Gay marriage

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering two controversial cases involving whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry: Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on gay marriage, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which since 1996 has defined marriage for federal purposes as a union between a man and a woman.

If it is a 'right', why would there be any laws against any concept of any marriage???
Because the mere existance of a law does not make the law constitutional.

thankfully we are a secular state and religious cult teachings play no part in the making of our laws.

we have many restrictions on our rights. felons cannot own guns, but that is a right, is it not? felons cannot vote in many states, yet that is a right. you have the right to free speech, but that also has certain restrictions on it.
if you actually knew enough about your own country, you wouldn't look so foolish when you post your crap!
EXACTLY! The government has the power to 'restrict' certain things...what types of 'marriages' it recognizes....thank you for proving my point....

Actually, it does answer your question.
The existing laws banning same sex marriage violate the 14th Amendment. You should read it some time.

yes. and i gave you clear, real world examples of those restrictions on your rights.

oops wrong quote..it happens.

what does not happen in a rational mind is denying the facts in front of you, like you do.

how can you say that rights cannot be restricted when i gave you positive proof of such restrictions? you cannot be mentally stable to lie to yourself like that.

NO, you don't have a legal right. God said, NO, whether the sodomites like it or not. There is a Judgment Day where we all will have to give an account. NO, MEANS NO, and God doesn't care if we are offended and disagree. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, died for you, me and the whole wide world to save us from ourselves and the tricks of the devil or Satan (Lucifer). Our sin was nailed to the cross; Jesus Christ took that condemnation on himself to SAVE US. How precious is that love! After Good Friday we can say, as we do every year, HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN, INDEED! God bless you, gay person. May your eyes be opened to the TRUTH! http://nosamesexmarriage.com/marriage/bible_v...
God doesnt lie, you blasphemer. God tells the truth as he sees it and that is why he was cast out by the old gods and sentn here where he rules us and where we should accept his grace and love and august anger. Do not think too much.OBEY GOD or suffer his upset and disappointment and when he is through with that he will be mad as hell and wont take it.

The fact gay marriage is not legalised is an embarassment and one day we'll all have to explain to our grandchildren why it was never allowed the same why our grandparents had to explain civil rights to us. The church is being given far too much lee-way on this one. Found a brilliant blog post on the topic: http://tricksntangles.wordpress.com/2013/04/0...
