    What intent you talking about?

    I knew full well about her situation when I asked her to marry me.
    I married Lena because I loved Lena.Not because you or some deity that has no bearing on my life approves.
    When my eldest child got married,she needed my and Lena's blessing.She didn't need to give a crap about what you,or anyone else thought about it.
    When my youngest wants to get married,she needs my and Lena's blessing not yours or anyone else.We have no problem with her being a lesbian.

    i hope you understand that this is your OPINION and nothing more and its also meaningless to equal rights

    Awesome.

    I'm still waiting for the day a SSM opponent can explain how somebody elses ability to marry changes their marriage.

    My marriage is defined by my spouse and me. Not some church, not some god, not some book written a 1000 years ago and translated umpteen ca-billion times, and certainly not some hypocrite like Dooble.

    1.) exactly, youll be waiting forever because the fact is it doesnt at all, equal rights will never effect YOUR own marriage.

    2.) this is also 1100% correct but what is also 100% correct even if your marriage was defined by "some church, some god or some book written a 1000 years ago"

    equal rights STILL wouldnt impact that one bit because nobody is chaining what the church does or what some god says or what so religious books says.

    all that stuff isnt effected at all.

    but it's not about equal rights....at least that's the excuse several supporters used when I asked about the same equal right for siblings and/or polygamists
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    yes it is equal rights, as explained to you before you simply dont understand what equal rights are. Would you like to go over them again? I gladly will.
    Siblings and polygamy would be NEW rights, not equal rights.

    and for the record id support polygamy 100% as long as its consenting sound mind adults.
    incest i PERSONALLY would "support" but i would STOP them if they wanted to fight for NEW rights like that, the only concern i would have is the bearing of children (how safe or unsafe is it)

    So you're going to ignorantly throw out the incest card?

    Is pedophilia next?
    Bestiality?

    A much more direct analogy would be inter-racial marriage.

    Are you against that?

    If she didn't have her ovaries removed, she would've been able to have a child. I'm guessing she would've wanted to have a child if she hadn't lost her ovaries.

    No, it isn't equal rights. We already discussed this the other day. At least I discussed it. You just kept bumbling through like a blunt instrument. Do you not understand how equal rights work? You have to actually have them before you can exercise them.

    Some religious people don't eat red meat on Fridays.
    Some religious people won't dance or drink alcohol.
    Some religious ladies won't wear pants.

    It's called choice. If you believe it's wrong for gay people to marry, don't marry somebody of the same sex.

    Providing a choice is the human, and christian thing to do. It's not judging, or casting stones. You won't be condoning anything by being silent.

    As long as you are true to yourself, and true to YOUR religion, whatever anyone else does should NOT be your concern.

    Let whatever GOD or GODS there may be, figure all that out.

    Your job is not to judge others, but to live your own life.

    Your religious morals are not mine, nor are they anyone elses.
