Re: Please change subtitles
The questions aren't hard, but most if it ignores that I've already answered it, and the rest is just silly, and I have no more interest in this thread. Sorry.

Re: Please change subtitles
I don't share any of your assumptions or judgments, I've answered the questions as well as I have any interest in doing, it would only be counterproductive to repeat myself, and good evening to you.

Re: Please change subtitles
Done all it seems worth it to do, Arach. If it doesn't convey anything already, it wouldn't convey any more no matter how well I elaborated it beyond that.

Re: Agree to disagree!!
it's a pretty reasonable question.
Not if it's already been done and ignored or otherwise abused.

Things Change and watzimagiga
Thank you, Things Change, and watzimagiga. Unfortunately, winning a debate around here is a matter of popularity, which side has the most and the loudest voices declaring the other side wrong whether they have a shred of reason on their side or not.
Although I agree with your conclusions, watzi, I have to say that my argument has been that marriage is NOT specifically a Christian tradition, in fact it is universal among all peoples throughout all time, and always it unites male and female. That's the point of it as you affirm. Thanks for joining in.

Re: Things Change and watzimagiga
"analogous to marriage" is not marriage. Nobody is saying homosexuals don't get together for long term relationships, often for life, but marriage is something else, {edit: requiring culture-wide legitimation, which is what we are fighting}. And when they "marry" for a period of time, as some are described as doing in that article, then end it so that a marriage to the opposite sex can take place, that is not really a marriage.

Re: Things Change and watzimagiga
Tehy say it's plentiful and then describe things that aren't marriage or are extremely rare fringey practices. I'm against polygamy but it's heterosexual and I include it in my statement that all cultures in all times have recognized marriage as the uniting of heteroseuxals.

And if Faith is still out there I'd still like to know should lesbians get double rights in marriage as they've no man to "protect them"
No gays deserve any special rights over single people just because they have this unnatural relationship that has nothign to do with marriage. They should have all the same rights as single people do.
But it is especially ludicrous and obnoxious to think of two men demanding special rights.
