The Supreme Court's ruling in late June, 2013 that weakened the Voting Rights Act, the Justice Department will use the law to go after what it considers discriminatory practices.

And the first target will be "Texas", in a dispute over new boundaries drawn by the racists Republican legislature for congressional and legislative districts.

That about sums it up, although I would put Frankie in the troll category, I suspect Frankie would put Frankie in the troll category actually.
Pietro's arguments are childís play to dismiss, arguments so lame they were not even brought up in court, the lawyers defending prop 8 knew better than that, even if they didnít know better than to bring up procreation.
Kil Mare is doing a dance, trying oh so desperately to force the law to a belief system using anything however remotely applicable to bend the law to that belief system. The funniest parts of those arguments are the "scientific" ones, which bear no resemblance to actual science.
Opinions approved by the rainbow committee- Not a troll!

If I understand things correctly, here's where we stand:
Pietro--believes that since same-sex couples are not able to consummate their marriage with reproductive sex, then their marriage is invalid. He also believes that polygamy and incest should be legalized since same-sex marriage is legal.
Frankie--believes that he must post every 2 to 5 minutes. He believes that gay marriage is OK, so long as polygamy and incest marriages are also legal.
Kimare--believes about two-dozen things when it comes to marriage. First he believes that same-sex couples are "redumbdant" because they are unable to have children. But he swears that he does not believe the reproductive capabilities or intentions of a couple should be taken into account when it comes to marriage.
He also believes that marriage is a "cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior"; but also agrees that there are reasons for marrying other than just to reproduce.
He believes that homosexuality is a disorder since no one has ever been able to determine the cause of it. But he accepts that gravity is natural, even though we don't know what causes it either.
He believes that all anal sex is harmful and demeaning, even though a good number of straight people engage in it. And I'm Assuming he also agrees with anal sex within the confines of marriage--so long as the couples are straight.
he believes he has a God-given right to judge others, but claims that he has never made a judgment about a person's relationship.
Laughing Man and Rock Hudsony are pretty much irrelevant. Laughing Man is a troll. And Rock just hates gays.
Are we all on the same page now?
You are so humble!!! You left yourself out.

VV pontificates everything. But not until he has twirled, twisted, shifted, slandered and lied. Nothing else is important or considered except his gay colored world. He is determined to put a bent rod in a straight hole and call it ss marriage.

Smile.

we have watched you twirl and twist and shift and slander and lie and you still have not recognized that same sex couples are indeed married and recognized on the state and federal level.

Are you willing to have the following marriages annulled:
--Marriages involving elderly couples who are incapable due to age or medical problems to engage in reproductive intercourse
--Marriages involving one or both members who have a mental impairment (depression, PTSD, anxiety/panic, etc.), keeping them from consummating for reproductive purposes.
--Marriages involving one or both members who have physical problems that impair them from engaging in intercourse for reproductive purposes. Examples would include war injuries, diabetes, various cancers, etc.
---------
By the way, annulment happens when a married person seeks to have their marriage ended. The government doesn't go on witch hunts looking for marriages to be annulled.
As with a couple's reproductive intentions, the government doesn't hand out marriage certificates based on a full physical and psychological examination indicating that both people seeking a license are capable of consummating their marriage.
Bottom line, it's just another distraction. None of your business what goes on in a legally married couple's bedroom. Just move along.
I know how hard that it is for you to keep yourselves out of other people's affairs, but try to.
With your fascination with anal sex and Pietro's fascination with reproductive consummation, you guys are beginning to creep the rest of us out.
In all those cases, apart from age and medical conditions, the possibility of consummation is there.

For ss couples? Never.

The same is true about children.

Ss couples are 100% mutually barren.

Consummation is just another profound example of the differences between ss couples and marriage.

The absolute inability to connect the past and the future of humanity in the moment of marriage union.

Admit it, VV, ss couples are disqualified. ALWAYS.

Nope, you just proved your eyes are still tightly closed

They ARE married, and recognized on the state and federal level regardless of your opinion.

Not an opinion, an actual legal fact

One that you have your eyes closed to

Coitus.

Pietro believes marriage is a union of husband and wife, and that said union should recognized, privileged, and soley legally maintained, as such. Same sex marriage is a contradiction in terms, marriage is a union of both sexes.
He also believes that polygamy and incest should be legalized since same-sex marriage is legal.
He is puzzled by SSM advocates who insist that conjugality is expendable, but monogamy is not. Perhaps the all powerful and wise Big D, or his sidekick Big Red, could explain this.

There is no expectation of procreation in order to get a marriage license.

There is no expectation of consummation in order to get a marriage license.

Wrong on both counts

I know veterans that have lost the lower half of their bodies that could not in any way procreate or consummate that were married. There is no such expectation, and they had no difficulty obtaining a marriage license, and are now married.

Your eyes are still tightly closed to the fact that same sex couples are legally married and recognized as such on both the state and federal level.

I see human beings living in severe denial, trying to build a fallacy on the backs of marriage, family and children.

The most caring thing I can do is confront that denial as severely as necessary.

I simply point out unchangeable realities. Think about what you are asking people to do.

No but it does provide certain grounds for annulment.
As with a couple's reproductive intentions, the government doesn't hand out marriage certificates based on a full physical and psychological examination indicating that both people seeking a license are capable of consummating their marriage.
Nor does it require a statement of orientation indicating attractiveness , or lack there of, to the other party.
Bottom line, it's just another distraction. None of your business what goes on in a legally married couple's bedroom. Just move along.
Then petition the state to have any, and all references to sex, sexual intercourse, removed from the books.
I know how hard that it is for you to keep yourselves out of other people's affairs, but try to.
With your fascination with anal sex and Pietro's fascination with reproductive consummation, you guys are beginning to creep the rest of us out.
Me too....you keep insisting there's no differences between SSCs, and OSCs, that somehow every aspect of marriage jurisprudence applies to SSM.
