your arc of disbeliefe is entertaining!!
so now the scotus is ANTI-constittuional??
because they didnt agree with you??
sour grapes rock..
weve ALL had to live through decisions from them that we disagree with.....like bush vs gore or citizens united....
they arnt the activist body they were back in the good ole days of loving and roe.
now they are more conservative and generally refer to the states...
that is fine...
30 states have already banned it.
that leaves 20 states that might not.
But, I notice that you neglected to address the post addressing the issue of Constitutional prevention of the FED, as per decreeing marriage laws? Was this an oversight on your part, or did you find it impossible to scoff at the idea that the SCOTUS has no power to make any kind of ruling outside of its jurisdiction?
Arc of disbelief? That's a knee-slapper. The SCOTUS will be acting in an unconstitutional manner if it attempts to enact any kind of national decision pertaining to marriage laws, yes. We have had to live through decisions from them that we have disagreed on, but decisions that they were empowered to make, not like now. 20 that are not on your "I love XXXXXXXXXXXXX" list, I might add. Only 9 states actually give you what you want, and that is a small percentage. "they arnt the activist body"? That's a riot, they are more activist now, than they ever were, when they were unbiased. Unaffected by blatant and shallow lobbying. Immune to the filthy infiltration of a minority of libertines, as they are now.

"we are slowly becoming a gulag"
really??
this is actually a pretty free country by most standards...
especially soviet standards(you cited a gulag)
what do you care what the rest of us think??
no one is trying to denounce you......
im just trying to get across, that you MIGHT be on the wrong side of history......
just like with roe, loving, brown ect ect...
all decisions that you social conservatives were AGAINST!!
Oh? What is my opinion on Roe V Wade? And Loving V Virginia? I don't care about what the rest of us think, I care about how we conduct our public selves. Think what you wish.

This SSM argument isn't about marriage, it's about government benefits. Admit that, and we have some common ground upon which to stand.

Thatís what all haters say when they are losing. Grow up, you big baby. Haters like you are a diminishing sort. Not everything that you donít like is a conspiracy. And, the only tyranny here is your obsessive and hysterical posts.

Don't use big words you don't understand Marram.

A "Scientific Theory" is a generally accepted explanation for an occurrence that is based on repeated testing. While it can be dis-proven with the addition of new evidence, your use of the word is incorrect.

Perhaps you should have used Hypothesis?

Itís about equality fool. You a-wipes are the ones who backed us into a corner. Now weíre fighting back and kicking your ---es and thereís nothing you can do to stop us but whine like a bunch of sniveling wimps. Donít like it, too bad mo-fo. The tide has turned and itís raining on you haters. Weíre smarter, better educated, organized and pissed off and we wonít stop until we have everything we want and maybe more. And all you can do is sit there and watch and run your toothless ignorant mouth. I suggest you got have another drink and beat your wife, maybe then youíll feel like a man.

"Haters"? Hmmmmm.....kind of proves Rock's point. Disagree with the leftist orthodoxy, their secular sacred cow, same sex marriage, and one is labeled a "hater".

Justice Sonia Sotomayor was questioning former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson, a pro-gay marriage Republican. She brought up a very interesting question during the exchange: If gay marriage is legal, what about polygamy?

Sotomayor asked, "If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what state restrictions could ever exist?" before referencing "polygamy and incest among adults," as reported by Matt Canham of the Salt Lake Tribune. The argument is an illustration of a broader issue about the culture of American society. To agree that gay marriage is indeed protected by the "equal protection" clause in the Constitution, wouldn't the same apply for all consenting adult relationships?

Justice Sonia Sotomayor's thought-provoking question was echoed by Bishop Harry Jackson, a minister at Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Md. He believes that "the real issue is the religious liberty issue and the issue of whether we can practice marriage as we believe it on an ongoing basis," and further stated that if same-sex marriage "is allowed to be mandated by fiat...then, right behind it, polygamy and many other forms of marriage will automatically sweep the land within just a matter of a few years." Advocates of legalizing gay marriage, as opposed to offering a compromise of "civil unions," which they argue is no different than "separate but equal" should consider this question.

check out the current issue of "time" magazine.

you know?? where they show pictures inside some white trash residence, with pictures of this tattoed red neck ACTUALLY beating his wife!!

a pile of pabst blue riboon in the corner..

Im looking forward to the tolerant future....

and a shortage of hater(as they die off)

and greater understanding of some of the things people need to learn more about before making rash judgements on.

it will be great!!

I'll take that to mean you know you don't have a good argument against gay marriage, and you are just bigoted against gay people. If you did have a good argument, you post it, after all, Bigfoot, I'm not the only one who can see your posts.

yet 58% of the population WANTS gay marraige.

it is time to wake up OLD man.
Did we vote or did the advocate do a poll? How old am I? are you? You are the idiot that says he has a slip disk at age 15 and has done nothing but smoke pot, hey fool pot won't cure a slip disk, I'm assuming you are 17 now? Because after 2 years if it's not better, you need surgery, or did u wait too long relying on pot to fix it? Now it's fuked for life. dumb you.

The justicesí voting
behavior is largely a product of their own ideological pref-
erences. Not the public opinion
