OH dear, you neglected to mention that the appeals court has UPHELD is RULING becasue it was UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

You did a NICE cut and paste job but you need to take a refresher course in basic government you are not impressing anyone with your halftruths, talking points and rhetoric.

I'd point out that you are fooling no one but won't since you are doing such a great job of fooling yourself.

Not sure if the gay community would accept her, she is like in limbo ... I'm sure some idiot like joanah, condom-man-dan and Slym-Clylde and any other homo here will tell her she was born to like women thefore is gay lol ...
Sexual orientation is like handedness. What makes one person right handed, and another left handed? We really don't know, but we know it's not a conscious choice.(BTW, fundies used to kill lefties, and even when I was growing up, left handed kids were beaten for using their left hand.) Another way orientation is like handedness...while most of us have a dominant hand, we also have at least some ability to use the other hand, if you catch my drift...

Now that's just stupid. I CHOOSE to like women. What do you CHOOSE to like? Nobody's forcing you to be gay, it's not in your genes, it's your CHOICE.
FYI - We're not "acting like pansies", that's your job. We voted. We won. Deal with it.
Why get married anyway? It'll just lead to divorce.....
Then CHOOSE to like men for 24 hours. OK? That would settle this issue once and for all. Let us know how it works out for you!

Yep. "seeing" heterosexual behavior modeled is the only way to assure that kids will "turn out" straight. That's why there has NEVER been a case of a LGBT child being born to a heterosexual couple or of a LGBT copula successfully raising a straight child.

Thanks for the language lesson but I don't use words unless I know there meaning. And in this case I was going for over bearing, over aggressive, knuckle dragger.
Heads up: Intelligent people don't form their opinions based on fear or ignorance they form them based on facts. And MORE IMPORTANT, when the facts change their OPINIONS adjust changes with the NEW facts presented. So if you really "don't like" that you "hate" homosexuals you could actually adjust your OPINION or at least your rhetoric.
OK, if "Intelligent people don't form their opinions based on fear or ignorance they form them based on facts" then why call me a troglodyte? Nothing in the actual definition means "bearing, over aggressive, knuckle dragger"......
Smart lady.

How is it unconstitutional?!? Are there "rights" to be gay? Are there "rights" to be straight? Why do gays want to undermine a basic bilogical function & a moral standing that America has upheld for over 200 years?? Why to fags want better-than-equal rights?
This isn't about civil rights at all. This is about gays wanting to be "heard" & come out of the closet as loudly as they can. Gays can vote right? Gays can buy a home right? Gays can open a night club right?
It's their fault & THEIR CHOICE to be gay. They have to live with it (at least for now).

Well dear, let's say you are right. All 500 million of us gays around the planet all chose to be gay. So what? What ignorant point would you like to try and establish based on this irrelevant rant of yours? Let's just get whatever it is your waiting to spring forth off your chest and out into the open. Hurry the f*ck up and make whatever you think your stupid point is so that we can demonstrate what a stupid POS you are and all move on.

Very much. Just as much as my kids are anti-gay bigots, you're an anti-straight bigot. Where'd you learn that trait? Or were you "born that way"?
Care to point out a post where an anti-straight remark was supposedly made?

Yeah, we thought not.

Liars for Jesus unite, the ignorant trailer redneck is leading the way!!

Quoting NOM?!!!! LOL!!!!! Wow, that says it all.

Well, since you seem to want to be the mouthpiece for Brian Brown, why don't you demonstrate the bias you speak of.

Here are the 80 findings for Judge Walker. Kindly show us which were formed based on the supposed bias you mention. The lawyers defending your unconstitutional amendment weren't able to, nor was a Federal Judge appointed to review it. Please, by all means, why dont YOU be the one to save the day for your cause!!!!!

Please demonstrate the bias, rather than just blathering about it like some retard like Brian Brown!!! Come on now Cletus!!!!

You are aware that there are sources of INFORMATION in the internet OTHER THEN Wikipedia? Here are a few you missed:

Troglodyte:
A person who lives away from the coasts and metropolises, once referred to as a 'hinterlander' but no longer deserving of that otherwise-dignified term. He regards himself as a "real American" and his culture as that of such. He is adamant about his Second Amendment rights but isn't very interested in those other, less-relevant amendments that only the judges and politicians- who he scorns as being "leeches"- care about. He hates the idea of more laws, government or regulation of anything that reduce what he regards as "freedom", itself a word that he flings about without care. He hates non-real Americans, i.e. American citizens who are unlike himself, and those who he hates the most passionately are Muslims, all of whom he associates with the 9/11 attacks. In his telling you what's wrong with the U.S. and the way things ought to be, he could endlessly expand this definition without even knowing he is doing so.

troglodyte: indoor-smoking, hard-drinking, pickup truck driving, Muslim-hating, liberal-hating, foreigner-hating, homophobic, gun-loving, self-assumed Christian who hasn't set foot in church in "only God knows when".

troglodyte:
A person considered to be reclusive, reactionary, out of date, or brutish.

trogladyte:
A red neck and/or crack snorting alcoholic who spends most of their time in WalMart buying discount paper towels and eating at the ketchup packets at the McDonalds in the store. They usually drive an astro van packed with six of their illegitamate love children, none of which wear pants or shoes.

troglodyte:
A member of a primitive race or tribe of cave people, who can be found congregating in large numbers at Noir Bar Weybridge every Friday or Saturday night.

You are here spewing gas all day long and you don't even understand the issue? Seriously?

According Judge Walker AND the 9th Circuit Court (you know, the PEOPLE in the black robes who get to DECIDE if something is or isn't UNCONSTITUTIONAL)“Proposition 8 served no purpose, and had no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians...”

See! It's more complicated that anomalously spewing your hatred for phags all over then interwebs.

That's how it goes with pedophiles. They hang around the same place too long and they get comfortable and overly confident.

Topix takes a dim view of child pornography. If I were "Bruno" I'd be replacing my hard drive ASAP.
