Do you think Rose_NoHo maybe had a stroke or something? Maybe she's over medicated?

Seriously, she used to be almost credible with some decent arguments. For quite a while she's just been a blathering idiot. What do you think is up with the old girl? I can't ask her. She won't talk to me.

Yes Rose, it's easy to look up, not so easy for you to comprehend.
You do realize why Loving V Virginia referenced Skinner V Oklahoma when making the statement that marriage was a "right" don't you? Because that was the SOURCE..
It's OK puppet, we don't expect much from you.
But Skinner vs Oklahoma wasn't about the right to marry, it was about the right to procreate and that the right couldn't be taken away just like the right to marry can't be taken away!!!

Time for an Education:

"Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race." Skinner v. Oklahoma ex rel. Williamson - 316 U.S. 535 (1942)

Note that there is no citation- Why? Because it is the SOURCE!!

What is different about Loving v Virginia?

"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival. Skinner v. Oklahoma, 316 U.S. 535, 541 (1942). "

Oh, look at that, a citation. Imagine that, the SCOTUS referenced Skinner v Oklahoma when establishing a "right" to marriage.

And you explanation in regards to the meaning of the Skinner v Oklahoma is lacking as well.

Nonsense. There is no marriage license required for procreation. Skinner was a 40s court decision about mandatory sterilization of a mentally disabled individual. What's more, procreation is not a legal requirement of marriage. Procreation is a fundamental right and so is the right to marry the person of your choice.

Are you trying to be funny?

No, I was stating a fact. Since neither of us sit on the SCOTUS, it really doesn't matter what we think, so the best we can go on is the case law as it is.

The problem I have, is when people try to twist and distort a decision, such as trying to use the Loving v Skinner decision as some type of mandate for same sex marriage. Something which it clearly was not. And thus far, there is NO SCOTUS decision which mandates a right to marry the person of your "choice".

Why would I ignore the court jester, she is so entertaining.

And as far as lowering myself to her level? Hardly, at least in my posts I am pointing out facts in regards to her behavior as well as providing examples of such with references to her previous posts. In order to lower myself to her level I would simply repeatedly post-

LOLSER and CONDUMB over and over again in reply to every post.

Actually what the courts are saying is that marriage and procreation are fundamental rights and neither can be denied.

Skinner was about a person who was going to be forced to be sterilized because people thought he was incapable of raising children due to his low intelligence........the Justices stated that the State can't do that because procreation is a FUNDAMENTAL right that can't be denied, for any reason. So, Skinner vs Oklahoma is purely about procreation.

Loving vs Virginia is strictly about being denied the fundamental right to marriage regardless of race.

Even though one is mentioned in the other.........the common link is that both marriage and procreation are FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS THAT CAN NOT BE DENIED!!!

I have learned so much about the cases that SCOTUS has ruled on regarding Marriage and Procreation and even though the 2 have been mentioned together......they don't go hand in hand!!!

Oh and I've been reading your posts for almost 4 years and we have even had discussions through pm......sorry, but the more I read these cases the more I understand that though both procreation and marriage are mentioned.......they are done so because they are major decisions in a couple's life.

I typically don't post to you, but just don't understand why you feel the need to continue to insult someone whom you think is not worth it in the first place.

No, that is not what the courts have said, that is what people are ASKING the courts to say which is why this issue is yet to be resolved.

Sorry, but in the past that is exactly what SCOTUS has stated and they might do it again with regards to Prop 8 or they might just rule on the Standing issue(though I seriously doubt that)........we will know by June if SCOTUS truly meant that marriage is a Fundamental right or if they only meant it to be fundamental for heterosexuals.

If that's entertainment for you......then you really need another form of entertainment......because truly after 4 years, it's just pathetic!!!

She has a right to post her opinions and if ya don't agree with them......and ya don't, then you have the right to counter them......but to continue to make the same comments over and over and over again, is rather redundant and boring......I think you are better than that and if I am wrong......well, then it wouldn't be the first time!!!

The issue is not "marriage", the issue is the definition of "marriage". In not ONE instance has the SCOTUS ever claimed anything other than the Union of a man and a woman to be a marriage. Could that definition change? Sure, but the question we really should ask ourselves is- do we want a federal court which lacks the authority of the Constitution to define marriage to make that decision?

Remember, they are also going to hear the DOMA case, which specifically was decided based on the premise that the regulation and definition of marriage rested with the State.
