And back then, that bright, shiny new word took on all the traditions of the word it replaced, because it had the same meaning. If the meaning is different, the traditions will be different. See the exchange between myself and Rat for a few examples specifically pertaining to marriage.

    On that subject, you'll note that Rat and I had a perfectly friendly exchange. That's because he addressed what I wrote, as opposed to what he assumed I meant. I hope I was as fair to him. I've not responded to most of your comments because they appear to be based presumptions, and largely unrelated to what I've written. I see no need to defend or expand upon arguments I've never made. As such, we have no basis upon which to continue this particular discussion. In light of that, I'll not respond to you again, on this subject.
    what the heck are you talking about, you told me that I was wrong that the word is only 700 years old now you are saying you didnt say that? LMAO
    the word is OLDER than 700 years period and thats a fact

    if you are so misunderstood explain your stance on the TOPIC AT HAND, do you think its right to stop it, why? and explain how its not discrimination?

    or just run away because you know you cant answer the questions, thats what I thought. make excuses and hide and attempt to write me off and discredit what i said but it wont work and anybody that can read can see that. Like I said what YOU wrote has NO barring on my OP and this thread if you want to debate something else make your own thread LMAO or dont get up set when I tie them (big gasp) to the subject at hand, otherwise answer my questions or move on in defeat

    As I'm sure you've noticed,
    But I have to admit, I'm still missing something. Do I need to cut and paste the (bracket sign)quote= etc. for each one, or is there a way to do that automatically? I get the quote part, but I'm doing something wrong on the attribution section of it.
    Here ya go....

You can even break up their post into multiple quotes to respond to each part of their post individually. Just begin each new section with the "QUOTE=Member" you see at the top and "/QUOTE" at the end of each section.

    So I do need to cut and paste the name. But the number is linked to the specific post. I think I get it now.
    Thanks.

    I'll check out those other forums when I get a little more time.

    Those are pages to this forum. The first takes to the frequently asked questions page. One shows you who's online and what they're doing, another is where you can request an award for military service or similar.

    The last one is a map showing you every member's approximate location on earth.

    As I understood it, he said that the word "marriage" originated ~700 years ago.
    However, he also said that the meaning applied to it was used long before, although obviously different words were used to communicate that meaning.

    Re: Gay Marriage, is it right to stop it?

    Queer marriage is a detriment to society. Although the definition of acceptable marriage has been refined over 5000 years of human history, the legal union of two men or two women has never been sanctioned by a successful society.

    thanks but i got what he meant but the word itself has been proven to be older and extremely older if you ignore the current word marriage and go by its other names,

    Please save derogatory terms has they just make you look foolish and show your obvious bias and bigotry

    also who says its a detriment? Probably the same people that said the same thing about equal rights for women and minorities lol

    also define successful society? LMAO who gets to determine that? was rome successful? The Mayans? only till the end i guess. If in 100 years our society is gone will we be successful or no? successful is totally subjective.

    We still stand at zero
    Thanks again to everybody

    You mean "queer"? That's not derogatory, as queer groups call themselves that.

    A society is successful that lasts for a relatively long period of time, grows and prospers.

    You don't seem to accept normal benchmarks.
