A far thinking Republican who cast the deciding vote to legalize gay marriage in New York state has lost his re-election bid in 2012.

We thank him for what he did.

Stupid, segregation during the 60's was imposed.
People are still free to have racially "segregated" marriages.
People in the states that recognize gay marriages are free to marry someone of the opposite sex.
You have no point.

Down with gender segregation marriage; keep marriage gender diverse. You should have learned in the 60's, segregation isn't the answer.
You come up with some of the most incredibly dumb bumper sticker style posts. Segregation was the forcible separation of blacks and whites at the expense of blacks. Same sex marriage ALLOWS same sex couples to enter into marriages. They've been kept from them up to now.

This is the simple fact:
Skinner v OK was not a case about marriage.
Why don't you look up the case? Since it's clear you haven't.
"Skinner v. State of Oklahoma, ex. rel. Williamson, 316 U.S. 535 (1942),[1] was the United States Supreme Court ruling which held that compulsory sterilization could not be imposed as a punishment for a crime..."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skinner_v._Oklah...
"This case touches a sensitive and important area of human rights. Oklahoma deprives certain individuals of a right which is basic to the perpetuation of a race -- the right to have offspring. "
http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials...
Skinner v OK didn't change marriage laws at all.
I guess reading the actual opinion of the court is too confusing for you so you need the cliff notes version on wiki.

Rose, if you don't know wtf you are talking about how do you expect anyone else to?
Like I said, call the court and tell them they screwed up and shouldn't have used Skinner v Oklahoma as precedent when calling marriage a "right" because Skinner v Oklahoma has nothing to do with marriage..
You are such an idiot.

LOL @ you.
I guess you can't answer simple questions. What the matter, hasn't you blog given you the correct response yet? We all know you are incapable of drafting your own thoughts.

Answer the question Rose, where is the check on the court?
I know you are dodging because you simply don't know. Why don't you just admit that and I could explain to you.

Skinner v Oklahoma wasn't a case about marriage, it was a case about using forced sterilization as a means of punishment.
Why don't you look up the case and read about it if you don't trust me? Can you tell us how marriage laws were changed by Skinner v OK? Wait, they weren't.

You might think that you are slick with that, but I do not dance, sir. I get to the point, in spite of any ignorance of the part of the libertines. 2 men or 2 women constitute a mismatched pairing. Not the point of marriage. Marriage is an institution for procreating couples to use in order to establish a continuity of inheritance and unity, closed to any outside interloping or interference.
But, bigfoot, sterile people can marry, so you are wrong!

Marriage is now being assailed, by the gays, in order to lay claim to a validity that does not have any historical recognition,
Appealing to tradition is a logical fallacy.

You really are an idiot aren't you.

Where does the precedent for marriage as a "right" come from?

Simple question Rose, well, it won't be for you.
