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.

How about one's OWN mother and father if at all possible? Why not one dad and two moms? What about a dad and grand dad? There are numerous possibilities.
Gee, did you miss some of my exchange with K Mart? I covered this already and he back pedalled after making a fool of himself. Claimed he knew what was going on.

Why limit it to "couples"? Suppose two siblings wanted such an arrangement? Why should they be denied the "stroke of a pen"?
Is this back to the incest argument? I've already made myself clear on it. Do keep up.

Unless I'm mistaken, the argument most often thrown around here is that heterosexual couples should have access to the benefits and protections of marriage PRIMARILY because they may have children.
The last part of my post was an attempt to show that there are a significant number of same-gender couples who have children. Shouldn't these be afforded the same protections and benefits under the law as opposite-gender couples who are married?
If you don't want to include children in the equation, then the fact that two, consenting, unrelated, adults who wish to partner their lives under the eyes of the government by way of marriage, should be a sufficient argument for same-gender marriage.
Don't try to throw in the ringer of plural marriage and incestuous marriages. They have already been found to be unlawful.
Same-gender marriage HAS NOTHING TO DO with incest or bigamy.
We are ONLY talking about same-gender, unrelated, consenting, adult couples.
So that's it? Too bad for them but polygamy "has been found to be unlawful."?

Not so fast slick! That was the same thing that was said about same sex marriage just a few short years ago. It wasn't a valid reason to deny SSM, it's not a valid reason to deny poly marriage.

Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage.

This is about gay marriage not bisexual marriage. One thing at a time.
So when does lesbian marriage come up?

So you want to start a contest of horror parent/gay stories?
Please, how does that justify equating a duplicated redumbant half parents to biological parents?
This is your shift from gay troll twirl ad homoan attacks?
Smile.
No, just killing the myth that the biological parents are always the best choice. Face it, life is hard enough without having screwed up parents. Why not take the best that are actually available? If it happens to be a same sex couple who gives a shit as long as they provide a stable loving home and don't abuse the kids?

Speaking of twirl, that neatly sums up all of your posts with your made up terms, "redumbdant" and "ad homoan." Have you got any idea just how stupid you come across with your made up terms and your inability to distinguish your opinion from fact? That and your fake persona (the whole lesbian in a man's body) lead me to believe you're about 14 years old. But it is your creation and you're stuck with it. Maybe your next ID will be the product of a little thought.

I comprehend fine, others do too. You attempt to change his argument that procreation is closely related to marriage into that it's a requirement for marriage. That's not what anyone has said and you know it. You're dishonest.
Exactly paisan! He pulls that all the time.

Here's a solution to that... Right before one of you dies, sign over all interest to the survivor. That way, you won't have to pay inheritance tax.

we're not a legally recognized couple by the government. banks, lending institutions, credit card companies, insurance companies, and so forth have no problems issuing credit or mortgages to us with both our names on the documentation.

and yes, you're right - legal recognition does indeed matter.

gee, maybe you are starting to understand a little bit. that's great!

Funny thing, this particular string was originally started because someone was calling KiMare "KMart"" LOL
Your description sounds a lot like mine...'cept my hair was auburn in its heyday...And I'm rather partial to long sleeve button downs, myself...Sporting some ink, too. Most notably, the large pentagram across both shoulder-blades...
:-D
I do believe I was the one that started calling him K Mart. Loads of my friends have ink. I've considered it myself - a tribute to my stepson would be all I'd go for. He was quite talented and did a number of drawings suitable for tattoos. Just haven't figured out which one or where I'd put it.

BTW, I saved the best celebrity look alike for last. Since I've greyed out I've been told I look like someone quite famous. The best occurence was when I entered a restaurant I frequent. There's a musician who plays there Friday nights and he was in the middle of a tune, I think it was To All The Girls I've Loved Before. Missus Sheesh and I were talking to the hostess and I noticed that a lot of people were staring at me, smiling. Subsequently I went to a Halloween party at a local dive. I was surprised at how many people didn't know who Willie Nelson was. Pretty much all I had to do was get my wife to put two braids in my hair too. Thankfully my skin doesn't look like I was riding around in a limo standing up in the moon roof during a hail storm.

<quoted text>Its your body? Its not your heart that your stopping! You make the decision of having sex without protection you should take the responsibility the right way. The only time I think abortion should be necessary is in cases of rape or incest. You, no, you just bang people care free without even having the decency of making sure its wrapped because there are plan b alternatives. " Oh no don't worry you don't have to wear a condom, ill just get an abortion if I'm pregnant" right? Is that where your mind is set!?
Does this apply to rape victims?

<quoted text>A will supersedes marriage; don't rewrite marriage laws because your partner doesn't want to include you in his will. If he didn't write you to make medical decisions in a living will, maybe he doesn't trust your judgement.
Marriage would resort in more challenged wills and disputed living wills; that's how same sex marriage harms gays.
You really don't know how the legal system works in this country do you? Wills get contested all the time. Living wills are open to contest as well. Courts operate on their own time frame and death operates on its own schedule regardless of court decisions.

How will marriage resort to more challenged wills and disputed living wills? You make this type of claim frequently and don't give a bit of supporting evidence. Soooo, if you can, provide proof for your claim.

it is mine, just as your wife has a right to ownership of the property you both worked to pay for and maintain.

and as for the legal recognition....that's changing buddy. and that is rightly so.
