Texas: Gay-marriage ban best for children

Learn to read. I didn't make the argument, Dan did. I was merely respondingAnd yet no state places a requirement of procreation or the ability to procreate in order to marry. I am more than happy to make you look like an idiot all over again, WonderingOnce again, I was posting to refute Dan's argument, which he seem no better equipped to defend than you were. It isn't an intelligent argument. Then again, it isn't being made by intelligent people.  (9 hrs ago | post #37)

Wondering, that you do not understand degrees of judicial scrutiny is no concern of mine. This is America, and you are free to be a bigoted and ignorant imbecile if you choose to beWondering, I will be delighted to watch you idiotic logic fail again. You never disappoint, and your understanding of the law is childlike.  (9 hrs ago | post #2869)

They are arguing against the US Constitution and its guarantee of equal protection, you do the math. oh, wait, math isn't your strong suit, is itWondering, I support the US Constitution. You are the one making an argument to the contrary, and it si an argument you seem to lack the grey matter to factually supportClassic Wondering logic, completely without factual foundation.  (10 hrs ago | post #33)

Sorry, Dan, the fact that the state does not require procreation, or even the ability to procreate proves your assertion to be falseNo, it's simply irrelevantI just did, and your point is still lacking in factual support. Repeated incantation of an opinion does not transform it into fact.  (10 hrs ago | post #32)

Wondering, come back to the topic, and learn to count. You look like an idiot when you advance irrelevant arguments that illustrate your inability to understand basic concepts.  (10 hrs ago | post #29)

The Coming Christian Revolt

Sorry, Alan, you are misrepresenting my position again, which tends to imply that your reading comprehension skills are, on the whole, rather poor. I simply haven't made the argument that you claim I have, and you seem to lack the intelligence to address my argument as it was posed. The reality remains that the government does derive its authority from the consent of the governed, and anti-discriminatio n laws have been regularly challenged through due process, and have never been struck down. That you may disagree with them is utterly irrelevant. Thanks you for once again underscoring your devious nature by telling bald faced lies.  (10 hrs ago | post #261)

Dan, just because you cannot find a study that supports your conclusion, does not mean that data does not exist. http://www.nbcnews .com/health/kids-h ealth/children-sam e-sex-parents-are- healthier-study-n1 49901 http://thinkprogre ss.org/lgbt/2013/0 6/05/2106751/same- sex-parenting-stud yIf you need to parse the comment and only respond to one facet of it, that is a sign that your position isn't particularly strongWhich is why we have agencies for child protection services. Even in straight houses there are adverse outcomes. It appears that your argument is growing weaker by the momentDan, is procreation, or the ability to procreate a prerequisite for, or a requirement of, legal marriage? If not, your assertion is simply not trueNo, Dan, there can't be. Arguing to deny fellow citizens equality under the law is bigoted, it is irrational, and as you have just illustrated it is without rational, logical, or constitutional basis. We can't agree to disagree that some Americans deserve to be second class citizens with less than equal protection of the law, because some people are honorable Americans who won't abide by that kind of hypocrisy.  (10 hrs ago | post #26)

That says more about your reading comprehension skills than anything else, and tends to reinforce my notion that you lack the capacity to learn. Congratulation, half-wit, you are reinforcing my point. Would you care to come back to the topic at hand, or continue trollingWondering, their rights were never violated, nor would they be by complying with the law. You've yet to offer any valid argument that their rights actually were violated, or would be for performing services for those with differing views. Were it not for the fact that you are an idiot, you might be able to factually support your opinion.  (10 hrs ago | post #494)

Court favors disclosing anti-gay marriage donors

Wondering, polygamy, in addition to being utterly irrelevant to the topic at hand, seeks inherently greater protection for three or more people by its very definition. Were you not a half-wit, you might understand this simple fact. Then again, were you not a half-wit, you could probably stay on topic.  (10 hrs ago | post #1819)

No, Wondering, and intelligent businessman operates a business apart from their person for the purpose of generating a profit. If they are really intelligent they incorporate to limit legal liability further insulating themselves as a person from the business they operateWondering, on a corporate level, they are, in point of fact, the same. Both are limited liability corporations run by individuals. The difference is that IBM, being an intelligent business, does not inject the personal beliefs of the ownership into their business practices. Thank you for once again offering your childlike view of the world and further proving your own intellectual limits.  (10 hrs ago | post #2864)

No, I meant what I saidAnd you are the poster child for idiocyWondering, I only respond to you to offer your further opportunities to look like an imbecile. Do you notice how you have once again posted a series of ad hominem attacks while failing to address the topic at hand? I thought you didn't like posts that were off topic? Apparently, not your own. Face it kiddo, no one is being forced to accept anything, equal protection of the law for all is being upheld.  (11 hrs ago | post #491)

Oh, no! I've been called out for telling the truth about your lies. Do you know what, that in no way worries me. I don't mind telling the truthI've said nothing about you that you have not earned. I don't deny the first amendment, and the baker did break the law, a fact you seem conveniently willing to overlookBusiness is business, faith is faith. One can easily provide a service to one with differing views because business is business. If one's faith is so deep that they feel the need not to provide services to those who believe differently, they would be wise to open a non-profit, tax free, ministry, or to open a for profit, taxable, club where they could have input into who may avail themselves of the business's services. Providing a service for someone holding differing religious views in no way violates the religious freedom of the proprietorNo, he was offered options, and made a choice. He could serve everyone, he could drop the service of making wedding cakes, or he could close. Face it, kiddo, he broke the law.  (11 hrs ago | post #2858)
