Congress made a law denying some Christians and and Muslims marriage according to their beliefs.
exactly, it was passed with Obvious bias, and the court recognized that fact..

thus DOMA will liley be struck down....along with prop 8, which has already been found unconstituional by the california supream court.

or were you refering to another federal law that you think usurps rights unfairly...??

could give the court a reason to ban gay marraige that WASNT based on prejudices, politics and personal belief.

he himself admitted that it was passed under such conditions.

The constituion clearly states that religious belifes are not to influence law making!!

we base our laws on the constittuion, not the bible..

sorry.

this isnt a nation founder by god to be run by jesus and his confused diciples...

Yes. The laws against poly and incest marriage are EQUALLY unconstitutional.

Geez, tough guy. Grammar. At least try. Relax. Take your time.

You my dearest sunshine are confused! Are you gay? How does it work, is there a wife man and a husband man? Do you switch roles, and positions?

Frankie raises a valid point. If the opposite sex requirement is no longer to be maintained because it is considered discriminatory, by what reasoning do we maintain the prohibition against blood relatives from marrying? Or limit the number of spouses to two? Both of them are discriminatory.

Same can be said about polygamy, and marriage between relatives. Fair is fair.

Exactly....no reason to ban marriage between any consenting adults.

XBox is very bigoted against polygamy.(S)he once posted an angry hissy-rant against it, including "What about the children?!"

But of course Rose_NoHo ignored the flagrant violation of her dopey "Rose's Law". Still, according to Rose's Law, XBox is a moron.

so you HAVE to wait until you are 18, even IF YOU KNOW your gay to date an older guy...??
ive seen alot of younger men with older guys.... they LOVE older guys
it never really peaks my freak meter...
JERRY was with LITTLE boys......hardly comparable to a teen who knows he is totally gay...
lets see what GAY people have to say??
you and i arnt that qualified to judge a situation like that..
it is certainly in the border lands.....good call mother superior...
ill think on that..
comparing him to a child molester isnt really fair though...
try harder next time...
Refreshing, to see that you have found a way to justify pedophilia. I see that it isn't pedophilia, if the younger boy seeks the company of the older man, that seems to exonerate the older man. Nice.

Your intellect is truly.......dizzying. Let's see what the other gays have to say, shall we? If anything. They might stay strangely silent on this issue, although I would use the phrase "closing ranks"...

mr.Reichardo...the bigot.
when you see a older man and a youger man together in harmony and love??
you see a child molester....
because that is what you want to see.
whe i see a 16 year old who really loves his older man??
i say "be careful" ...only as i would anybody dating someone that much older...
16 year old women date 30 year old men all the time..
some of them want their daddies??
mabey?
whatever....
it is a pretty permissive society when it comes to sexuality....
at the one I live in...
Riccardo sees clearly, as do I, that this is defined as pedophilia. The judge will also. So, you believe that you live in a society that is permissive enough to allow pedophilia, do you? We call that "Chicken-hawking", don't you? You HAVE heard that term before, haven't you? You are deranged, and perverted, to think that we would allow that.

In any dispute of such magnitude you'll find all sorts of malcontents on both sides of the fence. Why let that detail get in the way of reason and fact? I have presented the same argument about inheritance and end of life issues as marriage relates to them. The difference is I am not gay so I cannot deliver from his perspective.
I'm surprised that, in spite of having known and been friends with numerous homosexuals, veryvermilion is the one who made you think you could change your tune.
I believe the difference is that very few (at least in here) have the ability to drastically personalize the issue, as VV had done. I was rather surprised, too.

I hope it isnt too late already
were here to preach tolerance and acceptance of people who arnt like us....
who ever we may be..
try to not come across as a paranoid xenophobe.
it makes you look like an antique..
Let me see if I have this right....a paranoid xenophobe is one who believes that pedophilia is wrong, and a fanatic is someone who doesn't agree with your justification of it, and you're the practical, sensible one that believes that pedophilia is acceptable, if the older man is not a "bad influence", as defined by you, of course. Did I get that right?
