Funny I just think couples, I donít bother with the hetro and homo prefixes.
I know a lot of nice couples, regardless of their orientation.
I know a lot of nice couples regardless of their orientation too.

But everyone is very aware of their orientation.

However, that is a diversion from the issue. If the only basis of marriage is friendship, government has no interest in providing protection or provisions for them. ESPECIALLY when it segregates every other type of friendship.

Smile.
actually, the state failed to show it had interest in not granting the same rights to homosexual coupls.

and the state was represented not by the state attorney, but instead by republicans and their attornies.

that decision has been upheld by every judge that has had the appeal presented to them by the republicans and their attornies.

You should have seen it, last night 01.08.2013 at a Glendora, California city council meeting - Ed Brubaker set the spirs deep into Gene Murabito and Douglas Tessitor's backsides.

Thats because they lie to much.

The bible doesn't need to say it. The prophecies were written for much beyond the times the bible was written. And the events of them exploding all over the world is good enough.
Tell us a biblical prophesy that has come true. Something specific. I can tell you there will be disease, wars and natural disasters in different places sometimes in the future.

Same sex marriage is apartheid marriage. Where husband/wife marriage is gender diverse now we have gender segregated marriage.
Once, marriage was always integrated and now we have gender disunion marriage.

You now have gender segregation, you're divorced.

A ball can be loosely refered to as a circle, very stupid. A curve can be 3 dimensional.
At one point, Satan takes Jesus to the top of a mountain, and shows him ALL of the kingdoms of earth. This would only be possible if the earth were flat. It's quite clear that the people who wrote the buy-bull believe the earth was flat, the heavens were solid, and the moon gave off its own light. Since even people as dumb as you know these things aren't the case, we can dismiss the buy-bull as god's inerrant word.

You didn't answer my questions.

1. What prevailing interest does the government have in granting rights and benefits to friendships?

2. On what basis does it limit those rights and benefits to only couples of any gender?

Members of minority groups are also part of WE THE PEOPLE. One reason we have judges is to protect them against the tyranny of the majority.

You are so stupid. You don't even know what the term "red herring" means! You think I'm talking about fish!
LOLSER!
And dummy, I didn't say it's not an equal right issue becuse it just isn't. I explained why it isn't. You are just too dumb to understand.
Equal means the same.
Everybody has the same rights when it comes to marring more than one person.
Again, fart breath, if you want to talk about polygamy, why don't you start a forum about the subject? Oh, yeah, because you don't give a damn about polygamy one way or another, you are just against gay marriage, but have no real argument against it. So, you bring up the red herring of polygamy.
BTW:
"A red herring is a figurative expression referring to a logical fallacy in which a clue or piece of information is or is intended to be misleading, or distracting from the actual question"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Herring
You are so stupid you don't know I'm making you look even more stupid!

TOO FUNNY!
