I know. He brings it up every few months and tries to act all indignant about something that happened almost 150yrs ago. Except he always ignores what has happened in that 150 yrs. It's like he left at intermission and doesn't know the whole story.

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!
Their function is to interpret law. A panel of judges, can, and often do offer opinions at odds with each other. In that case the majority rules. If a right, or rights, of any minority, are effected, so be it, but their primary task is to render an intepreted opinion.

No fault divorce has fatally fractured the family. Abortion has 'protected the mother' at the expense of her child. Just two examples.
Second, marriage is the ONLY natural building block of society. It is what separates us from the animal kingdom and indiscriminate procreation. Any other setting is a drastically negative default option. According to the latest, largest and most scientific study to date on seven family types, lesbian couples rate last, AFTER single parents!
Moreover, gay couples mutually procreate nothing, a clear genetic indication of defect, and directly contrary to the primary goal of evolution.
Finally, rights are protected by law, it has no power to create. Gay couples fail to equate to marriage AT THE FUNDAMENTAL LEVEL OF NATURAL DESIGN AND PRIMARY FUNCTION. Calling gay couples married is an imposition of an imposter relationship, hardly just or consistent.
"Second, marriage is the ONLY natural building block of society. It is what separates us from the animal kingdom and indiscriminate procreation."

Wrong... there are 11 species of animals which mate for life... which is basically what marriage is about. Funny how you bring nature into this since there are over 1500 species of animals that have homosexuals in them... which, while not common, makes homosexuality a natural phenomenon.

Moreover, gay couples mutually procreate nothing, a clear genetic indication of defect, and directly contrary to the primary goal of evolution."

Neither do post menopausal women, sterile people and people who have been "fixed"... yet they are allowed to marry....

Correct!

Alas that the court has become so political.

But I expect them to do the right thing regardless.

Yes, they did the right thing there, regardless of the political leaning, that was encouraging that they are less political than I fear they are.

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.

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.
