    Igboland was the only connection to Nigeria. If that's not relevant, why the reference to Islam?

    That's not what I said, nor does that have anything to do with socialism. I said that there are no special rights being handed out, or that gays are alone in demanding equality of marriage. I want the right to marry a consenting adult of either sex, regardless of whether or not I intend to use it. But I certainly didn't advocate removing the requirement for consent for marriage, so the idea that anyone can marry "whatever" they want is certainly outside the scope of what I was talking about. But you're not suffering from a grievous mental deficiency, so you already knew that. So why not get off the slippery slope and talk about what we're talking about, the right of consenting adults to marry one another.

    Can gays procreate through gay sex? Yes or No
    Gays are not a separate species. Whatever genetic factors produce homosexuality are not possessed exclusively by homosexuals. For all we know, it might be a side effect of some other beneficial mutation. That homosexuals do not have children with each other is immaterial to a small propensity for homosexuality to be a part of what makes us human. What makes an individual survive and reproduce is not always beneficial to the species as a whole. Effectively mixing a portion out of the gene pool (though plenty of gay men and women had children with heterosexuals throughout history, and continue to do so now, also through new technologies that remove the need for heterosexual sex for them to procreate) in exchange for other benefits could be helpful to the survival of the species.

    Since I made no error, that would be inaccurate. What I DID do is dismantle the procreation argument quite completely... and I noticed that you had no response to it, quite predictably.

    Bronson, do try debating what I said. I know that it would be far easier for you to debate what you WANT me to have said, but challenge yourself. I said that procreation is not a determinant to the ability to marry after YOU commented on procreation. Stick to the topic.

    Marriage has never meant "the coming together of 2 people"

    It has always meant the coming together of a man and a woman for the purposes of creating a family. Marriage is about children. Bringing race into this is racism against blacks. Gays never were targeted and told they couldn't drink from water fountains because of their skin color.

    Again, it's a simple question that you can't answer. Nobody can.

    Why do gays get the special right to redefine marriage so they can get married, but other sexual interest groups cannot?
    1) Your argument is an appeal to tradition logical fallacy and is therefore invalid.
    2) If other groups want to redefine marriage, let them try. This discussion is about SSM. Your red herrings are irrelevant.
    3) Marriage is NOT about bringing children as I have proven. Procreation is not a requirement for marriage.

    So, your entire post has been reduced to rubble. What new irrelevancies are you going to post now?

    Got it
    Actually, I answered the question. Your position on this is a red herring and is irrelevant.

    So, tell us, do you have anything that validly contributes to the conversation to add? Because thus far, you haven't.

    I don't really care what the justices of any stripe say on that....

    marriage, in many cultures, has not always been between a man and a woman.

    is it extremist to recognize facts?
