Tell me about the Full Faith and Credit Clause.....
How can SCOTUS justify a couple being legally married in one State, but not in another?
and don't forget about that bothersome thing so many don't like to think about - the supremecy clause in the constitution.

yea, that usually puts some folks' panties in a wad, particularly when it comes to same sex marriage.

That's so cute of you, really, adorable, to accuse me of lack of ability to think, then to sidestep the issue that I presented you with, after spotting your errors, and then, then to act all dismissive, all the while, forgetting that your entire post was rubbish. How sweet of you, keep trying, maybe it's you who will end up at the grown-ups table... Because, after all, you needed the demonstration of thought, not me...
you mean that demonstration of thought that you failed at showing?

riiiight lil' buddy, right.

keep trying, though. someday you'll show some promise. we'll let you know when. i'm on your side, i do hope you do, show some signs of real thought.

hey, you started the insults.....all that does is devolve the discussion. it only serves your ego. so you make it look like your ego needs more support than does your mind - but we see it for what it is. so if you want to continue down the road of insults, then you're only worthy of ignoring as you don't really have anything of any relevance to add to the discussion.

good luck.

Didn't we have this conversation already???
Snicker.
joke's on you pal. the appeals court found that walker didn't need to recuse himself from the trial. the appeals court upheld his findings and rulings. now, your side isn't challenging whether or not he should've recused himself or not. guess you didn't get your memo out to them in time. well, that or they completely ignored your input.

and now we see the result is that SCOTUS is going to make a decision soon enough.

thanks for the belly laugh ki. you make me laugh every day.

No. There's no such thing as stupid pills Jizzy, they are fibbing to you.

Those pills you take are antipsychotics, not stupid pills.

As far as marriages stronger than those who fear SSM, I can’t tell you why their marriages are so weak, they will have to tell you that
Sure Big D. The liar straw man. I thought I had already shamed you out of that nonsense. Don't fall back on it.

So, if anal sex between two men is an "imitation of normal sex", then what is anal sex between a man and a woman? Is that an "imitation of gay sex"?

Prop 8 discriminates against poly marriage the same as it does against same sex marriage. You know, equally.

Careful now
Remember their marriages are so tragically fragile, that other people being able to marry somehow damages their marriage.
They are right on the edge, you might push them off the cliff accidently
Fortunately my marriage is plenty strong enough that your being able to marry won’t affect mine at all.
Hard for me to even imagine the knife edge these peoples marriages ride on
Ooooooooh....sooooooo profound Big D. So why just let any adult marry, legally, any other consenting adult. That way what ever form of marriage one chooses, won't endanger anyone else's marriage. Is your marriage so fragile that a marriage of, for example, husband wife, wife, & wife, will damage your marriage?

Where is the line drawn Big D? Is SSM the line in the sand?

It also discriminates against marriage with space aliens

It is a plot by the churches to keep people from marrying space aliens, the whole same sex argument was just a ploy to keep people from marrying space aliens as they are not men or women.

It is a conspiracy!!!!

I doubt few within my enlightened cohort have any greater love for my Homosexual friends, the lesbians, my fellow dog lovers, and yes, even the Africans, than I. Even so, I am mindful that prior to Big Government seizure of the American medical industry, Homosexuality and Zoophilia were considered to be psycho-sexual disorders.

Today, Government "doctors" no longer regard Homosexual behavior as a mental disorder. As more and more dog lovers are able to exert influence on our "democratic" body politic it can be expected that Big Government will grant the same constitutional rights to them. After all, what is "a democracy" for?

In this more enlightened post-60s 70s age, Government "doctors" are busy expanding their notion of what they consider to be "mental illnesses". For example, the Government now identifies Hoarding, skin picking and the temper tantrums of little children to be justification to "treat" these maladies with Government drugs.
