That's right, because they were issues left to the states. That is until 3/4ths of the States agreed to add that control to the Federal Government through a Constitutional Amendment ratified by them.

Thus far there is no such Amendment for marriage. It is still a State issue.

Worth waiting for?

The question you really should be asking yourself is- is the SCOTUS really ready to demand all 50 States must accept same sex marriage?

If I was you, I would be more concerned with the fact that the SCOTUS decided to hear a case which already forced same sex marriage onto the people of a State against their vote, and the court this case came from is the MOST overturned court by the SCOTUS in the land.

No, we are asking about a case where an established sight to marry was stripped from a minority group based only on animus.

Although, right now the Court is asking primarily about standing on Prop 8.

We shall see.

Seriously... STFU it's getting creepy.
Are you confusing ("confussing") us with some gay guys you know? I'm not gay and I doubt Mr. Hudson is either. But tell us about it. Why do you hate gays? Is there something bad about them?

Calling gays "creepy" is stupid. Especially here. They're not creepy. But you certainly are!

What a jerk!

P.S. Re-post those pictures of that hot redhead!

You can laugh all the way to jail.

If you're so gung-ho to marry more than one person, what's stopping you?

I'm not. It's just that I support equal rights for everyone including homosexuals and poly.

And of course, bigots like you made polygamy illegal. So you cannot do it. Similar to same sex marriage in most states. You won't go to jail for SSM like you will for poly, but you still cannot do it.

It's very telling that you hate the fact that ssm is not allowed, but you cheer the fact that poly is not allowed. It suggests that you are a hypocrite.

Nothing you said addressed the facts I stated.

They certainly did not disqualify my facts;

1. Heterosexual couples who do not procreate are still a large minority.

You simply argue that heterosexual couples are delaying or may not at this time choose to have children (those 'decisions' change all the time). Minor fluctuations in rates does not change my facts.

2. Gay couples are 'absolutely desolate' by mutual procreation.

You blatantly attempt to make the same idiotic, deceitful comparison.

-The unnatural barrenness of heterosexual couples to the absolute mutual desolation of every single gay couple.

-Even worse, your 'solution' leaves the child always absent one parent and one gender! A horrible and cruel deprivation of a child's well-being. Something that is diabolical and should be criminal. Anyone deliberately perpetrating this on a child is despicable.

This is a example of what evil consequences the attempt to equate duplicate couples to marriage leads to...

Your denial is sick and dangerous!

The founders are worm poop now.
Some even supported slavery, and murder of Natives.
If funny that the same people who claim they are for small government want the government telling us which sex positions we can use. And they think putting men in jail is a good way to get then to stop engaging is sodomy.
It's the 2010's now..

"you're wrong"??? That's your argument.

Marriage is a cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. SS couples are a direct contradiction. A violation of nature. You could be blind as a bat and dumb as a rock and still know they are not the same. Even a child says, "Are you serious???"
Smirk.
Stupid, marriage is a legal contract. And you don't have to be able to reproduce in order to enter that contract.

Do you think you should have been aborted? You describe yourself as a mutated monster, or something similar.
