    The merits of the 1964 Civil Rights Act have already been decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, your minority opinion isn't worth the paper it's not printed on.

    The fact that you don't see that shows exactly what kind of a person you are.
    I'm sorry, but you can ramble on about whatever nonsense fallacy you wish to lay out in front of me, but at the end of the day my good fellow it is nothing more than a fallacy. You need to either defend the law or stop posting.

    If you don't like the law, let's see you and your small minority try to change it.

    I will watch and laugh while you waste your time on that.

    Kind of like how I'm wasting my time on someone that keeps repeating the same fallacy over and over again and thinks its an argument.

    Geez, now where have we seen someone doing exactly that...

    Oh wait, it's you!
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Why don't you just go play in the street like a good little boy? I'm sure all the other people will be aware of you.

    How much success have you had with changing the law that you hate so far?

    Moderator's Warning:
    Same sex marriage compromiseCephus and Henrin - knock it off!
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I didn't know SSM couples could reproduce. Damn I spend 2 days away from my computer and now SSM couple procreate babies, according to you. How do they do it? Via asexual reproduction?

    Cardinal, guessing by the lack of your ability to comprehend text, I will have to clarify my statements. No where in my posts does it say that I believe that SSM couples will be the root of our extinction. It will be the root of the eventual (if ever; this statement is being made based of the assumption that you rare born gay or lesbian") extinction of this gay gene or whatever it is, don't know don't really care. The only reason I'm on this thread is because of a specific post that was made a couple of days ago.

    And my "biological argument" in fact does not fail. It might "fail" to you because you obviously like to cherry-pick around details, picking out things you think are right instead of taking facts as a whole.

    It fails for me as well. There are heterosexual who can have children, but can marry. Homosexuals can adopt and raise kids. And people do marry for reasons other than children. He's also correct that we will keep making babies, not that a few less around the world wouldn't hurt.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Your further display of confusion regarding biology compounds your lack of understanding in this discussion.

    1. Homosexuals can reproduce. Same sex people people cannot reproduce with each other, but they can reproduce. Of course I could go into things like in vitro fertilization and adoption, but they would still be moot to whether homosexuals can be married because neither having children nor the means for having children is a consideration for allowing heterosexuals to marry.
    2. Homosexuals do not require homosexual parents, therefore they cannot breed themselves out of existence.

    There is nothing about your biological argument that doesn't fail.
