'I' am using fancy words to illustrate the fact that we, as a race, have never recognized gay as being deserving of marriage. Up until recently, we would never have even entertained the notion of it. But, now, we have so many lawyers about, it is inevitable that we have to address the issue, at all.
Who's "we"?

You and the other dumpy losers who get sloppy drunk playing poker on Friday nights?

And fellow American citizens are not deserving of a basic civil liberty because you say so?

Good luck with that.

LOL!!

Not a very good example of a red herring. Gov't resources will be wasted PURSUING the question of allowing the gays to marry.
You'll have to better than that.
Specifically how?

And was it a waste when they debated whether or not to allow slaves freedom in the 1800's given that topic centered around American citizens gaining civil rights as well?

Here's where you're a mess - you fail to recognize all American citizens are due a full set of liberties. Being allowed to marry an adult of one's choice is simply that...a liberty.

See....I don't have to dance around like a 3 legged dog on a cocaine diet to get to the point like you.

actually that is NOT the case in a growing number of states, and it doesn’t matter how angry you get, but now many tens ( if not hundreds ) of thousands of same sex couples are legally married.
More will follow
Get over it
It hasn’t hurt my marriage that they can marry, maybe you should look to your own marriage ( if you have found someone that will have you ) for the stability you lack in your own.
As it stands now, there are more states with Constitutional Amendments restricting marriage to one man and one woman. Enough that you couldn't even get close to the ratification of a Constitutional Amendment to legalize it across the land- in fact quite the opposite is true as we are far closer to the ratification of one to the contrary.

So everything you say is simply fantasy.

Stupid, my claim was: Skinner v OK was not a case about marriage. And it wasn't. It was a case about using forced sterilization as a means of punishment. Were any marriage laws changed because of Skinner?
Rose, if you don't know wtf you are talking about how do you expect anyone else to?

Like I said, call the court and tell them they screwed up and shouldn't have used Skinner v Oklahoma as precedent when calling marriage a "right" because Skinner v Oklahoma has nothing to do with marriage..

You are such an idiot.

Answer the question Rose, where is the check on the court?

I know you are dodging because you simply don't know. Why don't you just admit that and I could explain to you.

Whatever, b1tch.

Skinner v Oklahoma did, they just affirmed it. Not once does the court say "Marriage is a Right" outside of the reference to Skinner v Oklahoma Rose.
That's why they cited Skinner v Oklahoma. Stop trying to act as if you understand law because you watch Judge Judy.

You buffoon.
I know a very nice openly homosexual couple who are legally married and raising twin daughters, respected at work, and in the community.

I can tell you I would rather them raising children than people for whom hate is the center pillar of their lives.

Post 171104;

"'I' said "adopt", not foster care."

-You also mentioned foster care genius.

Where do you think adoptive kids come from if not in foster care or orphanges? You think they were dropped by one of the baby delivering storks?

LOL!!!

And BTW...kids adopted in either foster care or orphanages by gay families stand to fare better than if left in those institutions.

You've got at least 7 problems that I can identify and God knows how many others would come out if you lived close by but I'm only interested in one -

-How is it you think your opinion on homosexual marriage crosses over from just that, an opinion, into fact?

You're lost friend.

The only fact is that a group of American citizens, gays, want to hold the ability to marry the adult of their choice and that is by all indications a basic civil right.

American citizens should be entitled to a full set of freedoms marriage being one of those freedoms.

Apparently you disagree.

And specifically how does gay marriage "attack" marriages as a whole?

You talk out of your ass more than some homeless delusional drunkard in a bar claiming he's the head of the FBI and is only doing undercover work before he asks for some more money to keep his binge on.
