As Gay Marriage Heads To Court, A Look Back At The Bumpy Ride: NPR

Mar 22, 2013 | Posted by: Gay And Proud | Full story: www.npr.org

Gays and lesbians have adopted the phrase "it gets better" as a kind of slogan to assure young people that life won't always be so tough.

Looking back, life has gotten dramatically better for LGBT people in the United States in a very short period of time. The modern gay rights movement began less than 50 years ago. Today, supporters of same-sex marriage outnumber opponents.

Now, the Supreme Court is about to hear two big cases that could shift the landscape for gay rights again.

The reality remains that you are arguing tangential points, or in this post, not point at all; and you cannot indicate a single rational reason to deny equal protection.

If you had a valid point, you could do so.

I said you're a moron, that too is a valid point that you disagree with. I can't change your gay bias and wouldn't if I could. Being gay is your right if you so desire.

You can keep saying it. However the inverse will always be true so long as you argue against equal protection of the law for same sex couples to marry, but can't indicate any legitimate state interest served by such a restriction.

Why would I care what a loser who cannot support their own opinion with facts thinks?

Can you indicate a single state interest furthered by denying same sex couples the right to marry? I don't think you can.

MY name is Curt,I've said it many times. I bet you might have figured that out yourself. No one expects you to put personal info in line, no one is dumb enough to do that except FaFoxy.

I note you are STILL too afraid to register. Typical.

I don't register for any site. Period.
I've left some good ones that changed their policy.
Once again, you are as anonymous as I am. As I see it, there is no advantage or disadvantage by registering or not.

It would cut out the drive by shooters, so to speak, the ones who only come on here to make taunting remarks and then go running to giggle, like children ringing doorbells and hiding afterwards.

Really? They seem to have endless amounts of time to keep dreaming up new false names to log on under.

Wondering is truly a troll for the ages. Not a very bright one either, then again, trolls seldom are very bright.

This counts, you are paying attention to my posts. Trolling, but reading. You will because you can't help yourself.
