A federal judge in California has knocked down the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, ruling Wednesday that the state's controversial Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

Are you trying to argue that there are not 18,000 legally married and recognized same sex couples in California today?
Wrong! Go study and come back
The voters of the state of California twice voted to define marriage as a union of one man AND one woman. All those same sex marriages should not have legally taken place.

Yes and if you put it on the ballot today ( or the next election if the SC gets it wrong ) prop 8 would go down in a landslide.

That isnít the point, I could get a majority of brown eyed people to vote to deny blue eyed people the vote and get it to pass, It would then be overturned and unconstitutional, just as prop 8 will

We are not a pure democracy, we are also a republic, it is the rule of law, not the rule of the mob.

You guys keep saying that.

Fact is, 31 States have a Constitutional ban on same sex marriage, that is only 7 States shy of a US Constitutional Amendment.

Just keep that in mind, 7 more states and it won't matter what the SCOTUS has to say about the matter.

That's right. And his solution to the issue? "If it happened once, it should happen again.", while at other times, he reviles living in the past. Psychotic, eh?

More nutz...
You claim that the same people, that only yesterday (relatively speaking) voted for define marriage as "one man/one woman", have now undergone a major change of heart, and all will now vote opposite to how they voted, only a couple of years ago? Was something put into the water? Or, are you that confident that the vote is being "handled"? By the "proper" counters? You know the ones that I mean, the vote changers? The ones that add up all the votes for Romney, and then declare Obammy the winner "by a landslide"?

Proof? I usually have no shortage of proof, to back up my claims, as when I displayed the hypocrisy of "X-ed-out", when he called me paranoid, remember that? He said that I was paranoid for saying that this site is operated by biased moderators, then I pointed out how VV gets to type the words "f**ked up" without having to use 2, count them, 2, asterisks, whilst I must edit my posts for those same words? Remember that? Proof? I have made many posts that contained all sorts of rational arguments against what is happening, but I get banned for making good arguments. I have made many non-insulting posts, to many in here, and still I get called "a hater who does nothing but call names" by you, who has obviously not read many of my posts, else, you'd not make such a silly and inane claim. Grow up, sonnie. You're just a chump, and if you believe that being a shadow of Chongo is an honor, you're more addled than I thought.

Is that, um , that something that a "drunken loser who has missed the train" should learn from? So as not to be an "elitist hater"?

Marriage has always been a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. You are not 'updating' it, you are undefining it.
Why don't ss couples have the courage and integrity to establish their own defined relationship? Instead, you insult intelligence by demanding everyone equate duplicate sterile couples with marriage.
Societal health has suffered dramatically with the demise of marriage commitment. Children are paying the greatest cost. You want to further that decline with a radical dilution of marriage and family.
Not undefining it but REdefining it. Not to replace entirely but to broaden the definition to include everybody. It may have started out as predominately a cross cultural restraint on evolutionary mating behavior but in the modern day it is so much more; else infertile or old couples would not be allowed to marry. It isn't All about breeding; it's also about companionship, tax benefits, legal simplicity when it comes to such things as Wills, next of kin statements... and so on. Why should a marriage Only be about having children, and why should it Only be a man and a woman. In the strictest definition neither you or I would be allowed to marry. And as already said people of whatever sexuality definition of a couple are having children, by whatever means, outside of marriage so the idea of marriage constraining their behaviour is not happening. Exactly how does it harm heterosexual marriage to allow same sex marriage or to redefine a couple as 'two people' not one man and one woman?
