Did it ever occur to you that it is just morally wrong? Not just from a religous point of view but the overall perspective!

Congress made a law denying some Christians and and Muslims marriage according to their beliefs.

don't think Tommy is real high in morals after he posted that there was nothing wrong with a 30 year old man having sex with a 16 year old boy.

We have all sinned according to what you believe so see you there. Isn't forgiveness what you are supposed to teach and preach not hate and intolerance?? If you have to make laws against a group of people to prove your morals and faith. Then you have no true morals or faith to prove!!

Can't. It's illegal. Because of outdated and disproven medical theories.

In New York and several other states I can marry my first cousin though, so why not my brother or sister?

Equal protection is not limited. There's plenty to go around. Stop trying to hog it all! Or do you have another motive?

Tolerated? Are you serious? Are Blacks tolerated too? Or handicapped people?people born without a limb? Just because someone is not in the majority does not mean they are tolerated. I suppose you think what Hitler did was ok? He was against groups of people that were not what he thought to be "normal". Seems similar to your thinking. Look at photos of protestors against interracial marriage from 40 years ago they look like idiots. It's also what you look like and will look like in the future. Things change and evolve or do you still take a horse to work and pump water from your well by hand?

Not even the lawyers who defended DOma or prop HATE(8)

could give the court a reason to ban gay marraige that WASNT based on prejudices, politics and personal belief.

he himself admitted that it was passed under such conditions.

The constituion clearly states that religious belifes are not to influence law making!!

we base our laws on the constittuion, not the bible..

sorry.

this isnt a nation founder by god to be run by jesus and his confused diciples...

exactly, it was passed with Obvious bias, and the court recognized that fact..

thus DOMA will liley be struck down....along with prop 8, which has already been found unconstituional by the california supream court.

or were you refering to another federal law that you think usurps rights unfairly...??

Yes. The laws against poly and incest marriage are EQUALLY unconstitutional.

Geez, tough guy. Grammar. At least try. Relax. Take your time.

You my dearest sunshine are confused! Are you gay? How does it work, is there a wife man and a husband man? Do you switch roles, and positions?

XBox

Frankie raises a valid point. If the opposite sex requirement is no longer to be maintained because it is considered discriminatory, by what reasoning do we maintain the prohibition against blood relatives from marrying? Or limit the number of spouses to two? Both of them are discriminatory.

Same can be said about polygamy, and marriage between relatives. Fair is fair.

Exactly....no reason to ban marriage between any consenting adults.

XBox is very bigoted against polygamy.(S)he once posted an angry hissy-rant against it, including "What about the children?!"

But of course Rose_NoHo ignored the flagrant violation of her dopey "Rose's Law". Still, according to Rose's Law, XBox is a moron.

ive seen alot of younger men with older guys.... they LOVE older guys

JERRY was with LITTLE boys......hardly comparable to a teen who knows he is totally gay...
lets see what GAY people have to say??
you and i arnt that qualified to judge a situation like that..
it is certainly in the border lands.....good call mother superior...
ill think on that..
comparing him to a child molester isnt really fair though...
try harder next time...
Refreshing, to see that you have found a way to justify pedophilia. I see that it isn't pedophilia, if the younger boy seeks the company of the older man, that seems to exonerate the older man. Nice.

Your intellect is truly.......dizzying. Let's see what the other gays have to say, shall we? If anything. They might stay strangely silent on this issue, although I would use the phrase "closing ranks"...
