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
But that is nowhere to be found in Skinner v OK

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.

Seriously Rose, this response to Hudson proved everything he said about you. You wouldn't have been better off keeping your mouth shut. But then again you aren't intelligent enough to realize that.
LOL. You didn't even read my response, you just replied!
For one, Rock claimed I site false reports and bogus surveys. Tell us how my response proved I site false reports and bogus surveys.
Speaking of keeping your mouth shut, looks like you are going to have to!

There is no proof of life on another planet in the Universe. Doesn't mean it isn't there.

IF god existed, there would be evidence of his existence.
He's supposed to be all knowing, all powerful and involved in our lives.
It's quite possible there is life on another planet without our having any evidence of it.

<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?

Example?

Here is one- Calling everyone a racists without providing the same requirement of stating which race they hate that you require from someone calling you a racist.
This is also another example of what Hudson claimed in Item 1.

R Hudson wrote:
4 You are on welfare, thus presenting yourself as the lowest form of dirt in here.

You Wrote: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.

Proving my point. No one thinks you are on welfare because you are "black" Rose, in fact we don't even know for sure that you are- we claim you are on welfare because you are too ignorant to support yourself.

No need to go further, all of your other responses simply provided further examples of what was claimed in item 1.

Everyone pay attention here to Rose!!

Only in the fantasy world of Rose could anyone accept this response as logical.

Let's follow the nonsense of Rose.

Rose claims, it is quite possible there is life on another planet even though there is NO EVIDENCE OF IT!!

But, she also claims, that because there is NO EVIDENCE of god, then definitely god does not exist.

The court jester never lets us down!!

Straight up, Big D, no sarcasm.
My marriage was a declaration that I intended to take my wife and raise a family, according to old tradition and custom, going back thousands of years. This new redefinition allows a mockery of that declaration. It allows anyone with a desire to call another a "wife" or a "husband" to claim that title, in spite of the timeless nature of that cherished institution. Anyone can live together, that is a common type of relationship. A marriage is not. I feel that the ceremony is cheapened by lowering the bar.
Then every failed marriage, every divorce, every marriage of convenience, every instance of spousal abuse/homicide, etc. cheapen your marriage.
