So, you scream- equal rights- and think you have presented a debate?<quoted text>
I told you to take notes.
Here it is AGAIN:
And, AGAIN, I predict you won't debate, you'll just call me names.
If only I were this good at predicting the lottery numbers!:)
There is no debate, in order for there to be an equal rights issue the two issues in question must be equal, in the instance of same sex marriage- as with incest, polygamy etc.- the parties in question are inherently unequal.
But, I guess we will have to wait and see what the SCOTUS has to say. But my guess is you aren't going to be happy with the decision as a number of the justices have already openly stated that there is no Constitutional Right to marriage. Also there would be no reason for the SCOTUS to take on the Prop 8 case if they were happy with the decision.
But it would be interesting if on one hand they uphold the DOMA decision which was based solely on the premise that the Federal Government lacks the Constitutionally enumerated power to define marriage, but then uphold the prop 8 case thus contradicting itself by federally defining marriage.
Good times coming Rose.
