Oh, thanks for explaining that to me, I thought that she asked a self-evident question pertaining to the validity of making any sort of legislation as per marriage. I feel so much better now, that you have tried to steer the question into your court, and decided, for her, what she meant.
Sit down, fruitcake, I know exactly what the question meant, and it was a simple, straightforward question, not a convoluted foray into "Let's help the gays" territory.
The question of state limitations on marriage was bound to be raised by someone. And Olson was prepared for whatever question was asked.

I think Sotomayor pitched it, knowing full well what the response would be.

That's my opinion. I'm entitled to it.

By the way, your temper is showing. Did you mean for that to happen or did it just slide out like a fart?

Wow who is this "Frankie Rizzo"...this guy's OBSESSED with gay marriage...someone get this guy a friend or a gf or something already...what a tool!!
Frankie isn't obsessed with gay marriage. Frankie is obsessed with Frankie. He loves seeing his words on the computer.

There's no telling how many hundreds (thousands) of times he's posted on this topic.

He must be some kind of a shut-in, in a wheelchair or something. He fires off comments like an assault weapon.

Unfortunately, he's lost all credibility here since he's started pushing for polygamy and incestuous marriages.

That's what bigots said about same sex marriage not too long ago. Those supporting it had no credibility. And look at you now! Being a bigot and a hypocrite yourself just like them!

We're real proud of you fruitloops.

There's several posts missing on this page. The former fry cook must have gotten in another rage.

Perhaps it was told to stop loitering around the Home Depot bathroom again.

Oh, hell. You tell that EXACT lie, every time you claim that "the majority" of us support this issue. I have repeatedly set you straight, but you refuse to acknowledge it.
that happens to be a fact that you are just ignorant of

You have not set me straight once, you have just explained that you are totally ignorant of the fact

we can argue opinions all day long, but I am not going to argue facts with you, you either know them or are ignorant of them

There is no "couple's right", it is legal fiction. Thanks for trying though.
I never said there was. I said that the legal protections of marriage are between two people. Ergo, same sex COUPLES, being two people, seeking to marry are seeking equal protection of the law; while poly-amorous GROUPS, being three or more, seek inherently greater protection.

It appears you have difficulty distinguishing between men and women, the function of the sexes as it relates to marriage, and why that relationship as a union of male and female is privileged by society.
Let me help you. Legally, there is no state interest in limiting marriage to opposite sex couples. The only possible argument that one could be hinting at in implying that there is such an interest is procreation, and it has already been demonstrated that there is no state interest in procreation relative to the legal protections of marriage. infertile heterosexual couples are regularly allowed to marry. Only a fool would think it is rational to imply that there is a state interest in procreation relative to the legal protections of marriage, applicable only to same sex couples, and solely to exclude them from equal protection of the law.

It seems you still have no valid argument.

well he lost most credibility then, he lost the rest of it when he started lying about what other people had said.

I do agree that he has zero credibility now.

If I was gay I would come FLAMING OUT! Just like you did Jizzy! Looks like fun, except the sex part.

How are you liking it? You sound mad most of the time. Maybe it's not agreeing with you.

YUK!YUK!YUK! Jizzy's obsessed sock puppet. Calls me gay as an insult. Makes threads about me. Boy am I in your head, Jiz. I should rent out space.

So, in your response to my comment you call me a "bigot" and a "fruitloop" (sic). Just because I have nothing better to do, I'm curious; how do you reconcile your supposed stance against bigotry while using a derogatory word to describe a gay person?

There are a LOT of fools here.

You are correct on every point, although I disagree that Poly is that big a step, I personally don’t think it will advance because it simply does not have broad public support as same sex marriage currently has.

In a decade or so, we may seem some actual movement on it... but that is just opinion.

However same sex marriage has board public support now, and broad bossiness support, they have the support, the legal teams, and the political clout to make this happen, and it is.

This is going very very well

I don’t expect some broad sweeping ruling from the supreme court, just another incremental step or two in the right direction.
