So just shut the hell up with your horribly bigoted thinking.

Also QFE.

Unfortunately, Niner, you were indeed mistaken.

Sorry, but that still doesn't do your argument any good.

Doesn't make it 'misplaced'. Just because your fallacy may have some truth to it does not make it a logically sound argument. Sorry though.

Luckily that's not what we're discussing. We're talking about whether or not gay marriage should or should not be legalized. Whereas you are discussing why it has not yet been nationally legalized.
