Justices are tasked with protecting the rights of everyone especially minorities such as GLBT Americans! We are provided equal protection under the same constitution as you are and simply because the majority of voters at any particular moment in time felt it was right to alter our state constitution to deny those protections doesn't make it okay! Since I was 18 I've voted in every major election and to this day I believe my vote has always counted!
Gays ARE protected, under the law, same as any other American. But they are not entitled to rewrite the dictionary, at our expense, simply in order to qualify for government benefits. This is not protection. And if you think that your vote counts for anything, guess again ...

LOL

That is not even a concern at this point. The ruling they will make is obvious.

The question it will it be the narrow ruling that only affects California, or the wide ruling that strikes down such measures in all states.

If you asked me 3 weeks ago I would have put money on the narrow ruling, but after the activities of the last couple of weeks, I would no longer make that bet.

Moreover, gay couples produce nothing, a clear genetic indication of defect, directly contrary to the primary goal of evolution.
Additionally, rights are distinguished in law. Gay couples fail to equate to marriage AT THE FUNDAMENTAL LEVEL OF NATURAL DESIGN AND PRIMARY FUNCTION.
Hey spacker, marriage isn't a natural thing. It is a construct of man. It also isn't the only building block of society.

What a mong.

LOL! A thing like you talking about natural design! You are totally screwed up. Two sets of DNA, two different types of tissue you are a failure AT THE FUNDAMENTAL LEVEL OF NATURAL DESIGN AND PRIMARY FUNCTION.

A thing like you is proof god does not exist.
