In the interest of expediency, instead of having him list EVERY one, why don't you list JUST ONE that DID advocate SSM ? It'll take less time
Because, stupid, Brian G made the claim that "no moral thinker in history ever advocated same-sex marriage.". It's up to him to back his up his claim. Duh.

You aren't even worth responding to.
1 You refuse to answer direct questions with anything other than deceit and spin.
Total BS.

Really? Post a link to a false report and bogus survey I sited. Or STFU after apologizing to me.

LOL! A total lie. I get you are a racist, and assume I'm on welfare because I'm black. But I have an advanced degree and I'm fully employed.

Yep. Just because you hold it sacred doesn't mean I do.

Looks like you are going to have to be doing a whole lot of apologizing to me.

You are a worthless, broken, drug addicted, welfare receiving, cranky old reprobate and a malodorous presence in here,
No, I'm not your wife.

and I, for one would rather ignore you, than bother responding to your strung-out rantings and ravings. I would enjoy it immensely if someone in here announced that you had died a horrible death, in flames and pain. If it came to pass that I saw you on fire, I wouldn't piss on you.
Typical fundie.

I don't want you to die. That would end your suffering.

Fundamentally, I believe that balance must be maintained, and that a SSM lacks the balance necessary in all things.
That's romantic babble. This is a legal issue.

Yeah, really.
It says "Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race", not "Marriage and procreation are rights". And they are wrong about marriage being fundamental to the very survival of the race.
That's funny, the SCOTUS is the Loving v Virginia decision didn't have the trouble connecting the dots you are having.

Or don't you like Loving V Virginia anymore?

"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival. Skinner v. Oklahoma, 316 U.S. 535, 541 (1942)."- Loving V Virginia

Really?
" We are dealing here with legislation which involves one of the basic civil rights of man. Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race."- Skinner V Oklahoma

It would be quite a story:"A chance meeting of two homophobes on a thread about same sex marriage ends up being a life change even for both fells"

I thought I was addressing you. I was fooled by the dastardly troll from L.A. much to my embarrassment.

Again, Skinner v OK was not a case about marriage. The use of the word was incidental. It was a case from the 40's...
The case was about using forced sterilization as a means of punishment. Marriage laws were not changed at all.

Anyway, WTF is your point? You don't have to be able to procreate in order to marry.

<quoted text> Proposition 8 is almost identical to Minnesota's law defining marriage as one man and one woman.
Judge Walker ignored the precedent of Baker v Nelson and excluded evidence showing the universal nature of male/female marriage.
No, it's not because there are 18,000 legally married Same-Sex Couples and those marriages remained valid, legal and recognized even after the passage of Prop 8.

Again, Baker vs Nelson was about getting a marriage license.......Perry vs Hollinsworth(Prop 8) is about a right that Same-Sex Couples had and was ELIMINATED by a vote........and the evidence you claimed was excluded, was more like NOT presented and totally irrelevant because it was about having something and then having it removed or taken away!!!

You are a f-ing idiot. There is a reason the SCOTUS referenced Skinner V Oklahoma.

I am sorry that you failed to learn critical thinking.

Yet another example as to why you are collecting that welfare check.

SQUAWK-- RACIST-- Beat ya to it, now how about you formulate an intelligent response.

Tell us how the SCOTUS was incorrect in Loving V Virginia when it referenced Oklahoma V Skinner as the source of marriage as a "right". Show us how much smarter than you are than a sitting Justice.

BTW, have you looked up stare decisis yet?
