Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has signed on to a campaign pledge created by the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage, a group that seeks to obstruct marriage equality and, in states where gay and lesbian families are legally allowed to wed, to roll family parity back.

That's a good point. I happen to think there's a good reason marriage is between man and woman.
Thatís lovely, but your opinion does not rise to the level of a compelling state interest to deny fellow citizens equal protection of the laws.

I happen to like all the standards around marriage, anti-bigamist, anti-incest, anti-pedophile, anti-forced marriage and male/female gender ratio; I like marriage as is;
Brian, for each of the partices you cite where that are disallowed there is a legitimate state interest served by disallowing them. Bigamy seeks inherently greater protection of the law, incest results in a medically known higher rate of birth defects and mental illness, in pedophilia the minor cannot legally consent, and similarly forced marriage implies a lack of consent.

Do you possess the grey matter to indicate a legitimate state interest served by denying same sex couples equal protection of the law to marry? Because I donít think you do.

Arguing for fellow citizens to be held as second class citizens wwith less than equal protection of the law isnít moderate, it is infantile.
Brian_G wrote:
I don't want same sex marriage because I don't want to change ANY marriage standard, not just the male/female part.
Of course, you seem to lack the capacity to indicate even so much as a rational basis to deny constitutionally guaranteed equal protection of the laws.
Brian_G wrote:
That makes me a conservative; to keep the definition of marriage.
No, it makes you an idiot to argue against the rights of fellow countrymen.
Brian_G wrote:
That's why I like Romney and think Obama is making a mistake, on the wrong side of history with this issue.
Funny, a growing majority support marriage equality, while support dwindles. Heck, even Mittens once supported gay marriage, having been the governor of the first state to legally allow the practice.

Of course, you would like a candidate with no backbone who has been on both sides of just about every issue out there.

This is nothing more than BS. You cannot say you respect someoneís dignity while arguing against their constitutional rights.

No, youíre not. You havenít even been able to offer a rational basis for your position, which is risible.

Any marriage would, especially marriages with children. What I like about you is your consistency. You wake up stupid and stay that way all day long.

Anyone who attempts to control what elementary school children think about homosexuals and homosexualty in a way that is inconsistent with family values is not my fellow citizen. I'm sure they're yours though.

They all bow to the dollar. Obama flip-flopped on marriage, is beholding to the municipal unions and lied about "shovel ready jobs."

If that were true they would teach them about how gays spread HIV in this country and how their disorder makes people of the same sex sexually attractive to them. Gay advocates want no part of teaching them facts.

Marriage is a state issue, the supreme court has made that very clear. Good luck with that.

No, the correct translation would be that Wondering is afraid to answer simple and direct questions, and incapable of understanding larger posts that contain two or more questions.

No, you've asked that question many times and it has been answered many times. Stop being so boring and stupid. Now, answer my questions, you've been ducking them for weeks.

You mean homosexually doesn't involve being attracted to people of the same sex? Have you been talking to Justice Dumbass?

Oh, and the HIV thing, male/male sex is the leading cause of new cases year in and year out.
