LOL. Dummy, everyone is treated equally- no one is allowed to marry a person of the same sex and everyone is allowed to marry someone of the opposite sex.

You mean like there was no discrimination in preventing interracial marriages, since all black and white people could already marry someone of the same race?

That argument didn't work well, then. Why do you think it smells any better today?

Did the societal ideal suddenly begin to favor only loveless marriages of convenience? When did that happen?

I thought you wanted to deal with "what is?"
No it didn't. It only banned new marriages but preserved all of the EXISTING same sex marriages.

Another reason for it's silliness and it's unconstitutionality.

You can't claim to be "preserving or protecting" something, where there is living proof that what you are protecting it against causes no harm and only good.

In contrast, neither men nor women are disproportionately disadvantaged or burdened by the fact that New York's Domestic Relations Law allows only opposite-sex couples to marry—both genders are treated precisely the same way." Hernandez v Robles
Of course, that's patently absurd, since of COURSE gay men and lesbian women are disproportional disadvantages and burdened by such bans.

This reasoning counted only exist if there were no such thing as people who can only be attracted to the same gender.

Try proving that one.

That's why this type of reasoning has fallen out of favor legally.

Deal with it.

I was scared and pumped on adrenaline. I jumped too soon. I misjudged how high we were. Maybe 12 feet. It hurt for a while and a little ever since but nothing debilitating until recently. Now I cannot walk and the docs aren't giving me a good prognosis. I had another surgery yesterday. Laposcopic surgery. Modern medicine is a blessing.
My age and the old injury combined, and here I am.
You're a real jerk and a creep, but I wouldn't wish it on you or anyone, Well maybe my ex wife...naaah. No one. Not even you or her.
Not being able to stand or walk is a life changing challenge. I'm up for it. I follow docs orders religiously.
Sorry to hear that. Was it a hot LZ? Where you in the 101, or 82nd

We have been through this before Rose, even the court told you that you are an idiot:
But this is factually untrue in some states, akpilot, and soon to be so in more. Gay marriage is expanding.

Civil rights movements throughout history do not have a history of being snuffed out easily, at least in this country. Maybe in North Korea or China they do, but not here.

Sorry.

IF New Jersey would allow it, you could get married to another man.

IF California didn't have prop 8, you could get married to another man.

IF you weren't so bigoted and paranoid, you'd support poly marriage.

IF you supported poly you wouldn't be a hypocrite!

IF you took your meds, you wouldn't be so angry.

Polygamy was already banned. Prop 8 didn't ban something that was already illegal. It banned Same sex marriage. You guys can spin it all you like. Prop 8 is going down. If you think that means polygamy will become legal, you have bigger problems.

As I have noted many times before, I focus on one single aspect of gay sex for two reasons; One, intercourse is at the heart of a union between a couple. Anal sex is an extremely poor counterfeit of nature's design. And two, anal sex is an inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning, clearly indicating a genetic defect.
While lesbian sex is simply unhealthy and demeaning, it still is a silly attempt by duplicate genders trying to imitate the design of evolution, the 'reunion' of diverse genders to one life form.
Poor little shame-based KiMerde. Such a neurotic prig.

Is it "gay sex" if lots of straight people do it, and most gay people don't? I believe it's called anal sex.
If you want the government to directly intervene and prevent all anal sex, then wouldn't that apply to straight folks as well? What kind of testing and regulation would you require the government to engage in to deny marriage license to any anal sex practitioners? Who would run it?
Who would pay for it?
And most importantly, who else but you would support it?
Not me! My g.f. would leave me!

And if all the laws were overturned, nothing would be illegal. You're a genius. A singular talent for stating the obvious.

Prop 8 prevents poly marriage EQUALLY to preventing same sex marriage.

If all other laws against poly marriage were gone except prop 8, that would be the only thing making poly illegal in CA.

Stop trying to hog all the victimhood. Sheesh! You are rude.

Prop 8 effectively bans polygamy too. You can spin that it doesn't all you like.
