    Your inability to actually comprehend what is being said is really not surprising. I provided an example of your response being a dishonest addressing of the issue. Marriage is available to gay couples much in the way it was to interracial couples 70 years ago. In the sense that it wasn't.
    Exactly; and well said.

    It's not a matter of "enforcement" so much as what you want to promote. We've witnessed the harm that can be done to society when the state inadvertantly promoted illegitamacy through welfare programs. It's in the best interest of the state that procreation occur within marriage.
    You are discussing apples and oranges, here. Irrelevant...as from what I have come to expect from you in this debate. Children born out of wedlock are not in the realm of what I am discussing. Single parent families do NOT do as well as two parent families, nor do the children. I think I have made that clear. Procreation is NOT the determinant of a successful two parent family. Please tell us when you come up with a point that is valid.

    I have to remember that you are the guy who has been unable to comprehend the context of this debate right from the beginning. That's what I like about you textmaster. You don't get it at all, but you actually believe your inaccuracies. Makes debating you so simple.

    I did. Not my problem if you don't agree and keep throwing your hands up saying the same thing...inaccurate as it is.

    I love it when you misrepresent my position. So, since you are so good at research (), please give us evidence that this is precisely what the organs were designed for. A link to the designer's website would be helpful. If you cannot, than I guess you have no proof...but then again, you should be used to that.

    Hatuey's point exactly addresses this issue.
    government sanctioned marriage = public marriage

    Awww...isn't that cute. She's having a temper tantrum. It must be tough getting destroyed in this debate from so many sides, Taylor. It's OK...have yourself a good cry and come back later. We'll all still be here. Perhaps then you'll have some evidence to back up your position...whatever it will be at THAT moment.

    You guys are kidding. textmaster doesn't understand the debate we are having, nor does he know how to debate it. How could he apologize?
