    Too late. Your fake quotes already have been transferred to "Famous Military quotes", by Google.

    No, your bias is certainly skewing your perspective. The anti-SSM side is EASILY nastier and more insulting and has been for the entire time I've been at DP. I can count up the "perverts", "diseased", "disordered", "disgusting", and a whole host of others that will easily beat anything the pro-SSM side has said, both in volume and intensity. It's not even a close comparison.

There hasn't been any sense of empathy and I think battle lines are merely hardening. My position became more entrenched since the decision and all the subsequent hate-speech from the left. I know it can't be just me. I think its stupid of the left to goad their opponents into stiffer opposition but it seems that is what the intentions are. Whatever. The lines are drawn and positions hardened and I guess we will see how that works out for you. I wonder how many billions you will spend just trying to prove a point.
    I find it amusing that some on the right bitch and complain about the left pushing this issue, when it has been many on the right who have been lying about information and data, and attacking gays for years. If those on the right who have been so attacking were not so hypocritical about liberty, they would have supported this from the get-go.

    And one more thing. This kind of nasty and dishonest crap like you just posted again just stiffens the differences. Homosexuals weren't being compared to animal livers and kid touchers.
    This is why it is laughable to listen to you bitch about what those on the left say about those on the right who oppose SSM. I have seen more posters on this site compare gays to child molesters than I have EVER seen someone on the left call an anti-SSM person a bigot.

    You really shouldn't speak about things you don't know anything about... especially when your bias skews your perceptions.

    I proposed it a long time ago. You'd be amazed at how many on the anti-SSM side bitched and complained that it somehow altered the meaning of their "marriage".

    If it was as cut and dried as you would like to think it is, homosexual marriage would already be the law of the land. It will be an uphill battle instead of the done deal you pretend it is.
    Actually, the state's interest position is the winning position on this issue, not the equality position. If all legal arguments were focused on the state's compelling interest, demonstrating in this context that there is no difference between homosexual and heterosexual marriage, SSM would either have been approved or well on it's way. People on both sides are too caught up in the "equality" debate.

    Not really... though it depends on how one identifies WHY someone gets married. Problem is that the "why" is rarely addressed.

    Nowadays, people tend to get married because the person they want to marry is the person that they love. In THIS case, the argument that Papa bull makes is a complete failure. Unfortunately, the law doesn't recognize the "why". This is why the equality argument tend to hit a lot of snags. It's dishonest, but logical.
