About as much as being of the same sex has anything to do with the ability of a man and a man to accept each other as husband and husband, be recognized as husband and husband by the state, interact as husband and husband, including but not limited to consummating their marriage through the first act sexual intimacy.
The understanding of marriage constantly evolves.
Husbane and husbane? consumitating the marriage. Ain't that a cracker jack? Naw, the understanding of marriage don't evolves. What you thank that marriage is is evolving in your mind. Just as I ben riting on here. Them homeysexuals is thanking if marriage between two lesbanes and gays is thought of as just another marriage then the normal people is going to thank that the homeysexuals is just as normal as ever body else. They ain't.

Yes indeedie they dose. They sells them thangs in Walmart what you put on your doo whacky so you won't git no disease and if you uses one on a woman you probably won't start a baby. Some wants to go bare back. If it is a gay, then if either one of them has aids he is more likely to get or give it. Putting your thang up somebody's butt can make both the thang and the butt bleed. When you squirt that stuff in a bleeding butt you can give Aids. So be careful.

Little Boy Blue, I ain't sure about this hear being born a homeysexual or the other way. I has nowed sissy boys what ain't grown up gays and he man boys what is now a gay. I thanks that a feller can be influenced to be a gay and maybe even to be a normal. If a young kid is messed with by gay feller he mite like what it feels like when the gay feller plays with it or dose the mouth thang. He may decide to try it out. Some of these womens can mess with a boy's mind when he is growing up so that he don't no part of any other woman. Then there could be a boy what thinks that he likes other boys but meets a girl and finds out that he reilly digs her. I thanks that this becoming a gay is more complicated than just thanking that a feller is born one way.

The salient feature distinguishing same-sex weddings from heterosexual ones is the sexual orientation of its participants. Only same-sex couples engage in same-sex weddings. Therefore, it makes little sense to argue that refusal to provide a cake to a same-sex couple for use at their wedding is not “because of” their sexual orientation.
Summary
The undisputed facts show that Respondents discriminated against Complainants because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage, in violation of § 24-34-601(2), C.R.S. Moreover, application of this law to Respondents does not violate their right to free speech or unduly abridge their right to free exercise of religion. Accordingly, Complainants’ motion for summary judgment is GRANTED.

I tells you this Sweet Evening Breeze: You is squeeling for what you calls your rites. I agrees you should git them. I ain't got no problem with two gays pairing up with all them rites of a normal couple what marries. But the pairing up of hetrosexuals and homeysexuals is diffarant. There needs to be diffarant ceremony. That is all. Now about this cake business. You wants your rites but you wants keep the cake man form having his rites. You don't want your shair of the marbles you want all of them. Ain't that a hoot.

It is naive to think if there are no laws, there will be peace.
What is more likely is people will take things into their own hands. The bakery that won't serve African Americans will be picketed, harrassed, etc. Good luck avoiding fist fights and what not.
Same with a bakery that won't serve gay people. They probably shouldn't have windows on the building, because they'll have lots of bricks thrown through them.
Lack of a law enforcing equality doesn't neutralize resentment; it feeds it.
Wrong on every point.

it's only 20 minutes long. Please watch it. Then you will understand what anarchy really is.

Of course I know that. I'm just wondering why Rose never insults you for abusing exclamation points. Just sayin'. More to her than to you. But she's not speaking to me. Ah good times! You'll probably stop speaking to me soon too.

Nope, gays & lesbians are able to exercise their right to marry someone of the same or opposite sex based on being citizens entitled to equal protection- not based on their sexual orientation.
You contradicted yourself.
Heterosexuals are able to exercise their right to marry someone of the same or opposite sex as well.
Again, you contradicted yourself.
Bisexuals are able to exercise their right to marry someone of the same or opposite sex as well.
Apparently their sexual orientation is included in the marquee, just for show.
Sexual orientation has nothing to do with the right to marry someone of the same sex.
Sure it does, otherwise, why change the law, why redefine marriage?
But sexual orientation DID have a lot do to with the BANS on marrying someone of the same sex.
No bans existed. The definition of marriage as a union of one man and one woman, as it had existed in this country since before the birth of the Republic, was constitutionally defined at the state level.
That's where the animus came into play.
It started with four judges in Massachusetts deciding to overturn the understanding of marriage in American marital jurisprudence.

No, they "married" someone of the same sex.

Meaning what exactly?

Ohhhhhhh......sure....and what might that be? Don't forget to use birth control.....unless of course you want to get pregnant on you wedding night.

The two basic ingredients, male female, stays constant.

Norcal has the rainbow card so she is immune to Rose_NoHo's scolding. You see, only the dreaded fundies and straights are dumb when they abuse exclamation points like a tweeny girl. It's cool if you're gay.
