Gays don't force straight people to desecrate families by having 40,000,000 abortions each year.

Gays don't force straight people to spend more on a wedding ceremony, very often going into debt, than they do on a good, midsize sedan.

Gays don't force straight people to divorce at a rate unseen in human history.

You guys seem to think we're the cause of your marriage and family woes.

Go look in the mirror, you yutz! You're your own worst enemy!

smirking dolt :
the law is central to the cases at hand and to what's been presented in court.
your opinion doesn't play into either the cases nor the law. just because you don't think that same sex couples can make a marriage doesn't negate the fact that they can (and will) obtain marriage licenses.
your opinion doesn't play into anyone else's marriages either.
if you consider the law a mockery, then your're free to leave and find a place of residence where you feel like you're surrounded by like minded people and you agree with the laws regarding marriage. good luck.
Honey, I'm not going anywhere.

I'm going to keep standing up and pointing at ss couples and say, "You are only a sterile duplicated half of marriage, you're not married!"

Interesting, you fail to answer a direct question to you, but want to jump in on another one. I guess the plate get's to hot when you engage directly. Like with ak...
As to your 'answer'...
Where did I ever talk about 'rights'?
You deliberately avoid the point, because you have absolutely no counter. Of course a court can make laws, and establish rights, whether they be valid or not.
What no man can do is change the clear distinction between a redumbant sterile half relationship with marriage.
The attempt is so silly stupid. When all is said and done, all that will be accomplished is a bunch of duplicate gendered couples with a piece of paper. Everyone will wink and say, "Yep, you're married, reminds me EXACTLY of mom and dad."
Snicker smile.

You silly twit, the law is a mockery when it denies reality.
It is not my 'opinion' that ss couples will only ever be a duplicated sterile half of marriage.
Lady justice is being gang raped by homosexuals.
Sad.

You belong out there with the picketers for Westboro Baptist Church. They would LOVE your schtick.
You don't know 'straight' in any way shape or form.

If you went 'straight', you'd have to go to the crass manipulation of the legal system at the expense of marriage and children. The fact of the matter is, it is a perfect description of what is happening.

So lets see. Lets sum up X-Box schtick so far today.
We should allow same sex marriage because Mr Hudson is stupid.
We should allow same sex marriage because Frankie is drug addled.
We should allow same sex marriage because Frankie is stupid.
We should...
Oh hell, you get the drift.
Those are all great reasons, but, you forgot the most important one. Gay Marriage should be legal because we deserve equal rights and we’re Americans. By the way, who is the “we” you are referring to? Could it be the arrogant elitist ignorant haters? When are “we”(being you and all your hater friends) going to realize you have no say when it comes to people’s rights. That’s why “we”(being you and all your hater friends) are losing the fight to suppress Gay Americans right to marriage. But, thanks for the silly tantrum, you always amuse me.

Well, apparently a number of people who are a whole lot more knowledgeable about the matter than you or I have decided that it was worth hearing.
Just because someone get's elected, appointed, or is issued a black robe doesn't make them "a whole lot more knowledgeable."

Those in power will always seek more of it if left unchecked, out founders warned of this, and we have failed in our duties. We now have a majority willing to bow to their overlords. we are truly ripe for a dictator.

Take same sex marriage for instance. Here are the homosexuals, they look at the heterosexuals and say, "Hmm, look, they get a piece of paper from the government which states they are "married". Then they get to use that piece of paper to get a bunch of "stuff" from the government." -now- rather than state the obvious- "Hey, I have this little thing here called the Constitution (either state or US), and Mr. Government, I can't find anything in here where it says you have the power to control, regulate, define, or otherwise provide benefits in regards to the personal relationships of your citizens! So, how about you get yourself back in line with your enumerated powers and get the hell out of the personal lives of your citizens."

Nope, instead the homosexual community says: "Hey, Mr. Government, could you please regulate my personal life too?"

And you fools claim you will be more FREE if the government "ALLOWS" you to marry. Enjoy your servitude.

And 14 Supreme Court rulings that identified marriage to be a right of all U.S. citizens seems to be at odds with your beliefs.
Maybe you believe that you know more about law than these people. Is that the case? If so, why didn't you offer your services to the proponents of Proposition 8? Maybe you did. Maybe they didn't want it.
No, I have explained this to you before, perhaps it didn't sink in. The SCOTUS identified the government's power to REGULATE marriage in 14 rulings.

And don't pretend to know what my "beliefs" are, you haven't a clue. Unlike you, I do not argue a position based on my personal wants, desires, or beliefs. I argue them based on the Constitutional principles upon which this Republic was founded.

BTW, I asked you a question that you simply ignored. You have claimed all these mystical powers of the judiciary, and I asked a very simple question. Where are these claimed powers found in Article III of the US Constitution?

Who said anything about 'gays forcing anything'?

Nor does the reality of those assaults on family and children change the fact that calling a sterile duplicated half marriage would do the same.

Nor does it change the fact that the bleeding churches are the liberal ones selling their souls.

Excellent post. I’m sure you won’t get any responses though. They’re much more content to make unfounded generalized statements that marginalize Gay Americans than to face the horrible truth that is their lives.

You ignorant haters sure do have a hard time reading for comprehension. Let me explain it for you, my point is that it doesn’t matter if I am a bigot, a hypocrite or anything else you want to label me to deserve Gay Marriage Equality. Essentially you feel you’re superior to Gay Americans and calling us names is your very lame (and I mean very lame) way of justifying your own hate. Cutting out all of your childish name calling and tantrums; you can’t present one valid reason why Gay Americans don’t deserve Gay Marriage Equality.
The point is I support your right to marry whoever you wish. Other than that you are a whiny little jerk.

And my other point is I support marriage equality and you do not. So climb down off your high horse hypocrite.
