That's exactly the case with SSM. Gold-plated shyte. It is deviant, because it deviates from the norm. That means that most of us don't do it.
And most of us don't write with our left hand either. Should we line all the lefties up and have them fixed?

If you and Kimare represent the best that your side has to offer, then you're doomed.

Oh wait a minute... You guys already lost!

Jizzy says he was in the Army. Unlike him I take a man at his word on that. I shouldn't because I'm probably wrong. There are fake heroes out there and Jizzy is just the type.

Where is the "racially charged and phonetically offensive" part? Their names couldn't have been Don and William, so what the hell are they talking about?
I'm not sure. I've quit trying to understand them. It's my little way in combating mental illness.

Do try to avoid Celestial Mechanics. Mass creates gravity. Even D could tell you that, when he's not pummeling at a tabletop, or the beliefs of children...
Dear, mass doesn't cause gravity; it responds to it. The actions of mass in relation to another object simply tells us that gravity is present. But it doesn't cause it.

In the future, it might be better to check out these things before coming here and making a complete fool of yourself.

No, but maybe can let them all get married. Wait, they already can. It was never an issue. and, no, we haven't lost yet, you kind of did, though, you were waiting for SCROTUS to mandate it at a national level, and they didn't. It barely made it past SCROTUS at all, 5-4, wasn't it? Oh, yeah, you were claiming that Sotomayor meant this and meant that, and all she meant was that if we have no right to determine laws concerning SSM, then we have no right to make ANY laws re: marriage, at all. and, the count still stands at 13=for, 37=against. Laughing all the way, because some of the politicians now wish to have SSM vetoed.
We won a major victory in the courts. The decision that was handed down included references to same-sex couples being treated as second class citizens. It also described the inequality of children who live in a family headed by same-sex couples.

These are the key phrases that will cause state's DOMA policies to fail when same-sex couples sue such states for refusing to acknowledge their marriage.

Here's how it will happen... A same-sex couple will apply for a marriage license and be denied. They will appeal and be denied. They will sue the state. The state court will find in favor of the state. The couple will then appeal to a federal district court. When it hits the federal court system, there's where John Robert's words will help topple state DOMA policies.

It'll take time. But, that's fine. We've got plenty of time to see that it happens.

This doesn't include all of the other states that are poised to push for marriage equality.

It doesn't matter how it happens, you only need to know that it will happen.

And you need to know that SCROTUS can't erase the knowledge that you're still a shit cultist.
