<quoted text>The job was left to the state because the SCOTUS had ruled in 1883 in Pace v Alabama that such restrictions don't violate equal protection.
<quoted text>The actual fact is that The Racial Integrity Act of 1924 prohibited Whites from marrying all those who were classified as non-White and vice versa, not just Blacks, but Native Americans and those of Asian descent as well.
<quoted text>It took 84 years to get the Supremes to overturn the 'humiliation' that was Pace v Alabama sweetie, it won't take us nearly as long to overturn Baker, in fact, the very basis for the Minnesota Supreme Court ruling no longer holds true as there are now states which recognize the right of same sex marriage. Its value as precedent is done and the next time it is dragged before the Court it will be for its last rites.
get real; homosexuals not only have no leader whatsoever, you're not even allowed to appear in your tv ads.

Produce a single tv ad that lets a homosexual appear.

You're just a stepping-stone. Who will be the "new gay," Ricky? You don't care. So why should anyone care about your little issue that the Supreme Court doesn't seem to care about at all?

Two Supreme Court Justices have already said they will vote against you.

Doesn't look good for you, not in your lifetime.

Look at it from his point of view. He is one of the taxpayer supported 47 percenters. Because of his expensive taxpayer funded Government "education" he is unable to form coherent sentences, much less being capable of combining sentences in order to express cogent ideas. He must do something to keep busy until he receives his taxpayer funded Government check. He has achieved his goal in life - being a nuisance, and spending his time ensuring that serious discussion of important issues of the day is impeded. Politically, he aligns himself with those who believe Big Bird is the defining issue of the day.

the logic behind this--which two US Supreme Court Justices have said is an easy "Negative"--is mind-boggling

per homosexuals, 10% of the Moslem world is homosexual but is beaten down

why the heck aren't Rick and the two Roses on camels and perhaps accidentally (hopefully) triggering nuclear explosions in the Middle East as freedom fighters?

God never said Adam and Eve. The tale is he created them. Unfortunately all you've done is show your ignorance as a few religions are coming around, finally, to evolution.

Adam and Eve is a story concocted to explain the origins of man a looooong loooooong time ago before anyone knew didly about squat. Now we have science and understand a lot of things better than we did a few thousand years ago when that was written. Besides, it is old testament, view it as metaphor, not actual history.

Guess the republicans are really old school and want to fall back into more backwards times of pay offs and bribes?

That's easy .. The right to be recognized and have SSM, the right to teach homosexuality in "Public" schools, the right to marry someone who is HIV/AIDS infected so they can get government assistanace for the entire household, I can go on and on.
Anybody would be able to marry someone of the same sex, so it's not a special right. How can you "teach homosexuality"? It just is. And anybody can marry someone who has a disease so they can get on government assistance.
You can go on and on, but I'm looking for a special right gay people are asking for.

Lets just face the facts, the reason for all of this attention is because the gays feel segragated from the rest of society, so they have to stomp their feet and yell. The fact is that we don't care and you will have to settle for second class people, just like the Feds refer to you as, deal lwith it and m ove on with you odd lifestyle, start a commune some where in t he vast desert
Why did you search the internet for a place to talk about gay people if you don't care?

Why do fundies think using the caps lock key makes up for their inability to reason?
Don't vote.
But the Constitution promises all people equal protection, even when that's not popular with knuckle draggers like you.

Eve was made from Adam's rib. Eve would have had the same DNA Adam did. Eve would have been a man.
Looks like god made Adam and Steve after all.

See how you are? I have explained those things to you many times. It's as though you wake up everyday with a totally blank mind.
