It's easy to get on the internet and claim that you have been married for 20 years.

Prove it, counselor.


Hmmm, not sure how I can "prove it" to your satisfaction. But I'll just say we were married at the Opera Guild House on Prytania Street by Judge Dominic Grieshaber in the 1980's. Look up Dom. He was the "marrying judge".

Your marriage is a good example of how difficult it is for a marriage between a man and a woman to last "until death do we part" especially when you have children.

You can love the woman and children and bust your arse to provide them with a decent life but that still may not be enough to keep the marriage together.

That's why when same sex marriage advocates point to the divorce rate of marriage between a man and a woman they haven't the foggiest idea how difficult it is for a man and a woman to stay married even in the best of circumstances.

I'm glad that you've been married to your wife for 20 years now Vor. Marriage between a man and woman and raising kids the right way are the fabric of a strong society.

Absolutely true, unfortunately. But what does that have to do with gay marriage?

Oh, wait . . .

Every time a same sex marriage supporter tells someone who is in favor of traditional marriage and opposed to same sex marriage that they should be more concerned about the divorce rate between married men and women than about same sex marriage I say, "What does that have to do with being opposed to same sex marriage?"

Okay, fine. I repeat the question.

Point being, there is no logical, objective reason to give a rat's arse if gay marriages are recognized by the state.

One, it changes the definition of marriage completely.

Two, begins the slippery slope of infringing upon religious freedom. If you think the agenda is just having "equal rights" i.e. tax laws (no tax is equal, nor fair fwiw), then you are simply blind.

Three, it grows gov't. I'm against growing the size and scope of gov't in any way, and gay marriage does indeed grow gov't. Libertarians and conservatives should be against it for this reason alone. Simple enough?

Not for you if you don't accept it.

No, it just means I'm not fricking paranoid.

Well, if that's the case, how about we shrink government by removing the right to vote from black people and women. That would reduce the amount of work that government has to do.

It changes the definition, period. And guess what, for those who "refuse" to accept it will be labeled as the evil "H" word.

Stay delusional.

Trying to equate voting rights for blacks and women to gay marriage is pure ignorance. Complete horse shite and cannot be defended at all.

Nonsense.

Other posters and I have given several logical reasons why same sex marriage should not be recognized by the state.

BTW, why do you continue to call it "gay" marriage when you know it is "same sex" marriage not "gay" marriage?

I was merely referring to the "expansion of government issue". It is apt.

Gee, I must have missed it in the five thousand bull shite posts I've read here. Give me a hint.

Again, not comparable. Granting voting rights to legal citizens is common sense.

Otherwise, you're just being a smartass here.

Why would you want to infringe on the right of Episcopalians to offer the marriage sacrament to whomever they want? Is their marriage less sacred than the one your church performs?

I must have posted some logical reasons five thousand times so I don't know how you missed them.

Is that also why homosexuals decided to call themselves "gay"?
