Loving v Virginia is US Supreme Court precedence for male/female marriage. I doubt the court would have decided the same if the Lovings were a same sex couple.

If SCOTUS declines to hear the case then the Appellate court ruling stands, and same sex marriage, again, is legal in California.

That isn't an argument as equal rights to not always mean equal outcomes. And no matter how much you peddle your nonsense, currently all people are treated equally as each and every person can marry someone of the opposite sex.
Well, stupid, that's like saying everyone was treated equally under Jim Crow because everyone could sit in the section assigned to their race.

The "opposite sex" isn't the same for men and women, so they are not being treated equally.

Dummy, you can't even follow your own train of thought. You were talking about states' rights. Well, stupid, VA is a state. OK, it's a commonwealth, but the principle is the same. VA had laws that violated the 14th Amendment, so they were overturned by the Supreme Court.

If they were a same sex couple? If down were up, I wouldn't need a bra.

Out of staters such as yourself probably are not aware of it, but the free-spending out-of-control Homosexual and non-Homosexual California legislators are using hard earned taxpayer money to teach Homosexuality to innocent little non-Homosexual children who attend expensive taxpayer funded forced California Government schools.

Most Californians love their Homosexual friends and the lesbians. Because California politicians collect most of the hard earned taxpayer money used to teach Homosexuality to innocent little non-Homosexual children from the non-Homosexual community, the Homosexuality issue is no longer an issue only of concern to our Homosexual friends, the lesbians, and the Africans - including AIDS infected Haitian immigrants.

Marriage has already been defined.
It is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Gay couples are a obviously false imposter relationship.
It would be like trying to put a bent rod in a straight hole. Everyone can see it isn't the same.

"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."- Hernandez v Robles
Even the court told you that you are wrong, yet here you are.
Dummy, I didn't say Loving v VA had anything to do with gay marriage.

You call yourself a "monster mutation".
Should your rights depend on your genes?
Should you be allowed to marry twice because you have both sets?
Or should you not be allowed to marry at all because you have both sets?
LOLSER!

No Rose, it's nothing like Jim Crow Laws. Homosexuals are allowed to do everything a heterosexual can do. They can eat at the same tables, drink from the same fountains, they can even partake and marriage following the same laws as everyone else.

There is hardly a resemblance. Your reliance on relating everything to the plight of the African American simply shows the weakness of your argument. Time to turn in your race card Rose.

Unfortunately due to discriminatory laws and hateful bigotry Ronald is not allowed to marry his honey. So he doesn't have a wife. You must be mistaken, try the dog pound.
