Dear, mass doesn't cause gravity; it responds to it. The actions of mass in relation to another object simply tells us that gravity is present. But it doesn't cause it.

In the future, it might be better to check out these things before coming here and making a complete fool of yourself.

No, but maybe can let them all get married. Wait, they already can. It was never an issue. and, no, we haven't lost yet, you kind of did, though, you were waiting for SCROTUS to mandate it at a national level, and they didn't. It barely made it past SCROTUS at all, 5-4, wasn't it? Oh, yeah, you were claiming that Sotomayor meant this and meant that, and all she meant was that if we have no right to determine laws concerning SSM, then we have no right to make ANY laws re: marriage, at all. and, the count still stands at 13=for, 37=against. Laughing all the way, because some of the politicians now wish to have SSM vetoed.
We won a major victory in the courts. The decision that was handed down included references to same-sex couples being treated as second class citizens. It also described the inequality of children who live in a family headed by same-sex couples.

These are the key phrases that will cause state's DOMA policies to fail when same-sex couples sue such states for refusing to acknowledge their marriage.

Here's how it will happen... A same-sex couple will apply for a marriage license and be denied. They will appeal and be denied. They will sue the state. The state court will find in favor of the state. The couple will then appeal to a federal district court. When it hits the federal court system, there's where John Robert's words will help topple state DOMA policies.

It'll take time. But, that's fine. We've got plenty of time to see that it happens.

This doesn't include all of the other states that are poised to push for marriage equality.

It doesn't matter how it happens, you only need to know that it will happen.

Like a cleft lip, homosexuality has existed in all of human history. Only in the last few decades have scientists known what causes a cleft lip. That determination will likely happen regarding homosexuality shortly.

In the mean time, throughout human history, both a cleft lip and homosexuality have been regarded as abnormal by all cultures.

The gravity of your stupidity is exposed.

In your example, scientists admit they don't know.

In my example, scientists deny they don't know, a clear violation of scientific proof.

Not only does their assessment of homosexuality become meaningless, it exposes their ignorant prejudice.

Abnormal does not mean void of rights and freedom....To say being gay is abnormal and to say cleft lip is abnormal is fine but BOTH SHOULD HAVE EQUALITY AND FREEDOM AND CIVIL RIGHTS.....

I'm Gay and I Oppose Same-Sex Marriage
by Doug Mainwaring

“I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph, and there is purpose and worth to each and every life.” These words, spoken by Ronald Reagan in 1991, are framed on the wall above my desk. As a gay man, I’ve adopted them as my own, as I’ve entered the national discussion on same-sex marriage.

I wholeheartedly support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, but I am opposed to same-sex marriage. Because activists have made marriage, rather than civil unions, their goal, I am viewed by many as a self-loathing, traitorous gay. So be it. I prefer to think of myself as a reasoning, intellectually honest human being.

The notion of same-sex marriage is implausible, yet political correctness has made stating the obvious a risky business. Genderless marriage is not marriage at all. It is something else entirely.

Opposition to same-sex marriage is characterized in the media, at best, as clinging to “old-fashioned” religious beliefs and traditions, and at worst, as homophobia and hatred.

I’ve always been careful to avoid using religion or appeals to tradition as I’ve approached this topic. And with good reason: Neither religion nor tradition has played a significant role in forming my stance. But reason and experience certainly have.

..
Lots of straight folks don't like the idea of marriage, but we don't deny others the right to marry because if their opinions.

The nice thing is that even the naysayers can change their minds and marry at some point if their circumstances and beliefs change, or they can choose never to marry. Their choice, not mine, yours, or society's.

California is a done deal, and every marriage there is recognized by the federal government. That's not going to change.

It's about time you learned to accept it.

If you weren't a tween pipsqueak who is here because GLAAD and GLSEN pays you in Twizzlers and Clearasil, then we could probably rightfully accuse you of being one of the lumpen masses of sewage who to this day is in a rage over the SCROTUS stealing the election from Al Gore.

Keep gloating over 5 to 4 and overpopulation pressures, fecal cultist.
