LOL. As opposed to the intellectual banter above?
Thanks for the chuckles.
Is this you attempting to sound intelligent?

How cute.

BTW Rose, why don't you explain to us what exactly you mean by- "How would the founders feel about the Loving v Virginia decision"- if not that of racism?

We will wait.

You really are an idiot aren't you.

Since you can't seem to remember your own nonsense. My response was in regards to your comments regarding- Loving v Virginia, the 13th Amendment and Slavery, and how the Founders would feel about each of them.

This is your post you moron:
"LOL. Actually, the don't matter at all. They are worm poop now, and have been for centuries. Things have changed. Slavery is no longer allowed, 13th Amendment. Women can vote, 19th Amendment. Wonder how they would have felt about Loving v VA. Doesn't matter, what mattered was how the Supreme Court felt about it in 1967."

No mention of the 14th Amendment in your post, just mentions of Slavery and the Loving v Virginia decision, hence my response.

Try to keep up moron.

Actually, the founding fathers had nothing to do with the 14th Amendment. When the Republicans imposed their infamous 14th Amendment, it effectively overturned the Constitution the founding fathers gave us. Its purpose was to punish non-Homosexual White Christian males who objected to the Republican invasion. As you know, the Republican's 14th Amendment enfranchised the Africans while at the same time the Republicans disenfranchised non-Homosexual White Christian males, as well as denying their right to be elected to or to hold public office. Our non-Homosexual founding fathers would turn over in their graves if they knew the right of two persons of the same SEX to marry one another - including the lesbians - was being promoted on "constitutional grounds".

Well, dummy, I said:
"Wonder how they would have felt about Loving v VA.(no mention there of slavery) Doesn't matter, what mattered was how the Supreme Court felt about it in 1967."
The 14th Amendment was sited in Loving v VA. Anybody familiar with the case knows that, there was no need to mention it. Study the case.
"This case presents a constitutional question never addressed by this Court: whether a statutory scheme adopted by the State of Virginia to prevent marriages between persons solely on the basis of racial classifications violates the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment."

You are right. Until the Republicans imposed their infamous 13th Amendment, slavery was never expressly permitted by the Constitution.

I have to chuckle a little when I read you racist, bigoted, haters whining like a little biotch. How does it feel to be powerless to stop the progression of the human race? BTW, you have no idea what our founding people had in mind when they wrote the constitution. Try educating yourself so you donít sound like such a sniveling idiot.

Yes, for you, quotes from the founder's, citations of court cases and direct references to the Constitution do not constitute "substance."

This most certainly is a result of your inability to comprehend such topics and references.

I didn't have to mention the 14th Amendment, anybody familiar with Loving v VA knows it sites the 14th Amendment.
And I said: ""Wonder how they would have felt about Loving v VA.(no mention there of slavery or the 13th Amendment) Doesn't matter, what mattered was how the Supreme Court felt about it in 1967."
I was only wondering about how they would feel about Loving v VA. That's why I didn't mention slavery in that part.

What are you babbling on about? If our non Homosexual founding fathers "had in mind" the "legalization" of unnatural "marriages" between two persons of the same SEX, the African and non-African Homosexuals - as well as the cute little lesbians - would be quoting them, rather than relying on the Republican's dastardly 14th Amendment, an Amendment that was imposed long after the founding fathers had died.

We are not limited to those beliefs held by the founding fathers.

Our freedom of the press is not limited to only ink presses, but has been extended to include the internet.

Freedom expands.

In the history of this country there has been one amendment which sought to curtail freedom. It is also the only amendment we've had to repeal.

Gay marriage is a done deal. Conservatives lost.

Oppose Same-Sex Marriage
by† Doug Mainwaring
within Marriagehttp://www.thepublicdi scourse.com/2013/03/9432/†

March 8th, 2013

While religion and tradition have led many to their positions on same-sex marriage, itís also possible to oppose same-sex marriage based on reason and experience.

I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph,†and there is purpose and worth to each and every life.Ē These words, spoken by Ronald Reagan in 1991, are framed on the wall above my desk. As a gay man, Iíve adopted them as my own, as Iíve entered the national discussion on same-sex marriage.

I wholeheartedly support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, but I am opposed to same-sex marriage. Because activists have made†marriage, rather than civil unions, their goal, I am viewed by many as a self-loathing, traitorous gay. So be it. I prefer to think of myself as a reasoning, intellectually honest human being.

The notion of same-sex marriage is implausible, yet political correctness has made stating the obvious a risky business. Genderless marriage is not marriage at all. It is something else entirely.

Opposition to same-sex marriage is characterized in the media, at best, as clinging to ďold-fashionedĒ religious beliefs and traditions, and at worst, as homophobia and hatred.

Iíve always been careful to avoid using religion or appeals to tradition as Iíve approached this topic. And with good reason: Neither religion nor tradition has played a significant role in forming my stance. But reason and experience certainly have.

Dr. Lamb was cited by the district court for the broad and unqualified conclusions that the ďgender of a childís parent is not a factor in the childís adjustmentĒ and that ďhaving both a male and female parent does not increase the likelihood that a child will be well-adjusted.Ē At trial, however, Dr. Lamb had conceded that his own published research concluded that growing up without fathers had significant negative effects on boys, and that there is data indicating that there are significant differences between men and women in their parental behavior.

At trial, he also conceded that there is considerable research indicating that traditional opposite-sex biological parents appear in general to produce better outcomes for their children than other family structures do.

Keep marriage as is, one an and one woman; keep it simple. Don't risk harming children for imaginary acceptance. Demand acceptance because you are a human being, not for other political reasons.

Reason 21 for keeping marriage as is: KISS, keep it simple.

I applaud Hillary for realizing that homosexual couples deserve the right to marry and be accepted into a society that has been very unfair and brutal to themm. I used to believe that civil unions were the answer, but homosexuals want to be married in order to escape redicule and not be treated as second class citizens.
