Legal recognition is the only recognition that matters
"Invisible payment"? Is that what you told the finance company before they repossessed your car? You made an "invisible payment" and they just didn't see it?

Marriage did and does exist without any 'legal' involvement.

Our government has to have a prevailing interest to be engaged in marriage. Without children, it has none.

Yes just like it was ridiculous to think that more and more states would legally recognizing same sex marriages.
Times change, they did then just as they do today. There are some people however that cannot accept the change, but they are left in the dust as progress rolls on

I ask again, do you even think before you post?

Let me try and make this simple for you.

If a "marriage" is not "legal" without government recognition, than logic dictates that a "marriage" without government recognition is "illegal."

This runs completely counter with your argument that marriage is a "RIGHT."

One more time, do you think before you post?

Seriously, it's like you have a magic eight ball filled with talking points. You simply shake the ball and type whatever it says.

Yes, because if marriage is a "right" it cannot be "illegal"

Do you have a problem understanding the concept?
-It seems you do.

It's GOD's will, so let the Muslim's kill one another and blow themselves up in their own country.

Export them back to their own country.

Yes, this is what usually happens, when the government attempts to legislate morality, and to institute measures that the people don't approve of. It's called "protest' for a reason. As to the attacks, anybody can be targeted, for any reason, by idiots.

I agree, just mentioning that they are the ones filled with fear.
It is a lousy way to go through life
You must think yourselves to be very powerful, to imagine that we fear anyone. Did you fear your children, when you told them not to play with matches? Of course not. Did you fear them, when you told them that there'd be no cookies before dinner? No. Do you fear the dog-shit that you avoid stepping in? No. Stop being ridiculous.

You must be some kind of wimp, to threaten people on the internet. Your attempts to marginalize us for having opposite opinions proves that you are the traitor to the Constitution. You'd better keep being meek out in the world.

Scared to death that someone different than themselves will be recognized equally, even though that recognition will cost them absolutely nothing at all.
I wish that we were both in the same place, at the same time. I'd throw a drink in your face, and then, we'd see who the weasel really is.

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.
We'd prefer it if YOU left, and we could return to what is normal. If you don't like it here, then you should go and form your own country, instead of f**king ours up.

You ignorant haters sure do have a hard time reading for comprehension. Let me explain it for you, my point is that it doesnít matter if I am a bigot, a hypocrite or anything else you want to label me to deserve Gay Marriage Equality. Essentially you feel youíre 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 canít present one valid reason why Gay Americans donít deserve Gay Marriage Equality.
Did you say something, sugar, besides how you ignore all the rational arguments? I didn't think so.
