It would be if what you claim is true, but since it is a lie you make your own rules.

You are such a joke! Again, dummy, it was a copy/paste mistake, basically a typo. I admitted my mistake, but you are going on and on like you are "Monk" or something, and this is some federal case.
I understand you don't want people to think you are as stupid as R Hudson. No need to worry, again, I admitted the mistake. Get over yourself.
You are full of sh%%.

Rose tactic #1- Act stupid-(not so sure it is an act)
Rose Tactic #2- Misdirect
Rose Tactic #3- Make stupid comments until opposition is tired of replying then claim victory
Rose Tactic #4- Attack the poster- scream Racist, Bigot, Homophobe
Rose Tactic #5- Act intelligent by making silly statistical references such as- Most people who have anal sex are straight-
Rose Tactic #6- Falsely accuse others of lies- when proven wrong through links to previous posts revert back to tactics 2 and 4.

How so? Look at Loving v VA
Next.
Ok, let's take a look at Loving v Virginia, since you have never read it this might be news to you...
" The clear and central purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment was to eliminate all official state sources of invidious racial discrimination in the States. "- Loving V Virginia
Homosexuality isn't a "race" Rose.
" The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discriminations. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual, and cannot be infringed by the State."- Loving V Virginia
Again Rose, homosexuality is not a "Race".. No matter how much you want to cite Loving v Virginia, it has nothing to do with same sex marriage.
The SCOTUS affirmed this by not overturning Hernandez V Robles:
"Plaintiffs' reliance on Loving v Virginia (388 US 1 [1967]) for the proposition that the US Supreme Court has established a fundamental "right to marry the spouse of one's choice" outside the male/female construct is misplaced. In Loving, an interracial couple argued that Virginia's antimiscegenation statute, which precluded "any white person in this State to marry any save a white person, or a person with no other admixture of{**7 NY3d at 371} blood than white and American Indian" (id. at 5 n 4), violated the federal Due Process and Equal Protection clauses. The statute made intermarriage in violation of its terms a felony carrying a potential jail sentence of one to five years. The Lovings—a white man and a black woman—had married in violation of the law and been convicted, prompting them to challenge the validity of the Virginia law.
The Supreme Court struck the statute on both equal protection and due process grounds, but the focus of the analysis was on the Equal Protection Clause. Noting that "[t]he clear and central purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment was to eliminate all official state sources of invidious racial discrimination in the States," the Court applied strict scrutiny review to the racial classification, finding "no legitimate overriding purpose independent of invidious racial discrimination which justifies this classification" (id. at 10, 11). It made clear "that restricting the freedom to marry solely because of racial classifications violates the central meaning of the [*12]Equal Protection Clause" (id. at 12). There is no question that the Court viewed this antimiscegenation statute as an affront to the very purpose for the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment—to combat invidious racial discrimination.
In its brief due process analysis, the Supreme Court reiterated that marriage is a right "fundamental to our very existence and survival" (id., citing Skinner, 316 US at 541)—a clear reference to the link between marriage and procreation."..."Pla intiffs cite Loving for the proposition that a statute can discriminate even if it treats both classes identically. This misconstrues the Loving analysis because the antimiscegenation statute did not treat blacks and whites identically—it restricted who whites could marry (but did not restrict intermarriage between non-whites) for the purpose of promoting white supremacy. Virginia's antimiscegenation statute was the quintessential example of invidious racial discrimination as it was intended to advantage one race and disadvantage all others, which is why the Supreme Court applied strict scrutiny and struck it down as violating the core interest of the Equal Protection Clause.
In contrast, neither men nor women are disproportionately disadvantaged or burdened by the fact that New York's Domestic Relations Law allows only opposite-sex couples to marry—both genders are treated precisely the same way. As such, there is no gender [*16]classification triggering intermediate scrutiny. "

Now watch everyone as the puppet dances, acting as if she understands law more than the courts.

He's not gay?'Cause it sure looks like the two of you are in the courtin' phase of an online bromance. But, of course (Real) Rock Hudson wasn't "gay" either... after all he got married to an actually WOMAN once...and what more proof of studly heterosexuality does anyone need?

But the truth is that I actually don't give a crap if you (Faux) Rock (Real) Rock, or anyone else for that matter, is (or isn't) gay. And I apologize for calling you (Faux) Rock's boytoy...I should have considered how clueless you both are and just called you his little bitch.

BTW, the way you always jump right in there to defend (Faux)Rock's "honor" is just adorable! Oh! The joy of new found love!

You're psycho. And boring.
And yet YOU have posted over 100 response to my comments... WTF does that make YOU? I a mean aside from a jobless, friendless, clueless TOPIX troll.

I have to go... but GOOD LUCK coming to terms with your sexuality identity no matter what you decide, but for fucks sake don't go off and marry some unsuspecting woman and then ruin her life by sneaking around with (Faux) Rock or some other creep you meet on the internet.

If "Professor Marvel" were still allowed to post on TOPIX I am sure he would tell you that no good ever comes from sexual deceit...and probably also hit on you for a (down low) blow job...

Good luck and remember until you are married use a condom EVERY TIME you have sex. As "Def Dames Dope" always said..." Don't be silly, put a condom on your willy!"

So... it's your OPINION that your long winded rant warranted repetition. I disagree.

And your post was just another repeat of the same same old tired OPINIONS you have been hawking. No more valid this time that there were the other times you bought them up.

1.You are a (brilliant) constitutional scholar and anyone who disagrees with your bullying is a moron.

2..."Loving V Virginia
Homosexuality isn't a "race" yak yak yak....

As for an "adult conversation". That can't happen as long as you continue to be a smarmy name calling asshole.

Bader Ginsburg is 79 years old, Kennedy and Scalia are both 77. So here's hoping that Obama will get to choose the next two (or three) new justices. Assuring that the Constitution will once again be interpreted as a fluid document by a MAJORITY of the court. nations values. After all, THAT is what the founding fathers intended.
