Sure they have, there was a case in Utah very recently. Just because you don't know about it doesn't mean it didn't happen, you are ignorant of a lot of things.
But why does it matter how many people want it or how many current court cases there are? WHY? Why do keep saying that?
Do we issue equal rights by popularity contest? Do I get to decide on your marriage?
Let me know how that goes, if it every comes to California or to the supreme court I will take notice.

No we are a nation of law, we donít do civil rights by popularity contest which is why your buddies in Utah are so upset that we are overturning prop 8, they wanted it to be by popularity, but they were wrong.

Now it begs the question, if your heroes in Utah are so much for marriage equality, why did they fund the campaign in California opposing it?

It is not our duty to create or destroy governments in foreign lands. Doing so only brings us grief, death, and financial loss in the end.

Calm down. They are not my buddies.

I suppose you'll never apply for a job at the American Civil Liberties Union. Since you believe unpopular people don't deserve civil liberty.

The huge difference is that straights have an option, gays don't. However, in either case, Anal sex is inherently Harmful, unhealthy and demeaning. Moreover, MOST people don't engage in anal sex. Something about common sense...
Smirk.
Are you saying gays Have to have anal sex? No more than straights have to have vaginal sex. It isn't mandatory. There are a few other options.

I donít have any heroís on death row

but it is interesting that you invoke Utah, the very state that is the champion of fundraising opposed to marriage equality.

So now your argument is shifting to the "Frankie's heroes in Utah" straw man?

They are not my heroes. I'm not going to bite.

They deserve the same civil rights as you do. Even the .005% of them that are criminals. Which is by the way the about same percentage for you, a heterosexual male.

Do you ban marriage because some men abuse their wives? Do you ban marriage because some men marry underage girls?

You really need to learn to read, I am not opposed to it. I have no argument against it.

But I find it hilarious that you are invoking Utah as the people that are championing marriage equality, the same people that are the primary funding for Prop 8

Sort of a contradiction isnít it?

I will remember it though, when you think of champions of marriage equality.... you think... Utah!
