Now if you suggest taking away anything the gay community has that gives more rights then everyone else. the out cry would be terrible. this shows what ive said all along its about tearing down the cerimony's we hold dear because it doesnt fit there way of life.
No,so sorry bigit boy! The judge was gay but he followed the Constitution and ruled the only way he could with the evidence presented before him! His decision was then backed up by the next higher court! Him being gay has nothing to do with bias,do they disqualify a black judge from presiding over a civil rights case? NO! Do they disallow a women from presiding over a womens issue before her? NO,they do not! All you have our whiny sour grapes! It's funny,when a court rules in you favor you are all giddy and happy,they were just doing their job! But when a ruling rightfully goes against you its OH an activist court! So sorry it doesn't work that way! Marriage is a secular function first and foremost and religion does NOT own marriage! Equal treatment under the law as per our Constitution is what counts! Oh and by the way,not gay,I just can't stand unamerican haters like yourself!

Do you ever READ the crap that spews out of your (blissful) ignorance?

"They" want to get married to destroy marriage becasue it doesn't fit "their" way of life? News flash: What you "have said all along" is laughably RIDICULOUS.

And if (heterosexual) marriages are so "dear" and "sacred" then how come almost HALF of them FAIL?

It would be counter productive for "Ken" and his ilk to admit any of this. Especially acknowledging that the ruling has already been UPHELD by a higher (and probably HETEROSEXUAL) court.

In fact I doubt that "Ken" is even aware of this ruling, after all, the ONLY important part and the ONLY thing worth remembering or repeating is that the overturning judge is GAY.

Nope, I told him that I was a Pastafarian. He is looking for the nearest CatOlick church, needs to bathe in holy water. OR he got hooked up in a three way with two wayward priests. I am putting all my money on the three way.

Should a judge who is black recluse himself or herself if the defendant is black? How about a female judge on a rape case?

Danny, it's a simple fact of reality. Changing the definition of a word doesn't change reality.
What word is being redefined? Certainly isn't marriage. It's still defined as a "union", and "institution", and a "ceremony". Doesn't change when gays enter into one.

ANYONE looking at two couples; a heterosexual couple and a gay couple will see the difference.
The same can be said for a tall couple, a midget couple, an inter-racial couple, or a handicapped couple. As always you have no point. Couples aren't required to look the same stupid.

No, the sad thing is that religious fanatics like you want to make an issue out of something that isn't an issue. And your need to paint us as "angry" just shows how ridiculously stupid you are.

Yes hon, we all know how much insecure cretins like you need to feel special. But your need for extra attention from your little Sky Santa and his fellow followers isn't going to stop the rest of us from having our government recognize us equally. THAT is reality bitch.

BTW, all us gays aren't "boys". But then, the most ardent religious fanatics like you tend to forget that. So busy promoting their agenda. You see Kimare Whore, that's how we gays can pin point the most ridiculous of your kind. They are all solely wrapped up in the male/male sex. Like you, they think of nothing else. Like you, they are sick.

Back to the response at hand;
Ironically the post referred to mocking me about a paper validating normality while gays vainly attempt to acquire a paper validating their normality with heteros.
Ah, isn't that cute. The religiwhore thinks the gays are trying to acquire a paper validating their normality!!!
Unlike you c*nt, we don't need one. We aren't trying to acquire one, because there's no need for one. Chomp on that bitch.

What's the big deal anyway. Why do you people try to make the rest of us accept your way of life? You know, we don't have to like it.... I can be as intolerant as I want...
Your gay - I think gay is wrong.

Jonah, everyone knows when you go to 'bitch' you have no answer.
No dear, everyone knows that when I go to "bitch" it's because you've become more sanctimoneous than usual, and because you've earned it. And everyone in the forum that doesn't require a piece of paper to prove their sanity knows I did have an answer (ppsssssttt - that would be everyone but you dearie).

The answer was that our government also ensures that we are free "from the people". SCOTUS has already clearly determined that YOU don't get to vote away the fundamental rights of others. And SCOTUS has already determined marriage to be a fundametnal right.

Did you comprehend it this time bitch, or do you need us to draw some pictures for you?

When responding to you, quite often. Only because I don't want to wear out c*nt, which is much more appropriate for you.

You of all people in here need srious mental help. You are the worst of the worst. The ONLY thing you are trying to aqure is recognition form the Feds and society, this is proof you belong to a second class group

You didn't present any reality. You presented a litany of nonsense that started with "If you believe.....". You initiated a discussion based on beliefs, so it was totally appropriate to respond in kind.

If you weren't someone that required a piece of paper to declare their sanity, you would have already recognized that.

But please, don't let that get in the way of you continuing to make a complete asshat of yourself. Watching your little childish meltdown play out here publically on Topix is such a hoot!!

[QUOTE who="Prof Marvel"
Larry Brinkin demolishes the self-serving gay myth that a homosexual can't be a pedophile once and for all.
[/QUOTE]Hon, I'm not sure what planet other than Earth you might be referring to, but I don't know of anyone on this one who has said that homosexuals can't be pedophiles. On Earth, they just aren't the pedophiles you make them out to be. "Homosexual pedophilia" and same sex child molestation are not proof that the individuals responsible are homosexual, in fact, the vast majority of such individuals identify as and live as heterosexuals in terms of their ADULT sexual attractions. Birkin (if he is in fact guilty), is an exception rather than the rule. Study after study has proved that same sex attracted to adults pedophiles and child molesters aren't disproportionate to the percentage of same sex attracted to adults.
