When your crazy and have been brain-washed by a religion for hundreds of years this is what you get, an oppressed female being told by her slave master's to lie, cheat and steal for Allah.

The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects insisted (screamed) that her sons are not responsible for the attack and said she did not see any aggression in the older brother, even when the FBI questioned him two years ago.

It would be an excercise in futility to debate the Constitutionality of something woth someone who self admittedly is ignorant of the subject matter.
What do you base your opinion on?
I base my opinion on logic.

Heterosexual couples are legally allowed to marry. They make whatever promises to one another in front of groups of people or only to one another. This is a "ceremony"; an act that in the eyes of the law means nothing.

Homosexual couples can do the same thing. We have "commitment ceremonies" or other public/private exchanges of promises. They also, legally, mean nothing.

Heterosexual couples have the extra benefits and protections of legal marriage. These benefits and protections allow them to do any number of things--take FMLA, receive spousal Medicare or Social Security benefits, obtain base housing in the military, inheritance protection; the list goes on.

Gay couples pay into the same systems that straight couples pay into. They get the benefits, we do not.

Even straight couples who enter into "sham marriages" are able to get these benefits.

Every accepted scientific, medical, and legal collective,(ABA, AMA, APA, NASW, etc.) is in support of same-sex marriage. They all recognize that same-sex partnerships, at their foundation, are equal to opposite-sex partnerships.

There is NO REASON why same-sex couples should be denied the exact same benefits and protections that legally married heterosexual couples have.

That is up to the Supreme Court and has been since 1803 :)
The funny part is it is the opponents of Same Sex marriage the pushed the issue to the supreme courts, as all courts that have reviewed the case below them have already ruled that Prop 8 should fall.
The unequal treatment of same sex couples will end
Only 2 ways to do that
Nullify the 18,000 legally married same sex couples that now already exist and are recognized in California ( not going to happen, can you imagine the lawsuits if they did that )
Or uphold the overturn of Prop 8 as the lower courts have already done, making all same sex couples equal in the state of California
Your opponents are expecting the latter... and they should, it is the obvious solution to the issue.
Excellent post!

Excellent post!
Thanks, it always surprises me that folks don’t understand the actual equal rights issue, It isnt the recognitiion of same sex marrage, California already does, It recognizes same sex marrages preformed in other states and it recognizes 18,000 same sex marrages that have already occurred in the state of Califronia.

A large part of the equal rights issue has to do with why some same sex couples are being treated differently than other same sex couples, depending on when they got married.

Recognition of same sex marrage is not even on the agenda… that is already a fact both before and after Prop 8. There are 18,000 in California, there are over 120,000 nationwide.

After DOMA section 3 falls ( just about everyone agrees that will fall ) you can add federal recognition of same sex marrage.

Recognition of same sex marrage isnt the issue, it already is recognized, the issue is equal treatment, now both sides are trying to streach the issue, those supporting prop 8 want to extend the issue to recognition issues, and those opposed to prop 8 want to extend the issue to states other than california.

But the actual issue ( which is the only thing I expect them to actualy rule on ) is simpler. It is the issue that same sex marrage alrady exists in California, but new same sex couples don’t have the same rights.

We already know which way that will rule

They may chicken out… just toss the issue back to the state, but that is the same as overturning it, which the state judicial systme has alrady done and upheld by the highest corut in the state.

Let's take a refreshing break from Big D's angry ranting and raving!

Here's a little anecdote I wrote on a thread about British English-

Xavier Breath learns English. by Frankie Rizzo

This is a story of an Englishman going to an American service station to get some new windshield wiper blades.

He fills his tank with petrol and asks the dopey looking attendant with a patch on his shirt that says "Xavier B" for some windscreen wipers.

Xavier replies "Golly! What the hell is that for?" The Englishman answers "To wipe the rain off the windscreen." Xavier says "Windscreen? It's a windshield you dumbass Limey,'Mercans invented the car so it's called whatever we say it's called".

The Englishman replied, look jackass, we invented the language! Not only that but we invented windscreen wipers and patented them in 1911 so they are called whatever we say they are called!"

Xavier replied. "Sorry sir! Shall I wash your windshield now?" The Englishman said. "What a dipsh!t."

Xavier filed hate crime charges and won a civil suit for a million dollar settlement and that is why he now sits on his dopey ass and posts nonsense all day and night instead of pumping gas. The Englishman lost his million dollar fortune to Xavier and now he pumps gas at Xavier's old job.

The End.
