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.

Rare exceptions? Indeed.

Oh, BTW, same sex couples can employ some of the same methods for procreation that sterile heterosexual couples resort to.

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!

Qusetion. Why do people referance the bible at all. Its not a law, nor does it pertain to the question of same sex marriage? Answer, Jesus Freaks think that the bible is law. Now move on asshat

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!

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.

You are silly stupid. The ability to reproduce is just not a requirement for marriage.

Deal with that fact, for once.

If you want to put a chink in the armor of "Procreation is irrelevant in marriage" tell em you support incest marriage. Listen to the stuttering and double talk! Fun!

I do. I support all forms of marriage among consenting adults. I find some of the biggest bigots against less common forms of marriage are same sex marriage advocates. Funny that. You'd think maybe they are hypocrites.

There you go again, with that fantasy stuff. He didn't say that. He said marriage had a clear purpose, other than sexual gratification. Can't you post without adulterating context ? And you are not in any position to hand anything over, you have no power to control it. The Constitution was written very clearly, and no mention was made of SSm.
But stupid, it can't mention every law in the Constitution. So, it says we should have equal protection under THE law. That includes marriage laws. That's why the 14th Amendment was sited in Loving v VA. The Constitution doesn't mention inter-racial marriage either.

Our politicians have decided that the very nature of our country is to be violated.
Gay marriage will violate the very nature of our country!?
