Is that what marriage is supposed to do? Clean up deviant behavior?

Does it matter? Mind your own.

Good luck with that....last time I checked.
Really? Are that ignorant to think that a baby cannot be concieved without marriage? Marriage is not required for procreation and procreation is not required of any marriage or for the 1049 federal rights. Why are so many conservatives so thick headed that they cannot understand this

People for whom marriage isn't really in the cards shouldn't worry about it.

You can't argue with what doesn't exist. He said NOTHING about gay marriage.

Hahaha. You're the one wanting to push your agenda on others - it's either marry in accordance with your beliefs or not at all.

The POINT is that there is a rational basis to discriminate against plural knowledge.

THAT is the test we use in the United States.

Whether or not you think it should be something different is irrelevant. Thankfully.


Also, you will note that it did not touch upon sibling or parent marriage.

Bla bla bla.

Marriage as far as the GOVERNMENT is concerned is a CONTRACT. Marriage has changed and taken different forms for different purposes across time and cultures.

Grow up.

You've lost. Western Civilization is progressing as it always does. You are free to leave at any time.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!! Drama queen! Gay marriage has been legal for well over a decade in New England, and that place is more stable and normal than the religious areas of this country. "As a conservative" you need to learn to live and let live. Nobody forcing you to get gay married, so deal with it.

You want to worry about pursuit of greed and money, take on the fat cat bankers and financiers that own this country and have sold our countrymen and jobs down the river for profits. Gay marriage is the LEAST of what you should be worrying your little head about.

That's a truly creative argument. Horse manure, but creative.

How does this sentence have ANYTHING to do with what I posted. SIBLING marriage... and the 0.0000001% of people who would do it, has ZERO bearing on my life. The question isn't, "why wouldn't society allow it?" It is, "why do and why WOULD you care at all?" How does it affect YOU. I'm sure you are fine with freedom up until the point YOU don't want to do something, right?

That's typically how your kind operates. Enemies of liberty.

But no, no crisis of "gayness." Instead, we had/have a crisis of small minded mental midgetry coming from self proclaimed "conservatives" who WILL be dragged into this century whether you like it or not.
