Notice how the SCOTUS says the EXACT OPPOSITE? That means YOU ARE WRONG.
How long are you going to cling to your delusion?
<quoted text>No. Any time you pretend that I am forward a position which I am NOT and then argue as if I were, THAT is a strawman. Notice how you even prefaced it with "If you want to make the argument..." I didn't want to make that argument. I DIDN'T make that argument. That's merely the argument you wanted to respond to, so you had to invent it.
If you knew a little more about debate, I wouldn't have to explain that to you.

<quoted text>Uh, the SCOTUS DOES agree that marriage is a Right (the ONLY claim I have made in regard to what they think.) They DID take it up a long time ago. It's the case YOU sited.
When your reading comprehension catches up and you can stop arguing against claims I haven't made, THEN you can lecture me on debating skills.
I see you can read, it is the comprehension that you have problems with.

You should work on that.

Here is what the SCOTUS as said in regards to marriage being a "right"
"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.Skinner v. Oklahoma, 316 U.S. 535, 541 (1942)"- Loving v Virginia
Yep. Marriage is a right. Why do you claim it's not?

Yeah, "Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man,". Basic civil rights are a subset of rights. So, marriage is a right.
You claim it's not.

I can read just fine. I'm worried about you though. The case YOU sited is the one that proves you wrong. How is it that escapes you?

Yeah, and they say the EXACT OPPOSITE of what you claim. Have you been drinking?

Exactly which part did I miscomprehend? The part where you said marriage isn't a right, or the part where the United States Supreme Court says it is?

wasn't Vaughn Walker the homosexual who got klonked on his head by a woman with a beehive his last day at work, started yelling at everyone to screw themselves, deployed the escape chute, and raced through the airport to be arrested in bed with another man?

You missed where he admitted in writing that he "moved the strike zone" in this case
If Walker's ruling had survived intact through the Court of Appeal's ruling, we wouldn't be talking the evident fate of just California's amendment, but the fate of all of them. Given the disastrous court record of the proponents, he went for putting them all out of their misery. The three Judge panel didn't even take him to task for it, because he did get one thing right, there is no way you can call what went on in California constitutional.

Walker was in the closet until he was outed recently
Although he had never publicly acknowledged his homosexuality, it wasn't a secret either. BOTH sides were aware of it before trial. Hell, readers of this forum could have known about it if they read the article I posted on here before the trial began.
jacques renault wrote:
Before then, like you he was maintaining deep cover as a homosexual, he for selfish reasons, which he more than made up for to his Frisco friends his last day on the job
Let's see, everybody who thought they might need to know, did know and the Judge who heard the claim that the mere fact that he was homosexual was an indication of his bias politely laughed the argument so hard out of court that they haven't bothered to appeal it. California's amendment is done for, get used to it.

Why?

Two US Supreme Court Justices have already said this will be as easy as Baker v Nelson

These wouldn't be two (out of Nine) of the same justices that thought the Affordable Care Act was Unconstitutional, would they?

How'd that turn out, again?

Continue advocating keeping a portion of the population as second class citizens. How American of you.

O.K. Here goes...

What do you think of this? AND have you ever heard this before?

Someone called into C-Span with a theory that said (PARAPHRASE) ethnic/religious groups that have been profoundly damaged or humiliated by another group suffer a “Form of PTSD called…???.”(she gave a name, which I don’t remember)

....But it’s a syndrome that lasts for generations. This would include groups like Native Americans (genocide) Jews (genocide) Armenians (genocide) African Americans (slavery)...Irish (whatever the Brits did).... anyway, you get the idea.

The suffering and pain inflicted on these groups lasts for generations and so far there has been no recognition of this kind of disorder and it should be addressed.

An example she gave was GW Bush’s use of the word “crusade” after the 9/11 attack. The Christian Science Monitor said…
“ Bush's reference to a "crusade" against terrorism, which passed almost unnoticed by Americans, rang alarm bells in Europe. It raised fears that the terrorist attacks could spark a 'clash of civilizations' between Christians and Muslims, sowing fresh winds of hatred and mistrust.
His use of the word "crusade," said Soheib Bensheikh, Grand Mufti of the mosque in Marseille, France, "was most unfortunate", "It recalled the barbarous and unjust military operations against the Muslim world," by Christian knights, who launched repeated attempts to capture Jerusalem over the course of several hundred years…..

...And so it goes on and on...the damaged groups, just like PTSD victims, relive past hurts that, and can live on through generations....

I just saw in the paper the grandson of a Concentration Camp victim had his grandmother's number tattooed on his own arm...

Your thoughts please...

And if you can stand anymore...

This PTSD may also be said of the Southern Confederacy, as much of the war was fought on their ground, so they suffered not only loss of life, but the trauma of having enemy soldiers on their territory and its lasting effects.

The Confederate flag, which for Northerners belongs in museums and/or on personal property think to fly it on public lands is treasonous, because of what it represents. It's especially repulsive to African Americans, as you probably know...

Anyway, is the question....Should the damaged groups be the sole “deciders”/aribiters as to what kind of “band aids” need be applied to help “scab up” wounds that may never heal?

Is the answer is “no” because they can’t, in all probability, find solutions that will not “hurt” another (enemy) culture, creating yet another “PTSD” group?

Is this a valid "diagnosis" of what's wrong with us?
