    This is dishonest IMO but again lets say its true
    If marriage doesnt promote monogamy then to me it further proves that length or relationships is MORE of an invalde argument than it was to begin with

    Next is, in our culture, raising children in marriage already is a non factor, you dont have to nor are required too, so thats not an argument either.

    Is that why they make you promise to have kids and force to you too?
    Is thats why getting a marriage license requires you to have kids?

    Oh thats right none of the is true.

    You pre se are flat out wrong, and even if I wanted to pretend your fantasy was true a Gay Couple with children can EASILY accomplish what you made up.

    Besides, sometimes it is good to have a fresh start on topics, so that it isn't a small group of people arguing one point back and forth, devolving the thread into just an argument over one particular part of the whole argument.
    Ooooooh no no no
    My apoligies if you thought I was taking a jab at you in anyway, I wasnt, I was just making a statement. I agree sometimes new angles at a debate do refresh it. Also sometimes its fun to have a break from normal debate. I find this topic fun because it can't be won logically by the other side, its entertaining to watch people drown and participate in a trap shoot at times Not fair, but still entertaining.

    Hey look, this is interesting: Lessons from a Gay Marriage | Psychology Today

    But despite stereotypes of gay relationships as short-lived, the divorce rate among Danish homosexuals is only 17 percent, compared to 46 percent for heterosexuals.

    In regards to bias, yes, at times I see bias. Would you like to debate bias and just what that entails? I'm here for ya'.
    Do you just make this stuff up as you go? I have no problem with those terms in general, I laugh at yours or ANYBODY'S misuse of BLANKET statements of a lefty or a right or independent etc etc. When people GROUP them all together it shows a persons obvious bias, their unwillingness to actually defend their stance and their insecurities about it.

    I would just like to point out that there is someone or a group of someones trying to be cute with the poll (as usual), which is pretty much why I always make polls like this public.

    At least be honest enough to log in before you vote for something like this, instead of spamming the option that you apparently are embarrassed to admit that you actually believe or want people to believe is more popular, when in reality, there hasn't been an identifiable person to associate with any of those votes for "special right", while there have been almost 27 (less if don't include nameless votes) "equal protection" and almost 11 (I know at least 7 or 8 named votes at least) "other".

    Just wanted to set the poll straight. I do wish there was an option to restrict voting to only people logged in. Oh well.

    Anyway, yes, gays are more than capable of raising and socializing children just as good and sometimes better than their hetero counterparts; which is why I welcome gays who want to raise families into the institution. Gays, and any-other coupling, who do not wish to have children can piss off.

    See the little blue block next to centrist77 in YOUR post, that will take you back to the post YOU replied too. And then their will be another one in which "I" replied too and you can follow them all the way back. I qouted you so you shouldnt have any trouble figuring it out. I didnt take it as rude at all just as a sign that you either cant keep up, ignorance to what you have said in the past or an inablity to defend your stance, no biggie

    No need to because it is in fact invalid and meaningless to today's institution of marriage. The FACT that you dont need to have kids to get married or don't need to have them after you get married makes your statement totally irrelevant to the GAY marriage topic.

    Now if you would like to debate your statement in a GENERAL way you are welcome too, I was just pointing out that its meaningless to the GAY marriage topic that's all.

    Ive pointed this out in other threads too, it always happens with gay rights, seems those particular people are very insecure and childish about their stance of wanting to discriminate against their fellow Americans. Thats why I always make my polls public so you can easily click on them and see if people really voted.
