Gay marriage

There are 60846 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.

Amazing though, mid 19th century, NYC, Civil War era, black men married white women, and SURPRISE, made mixed race babies. Now who should those off spring, once they became of age, be allowed to marry? They're half black/half white...others of mixed white/black race? Only black people?
Why this took place a hundred years before the Virginia ban. When did SSM become legal....2004?
There's no rationality to bigotry.

Just the the legal experts you agree with, you mean.
All the legal experts agree same-sex couples have the right to marry; the only disagreement if WHEN will the last ban preventing us from exercising that right be overturned.

I have an argument. Polygamy should be allowed because everyone should get equal protection of the law. Even those creepy polygamists.
Now it's your turn. That's how this works unless you're a troll, troll.
Gay and Lesbians, you are now considered the "norm" and have equal protection under the law. How about helping your brothers and sisters who are seeking the same, instead of mocking them? This could be part of your lasting legacy of liberation of institutional bigotry.

Equal protection of the law only applies to those similarly situated.

Polygamous groups aren't similarly situated to couples; therefore equal protection of marriage laws for couples doesn't apply.

My brothers and sisters are opposed to polygamy & incest.

This is a perfectly good marriage equality forum. Perhaps if you would get on topic and tell us why polygamy shouldn't be allowed instead of just reciting dumb schoolyard ad hominem it would be a much better marriage equality forum.
But you prefer to troll. And hurl dopey insults.
"Polygamy shouldn't be allowed because Frankie really doesn't think it should be allowed, he's lying." Priceless.
GET AN ARGUMENT.
Obviously our argument is working just fine, since we've gained 8 more states and 4 more countries, all the while keeping polygamy & incest illegal in all 50 states.

Yep, our argument is just fine.

Your's apparently needs some tweaking if you ever hope to legalize incest & polygamy.

LOL. You just post your fantasies.

Anyone keeping count of the amount of times this idiot keeps using the same old lines? I mean, the woman claims to have a graduate degree in something (although nobody can imagine what) yet can't seem to post anything but the same lame lines comment after comment.

Say, Rose, you need to file a suit against that place that gave you your bullshit graduate degree (in God knows what). Graduate students are supposed to sound like graduate students not high school dropouts.

Actually we DON'T currently have equal protection under the law, otherwise we'd be able to marry in all 50 states, and have our marriages recognized by all 50 states. We also wouldn't be able to be fired or be denied service at a business just for being gay,.

So while we are making solid progress, we've got a ways to go yet before we have full equal protection under the law.

And there you have it...
We were talking about men in penis suits and this fellow -- Dusty Mangina -- thinks they should be allowed to teach school. The point here is this is the mentality we'll soon have in every classroom in America if the insanity continues. It's the direction these people are taking -- "There's not a single thing wrong with a man in a penis suit marching down Main Street."
Say, Dusty, how about the guy in bottomless chaps who let's his "top" lead him down Main Street on a dog leash?
Would you let him teach school too?
If the woman with her boobs hanging out during Mardi Gras can teach school, then why not?

Free speech is a constitutional right.

So you're anti-American as well as anti-gay.

Well, that's just it, isn't it, Einstein?

Women who flash their boobs are not teaching school -- if we find out, they're out the door.

Are you saying that should be the same policy for men who wear penis suits in your gay pride parade, or are you just giving yet another unsolicited public masturbation exhibition?

When someone lies, I call them on it. It's relevant to point out someone is a liar. So you don't trust what they say is truth.

Equal protection applies to everyone. That's what equal means dummy. Everyone gets it. Even people you hate.

Your argument against polygamy is what I'm talking about dummy. You don't have one except appleas to tradition and some silly nonsense about arithmetic.

You're gonna have to trust I really support SSM. Or else your part in this conversation is idiotic.

Please remember! I support marriage equality and you do not.

Walk me through this Flash OK? We all have the right to equal protection except when it doesn't apply?

You often bring up Mardi Gras as an example, you must think it's a straight only event. How many women have their "boobs hanging out" in a classroom? If a gay wants to teach school, that's fine, as long as they leave their gay activist BS at home.

Okay, you can fire every teacher you find out wore a giant penis suit in a gay pride parade.

Go for it.
