Absolutely, assuming of course there is no compelling state interest served by such a restriction. Thus far,y ou have never been able to indicate one.
There is one, some courts have stated such, but u don't agree with it.
First find me some gay people who share your position. You once made this claim, but it turned out that the couple in question objected only to the vocabulary, not the legal ramifications, which rather sullied your point.
Nooooooo...it didn't. They want the protection, but not the name, which they feel should be reserved for the male female union only.
No, anyone arguing for fellow citizens to be held as second class citizens with less than equal protection of the law is worthy of the term.
I advocate everyone should b in first class. C'mon in, find yourself a person of the opposite sex, and join the institute of marriage.
Reeducation would imply that one had been educated in the first place, which is clearly not the case with you. Run along, brother Jim has some Kool-aide for you.
Reeducation is for those who don't agree with the prevailing leftist orthodoxy that marriage should be redefined, but only for them.

Modern science has found that the genetic risks of inbreeding are small. Besides, procreation has nothing to do with marriage right Jiz? Right! Get with the program Jiz! It's the 21st century for chrissakes.

So why can't I marry my brother? We can't have kids, no risk there.

OK tough guy! You think all that stuff over, maybe you'll be less of a bigot and hypocrite. You will be a little less ignorant.

That's an easy one! Because JBird is an ignorant hypocrite.

He's all for marriage "equality" except for people he doesn't approve of because they're icky.

The progressive bible is just another bible. Says in there that you have tolerance and diversity, but you don't Jiz. You are against marriage quality for people you think are icky.

It seems to be one of those fair weather fundies, who wants to distance itself from its cult if pressed.

Make us... You can't do anything about us. I'm sure that makes your little pea-brain want to implode.

You be sure to keep a light on for us, because we're coming to a neighborhood near you real soon.

Yup. That's Jbird. He'll come back with another sock soon. Act like nothing happened and he's new.

I love his new registered profile "Frankie Rizz0". I'm in that dope's head real bad. I could rent out space.

Yeah, badass, I'm putting your GLAAD bible verse militancy right back in your face and you can't take it.

How about a little shock value, Brucie? I'm calling your kind what it is, with no fear, and there's nothing you can do about it.

You make so little sense when you get riled up. What is GLAAD bible verse militancy? Where is your "shock value"? I certainly don't see you as particularly shocking. That's all in your head, bub.

<quoted text>Actually, you are not bright at all. Based on your argument, then the CSSC never should have granted SSM in California because the issue had been previously addressed in 2002. In fact, the CSSC was aware of the Prop 8 initiative when it granted a temporary right for gays to marry between June 2008 and Nov. 2008. So, the CSSC was always a temporary ruling, which was set to be decided on Nov. 4, 2008.
Before you step up to this plate, you need to stop feeding from pig trough's, because I only serve gourmet facts.
Even your name smells of your ignorance. It should be "Not too Bright Are You". It must suck when your ignorance is on display before you even post a comment.
That'd be Old SniffButts Billy. aka $3 Bill. He's not "to" smart.

"To" funny!
