Some gay-rights foes claim they now are bullied

Jun 11, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Contra Costa Times

In this Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009 file picture, New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz, D-Bronx, right, speaks during a debate over same-sex marriage in the New York state Senate at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y. Diaz complained in May 2011 that he's received death threats because he opposes legislation to legalize same-sex marriage.

If you read on, you will see that tradition alone is no excuse for discrimination in the law. Judge Walker recognized tradition has been responsible for the denial of legal equality. The same argument was used to deny choice of a partner based on race.
Frank Turek promotes prejudice and discrimination based on his personal religious beliefs. He is not a judge and is not presenting a legal opinion, but a religious based prejudice. This is basically the same excuse used for decades to deny choice of a marriage partner based on race:
"Each has the right and the privilege of marrying within his or her own group." Perez v. Lippold
He also misrepresents the truth. Everyone in America does not currently have equal marriage rights. The legal marriages of gay people are not treated equally to the legal marriages of straight people by the federal government or in several states. This is clearly discrimination under the law, and is not allowed by the constitution. Four court decisions so far demonstrate marriage discrimination laws do in fact violate the constitutional requirement of equal protection found in the 14th amendment.
However, since your understanding is limited, you are not able to see that Walker undermines his claim that Prop 8 violates the 14th Amendment with his own statement. There is no discrimination. Walker attempted to codify desires into law. The requirements for marriage apply equally to all American citizens in every state. Why do so-called homosexuals believe they should not have to play by the same rules as everyone else?

The appellate court agrees with judge Walker, and further agrees he was not biased but ruled properly.

Prop 8 is unconstitutional.

If you read the transcripts, you will see your statement is taken out of context and supports the finding that tradition is not an acceptable governmental justification for discrimination in the law. Tradition was one of the unconvincing arguments used to deny inter-racial marriage.

Your continued assertion everyone has the same rights is easily shown to be false when you consider that the legal marriages of gay people are not treated equally to the legal marriages of straight people by the federal and some state governments. Denial of reality only changes reality for you, but not for the rest of us or in the law.

The appellate court agrees with the trial court finding. Prop 8 is unconstitutional because it denies equal treatment under the law.

Proposition 8 was always going to the Supreme Court regardless of which way the appeals court ruled. It will be up to the Supreme Court to decide if Proposition 8 is constitutional. I have confidence that they will do the right thing.

Zeldo claims to have a very large "drill." Maybe since Shang left and went back to China, you can take his place. Zeldo tricks over on Fowler and prefers clients from Lakeside Manor. If interested in a full position tranny hooker opportunity, contact zeldo.

Again, you miss the point. It was not my statement - it was Walker's statement, which supports the fact that Prop 8 could not and does not violate the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.
The fact that the requirements for marriage apply equally to all American citizens in every state is irrefutable. Your assertion that so-called homosexuals are not treated equally under the law is nothing more than a logical fallacy unsupported by the Constitution. Where in the Constitution are same sex attractions protected?

You continue to miss the point. That finding of fact does not support what you claim. It shows prejudice has been used to deny equality. Tradition is no excuse for harming others needlessly.

Your continued denial of reality only makes it true in your mind, not in the written law. If it were true the requirements of marriage apply equally to all, the marriages of gay people in Massachusetts and the other states that recognize marriage equality would be treated equally to the straight people who are married in those and other states. It would also be true gay people could marry in all states, not just some states, D.C., and several other countries.

Its the most famous club in the world! The gay club. Requirements... decide that you are gay and you are a member! Hooray for the most famous club in the world!!! You can't be born into it, you must choose if you want to be a member. I choose to be in the realm of reality. Heterosexuality. Its natural. Its beautiful. And you don't need to be a sodomite to be a hetero. Its awesome! Good luck with going against the grain and living an abnormal existence in a normal society. Its amazing that less than 1% of the population that are in this club can seem like 50% of the population with the help of the media. We know the truth. Heck we live in truth! The moral majority will quell this uprising once we get a good person in the White House. Its just a matter of time. Enjoy your fantasy while it lasts club members!!!
