The objection is that five individuals, in eccense over turned not only the votes, twice, of millions of Californians, but created a new definition of a significant social institution.
they turned over the votes that were unconstitutional, as is their job.

no, that definition was already there, they just stopped all those californians from breaking their own constitution...

I don't believe you. You are lying. You don't really support a man marrying his adult daughter. Or Mormon Joe marrying three hot 18 year old brides. Do you now Tick? Convince me. I think you are lying to avoid revealing your hypocrisy.
Get on it! Hup Hup! I want to hear your enthusiastic support. No lukewarm nonsense.
another clear example of your hypocrisy, francis. i already answered this question honestly. now when i ask you to prove your stance by saying you think same sex couple marriage is equal to opposite couple marriage you run away and claim you don't have to prove anything..

you are the perfect hypocrite and you keep proving it day after day.

You should be embarrassed, if not arrested for what you showed.
your sex life must be incredibly boring... but then it probably mostly consists of you wanking off to little boy porn...

Some evidence on the anthropological point:“Although the details of getting married – who chooses the mates, what are the ceremonies and exchanges, how old are the parties – vary from group to group, the principle of marriage is everywhere embodied in practice.... The unique trait of what is commonly called marriage is social recognition and approval ... of a couple’s engaging in sexual intercourse and bearing and rearing offspring.” Kingsley Davis (ed.), Contemporary Marriage: Comparative Perspectives on a Changing Institution (New York: Russell Sage Foundation)(1985).

"Marriage is a universal social institution, albeit with myriad variations in social and cultural details. A review of the cross-cultural diversity in marital arrangements reveals certain common themes: some degree of mutual obligation between husband and wife, a right of sexual access (often but not necessarily exclusive), an expectation that the relationships will persist (although not necessarily for a lifetime), some cooperative investment in offspring, and some sort of recognition of the status of the couple’s children. The marital alliance is fundamentally a reproductive alliance." Margo Wilson & Martin Daly, Marital Cooperation and Conflict, in Evolutionary Psychology, Public Policy and Personal Decisions 197, 203 (Charles Crawford & Catherine Salmon eds., Lawrence Erlbaum Assoc. 2004)

Yeah it was, now you are back peddling because I schooled your ass.

Moreover, I validated the dwindling marriage rates. Europe is in jeopardy right now.

As to facts, my side is the only one dealing with them on here.

I have hundreds. You have none. So far the score is me one, you zero. Catch up. Cite some sociologists who argue children have nothing to do with marriage.

It is true that having children is not and should not be a requirement for marriage. It is also true that they are one of the main reasons for marriage. But go ahead and try to argue otherwise. Fun!

Both Jeff Kugel and Chris Jeffers are allowed free seats to roaster in hell.

Who are these two candidates for this prestigious honor?

They are Chris Jeffers and Jeff Kugel two long time associates from another city they destroyed together.

Neither care about the residents, just the end results. If that be the case then Glendora, California and any other city that had employed them got the dirty end of the stick.

Neither one of them is a exemplary employee, just average Ho Hum. get along a 9 to 5 err.

Works just hard enough for their own paycheck and that's it.

So their best attribute is steam rolling over long time resident's to finish a project.

Like Park & Rides which are sure fire attractions for Glendora, California.

Come one, come all, plenty of empty wide open spaces between the ears of the current city council members.

And yeah brainiac...it's legal.
I think it's your logic in failing to identify existing situations that might make you think about going back to the thinking room to see if you forgot and left your IQ laying on the floor somewhere.
You don't even know what the argument is dummy. Too funny!
