Even funnier?

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' fruit trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call nut trees fruit trees too!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Hilarious!!!

The vast majority of women who do try it don't.

Hence the difference in screams coming from gay bedrooms and hetero bedrooms...

No he targets only those that are for same sex marriage, and defends anyone opposed.
Which is fine, except he claims to be for Same sex marriage so he can try and dupe new folks into stupid comparisons.
We have seen it over and over and overÖ. so I just de-rail it before it starts and let them know he is trying to dupe them
But, we've all seen him go after either side.

the only federal mandate regarding gay marraige, is the defense of marraige act......which is likely to be ruled unconstitutional soon.
True, and DOMA is in fact Unconstitutional.

you dont really think the court is going to mandate gay marrige on the federal level?? like with abortion??
I put nothing past the SCOTUS, they are drunk with power, and have been damn near the Marshall court.
Tommy cochrane wrote:

just because they are considering the constitutionality of dOMA??
There are 2 cases under consideration. DOMA is but one.

they are a conservative court by nature.....not reallly an activist court.....like in 1973
I wouldn't go that far, they did rewrite Obama care to rule it Constitutional.
Tommy cochrane wrote:
<quoted text>
the least they can do is strike it down and send the issue back to the states to decide!!
That would be partially correct. I do think CA presents an interesting case though where I could see the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment coming into play as there are 2 classes of homosexuals, one group which is in fact legally married and another which can no longer enjoy that privilege. The only issue I really have with that being the decision is that this second class of homosexual would have been created by a ruling of the court, not a legislative or electoral process, and if in fact they rule that it is an issue left to the State's, than the previous decision by the court should also be tossed.

which is what is likely to happen...wouldnt you agree??
Again, I make no prediction, I can simply state what I believe is the Constitutional answer and provide sources to support my position. What the court does is anyone's guess.

I've got to say that I'm pretty stunned by your comments...
Straight people "come out" at a very young age; talking about their attractions to others. As they get older, they openly talk about their sexual conquests, marriages, attempts to get pregnant, etc.
There are entire television programs built on heterosexual love and sex. You see it on commercials (sex sells). You see it in print media.
We, rightly or wrongly, are bombarded by it.
So, if an individual "comes out" as being attracted to people of the same gender; it's a little hypocritical to call it "sexual harassment".
Besides, claiming one's orientation in our society today, is more of a statement of pride and self-acceptance. In an environment of hate and fear of gays, it is a way of saying to yourself and the community at large, "I will no longer abide by your archaic and ignorant demands!"
Furthermore, when a celebrity does this, it helps other young and other LGBT people to feel less isolated and more empowered.
I thought you were a reasonable person.
What happened?
Bragging and sharing stories with one's close circle of friends is entirely different than being a celebrity and using the media to announce your sexual orientation. Don't you agree? Besides, I've not heard of any heterosexual celebrities getting the waves and claiming "I'm straight", have you? It is a tactic dedicated solely to the public announcement of homosexuality. Nothing happened to make me any less reasonable that you thought me to be yesterday, Jared brought up the subject and I thought I'd comment on it. What is wrong with that? I haven't tried to use any media to announce my orientation, have you?

North Korea is a LOW RENT district already, but if those idiots shot a cannon at themselves or some other stupid act of WAR, then the land will not be worth a plug nickel.

And the little dictator, 29 year old FOOL will lose his sand box all together to play tin-solder in.

Maybe the US and S. Korea will have to bring back Napalm to clean off the land in N. Korea.

I'm not imposing my choice on you but you are on me. My marriage will never effect you directly but your choice to keep me from marrying does directly effect me. Big difference. You can have your beliefs but let me have mine as well.
This wasn't about the denial of "your" choice, it was about your denial of the right's of others.

You attempt to grasp at this "marriage is a right" but only in the case of homosexual and heterosexual two person unrelated unions.

What of poly-marriage and incestuous marriage? Are they any less in love? Should they be denied their happiness?

Sorry if I don't buy into your holier than though "I am fighting for equal right's" nonsense when you are really only interested in your own personal gain.

Me personally, my position is get government out of the marriage business, remove the benefits which in and of themselves do not treat people equally, and let people Unite in relationships as they choose.

I'm sorry that you are so upset that my position is far more one of "EQUALITY" and "INCLUSION for ALL" than your position.
