A federal judge in California has knocked down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, ruling Wednesday that the state's controversial Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

Wow, so it fell right after becoming a Christian nation

LOL

well there are different theories as to when the official fall was, but 85 years before the fall, yeah that could make the case as the cause if that is what you wanted to do.

More than accepting of homosexuals by this christian empire anyway

they all are...
Kimare is a genetic chimera who has a vagina, in addition to male genitalia, and an alleged inner lesbian trapped within his body. I'm the alleged inner lesbian and my sole purpose on Topix is to bust his balls. I know, you're thinking "how do I get an easy gig like that?"

If it's such a pain in the arse, why do heterosexual couples also do it?
It was a joke VV....lighten up. Opposite sex couples do it because I would assume they like it. Personally, it has no appeal.
And I'm not talking about homosexual and heterosexual intercourse being the same biologically. I'm talking about it being equal from a purely legal standpoint. In the eyes of the law, there is no difference. Neither are illegal. Both are legal. How much more equal can you get?
Simply because both are legal, that doesn't necessarily mean both are viewed the same way legally. One fulfills the meaning of consummation of the marital relationship of husband and wife the other does not. So I still say there is a legal distinction.

That is why I keep telling people they are standing on the wrong side of history.
50 or 100 years form today, everyone will be looking back at people and organizations that opposed the right thing to do, and not in a positive light.
Religion has been going slowly downhill since it became so political in the last 30 years, but this.... they will be looked on in the same light that we look back at slaveholders a hundred years ago.
I never hear of anyone that spits hate at those that were against the civil rights of Blacks. People are smart enough to realize that times change, most slave owners were not the evil beaters that hollywood makes them out to be. Most people realize religion never saved anyone, it's your relationship with God.

Ron is much deeper then you think. He loves his homosexual friends and even the blacks. How does what Ron say imply he is in a certain political party that you hate? You are just like he is.

right!!! in 1860,

the slave owners were like "yeah well give up those slaves"

the south tried to secede because they wanted to remain a slave using republic.

we fought a HUGE CIVIL war over slavery....

I am not the one spitting hate, I am warning you about how history, and of how your organizations will be looked upon in the future because of your obvious hatred and un-American values.

If I hated you, I wouldnít be warning you, I would just let you go down the toilet as you seem to insist on doing.

You are standing on the wrong side of history, and what you are doing and saying are going down in history books for future generations.

"How gay marriage has disappeared as a political issue"
a news headline today

Maybe that is because Republicans are aware that some of their relatives are finally "coming out of the closet".

Well, well, well.....
Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Stephen G. Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg pounded Cooper for linking marriage to child-bearing, with Kagan asking if states could also prohibit couples over age 55 from getting married. Cooper responded that even in that case, at least one member of the marriage would likely still be fertile, a suggestion that drew laughter from the courtroom.
I have been telling them the procreation argument is just a joke, I am glad the court made fun of that dead argument. I am a little surprised they brought it up, it was ripe to be trounced on. But I suppose they really donít have a lot to work with opposing the appeal.

The key will be Kennedy, who has supported gay rights in the past, particularly in Colorado

However I donít think it will be that close of a decision, I actually expect Roberts to join them, and possibly others.

What is sad is that they have no empathy for their fellow Americans, unless it happens within their own families.

I am not sure any of them actually have a degree in law ( LOL ), I donít and I could easily defeat that argument without even researching anything.
