Brian, don't be an idiot. The question before the court was not whether marriage consisted of a husband and wife, but rather if there was a state interest served by denying individuals of different races from marrying. The decision in no way precludes same sex marriage, because it addresses an entirely separate question.Don't blame me if you don't like what you read. The facts exist, when the US Supreme Court decided Loving v Virginia, they decided for husband/wife marriage.
Brian, gender was the the issue before the court, race was. If you weren't an idiot, you would understand that.Don't blame me if you don't like what you read. The facts exist, when the US The Lovings were male/female, the court didn't decide any races may marry regardless of gender. Their decision is clear; precedent, law and impartial justice is the standard, not sympathy for an oppressed victim group to make restitution for past errors.
Brian, I am not the one arguing for fellow citizens to be classified as second class citizens with less than equal protection of the law. You are a bald faced liar if you claim that is not your position. You wish to exclude same sex couples from marriage.^^^These are all untrue, there's nothing wrong about the US Constitution. The only poster mentioning hating it is lides, he loves defamation. There is no gender equality right in the Constitution and it recognizes male and female as different, just as child/adult and citizen/noncitizen are different groups.
Brian, have you come up with a compelling governmental interest served by denying same sex couples the right to marry? If not, such a restriction is unconstitutional, and your argument is without foundation.There is equality in marriage now, as long as you can find a single mate of the opposite sex who consents to marry. Sure, that's unfair to polygamists, homosexuals, the ugly, pedophiles and rapists but that's how the cookie crumbles. You can't please everyone not everyone should expect to marry. Let's be realistic, not confuse equality with freedom. The government can't make everybody equal, no matter how much koolaid you drink.
No, you hate freedom, and don't wish for others to be able to make their own choices. You wish to project your moral views onto others, but can't offer any compelling governmental interest served by denying same sex couples the right to marry that would render such a restriction constitutional, and prove that you are not a complete imbecile.Freedom is what I love, I relish the fact every homosexual may cohabit as they please, as long as partners consent. What they can't do is impose the view of sex segregated marriage on everybody else, without their consent. Religious same sex marriage is legal in every state. If you want a religious same sex marriage, I say God bless. It's perfectly legal to travel to a jurisdiction that permits same sex marriage for your ceremony.
