Gay marriage

There are 61385 comments on the Los Angeles Times story from Mar 28, 2013, titled Gay marriage. In it, Los Angeles Times reports that:

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering two controversial cases involving whether same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry: Proposition 8, California's 2008 ban on gay marriage, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which since 1996 has defined marriage for federal purposes as a union between a man and a woman.

This NATION is STILL great and why should I have to marry a man just to follow the cult of heterosexalism? I'm NOT attracted to men and therefore if marriage is TRULY a Fundamental right, then I SHOULD be the one to decide who I want to share my life with, which does include marrying!!!

Guess what Bruno, the Blacks had to do the same thing to get the rights they deserved as well and white folks used the same crap then as folks are using against Gays and Lesbians.......if lawsuits is what it takes to get our rights......then so be it!

Do you know of Mumia Abu-Jamal?
Government is individuals. All of them are KKKristians. Which ones do you trust? They are all criminals and they could care less what you want. You want lower taxes right? What politician has lowered them?
Actually, I really don't care about taxes.
Obama should go about removing every mention of marijuana in Federal Law.

Yes we will have to disagree. I believe discrimination is so horrible we can not trust Government with trying to solve it. They make everything they touch worse.
When I say government can be part of the solution, I mean (and I know we have to agree to disagree on this) it's good that's it's illegal for a landlord to tell me he doesn't have an apartment for me in Westwood, but he does have one "South of Adams", or for any business owner to refuse to let me into a restaurant, rent me a hotel room, give me a ride in a taxi, etc, etc, because of my race.
I don't care about the character of the people who passed those laws.

I disagree with the statement that government makes everything worse. When I was growing up, there were no required smog checks, and some days we'd have "smog alerts", those days the air would burn your lungs. I think it's good people now have to have their cars checked, even though it cuts down on their liberty. Again, I don't care about the character of the people who passed those laws, and I think government regulation was the only practical solution to the problem.

No, you haven't. You have only emphasized your personal bias. Let's try again (because I know you can't answer this, so it's fun for me.)
Your attempt to distinguish two lesbians, one who is artificially inseminated to a wife of a husband who is artificially inseminated, to support your own immoral bias is transparent and pitiful.
LOL,

First, YOU are the one trying to equate a rare exception in marriage to lesbian couples (throwing gay couples under the bus in doing so) regarding artificial insemination.

You diverted from the normal and fair comparison between marriage where procreation is the norm, and marrage, where procreation is completely impossible.

However, using your rare exception attempt, you now claim that I am immorally biased because I distinguish between artificial insemination that gives a child a father and mother, and one that gives a child a mother and a step mother while deliberately depriving a child of a father. Something that I not only think should be criminal, but is diabolically evil. It is sad enough when a child loses a father or mother by accident, but to deliberately do so is pure evil.

Two bald assertions, both predicated upon a term that has no legal existence or socio-anthropological meaning.

If it feels good DO IT.
Funny thing is there are consequences
I guess you don't realize how stupid that sounds.

Are you implying that gay people live by "if it feels good DO IT?"

If that's the case, what do you think feels so good about gay sex vs. straight sex? Do you think gay sex feels better? Stupid hick.

If that's the case, why do we want to get married? Why don't we just screw? Stupid hick.

And what are the consequences? My life is quite blessed. But you go ahead and find consequences. Good luck.

I am a man approaching my mid-40's who has been married almost 7 years and runs a business. What "feels good" these days is soaking my aching back in the hot tub. What are the consequences, dummy?

You're a mess and a joke. Try getting accurate information instead of just talking stupid. You have no substance. You're just a pest.

In what way is "rare exception" relevant?

Answer: it is not.

And of two lesbians, neither is a stepmother. They are both mothers.

It's sad that you cling to the propaganda that a child is "deprived" without a father and a mother. You need to believe that so badly so you feel special or something?

Bazillions of kids have grown up without a mother or a father, or without their natural mother or father, or without either their natural mother or father.

If they are thrown to the streets, sure, that could affect them. But if they have one or two loving, competent parents, they have just as much chance of being fine as any other family.

And any other family has just as much chance of being screwed up.

Your arguments are desperate flailing.

You still can't explain the original question. Failure.
