He had a son die at a young age, perhaps 9 or 10, and he claims that the boy was so good that he recognized his dad when he came to see him. In short: Quintilian was impressed that the kid knew his face.

Regarding a definition of marriage, I don't see how this is really complicated at all. It's as simple as a legal union of two consenting adults. Even the sexual activity element shouldn't be a prerequisite.

The same can be said for the mothers.

It's good to know that the Republicans are taking care of what really matters:

It's really sad that people that close minded are actually a representative of something...

In fact, your religion thread (and some of the reaction to it) where you had a nice go at Islam is a PERFECT illustration of what I really mean. You were picking on a target that wasn't acceptable. You should have gone after Christians. Then it would have been very popular. THIS is all I'm saying.
Oh, gotcha. Then I pretty much agree with you here

As an added bonus, your avatar automatically commands a sense of respect and admiration.

Apparently to some all wisdom begins the day one is born. Most certainly on this issue because to hold the belief that:
1) marriage requires a bride and a groom
2) a husband and a wife compliment each other in a way two members of the same gender cannot
3) or that children benefit from having both a mother and a father

is not only anti-gay, it's antiquated, it's bigoted, it's totally unsupported by one shred of evidence and apparently for those stubborn, "non-evolving," knuckledragging types such as myself -- the result of being bamboozled by "the conservative media-entertainment complex."

Can I just say your sanctimonious arrogance is breathtaking, with all due respect of course.

As I've said before, I understand why many people support SSM. I regret that the sentiment is rarely returned by its proponents.
What other 2000 year old laws would you like to bring back? If you like, we could list some for you.
An appeal to antiquity might be the most self deceptive, ignorant justification there is. You're in the medical field? What 2000 year old medical practices do you still defend?

Blood letting to flush evil spirits is woefully underutilized.

HRC's been on fire lately:

Top NOM Staffer Abruptly Ends Radio Interview | Human Rights Campaign

You should listen. It's only 3 minutes long.

I suppose most are missing the moment where the host states, "I think the societal ideal is for kids to be raised in a heterosexual, married environment." That is not a statement that should be so quickly disregarded.

Leeches are still occasionally used for establishing bloodflow in reattached limbs
