There is a dispute, and it figured in the Proposition 8 case, over the current meaning and impact of a decision the Supreme Court made in 1972, in the case of Baker v. Nelson. There, without briefing and hearing, the Supreme Court dismissed an appeal by a Minnesota gay couple. The Minnesota Supreme Court had rejected their claim that denial of a marriage license for them violated their rights under the Fourteenth Amendment. That “summary dismissal” is a binding precedent, just as a full-scale decision would be, if a later case is found to be a close or exact parallel to the Baker lawsuit.

No matter how long this SSM issue goes on, gays will always be second class and looked at as an odd cult. If this issue was something to be concerned abour the Feds would have resolved it long ago. California is not as easy of push over as other states however Californea is in a worse financial mess than other states and therefore must make the best logical coice for the people. If the wrong choice is made in favor of the gay cults it may cauase problems for them down the road . . .

Like I said, you don't like the decision anymore.
It's OK Rose. You will get over it.
Liar. I love the decision. I'm glad interracial marriage isn't illegal.

You don't have any real arguments, so you lie about my positions.

The 14th Amendment grants all US citizens equal protection, so denying all US citizens equal protection violates the 14th Amendment.

Well, let's try this ....
Although the evidence on child outcomes is sketchy, the evidence does suggest that children raised by lesbians or gay men are more likely to experience gender and sexual disorders. Judith Stacey—an advocate for SSM and a sociologist—reviewed the literature on child outcomes and found the following:“lesbian parenting may free daughters and sons from a broad but uneven range of traditional gender prescriptions.” Her conclusion here is based on studies that show that sons of lesbians are less masculine and that daughters of lesbians are more masculine. She also found that a “significantly greater proportion of young adult children raised by lesbian mothers than those raised by heterosexual mothers… reported having a homoerotic relationship.” Stacey also observes that children of lesbians are more likely to report homoerotic attractions. Her review must be view judiciously, given the methodological flaws detailed by Professor Nock in the literature as a whole. Nevertheless, theses studies give some credence to conservative concerns about the effects of SS couple parenting.

Rose's Law:
Morons with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?"

Your copy/paste babble doesn't show anything wrong with homosexuality. There is nothing wrong with having a homoerotic relationship or attraction.

Oh, BTW, I love to watch 2 women having it off, who wouldn't want to be with a woman ? It is having to watch men prance around like they can be mistaken for women that makes me want to vomit.....Please, be clear on the matter.
You homophobes act as if you can't step outside without running into a gay pride parade. If you don't like them, quit finding out when they are going to be, and stop traveling to go see them. Problem solved.

That's nice.
But that doesn't change the fact that HIV and AIDS are often used interchangeably, even though it's not technically correct. And it made sense to do in a post that said, "Anal sex causes HIV".
