Depending on the jurisdiction, an unmarried couple simply living together may or may not be responsible for each other's debts.
exactly, you could just apply the same to non married but cohabiting couples

Apart from calling for discrimination against homosexuals of course...
That's your ill-informed opinion. Given your other comments, I don't have any respect for your opinion, thus what you say is discounted. It's anyhow a misrepresentation.

You know that study I showed, where they tested "straight" homophobes reactions to male porn and found that 80% were aroused themselves weren't asked outright either if they were homophobes. They were asked a series of questions to determine whether or not they were homophobes. I bet you that some of the questions asked pertained to equal rights for homosexuals and if you answered that you were against them, that you would be in the homophobe group...
You bet? That's one of the problems with your view of this whole thing situation- ungrounded assumptions.

And for the record, I didn't actually say you were gay - I pointed at an independent study that showed that 80% of homophobes are actually gay themselves, and drew the conclusion from that, that there's a good chance that you're gay too.

You must be awfully insecure about your own sexuality to get so angry...
Keep digging... Interesting little backpedal there, though. You must be awfully insecure to backpedal.

As for any legal action against you, despite your current bluster, Hazza, I have no doubt you'll be asking a moderator to remove any potentially libelous comments once you are served.

why should it matter Conqy? I get mistaken for and accused of being straight all the time but I am secure enough in my sexuality to laugh it off.

It seems to me that to be offended at being mistaken for being gay you would have to have a pejorative view of homosexuality in the first place.
Perhaps you should review libel law. Then again, it's obvious Hazza wasn't trying to compliment me. Maybe you need to take that up with him.

maybe rubbing his nose in it will help him and badbob come out from the closet and be proper happy gays. get a whiff of california, boys.
Keep dreaming. Additionally, perhaps you should look at the polls in California on the constitutional amendment on the November ballot.

Some things are just wrong. Gay marriage is one of them.

I agree. I happen to really hate the taste of beer, and think it is totally wrong. I don't drink much alcohol anyway, so I think I'll become a teetotaling Baptist and start lecturing everyone I meet on the ungodly sinfulness of alcohol.

REPENT ALL YE SINNERS IN THE BIERGARTENS, OR ELSE YOU ARE DOOMED TO GOD'S WRATH!

The primary unfounded assumption that Hazza makes is that anyone opposed to same-sex marriage is irrefutably a homophobe.

I'm pretty sure even he would agree that the owner(s) of the following website is/aren't homophobes:

http://www.gaysdefendmarriage.com/

No doubt there are more examples of gay people opposed to same-sex marriage. The point is that there are many possible reasons to be opposed to same-sex marriage rather than "homophobia"- a blanket accusation that is disproven by the fact some gay people oppose same-sex marriage as well as the fact that there are other arguments made in opposition to it. While I understand that this is an emotional issue for a lot of people, I suggest taking the time to actually consider the views and arguments of others, both those who disagree with you and those who do agree rather than hurling unfounded accusations.

Here's a quote from the site.

I believe that many lesbians make terrific mothers. It’s just that they make lousy fathers.

Let me correct that for you BB, Somethings are just wrong, being GAY is one of them!

I agree. I happen to really hate the taste of beer, and think it is totally wrong.
I'll gladly drink a pint of piss poor Jever/London Pride/Tennents over a pint of man milk any day

a question of taste.

Oh and on another note, I'm sick of this, Homophobe=closet gay approach. That may have worked for ol' Dubya with his "You're either with us or you're with the terrorists" speach, but it seems the standard line out of you uphill gardeners whenever someone comments on your sick behavioural patterns. Critisizing you does not automatically mean we want to be like you. So is that it? the standard approach is "You're either one of us or you'ld like to be?" Jeez, it's like being back in nursery.

Feckin' freaks the lot of you and I wish you all the very best your fruitcake lifestyle can give to you, HIV. No kids, no respect, no legacy, no backbone just Three little letters and hopefully a hell of a lot of pain and suffering.

Gay weddings FFS, what's next? Paedos marrying children, animal "lovers" tieing the knot with their pets?

Gays are a freak of nature that thankfully is being dealt with "natures way"

Another quote from the site:

While many gays and feminists don’t think there is any difference between men and women, virtually every society in history has disagreed.

This internet persona thinks you're more camp than a row of pink tents at the cock chugging world cup. Do I win a serving of libel too?

But giving is totally hetero, so you're safe.

Oh jesus Conquistador, at least own up to it like Badbob djgrazy and many of the other homophobes on here. This "I'm not a homophobe but I have many legitimate rational reasons to oppose gay marriage" line is very weak.

Oh wait, I'm sorry, just like a generation of racists before you, you're not filled with hate, but rather simply "defending traditional marriage".

Your only "rational" defense of disallowing homosexual marriage as a right was that somehow allowing it would open the floodgates to people marrying minors, relatives, and sea-monkeys.

Bonus homophobe points for the pedophilia/homosexuality allusion there... but your line of argument was totally invalidated by the fact that in Lawrence vs. Texas a ban on homosexual sex was overturned using the 14th ammendment without invalidating bans on: pedophilia, incest, and bestiality.

Some relevant quotes from the decision, since last time you didn't read it, simply saying you "assumed it was ruled on the basis of privacy"

Kennedy spent most of his opinion casting doubt on the factual findings of the court in Bowers, that homosexual sodomy is a widely and historically condemned practice.
The majority decision found that "the intimate, adult consensual conduct at issue here was part of the liberty protected by the substantive component of the Fourteenth Amendment's due process protections."

Only if the one on the receiving end has bumps in the right places and a wizzards sleeve since birth. I wouldn't be able to raise it any other way.

Fat man with a protruberant anus? My, you are into some freaky shit! Whatever spins your dial dude.

You godless heathen! You are contributing to the breakup of traditional family values with every beer you drink!

According to the Southern Baptists, as stated in their resolution in June 2006

Years of research confirm biblical warnings that alcohol use leads to physical, mental, and emotional damage (e.g., Proverbs 23:29-35); and

Alcohol use has led to countless injuries and deaths on our nation's highways; and

The breakup of families and homes can be directly and indirectly attributed to alcohol use by one or more members of a family; and

The use of alcohol as a recreational beverage has been shown to lead individuals down a path of addiction to alcohol and toward the use of other kinds of drugs, both legal and illegal;
SINNERS REPENT!
