I am wrong where in my statement?
.
The argument should have always been the right of a society to regulate behavior.
.
If you can regulate a soda portion, why not sexual behavior?

The GOP's platform is regulation of other people's behavior but not their own.

Because humans have rights, sodas don't.

Both are based on an action by a human :).

I think this ruling presents an interesting opportunity to start knocking down 1,000's of laws and regulations. I mean, if DNA made gays do it, I can not understand why this same logic can not be applied to other situations.
.
I am not a Constitutional expert, but I can't help but think some smart, sharp lawyers couldn't use today's ruling to their advantage.
.
I mean, if a person is predisposed to hate blacks, who are you to say anything at all about it?

People aren't born hating other races. That is a learned behavior based on an ignorant environment. That can be changed with education. Being a homosexual cannot.

Big brother regulating soda portion is a fine example of what is WRONG with this country.(smart people would actually buy two sodas anyway)

Like you say, regulating sexual behavior is helpful for society. Like not running around naked and having sex in public places. Like not sexually forcing ones-self on another. Like not having/creating kiddy porn. Like not behaving sexually towards underage persons.

Freedom of association, however, is one of our most treasured freedoms. And how and with whom someone associates in the privacy of their own bedroom is their business.

Since the government gets involved in ANY marriage between two consenting individuals, it is discriminatory to prohibit any other two consenting individuals from likewise doing so.

Maybe the government should get out of the marriage business altogether??

No big shocker that you're not a constitutional expert, especially when you don't understand the difference of regulating a behavior which causes harm to oneself or others, and that which doesn't.

Anyone can get married, it's just that you can't get married to a member of the same gender because that is not marriage and never will be.

I do not have a strong opinion on gay marriage one way or another.
.
A society can set behavior based on common values. This is something that has happened since the first group of people formed the first community.
.
When these values get frustrated, problems in social cohesion arise. As a rule, when cohesion starts weakening, so do other aspects of society.
.
An example would be drug policy. Some feel there should be no drug laws what so ever. If a community has to deal with a bunch of zoned out drug addicts laying all over the street, many will feel the quality of life starts going down. In theory, a guy laying on the sidewalk is not harming anyone but himself so there should be no complaint. You do not like what you see, just step around them and move on.

So.....Gays marrying is going to lead to people becoming homeless drug addicts?

Wrong yet again. Same gender couples CAN get married in 13 states & DC.

There are several behaviors that are built in and I think from my experience racial hate in some individuals is "built in". Purely an emotional reaction, no logic behind it.
.
It would not surprise me at all at some point in the future the experts will find a hate gene.

Your point was you're not a constitutional expert or even vaguely familiar with it.

I agree with you completely.

Btw, if you're dumb enough to work as a coal miner, then you get what you deserve.
