Everyday people make choices to drink, do drugs & participate in un-natural sex.

Ethnicity & Gender are not choices.

Homosexuality is.

Um, two people aren't similar to marriage, straight or gay. People are sentient beings, marriage is an institution.
Do they teach school in your trailer park?
Institutions have identifying characteristics. It starts with two people.

People are also sentient. You bring up the first clear distinction between gay couples and marriage after two people; the perception of the opposite sex is much more involved and challenging from the simple redumdancy of same sex consciousness. The results produce a far more sophisticated quality in the relationship.

You have been schooled.

DOMA will be abolished under Obama. Proposition 8 is gone. A majority of Americans support gay marriage. And Obama supports full marriage equality and will abolish all of these anti-gay laws in the states. Soon everyone will have EQUAL RIGHTS in this country.

Obama is coming out and supporting gay marriage today.:) Woah!
Not surprising, he has been speaking out of both sides of his mouth on almost every issue around.

He also represents about the same percentage that was just expressed; "A majority of North Carolina voters on Tuesday approved a controversial amendment that will write a ban on same-sex marriage as well as civil unions for both gay and straight couples into the state Constitution, according to the Associated Press. With most precincts reporting, the amendment was passing by a 61 percent to 39 percent margin."

The truth is, the closer gays get to marriage, the more the distortions will be exposed. A rude awakening...

Any reasonable gay will see the light and pack up their tent and move over to the "right" side, because they no that their side is "left" out.

This is the stupidest cut and paste on Topix. People that re-post it prove one thing, and one thing only. That they are idiots.
No cut and paste, I wrote it.

All you have to do is disprove it point by point.

Love to see you try.

31 states have voted NO to gay marriage by large margins, and you post this crap??? LMFAO
That's what liberals do best! They lie. LOL

You obviously suffer from maintaining fixed false beliefs even when confronted with facts, usually as a result of mental illness. Liberalism!!! LMFAO

And you OBVIOUSLY don't pay attention to the changing attitude of American Citizens.

It is true that in most of those states who voted on bans to keep marriage defined as only between a man and a woman, the outcome was high in your favor, but not in all cases and as the older generation dies off and younger voters reach voting age......the tide will turn.

The true test of this will be in November when we will see votes in Maine, Maryland and Washington.

If marriage is a civil right, what other civil rights do you need a license for?

We are also guided by the very basic belief that all human beings are created b’tselem Elohim (in the Divine image), as it says in Genesis 1:27,“And God created humans in God’s own image, in the image of God, God created them; male and female God created them.” Rabbi David Saperstein said in Congressional testimony in support of ENDA that “regardless of context, discrimination against any person arising from apathy, insensitivity, ignorance, fear, or hatred is inconsistent with this fundamental belief. We oppose discrimination against all individuals, including gays, lesbians, and bisexuals, for the stamp of the Divine is present in each and every one of us.”
Each of us, created in God’s image, has a unique talent, with which we can contribute to the high moral purpose of tikkun olam, the repair of our world. Excluding anyone from our community lessens our chance of achieving this goal of a more perfect world.
And the Bible also said that there will be many false profits, and to flee from these!

First off.......WE AREN'T PERVERTS!!!

Secondly........the only folks brainwashing kids are Religious Fundies!!!

Thirdly........THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HOW I LOVE OR WHO I LOVE......love is not contingent on someone's sexual orientation.

Fourthly........God help any of your children if they are Gay or Lesbian......YOU'D NEVER UNDERSTAND!!!

How am I spreading ANYTHING to your children? Personally, I'm not in the schools preaching that who I am is is right, it's just who I am.......and believe it or not, it's not the children that have an issue with it, it's the parents who wish to pass their bigotry and hate on!!!

Now, KINDLY FRUCK OFF!!!

The license is what grants you the rights, benefits and privileges of marriage that both the State and Federal government provide to you......without it, you may still be married in your eyes and those of your family, but neither the State or Federal Government will recognized it!!!

In others words......the license only grants you what the state provides, if ya don't want the rights, benefits and privileges of marriage.....then go have a commitment ceremony and don't worry about the rest!!!
