<quoted text>Wrong.
What Brown and AG Harris do are no more valid than when Mayor Gavin Newsome thought he could issue marriage licenses.
Washington (CNN)-- The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal over same-sex marriage on jurisdictional grounds, ruling Wednesday private parties do not have "standing" to defend California's voter-approved ballot measure barring gay and lesbian couples from state-sanctioned wedlock.
The 5-4 decision avoids, for now, a sweeping conclusion on whether same-sex marriage is a constitutional "equal protection" right that would apply to all states.
At issue was whether the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law prevents states from defining marriage to exclude same-sex couples, and whether a state can revoke same-sex marriage through referendum, as California did, once it already has been recognized.
But a majority of the Supreme Court opted not to rule on those issues. Instead, it ruled on "standing" -- whether those who brought the suit to the court were entitled to do so.
But there is legal uncertainty whether the high court's ruling could be enforced statewide, or limited to only a few jurisdictions.
Some Prop 8 supporters argued the high court ruling means the voter referendum remains in place and enforceable.
"Proposition 8 being the law of the state of California makes it clear that marriage is only one man and one woman. The four plaintiffs that brought this lawsuit may have a right to get marriage licenses issued to them. But this was not a class-action lawsuit. It does not apply statewide, " said Austin Nimocks, senior counsel at the Alliance Defending Freedom. "Because there's no appellate decision holding it unconstitutional under the California Constitution, which is what controls this interpretation, Proposition 8 remains the law of that state.
This is the truth, That YOU did not copy and paste.

By dismissing the case, the court leaves in place the lower court decision in California that allows same-sex marriage to be reinstated. The federal appeals court stay on the decision will be lifted.

Sorry but Austin Nimocks has no standing within the Government.

<quoted text>It would seem that you are blinded by the truth.
The simple truth is this, Same sex marriage is equal to that of opposite sex marriage. Sterility has nothing to do with it. You see reproduction has nothing to do with marriage.
Have a great day, Buttercup
Honey, you are confused.

I simply pointed out irrefutable distinctions between SS couples and marriage.

You correctly assert aimed that those differences disqualified SS couples.

SS marriage is an oxymoron.

Let me do the math for you. SSM is not legal in New Mexico, only in a few counties.
Let me do the math for you dumbass. 1) There's no such thing as a SSM, there is only marriage. 2) It is legal in all 50 states both for straights and for gays. Just because a state does not recognize it yet doesn't make it illegal you moron. Non bigoted churches and public officials are free to perform the ceremony in all 50 states.

But don't let facts get in the way of you pretending you know anything about anything. Reading your moronic posts is a hoot. I love people that have no problem demonstrating in such a public manner how idiotic they are. You're hilarious simple one.

We have pointed out the irrefutable fact that same sex couples are married and legally recognized regardless of your hateful opinions.

In the end,
Marriage is a miraculous reunion of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It units humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.
That isn't "in the end", it's merely "in your fantasy land".

A perfect example of why fantasy requires no reasoned response.

"Mars and Venus", "delicacy", "unbiased blend", "hosting"!! Oh my!!! One can just picture you clutching your string of pearls as you extoll this nonsense to the girls in your afternoon tea parties!!

However, at this point, I'm more married all by myself than SS couples are.
That's how severe your denial is.
<quoted text>
How is that a fantasy?
You don't have to dumb down marriage to 'two people with a contract'.
There is no gender discrimination in our union, where ss couples are.
And there is no way any union can be more complete than me and me.
Frankly, I think you are jealous...
Frankly we think you are a stupid jackass catty bitch.

Republican's are fast becoming a complete laughing stock in the nation.

The defecting Republicans represent two polar ends within the GOP, RNC.

A group from Maine fled the party because they feel the GOP isn’t conservative enough, while the Iowan Republican left saying the party had become too conservative and “hateful.”

And the stupid Republican, RNC, GOP and Tea Party Member's are all that is listed above.

And this isn't the half of it, more to come.

North Carolina Republicans passed perhaps the nation’s most restrictive voting law last month, they were just making it harder for minorities, students, and other Democratic-leaning groups to vote.

Don't leave evil people like Douglass Tessitor out of the lime light either, have you noticed how sickly he has been looking lately?

He has coughing spells, next thing that might happen is he pops a gasket during one of these disease ridden coughing spells.

And plops right on over in to the past.

You confuse the 80 findings of a judge whom you are completely unable to demonstrate any bias, with the outdated votes on an unconstitutional amendment.

Smile dear. You lost. All your fantasyland twirling can't change that! You and yours LOST. You lose more everyday! Your denial of that is hilarious and pathetically sad at the same time!
