Most marriage license forms require a male and female designation, once again proving that the natural state of marriage is between man and woman.

Except for all those states (9 and counting) which don't require a male & female designation, proving that the natural state of marriage is changing once again.

The Supreme Court needs to rule against the gay "rights" activists telling them that they shouldn't try to manipulate the court system to try to get what they want.

The Supreme Count isn't supposed to rule on the Constitutionality of laws?

I say let all of these carpetmunchers and fudgepackers get "married" to each other 'till the cows come home.
Schedule these "weddings" to occur simultaneously with dozens of other homosexual "weddings" in very large outdoor open areas - all in downrange target areas.

That's because there may currently be 5 bigots on the SCOTUS who will rule against our fundamental right no matter what the constitution says.

That's the ONLY reason some of us are concerned with pushing this issue to THIS particular SCOTUS.

If we had a 5-4 solid liberal majority on the court then we'd have no worries whatsoever. It would be a slam dunk. But until that day comes (hopefully when Scalia and/or Kennedy die or retire) we need to be careful which cases we push and which we wait on.
