Sorry KiMare, the truth is an absolute defense against defamation.

Did you mean ad hominem, or were you suffering from the delusion that you were being clever?

How's that search for a compelling governmental interest served by denying same sex couples the right to marry going?

Marriage it is a fundamental right of the individual. That includes "All persons".

The only eligibility requirement for fundamental rights is being human.

Reasonable restrictions may be made only when a compelling and legitimate governmental interest can withstand judicial scrutiny. Most can agree with the courts that reasonable restrictions include age, ability to demonstrate informed consent, and not being closely related or currently married.

While churches may place any restrictions they choose on their own ceremonies, the government can only restrict fundamental rights when a compelling and legitimate justification can be demonstrated.

Procreation ability has never been a requirement for marriage, and therefore fails as a legitimate qualification. Yet even that irrational excuse for discrimination ignores the fact that gay people can and do reproduce, and are raising children either biologically related or adopted. Denial of equal treatment under the law provides nothing to opposite sex couple families. It only harms same sex couple families needlessly.

Gay couples are seeking to be treated equally under the laws currently in effect, in the remaining states that do not yet recognize their marriages.

Neither tradition nor gender provides a legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of this fundamental right.

Within those limits, gay people qualify.

You really are a moron. Legal marriage does not have a procreative requirement, and you look like an idiot when you make posts like this. Either you are ignorant of the law, stupid, or more likely both.

KiMare your an idiot, your not even fighting for your own rights. Why don't you fight for something that will actually affect your life? You should just stop and take a break from the Internet. I mean all your conversations that you contribute to on topixs is about gay marriage -_- really, I mean why do you feel so strongly that we can't be equal. I bet if you were gay you would sure as hell want to be able to have a marriage. You wouldn't just accept that because you can't reproduce you can't have a marriage. Any person wether gay or not can hold their wedding vows.

Who has no argument except dopey ad hominem? Mona and Jizzy!

When we cut through all your anger and bullsh!t, I support marriage equality and you and Jizzy do not. You are hypocrites.

P.S. Gangs of roving young men high on testosterone wreaking havoc while searching for wives! Too funny! Post some more silly stuff like that, Jizzy gets off on it. Thinks you're a genius. And it makes me laugh.

You and Mona have such great arguments against marriage equality, but you still haven't swayed me, I still think it's the right thing to do. Even for people you don't like.

You will just have to suck it up like the bigots against same sex marriage did. Polygamy will not hurt you. Marriage is good for society. All marriages, even ones you don't approve of because of your ignorance and simple minds.

You'll probably never be offended by the sight of a happy poly family, calm down and live and let live.
