You need to give them up because Obama and Fienstein said they are bad. If you don't they will kick you out of the Donkey Union.
BTW - It sounds like you should be charged with a hate crime.

KAGAN - No, really, because if the couple I can just assure you, if both the woman and the man are over the age of 55, there are not a lot of children coming out of that marriage.

Some idiot they were interviewing on NPR yesterday was wringing his hands over how 'untried' gay marriage was, and,'oh, we don't know what will happen, it's an experiment, better be cautious, if we just give these people the right to marry ANYTHING could happen,' etc. etc.

It's marriage, dumbasses. We KNOW how marriage works. Gay people have had long-term relationships for millenia, though they've often had to hide from persecution. This isn't "new" or "experimental," it's about huaman rights and equal protection under the Constitution.

Scalia's so god-damned dumb and religious bigted he probably thinks Catholic law supercedes equal protection under AMERICAN law.

They ignore, or don't know, that only until about 150 years ago, marriage was ANYTHING but romantic and hearts and flowers.

It was usually a business deal, a way to get or keep property and money in selected families. Or, a political ploy, to get influence or stop wars or invasions. Sometimes new born infants were "engaged" to some other infant when they both came of age. In some cultures, the bride and groom never even MET until their wedding day.

The whole frilly candy box of weddings of today is a new thing in world history.

How about Clarence Thom-ass who has sat on his huge behind and only said ONE sentence in his 20+ years on the bench, and that was a lame ass joke. Thank you, Prez. Reagan, for that fine jurist.

Can you IMAGINE when Scaly-ia lets loose his big pasta farts under his robes on the bench? It must blow out behind him like a sail on a ship on the high seas. I pity anyone else nearby!

Jesus..you're probably dumb enough to think there are gay trees. Is that why you're always rubbing up against them when you and your boyfriend go out on a picnic? Doesn't that make him jealous?

LOL

They can hang "Little Trees" air fresheners, the kind they sell in car washes, under their robes.

I'm always skeptical of predicting Court decisions, but this was interesting:

"The question is whether or not the federal government under a federalism system has the authority to regulate marriage," Justice Kennedy said during oral arguments...

Exactly.
