Same sex marriage is apartheid marriage. Where husband/wife marriage is gender diverse now we have gender segregated marriage.
Once, marriage was always integrated and now we have gender disunion marriage.

You now have gender segregation, you're divorced.

I would like to know: With so many hetrosexual couples getting married and getting divorced, why would marriage interest same sex couples so much?

At one point, Satan takes Jesus to the top of a mountain, and shows him ALL of the kingdoms of earth. This would only be possible if the earth were flat. It's quite clear that the people who wrote the buy-bull believe the earth was flat, the heavens were solid, and the moon gave off its own light. Since even people as dumb as you know these things aren't the case, we can dismiss the buy-bull as god's inerrant word.

Really. How does that assertion explain the divorce rate.
However, it wasn't my point.
What is government interest in giving special rights to only certain friendships with a select number?

actually, the state failed to show it had interest in not granting the same rights to homosexual coupls.
and the state was represented not by the state attorney, but instead by republicans and their attornies.
that decision has been upheld by every judge that has had the appeal presented to them by the republicans and their attornies.
You didn't answer my questions.

1. What prevailing interest does the government have in granting rights and benefits to friendships?

2. On what basis does it limit those rights and benefits to only couples of any gender?

Looks like another dumb-ass judge running California.
Members of minority groups are also part of WE THE PEOPLE. One reason we have judges is to protect them against the tyranny of the majority.

You are so stupid. You don't even know what the term "red herring" means! You think I'm talking about fish!
LOLSER!
And dummy, I didn't say it's not an equal right issue becuse it just isn't. I explained why it isn't. You are just too dumb to understand.
Equal means the same.
Everybody has the same rights when it comes to marring more than one person.
Again, fart breath, if you want to talk about polygamy, why don't you start a forum about the subject? Oh, yeah, because you don't give a damn about polygamy one way or another, you are just against gay marriage, but have no real argument against it. So, you bring up the red herring of polygamy.
BTW:
"A red herring is a figurative expression referring to a logical fallacy in which a clue or piece of information is or is intended to be misleading, or distracting from the actual question"

You are so stupid you don't know I'm making you look even more stupid!

You're the idiot who doesn't recognize a good piece of sarcasm.

You're either dishonest or stupid (and I suspect it's both) to say that
my sarcastic statement "Polygamy is not a fish" means I don't know what a red herring is.

We've had this stupid conversation before. And you pulled the same sh!t.
Switch to a lower grade, maybe you would have remembered.

You know NOW. I posted a link for you. You claim it's sarcasm NOW, because you realize how stupid you were, not knowing.

Such a liar. Anyone interested can look back and see many posts where I used that line "Polygamy is not a fish" against the "Polygamy is a red herring" argument.

What a dishonest jerk. You might fool some of your dopey fans but no one else.

I support marriage equality. You do not. Why are you a polyphobic hypocrite?

Just like the Tea Party poster boy, Tim Donnelly. The clown who gave responsible gun owners a bad name. You remember when the idiot tried to board a public aircraft with a loaded 44 cal. semi Auto pistol with extra bullets in a second ammo clip.

Supreme Court Rules L.A. County Not Responsible for Polluted Waters.

The current Court decision is a blow to environmentalists who wanted the county to clean copper, fecal bacteria and other pollutants from L.A. rivers before it reached the ocean.
