a adult conversation.

Smile.

Since you clearly are not now nor have you ever have been in a relationship much less married what qualifies you to post your idiotic pronouncements here or anywhere?
What is marriage if it isn't a committed relationship between tow adults who share common goals and values?
And don't give that the procreation crap. Over 80% of pregnancies are unplanned/ mistakes/ accidents and almost 50% of children are born OUT OF WEDLOCK. So, as with much of the hot air you spew, this (archaic) "argument" blows.
Welcome to the 21st century!
Been married 36 years. I EVEN HAVE NUMEROUS COMMITTED SS RELATIONSHIPS!!!

Since 96% of marriages involve children, it is really a stretch for me to have a sterile relationship deem procreation unimportant. I think even YOUR mom and dad would agree. But maybe not...

You must have missed this;

If you
believe denying marriage to a relationship
will prevent love

If you
demand any committed relationship
has to be called marriage

If you
claim rights and benefits can only be acquired
by a imposition on marriage

If you
equate the diversity of two genders
with the redundancy of same genders

If you
desecrate the sacred tradition of all major religions
and violate the historic practice of every single culture in history

If you
believe a fundamental change to the building block of society
will have absolutely no affect

If you
think a law can change
the reality of crucial distinctions in relationships

If you
pretend duplicating sexuality
is the same as blending masculinity and femininity

If you
condemn some children to parents of only one gender
and deliberately deny some children one natural parent

If you
ignore the design of sexual union
to manipulate a harmful act

If you
violate evolution's law of reproduction
to equate a genetic dead end

If you
risk the healthiest human relationship
to include one of the unhealthiest

If you
parallel the sole birthplace of every other relationship
with one that can reproduce none

If you
dilute all these things
down to just 'a committed relationship of two people'

Then, and only then, can you equate same-sex unions with marriage.
