How can the SCOTUS agree with codifying discrimination based on nothing but naked animus toward a minority group? How can they possibly justify Prop 8? HOW? And what about the standing question? Does SCOTUS really think that 'Protect Marriage' has standing in this case?...a case the Governor and State Attorney General refused to defend?

If a law is irrationally discriminatory, and harmful to you, or your family, of course you will protest it in any legal way. And you will keep fighting it until that law is changed.

Any sane person would.

Oh, you mean like Biblical marriage? Where a man could rape a woman, and then marry her? Or where a man could justifiably schtup his slave? Or where a man could have multiple wives?

Your "one man, one woman" tirade is loathsome and tiring. Please do us all a favor and answer Jesus' call.

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Gay unions are a violent, defective contradiction on fundamental evolutionary principles.

There, no religion.

Now it's not just religion, but science that's judgmental!

Things change. If you haven't learned that yet, you have lived for nothing. You're just a scared old man/woman/whatever the fuck you think you are. You feel powerless and bitter. Textbook case.

Since you claim to be a "spiritual person..." do you know the serenity prayer? Perhaps you could benefit from a few years of chanting it.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Sweet pea, your Alzheimer's is kickin' in again. Marriage HAS changed many, many, many, many times over the years.

The Supreme Court has the right to decide that MY equal rights are being denied. You'll never like it, but I rather enjoy the fact that it'll gnaw at you from the inside like a worm.

Why do you keep perpetuating the lie that marriage is for women and children?

Aside from validating my comments about evolutionary mating behavior, this new study is an explanation of how and why homosexuality is a genetic defect.

"Different genes are involved in the development of genitals, reproductive organs, body shape, sexual orientation and every other trait where genes shape sexual differentiation. And so epi-marks to these different genes will have different influences on those traits.

Mostly, these kinds of epi-marks should not be passed from parent to offspring. But occasionally some are. And when the epi-marks on genes that effect sexual orientation get passed from father to daughter then some traits that would normally develop in female-specific ways end up more masculinized. Likewise mother-son transmission of epi-marks can result in the feminization of some traits that would normally develop in a more masculinized fashion."

Congrats on finding a study that you think validates your narrow-minded view.

FYI, you really out to learn how to copy a link; that one's dead.

If you think our country looks wierd now, just
wait in abt. 15 to 20 yrs. Oh, yea, we will
be the laughting stock of the world, most don't
take us serious now, wonder why?? Oh, just give
it a little thought. Nothing new under the sun,
its happened before, We just choose to forget and
now it will be repeated. We alway think we are smarter, when we are not. Its not hard work to
become dumb, no matter how hard some want us to
believe they aren't....Laughtable no, just dumb

No, honey. Your incorrigibility is one of those things that cannot change.

Deny reality all you like.
