    People of legal age should be allowed to marry whomever they want. I include polygamists, sisters who want to marry their brothers, and gay people in that.

    This is an issue that shouldn't be political, just like abortion.

    Is this the biggest problem in the USA today? Not at all.

    Free love all around. It doesn't affect me either way.

    Show me the votes, actual votes, not polls by whomever... where have you and your side the majority of votes?

    Ummm....Not very astutely argued there, I am afraid... couldn't come up with even one single actual counter, I mean besides the equivalent of putting your hands on your hips, jutting your chin forward and sticking out your tongue?
    All four ballot measures in the 2012 election went to the marriage equality side. Were you out of the country?

    Defense: "Nice try, your honor."

    Again, there's a good reason why your side is doing poorly in court.
    My lord man, I have posted the equivalent of pages and pages... and your tiny non-consequential cumulative sum total of actual points made in this entire debate comes down to what? Nada... and then you want to come in and try to exploit a two word response which was a retort to a nonsensical post?

    Better brush up on debate technique there, you see, you actually have to have points and counters, not just simplistic verbal mirages that try to mimic, but only mock, actual debate.

    Yano?

    Posting more words and fancier words does not a stronger argument make.
    You've spammed the same thing over and over and ignored or dismissed the hard questions.

    Then you've been blatantly hypocritical with this procreation thing when you don't include infertile couples, and refuse to explain why you are treating them differently than homosexual couples.

    No, what's happening is that we're all stepping down to your level of debate.

    Want to place some money on it? Say, a forum donation of an amount of your choosing?

    Nah, its just laughable that you cannot see "people" from the other side of the political spectrum doing the exact same thing. But its not even a point worth languishing any further upon.

    My response was apt. Deuce destroyed your argument, and rather than address it you say "nice try." You should take your own advice.

    The truly funny thing though is that your arguments, terrible as they are, are just as bad as the ones presented in court.
