Didn't we have this conversation already???
Snicker.
Nope one reversal, and a majority of justices that have reviewed the case ( that donít happen to be gay by the way ) have agreed.

9 more justices are about to weigh in.

The problem is that the supporters of Prop 8 keep appealing higher even though they have lost every time to date

Yes, put to the people, shot down, and overturned, again. There is no "large support" of the people, this is a demonstrable lie. The minority that had defied the will of the people will, again, do the same.
then yopu wont have to worry that it will go straight back on the ballot to overturn prop 8 if the Supreme court doesnt do the right thing and kill it :)

Cause that is exactly what will happen.

An the polls already show prop 8 would be stuck down easily if the vote were to happen now. I think you are watching Faux news

Agreed H&M. It does make for an interesting psychological study. If a woman is sexually attracted to another woman, why would she choose a very masculine woman? No disrespect intended, just puzzled. The plumbing has got to be the primary reason. Yes?
Oy... Another armchair psychologist...

Why does a person's attractions to another person vex you so much? Why do you believe it's any of your business?

If a woman is attracted to a woman or a man is attracted to a man, it in no way impacts their ability to live a full, healthy, productive life.

My attraction to men has never gotten in the way of my going to work and doing my job. It didn't impact my ability to get my education. I can take care of myself--even take care of others.

Once I recognized that I could not change my attractions--once I just accepted the way God had made me--I settled into life just fine.

But for some reason you feel the need to ponder why it is that some lesbians (not all) enjoy being with "butch" women.

Basically, it's a question that doesn't deserve an answer. You might as well ask, "Why is grass green?" or "Why is water clear?" The answer--who cares?

They sure did, that was fun, they even had the conservative justices chuckling at the argument.

That argument has been shot to pieces in 3 successively higher courts now... it is funny how desperately they still hang onto it.

I suppose they dont have anything else left to hang onto, like the last rats on a sinking ship

Once again, they politely laughed at the lame joke about older people procreating. They did not snicker or laugh AT other Americans.

Thankfully, our courts and judges are not as immature, vindictive and mean spirited as you are.

Thank you for sharing that thought, no matter how mean spirited, devisive and idiotic. It is also of course another Big D lie, a nice added touch!

Remember! There are no dumb posts. Only stupid, vindictive and condescending jerk posters!

P.S. You're lying again.

Are you going to try and argue that someone claimed procreation is a requirement of marriage all day today again, when no one has ever said that?

You know, are you going to lie again all day today, "Liar Big D"?

YUK!YUK!YUK! Big D lies like a rug!

All that, most of irrelevant, to the simple questioned I posed? Oh Madone! Why not just offer an opinion as to why, instead all that "....impacting...producti ve lives..." stuff?
