Stop messing with the homosexual perverts. There are multiple matters about their lifestyle and behavior destructive to a civilized society. Make their behaviors illegal as they've been for thousands of years. Make their propaganda illegal. Make their indoctrination of our children illegal. Make all of their negative impact on civilization illegal and their fake marriages will become a moot issue.

Another ban bites the dust.

That makes 23 favorable rulings in a row.

Is this really what Americans want for themselves and their children? A nation has gone off the deep end to put up with this kind of insanity... lots of pics... you'll love it! Canada... infected with the American marijuana dweebs and cowards.

Do you have proof that marriage is a behavior destructive to society? Every study I have seen says otherwise.

Of course. Parents of gay kids want them to be able to be happy and productive, and be able to make all the same types of good choices that other children can make. Gay parents who choose to marry want the celebration of public commitment, and the added security for their kids.

And every other parent wants their children to value family and commitment, even when it is displayed by others, whether they ever choose to marry or not, themselves.

All good things.

In typical gay fashion, you conflate the issue by not referring to a specific form of marriage, therefor erroniously equating gay marriage to straight marriage. Then, in typical gay fashion, you refer to some nonexistant "studies".

Real marriage isn't. Homo-marriage is very destructive. It's destructiveness is quite evident everywhere you look today.
Ah, then you must have proof of this claim. Please provide the links to your stats and studies. Thanks.

And why are so kids turning gay today?...
You are a little confused. No one can "turn gay". Goodness, can you imagine a 12-14 year old with the contro to completely cchange from being only attracted to the opposite gender to being only attracted to the same gender?

Silly stuff. You would know that if you had kids.

No. What is happening is that kids are becoming less and less afraid to admit that they are gay. And this is a very positive thing. Can you image the heartbreak to all concerned when a child is forced to pretend they are something they are not?

So, rest assured. No one can turn gay, but gay folks are stepping up, and out, and leading happy and fulfilling lives. For some, that includes marriage. Learn to live with it.

There is only one kind of marriage. The legal kind.

Can you prove that the genders involved in any given marriage determine it's success?

Good luck with that.

You're self-deluded. Recent in-depth psychological research show adult victims of fake homosexual "marriage" are permanently damaged by the experience. Homosexuals send constant signals to the children to reflect the "parent's" distorted views of normality, not only assimilated, but a constant hum drum of expectations restricting normal development. The adult survivors resent it. Homosexuals do not allow children to have a childhood.

No, Dear, I'm sane and happily married, quite unlike yourself.

So, provide the links to the proof of your claims. Prove that marriage, commitment, and marriage harms folks. Good luck with that.

SCOTUS may never have to take a case like this because if all of the federal district courts, and all of the federal appeals courts, continue to rule in our favor, then those courts will legalize marriage equality in every jurisdiction in the U.S.
Leaving nothing for SCOTUS to decide.
That's looking more possible every day.

The 7th circuit ordered Indiana to recognize the marriage of one of the couples in the case there, even though they stayed the rest of the judge's ruling.

To me that indicates the 7th is likely to eventually uphold the judge's ruling on appeal.

FYI, the 7th circuit is dominated 7-3 by conservative republican judges.

Lets be factual here, for THOUSANDS of years as depicted in Egyptian art, homosexuality has existed since the beginning of the human race!! While I do not believe it is an ideal lifestyle, when someone is born this way it is not a right of others to discriminate against them. Just as you would not discriminate against someone for having a physical or mental difference. We are in the 21st century and extensively educated all the while still having those close minded ignorant people making comments such as yours!

He knows all the gays in his "pray away the gay" therapy class. Of course none of them would be a couple or have any kids. That would not be good for conversion therapy. Isn't it amazing that there are still some people who believe you can change your sexual orientation? Especially when there is zero evidence for it ever having been successful.
