Historical backlash leads to harm for homosexuals and heterosexual alike. Same sex marriage is like our daughters, sisters, mother and wives in front line combat. There is no gender equality right in the Constitution.

Yes there is, the 14th Amendment.
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

I'm going to get a good laugh at you every time you start foaming at the mouth at women in combat. You hate gays, you hate women. Who do you like?

And we have yet to see how allowing gay people to participate under the laws currently in effect changes the marriages of straight people.
Maybe that's why Brian_G's marriage broke up?

The equal protections clause of the 5th amendment is also gender neutral. So that makes two amendments that require equal protections for all persons, not just straight white men.

"Had those who drew and ratified the Due Process Clauses of the Fifth Amendment or the Fourteenth Amendment known the components of liberty in its manifold possibilities, they might have been more specific. They did not presume to have this insight. They knew times can blind us to certain truths and later generations can see that laws once thought necessary and proper in fact serve only to oppress. As the Constitution endures, persons in every generation can invoke its principles in their own search for greater freedom." (Justice Kennedy in Lawrence.)

It's already there in the 5th and 14th amendments, and the 19th. Some simply refuse to see.

“These matters, involving the most intimate and personal choices a person may make in a lifetime, choices central to personal dignity and autonomy, are central to the liberty protected by the Fourteenth Amendment. At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.”

You don't just get to add stuff like 'gender equality' to the constitution. The Equal Rights Amendment failed ratification. The 14th Amendment explicitly lists different rights for males and females.

There will be backlash in prisons if same sex marriage becomes law. If you care about homosexuals, keep marriage male/female.

Sigh... smh

The gender disparity for counting voters in the 14th was nullified by the 19th amendment.

The 5th and 14th amendments require equal treatment for all persons. That includes women.

Segregation and apartheid are ways of keeping people apart and denying equal treatment under the law.

Marriage equality brings people together and expands equal treatment. It is the opposite of segregation and apartheid.

Equal treatment for "all persons" is require by the 5th and 14th amendments, and promised in the founding documents.

Treating all persons equally does not restrict freedom, it expands it.

That's pure babble.
You are just a homophobe trying to make his objection to equal rights sound reasonable.
You are a bigot and a dishonest coward.
At least the "Die! Gays! Die!" type of bigot has the honesty to express the real reason they are against gay marriage.

No, it doesn't, you filthy lair.
Why bother with that lie when anybody can check?

No need for the ERA, the 14th Amendment says,
"nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

And your "forced prison marriage" has got to be the stupidest "argument" against gay marriage yet. Did you sit around thinking, "Wait! I can come up with something even dumber!"?

<quoted text>your summary is at least entertaining as it really does hit the nail on the head. however i doubt that the fundamentalists had anything to do with the RSV. i'm trying to think of at least one "fundamentalist" who supported the rsv. can't come up with any.
If you can locate the 'bible committee list' of the 32 fundies who rewrote the Authorized King James Version to create the St. Jerome's Day RSV version; you won't have to work from memory. Keep in mind that the 32 fundies didn't work all at the same time; but rather they worked at different stages over the 15-year period of the project
.
The project was started in 1937 when fundamentalism was a type of superstition used in scary radio programs. Fundamentalism first appeared in organized religion with the introduction of the Revised Standard Version NEW Testament in 1946
.
Here is a bit of info about the original source of the 'Fundamentals'; a set of tracts that were handed out on street corners in New York City prior to World War I. Even though it is from the dailykos; the story jives with Wiki and other assorted historic accounts

That's a laugh; same sex couples don't deal with accidental pregnancy, miscarriages and births. Same sex couples don't have abortions.

Gender segregation marriage is inferior to gender integration marriage because diversity is the spice of life.
