That's like saying everyone was treated equally under Jim Crow because everybody could sit in the section assigned to their race.
Sorry, LOLSER, the "opposite sex" is not the same for men and women, so men and women are not being treated equally.
<quoted text>
They are wrong. And I've shown that.
<quoted text>
And by restricting who whites could marry, it restricted who non whites could marry, because some non whites couldn't marry whites.

Men are allowed to marry women, but women aren't.
Women are allowed to marry men, but men aren't.
Men tend to make more money, so men are disadvantaged when it comes to choosing who to marry.
Go argue with the court Rose, that's what they said, and the SCOTUS had NO problem with it.

Stupid, Skinner v OK was not a case about marriage, but about using forced sterilization as punishment for crime. Marriage and procreation were legally tied together back then, as it was against the law to have sex if you weren't married.
But you don't have to be able to procreate in order to marry, you don't now, and you didn't then.
Loving v VA was a case about marriage.
What case did Loving v Virginia cite when they stated marriage was a "right?"

They didn't make it up themselves, they copied it from somewhere. I'll give you a hint, it starts with Skinner and ends with Oklahoma.

<quoted text>Is polygamy already illegal? Why yes it is.
Why would a law then be crafted, to outlaw something that's already illegal?
Please, try to explain how sodomy laws were repealed, then ?

<quoted text>
Of course there is more than just the inherent harm, unhealthiness and degradation of anal sex. I summarize much of that diverse distinction in this;
If you
believe denying marriage to a relationship
will prevent love
If you
demand any committed relationship
has to be called marriage
If you
claim rights and benefits can only be acquired
by an imposition on marriage
If you
equate the diversity of two genders
with the redundancy of same genders
If you
desecrate the sacred tradition of all major religions
and violate the historic practice of every single culture in history
If you
believe a fundamental change to the building block of society
will have absolutely no affect
If you
think a law can change
the reality of crucial distinctions in relationships
If you
pretend duplicating sexuality
is the same as blending masculinity and femininity
If you
condemn some children to parents of only one gender
and deliberately deny some children one natural parent
If you
ignore the design of sexual union
to manipulate a harmful act
If you
violate evolution's law of reproduction
to equate a genetic dead end
If you
risk the healthiest human relationship
to include one of the unhealthiest
If you
parallel the sole birthplace of every other relationship
with one that can reproduce none
If you
dilute all these things
down to just 'a committed relationship of two people'
Then, and only then, can you equate same-sex unions with marriage.
Smile.
You left one off of your diatribe, K-Mart...

If you repeat stupid your stupid bumper sticker crap often enough the whole world will come to realise you're full of shxt.

It is quite clear by now, you need a massive enema.

Smirk!

YUK!YUK!YUK! Giggling Joe Biden!
Ol' Joe did his part, last year, when they wanted to secretly institute "Operation Amnesty". Remember the hoohah about his words "...in chains..." to the crowd, about the Wall Street solutions ? How the blacks were calling for his blood, and even Hillary was calling for his head ? "He must not run again for VP" and "He must resign right now" ? That was when "Op Amn" was being secretly enacted. All across this country, there were 5-digit amounts of illegal immigrants, in every major city, signing up for "Op Amn", while the rest of us were oblivious to it. They knew about it, alright, but not a one of us heard about it, until it was over with. He towed the party line, and acted as scapegoat, and 3 weeks later, no-one even remembered it. Then, he was re-running for VP as if none of that baloney ever even happened. How did they all know what day to go into the big cities and claim "illegal immigrant" status ? That's Giggling Joe. I'm sorry, did I say "illegal immigrant" ? I should have said "a displaced foreign traveler", or "indigent tuberculosis carrier", or, perhaps, instead, the sooner liberals realize that illegal means, well, illegal, the whole amnesty situation would be easier to address. Unfortunately, liberals aren’t planning to make that realization anytime soon. There's a comittee, looking to “inform and sensitize” the media about how “offensive” the term “illegal immigrant” is to Latinos…and liberals. That’s right, we’ve now entered such a politically correct world where we shouldn’t call something what it actually is. Much like the current agenda to call SSM a "real" marriage. It seems that we having to accept things that we do not want. But, anyway, That's your "Giggling Joe Biden"...
Food for thought...

<quoted text>Why yes I did, that is why I posted the Supremes thoughts.
The voter initiative was clearly tailored to exclude gay couples. Given that Polygamy has not been legal for more than a century, and the laws regarding it are intact. Little can be said to change it. Again, Same sex marriage was legal, Prop 8 was designed to remove that law. Can you say discrimination?
Why, yes, we can. Discrimination against less-well-funded groups. Thank you, for your acknowledgement of this little detail.

<quoted text>Lets support TRUE marriage equality, Frank. Other countries that support polygamy allow teenagers to be married. So Frank why don't you support 12,13,14 year old kids being married???? Come on Frank In Saudi Arabia, polygamy is legal, and no age restrictions. What could possibly be of harm to society???
Are you offering your daughter up ? What did she do wrong ? Did you tire of her ?
